If like me you went to your doctor /GP only to be told there was nothing they could do and to tell you to get more rest. For your information if you are over weight at this moment. you will feel completely different about the foods you eat. (Not the energy levels someone should have in there early 40’s). depression. You will al so discover that the best thing taken away from you is your tiredness and excess weight. or the rest of your lifetime. 5 . family and social li fe. I did not accept this to be true and set out to find out a solution/answer . and judge for yourself tha t they produce higher levels of energy and a feeling of well-being and those pou nds dropping off if you need to lose weight. I guarantee that if you follow the program. that something can be done abou t tiredness and fatigue." This book is for those experiencing ti redness. fatigue. other than ju st dismissively saying. Many people seeme d not to know how to treat such a common complaint as being tired. but this was getting to be an uphill struggle to find the motivatio n and energy to go for a run or out on my cycle. There is only one catch – the steps of this program must be done. I want to share my discoveries and experience in this area to help other people overco me a condition that is actually quite simple to repair. I used to exercis e regularly. lethargy. However why not test the methods before you judge them? Try them for the next 30 to 90 days. I lost 2 stone in 12 weeks as a result of following the methods in this book. It not only affects your personal life but reaches into other sectors such as work. Are you serious about massively improving your energy levels? Or are yo u just curious? You need to accept you have to make some changes and give up som e things for a while that you may not want to give up.8 am and feeling like I ha d no sleep. By early eve ning often all I wanted to do was sit in a chair and watch TV. Also I am going t o tell you about some natural herbs and supplements that were the key to my succ ess. It is my sincere motivation that others will use the information in this boo k to improve their lives with some very simple steps. but you do have to do it.Introduction The motivation for this book came about from my suffering from continual tiredne ss and the research I did to find a solution. Often in the afternoons I wanted to have a doze or nap. was now just a climbing frame for my cat and somewhere to hang my clothes to dry. Increased energy can in the vast majority of cases be rapidly and easil y attained. My multi-gym I bought at great expense. because I was absolutely fed up of being tired and the effect it was having on my life. The first thing you should know is. anxiety. or stress as being caused by be ing rundown. But once you start experi encing your new energy levels you will never want to go back to your old ways ag ain. I was going to bed at 10pm waking up at 7 . What surprised me most whe n I started to research into the subject was just how little this area was being addressed by people in the medical field and nutritionalists. and the beauty is that it is simple and in expensive. "Get more sleep.

C onsider the fact that the heart and its pumping system. because muscle cells make lots of energy. or A-coA for short. That’s why you get hot when e xercising. liver. 6 . The human heart beats about 100. processed. which is very low in nutrition. The waste products are carbon dioxide. and heat. so you can appreciate why the changes will work. However it’s rather inefficient so the body pr efers to use carbs for fuel. which then m eet oxygen and step by step energy is released. capacity. is th e first step in making energy. muscles. a nd consume far too much junk. skin. The body is like an engine and like any m achine if it is not given the tools and equipment it needs. immune. The Quality of Your Life is the Quality of Your C ells Within each of the thirty trillion or so cells in your body exist tiny energy fa ctories called mitochondria. The brain. The mitochondria turns glucose into another chemica l. This substance is perhaps the most vital. whether it’s digesting thinking or moving. which separates off hydrogen molecules. The hum an body has to be nature’s finest creation. In fact over 90% of all our ener gy is derived in this final stage. oxygen is needed every step of the way.000 times every 24 hours. it will break down a nd not work as efficiently as it should do. an d adaptability. which scientists have at tempted to duplicate without success. you can break down fat or protein to A-coA.0 00 miles of blood vessels. so heat is created. which is the fuel reserve for cells. So keeping an even blood sugar level. w hich can be used by the cell to carry out its work. The fuel for all cells is glucose derived from carb foods. The intelligence inherent in our bodies is so vast that it is po sitively staggering. and use this for energy. ACOA enters a series of chemical reactions known as the Krebs cycle aft er it’s discover Ernst Krebs. It is unmatched in power. But most don’t. These cells do the work for the body. and packaged food. which we exhale. Yet. HOW YOUR BODY MAKES ENERGY The human body is made out of cells. From this point on. because if you are starved of glucose. Pyruvic acid then gets turne d into acetyl-coenzyme A. A body given poor nutrition and care will get rundown. in the process of which a small amount of energy is released. pyruvic acid. heart and arteries are all simply a collection of cells. pump six quarts of blood through over 96. system. but you need to how your body works.

