Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired?
The Fact is most people in today’s society are fatigued to some level. The pace of life seems to have increased in the last decade and the majority of us describe ourselves as overworked, too busy, lacking life balance and generally run down. The worse thing is if left untreated, this abnormality starts to feel normal.
The cold hard truth though, is what’s really normal is the complete opposite. Our bodies are designed to be energised and full of life not tired all the time. We can and should be jumping out of bed every day with a smile and excitement about the day. If you have to force yourself to get up in the morning and drag yourself through the day with coffee and sugar fixes then you’re more than likely fatigued. For an increasing number of people, persistent unremitting tiredness has become a major problem.
Fatigue occurs if the mechanisms that provide the body with the energy to function are not working effectively. The result is that everything slows down, both physically and mentally, and functioning normally becomes harder and harder. The resulting low levels of energy and enthusiasm affect all facets of life – relationships, performance at work, increased weight, mood, desire to eat well and exercise – just to name but a few.
Am I suffering fatigue or am I just tired?
Some times it is difficult to know whether you just need a holiday or whether you have underlying fatigue that needs to be addressed before you can be your best. Ultimately we all have ‘off days’ but if you always feel tired, then it might be time to look at the underlying mechanisms, your diet and lifestyle and make sure all is well.
Vibrant Nutrition will help identify your current level of fatigue, and what can be done to address it. There may be, for example, underlying mechanisms that may be causing the fatigue, that require addressing along with food choices and lifestyle issues. Testing Cortisol and DHEA is one method we can identify adrenal fatigue caused by chronic stress. To find out more on cortisol & DHEA testing see the Adrenocortex Stress Profile. This two pronged strategy – addressing lifestyle issues as well as nutritional/health issues – developed into a treatment plan can have amazing and rapid results.
For chronically fatigued people, small steps one at a time may be a more appropriate course to steer, as even small steps are worthwhile. Vibrant Nutrition will work with you to help you set realistic goals and ensure that you are not over-doing it.
Working with Vibrant Nutrition to perform an energy ‘tune up’ to get your energy producing mechanisms working again is one of the best ways to improve both the quality and quantity of your life. We look for the cause of your low energy & weight gain and help you get back into balance so you bounce out of bed in the morning and the excess weight melts away.
If you feel you’d like to be a better parent or partner or you’d like to put more into your career but don’t have the energy then learning and understanding how to Eat For Energy is for you. Stress and Eating for Energy are addressed in my Road to Wellness Program.
