Home Remedies For Fatigue

If you're sick and tired of being tired, then you need to figure out the reason for your fatigue. Too many late nights at the office? A crying baby? Poor diet? Check in with your doctor to make sure there's not a medical condition causing your fatigue. Once you get a clean bill of health, try these remedies to help you perk up.

Natural home remedies

  • Drink some tea boiled with 1/4 teaspoon powdered cardamom.
  • Sprinkle fresh ground cinnamon on your porridge, cereal, toast or whatever you have for breakfast. It triples the ability of insulin to metabolize glucose.
  • Drink a glass of juice that is one part grapefruit and one part lemon.
  • We've read case histories in which, within a few weeks, the intake of bee pollen not only increased a person's physical energy, but restored mental alertness and eliminated lapses of memory and confusion.

Suggested dosage: Take 1 teaspoon of granular bee pollen after breakfast, or two 500 mg bee pollen pills after breakfast.

Start by taking just a few granules of bee pollen each day to make sure you have no allergic reaction to it. If all is well after three days, increase the amount to ¼ teaspoon every day. Gradually, over the next month or two, work your way up to 3 teaspoons of bee pollen taken throughout the day.

  • If you're tired the second you wake up in the morning, try this Vermont tonic-in a blender, put 1 cup of warm water, 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and 1 teaspoon of honey. Blend thoroughly, then sip it slowly until it's all gone. Have this tonic every morning before breakfast and, within days, you may feel a difference in your energy level.

WARNING: People who are allergic to bee stings should consult a doctor before taking bee pollen.

In addition, diabetics and people who are allergic to honey should not try the honey remedy.

  • A quick picker-upper is 1/8 teaspoon of cayenne pepper in a cup of water. Drink it down and get a second wind.
  • If you're suffering from mental fatigue, try this Austrian recipe-thoroughly wash an apple, cut it into small pieces, leaving the peel on and place the pieces in a bowl. Pour 2 cups of boiling water over the apple and let it steep for an hour. Then add 1 tablespoon of honey. Drink the apple/honey water and eat the pieces of apple.

Take Off Your Shoes

  • If possible, walk barefoot in dewy grass. The next best thing is to carefully walk up and back in six inches of cold bath water. Do it for five to 10 minutes twice a day-in the morning and late afternoon.
  • If you have a bad case of the drowsies, puncture a garlic pearle (soft gel) or cut a garlic clove in half, and take a few deep whiffs. That ought to wake you up.

Energy Boosters

  • A Chinese theory is that "tiredness" collects on the insides of one's elbows and the backs of one's knees. Wake up your body by slap-slap-slapping both those areas.
  • You don't have to depend on caffeine to stay awake. Mix 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper to 1 quart of juice-any kind of juice with no sugar or preservatives added. Throughout a long drive, or a night of cramming, as soon as you feel sleep overcoming you, take a cup of the cayenne-laced juice to keep awake and alert.
  • Tough day at the office? Need to get that second wind? Ready for a drink? Tired of all these questions? Add 1 tablespoon of blackstrap molasses to a glass of milk (regular, skim, soy or rice milk) and bottoms up.

Reach for the Sky

  • Call on your imagination for this visualization exercise. Sit up with your arms over your head and your palms facing the ceiling. With your right hand, pluck a fistful of vitality out of the air. Next, let your left hand grab its share. Open both hands, allowing all that energy to flow down your arms to your neck, shoulders and chest.

Start over again. This time, when you open your hands, let the energy flow straight down to your waist, hips, thighs, legs, feet and toes. There! You've revitalized your body. Now stand up feeling refreshed

Get Figgy with It

  • A bunch of grapes can give you a bunch of energy. But grapes may be too perishable for you to carry around. If so, try dried figs. They sure can pack an energy punch! They're delicious, satisfying, have more potassium than bananas, more calcium than milk, have a very high dietary fiber content and no cholesterol, fat or sodium.

Most important, figs have easily digestible, natural, slow-burning sugars that will get you going and keep you going, unlike the quickfix, fast-crash processed sugar in junk food.

Herbalist Lalitha Thomas, who lists figs as one of the 10 Essential Foods (in her book of the same name, published by Hohm Press), recommends making a serious effort to get unsulfured figs. Eat a few at a time-but don't overdo it. Figs are also known to help prevent or relieve constipation.

  • When you just can't keep your eyes open or your head up and you don't know how you'll make it to the end of the workday; run away from it all. Go to the bathroom or a secluded spot and run in place. Run for two minutes-this should help you keep going the rest of the day.

Three Cheers for Chia

  • According to a study of American Indians, a pinch of chia seeds helped the braves brave their arduous round-the-clock days of hunting. Ground chia seeds, available at health food stores, can be sprinkled on salads or in soup for those on-the-go, around-the-clock days when stamina counts.
