E Is for Energy

CROPPED EYou likely hear talk about the importance of time management, but what’s even more critical is managing your energy. That’s because if you lack the energy to accomplish all those things you want and need to do, then it doesn’t matter how much time you have to do it!

Correcting Digestion Issues

Many of our patients come to us complaining of a lack of energy. That’s because, if you’re filling up your “tank” and half the “fuel” is wasted, then your “vehicle” won’t run at peak performance. Correcting digestion not only can increase your energy but it also can help to stabilize blood sugar, which is essential.

Digestion also affects sleep, which is when your body dumps toxins, repairs, rebuilds and restores itself. That’s why it’s vital to get high-quality restorative sleep. Aim to maintain a consistent sleep schedule by going to bed and waking up at the same time every day.

Evaluating Thyroid and Adrenal Gland Function

If your digestion is working well (no bloating, gas, acid reflux, constipation or diarrhea), then I’d recommend we look at how your thyroid and adrenal glands are functioning.

The thyroid plays a crucial role as it regulates your metabolism much like a spark plug ignites the fuel in a car engine. The adrenal glands help to control your blood sugar which is the fuel that runs your vehicle.

If your thyroid and adrenal glands aren’t functioning optimally, we can recommend high- quality, herbal and whole food concentrates that are targeted for supporting those glands.

Ensuring Hydration

Another simple way to get more energy is to stay hydrated. Make sure you drink enough water and fluids throughout the day. Consider keeping a BPA-free reusable water bottle with you throughout the day. Avoid sugary drinks and caffeinated beverages.
