Building Chi...Your Life Force
Did you know that the quality of your food and supplements can affect your energy levels?
We’ve always been told that it doesn’t matter what you eat as long as you limit your calories, and that all fat is bad for you, but these old myths are slowly dying.
Healthy fat actually boosts your metabolism so that your body can burn more calories! Consuming healthy fats such as avocado, fish, eggs, and coconut oil is a great start , but the bottom line is that you can’t just add a lot of fat to a diet that is already high in sugar.
A better way of looking at your food intake is finding out what supplies your body with the most energy or “chi” to make you feel good and get you through the day. Building chi is one of the most important aspects of longevity and good health.
Healthy foods and tonics replenish and build chi. Poor food choices may give you a burst of energy from sugar, but will leave you feeling tired and exhausted at the end of the day.
In China, there is a group of herbs called tonics that are considered to be foods that build and replenish chi. Tonics are considered a normal part of the daily diet just like fat, protein, and carbs. These wonderful food grade herbs form the basis for TianChi and Inner Peace.
Combining these formulas every day with a diet based on real food, the body easily meets its daily requirements for energy and restoration...the best recipe for avoiding adrenal fatigue!
There is an old saying in China that sums it up well. “It’s ok to become tired but you should never become exhausted”. Being tired at the end of the day just means that you lived up to your potential. However, being exhausted means you didn’t supply your body and brain with enough of what it needs to produce good chi and you had to tap into your adrenals.
The same thing happens when you substitute coffee for a proper meal. The false energy may feel good right away, but you’ve turned on your adrenals and started using them as an energy source instead of making chi from food.
This is the recipe for chronic fatigue and the core issue around so many people reporting low energy, and it can all be avoided with the proper nutrients your body needs.
