Here is Why You Have No Energy

If you are lively and have a lot of energy, this article will reinforce what you are already undoubtedly doing.

If you are listless and lacking, you may not like it but it is most certainly for you.

Ready? Brace yourself. . . . . . . . . The reason the vast majority of those who do not have “enough” energy is that they do not do enough. Another way of saying it that the more you do, the more energy your system produces and the more energy you have.

But I am a mother of 12 and work 3 jobs. . .   Yes, there are exceptions but the odds are, you are not one of them unless of course, you are the mother of 12 working 3 jobs. 

People live from either fear or passion. Studies consistently show that most live from fear. They avoid, preferring to do what they can to deflect pain as opposed to moving to the center of passion. From a physical stand point, the 2 organs that are involved are the Kidneys and the Heart.

Let’s start with the Kidneys. The Kidneys control fear and courage. The issue with this is that both of these emotions cannot live or be experienced in the same body at the same time. One is is the alpha male or alpha female as the case may be. 

As mentioned, studies have shown that fear is the more dominant leader. I have witnesses with firsthand, having treated 1000s of patients over the decades. Fear is the dictator and not a benevolent one. When fear is the underlying driving force, the Kidneys contract, albeit it subtly. This in term, worsens the situation. In not only increases the fear, anxiety, worry etc., but also dampens the production of warmth and energy. This is why you see Mary or Jon with a sweatshirt on when it is 80 degrees outside. 

End result is a listless loop; that is, Person A lives from fear which creates more fear which weakens the Kidneys which then does not produce energy which creates fatigue which creates stagnation, leading to more fatigue. And the cycle goes on and on.

There are many, many ways to overcome this from nutrition to Tai Chi to Yoga to herb and a couple of 100 in between. They all have one factor in common – they require movement. Consistent,roll-up-your-sleeves-and-get-movingeffort, day after day after day, until it becomes a way of life. In fact, it not only becomes a way of life, the benefits become so pronounced that you cannot image life any other way!

Get moving. Sign up for a class. Run a marathon. Dust off the bike and hit the road. Do whatever you need to do to get moving. Start slowly and progress on a daily basis. Get the Bagua course on this site! It is the best way I have ever come across to move energy.

Hire a trainer and a nutritionist. Order theVirtual Visit. Do what you need to do to strengthen the Kidneys and overcome inertia. For when you do, you then flip the switch and start living from your Heart.

Your Heart is when your Spirit lives. It is the source of your passion and zest for life. It adds color and flavor. Without it, life is common, dull and bland. Activate or stimulate the Heart and the Spirit immediately responds. Answers are heard. Creativity flows and you have more energy than you know what do to with. Life becomes that which you envision or desire it to be. 

Food becomes nourishment, not an escape. Sleep becomes a passive act of rejuvenation, not a hiding ground. People of like mind seek and find you. Opportunities which you have been wanting, also find you.

Fear or Fascination. Kidney fear or Kidney courage. Activate the heart or not. The choices all rest with you and the key is as simple as can be:

1. Get moving.

2. Keep moving.

Timing is Everything, Especially with Supplements

You know the phrase, “timing is everything?” There is a lot to be said about this, particularly when it comes to supplements. Most people focus on the WHAT and of course, this is extremely important but to maximize the effectiveness of supplements, you must understand and apply the WHEN part.

Here is a detailed guideline. As a member, if you have a specific question about a supplement you are taking, email me and I will certainly address it.


  • Take vitamins and “tonics” (substances that encourage the release of energy) first thing in the morning. Taken at time, you as asking for insomnia. Examples include but not limited to Ginseng, Royal Jelly, B12 and other B vitamins, Kidney tonics such as Fo Ti.
  • Vitamin C should be taken WITH food.
  • To increase the absorption of Vitamin C, add Quercitin.
  • Zinc should be taken by itself, empty stomach, at night. Zinc interferes with the absorption of most other substances and will cause problems.
  • Vitamins (multi-vitamins) should be taken with meals; that is, during or immediately after.
  • Minerals should be taken at night, ideally on an empty stomach. Mind you, some people cannot take anything on an empty stomach. If such is the case with you, take after your last meal.
  • Same with trace minerals. Trace minerals and macro (“regular”) minerals can be taken together.
  • Magnesium and calcium help each other in terms of absorption versus taken individually.
  • Same with sodium and potassium.
  • Potassium and other electrolytes should be taken no later than 4pm. 
  • Digestive enzymes taken with food with help aid absorption of nutrition in the food. Taken on an empty stomach can help with fat loss or reduction in inflammation. For fat loss, take 1 every hour on the hour if stomach allows it.
  • Hormonal regulators should be taken in the evening, with food.
  • Amino acids should be taken either post-exercise or before bed time.
  • Taking a drop of Ren Shen (JUST ONE DROP) in a 1/4 cup of water aids in dreams/dreaming.

When in doubt, use the Organ/Timing Clock that I taught over several lessons. Pick the EXACT OPPOSITE TIME to strengthen when possible.Ex/ The time of the liver is 1-3am. 1-3pm would be when you would take a liver herb/herbal formula. Now sometime it is just not practical to wake up at 4am to take something as an example. When this is the case, use the either morning, afternoon or evening as a general guide.  Ex/ Bladder time is 3-5pm so ideally, a bladder tonic such as cranberry would be taken 3-5am. For non-Amish people, this is not practical so taking it first thing in the morning would be the next best bet.

Best Anti Inflammatory Foods and Why You Need Them

Inflammation isn’t A problem. It is typically THE problem, from premature aging to illnesses of all sorts. 

The good news is that when you clear inflammation, you improve overall health, even in areas that you may not be focused upon.

There are a number of substances that help. Here are the 3 best.

  1. Berries of any sort. They are inexpensive, tasty and incredibly healthy. They are probably the best of all known substances for clearing inflammation. For example, a study at Ohio State noted that black raspberries reduce the incidence of  cancers by half. 
  2. Fish, particularly Black cod.It has more healthy fats than even salmon. It is tasty, easy to find and is the top of the line anti-inflammatory fish. 
  3. Ginger and the “3 Christmas Herbs.” This was the featured lesson of this week in Dr. Orman’s Wellness School in which I go into great detail about ginger and the other substances. Ginger is a strong anti-inflammatory substance which is also great for digestive issues and improving the spirits.
