Taking Charge of Your Health


If you are suffering from fatigue or exhaustion,
there is hope! As is the case with any health problem, the best approach to permanent relief
is to evaluate and treat the cause. Some areas to investigate when fatigue or exhaustion
are a problem include: the quality and amount of sleep we get, our overall stress levels,
the quality of our diet, the presence of anemia, food allergens or intolerances, nutrient deficiencies,
chronic viral infections, hypothyroidism, adrenal insufficiency, age related hormone
decline, side effects of medications, difficulties with blood sugar regulation, immune system
dysregulation such as allergies or autoimmune conditions, and mitochondrial disorders. To
start with, here are 5 suggestions that can help us all improve overall health, and therefore
increase our energy levels: 1. Get enough rest. Aim for 8 hours of sleep every night.
2. Clean up your diet. Focus on an organic whole food diet, free of sugar, processed
food and artificial additives. a. Add lots of produce into your diet!!! b. In addition
to all of your favorite ways to eat veggies, introduce green vegetable juice into your
life! Juicing our vegetables is a terrific way to add far more vitamins, minerals and
enzymes into our bodies than we could ever possibly eat. My favorite green juice recipe
is made of Cucumber, Celery, Kale, Spinach, Parsley, Mint, Turmeric Root, Lemon, and Green
Apple. I highly recommend watching the documentary Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead, which you can
find on YouTube. Individuals with medical conditions that restrict minerals or vitamin
K will need to discuss juicing with a doctor prior to beginning. c. Next, Minimize or eliminate
alcohol consumption. d. And finally, keep high glycemic foods down to a minimum. 3.
Add a high quality B complex supplement to your daily routine. The B complex product
I prescribe in my practice is called B complex plus by Klaire labs. 4. Get some daily movement
in…a 30-minute walk is a great start! 5. Have a look at your overall stress levels
and how you are coping. Think about healthy practices that you can add to your life to
effectively reduce your stress levels. Here are a few thoughts: a. Add positive affirmations
and mantras into your daily routine. Check out the work of Louise Hay if you aren’t
already familiar with how to create and use positive affirmations. b. Add in daily joy
and beauty practices. This can look like buying yourself flowers, listening to your favorite
music, exercising, or taking an art class. Enjoy your daily life! c. Reflect upon the
fact that you matter and take time to journal daily on ways that you are succeeding in taking
care of your health and happiness. Note areas of growth you are pleased with and goals you
have met. Also note areas that have been challenging for you and brainstorm on what additional
support would help you. d. Work with a therapist who can partner with you and broaden your
stress coping tool bag. A naturopathic doctor will be able to help you evaluate and treat
the cause of your fatigue and exhaustion. Naturopathic doctors are trained in both conventional
and natural medicine practice, and specialize in treating disease with safe and effective
natural medicine therapies. Like and Share this video to spread the word about naturopathic
