Food for Energy: Vitamin and Mineral Supplements:
Magma Plus: Excellent article, Dr. Oz’s #1 Fat Cure, reminded me to start my day with this easy “greens” drink to lose fat and gain more energy. By easy I mean, easy. Add one heaping spoonful to a glass of water, stir and drink. When I have more time – maybe once a week – I follow Dr. Oz’s green drink smoothie recipe. (Dr. Oz’s recipe, between prep time and clean up, takes me about twenty minutes.)
Licorice Root Tea: According to Dr. Wilson, an adrenal fatigue expert, licorice is the herb best know for supporting healthy adrenal function. It is also soothes nervous stomachs, stress and helps decrease * hypoglycemia, a side affect of tired adrenals. Licorice is best taken as a tea because the candy usually contains too much sugar.
What is Hypoglycemia? Hypoglycemia is defined as an abnormally low level of sugar in the blood. Hypoglycemia symptoms include: fatigue, dizziness when standing up quickly, irrational mood swings (especially before meals), sugar cravings, headaches, depression and anxiety.

Kelp Powder: Kelp is a variety of seaweed that is known to be the best natural source of trace minerals essential for healthy adrenal gland function. Per Dr. Wilson’s suggestion I created a spice mix, 50/50 sea salt and kelp, to season everything from my morning oatmeal to my favorite roasted chicken recipe.
Food for Energy: System — NeilMed Sinus Rinse Kit
Believe it or not this was my Christmas present from my brother! I started using it once a day during the holidays and it has completely cleared out my chronic stuffy sinuses and the weekly migraine that went with them. (It has also eliminated the need for the costly migraine headache pain medication I had to take.)
Migraine headaches are a common cause of fatigue. Migraine manifests as simple aches, pain and fatigue – flu like feelings – to the “classic” debilitating headache pain. Many people are completely unaware they suffer from migraines and how exhausting this hidden fatigue condition is … I was one of them. Are you?

Adrenal Fatigue: The 21st Century Stress Syndrome by Dr. Wilson: Adrenal fatigue is, based on my own experience, the fatigue kingpin that must be rooted out first. This book is an excellent source for how to recover from adrenal fatigue.
Barefoot in Paris: Easy French Food You Can Make at Home : Nothing cheers me up and boosts my energy like delicious food … This is a treat for you, your family and friends – got for it!
Chakra Suite by Steven Halpern: I listen to this daily. First of all I blast it during my 5-minute morning meditation. That feels amazing … I often play it at bedtime to help me drift away. I definitely don’t listen to it while driving because I wouldn’t want to drift into someone else’s space!
Did you know that everything you allow to cross your lips can either give you more energy, or take it away? Are you attempting to fuel your body with energy-zapping foods such as sugar, caffeine and MSG laden spices? Simple dietary changes (like Dr. Wilson’s sea salt & kelp mix and the Blood Type Diet) can result in amazing energy gains.
