What gives me energy

Since I live with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), I am on a journey to explore how to recover, maintain, and boost energy.

The most important is to regulate my activity level. As much as possible, I rest before, during, and after any activity, and also extra. (The extra rest gives the body energy for healing.) This helps me avoid crashes and it gives my body a chance to stabilize and heal.

Sun and warm temperatures help me a lot. As does eating fresh, seasonal, and ideally local food low on the food chain, and avoiding foods that don’t work well for me (dairy, sugar, processed food).

Receiving Vortex Healing energization helps me greatly. Right now, compressed chi and optimizing the mitochondria seem to work especially well. (I was also apparently able to get rid of a chronic low-grade Epstein-Barr infection with Vortex Healing. This chronic infection prevented my body from healing.)

I take capsules with Siberian ginseng (eleuther) and echinacea.

I drink Stangeland’s herbal tea (Stangelands urtete).

I make and drink bone broth. I cook it for around three days and then freeze it in portions.

I take some vitamin and mineral supplements. In the winter in cold climates, I take cod liver oil daily. I also take vitamin D and B12 and sometimes magnesium.

In periods, I take ginger powder, usually in a cup of hot water, sometimes with raw cacao powder. It helps my digestion (provides metaphorical fire for the digestion), which helps my energy. Cayenne helps me too, in food.

I seem to do the teas and herbs mainly when I am in colder climates, although often in warmer weather as well depending on what I feel I need. I tend to do each one in phases, and if I take more than one on the same day, I usually space them out.

There is a mind side to this too, of course. The more relaxed I am, the better my energy level is. (It takes energy to create stress.) The more I feel safe, at home, and nourished, and the more I experience a sense of meaning, the better it is.