Fruits. they have no need of your bod y’s enzymes. carbs and fats reach the next stop. protein s have been broken down to amino acids. So fruit gives you energy without using much energy. Once they have acted. Digestion occurs by the chemical action of enzymes initiating a reaction that breaks the food down into simpler form. the first protein digestion enzyme. the pepsin softens and begins to break down the protein into amino acids. fruits move quickly through your system. a proteinase. Through the bloodstream they are distributed throughout your b ody to nourish your cells. is released. fats and fruits a special category of carbs. If a carb has been properly digested by pty alin. By the time proteins. Initia ted by chewing. where the first carb digest ion enzyme. Six quarts of blood are made up of over 24 trillion cells that make 3 to 5 thousand trips thro ugh the body every day. As the hydrochloric acid and other substances convert the fat to lipi ds. carbs are now simple sugars. an e nzyme called ptyalin starts the breakdown of carbs. Before you b arley finished your last bite of the fruit. fruits already contain all of the enzymes necessary to reduce them to nutrients. your s mall intestine. Ptyalin does not act on prot eins. Protein digestion starts in the stomach. This enzyme onl y works in the high acid medium of the juices released from the gall bladder. they have already been turned into nutrients. The purpose of the digestive system is to break down complicat ed food molecules into simple units that can be absorbed and utilized by the bod y via the cells. your stomach. Enzymes are sensitive to the acid level in the digestive tract. It is at this stage that food’s nutrients. which can start and stop their release. the first nutrients are entering you r bloodstream. maltose is further broken down before it moves on to the next stage. the jejunum. 7 million new blood cells are produced every second! Thi s pumping system has the capability of working non-stop for decades without skip ping a beat. DIGESTION AND ABSORPTION It is very important for you to unders tand how the body digests food so you fully appreciate the benefits of the progr ams in this book. Absorption then begins. And this is only the circulatory system! The body needs the right n utrition in the right environment. They pass unscathed through your mouth and stomach until. The pancreas also releases protease and amyla ses. a re a carb in a class of their own. Carbs digestion starts in the mouth. including water-soluble vitamins and minerals. found in the alkaline juices of saliva. Because of th eir ease of digestibility.This is an equivalent of 63 hundred gallons being pumped per day. Ne xt the hydrochloric acid and pepsin work to complete the reduction of protein in to amino acids. are released from the pancreas. ca lled bile. enter the bloodstream. To be digested. the pro cess begins as hydrochloric acid attacks the fat and activates the enzyme pepsin . And to work at its best it needs to kept clea n on the inside. called an amylase acts. all of which continue unaffec ted to the next stage. and fats ar e broken down to glycerol and fatty acids. where the fat digesting enzymes called lipase s. 7 . it is already in the form of a crystalline sugar called maltose by the tim e it reaches your stomach. Further enzymes are released from the next section of the digestive tract. however. making it the key organ of digestion. Fat digestio n actually starts in the duodenum. F ood’s first stop in the body is your mouth and that’s where digestion begins. in the sma ll intestine. the fruits enzymes act to convert them to nutrients. In the stomach.

Bacteria also flourish in the large in testine. and anabolism. not carbohydrate or fat. but is further concentrated in the gall bladder. 2. which i s the building up of components into body tissues for growth or repair. THE LIVER AND GALL BLAD DER To get round this problem the gall bladder releases bile into the duodenum i n order to emulsify the fat. Although it does produce a fat splitting enzyme. Simple sugars are the most important source of energy. Following absorption. The parietal cells and the chief cells. THE PANCREAS Before the pancreas enzymes. and then activates pepsinogen. which travel along the pancreatic duct. amino ac ids are the most important building blocks for this process. The pancreas releases. protease’s. amino acids. but also for brain activity. This is done by the release o f alkaline salts both from the pancreas and the gall bladder. since these enzymes are all water bas ed the lipase cannot work well on large globules of fat.Sugars. This in turn switc hes off the pepsin and turns on the pancreatic enzymes. 1 . this has negligible effect. These substan ces in combination not only allow the fat to become emulsified but have a specia l way of keeping tiny fat particles separate until absorption 8 . a process that involv es the zinc dependent enzyme carbonic anhydrase. Anabolism and catabolism are collectively known as metabolism. However. Emulsification involves turning the large fat molec ules into tiny particles with much more surface area of exposed fat for the lipa se to work on. Pepsin then breaks down protein into sma ller chunks called peptides. Hydrochloric acid has the effect of straightening out the curly prote in molecules in our food. the Duodenum. which then becomes peps in. trypsin. THE STOMACH The stomach is prim arily concerned with the digestion of protein. Once the food leaves the stomach via the pyloric sp hincter it is chyme and has a creamy consistency. completing the final stages of food digestion. glycerol and most vitamins and minerals are ab sorbed in the small intestines.cholesterol. T wo kinds of cells line the stomach wall. called f ibre helps to accelerate the passage of digested material through the large inte stine to the rectum. chymot rypsin and carboxpeptidase to break down polypeptides and proteins into di-pepti des. anabolism. and catabolism. the first protein digestion enzyme. Bile leaving the liver is largely water. It then enters the first and m ost important part of the small intestine. while the chief cells secrete p epsinogen. althoug h fats and indeed amino acids can also be utilized when required. mainly in the ileum. 3. lipase to break down fat. can work th e environment in the duodenum must be less acidic. Bile is actually produced in the liver and consists of three main ingredients. fatty acids. digestion and absorptio n. th e components of digestion are now ready for one of two fates. whi ch is the breaking down or components to produce energy. a lipase. Water and much of sodium an d potassium are absorbed in the large intestine. Energy is required not only for muscular activity. It is here that digesti ve juices secreted from the pancreas and gall bladder act on food. amylases to break down carbs into di-saccharides. Indigestible material. ready for excretion. The parietal cells produce and secrete hydrochloric acid. lecithin and inorganic salts.

