Due to the fast pace of modern life many people suffer with fatigue. It is normal to feel tired after a week of getting up early, working hard or going to bed late, but not on a regular basis. Some people experience tiredness every day and constantly feel worn out and drained. They become emotional and irritable with family and friends.

With a little effort you can identify and tackle the root cause of your fatigue and adopt a diet and lifestyle that truly energizes you.

It is important to identify the cause of fatigue before starting on a treatment. There may be a simple answer to fatigue such as anemia or low thyroid. A blood chemistry panel can identify these and they can be easily corrected.

Blood sugar fluctuations are another cause of fatigue. Over the past few decades there has been a trend towards low fat diets. These diets are often high in carbohydrates. Sweet, sugary and carbohydrate-rich foods temporarily fill a craving brought on by sudden tiredness, but they also cause our blood sugar levels – and with them our energy and mood – to yoyo.

It is essential to maintain an even blood sugar level. This can be achieved by avoiding high glycaemic foods such as sugary foods and drinks. Try eating five small meals a day. Eat whole grains, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and avocadoes. The more fiber, protein and healthy fat eaten with a carbohydrate the better your blood sugar will be regulated.


Energy rush! Simple sugars rapidly enter the blood stream, providing a temporary release of energy and a sugar buzz due to the release of a feel good factors called endorphins

Pancreatic panic! The high blood sugar panics the pancreas

Rash Response! The pancreas works overtime, releasing large amounts of insulin into the blood in an attempt to rebalance blood sugar levels

Fast crash! The overcompensation by the pancreas causes a rapid fall in blood sugar, leading to fatigue and irritability: sugar blues

And again! To feel better, you reach for more candy, and …….. repeat.

In other instances the fatigue may be related to stress. Stress can be due to emotions, toxicity, nutritional deficiencies, lack of sleep or over-work. The adrenal glands are our body’s primary shock absorber and determine our response to stress. When we are under stress our adrenal gland produces hormones – adrenaline, DHEA and cortisol – that allow us to go beyond our usual limits of endurance. However, if the stress is ongoing it will result in metabolic and nutritional imbalances.

Stress can affects our sleep patterns, immune system, muscle wasting, blood sugar regulation, male and female hormones, bone mineral density, mental clarity and energy.

There are Specialized Scientific tests that provide vital information about the adrenal glands. These tests enable nutritional programs to be tailored to meet your needs. Your program may include stress reduction, blood sugar regulation, rest, B-vitamins, vitamin C, minerals and herbs such as licorice root or ginseng. Products such as DHEA and cortisol should only be taken after specialized testing to establish their levels.
