What if I were to tell you there was a pill you could take three times a week that would give you the following health benefits:
- Lower your risk of heart attack and stroke
- Reduce symptoms of depression
- Reduce risk of certain types of cancers
- Boost self-esteem and improve your mental health
- Reduce and relieve stress
- Help you sleep better
- Control your weight
- Increase your physical fitness
- Relieve pain
- Reduce the number of colds and flu
- Boost your immune system
- Improve bladder function
- Make you look younger
- Improve your reproductive health
- Prolong your life
And on top of these incredible benefits, this pill has no side effects, is completely safe, and it’s free! What would most people say? “Man, give me some of that!” Everyone would be in line trying to get the Wonder Drug. Point of fact, there is such a thing: it’s called sex. Studies have shown that sex has amazing health benefits. But let me point out that it’s not just any old sex—these studies show that the benefits do not come with the hot and heavy rush of new romance or illicit sex, but rather the sex that is a by product of a calm, stable, committed marriage. It’s not just sex. It’s long-term, married sex that is the Wonder Drug.
Researchers at Queens University have found that couples who have sex three times a week reap the benefits of it, including cutting the risk of heart attack and stroke in men by half. Women are always trying to get their husbands to eat better and exercise to improve their health, and that’s all fine, well and good. But no salad or morning jog can do all of the things that a healthy sex life can.
Another benefit is fewer colds and flu according to a Wilkes University in Pennsylvania study that says individuals who have sex once or twice a week show 30% higher levels of an antibody which is known to boost the immune system… Sex actually keeps you healthier!
In addition, other studies have found that hormones released during sex and found in semen can reduce depression, relieve pain of everything from migraines to arthritis to PMS. The same hormones can help improve sleep—even in those who suffer from insomnia, and they also reduce stress and improve mental health.
Check it out! These are just a few of the details on these studies! Yet, if I said this to women, the vast majority of them would snarl at me and say, “I’m not doing that!” This is absurd! This “miracle drug” is out there, free for the taking. This is one of the most beneficial things two human beings can do. Truly there is nothing else that exists that can do what sex does—yet the majority of people don’t take advantage of it.
We’ll do all kinds of other things, diets, exercise, medications, procedures, etc.—some with incredible side effects and risks associated with them, but we can’t manage to do the one thing that is risk-free and has been proven to improve not only your health, but your marriage as well. Wake up people! It’s time that we discover the Wonder Drug!
