What I love as much as anything about this episode is Dr John Gray became popular in the 80’s and 90’s. Today, in 2022, he got lit up during this episode. He is still as passionate and purposeful about what he is doing as ever. My wish for myself and for you is that we all have that kind of purpose-driven passion in our lives for as long as possible.
John Gray is the author of the most well-known and trusted relationship book of all time, Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus. USA Today listed his book as one of the top 10 most influential books of the last quarter-century. In hardcover, it was the #1 bestselling book of the 1990s. Dr. Gray’s books are translated into approximately 45 languages in more than 100 countries and continues to be a bestseller.
Dr. Gray has written over 20 books. His most recent book is Beyond Mars and Venus. His Mars/Venus book series has forever changed the way men and women view their relationships.
John helps men and women better understand and respect their differences in both personal and professional relationships. His approach combines specific communication techniques with healthy, nutritional choices that create the brain and body chemistry for lasting health, happiness, and romance.

Libido and Hormone balance questions we answer in this episode:
04:48 Both my husband and I took early retirement … (we’re together a lot, he occupies a lot of my time and I have less freedom than I thought retirement was going to give) and our sex life isn’t great, what do we do?
13:20 Does it help men produce testosterone when a woman asks him for help?
I’m married, my husband works outside the home running his own business…and I’m running my own business from home… we’re both busy making a ton of decisions all day… It’s not easy to shift gears and connect at night. You had me at libido, any suggestions. Most women want to chat but even with girl friends I tend to be kind of “done talking” after a day.
26:20 I’m single, and distance relationship, I run a business and the last time we were together there weren’t any sparks…. Like any physical chemistry… it’s never been like that before. What’s that about?
37:51 What are your views of hormone replacement?