triglycerols can’t be absorbed. THE SMALL INTESTINES Once the contents of the duodenum enter the next part of th e small intestine. the jejunum. It is di gested by an enzyme called sucrose. so the different lipases knock off each fatty acids until only free fa tty acids. Each unit of digested fat is incorpor ated into a structure called a micelle. shaped much like the letter E. most protein is in the form of di-peptides most carbs are now di-saccharides. Rather than being smooth it consists of millions of tiny folds or protrusions called villi. These either simply diffuse across the intestinal wall or are actively transported across by a variety of m echanisms. Th is means there are three fatty acids on a backbone of glycerol. ABSORPTION Most absorption takes place in the jejunum and ileum. The most important sugars.takes place. and fats are micellized. This process is aided by the design of the intestinal wall . The intestinal wall conti nues to secrete digestive enzymes. with each prong being a fatty acid. Sucrose is sugar as we kno w it and consists of a glucose and a fructose. It consists of two glucose molecules and is digested by maltase. called intrinsic factor. Fats are eaten in the form of triglycerols. Vitamins do not need to be digested but they do need to be liberated from food in order to be absorbed. or milk sugar. Within each villus are capillaries tiny blood vessels and lymphati c vessels ready to carry out the digested nutrients. is broken down g alactose and glucose by the enzyme lactase. Absorpt ion involves the transport of fats. Minerals are absorbed both in the small and large intestine. Dipeptidases are released to break down di-ep etides into amino acids and various amylases are released to break down di-sacca rides into mono-saccharides. are fructose and glucose. Maltose is the major sugar present in grains. altho ugh absorption of some minerals and water occurs in the large intestine. This is called micellization. However. glycerol or monoglycerols are left. which repels other micelles thus keeping the fats in solution. B12 must first combine wit h a protein. which is the final part of the small intestine. And lactose. These can then be absorbed. But o nce fat is in the intestinal wall it is then reconstituted into a similar config uration known as a triglyceride and then released into the blood stream via the lymphatic systems. The absorption of vitamin B12 is slightly different. which are then absorbed. For example most of the absorption of amino acid s involves carrier molecules dependent on vitamin B6. which is released in the stomach. or t ransport via carrier molecules. 9 . or fruit sugar molecule. sucrose and lactose. These either involve a pumping mechanism called the sodium pump. amino acids and some peptides and simple sug ars out of the digestive tract into the blood or lymphatic tract into the blood or lymphatic vessels. The predominant types of di-saccharides are maltose . Fa t-soluble vitamins need to be attached to fat molecules for absorption to occur. Only the n can it be absorbed at specific sites in the ileum.

This step involves thiamine. And it is here that we begin to feel for good. which are then incorporated into cells. the citric acid (or Krebs cycle) and the electron transfer pathway. The production of this key metabolite depends upon vitamin B5 pant othenic acid. the demand on your muscles to produce energy without having an adequate supply of oxygen would have meant the processing of glucose to pyruvic acid anaerobically. The series of chemical reactions can be seen i n three distinct sections. Fats are either used for energy. which we know of as life. Whether they end up in the liver or are supplied directl y to muscle cells their fate is basically the same. Contrary to what you may think. For example. The utilization of these nutrients is called metabolism and takes place within every cell. 10 . or the ill effects of what we eat. supplied by breathing and then transported in the form of hemoglobin in the blood. cell walls contain fat. It also is not dependent on the presence of oxygen. glycolysis. W hen there are insufficient supplies of glucose or glucogen. for example during a fast or after twenty miles of a marathon. there i s no such thing as a slow metabolism. It is here that we fuel up with the energy carbs provide. hydrogen and oxygen. which can build up in the muscl es with anaerobic exercise and makes them feel stiff. The first part of the process. Most of the amino acids. It is as the energy in carbs is in one currency and the kind of energy we need to power cells is in another. Metab olism itself depends upon nutrients.METABOLISM Metabolism is the engine that powers and maintains our bodies. This releases a small amount of energy for work by the body. The g radual release of energy in a form that the body can use happens through a serie s of chemical reactions that have taken half a century to unravel and about whic h there are still many mysteries. These are converted into coenzyme A. Much in the same way that we burn logs to re lease the stored energy as heat. In fact. The presence of sufficient oxygen. and to provide heat. which then shares the same metabolic pathway as carbs. into pyruvic acid. we can use fatty acids or amino acids as fuel. fats and simple su gars in the bloodstream are then transported to the liver from which some go dir ectly into circulation. vitamin B1. Plants produce carbs by using the suns energy to c ombine carbon. But if we were to burn carbs the result would be a su dden release of heat and no energy processes. prefer fatty acids to glucose as fuel. Amino acids are reconstitute d to make proteins. i f you were to do a short sprint and ended up panting. the proteins are transformed into the building m aterials that create and replenish our flesh bone and blood. This i s the stage at which nutrients. some muscles. Carbs are predominantly used to make energy. For example. our cells oxidize carbs to release the stored e nergy. Under these circumstanc es pyruvic acid is then converted to latic acid. eg the heart. You control your own metabolism and metabo lic rate through your eating habits. This energy is used to power the chemical processes. allows more energy to be generated during glcolysis and pyruvic acid is converted into acetyl coenzyme A. glycolysis involves th e processing of glucose from diet or glycogen the form in which glucose is store d in muscles. put into storage or are incorporated into cells. CATABOLISM The process of turning food into energy is called catabolism.

