Hi there,

As the topic of this thread states ... I am a 10-Year Survivor and I am also a vegan.  I love the healthy lifestyle I lead, but I have one issue.  I'm hoping to get some advice here.
I am a mom to three young boys.  I'm also a widow having lost my husband to cancer, so I am always on the go.  There is never a moment for me to rest.  I have my own business, but work out of the  house 4 days a week.  My issue is that I never seem to have an ounce of energy.  I thought one of the big benefits of becoming vegan was that I would have more energy than being on a non-plant based diet.  I've had my blood work done every year since becoming vegan and if my iron isn't low then my B12's are low.  I resort to taking supplements to increase these levels.  I have been tempted so many times to cook up a plank of liver just to see if my energy levels increase, but I am desperately trying to hang on to my vegan ways.
If anyone has any suggestions on how to increase my energy levels, I would greatly appreciate it.  Feeling tired all the time doesn't bode well when I'm supposed to be this fun, energy-filled mom to three young boys.  They want me to kick the soccer ball around with them, they want me to get in the water with them at the beach ... I do it, I do all of it, but I drag myself to do it and I feel badly for that.
Thanks for listening.

I struggle with the same issue.  My doctor recommended that I take in pill form NADH (CO-E1 NADH).  This does help with energy.  I got it off of Amazon for a good price.  But you might be able to find it cheaper elsewhere.  


I am sorry about the loss of your husband.

My integrative doctor recently recommended I increase my Vitamin D3 and add adaptogen herbs - I ended up purchasing a product for adrenal glands from Garden of Life. I take Juice Plus+ capsules and their Omega Blend which has helped me so much, yet, I needed to add the Vitamin D and the herbs for the adrenal glands. I have very low blood pressure - I have since college (and maybe before - don't remember blood pressure checks before then.) Plus I carry a low heart rate and low body temp. I'm not vegan - however, I eat mostly plant based as well.

I eat Keto adaptive which means healthy fats, low animal proteins and a bunch of low glycemic fruits and veggies. (No grains, beans or dairy) Eating vegan to me means that I would have more glucose based energy which doesn’t last as long as healthy fat as your energy source. 


I eat a bunch of cruciferous and green leafy veggies, juice daily and take about 40 different supplements along with Juice Plus+ (and sell it too) to ensure my phytonutrients are giving me the defenses I need against free radicals. 


I too contemplated going all vegan but the impact of the carbs load to sugar based energy deters me as I don’t want to encourage the insulin growth factor response OR be depleted of the variety of nutrients my body needs to keep a strong defense against circulating cancer cells.

Hi 

I am doing research as I am recovering from breast cancer and am trying not to take Letrozole a estrogen blocking drug.  I am looking into mushroom blends and I know there are mushrooms that are sold in powdered form or capsules that help specifically with energy levels.  I have not started taking them yet but plan to this week.  The other supplements I have started are D3 5,000 mg, tumeric with pepper, and milk thistle for my liver.  I am adding supplements slowly.  Good Luck!

Hi! I've been using kratom for the bone pain of MBC and it also gives me energy. Available online. Do some research. Reddit is good for discussion. Green kratom is more for energy, while red is better for pain. Good luck!

Hey, busy mom,

What are you doing for protein?  I'm not vegetarian but I'm also not a big meat-eater.  I remember mentioning at work one day that I seemed to be fatigued all the time and someone asked, "Are you eating meat?"  I hadn't been and that's what my body needed.  As a vegan I know that you'd have to use other sources but maybe you should ramp it up some.
