Boost Your Energy Naturally

Boosting Your Energy Naturally

Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired? Fatigue and lack of energy are common complaints with chronic pain and autoimmune disease sufferers. When your battery is running low or you are trying to maintain a constant stream of energy to keep you going, it’s important to seek out all the possibilities that could provide you with  additional  energy support outside of food. Back in the day, food was able to provide us with more energy than it does today.  Cheap food policies have negatively impacted how we can sustain ourselves through food. Processed foods, artificial ingredients, and overuse of pesticides leave our bodies fighting daily to rid our bodies of toxins robbing us of the energy the food was to provide.

So what can you do these days to boost your energy?

Get out in the sun. Being out in the sun for 20-30 minutes a day, preferably early as the sun is rising or as it is close to setting.  This is the most natural way to get vitamin D. Vitamin D3 is made in your skin when you expose all of your body to sun. In just 15-30 minutes, depending on your body type, where you live, and the color of your skin a person can produce needed vitamin D. Check out more from the Vitamin D Council here. Get Core Complete here to get a daily dose of what your body needs!

 

Drinking water with added salts and minerals will help your body absorb and perform vital body functions more efficiently, as well as, helping you sweat for cooling and removing toxins. Read more about water here. Ionic Elements can help to provide your water with a specially formulated combination of fulvic acid and ocean trace minerals supporting a healthy body.

On a fun note…getting a salt rock and licking it throughout the day can also be a great strategy for getting needed minerals into children.

 

Breathe the right way. Utilizing a 3 part and 2 part breath technique can provide your body with increase oxygen, reduce your heart rate and assist in moving body fluids for removal from the body. Muscles have memory. When the body is placed in a sitting position all day or curled up in a ball all night, we are training or body to breath using only the upper part of our chest. This can lead to diaphragmatic dysfunction leading your body to breath pulling the chest upwards  filling only the top portion of the lungs rather than expanding downward to full all of the lungs. The Detox Yoga Program teaches you how!

 

Move your body. Being a “couch potato” or being in a compressed position such as sitting at a desk all day can limit the flow of energy and fluid throughout the body. Movement produces kinetic energy, which can be converted into power to fuels the body. Detox Yoga can help to support good spinal alignment necessary for maximizing blood, lymph, and nerve flow throughout your body supplying your body with nutrients and protecting your joints. Detox Yoga Lifestyle is about influencing wellness through supporting your lymphatic system daily.

 

The Earth is similar to a giant battery with a natural electric charge. Grounding is charging your bioelectrical body through connecting with the earth. As we become more industrial, living off the ground, covering our feet with rubber soles, and staying indoors, we lose contact with the ground leaving us disconnected and out of touch with the earth’s natural resources. We miss out on daily natural strategies that can prevent illness and improve energy supporting well-being. If you have lost your electrical roots you can easily start to ground yourself by getting outside to enjoy the warm sun and Florida’s natural resources while walking barefoot. Can’t get outside? No worries, you can bring grounding in through use of chair mats, bed pads, body bands and more! Check out a grounding study here.

Want to know more and learn how to use the natural resources our body and earth provide us to be well? Contact me today for a complimentary 30 minute consultation by phone or video conference. You will also receive my top 5 exercises that you can do in 15 minutes a day to influence better spinal alignment, cleansing your lymphatic system and breathing to influence your nervous system for calming.

Discovering Health, What’s In Your Toolbox?

Discovering Health, What’s In Your Toolbox?

By Kimberly Burns

Most everyone has a toolbox of some sort. A toolbox is generally thought of as a physical area that we keep special tools that you use around your home to maintain and repair household items. It contains different unique tools that you use alone or in conjunction with other tools. A therapist’s tool box may consist of different tests, a variety of therapeutic interventions such as different exercises, knowledge and other tools that we call modalities that we will use to help with a patient’s injury or disease. Parents with children that have special needs may have their own sensory tool box with activities to stimulate all of a child’s senses to improve the ability to develop. If you want to live in good health and fight injury and disease, being your own health advocate and gaining knowledge of what is available will assist you in developing your own wellness toolbox.

Inflammation

Inflammation

By Kimberly Burns

If you’re living with inflammation, these words have great meaning. Ancient Greeks describe it as the “internal fire”. Imagine walking over burning coals. Now imagine that feeling all over your body. According to a MedicalNewsToday.com article, “Inflammation is the body’s attempt at self-protection; the aim being to remove harmful stimuli, including damaged cells, irritants, or pathogens – and begin the healing process”

Breathe In A Healthy Lifestyle, It’s A Matter Of Technique

Breathe In A Healthy Lifestyle, It’s A Matter Of Technique

By Kimberly Burns

Many people know that breathing is important, yet are unaware of the importance of how you breathe. When you think about it, a few key words like “pursed lip breathing” or “deep breathing” may come to mind. An important muscle to breathing is the diaphragm. a body partition of muscle and connective tissue; specifically: the partition separating the chest and abdominal cavities in mammals, according to merriam-webster.com. It assists in breathing through movement. Most of us don’t really know how our breathing apparatus works or why it would be beneficial to learn more about this amazing resource we all have to boost our own health.