is to pass hydrogen atoms into a nother pathway. When a cell needs to be built or repl aced for example when exercising new muscle cells are being built up to develop stronger muscles to cope with the exercise. adenosine triphosphate ATP. For the muscl es to react calcium and magnesium must be present in and around muscle cells for the transport of oxygen we need iron. Th e end product of the electron transfer pathway is water. Ce lls are predominantly made out of protein. ANABOLISM Some of the energy released from catabolism is used to help build new cells. ATP is the form o f energy used to power muscles and other body processes by converting ATP into a denosine diphosphate ADP and a phosphate molecule. sometimes called the citric acid cycle. Throughout these processes he at is also lost. It needs essential nutrients that you ca n not get from an average diet alone. As you have now read an abridged version of how the body works . Plus you also need to keep your internal sy stem in top condition to enable the body to perform as it should. The purpose of the Krebs cycle. This is why we get hot when using lots of energy as in exercise. Modern day intensive farming and processing metho ds have taken out most of the goodness before you get it. The by-product of the Kreb s cycle is carbon dioxide. the body must select the appropriate ingredients from neighboring tissues. This process is called anabolism. break down products of old cells or from the bloodstream. which then heats the body. 38% is lo st as heat. after Hans Krebs. Then you usually cook more of the nutrients from the food. 11 . The electron transfer pathway depends upon vitamins B 2. who discovered it in the 1950s. so that for each unit of energy derived from glucose. The liver not only releases individual amino acids into circula tion but also reconstitutes and releases proteins for the use as building materi al for new cells. The elec tron transfer pathway gives rise to a further 34 units of ATP. you can appreciate how complex it is. you will need to take supplements to ensur e you get everything you need. and 42% is released as ATP to power cells . But what is the energy that is released? The process of glycolysis in the presence of oxygen gives rise to 4 units of a highly reactive substance. called the electron transfer pathway. B3 and C and it is along this pathway that most of our energy is produced. And for the transport of glucose from the blood to the cell we need chromium.Acetyl coenzyme A then enters a cycle of chemical reactions known as the Krebs c ycle.

If your body has lowered nerve energy. It may be hard to make the changes at first. One reason you wake up tired in the morning after many hours sleep. But you are not tied in the true old fashioned meaning of the w ord. The major cause of this. “NOTHING TASTES AS GOOD” .“AS GOOD HEALTH FEELS” The vast majori ty of people feel they are operating at 50-60% of their true potential energy le vels. In most cases your tiredness will be overcome by cleaning up your internal problems and restoring correct body chemistry so your body can pe rform naturally. then the toxins accumulate in the body. ove rweight and potential life threatening disease. is tha t people are rundown and are not getting the “nutritional tools” from their diets. then it no longer funct ions at its 12 . The body b ecomes enervated.PART 2 What could be the Cause of your Tiredness The first thing to establish is. You have to repair and clean you r internal system by using the methods in this book. but once you start to feel the benefits you will be motivated to do more and more. Our modern lifestyles put a tremendous toxic strain on vital or gans and glands.. Is th at while you are sleeping. or just generally feel run down and lethargic –the n you are tired. The stomach is perpetually stuffed with de-natured foods consum ed in incompatible combinations while the liver is swollen and strained with the effort of breaking down massive intakes of animal protein and fat as well as dr ugs and toxins. Quite often people do no t even realize what is happening to them as it is such a slow gradual process. badly combined food s can take up to ten times as long to digest as would good quality properly comb ined foods. Th e way you have been living and eating means your body can not perform in the way it needs. The rather shocking side of this is that it’s getting worse. I t is a condition that can take some time to develop – even decades. A ll they know is that they are tired and that they do not feel as good as they us ed to. Your human body was developed by nature to work in a certain way needing essential ingredients to produce a chemical combination in exactly the right formula to work effectively without causing any damage or side effects. You are tired in false way due to internal problems leading to changes in y our body chemistry. or you g et home from work and are too tired to do anything else other than sit down in f ront of the TV and fall asleep. year after year. That crap you eat will take eight to twenty hours to be digested. An d even then some of it doesn’t digest at all and remains in your system often for years. If someone puts more waste o r toxins than can be handled. So the number one energy drain is digestion. Poor quality. your body is working overtime to digest the incompati ble combinations of poor quality food you have put in your stomach that day plus all the toxins. fatigue. While you are asleep huge amounts of nerve energy is also being used to cope with the digestion process. hence the side effects you are experiencing now – illness. This is a common theme with people from all parts of the world. The condition gradually worsening month after month. are you tired? Well if you find yourself not ha ving sufficient energy to either get up in the morning and get started. It takes more energy to digest your food than anything else you do on a daily basis.

When you take in excess fat. (but at t he same hardly ever diagnosed by doctors). which means you accumu late more poison. 13 . (This is a cycle you n eed to break. starting with the most widespread and common. some people on this diet get to much fat t hrough eating to much fatty foods like meat and cheese). Find out why your tiredness problem exists. (This is a common symptom of people using the Atkins type diet. In the following section of this book I am going cover why you may have a fatigu e and tiredness problem. the organs that are supposed to be elimi nating the toxins that are already building up work less. The process of elimination and detoxification is sl owed so the internal toxins and metabolic waste start to build up. With less energy. you have a toxic overload. As you get less oxygen you have less energy. It can build up to a point where the body basically starts to shut down and calls in blood an d energy to problem areas robbing you of the energy you need to function on a da ily basis. toxins filter out into the bloods tream and cause your body to maintain excess fluids (ladies if you have a cellul ite problem. If your system is full of toxicity.highest level of efficiency. Cellulite is basically excess fluid arou nd fat cells caused by toxic build up). the blood t hickens and moves more slowly so you get less oxygen. As a result you get even more toxicity.

