Do you ever need to drink a cup of coffee, order that coke, or pull into the convenience store for that energy boosting drink? Energy is youth, vitality. Lack of it is associated with apathy, and lack of enjoyment of life. It is no wonder that more than 70 million energy drinks are consumed daily in our country. Lack of energy is a problem for many adults, but finding healthy ways to combat this problem can be challenging. In many cases, people do not fully understand the root cause of their poor energy levels. For people suffering from these negative symptoms, The MIAMI Institute will develop an individualized plan to boost energy and restore vigor.
"We are suffering a "vital energy crisis" in America."
To assess a lack of energy, our Wellness department follows a Functional Medicine approach. We evaluate deficits in energy levels by identifying dysfunctions in biochemistry and the physiology of the body, as a whole. We must consider environmental factors such as where and how you live, activity level, sleeping patterns and eating habits. We then measure free radical damage, assess mitochondria function, toxic load, fatty acids distribution, amino acid balance, 200 types of food intolerances, hormone imbalances, weight management issues, and neurotransmitter levels. When indicated, we will also investigate those genetic polymorphism that may impact how your energy is produced. Treatment will depend on the cause but will surely address nutrition, sleep, exercise, and the right types of nutritional supplements involved in energy making. Sanitizing the intestinal function, balancing your hormones and eliminating toxins are always necessary. Stress management cannot be over-emphasized and our team is ready to assist you, as this is the core to the success of any Wellness program, especially if energy production is the source of your problem.
