For a man, few things are as embarrassing and frustrating as dealing with a loss of libido. This loss of sexual interest is something that medical science has been working on for decades, and quick and anonymous "treatment" is pitched by countless late-night infomercials. You could seek the advice of your health care professional on how to overcome this, or you could attempt a few homemade tips to counteract the loss of libido and enjoy a healthy sex life again.

Garlic is one of nature's aphrodisiacs. It has been used for centuries to counteract the loss of libido in both males and females. Chew two to three cloves of garlic each day. If you don't want to go around with extremely toxic garlic breath, you can purchase garlic supplements from your local health food store and take them according to the supplier's instructions.

Coriander is a well-known libido enhancer. Coriander has been around for centuries and has been used to treat a multitude of conditions. Put coriander leaves with several teaspoons of coriander oil in a pot, along with 2 cups of water. Bring the concoction to boil and after it has started boiling, place the lid on and allow to steep for at least 15 minutes. When finished, dispose of the leaves and ingest 2 to 4 tbsp. of the fluid each day.

Black Raisins

Black raisins are a less frequently used treatment for libido issues. Raisins with milk can boost your libido in no time--simply place black raisins in a pan, cover them with milk and boil them until you achieve a rolling boil. The raisins will absorb the milk and become swollen. Once the raisins are done boiling, dispose of the milk and keep only the raisins. Eating four rations (of one cup each), three times a day, may increase your libido greatly.

Depending on how serious the lack of libido is, it may take several days until you start to see results. Do not start any homeopathic or natural treatments until you have first consulted with your medical professional. Many herbal supplements and natural remedies have not been tested and proven effective through clinical trials approved by the Food and Drug Administration.