The client stretches one arm straight out in front of her. It is not a q uack miracle cure. It took me over two years of continuous study and research to get to t he bottom of my problem and find the solution. then I will t ell you about the two main problems I found I had and what caused them and what you can do about them. chemicals or a ny other product that may have an effect on the human body. I spent lots of money and time tr ying many different methods and products before I found what the real answer was to my problem. When each of these t ubes are placed in turn on different parts of the body. if they have an allergy. I knew I wanted to take my finding to a wider audience – that is why you are now reading this book. the body will react to i f it has a reaction either positive or negative to that item. what organs are not functioning correctly. For processing purposes there are various ways of util izing the body of the client to provide feedback on how we are doing.In the past have you ever had reoccurring illness like colds – flu . You are now going to read how I found wha t my problem was. Many different muscles could be used for the test. or straigh t out to the side. But it is 100% ac curate. what foods don’t suit that person. vitamins. Then what I did about it and what I had to change and what sup plements helped me and will help you. You can find exactly wha t is going in your body and what you need to correct the problems. The facilitator instructs her to resist and then presses down on the arm. And she notices if the arm holds up to being pressed down or if it gives in and becomes weak. After finding that other people were getting the same benefits and getting over their fatigue. W hat they are lacking in nutrients. So how did I eventually find out what the problem was? Muscle testing!!! Muscle Testing I am now going to give you an over view of what muscle testing is. because the body is telling you what is wrong. starting with my immediate family finding a cousin with the same pro blem. you are not going to get better over night. The facilitator th en can get feed back and build up a picture to what is wrong with that person. The easiest is usually to use the arms. Once I had experienced the improvements myself I set about findi ng other people with the same conditions and problems and recommending my findin gs to them. The facilitator doing the testing will have small tes t tubes containing samples of most know foods minerals.viruses? Have you ever taken a course of antibiotics? Then it is also 99% a possibility that you have one or both of two main conditions that are creating your fatigue and t iredness. One easy a nd effective way of getting feedback is through a method called Muscle Testing. The human body is a very useful instrument that provides all kinds of information. 14 .

the practitioner will usually also combine muscle testing with a thorough history. Instead. 15     . the flow of qi can become disrupted. muscle weakness (or its opposite. I can not begin to tell you have good that fel t. homeopathy.When I discovered finally what was my problem. Now I knew what had to be done. How Does It Work? Applied kinesiology does not offer an overt "cure" to illness. then acupuncture. physical examination. It is based on the concept th at adverse changes in muscle function can occur as a consequence of a variety of internal triggers. and chiropractic. P ractitioners of AK believe that the diagnostic technique of manual muscle testin g reveals sources of chronic symptoms that may have been overlooked during a mor e conventional medical evaluation. According to AK theory. Important to an understanding of applied kine siology is the concept of "energy medicine" understood in traditional Chinese me dicine. the AK practitioner can d etermine the internal source of muscle weakness and then plan a program designed to ultimately restore health. Because manual muscle testing is basically a diag nostic technique. food sensitivities. Using an extens ive diagnostic procedure called manual muscle testing. and appropriate laboratory testing. excessive muscle spasm) can also be cause d by diseased or dysfunctional internal organs. nerve entrapm ent. I could have cried with relief be cause I was past the point of being totally pissed off and sick of feeling tired . These may include such obvious ones as injury. If the body s energy channel s (or meridians) are blocked. organs or lack ing in certain nutrients or allergies. by sugge sting a number of complementary therapies and disciplines. exposure to toxic substances. Applied kinesiology was developed in the 1960s by George Goodheart. howe ver. a Detroit chiropractor. or emotional issues. or chiropractic may be used to facilitate the healing process. or brain damage. misalignment of the skeleton. homeopathy. Once a practitioner has used applied kinesiology to determine the source of a n energy imbalance. All of these systems believe that imbalanc es in the body s vital energy (or qi) are ultimately responsible for the develop ment of symptoms and potentially of disease itself. Muscle testing is also known as Applied kinesiology is a technique used to di agnose and treat health problems by identifying weakened muscles. AK can help the patie nt to correct small health problems that might eventually lead to larger ones. nu tritional deficiencies. creating a di sharmony that may show up in a muscle that is located along a particular meridia n.

The goal of applied kinesiology treatment is to intervene early enough to preven t or delay illness. How To Choose a Practitioner There is no regulated licensing for applied kinesiology. Basic applied kinesiolo gy training for licensed health-care professionals consists of roughly 100 hours of classroom course work, plus study and practice at home. Certification requir es an additional 100 hours of classroom study, plus passing a proficiency exam o r test of clinical competence.. The two main problems that I had were Candida and PVFS. These were both causes I have now learnt by me being given anti-biotic treatments when I was younger bec ause I used to get sore throats and colds. Anti- biotic treatments when given to combat a virus actually stop that virus leaving the body which then later in li fe causes the onset of PVFS. These products also cause damage to the stomach lin ing which leads to a growth of candida. Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome (PVFS) BACKGROUND PVFS commonly follows an attack of flu, severe cold or other viral infection. It can last for a few days, weeks or months. Symptoms may include headaches, gener al muscle pain, feeling faint, lack of concentration etc. It is important to tak e adequate rest in the early stages as this helps the body to overcome the infec tion. If such symptoms last beyond six months it is possible that the condition has developed into ME (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis), or what some doctors now call Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). It is believed that the viruses, which initiate the problem, persist in the brain cells, and in muscle cells in 70% of cases. T here they become modified so as not to unduly disturb the body s immune system . During periods of remission the viruses lie quiet and don t cause symptoms. Bu t stress, trauma, accident, over-exertion, immunisation or another infection can upset this balance and the virus and immune system become re-activated, causing a relapse and return of ME/CFS symptoms. ME is an illness characterised by a nu mber of symptoms rather like a severe flu. It affects the body and the mind. It has probably been in existence for many years, but it is poorly understood and h as been called by different names at different times. The characteristic feature s are fatigue which goes on for more than 6 months and for which no other cause can be found. The fatigue affects both mental and physical activity and is not r elieved by rest. Other symptoms may include sweating, shivering, feeling cold, 17





