What helps my physical energy

 

Here are some things I have found helps my physical energy.

Herbs. Adaptogens can be very helpful, along with more targeted herbs. I have been greatly helped by taking certain herbs under the guidance of an experienced herbalist. (Right now, I take eleuthero, echinacea, and kapikachu.)

Bone broth. This also helps my deep physical energy. Here is the recipe I use:

Roast bones, 375 degrees, 25-30 min.

Cover with water, add 2 table spoons of apple cider vinegar. Use a slow cooker if you can.

Simmer on low heat, cover with water. (Leave the foam bc of nutrients).

Replenish water as needed.

Simmer for 48 hours.

Cool rapidly, freeze in small(ish) portions – for instance in small containers or ice cube trays. Use in meals or take as broth daily, especially during fall and winter.

Nature. Rest. Food. Spending time in nature. Get plenty or rest and sleep. (Live well within my means when it comes to energy.) Eat low on the food chain. Eat mostly unprocessed foods. Chose foods that work for my system. (In my case, mostly avoid sugars, dairy, and wheat. Eat cooked food during cold months, and more raw foods when it’s warm. Since I have dampness in my system, foods with heat help my energy.)

Vortex Healing. Vortex Healing has helped me greatly over the last year or so. My digestion is much better than it was, as is my general energy level. And it continues to improve.

Initial draft…..

Due to the chronic fatigue (CFS) I have had an opportunity to explore what best supports my physical stamina and energy. Here is what I have found helps the most:

Herbs. It’s important to get individualized advice from a good herbalist. In my case, I take nearly a tablespoon of Russian ginseng (eleuthero) and echinacea each morning, and now also kapikachu. Eleuthero and kapikachu are strengthening, and echinacea helps the immune system. When I take these herbs, I also don’t seem to get seasonal infections.  I buy the powder (from Mountain Rose) and fill my own capsules.

Bone broth. Bone broth is very strengthening, and it makes use of what’s generally considered a waste product these days (bones). I add the broth to soups, stews, and other dinner dishes, and sometimes take it as a broth. It’s pretty straight forward to make. Here is the recipe I am using:

Roast bones, 375 degrees, 25-30 min.

Cover with water, add 2 table spoons of apple cider vinegar. Use a slow cooker if you can.

Simmer on low heat, cover with water. (Leave the foam bc of nutrients).

Replenish water as needed.

Simmer for 48 hours.

Cool rapidly, freeze in small(ish) portions – for instance in small containers or ice cube trays.

Nature. Rest. Food. Spending time in nature, getting enough sleep and rest, and eating seasonally, locally, and low on the food chain helps me. Also, I tend to minimize sugars, dairy, wheat, and anything refined since I find these tend to impact my energy.

Vortex Healing. More recently, what’s helped me most significantly is Vortex Healing.
