If there’s one thing that the large majority of patients I see would like to have help with, it’s increasing their energy. How’s your energy? I mean before the second cup of coffee or foo foo drink from Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts. Are you fatigued? Fatigue is one of the most common complaints in any doctor’s office. Chronic fatigue has become a household phrase. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is becoming one of the most common yet misunderstood diagnoses in America today. There are many reasons for having a lack of energy. Working too many hours, emotional stress, health conditions and even too much late night tv when your favorite show is on. However, there is a very common factor in fatigue. The good news is that there is a simple way to increase your energy and it’s effective and incredibly easy. So what is it?
Remember when you went to a school dance and the boys stood on one side and girls on the other side of the room? Everyone was nervous and wanted to talk to other people but their legs felt like concrete. Your heart was beating faster and you could not think of what to say.
Then the music started. After a few minutes, one of your favorite songs came on and you and your friends looked at each other and were nervous and excited. The next few minutes were a little bit of a blur but the next thing you knew you were standing across from a person and you were both moving your legs, arms and body awkwardly to the beat.
I’m back from my daydream. Thanks for joining me. The point is that there was what we call a catalyst. The music somehow started a reaction inside that helped move everyone across the floor. There is a major catalyst in our bodies that is similar to the most amazing music. It’s called enzymes. Digestive enzymes break down the food into nutrients that we need for every function in our bodies. They have been called the spark of life by some scientists. The food we eat is packed full of these tiny spark plugs. Food comes with enzymes so you can break it down while using very little of your own. This allows you to conserve your energy for other functions. Meanwhile, we consume large amounts of energy drinks and caffeine to get through the day.
So how do we increase our energy 100%? First, we need to start eating whole foods and make sure most of them are fresh and not cooked, micro-waved etc. The second thing we need to do is increase our fresh, clean water intake. Both of these are the easiest and most effective ways to increase your energy through the roof. Try this for one week and let me know how you feel.
