There is an energy crisis in America but not for want of fossil fuel,
natural gas or even solar and wind power. This crisis exists on a
personal level. It is common and widespread, affecting most
Americans daily. Technically speaking, it is known as anergy,
aka lack of energy; but to the average person, it is known as
fatigue: the state of being just plain tired, worn out or too
pooped to participate. While many equate lack of energy to
a sign of growing old, research shows that energy levels are
not related to age as much as they are to lifestyle factors, the
sources of which are both numerous and surprising.
Energy: What is it?
Technically, energy is power. Noah Webster in his 1928 Dictionary
states: 'energy is power exerted; vigorous operation; force; vigor.'
the power of operating, whether exerted or not; as men possessing
energies sometimes suffer them to lie inactive.' Power is therefore
a driving force if not the driving force behind all life. Without it, life
does not exist.
Research shows that the human body is a finely-designed machine
that runs on electricity and therefore must be powered up in order
to function. If the body is properly maintained, it has the necessary
energy to perform. Conversely, a poorly-maintained body will be
unable to function well. Assessing energy out-put can thus be
likened to gasoline octane levels, performance being equated
to differences in fuel quality.
Energy: crisis management
When energy levels drop, most Americans commonly solve
- reaching for something sweet: a candy bar, ice
- reaching for a caffeinated beverage: soft drink,
coffee, 'smart' water, energy drink
- heading to the couch or recliner
- taking a nap
- calling the doctor
- taking drugs (pharmaceutical or other)
While the above are popular ways to increase energy,
these strategies are short-termed and ultimately do not
solve the body's energy problem. On the contrary, they
constitute a quick fix that often leads to the encouragement
of unhealthy appetites and habits.
Energy: identifying the drain
Sadly, most Americans opt for quick fixes to solve their
energy drain rather than investigate the cause. Nevertheless,
sourcing the problem is a matter of fact not fiction. Science
proves that lack of energy is commonly caused by
- Poor diet- predominately cooked, processed,
animal-based foods/food additives and preservatives
that are nutritionally inferior
- Poor digestion
- Lack of essential nutrients- Vitamin D3, B Vitamins,
magnesium, calcium, iodine, etc.
- Lack of sleep- insomnia
- Low endrocrine system- low adrenal/thryoid function
- Parasites- rob the body of essential nutrients
- Toxicity- heavy metals and/or chemicals in food, water,
air, furniture, clothing, household cleaners, etc.
- Lack of exercise- a largely sedentary lifestyle
- Radiation- exposure to microwave radiation in tech
devices and medical tests, nuclear fallout, and more
- Existing or underlying health problem(s)
- Negative thinking- personal and collective
While any one of the above in itself is a potential cause
of fatique, lack of energy is often a compound problem in
that it often involves several, contributing factors. Pulling
out of one's energy slump can thus become a journey in
identifying and then correcting the body's shortfalls so
that it can perform well...with optimum energy.
Energy: where to find it
Contrary to popular opinion, corporate monopolies,
government regulations and mandates as well as
environmental activists, energy is free. Nevertheless,
tapping into it for the sake of energizing the body remains
a mystery to most people. Unravelling this mystery proves
that the human body a unique, closed system that does not
require an outside force to power it. It does not need to be
plugged in, wired up, or piped, for it has its own power plant.
It manufactures all the power that it needs within its over
one hundred trillion cells. Each cell acts like a mini battery or
solar cell to produce electrical charges. The body's energy
level depends on how well its many cells are charged. Lack
of energy is a sign that cells are insufficiently-charged.
Energy: solving the crisis
Restoring power to the body must therefore be addressed
on the cellular level which requires personal investigation
and introspection. The following check list serves as a
basic guideline for solving one's energy crisis.
- Improve your diet- begin eating organic,
living foods: fresh fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds,
and whole grains in their raw, natural state. Living
foods contain living nutrients- vitamins, minerals,
oxygen, distilled water, phytonutrients, antioxidants,
- Improve your digestion- avoid eating non-foods
and limit cooked food intake; supplement with a
good probiotic; eat fermented foods (Kimchi,
sauerkraut, Miso, etc.)
- Supplement (where necessary)- Vitamin D3,
B Vitamins, magnesium, calcium, iodine, etc.
- Get adequate rest
- Support your endrocrine system (where
necessary)- boost adrenal/thyroid functions
with natural supplements
- Clean out parasites- do a whole body cleanse
- Toxicity- avoid heavy metal exposure; use natural
products; cleanse the liver to achieve optimum energy
- Exercise daily- walk, rebound, stretch; move!
- Radiation- protect against radiation exposure
from tech devices; eliminate microwave ovens.
- Existing or underlying health problem(s)-
search out possible stumbling blocks
- Be a person of faith- build your life according
to the word of YHVH and entertain thoughts
that edify yourself and the body of Messiah.
While all of the above guidelines contribute to correcting
the body's overall energy shortfall, the greatest cause of
lack of energy is POOR DIET. A nutritionally poor diet does
not nourish body cells and leaves them without the necessary
nutrients to manufacture energy. The Standard American Diet
of cooked, processed, animal-based foods does not supply
the nutritional support for cellular energy production, because
it is a dead diet. The body is a living organism that requires
living foods to function by powering up its myriad of cells.
Dietary choices thus have a direct relation to the body's
energy level and living foods prove to be the best
source for overall wellness and peak energy
It is natural and normal for the body to be tired at the end
of the day, for the body does require rest. However, it is
unnatural to feel tired most of the time. Research proves
that lack of energy is largely a sign that the body is
undernourished and toxic. Until these factors are corrected,
energy levels will continue at a low ebb in what could
become a dangerous decline.
If we expect to pull our bodies out of an energy slump,
we must work in harmony with the body so that it can be all
that it was created to be. In short, we must learn to be good
stewards of the body that YHVH has given us. Doing so
requires personal commitment and responsibility, for no
one can be healthy for us.
It is a proven fact that given the right food, the body will
heal itself. This being so, a common 'side affect' of a
predominately living foods, vegan diet (85% raw, 15%
cooked) is boundless energy. In a listless, restless world,
who couldn't use more energy?
Life, by definition, is the out-flow of positive energy that
lifts both body and spirit. If this listless, lifeless world is
getting you down, rise up, and get energy! Tap into an
endless supply today the living way!
Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper
and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.- 3 John 2
