Suzanne Somers lifts the lid of her active sex life and the & # 39; sex shot & # 39; causing her and her producer husband Alan Hamel to tear each other's clothes off twice a day after nearly 43 years of marriage.
For decades, the actress, 73, has praised bioidentical hormone replacement therapy as her fountain of youth. Now her sexing sessions with Alan, 83, get a boost with photos from PT-141, a melanocortin-based peptide used to generate sexual arousal.
& # 39; I am a bit in that groove, like when you were younger and you were in the mood all the time, and he also because he uses hormone substitutes, & # 39; she told DailyMail.com.
Hot stuff: Suzanne Somers, 73, and her husband Alan Hamel, 83, have boosted their sex lives with recordings of PT-141, a melanocortin-based peptide used to generate sexual arousal
Fountain of youth? For decades they have been taking bio-identical hormones, or hormones made from plants, to keep them young and look young
Suzanne and Alan take bio-identical hormones, or hormones made from plants, to replace everything their bodies lack, according to their laboratory work.
The ThighMaster icon added shots of PT-141 to their routine after it was learned to be one & # 39; sexual stimulus that works on your brain. & # 39;
& # 39; I thought, "Wow, what a great thing." Because men have had Viagra, but this is actually an opportunity for both men and women, that's not medicine, & she explained.
& # 39; It only stimulates that part of your brain that says, "Hey, I'm kind of in the mood." And so isn't that great? And it's not medicine, so I love it. & # 39;
The star of Three & # 39; s Company said she and Alan take a shot of PT-141 about once a week, and although many of their contemporaries can barely get out of bed, they have sex twice a day.
Love at first sight: Suzanne and Alan met 50 years ago in a television studio and she remembered having sex with him on their first date & # 39; in case there was no second & # 39;
Love affair: the author said she and her producer-husband have sex twice a day, although she joked that she usually sleeps through one of them & # 39;
& # 39; I usually say that I sleep through one of them. That is usually the one at 4 o'clock in the morning, & # 39; she joked. & # 39; But you know, then again around 8 o'clock & # 39; In the morning, I am in the mood. & # 39;
It doesn't hurt that Suzanne and Alan have had a magnetic connection since they first met 50 years ago in a television studio.
& # 39; Oh, it's just so beautiful, & # 39; she said. & # 39; I had sex with him on our very first date in case there was no second. I just wanted to be with him that first time. & # 39;
Her fears were unfounded because they married and merged their two families while still having a lot of sex. Suzanne has a son, Bruce, with her first husband, Bruce Somers, while Alan has a son, Stephen, and a daughter, Leslie, with his ex-wife Marilyn Hamel.
Alan stood by her side when she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2000, right around the time she started writing about hormones and their effect on the body.
& # 39; When I heard those words: & # 39; You have cancer, & # 39; I thought: & # 39; What have I done in my diet and lifestyle that I have hosted this annoying disease? & # 39; And when I looked at it, I saw, & Suzanne said.
Support: Alan was by her side when she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2000 (photo). She underwent a lumpectomy to remove the cancer, followed by radiotherapy
Alternative treatment: Suzanne (photo in 2000) led to controversy when she chose to leave chemotherapy in favor of treatment with Iscador, a fermented mistletoe extract
The health guru admitted that she wasn't worried about organic food at the time, and she remembered how she would nervously snack at the artisan service table when she was on set. She also didn't get enough sleep and chose to write her books in the middle of the night instead of resting.
& # 39; I realize afterwards that you should eat as if your life depended on it in today's world, & # 39; she said. & # 39; You have to think positive thoughts, because create thoughts. You have to appreciate sleep. & # 39;
Suzanne underwent a lumpectomy to remove the cancer, followed by radiation therapy, but she caused controversy when she chose to abandon chemotherapy in favor of treatment with Iscador, a fermented mistletoe extract.
Nearly 20 years later, she insisted that she never lay down & # 39; chemotherapy & # 39 ;, she just knew it wasn't good for her.
& # 39; The idea to fight cancer with aggressive chemical toxins. I just couldn't take it into account, & she explained. & # 39; At the time, my doctor said: & # 39; You are dying. & # 39; I said: "Honestly, with all due respect, I think I will die if I do what you tell me to do."
