While occasional tiredness is unavoidable for most of us, regular sleepiness and fatigue can signal an underlying problem that needs attention.
If you find yourself frequently tired for no apparent reason, here are eight possible reasons why, along with ways you can help fight back and start feeling a whole lot perkier—fast!
#1: An overwhelmed immune system
For most of the history of mankind, chemicals were completely unheard of.
Now we currently have over 85,000 chemicals in our food, environment and medications!
These are completely foreign to your body--most notably your immune system that has to figure out how to deal with this chemical onslaught and gets stressed to the max as a result.
Plus our guts are suffering the effects of a modern processed food diet and poor digestion, which results in harmful bacteria overgrowth in the gut (dysbiosis) which can hamper your immune system functioning.
The result? You are FAR more susceptible to energy-sapping infections and viruses, as well as food allergies and autoimmune diseases.
How to fight back: In addition to a healthy diet of real foods, probiotic supplementation can be a big help.
And when it comes to a probiotic supplement that is up to the task, Super Shield multi-strain probiotic formula is your ticket.
Super Shield’s 13 strains of top-quality helpful bacteria are ready to help strengthen your gut wall, encourage better digestion and support your immune system functioning.
#2: Inadequate sleep
Up until about 130 years ago when Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, the average person got 9 hours of sleep per night.
Now thanks to lights, TVs, computers and video games and longer and longer workdays we’re down to an average of 6.5 hours per night….and that’s not enough for your body and mind to rejuvenate like they need to.
How to fight back: If you’re a Night Owl, it’s time to change your ways. Turn off the TV, power down the computer and get some decent rest. At least 7- 8 hours should be your goal.
#3: Sluggish thyroid or exhausted adrenals
Your thyroid gland is your body’s Grand Central Station of metabolism, and that includes creating energy from your foods.
So if you have low-functioning thyroid (which is becoming increasingly common due to autoimmunity, medications, stress, toxins and heavy metal exposure) you are practically guaranteed to be dragging as a result.
Plus your adrenal glands signal your body to create energy when you are under physical or mental stress.
Problem is, many of us have chronic ongoing stress—and this exhausts our adrenal glands so they can’t do their job as well or at all…and your energy can come crashing down as a result.
How to fight back: If you suspect thyroid or adrenal hormone deficiencies may be an issue for you, it’s time to get your hormone levels tested and get appropriate treatment.
And if your adrenals are sluggish, supporting them nutritionally with Dr. Salerno’s Adrenal Factor can be a big help.
Dr. Salerno’s Adrenal Factor dietary supplement is a special blend of vitamins, nutrients and natural glandulars that provides adrenal support for fatigue, stress and a host of other symptoms of low adrenal function.
In addition, lowering stress and having a healthy diet are important here too.
#4: Lacking exercise
Exercise leads to an interesting phenomenon--it requires energy, but it also creates energy.
As you become fitter, all of your organs work better because they're getting the oxygen and glucose they need and eliminating toxins -- and that means increased energy!
How to fight back: You don't need to join a gym--even walking at a decent pace for at least 30 minutes is fine. According to research presented by the American Heart Association, women who walked briskly each week reported almost 20 percent more energy than their couch potato peers.
So get your doctor’s OK and get going!
#5: Nutrient deficiencies
Thanks to our nutrient-poor typical diets loaded with processed foods, refined carbs and trans-fats, our poor bodies are suffering from droves of nutrient deficiencies.
Two of the most common deficiencies that can affect your energy level are Vitamin B12 and Vitamin D.
Vitamin B12 is absolutely vital for your body to create energy. Plus vitamin D is essential for proper immune function and the avoidance of energy-killing autoimmune diseases, viruses and infections.
How to fight back: If you’ve got a known or suspected B12 shortage, Hydroxaden 2.5 can help turn that around for you.
Hydroxaden 2.5 is a simple to use Vitamin B12 spray that gives you the 2.5 mg of B12 (in the form of hydroxocobalamin) suggested by many nutrition experts. Just five quick sprays under your tongue each day is all it takes.
And if vitamin D deficiency is an issue for you, Dr. Salerno’s Vitamin D-K Factor can help take care of that. Vitamin D-K Factor provides an impressive 5,000 IUs of vitamin D, plus the added benefit of vitamin K to support bone and cardiovascular health.
Since diabetics have trouble using glucose properly (due to insulin resistance), and glucose is your body’s main source of energy, one of the common symptoms of diabetes is fatigue.
How to fight back: See a doctor and get tested if you suspect diabetes may be an issue. (This is especially true if you are also experiencing frequent thirst and increased urination.)
And if you’re also overweight, it’s essential to clean up your diet and get regular exercise.
#7: Sleep Apnea
Sleep apnea is a disorder characterized by brief interruptions of breathing during sleep.
With sleep apnea, your upper airway actually closes or collapses for a few seconds, which alerts your brain to wake you up to begin breathing again.
How to fight back: See a doctor for a sleep evaluation. In addition, this is another condition where your weight makes a difference. Overweight people tend to have more or worse sleep apnea than slimmer people.
#8: Poor digestion
This is the Granddaddy of them all.
Nothing your body does demands more energy than digestion.
So if yours is not going along so well, you can forget having anything that even closely resembles a level of energy.
Now, the key to having good digestion is to eat meals that your body can more easily break down and make sure you have enough enzymes to do the job.
How to fight back: The winning team of Great Taste No Pain and Digestizol Max can help turn around a cycle of poor digestion...fast.
The Great Taste No Pain health system can show you how to structure high-energy, more easily digestible meals that are made from nutrient-rich REAL foods and taste positively fantastic!
