How to Increase your Energy

One of the most frequent questions I get, as a naturopathic doctor, is how to increase your energy and avoid feeling exhausted all of the time. Most people don’t realize that your energy levels are directly connected to how healthy you are: the healthier you are, the more energy you will have. And, of course, the opposite is true. There are some specific steps you can take to help get your energy back. As we’ve discussed throughout our talks here, we live in a pretty toxic world. Some of these toxins are in our electropolluted environments, the air and in the food we eat, others we choose, such as smoking and alcohol consumption. Either way, it’s important to detoxify our internal organs as well as our skin. You can do that through herbs, such as drinking parsley tea, or through supplementation. After dumping toxins, your energy will bounce back, toxins weigh your body down, once released, you feel lighter and more energetic. Another problem is that many adults are not getting enough sleep. In fact, a 2007 survey found that one-quarter of Canadians were sleep deprived and chronically tired. Without restful sleep, your energy is bound to be quite low. Some people have problems falling asleep, while others have issues staying asleep and wake up in the middle of the night. Some suggestions: get into a set routine, go to sleep at the same time every night and wake up at the same time every morning. That way, your body gets into a routine. Make sure you sleep in a cool, dark room; most people are surprised to know that our skin has light receptors that are quite sensitive to any light during the night. There are also fantastic herbal medicines that help with sleep, and are non-addictive and do not cause a hangover effect the next morning. Some of my favourites are passionflower, valerian, scullcap and lemon balm. Of course, a healthy diet with plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables will help you stay healthy and more energetic. Finally, getting enough exercise is important, as it helps detoxify your body (through perspiration) and regulates your hormones. Morning sunshine exposure helps to set up your entire brain and hormonal system to be able to make melatonin at night when you are sleeping. So get out each morning and watch the sunrise, it will do a world of good for your entire body, and especially your energy.
