no pharmaceuticals have worked, and my knowlege of herbal remedies are limited, any pain relieving herbal recipes? my guess at the soreness is because he used his fingernails, but anyway, help! its ...
Up your B vitamins (get a multi-complex vitamin B and take daily)
Drinking lots of water throughout the day (with fresh lemon wedges) Being dehydrated can make you feel sluggish.
Never skip breakfast....breakfast is the key meal to boost your metabolism and to stay energized throughout the day....a banana is a very good choice.
Get 8 hours of continuous restful sleep.
Eat healthy and be active.
I can't use caffine either. The only thing that seems to work is taking a 15 min catnap. Some people say this makes them more tired, but for me, after the initial 5 minutes groggyness, it seems to help.
Guarana - i've used it and it works :)
it's a natual stimulant and gives you energy.
Because guaranine is chemically equivalent to caffeine, guaranĂ¡ is of interest for its potential effects on cognition. In rats, guaranĂ¡ increased memory retention and physical endurance when compared with a placebo.
rhodiola, l-tyrosine, acetyl -carnitine.
Vitamin B complex
i take something to help my adrenals. Adrenal cortex. as well as something to support my thyroid(natural) I also take vitamin b and goji juice. It helps alot.
These supplements are at whole foods.
Breakfast of fruit, salad for lunch and then cooked food at night.
and maybe fresh veggie juice in morning Even drinking herbal tea kinda feels like it helps you wake up
Also when you wake up..take some deep breaths. Stretch and do so simple yoga moves. You can find them online.
eat regular snacks . No more than 3-4 hours should go by without a snack. Combine a protein and a carb.( apple and cheese etc...) Protien shakes are good.
I have trouble getting up also and I've found the most succesful thing is to have someone call me. If I answer the phone and talk a sec I'll wake up much better than by an alarm clock.
i've read that eating an apple gives you even more of a 'high' than a cup of coffee & the perkiness stays longer besides being healthier.
Regular exercise and plenty of healthy foods will help boost your metabolism.You could also try a Protein bar...not an energy bar.
Drink plenty of water, and get a colonic if you have a diet high in red meat. You'll feel much better.
One of the best ways to wake up is to, first thing in the morning, drink a glass of ICE cold water 15 ounces (which is actyally almost 2 cups). This works because your body needs to heat the water up to process it, jump starting your metabolism. This is an eye opener and works great for me as i could never get my butt out of bed. Any stimulants even natural ones arn't usually come with just as many cons as pros but for the money coffee (caffeen) works great even though i don't drink it and it has been proven that habitual coffee drinkers (one cup in the morning) are less suceptable to diseaeses like parkensonsons and other nuralogical disorders. Anything else you can to do get your blood pumping is good a few sit ups or jumping jacks also dont skip breakfast even if its just a peice of fruit or a granola bar as this also keeps your metabolism going and helps give you enegery for the day and keeps you burning and processing the food you eat thorughout the day.
peppermint oil helps by smelling it or using it in a shower gel or even by chewing peppermint gum! Also citrus fruits are known to awaken your senses: oranges, grapefruit, or lemon are all good choices.

Eat 100% raw food diet and you will have more energy than you know what to do with it.
