How to Reverse Fatigue: Your 3-Step Plan to Feeling Awesome: Guest Post by By Yuri Elkaim

Note from Connie: Today, it’s my pleasuret to present a guest post from my colleague Yuri Elkaim, author of the new book, The All-Day Energy Diet.

Join Yuri and me tomorrow, when he joins my Gab with the Gurus Show to tell you how to get more consistent, steady energy. Remember, as with all of my shows, you can listen live or later.

If you’re tired most of the time, then it means your body is crying for help. Low energy is a warning sign that something inside your body isn’t quite right.

Considering the amount of sickness and “overweightness” that has now engulfed our world, it’s no surprise that more and more, people are feeling exhausted.

What’s important for you to know is that when you improve your energy, you improve your health.

The most common question I get asked is, “Yuri, what’s the #1 thing I can do have more energy?”

Thankfully, the answer to that question is easy to answer. And it has nothing to do with shots of espresso or sugar-filled treats.

The secret to fatigue-proofing your body (and raising your overall level of health) boils down to optimizing what’s going on inside your body.

Yuri ElkaimLet me explain…

Each of us is at war, and we don’t even know it. The private war we each wage is a daily assault on our body by acid-forming foods such as alcohol, animal products, and refined sugars, as well as by bacteria, virus, fungus, yeasts, and molds.

We have entered what might be referred to as critical mass when it comes to this onslaught being waged against us by stronger and stronger killer bugs and poorer and poorer food choices.

Our immune systems are becoming weaker and over-taxed in this war. Even the medical profession’s first line of defense, the antibiotic, is becoming less and less effective against resistant new strains being created daily as the bacteria mutate.

Since Louis Pasteur discovered the germ theory of disease stating that germs are the cause of disease, time has corrected him.  Even Dr. Pasteur himself noted in his dying words: “The germ is nothing, the environment is everything.”

The environment referred to in Dr. Pasteur’s statement is known as our biological terrain and refers to the health of our “internal” environment.

A major determinant of our internal health is the acid-alkaline balance within many of our body’s fluids, namely our blood.

Our blood is alkaline by design and acid by function – meaning that it produces acid as a function of metabolism.  Maintaining proper alkalinity is therefore essential for life, health, and vitality.

Under ideal alkaline conditions, the red blood cells (RBCs) within our blood are able to deliver energy-producing oxygen to our cells. However, an imbalance of alkalinity creates a condition whereby our RBCs begin to clump together, making it more difficult for them to reach their ultimate destination and drop off that much needed oxygen to our cells.

And if your blood is sluggish, you will be, too.

Leading biochemists and medical physiologists have recognized pH (or the acid-alkaline balance) as the most important aspect of a healthy (and energized) body. They have long known that the maintenance of an alkaline pH in the tissues and cells is critical to our health.

For instance, Dr. Linus Pauling, two-time Nobel Prize recipient, was the first to show that cancer cells cannot grow in alkaline environments.

Unfortunately, for most people, current lifestyle habits have created highly acidic bodies. The standard western diet is characterized by an overindulgence of all types of foods and drinks that disrupt our blood’s ideal pH balance.  As a result, we feel less than ideal as we go through our days.

So how can you make your body (your blood really) more alkaline to stay healthy and energetic?  Here are a few simple steps you can take immediately:

  1. Eat and drink more greens.  Green vegetables are the greatest source of alkaline minerals like calcium, magnesium, and potassium, and they deposit a large alkaline load in the body. They are pure energy, and they also give your body tremendous amounts of vital nutrients. The easiest way to benefit from their powers is to enjoy a fresh-pressed green juice or homemade smoothie at least once per day.
  2. Limit your caffeine consumption.  I know this might be tough, but caffeine is a huge contributor of acid and provides unnecessary stimulation in your body. Other than the quick “artificial jolt” that it produces, chronic reliance on this stimulant taxes your adrenal glands (which are needed to help you cope with stress) and wreaks havoc on your blood sugar levels, both of which affect how you feel throughout the day.
  3. Start your day with a glass of freshly squeezed lemon water.  Lemon, although acid in nature, is alkaline-forming inside the body. It is also highly beneficial for cleansing your liver, the organ responsible for filtering toxins  that circulate in the body. Happy liver, happy body.

Apply these simple steps and you’ll be well on your way to having more energy from the time you wake up until you call it a day.

