I bet some of you who deal with chronic fatigue are feeling very misunderstood by others. Maybe you have a fear of not being believed or being perceived negatively.
I have compassion for you. Fatigue is not something someone can see, like a broken ankle; it’s something that they have to take your word for.
If you’re coming into the new year 2020 with fatigue, I have help for you today. It is simply not possible to make a resolution to beat fatigue if you don’t know what the underlying cause is!
But what you can do is try energy-boosting, mitochondria-loving supplements that support GI health, which can help you produce energy.
Sometimes just ending a tedious job or leaving a challenging relationship can fill your cup with new reserves of energy. I want to be careful that I don’t medicalize fatigue because we live in a weird day and age where every symptom gets you a drug!
Since I’m a registered pharmacist and crazy about natural medicine, I’d like to move away from the psychological perspective now and offer you some treatment possibilities.
These are some of the most important energy hacks and hormone considerations that may help you:
• CoQ10 – Important for muscle contractions.
• Thyroid – Low levels of thyroid hormone cause mental and physical fatigue.
• TMG – It’s a methyl donor that spawns other energy-producing nutrients.
• Hormones – Reduced estrogen can cause fatigue.
• Iron – Iron deficiency anemia can make you tired and dizzy.
• Creatine – Creatine leads to more adenosine triphosphate and supports muscle health.
• Greens – Certain superfoods and super fruits can improve mental clarity and physical stamina.
• Zinc – New research suggests that zinc enhances cellular energy reserves.
In short, if you have low energy along with digestive issues, the best way to reclaim energy is to start with your digestion because a lot of mitochondria reside in the gut. Emerging research shows there is crosstalk between your gut and your muscles!
Supplements such as those above may be extraordinarily helpful and should be carefully considered with the help of a qualified practitioner.
