At an early age, I remember watching my mother struggle with severe exhaustion. She found it difficult to just get out of bed in the mornings, and function through out the day. It impacted me and my brothers and our sports, but I really didn’t appreciate how fatigue would personally devastate my life until I reached my 30’s. I found I had the same illness and there wasn’t a cure, at least not in the man-made pharmaceutical market.
I went to several doctors and was tested for just about everything, including fibromyalgia syndrome and chronic fatigue, anemia (low blood count) and for thyroid problems, but all the test came back normal. I had no relief and it as starting to impact my work and family life. I was exhausted, – all the time!
I have never been one that believes in the pharmaceutical companies and the drugs they develop. They are in the business to make money, and that means keeping you sick! It’s amazing that people take drugs and experience severe side effects and they take more drugs to combat those side effects.
I read that, our planet contains all the natural remedies for every ailment and disease, and it’s true. While researching my symptoms and possible natural treatments, and I have experimented with almost everything to find some type of relief. While researching natural remedies, I came across several articles about Maca. Maca has been called “Peruvian ginseng” and has been used for thousands of years to increase energy, stamina, libido, overcoming erectile dysfunction, enhancing mental focus and clarity and reducing depression. It sounded like a miracle herb!
I am a skeptical guy and I tend to research everything and all of my research into Maca was positive. I purchased it and started mixing a teaspoon a day in milk. The taste is sweet like sugar and can be mixed in almost anything. Some cultures use it as a sweetener.
My first experience as the rush of energy, but not like a caffeinated –jittery- rush, but a burst of energy. I felt good for the first time. It’s been 8 months and I mix a glass of milk or shake with 1-2 teaspoons twice a day. I don’t feel the fatigue anymore and there are also added benefits, which my wife appreciates! Research it for yourself or just try it for a month and see if it helps. What do you have to lose except being tired?
