Fatigue/low energy

Shattered or knackered, being fatigued is an experience that for most of us is the trigger to put on your PJs and get a good night’s sleep. But what about the days when you just can’t get going in the morning? Or when you run out of steam and need an afternoon snooze half way through the day? Low energy is one of the most common complaints I see and although it could be a symptom of another underlying health problem (see the list below), it is mostly just down to diet and consumption of high caffeine/high sugar foods. Often you will reach for these because you are tired, but in the long term they just make matters worse.

  • Blood sugar imbalance
  • Food intolerance
  • Nutrient deficiency
  • Toxicity (toxins in the body)
  • Constipation
  • Hypothyroidism (under active thyroid)
  • Depression
  • Mal absorption (not absorbing the goodness out of your food)
  • Low blood pressure
  • Candida
  • Poor diet
  • Poor adrenal function (the gland that controls our stress hormones)
  • Stress
  • Insomnia

You will be amazed at how quickly some simple changes to your diet can affect your energy levels. Look forward to jumping out of bed with enthusiasm for the day ahead!

Metabolic balance.
