West Island Health ConferencesSue-Anne Hickey - Certified Naturopath

How to Increase Energy Naturally

This is a talk I gave recently. Check back again for my next talks. 

Do you have a hard time getting out of bed?

Do you rely on coffee to wake up?

Does your energy crash after lunch or mid afternoon?

I get it, I used to be the sameMy energy would be up and down all day, I'd be really tired right before lunch and I'd totally crash every afternoon, yawning non-stop for 1/2 hour! 

When I was studying to be a naturopath I discovered the causes of my fatigue, and I made the changes necessary to have non-stop energy all day every day. As a naturopath, I play the detective, asking lots of questions, figuring out the causes of my clients ailments, weight gain or fatigue. 

West Island Health Conferences

What time you wake up at night can indicate
what organ is having challenges!

I find Traditional Chinese Medicine Fascinating! For thousands of years in China they have been healing people with natural herbs and remedies and documenting and categorizing the results.  Where as western medicine is relatively new ( and not doing a very good job, in my opinion!)  

Some people think that it's normal to have less energy as they grow older, but that's NOT true!

West Island Health Conferences

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, each organ has a specific time in which it is at it's peak state of activity, which also can indicate that the organ is in excess. 12 hours opposite that time can indicate when the organ is deficient.

For instance, the liver is at it's peak between 1 and 3 in the morning. So if you often awaken at that time, your liver could be overworking and in excess.  And usually between 1 and 3 PM is the time when your energy drops, when your liver is tired and you feel tired. 

One simple way to help the liver de-congest is to drink a cup of hot water with the juice of 1/2 fresh lemon, first thing every morning. 

For a healthy liver:

  • Diet is key  
  • Reducung the amount of foods you eat that have pesticides and herbicides 
  • Reducing alcohol and coffee
  • Lessening your exposure to chemicals in skin care products and cleaning products
  • and there are many beneficial herbs and supplements to help the liver

That is just one of the points I'll be discussing in my upcoming talk, stay tuned for more info.

I'm sure that there are many hidden causes of fatigue that you probably are not aware of! 

Come and discover all the hidden causes of your fatigue and what to do to have more energy.
