– How To Get It!

– Quality and Form Count!
Energy, more commonly lack of energy, is one of the most frequent
complaints that I hear. Unfortunately, there is not one pill, or
one answer that applies to everyone.
we are energetic beings, meaning that every cell in our body is
alive with electric energy that comes from the right balance of
minerals, fluids, vitamins and other nutrients. If we dont
have the right balance of nutrients in our bodies, we dont
just shrivel up and die, we adapt. Our bodies have incredible wisdom
in each cell that allows us to still function even without optimum
over time is that without the right nutrients, the body has to decide
what absolutely has to run and what can wait until another time.
Another common decision for the body is what to do with the stuff
it just doesnt have time to deal with or doesnt recognize.
The result of these decisions is the story of our personal health.
It is affected by what we eat and drink, what kind of air we breathe,
our thoughts, our emotions, and the stress in our everyday lives.
The body always
does its best with the circumstances it has been given, usually
it just needs some more favorable circumstances so it can function
at its optimum level. Most commonly, a lack of energy is your bodys
way of saying that it is overwhelmed. The trick is to figure out
what is overwhelming it. Is it simply the commitments in your life
such as work, parenting, chores, social obligations, etc.? Or is
it diet and nutrition or a chronic health problem that needs attention?
Or is it a combination of these things?
By now you
have probably figured out that I am not writing about a quick fix.
Occasionally, there are quick fixes such as taking food enzymes
to help you digest your food easily, or adding a super green food
supplement that will supply trace minerals that fuel cellular energy,
or adding a supplement that will nourish the endocrine system such
as the adrenal glands or the thyroid gland.
When I work
with a client to help identify what may be causing overwhelm in
the body, I have 2 basic questions in my mind. The first is to identify
any deficiencies of essential nutrients that may be causing the
body to malfunction. The second is to identify anything that needs
to be eliminated from the body or from the diet so that balance
can be restored. These may include non-beneficial foods, parasites,
environmental toxins, etc.
Lack of energy
normally has something to do with some combination both of these
questions. The answers vary individually, but usually lie in the
nutritional realm. Natural ways to increase energy involve eating
a healthy balanced diet, drinking plenty of water, getting plenty
of rest and using herbs and vitamins to help rebalance the body.
be healthier and more energetic with a diet and lifestyle suited
to the needs of their body.
