How Can I Get More Energy With Nutrition?
Just like you can’t drive a car without fuel, your body needs fuel to function. Instead of petrol, however, what gives us energy is certain nutrients from the diet. Nutrients can give us energy either as a substrate converted to ATP in our cells or by otherwise contributing to ATP production.

The Power of Setting an Emotional Intention
Have you considered creating an emotional intention for the new year? Dr Dwyer in his book "The Power of Intention" says that it is never too late to set an intention for how you most want to feel. It colours the tone for your week, your day, or a challenging situation on the horizon. The idea of intention setting is to create a phrase or anchor word that works like an affirmation.

Three Common Causes of Fatigue and What To Do About Them
These are the three most common causes of fatigue: 1.Emotional and Mental Stress
Chronic stress wreaks havoc on the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis, leading to adrenal fatigue, a condition where the adrenal glands stop making enough of the stress hormone cortisol, leaving the body in a depleted state.

Mitochondria Are More Than The Cell's Powerhouse
Mitochondria are now recognised beyond their role as the cell’s “powerhouse”. A systematic review on the mitochondria in psychological stress describes the mitochondria as subcellular organelles that sustain life through energy transformation and intracellular signalling, with research showing mitochondria changes directly impact systemic metabolic regulation, brain function, immunity, ageing and life-span.

Fatigue is one of the most common side effects of living with cancer, and it can have a big impact, both physically and emotionally. Between 70 to 100 percent of patients suffer cancer-related fatigue, which for many, presents as an unprecedented wave of exhaustion. No matter how much rest you get, you can still be left feeling weak in energy and listless, as well as mentally and emotionally zapped. Even simple things like preparing a meal or using the TV remote can loom as massive feats, ...
