Tired of Being Too Tired - Part 2

Learning how to keep your body energized and reversing or preventing the effects of chronic fatigue syndrome requires living a healthful lifestyle.  It may be challenging to understand the primary cause of chronic fatigue but thankfully there are immediate nutritional and exercise choices that that may offer a remedy.  

Step 1:  Get your blood analyzed

Going to your medical professional to have your blood analyzed fasting blood sugar, high cholesterol levels, liver enzymes, white blood cell count and Interlukin-6 values may reveal the presence of diabetes, cancers, Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease, autoimmune disorders and/or chronic infection in the body eating away your energy. Total testosterone, free testosterone, estrogen, T3/T4, free T3/T4, and TSH levels may also indicate thyroid disease, menopause or andropause being the cause of your chronic fatigue

Step 2: Start Exercising

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the American Heart Association and the Food and Drug Administration all agree that exercising can prevent disease. Exercising has been shown to strengthen the immune system, balance blood sugar levels, restore the production of proper hormones and reduce inflammation in the body. The general recommendation for exercise is 30 minutes three times a week.

Step 3: Eat Healthy

You may enjoy your ½ gallon of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream every night, but learning how to eat better will result in a more energized, passionate and attractive you. There are simple steps you can take to make it easier to learn new eating habits. Start by adding vegetables and fruits to your diet.  Next, try to eat something small 5 times a day. Lastly, try removing dairy, wheat, and processed foods from your diet to experience the greatest amount of energy your body can produce.

Step 4: Reduce Mental Stress

Learning how to deal with interpersonal situations or traumatic life experiences can drastically alter your energy. If you often get angry or upset during your daily life with similar situations or people, consider going to your local bookstore and visiting the self-help section or seeing a psychologist. Understanding more about yourself and learning the right tools to deal with life’s stresses may be just the key you need to remove your chronic fatigue.

Step 5: Take Vitamins

Supplementing with the right types of nutrients can help to combat fatigue and restore your body’s energy systems from all that stressful living. Restore your adrenals by adding Reishi. Keep your blood sugar balanced by adding Chromium.  Strengthen your immune system by adding Tulsi. Improve your sleep by adding Kava Kava. Try one of the supplements from each of the categories to help your body get back on track!

Chronic fatigue may be something you battle with every day right now, but by taking positive action in your life towards improving your health you will be well on your way to feeling better.
