I searched Google using the keywords restore life force energy and restore energy. To my great surprise, the former has 49,700,000 hits, and the latter has 2,040,000,000 hits. So many articles are available on the internet that you will never be able to read them all during your earthly life. No wonder many people have a strong interest in knowing about restoring their life force energy or restoring their power.

What is life force energy?

Life force energy in our body consists of the energy you inherit from your parents, the energy you obtain from food and the energy you get from breathing in clear air. The energy you receive from your parents keeps depleting as you age. It needs to be replenished constantly by the energy you get from food.

To have vital life force energy, we should abstain from exhausting ourselves mentally and physically. If we are depleted, it will take a long time to recover life force energy. It would be wiser to avoid placing yourself in a situation where you are exhausted. Prevention should come first.

What we eat is what we are.

What we eat today becomes what we are tomorrow. This indicates the significance of the foods we eat daily.

Officials in ancient Korea collect good quality food items which grow in particular regions. They serve good quality food for kings and their families. We now eat better quality foods than the kings.

It is not what we eat but how food sources are grown that matters now. I have wondered how people living in the countryside stay healthy while eating meat frequently. It is a revelation that animals on grains contain high omega-6 in their flesh. In contast, those on plants contain omega-3 in their essence. Omega-6 is the fatty acid that causes cardiovascular diseases. Omega-3 is an excellent fatty acid that helps you protect against cardiovascular diseases. The ideal ratio must be 1 to 1 between omega-6 and omega-3. However, most of the animals we get meat from nowadays feed on grains, not plants. As we eat more meat, we end up having a ratio of 6 to 1 between omega-6 and omega-3. If we cannot afford plant-fed meat, we should avoid overeating meat.


We tend to yearn for more and more life force energy. Some people take vitamins, probiotics, meditation, and so on. Everything will help get more life force energy. However, what it matters most is not to reach the point of burnout.

Burnout is the state of feeling exhausted or depleted mentally and physically. Once you reach the level, it will take a tremendous amount of time before you recover. This is a red flag that you should listen to. Many people need to pay more attention to what their body says.

Our bodies always try to tell us in various manners about how they feel. They want to communicate with us, but we are too occupied to listen to their message. Listening to your body to restore your life force energy is worthwhile.

Acupuncture and herbs

I always enjoy treating people with various disorders using acupuncture and herbal medicine, sometimes with moxibustion. I always ask them to consider changing their lifestyle. Lifestyle change includes regular exercise. Our body returns to its previous state when we do not alter our lifestyle.

I also make it a rule to recommend that all my patients visit once a month, at least for maintenance, once their chief complaints are resolved. Some of my patients regularly visit once every three or four weeks for care.

Exercise is too important to skip every day. However, exercise alone cannot resolve health issues. In addition to regular exercise, you should receive regular treatments using acupuncture, moxibustion, or herbal medicine, whether you have any health issues or not. This is how we can restore our life force energy.
