Sick And Tired Of Being Sick And Tired? How To Reclaim Your Energy

We have an energy crisis on our hands. I’m not talking about fossil fuels, I’m talking about a breakdown of the body’s internal energy systems that now affects even young adults in their prime. It might surprise you to learn that it’s not normal to feel tired all the time. Our on-the-go culture has made it the norm. But when we take a look at how the body’s mitochondria function (these are our tiny but powerful cellular energy factories) we see that so much of our modern lives is damaging our mitochondria and resulting in this energy deficit. I’m so excited to talk to Dr. Steven Gundry about this topic on this episode of The Doctor’s Farmacy. Dr. Gundry and I talk about the top seven energy disruptors that his new book explores. You might be surprised to hear that antibiotics are number one. We discuss how they’ve managed to infiltrate our food supply so deeply (even in organic meat) and why hurting our microbiome means hurting our mitochondria and losing precious energy production. Glyphosate, heavy metals, and medications like NSAIDs and PPIs are just a few of the other key villains we need to look at when it comes to being robbed of energy. Dr. Gundry does a great job of laying out approachable steps to rebuilding our energy production systems right away. We get into his main dietary recommendations, including the low-down on lectins, why removing gluten isn’t always enough, and why modern fruits can sabotage an otherwise healthy diet. I bet most of you can relate to feeling run-down and tired, even when you’re getting enough sleep. There are real reasons behind this lack of energy—I hope you’ll tune in to get all Dr. Gundry’s tips for feeling more vibrant so you can do the things you love.
