Tiredness is one of those symptoms like headaches. Tiredness can be caused by a number of different areas. A few notables are Thyroid problems, Iron deficiency and Blood sugar problems. From a Naturopathic perspective, it is relatively easy to determine if the client has any of the above conditions and apply appropriate therapy. BUT the question remains as to why these conditions developed in the first place.

The two main types of Tiredness we hear about are, mental and physical.

Tiredness is a normal state for the body. It is only when the body does not recover by eating and sleeping that we consider it fatigue. It is quite normal to be tired after a big day or rigorous exercise. Tiredness is also part of the hunger process. It is one way the body tells us when to eat.

As a practitioner, I am more focused on the cause of the tiredness. Is it normal or excessive? Is there some underlying cause?

Tiredness can be aggravated by stress, not enough sleep, poor nutrition and excessive activity without appropriate rest periods.

Tiredness is often confused with BRAIN FOG.

Brain fog is hard to appreciate if you have never suffered this condition. Some symptoms are; waking up tired, frontal heaviness around the eyes, permanent headache or dull head. Some people say that their brain will just not function properly. They just can’t be bothered doing things. They can’t think clearly. Their brain hurts when they concentrate.

Another comment is “I just don’t have enough energy to get through the day”.

Quite often people can feel energetic in the body but the head says no. This condition can lead to comfort eating and weight gain.
Often we see people who eat well nutritionally, have a reasonable lifestyle with adequate rest, sleep etc but are still tired or just functioning around 80% capacity. Cells in the body require electrical stimulation as well as good nutrition to function well. Certain foods give this necessary stimulation whereas other foods can inhibit electrical stimulation. The result of eating incompatible foods results in poor cellular function. This is a major cause of tiredness and Brain Fog.

We can determine the correct foods for you to eat through our Hair Analysis.

Any test gives us information, how we use that information is how we help get people back to normal. Our Wellness Programme is contained in a 17 page report. You will receive your test results plus all instructions and general information to restore your health.

TIREDNESS AND BRAIN FOG

 

What is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?

In medicine and psychology, a syndrome is the association of several clinically recognizable features, signs (observed by a Health Practitioner), symptoms (reported by the patient), phenomena or characteristics that often occur together, so that the presence of one or more features alerts the Practitioner to the possible presence of the others.

Symptoms of CFS
Fatigue can cause a vast range of other physical, mental and emotional symptoms including:

  • Chronic tiredness or sleepiness
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Sore or aching muscles
  • Muscle weakness
  • Slowed reflexes and responses
  • Impaired decision-making and judgement
  • Moodiness, such as irritability
  • Impaired hand-to-eye coordination
  • Appetite loss
  • A reduced immune system function
  • Blurry vision
  • Short-term memory problems
  • Poor concentration
  • Hallucinations
  • Reduced ability to pay attention to the situation at hand
  • Low motivation.

From a Naturopathic perspective, we take a look at the patient’s symptom list and identify what those symptoms have in common.

From there we identify the ROOT CAUSES that are overloading the Immune System and creating Chronic Fatigue.

So where do we start?

 

Someone once said “We are what we EAT”

Diet seems to me to be a major contributor to CFS. Eating the wrong foods can cause many of the symptoms above.

Every cell, organ and system in your body is highly dependent on a regular supply of nutrition and electrical stimulation. Without adequate nutrition, the various organs cannot function correctly thus leading to many of the symptoms above.

Eating bio-incompatible foods can greatly affect digestion. Poor or faulty digestion does not allow the body to get the nutrition out of the food you eat.

A simple Bio-Compatibility Analysis test can reveal not only the foods that are contributing to your Fatigue but also give you a list of foods and products you CAN use. Feeding your body with Bio-Compatible foods will ensure each cell receives the right nutrition and electrical stimulation.

POST VIRAL FATIGUE

The symptoms for this condition are much the same as CFS. The difference is that many of the viruses we suffer remain in the body at a low level but still manifest many of the symptoms above.

Quite often people suffer from both conditions. Following the Bio-Compatibility Wellness Programme will sometimes enhance the immune system enough to deal with these hidden viruses. Other times you may need other Naturopathic medicines etc to defeat these invaders. The first stage always feeds the body correctly
