- B vitamins are known to be the energy vitamins as well as other important nutrients to feed starving cells and help the body heal. We suggest a high quality whole food supplement, like VITAFORCE™ that is complete and made from whole foods. Make sure you know what you are getting from the nutritional label.
- Eat a well balanced diet of 50% or more raw foods and fresh "live" (just squeezed) juices. This will give the body highly nutritious and easily absorbable whole foods which gives much more energy and builds immunity.
- Eat foods rich in the B vitamins, particularly vitamin B1 or Thiamine; brown rice, legumes, peas, kelp, dulse, plums, spirulina, raisins, broccoli, asparagus, and most nuts. Vitamin B1 has been found to significantly decrease the number of fatigue complaints in athletes. -Metabolic Pr Brain Dis, 11(1), march 1996, p. 95-106
- Consume at least 8 glasses of distilled water throughout the day (not at meals) to help flush out toxins and reduce muscle pain.
- Natural Vitamin C– In one study, there was found to be an inverse relationship between Vitamin C and fatigue. In other words, those with the lowest intake of Vitamin C reported twice as many fatigue symptoms as those with the highest Vitamin C consumption levels. We suggest a high quality whole food supplement, like VITAFORCE™ that is complete and made from whole foods. Make sure you know what you are getting from the nutritional label.-Journal of the AmericaGeriatric Society, 24(3), 1976, p. 136-137
- Get plenty of rest and do not over-exert yourself.
- Get at least 15-30 minutes of fresh air and sunshine (if possible) a day. This will help to re-invigorate you.
Things to Avoid:
- Do not eat shellfish, fried foods, junk foods, processed foods, stimulants (coffee, soda, sugar) or white flour products.
