About the Author

First and foremost, Christine DeLozier, L.Ac., is a lover of science, of nature and of food. As an acupuncturist and herbalist in private practice, she specializes in sexual health, treating males, females, and all orientations and identities. Acupuncture is great for sexual function, but to address the underlying mechanics of consistently great sex, the key is diet. For this reason, she works with patients to develop dietary habits that support their sexual goals. Christine attended the University of Rochester, studying Biology and Psychology. As a young single mom, she worked as a waitress and studied full-time. She started in a program which trains students to be research scientists, but ultimately decided against a career in research. The experience, though, gave her an appreciation for the scientific method, which is employed throughout this book. She has exhaustively reviewed epidemiological and clinical research on nutrition and sexual function to shape the advice presented here. Christine holds Master's degrees in Acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and Counseling. During her education, she studied Chinese dietary therapy, and earned a certification as a Holistic Nutritional Counselor. Early in her practice, she treated numerous men for erectile issues with acupuncture, who ended up having significant improvements in sexual satisfaction. After seeing how meaningful this improvement was to their lives, she specialized in sexual health, expanding her practice to all who seek it. She wanted to do more to help them connect with their partners and bring joy to their relationships. Since then she has treated adults looking to have great sex of all orientations. Always rather obsessed with diet, nutrition, and natural health, Christine's philosophy is rooted in an evidence-based understanding of the physiological effect of food on the body, while honoring the wisdom of traditional Chinese medicine. She treats every patient holistically, as an individual and wishes to use her unique skill set to help others in a kind, loving way.

Full Review:

Christine DeLozier's DIET FOR GREAT SEX opens with two fictitious characters eager to go to bed together, while simultaneously feeling uncertain about their own bodies and sexual prowess. The book covers much ground, offering information about the science of achieving great sex: healthy hormones, nerve transmission, and blood flow while exploring ancient wisdom from medicinal plant use and aphrodisiacs to pleasurable reciprocity with sexual partners. Equally impressive, this unique volume deals with matters that concern both women and men, as well as a rainbow of sexual orientations, since having great sex is a subject of interest to pretty much everyone. As a practicing acupuncturist, DeLozier has come to the aid of patients dissatisfied with-not only their sex lives-but also an inability to fully enjoy life overall.

Somehow humanity's modern-day hustle-which includes exposure to too many toxins, along with not enough genuine connection and self-actualized peace-has become a vast barrier keeping people from regularly getting to savor gratifying sexual experiences. But the wall is not impenetrable, and it need not be permanent. Qi/chi can be restored. Nerve pathways can clear. Adequate blood flow and hormone production can be re-stimulated. Vitality and a sense of exuberant joie de vivre can return. Since a healthy diet is imperative towards attaining things like reduced cortisol and normalized testosterone levels, the author goes the extra mile of not only outlining what types foods (i.e. organic) one should be eating, she also provides easy and delectable recipes along with fun, behind-the-scenes facts/stories about recommended food items. Readers are likely to find themselves scurrying off to the nearest farmer's market and health food store in search of oyster mushrooms or cruciferous vegetables like cauliflower and collard greens (known to benefit the endocrine system and prevent all kinds of diseases that tend to affect not only happiness in the bedroom, but also obesity, Type 2 diabetes, cancer, etc. What if one knows they are not particularly skilled at the actual mechanics of sex? Tips for learning how to get better at this activity are also provided.