headaches and nausea. Bowel problems such as diarrhoea or constipation can occur . Visual problems and generalised aches and pains especially in muscles or joint s may occur. Patients complain of poor memory and difficulty in concentrating. A ll these symptoms may vary from day to day and are often made worse by minimal p hysical or mental effort. Mood swings may occur and people may feel tearful and depressed. Patients become particularly frustrated that no clear explanation for their illness can be found. They are also somewhat characteristically "high ach ievers" who were more energetic than average prior to becoming ill. The virus co ncerned does not generally cause tissue damage, so none is detected by normal la boratory tests. This is the cause of the frustrating lack of proof that we are p hysically ill and why so many doctors have been sceptical about the illness. How ever special research techniques have shown that viral material is present withi n tissues and SPECT scans have demonstrated restricted blood flow to the brain a nd damage lesions in certain vital brain areas. Even if they were generally avai lable these tests could only support a diagnosis based on clinical symptoms and case history; they cannot be used on their own to diagnose the illness. How does Post Viral Fatigue occur ? The cause of ME is not known. It is not even clear how fatigue itself is caused. It is thought that it may be triggered by a common virus infection based on the knowledge that people can get similar symptoms when they have a viral illness. Because fatigue is also a feature of some disorders of the body’s defence or immun e systems, it has been suggested that ME is a disorder of the immune system. Why does Post Viral Fatigue occur ? There is no test to diagnose ME. It occurs more commonly between the ages of 20 to 40 but can affect children. There may be a familial component. It is thought that there are at least 150 000 sufferers in the U.K. Why ME is triggered in som e people and not others is unknown. It may be that some are more vulnerable thro ugh physical or mental stress at the time that a viral infection strikes. There is an association with depression but it is not clear whether one disorder cause s the other. KNOWING I HE ENEMY The best way to cope with ME is to UNDERSTAND what is happening to your body and realise that you are NOT GOING MAD. It is NOT a fatal illness and, given time, you stand a good chance of making a considerable recovery. TREATMENT There is no known magic cure for ME, so it may not be helpful to spend a fortune chasing private treatments. However some self-help and changes in lifestyle can relieve symptoms and eventually help the body come to terms with the virus. As with chicken pox, measles etc. the ME/CFS viruses will remain in the body life-l ong. 18


REST AND AVOIDANCE OF STRESS is important, especially in the early stages. Tapes or courses on relaxation benefit many sufferers. (Stress can be mental or physical, even including climatic changes). On your better days you may be able to manage more physical and mental activity, BUT ME sufferers are usually operat ing very close to their energy limit and this must not be exceeded or RELAPSE wi ll occur. CHANGE of DIET may help. You may find certain foods worsen your symptoms. All stimulants should be avoide d including ALCOHOL and CAFFEINE. Drink plenty of fluids, e.g. water, fruit juic es, herbal teas, 1 Caro", 11Barleycup". Try to eat fresh foods without artificia l additives, colouring and sweeteners. Animal fats tend to encourage viral growt h which destroys Essential Fatty Acids, whereas unsaturated plant and fish oils replace EFAs and help the immune system. [Evening Primrose and cod-liver oils ta ken together daily help restore the correct balance of EFAs. In one scientifical ly controlled trial, financed by the Efamol company, they were found to improv e symptoms in over 80% of ME sufferers]. Some ME sufferers have considerable 1i rritable bowel" symptoms, due to disturbance in the autonomic nervous system. Re ducing animal fats and refined sugars and increasing starch and fibre in the die t often helps. Some ME sufferers are unable to take foods containing wheat; in o thers, dairy products must be avoided. Such sensitivities and/or allergies can o nly be determined by trial and error. Your GP may be able to help or refer you t o a dietitian. Due to viral damage to the hypothalamus (a vital part of the brai n which controls hormone output), production of certain growth hormones are redu ced, rendering ME patients resistant to insulin. This can cause sudden drops in blood sugar levels and feeling wobbly and strange if you miss a meal, or followi ng a sudden burst of activity. A sweet snack or drink will quickly restore blood sugar levels, but a slice of toast or digestive biscuit is advisable to stop th e sugar level crashing again. Eating a good diabetic diet, i.e. regular meals co ntaining plenty of starch and slowrelease natural sugars, found in fresh fruit a nd vegetable, will help reduce episodes of low blood sugar. Refined sugars can l ead to rapid fluctuations in blood-sugar levels and symptoms of hypoglycaemia. T hey may also increase susceptibility to Candida (a fungal growth in the gut) whi ch can cause thrush. Unsweetened, LIVE Yoghurt, eaten daily may help restore gut flora, especially after antibiotic treatment. [+ NB. Some private dietary pract itioners can be very expensive. Some also seem to have a tendency to diagnose mu ltiple allergies in most patients and prescribe very restricted diets which can be difficult to cope with and may even be dangerous to ME sufferers.) You may be very sensitive to strong-smelling chemicals like perfumes, paint, petrol and TO BACCO SMOKE. Pesticides may also cause problems. Your hearing may fluctuate betw een intolerance of noise and near deafness. Tinnitis is sometimes experienced. 19





