Boost Your Energy the Natural Way

Boost Your Energy the Natural Way

We live in a stress-drenched world that zaps our energy, causes sleep deprivation, and bombards us with nutrient-deficient foods that fill the stomach but do little to meet our daily vitamin and minerals quotas. All of these modern-day hazards lead to fatigue, stress, and depleted energy.

If you are tired of being tired, then why not take some positive steps? Begin with small steps that will pay big dividends.

 

Change Your Shopping Habits

Small steps can start by making sure you’re eating right. The Paleo diet, adapted from the eating habits of our Paleolithic ancestors, prioritizes nuts, fish, meat and the right vegetables. This healthy fat-rich, low-sugar diet, one that is free of most processed foods, is associated with reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and improvements in metabolic health. Followers of a Paleo diet report more energy, better digestion, improved gut health, and more.

Healthy food choices can make all the difference in how you feel. Clear your kitchen cupboards of as many of the sugar-laden, prepackaged, artificially colored and flavored foods. Replace all the junk food with whole and natural choices—when the foods aren't in the cupboard, there is no temptation to eat them.

Refill your cupboards with whole, natural, organic foods like grass-fed meats, cold-water fish, eggs, nuts, seeds, and healthful oils including olive oil, avocado oil, and coconut oil. In addition to eschewing processed foods, try to eliminate sugar, dairy, potatoes, rice, legumes, and cereal grains.

 

Supplements for Great Health

Keep PerfectAmino handy and use it daily. According to Dr. Minkoff, founder of BodyHealth, "Often, a lack of protein can drain energy. A lot of people say they get energy when they take PerfectAmino. All the enzymes in the body which are needed to manufacture energy use amino acids. In fact, the enzymes are made from amino acids and if you don't have enough, then this will help boost your energy."*

Complete+Detox is an absolute health essential as it provides all the supplemental vitamins, minerals and other nutrients your body needs. Taken on a daily basis, you can be sure your nutrient health bases are covered, particularly if you’re eating whole foods.*

And don't forget Kaqun Water. The oxygen in Kaqun Water penetrates the mucous membranes of the stomach and gastrointestinal tract, and then penetrates the tissues. This process occurs quickly, reducing mental and physical fatigue within a short period of time. Regular consumption of the oxygen in Kaqun water facilitates the ongoing repair and regeneration of your cells.*

Make sure you are sleeping well, and getting enough shut-eye—seven to eight hours a night for most people. According to the U.S. National Institutes of Health, "Getting enough quality sleep at the right times helps you function well throughout the day. People who are sleep-deficient are less productive at work and school. They take longer to finish tasks, have a slower reaction time, and make more mistakes."

So if you are ready to feel great, give the suggestions above a try. They've been proven to help undo the mystery of "Why am I always so tired?" They are all natural, affordable and they work! It's a journey that is well worth the effort for all those who want to attain their best energy ever.*

The Truth About Increasing "Energy"
The Truth About Increasing "Energy"

by Dr. David Minkoff October 24, 2019 5 min read

Your average health food store has an entire section devoted to “energy.”

The products on the shelf, with their fancy logos and specially designed packaging, make grandiose claims about what they will do for your “energy levels.”

But the truth?

Most of them are stimulants in disguise, artificially jacking you up to give you the sensation of energy.

But in the end, they do more harm than good. They increase cortisol, cause dehydration, and deplete you.

Because almost none of them do anything on the biological level that supports your real energy system: your mitochondria and metabolism.

That’s why in this article I want to show you what to look for with any new supplement.... and why.

From Sabotage to Success: Navigating the Last 6 Weeks of the Year
From Sabotage to Success: Navigating the Last 6 Weeks of the Year

It’s the “most wonderful time of the year” according to Andy Williams. Or should it be the most wonderFULL time of the year? I’m referring to the last 6 weeks of the year which is fraught with one nutritional landmine after another.

Let’s face it, things like pumpkin pie, stovetop stuffing, eggnog, pumpkin-spiced lattes, peanut brittle, homemade fudge, and divinity only make their appearance during this brief window so we might as well gorge ourselves with as much as we can, right?

No wonder the average American gains 2 to 5 pounds (or more) over the holidays. You’d think we were part bear by eating all…the…things before going into several months of hibernation. Unfortunately, this is a major reason people gradually gain weight over the course of years and decades. Gaining weight is easy while losing it is another story.
