The following article gives some useful information about how you can increase your energy level and the benefits this will give you.

Almost everyone has experienced times when their energy levels were low and they felt exhausted and rundown. However, it is possible to have this happen less often and to lead a more invigorating life.

As part of our regular newsletter there will be examples of how one can boost energy levels and give yourself the best chance of leading a healthy life.

You can improve your energy levels quickly

Energy can be defined as vigour or power in action and vitality and intensity of expression. There is physical, intellectual and emotional energy. In today's society, fatigue or the absence of energy, can be divided into chronic (meaning a prolonged condition) or acute (meaning a temporary lacking of energy).

Chronic Fatigue Symptom (CFS) was first recognised in the mid 1980's as a specific disorder and has been found to affect approximately 30% of women and 20% of men.

Although Western Medicine has attempted to solve the problem of CFS with drugs, CFS has not responded to drug treatment. In treating CFS, one has to be aware of the mind/body connection.

Neuropeptides, chemicals released by our brain every time a thought or feeling occurs, are picked up by receptors on EVERY SINGLE CELL in the body. This includes the digestive system, the heart, lungs, kidneys and the immune system. Most people experiencing CFS have higher levels of emotional , mental and spiritual stress. The neuropeptides released by their brain depress all the cells in the body.

Our modern environment

Complicating the picture is our modern environment. The air we breathe , the water we drink and the food we eat contain the most dangerous chemicals known on this planet. Chemicals that are designed to kill. The buildings and materials that furnish our homes and work places contain toxic compounds that breakdown into formaldehyde.

This is used in the preservation of dead bodies as it kills all living things. By ingesting all these chemicals we are slowly poisoning our bodies. These chemicals not only affect our bodies survival but also affect the chemicals that our brain releases into the body.

Chemical pollutants and the damage they can do

In effect, the chemical pollutants in our society produce the very depression that causes CFS. The solution to CFS is to start a detoxification program designed to rid your body of these dangerous chemicals, toxins and pollutants. Such a program, will enable your body to produce the energy needed and enhance your life. It is not a "quickie" program and there is not a "quickie" answer to CFS. Not only do you have to detoxify your body, but your lifestyle will have to undergo several changes to ensure that CFS does not occur again.

The right herbs and super foods are the answer

Acute energy loss is easily handled by resting, good food and various herbal preparations. If you are suffering from a temporary lack of energy, there are several herbal compounds that you can use to give you a boost.

Ginseng is one of the most famous. Various other herbs singly or in combination could improve energy levels: Wild Yam, Chasteberry, Cayenne, Ginkgo Biloba, Hawthorn, Ginger and Garlic.

To maintain a higher level of energy, take a nutritional supplement which contains all of the green foods such as Spirulina, Chlorella, Algae etc. These kinds of energy food supplements are completely unlike other supplements found on the market.

Instead of being made of chemical derivatives and full of "fillers" like cellulose, soy, lactose, etc., it is made from whole organic or wild harvested foods. These are foods that the body can easily assimilate and use.

Many of these are single celled plants which are easily digestible and assimilated into the bloodstream. They must be organic or wild crafted to ensure that no pesticides or chemicals etc., are being ingested.
