Debilitating fatigue isolates us from family, friends, social events even the ability to work. Heaviest at the end of the day, fatigue may interfere with our sleep making the cycle worse.
Food sensitivities may be the root cause of fatigue that has no apparent cause, or that can be related to adrenal fatigue or thyroid function. That’s because inflammation caused by food sensitivities will divert hormone production at possibly the thyroid or adrenal gland from producing those hormones and making inflammation.
Think of the body as a complicated highway system with a specific number of cars. If there are 20 roads and all the cars are on 2 roads making inflammation there are no cars to make hormones or function in metabolism. We remove the inflammation from the food sensitivity and the cars can flow freely on the roads they were designed to drive supporting normal healthy body function.
If you are dealing with any of these symptoms it could be related to a food sensitivity:
- fatigue (sluggish, tired)
- hyperactive (nervous energy)
- restless (can’t relax/sit still)
- daytime sleepiness
- insomnia at night
- malaise (feeling lousy)
- anxiety (fears, uneasiness)
- mood swings (rapid changes)
- lack of concentration/brain fog
My fatigue was so bad I had to have 4 alarms to wake me up! I had poor sleep, irritability, mood swings and unexplained muscle aches and pains. I also had mild heartburn, stomach and intestinal pains, cramps, bloating, nausea – you name it I had it! I was overweight and I felt bad all the time. Since the diet my sleep and fatigue has improved, my mood is more stable, my digestion is very good, I have no muscle aches or pains, I’ve lost weight and continue to loose weight!” —K. H.
