Paul, how is your thyroid function? What about your adrenal function? You can try taking your temperature first thing in the morning after 4 hours continuous sleep (minimum) to check that it's above 36.5
If it's not, then you should think about taking care of your thyroid and adrenal glands. Feeling tired, weak muscles, can't lose weight, cold back - my first thoughts would be to make sure nothing suspicious is behind it all. I don't know how easy/cheap it is for you to get them done, but a blood test for thyroid function and DHEA-S, and saliva test for cortisol levels will let you know if you're dealing with something more than the need to refine what you're eating. Make sure to have a proper holistic doctor look at the results, or compare them with what is on http://www.stopthethyroidmadness.com/. You can also take the quiz here http://www.adrenalfatigue.org/take-the-adrenal-fatigue-quiz to see how many other symptoms you might have that fit that picture.

In addition to the above, I would ditch the electric blanket. The good ol' hot water bottle, or heat pack are much better. Electric blankets can muck up your internal temperature regulation and energy production. You'll be better off in the long run without it.

I hope you start to feel better soon!!

Go for compliant herbs and spices that have a warming quality (e.g., ginger).

I would not try and take away your beloved teas - I love, love, love my daily green teas too - but I think Yaeli is correct about too much fluid weakening the kidneys.  Lowered adrenal function goes hand in hand with that and cold kidneys fits the picture.  And, it is a lot of caffeine which can drain the adrenals also.  Can you just cut down some?

Astragalus isn't an antibiotic.  It's an immune modulator and a tonic.

I would try 1 cup of green tea a day, for your adrenal's sake. Increase protein, maybe take HCL + pepsin with it if you don't feel like you deal with it fast enough. Easy to digest protein, like a shake, would be a good idea to combine with some pineapple and detox berries. That is also a good way to stay hydrated.

I quote "Astragalus- Early laboratory studies indicate that the herb might work as an antibiotic and might improve sperm motility. Astragalus might cause dilation of blood vessels and increase the ability of the heart to pump blood, which could be a useful effect for a variety of different heart conditions.

another quote

"How It Works
Astragalus has antiviral and antibiotic properties helpful for respiratory infections. Astragalus can widen the blood vessels and increase blood flow, to help lower blood pressure and eliminate excess water weight. It appears to restore T-cell ( a type of white blood cell) counts to relatively normal ranges in some patients with low levels due to cancer or other diseases."

It might not be 100% compliant, but have you tried Powerade or Gatorade? I find the electrolyte sports drinks give me an amazing energy boost when I am feeling totally blah. Just a thought.

Hi SF, those poweraides may work but the consequences are not good. there are best if you are a professional sports person perhaps but they don't have a good life expectancy.

Where did you hear this about the life expectancy thing? I can't imagine a better way to replenish the electrolytes....

It was on a tv programme recently in the uk. to clarify it was saying that athletes don't live very long not just beacsue of powade and the like but thatthe ingredients where absolutely NOT healthy. and in fact useless to people who do not work out in a big big way. sweetie.

ingredients Water, glucose, fructose,
citric acid, mineral salts (sodium chloride, magnesium chloride, calcium chloride, potassium phosphate), flavourings, acidity regulator (potassium citrate), stabilisers (acacia gum, glycerol esters of wood rosins), sweeteners (sucralose, acesulfame K), colour (brilliant blue).

Paul, I take medicinal mushrooms extracts regularly.

Browsing today my regular supplier's brochure, I came across info on Cordyceps, which may interest you.

Have you tried the Explorer's trio?
Yes it did all right for me, but I moved onto other things and did not notice any lack from not having it.

Quoted from karen


Was drinking tea after your meal a new routine for you? If you have always done that then this probably isn't relevant but I have trouble with fatigue after drinking tea and I think it's the tannins binding iron and causing anemia. I did recently read that adding lemon or milk to tea can counter tannins effect on iron. Other things that can help is taking vitamin C and also drink tea between meals.

The other side of it could be you are accumulating too much iron from the teas and have iron overload. Too much or too little iron both can cause fatigue. I hope you can figure it all out.
No the tea isn't new for me, and it usualy is too hot to take more than a few sips in the first hour after the meal.

At this ponit skipping tea for a week is looking like a good options - I will have salted water instead.

The last time I gave blood, I prepared "homemade sports drink" ahead of time and brought it with me. I put some sea salt, agave, and lemon juice into filtered water- I think about a teaspoon of agave and half a teaspoon of salt in a quart of water. Perhaps somebody who's done this more recently can verify the proportions.

I hope skipping the tea will lead to some answers for you. Lightly salted water sounds like a good replacement.

From reading the Encyclopedia, astragalus seems to be the swiss army knife of herbal supplements.  A good all-rounder.

After not having had tea for a week, I have concluded that drinking tea of any benificent kind is not a major factor in my kidney/circulation issue.  I will now be happy to drink my tea and lose the few pounds that I gained from the snack food I usually avoid by drinking tea.

I need to take more long walks.

I have experience that kind of thing. But in different situation.
In doing my laundry I have to sit down while doing it.
Then for numerous time I have observed that whenever I sit for a long time I feel my energy depleting fast. And question my self but how? I have done the best routine about btd today.
(I do my laundry once a week so it takes about 4 hours or so)

Then while surfing at the internet I saw that "sitting" slows down burning of calorie. And at that instant it suddenly connects.
When I`m on my laboratory experiment just sitting down for 3 hours not standing up.
Makes me really sleepy.

The next laboratory experiment I tried Standing up all the time. And viola it puts a big change.

Then I tried it on doing my laundry standing up. It actually works I don`t feel not    energetic.

Well I`m a type O. I don`t know for AB, B  and A which A`s do more on relaxing activities.

And me as an individual. Which would put some uncertainty.
Solutions like this enlighten you.


What has surprised me? What has touched me? What has inspired me?  
              
We are closer than we think   , keep pushing