Here’a one quick recipe to help you on your way:

Sprout Salad

Makes 2 servings

3 cups sprouts (broccoli sprouts, alfalfa, lentils, etc.) 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
Splash of lemon juice
Pinch of sea salt
Fresh ground black pepper

Combine sprouts and tomatoes in a bowl.

Whisk all other ingredients together. Combine vinaigrette with sprout mixture and serve.

The Platform Debate: Author/Speaker Michael Hyatt versus the NSA – Resolved!

Please note that since I wrote this post, the issue has been resolved. Woo Hoo!

I’m thrilled to report that the National Speakers Association has abandoned the name Platform, which leaves the wonderful Michael Hyatt able to continue his fabulous work to build their platforms. See Shep’s video annoucement.

In the wake of the National Speakers Association announcement at its annual convention a few days ago that it was renaming the organization “Platform,” some of us, who are passionate fans of Michael Hyatt — the New York Times bestselling author of Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World — have become quite vocal about this poorly researched, dubious decision.

For my part, as I shared earlier (and maybe ranted a little) on this Sugar Shock Blog, when I witnessed this brand roll-out, I became both appalled and saddened.

Michael HyattAlthough I greatly respect the National Speakers Association and its many remarkable members, I cannot fathom how a talented brand-name-search committee — which allegedly spent “two years” on this — could have been so in the dark about the amazing Michael Hyatt, who has branded “Platform” in a big way. Or, worse, if they knew about Michael and still proceeded with this move, it’s simply galling.

Not only has Michael penned his fabulous book Platform — which is, incidentally, a must read for all speakers — but he has created a wonderful Platform University and fabulous Platform Conference.

Although I had initially planned to dedicate much of this holiday weekend to making major inroads on my next book, I felt it important to take time out to stress via comments in the private National Speakers Association Facebook group and in two blogs posts here that Michael Hyatt is the undisputed brand holder of “Platform.”

Please join me to support bestselling author and speaker Michael Hyatt:

  1. Urge the National Speakers Association leadership to ditch the name change by writing to CEO Stacy Tetschner, who invites your comments about it.
  2. Recommend that the NSA apologize to Michael Hyatt.
  3. Do better Google searches and more substantive research before picking another brand name that may already be taken.
  4. And don’t stomp on the toes of someone, who is, after all, one of your own! Indeed, Michael Hyatt is not only a New York Times bestselling author with a huge platform, but he’s a sought-after, world-renowned speaker, who has done so much to help speakers, authors, bloggers, etc. get their messages out to a wider audience.

Also, please post comments on blogs by Daniel Decker, Stu McLaren, Kathleen Ann Thompson, Mike Kim, and Andy Traub, and thank them for coming to Michael’s support.

I also encourage you to read these thoughtful posts about this matter from Ryan Avery Stu McLaren, and Skip Prichard.

FYI, you can see the explanation here as to why the well-branded National Speakers Association was ditching its name and now calling itself “Platform.”

Now, let the fabulous Michael Hyatt teach you about building your own platform.

Again, please join me in urging the NSA leadership to reconsider this name change, because Michael Hyatt is already the preeminent holder of the brand, Platform. Please share your comments now.

Please see Shep Hyken’s video announcerment about the abandonment of the NSA name change.

146 Reasons Why Sugar Is Ruining Your Health: By Dr. Nancy Appleton

To buy Sweet Suicide, if you live in the U.S., go here. Canadians can get it here. And the rest of the world can purchase it here.

Let us know what you think of Nancy's book, Suicide by Sugar, and Nancy's video, Sweet Suicide.

If you're a sugar addict, I also encourage you to purchase Nancy's Body Monitor Kit. Rather than having to run to the doctor's office or a lab for a blood test, Nancy has developed a test kit based on the Sulkowitz Reagent, which reveals the calcium secreted into your urine. Includes 1 bottle, 2 test tubes (the second a spare), 1 pipe cleaner, an instruction book, an eyedropper and a roll of pH paper to test the acidity-alkalinity of both urine and saliva. It comes with two bonus audio CDs to enhance your knowledge, “Body Monitor (45 min)” and “Diet and the Immune System (78min).”  Price: $33.00 + $8.25 shipping (US price, Foreign is more.)

To order in the U.S., go here.. Canadian residents can purchase it here. And people in the rest of the world can order here.

By the way, you can join the Break Free of Your Sugar Addiction Program anytime. And when you do, the interview with Nancy is one of several exciting guest programs you'll get.