Always explain to your anaesthetist that you have ME should a gener al anaesthetic be required for an operation. etc. Treatment Involved for Post Viral Fatigue It is very important that the diagnosis is only made on good clinical evidence a fter other illnesses have been excluded. YOUR GENERAL PRACTITIONER They have no simple diagnostic tests to confirm ME but can only make a diagnosis based on a full case history and the pattern of symptoms. "COMPLEMENTARY" TREATMENTS Some ME sufferers find acupuncture. Depression commonly acc ompanies the condition and a trial of antidepressants is often worthwhile. Diet can be important. 20       . ANTI-DEPRESSANTS These can be essential to treat true depression. such as prothiaden and amitriptyline are often the most beneficial. you may then d escribe only the one or two problems that are prominent at the time. since people with ME can react badly t o their use. But their main benefit is to help you get a good night s sleep. ANAESTHETICS These are best avoided whenever possible. Without any exercise. family. it is better to stop doing unnecessar y tests or seeing different doctors and to try to accept and understand the cond ition as it affects the individual and the family. Support and understanding fro m doctors. Rest is important. but it is important to try to mai ntain interests and activities so that the condition does not overwhelm the pati ent. homoeopathy. Once this stage is past. It is believed that the benefit of these drugs to ME s ufferers is their antihistamine effect. A well balanced d iet high in fibre and protein and low in fat is healthy. If local anaesthetic is required fo r dental treatment ask for ADRENALIN-free ~ CITANEST to be used.Fluctuating vision problems are common and are probably due to fatigue in the op tic muscles. An eye test may be advisable to eliminate other causes of severe pr oblems. It will help if you w rite down ALL your symptoms and keep a diary of how you feel from day to day. Patie nts find this difficult to accept as they may suspect that the doctor feels thei r symptoms are not genuine. It is so easy to forget important facts when you go to the surgery. ME su fferers can usually only take these in low doses (not the levels appropriate for people with depression). herbal remedies. friends and employer will be helpful. which affects some ME sufferers . to be ver y helpful. There is no test for ME but most people will have had a lot of blood tests and X-rays to look for unusual infections an d other diseases. The tricyclic group. people do become unfit and pain and stiffness are to be expected when exertion is attempted.

During Treatment for Post Viral Fatigue ME is an illness where the symptoms may change from day to day. Early diagnosis and appropriat e help is important. Rhodiola this is natural herbal product that is oft en used by athletes to shorten recovery times. Increase your quality of sleep. For example. About one third will make a slow but steady recovery. The development of physical signs or symptoms i ndicating another condition should prompt a reconsideration of the diagnosis. It is important to take advantage of periods of improvement so that activities are maintained. as well as improves concentration. Within a few days of taking them I could notice the differenc e. Through muscle testing I found two products that are great in helping the body o vercome the effects of PVFS and build up internal organs back to their normal op erating levels. liver and spleen recover. especially in the early days. AD206 this is a enzyme a ctivated vitamin and mineral complex with added herbal ingredients. I can not begin to tell you how much difference these two products made to me and my life. memory and att ention. too much physical or mental effort can m ake things worse. Certain factors can aggravate the illness. Muscle testing shows that these organs are very low in functioning when the per son has PVFS. I highly recommend that you try them. only do moderate exercise like walking u ntil you feel that you are over this. You must stop any strenuous exercise. Most follow a pattern of relapses and improvements that can go on for a fe w years. 21 . Reduce you r stress levels. but t he future course of the disease is impossible to predict and the illness can rel apse. But it is important that you also understand you can not just take these product s with out making some other changes to your life style. It also helps strengthen the immu ne and cardiovascular systems. The first is. After Treatment for Post Viral Fatigue It is difficult to predict how long ME will last. This product s is especially good at combating the effects of PVFS and helps build up body’s su pport systems and especially helps the adrenal glands. They are not available in health foods shop and are only availab le from specialist nutritional suppliers. The second is. All stimulants should be avoided as I just told you about a few pages ago .

Candida is a yeast that lives normally in the digestive system of the body but can easily over grow and cause a conditi on known simply as Candida or Thrush. Candida over growth is triggered by excess ive yeast diets and the taking of many drugs. An overgrowth in the colon can also inhibit the absorption of essential nutrients. An overgrowth of Candida can produce conditions that range from minor irritations to severe debilitating physical and psychological illness the most common being tiredness and fatigue.

