Sexual Healing for Cold & Flu Prevention | Energetic Health

Calling Dr. Love: Welcome to the first in our series on sex. It seems sex is integral to our health! Stay tuned...

Research has shown that frequent sexual activity — having an orgasm at least twice a week — can keep you from getting sick this winter. Individuals who engage in regular sexual activity have been shown to produce higher levels of immunoglobulin (IGA), an anti-body that can prevent susceptibility to catching minor colds and flus.

IGA is the dominant antibody in your body's defense system; it is present in saliva and mucosal lining and works as a barrier at the most common points of entry for germs that make you sick.

In a study conducted by Wilkes-Barre University in Pennsylvania, IGA levels were revealed to be significantly higher — at least 33 percent higher — in people that had regular sex with a partner than those who had less frequent sexual encounters. Regardless of length or the emotional health of the relationships, the benefits as a result of sexual activity were the same in the study participants. Not that we're advocating doing it with just anyone!
