Constant Fatigue

10 Reasons to Feel Tired All the Time

Everybody gets tired from time to time, but for some people, it’s a daily struggle. Some people are always tired, and this affects them physically, mentally and emotionally.

Work becomes difficult, sometimes impossible. Physical strength is lacking, and mental focus takes a dive. Instead of enjoying the challenge you just want to rest or procrastinate.

Not only is it a struggle to do things but your mood is impacted too. You may feel down and emotionally drained or “stressed out” and “tired but wired”.

As both energy and mood are affected, a chronically tired person will often skip social events or activities. What can you do when your just not up for it?

A person may feel life is passing them by. It’s frustrating for a person to see their potential wasted, knowing they are capable of so much more, if only there was more gas in the tank.

Days turn into weeks, weeks into months and months into years. Hopes, dreams, aspirations and ambitions are robbed by constant daily fatigue.

Thankfully it is possible to regain your energy levels. Even if you have been stuck for years with chronically low energy levels it is possible to “reboot your system” and regain your energy levels.

There is hope! But how you go about doing this will all depend on what’s causing your fatigue in the first place.

The aim of this post is to help you identify what the root cause of your fatigue is. If you can figure out what’s causing it, you can begin to take steps towards improving your energy levels.

The Cause of Fibromyalgia

The Cause of Fibromyalgia

98% of true cases of Fibromyalgia are women, which is interesting. Fibromyalgia can be defined as body-wide pain perceived in the soft tissues. It is often accompanied with consistent fatigue, low moods, anxiety, poor sleep and waking up feeling unrested. There also maybe some gut related issues such as gas, bloating, constipation and/or diarrhoea.

That’s quite a lot of symptoms and for this reason, Fibromyalgia is often misdiagnosed. In fact, when put under the scrutiny of a board of Rheumatoid experts in Fibromyalgia, two-thirds of patients have been shown to be misdiagnosed!

Fat adaption improves energy levels, mood and mental performance. This article takes a look at how I’ve been getting on with it.

Calcium Supplementation – Is it Necessary?

Do we need to supplement calcium or can we get it from foods? Can we take too much and how do we know what we need?

Calcium is a trace mineral which people often wonder if they are getting enough of. The dairy industry has hammered at us for years with the idea that we need milk for calcium, which is especially important for growing youngsters. It’s been their nutrient of choice to anchor in the idea that milk is an essential part of our diet.

You may be interested to hear that while most the calcium in your body is stored in the bones (99%), it actually plays an important role in the nervous system. It’s an electrolyte, meaning it carries an electrical charge and without it our nervous system will suffer.

5 Tips to Enjoy Christmas and Feel Terrific

Christmas is time to relax and enjoy the company of loved ones. It’s also a time of feasting and merriment. In traditional times when food was not so abundant,  feasting meant fine meats, seasonal vegetables and traditional homemade puddings. Just having that was considered well off as being able to afford good food was not something everybody enjoyed.

These days we have an abundance of food. Year round we are overfed but often undernourished. Modern diets are usually high in sugar and refined carbohydrates while low in vital nutrients needed for good health. At Christmas, this goes into overdrive as we gorge on sweet things, alcohol, coffees and other treats.

If you’re anything like me there comes a point during Christmas where it starts to feel like too much. Too many parties, late nights, buckets of chocolates and my favourite mince pies, all take their toll on your health and state of well being. Christmas week draws on and the hangover intensifies.

Healing the Microbiome

Ah the microbiome, the forgotten organ, yet so critical for our health.

This article follows up from “Taking Care of Your Microbiome” Part 1 & Part 2, so check those out to find out how the micobiome interacts with the rest of the body and why it breaks down. In this article we’ll take a look at some practical steps to “Heal the Microbiome”

The microbiome is name given to the trillions of bacteria and yeasts that live inside your gut. The exact number is completely unknown but people like to pretend it’s around 100 trillion (1).  These bacteria interact with our bodies either helping or hindering both our guts and our immune systems.

Taking care of your microbiome (part 1)

‘All disease may begin in the gut, but the key to a healthy gut is the microbiome’.

Microbiome is the name given the some 10 trillion bacterial cells that make their home inside your gut (1). There are more than 1000 different species in each gut and the species vary from person to person. Research shows the micobiome effects many aspects of human health. These include weight gain (2), autoimmune conditions (3), digestive problems, mood (4), hormonal issues and susceptibility to colds and flues.
