Imagine you are running and you get to the point where you can no longer run and you are forced to stop and catch your breath… when that happens, your ATP has been depleted…
It’s almost as if your body is running on batteries and your batteries have run low… when your ATP is running low, you have little or no energy and you must find a way to “recharge” or replace your batteries…
One of the worst things about hypothyroidism is having low energy… more like no energy. I call it being beyond tired because it’s not like you are tired and need a little energy booster to get you through the day.
When hypothyroidism strikes, no amount of coffee or energy drinks seem to get you going.
That’s why when I was looking for ways to get better I came across this concept of recharging the batteries of your body. One way to do that is by stimulating your body’s mitochondria, which is essentially like a battery charger.
I did this through juicing.
Here’s a juice recipe you can try to recharge your batteries and get energy.
- 2 small beets (or 1 large beet)
- 4 cups chopped kale
- 2 cups chopped celery
- 1 medium cucumber
- 1 green bell pepper
- 1 bunch parsley
- 1 bunch of cilantro
- 2 inches of ginger
- Green tea
This is something you can try when you feel that hypothyroidism fatigue, and to maintain once that starts to go away… and yes, when you learn to eat the right foods you can start living a more normal life.
