What Does Fatigue Have To Do With Aging?

Hope you have enjoyed Step 1 and 2 of this series. Now let’s get into some new information.

Anyone ever heard of autophagy? It’s the process of cellular recycling. The body breaks down the old protein cells that are used or damaged each day and rebuilds new healthy ones.
After all you can’t feel energized running on worn out cells! Scientist show the better you have autophagy the better you feel and longer you live. Maintaining clean cells slows down the aging process.
So, how do you increase autophagy? You amplify the circadian rhythms. Your body clock. And to do this is very simple. Block the artificial lights in the evening. Blue light prevents melatonin from being excreted which signals night. That blunts the circadian rhythm and decreases cellular rejuvenation.
Whether you choose to go with blue-blocking screens, electronic abstinence for a couple hours prior to bedtime, or blue-blocking sunglasses, you simply must find a way to eliminate your evening exposure to blue light.
To increase this effect even further drink water first thing in the morning. This helps the body go even deeper into cleaning out those aged cells.

So far, we have three steps to amp-up energy:
1. Stay away from stimulates
2. Intermittent fasting
3. Blocking artificial light in the evening and water first thing in the morning.
Seem too simple? Just wait and see how you respond!

Two Secret Keys to Beating Fatigue

There two secret keys to beating fatigue and getting your energy back.

There are times of the day when the body is getting rid of toxic cells (that cause crippling exhaustion) and times when it is rebuilding healthy cells that flood the body with energy.

Makes sense, right?  We get the mentality that if we aren’t moving our body is not working and that is just not true.

At a cellular level the body is working hard to clear metabolic waste and toxins we absorb. But here is the trick.  We rarely let it rest!

Without the time to CLEAN HOUSE from those toxic by-products our system does not work efficiently and slows down.   Nutrients don’t get sent to the brain and muscles, you ache, feel foggy headed and in general terrible.

Also, we need repair time.  Periods where we are in repair mode to rejuvenate the system for maximum energy.

So, what is the answer?  Don’t eat! (just kidding) But the fact is the healthiest cultures on earth do not eat 24/7 like Americans do.

The most efficient method is intermittent fasting.  Basically, you eat within an 8-hour period per day and fast for 16.

If you need to eat in the evening move your eight hours later.

If you start at 11am, stop at 7pm.   Skipping breakfast will not kill you.  That is another myth of the breakfast foods industry.

As you start to make these changes to your routine you will lose weight as your metabolism becomes more efficient.  Better yet the cells will clear out the toxins and you will start to regain some vitality.

 

Stay tuned for Step 3

Have you been struggling with fatigue?

tired man

Perhaps you have been diagnosed with adrenal fatigue, fibromyalgia, or chronic fatigue syndrome and are seriously wondering if you’ll ever feel well again.

Or maybe you haven’t seen a doctor and gotten any official diagnosis, but all you know is that you feel exhausted every day and just don’t have the energy to do all the things you used to do?

There is breakthrough science that is digging deep into the reason for this crippling fatigue.

Now I am not talking about quick fixes or band-aids to hide it. But over the next week I will be letting you in on the steps to get back on your feet and running!

 

All right Step One:

Break the coffee habit. (I didn’t say this was going to be easy)

Caffeine has a bad habit of lowering your baseline energy. When you get a pop of energy its because you lowered the bar.

Start with using decaf for a few days then ween off until you are OK.  You can use decaffeinated herbal teas like peppermint, orange, hibiscus, ginger… you get the idea.

Ok that’s enough for day 1.

Here’s is to your energy and renewal!

8 Foods That Shrink Belly Fat

Bet you didn’t know that apples help shrink the fat. apple-3313209_960_720   Losing weight and regaining it seems to plaque too many of us.   The dreaded yo-yo dieting ends up causing extra pounds to creep up.  The trick to permanent weight loss is shrinking the fat cells!

It seems that certain foods make fat loss much easier so here is a list of the foods you need to know and I bet some will surprise you.

Apples

The pectin found in apple limits the amount of fat absorbed by cells.  Antioxidants in apples may lower the risk for metabolic syndrome, a condition where the waist thickens. Helps cleanse out excess toxins in the digestive tract also.

Citrus Fruit

Citrus fruit such as grapefruit, tangerines, papaya, lime and tomatoes are rich in vitamin C, which participates in the fat burning process. Vitamin C also stimulates carnitine. This amino acid enhances the body’s capacity to burn

Tomato juice

 has also been shown to increase adiponectin, a protein that helps to break down body fat.  You can add a dash of cayenne pepper to really rev up fat burning.

Salmon

omega-3 in wild salmon help improve insulin sensitivity, which shrinks fat from your waistline

Cruciferous vegetables

Vegetables like cabbage, broccoli, Brussel sprouts stimulate an enzyme that tells your fat cells to burn fat.

Avocado

It switches off the body’s fat storage hormones. Eating half a medium-sized avocado on a daily basis was highly correlated with improved overall diet quality and a 50 percent reduced risk of metabolic syndrome.

Brazil Nuts

They’re actually little fat-burners. They help boost the metabolism by converting the thyroid hormone to its active form.

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is rich in medium-chained-triglycerides (MCTs), which your body preferentially uses for energy, leaving less opportunity for them to be stored as fat

So there you have it.  Here is to your success!

My Favorite Choices for a Natural Medicine Cabinet

Choosing to use natural remedies opens so many choices for our health and wellbeing.  These are some of chemical-free favorites and should be in everyone’s medicine cabinet.

For Pain issues and  help with inflammation.

Turmeric capsules

Omega 3 essential fatty acids

Epsom salts(magnesium)

 Doterra Deep Blue and Copaiba essential oils

 

Sleep issues: to help calm and relax 

Magnesium at bedtime

Serotonin supplement (if not on anti-depressants)

Valerian root herb –very relaxing.

Passion flower herb – calming

Probiotic daily –  serotonin is made in the gut.

Vetiver and lavender on bottom of feet for a racing mind.

 

Wounds, scraps and burns:

Here’s what you’re going to need:
½ cup of aloe vera juice
• 25 drops lavender essential oil
• 25 drops melaleuca essential oil
• 4oz squeeze bottle

Doterra Lavender essential oil is also great for burns and bug bites

Vitamin D -optimizes healing

 

Teeth and gums:

Salt is a highly useful home remedy for cavities due to its high levels of anti-bacterial and antiseptic properties. Salt will allow for the pain and inflammation to be reduced.

Doterra Melaleuca essential oil – rub around gums to kill germs

On Guard toothpaste –great tasting and contains clove oil.  Cloves are one of the most vital ingredients in fighting cavities naturally. Due to the high properties of anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and analgesic properties, clove can help to soothe any pain caused by the cavity.

 

Stomach Issues

Activated charcoal – fast and effective to stop diarrhea or food poisoning.

Pb assist by Doterra is enteric coated probiotic.   Therefore, it’s not destroyed in the stomach as many probiotics are.

Digestive enzymes – breakdown the food to prevent reflux and gas.

DigestZen by Doterra –  super fast, rub over abdominal area or throat to stop discomfort.

 

As you can see, I use essential oils for many health issues and I chose Doterra because they are chemically pure and therapeutic in effect.  Not all products can be taken internally so you need to be very careful to buy only quality products.

Hope you build your natural medicine cabinet and see how powerful and effective holistic choices can be.  I would love to hear your comments and check out my website  http://www.doctorleesa.com for more tips for healthy living.
