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 Link Between Depression, Antibiotics, and the Life Saving Benefits of Good Gut Flora
The Link Between Depression, Antibiotics, and the Life Saving Benefits of Good Gut Flora

Physicians over thousands of years have observed a link between a patient’s mental state and how swiftly they recover. It is a long-standing axiom that people who are determined to get better and maintain a healthy frame of mind recover more quickly, with better results.

But what if we told you that it’s a two-way street? That specific health conditions can cause conditions like depression and anxiety?

In 1931, decades before the first antidepressant and antianxiety medications had been developed, a physician named Yaskin discovered that clinical depression is the earliest manifestation of pancreatic cancer. Further research demonstrated that patients who suffered from gastrointestinal malignancies carried the greatest risk of suicide – which was one of the first science-based flags indicating that the digestive system can have an impact on mental health.

The simplest way to reduce toxins in your body is to avoid them. Despite today’s crazy world that has toxins everywhere, there are steps you can take that will reduce your toxin intake. This gives your body a chance to get rid of the “backlog” and catch up.

  1. Eat ORGANIC. One of the most important ways to reduce toxicity is to eat foods that are certified organic. Not only do these foods contain higher nutrient densities to supply your body with what it needs, but they are free from the pesticides and chemicals present in most food.
  2. Avoid exercising and training in a densely populated city (when possible). As an athlete, your respiratory system is much more active – and training in a city with high levels of pollution means you are inhaling toxins just by breathing.
  3. Avoid any household products that have artificial fragrances. Artificial fragrances are toxic and should be avoided.
  4. Stay away from pesticides.
  5. Avoid highly-processed foods, as these are generally chock full of toxic chemicals.
  6. Stay away from products that contain BPA, which means avoiding plastic bottles, cardboard, and cans as much as possible.
  7. Avoid the use of non-stick cookware, as the coating contains harmful chemical compounds that can enter your food and be consumed.

Elderberry, also known as Sambucus nigra, has been used for centuries as a natural herbal remedy for those who fall ill.

Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, referred to elderberry as “nature’s medicine chest,” and it has been noted as early as the 5th century BC as a medicinal tonic – forever cementing it as a staple in human nutrition.

But, it wasn’t until recently that we understood WHY it is so helpful to the body. And with this understanding came advanced methods of harnessing the incredible power of this medicinal plant.
