Dr Libby Weaver
Release Date: 15 September 2015
It's easy to pass off feeling tired and put it down to a multitude of things in our life - your job, your children, your relationships, but there is an enormous array of factors that might be draining you of energy - and often without you even realising it. For example, just sitting for more than an hour produces biochemical reactions in the body that make you feel more lethargic. Also, having open loops churning over in your mind impacts your body in a similar way to having too many apps open on your phone, flattening its battery and draining you of energy.
In this ground-breaking new book Dr Libby explores the concept that energy is the most important currency of our health and a far more accurate indicator of health status than weight. Using her unique three-pillar approach she explores the biochemical, nutritional and emotional factors that impact our energy. She also looks at the different rituals, foods, movements and emotions that either make a deposit of energy or a withdrawal - promoting the creation of more energy or contributing to its further depletion.
Learn just how varied the factors that influence our energy can be, from infections to hayfever, posture and even our inability to say no. Stress and nutritional factors are also explored as they can significantly impact our precious energy. Dr Libby explores where energy comes from, how its made, what depletes it and how to reignite it. Her new research includes how allergies and brain chemicals such as dopamine can influence energy levels and she explores a new concept around open loops, a feeling that our brain has too many tabs open of tasks still to do, and the impact this has on our zest for life. Empowered with the information in this book, learn simple but powerful stratgies to help liberate yourself from exhaustion and live a life with more energy.
