Why am I so tired?

Why am I so tired?
            Tiredness can be interpreted many ways and is a symptom of the bodies underlying problems of energy production, or lack thereof.
 In the natural healing world, we look to find the cause of that particular person’s tiredness or fatigue.
There can be many causes and we work with the principal that anything can cause anything. It is so important to find the underlying cause as just using products to force the body to have more energy can actually cause more problems and deepen the condition and lead to worse disease processes.
 We are always going to look at diet and lifestyle and try to improve those to reduce the stress that the body is under which gives the body more energy far living well.
Several common causes of tiredness and fatigue that we see in our office would include an underactive thyroid, heavy metal toxicity, underlying infectious processes that the body can’t completely get rid of, food allergies, depression and anxiety, and many others.
The key is to work with the patient and find out which one or more underlying conditions we need to handle so that the person has normal energy. Giving the condition a name like chronic fatigue doesn’t really help anything, you must find the cause. And even with the conditions listed above, if the underlying condition is lack of digestion, then you won’t digest your normal food and it will not nourish the body.
So all these factors must be looked at to regain Natural Health.

2. Food allergies and intolerances are common causes of bloating. Common offenders include lactose, fructose, wheat, gluten and eggs.

Healthy Tips for Eating Out
1.Probably the most important thing is to just choose food items that are mostly protein and/or vegetables. Most restaurants and servers will allow you to pick and choose certain items or sides with your entrée but realize there may be an up charge. 2.You don’t have to take the bread. Many restaurants bring bread before the meal and you can ask them to not do that.
