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.

What should I eat

What Should I Eat?
This is a question that we’re asked all the time. And it’s a little more complex than it would seem at first glance. Our main long-term goal is to get patients off of refined flour and sugar as these are anti-nutrients. They rob the body of minerals and vitamins that the body can use repair itself or improve immune system function. We try to do this on a gradient scale as the person is able to increase their mineral intake which helps to reduce the cravings for sugar. Sugar creates an endorphin release when consumed and this is what causes the almost addictive nature of sweets.
At Natural Health, we strive to reduce patients’ addiction to sugar over time but understand that it is there. This means that we cannot give you the perfect diet sheet because one diet doesn’t work for everyone all the time during your treatment. This is one of the major purposes of the diet sheet, to help, over time, remove the bad foods and increase the good foods. Every patient is different…

Here are 5 proven ways to reduce or eliminate bloating.

1. People who experience bloating often have increased sensitivity to food in the stomach. Therefore, eating smaller meals can be very useful.

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

3. Swallowed air can contribute to bloating. A major cause is drinking carbonated beverages, which contain gases that are dissolved in the liquid.

4. If certain foods make you feel bloated or give you gas, try cutting back or avoiding them. Eating fatty foods can also slow digestion and may contribute to bloating for some people.

5. Probiotic supplements can help improve the bacterial environment in the gut, which can help reduce symptoms of gas and bloating.

Healthy Tips for Eating Out

With the holiday coming up and people traveling to different events, I thought this might help

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. Yes it taste good but you don’t need the cards. 3.Stay away from the deep-fried items as the oil that they used to fry the food is probably hydrogenated and then reused many times. This would include french fries and many of the fried appetizers. 4.Always have a salad. Most of the better restaurants have a salad with the entrée or have good salad choices as the entrée. This is a great way to get your vegetables and fiber and they taste good too. Just be careful of the sugar laden dressings. Try to use an oil…
