If you have found that your energy is down or even seemingly non-existent, you can bet that you are suffering from an “energy leak” created by some type of disease lingering inside your body.

Most compensate for this lack of energy by drinking more caffeinated beverages, which actually only exacerbates the condition long term and covers up the fact that their baseline energy is low.

See, caffeine is going to squeeze the adrenals, like a farmer milking a cow. Like the cow, there’s only so much energy you can squeeze out of your adrenals before there’s nothing left to give. When you reach this point you become dependent on coffee or risk an energy crash and headaches that often comes with a drug withdrawal.

The best way to understand where your energy levels are at is to be stimulant (caffeine) free for 30 days. Saying you have lots of energy while drinking caffeine is like saying you have a lot of muscle and have been pumping the steroids.

It’s an illusion. And it will cost you if you go on for too long.

So you don’t need to be diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) in order to recognize your energy is down or in the toilet. The question might be WHY is it down, when you have no other recognizable symptoms?

Well, the unfortunate part is we haven’t been taught to recognize symptoms very well, as they’re often being masked by day-to-day life stressors like the job, the family, the spouse, the government…

Not only that, specific symptoms can be non-existent to the untrained eye, and go undetected even if you feel you are paying attention. But if I had to make a collective assumption on why energy could be depleted, I’d boil it down to a few key areas that don’t often “cry out for help” until it’s serious.

Namely, the digestive system, liver, adrenals, and thyroid.

Most of us eat too much, and in bad food combinations, that hammer the already depleted intestinal system mainly due to glyphosate riddled food, antibiotics, metals, and stress. It takes a lot of energy to digest food when that system is faulty.

The liver is perhaps the hardest working organ, due to all the jobs it undertakes, mostly the extra burden of living in a toxic society from the womb on. A depleted liver will dramatically affect your energy levels.

The adrenals are little energy centres, but they too have been scorched due to our “keep up with the Joneses” lifestyle, unnecessary stress, and caffeinated beverages that squeeze out those precious energy stores.

By the way, coffee doesn’t CREATE more energy. It just takes from your already existing supply, which if done long enough, will leave you with very little.

The thyroid, closely in rhythm with the adrenals, also assists with a healthy metabolism, so when it goes down due to radiation (EMF and otherwise), metal fillings, poor stomach health, smoke, and lack of absorbable iodine, your energy starts to crash with it.

Of course, energy can be depleted for many reasons, some not stated, but it’s not usually from “working too hard”…that’s an easy cover up in the majority of cases in today’s modernized world. If you’re well fuelled, have no underlying health problems, and are passionate or happy about your work, CHRONIC energy lows cease to be a problem no matter how much work you put in.

But if your work sucks, your relationships suck, or the government sucks (confirmed)…then yes, that will deplete energy, but if you’re healthy, it will be less prominent. Of course, the longer that situation goes on the more consistently your energy will drain from your body.

Exercise can help give you an elevated sense of energy with movement and hormone support, but like coffee, in the end, it won’t solve a chronic energy problem. It will be transitory, at best. That’s because you can’t expend energy in a compromised body and expect it to create more to HEAL and rejuvenate the organs, glands, and tissues that are depleting it.

In the end, the best levers to pull to create more energy is to focus on a cleansing and nutrient filled diet that removes the various biological and chemical infections as well as fills in any nutrient imbalances and deficiencies. Supplementing comes AFTER you’re doing that well, and lifestyle (including therapies) should always be an underlying facet you address to make sure the other things you are doing work better, and so you can work on any emotional irregularities.

In my experience, people are average to poor in their diet (including organic eaters), supplement often, and rely on therapies too heavily at the expense of dialling in their diet.

It’s very simple in theory, but complicated in uneducated practice. I take away the latter, in the THRIVE Academy.