Kill the fungus . There is also a need to provide help to the repair and support systems of the body to allow them to more efficiently handle the load they are coping with. an explosion of Candida activity can occu r. at the same time. What’s the solution? Two main things need to be done. Boost the immune system. Diet as a medicine. not a punishment! If you are committed to make the necessary changes to get rid of your tiredness and fatigue you must accept that you have to change your diet. the foods that the yeast thrives on such as s ugar happen to be in plentiful supply. 2. 1.But when. Stop feeding the fungus – diet. with non-drug antifungal agents. the contracept ive pill and the widespread use of steroid medication (such as cortisone) have a ll played their part in Candida’s spread. (See end this section) Replace the good bacte ria in the gut – probiotics. the increased use of sugar and sugar-rich foods has provided the yeast with just the sustenance it loves. the yeast has a chance to spread to areas normally ou t of bounds. In addition. The good news is. The introduction of broad-spectrum antibiotics. You must understand that your Candida problem will not go away on it’s own! Remedies What can I do to cope with fungal infection? Clean the colon and remove toxins. due to any of a number of possible causes our defences against Candida is deficient or weakened.

your body capabilities are reduced by a lot higher percentag e. If the y did prescribe you anything. it is available at all supermarkets. including sugar cravings for the first few days. I don’t like taking prescription drugs that you get from your GP. Did you know that ei ghty percent of your body is made up of water? If your hydration levels drop by a small percentage. You may experience withdrawal s ymptoms. While doing my research into Candida I wanted to find a product to take to treat the problem. If you have been a serious black tea and or a coff ee drinker and give up them you may get what is known as a ‘Caffeine Storm’. that the goal of changing your diet! Particularly if you have been accustomed to a high refined carbohydrate menu. If you went to see your doctor it i s highly unlikely that they would you prescribe you anything except rest. Artificial sweeteners ar e banned because some nutritionists believe that their inclusion in the diet per petuates a craving for sugar. It also plays havoc with your blood sugar levels and dis rupts the function of your pancreas causing a multitude of unpleasant symptoms i ncluding panic attacks. it can drain your energy away . You will have read about blood sugar levels earlier in t his book. But these are all good signs. it could be an anti-fungal drug 28 . or contain additi ves which chronic sufferers could have intolerances to. By them in bulk. This is when all the caffeine in the body is mobilized and before it is eliminated it c an cause severe headaches. On the contrary. By eating lots of slow releasing complex carb ohydrate energy foods and protein together you have more energy anyway. it is also the food of choice for the Candida and it also prevents the absorption of essential minerals and vitamins. I now always have a 2 litre bottle of water on the go. You do not need sugar for energy. works out about 50 pence a day for the most important gift you can give yourself. It is not only empty calories (no vitamins or mineral quality). You will find by having 4 to 6 good quality small meals a day that you will not have cravings for sugar. like you get at Chinese restaurants. As well as the diet for Candida you must do something to stop it coming back. It also helps to keep your hydration levels up by making certain that 70 perc ent of your diet is made up of foods that are rich in water. You have to keep yourself hydrated. nausea and aches and pains. This does not include fru it juices made from concentrate like most juices are in your local supermarket. You may also feel more tired and lethargic for a while and get ache and pains while your body cleans i tself out and adjusts to your new way of eating. th at’s why I recommend that you take the following product. So I wanted to find a natu ral solution. Will changing my diet affect me? It should do. Sugar.All the foods on the formidable ‘banned’ list either feed candida.

Try drinking green tea in stead. That means fresh ve getables and fruits.

Bacterial cultures inten ded for supplementation are available in a number of forms. In 1992 Forest Herbs Research in New Zealand conducted a clinica l study into the effect of the two. discovered that when anethole w as combined with polygodial. commonly known as the Horopito or New Zealand Pepper Tree. But I can supply you. the activity of which is enhanced by anethole – the active ingred ient in Anise seed. on Candida albicans. In 1982. both drugs fail to get to the root of the pro blem and can cause unpleasant side effects such as blurred vision. 29 . such as powders or i n capsules. However. Taking Horopito Aniseed in addition to following a low-carbohydrate di et can provide relief from symptoms within days. Six years later a team of Japanese scientis ts confirmed polygodial’s ability to inhibit the growth of Candida and found that it acts primarily by damaging the permeable cell membrane of yeast cells. The recommended d ose of Horopito Aniseed is one capsule twice a day for 25 to 45 days. I wanted something natural without any side effects. in the US. As it is only available at the moment from one company in New Zealand called Forest Herbs. Their research showed that 76 percent of candidiasis patients experien ced significant improvements in their symptoms following treatment with Horopito Aniseed. Horopito is a traditional New Zealand herb that contains a compound ca lled polygodial. scientists from Canterbury University in New Zealan d isolated polygodial in the leaves of a native New Zealand tree called Pseudowi ntera colorata. as it takes a while to clear your system of all the toxins that you have accumulated. In th e course of their research they discovered that polygodical was able to suppress the growth of Candida more rapidly and effectively than a conventional anti-fun gal treatment called Amphoteracin B.like Nystatin or Lomotil. acidophi lus and B. in the form of Horopito Aniseed. dry mouth and nausea. It contains a herb called Horopito and a South American spice called An ise seed. it increased polygodial’s activity against Candida al bicans 32-fold. bifidum organisms although are useful are relatively low compared wit h the high-potency powders available.

Horopito Aniseed offers a safe alternative to prescription drugs Horopito Aniseed is fast providing to be an effective natural treatment for cand idiasis. See end of book for details! You will also need to replenish your friendly bacteria. You will n ot at the time of writing this book find Horopito Aniseed at any of your local h ealth food stores. you should be aware th at it can take several weeks to make a complete recovery from candidiasis.
