There are hundreds of alternative treatments that people may claim are effective for improving a low sex drive. However, many of these options are not backed up by any kind of scientific evidence. Many herbal supplements - including ginkgo biloba, sarsaparilla, and goat weed - supposedly improve sex drive in both men and women. Diet may also affect your sex drive, so it's recommended that people eat certain foods like eggs, avocados, figs, and garlic. Other alternative options may include exercise, sun exposure, and avoiding alcohol. Some people suggest "spicing up" your sex life - by having sex in new locations, positions, or times, you may increase your sex drive.