She also defied her doctor's orders by refusing to give up the hormones she took to fight menopause.
Looking back: the actress, who started with hit shows such as Three & # 39; s Company (photo), believes that her diet and lifestyle have led to her cancer development
Past mistakes: Suzanne (photo in 1982) said she ate nervous junk food at the craft service table when she was on the set and would stay up overnight to write her books instead of sleeping
Advice: Suzanne takes a & # 39; high-fat, vegetable and protein-rich diet & # 39; with organic food. & # 39; You should eat as if your life depends on it in today's world, & # 39; she said
& # 39; I thought it was great at the time that there was so much criticism & # 39 ;, she said. & # 39; I thought, "Shouldn't we all be able to choose what we want?"
In Suzanne's eyes, her relentless belief in her alternative treatments is almost as important as the treatments themselves.
& # 39; We make the difference & # 39 ;: Suzanne said she admires fellow actress and lifestyle guru Gwyneth Paltrow & # 39;
& # 39; Maybe I am completely wrong, but my brain believes I am here. Woo-hoo, "she said laughing.
The author, whose 27th book & # 39; A New Way to Age & # 39; comes out in January, emphasizing that she is not a doctor and never hears the word & # 39; says; she just shares what worked for her.
& # 39; I didn't want to be apostate or controversial, & # 39; she said. & # 39; If you knew me, I would be the last person to do that, but it started with cancer and cancer has become a veiled gift for me. I learned all about it. It has put me on this road. & # 39;
In addition to her books, she has developed everything from her own organic cleaning products to her recently launched beauty-free beauty line, Suzanne Organics.
She praises a & # 39; high-fat, vegetable and protein-rich diet & # 39; with organic food and speaks passionately about things that she believes have enriched her life – whatever her critics say.

The controversies of the actress related to businesswomen are similar to those of Gwyneth Paltrow, 47, who has spawned alternative wellness advice such as vaginal steaming on her lifestyle website, Goop.
Although Suzanne admitted she & # 39; not so well-known & # 39; is with Goop, she thinks Gwyneth & # 39; does wonderful things & # 39 ;.
& # 39; I was probably the first to do this. We make the difference, & she said. & # 39; I feel it. I know and I admire her. It's nice to find a productive use for your louder voice, and that's what being a celebrity.
& # 39; You can use it for the better good, and that is what I am trying to do with my voice. I'm not political. I don't get involved in something like that, & she added. & # 39; I think what I do is controversial enough. I eat organic food and sleep eight hours a night without drugs. That is my controversy. & # 39;
Suzanne is firmly convinced that we are in control of our happiness and every morning when she wakes up, she imagines she isolates one of her body cells and tells everything she loves in her life.
& # 39; Now those little boys have to tell all the other 40 trillion cells: & # 39; Okay, we love our lives. We love our husband. We love our food. We love our work. We love that we live in America. & # 39; It creates happiness, & she explained.

She also advises her readership to be naked with their partners and to exchange & # 39; electrons & # 39; by holding each other. Although it may seem crazy, there are certainly some advantages. Skin-to-skin contact causes a release of oxytocin, known as the & # 39; love hormone & # 39 ;.
Regarding anti-aging, Suzanne is all for using creams and serums, but she believes that & # 39; keep your inside young & # 39; will manifest on the outside. Above all, she said that everyone should appreciate & # 39; good thoughts & # 39 ;, because & # 39; you think who you will be & # 39 ;.
& # 39; The beauty of aging is wisdom and perspective. It is the only thing that no young person can buy or have & # 39 ;, she said about the things she has learned over the years.
The Step by Step star celebrated its 73rd birthday on October 16 by posing nude in a field with yellow flowers. She shared the cheek shot on Instagram and wrote: & # 39; Here I am 73 in my birthday party !!! & # 39;
Not only does she look great, but she also has a youthful exuberance that she claims to make her inside work to the maximum.
& # 39; I feel that the older I get, the better it is for my brand because I live the life I am writing about & she said DailyMail.com. & # 39; I'm living this big love affair and I'm having a chat. So the older I get, the better it is because people go, "Well, look what she did."
