Stress can can be manifested in the same signs or syptoms with everyone. But the thing is, stress can be caused by a wide spectrum of events happening around or within us. Here’s a few.
One cause of fatigue is anxiety. It is “The on-switch for every negative picture that you’ve ever had about yourself.” -Dr. Harriett Lerner. It’s physical symptoms include, of course, fatigue, sweating, headaches, irritability, need to frequently urinate, insomnia, feeling easily startled and overwhelmed, difficulty breathing and intensification of PMS and menopause symptoms. Try to learn how to interrupt your thinking; handle your fear in bite size pieces; talk it out with a friend who can listen without “fixing” you.
Borderline Anemia. If you are most tired between 11 am – 2 pm, you could have borderline anemia. Eat LOTS of dark green veggies – daily. Ask your doctor for the Serum Ferritin Test (do not self-medicate with iron pills. Get your docs go ahead.) Cook in a cast iron pan. Learn how to combine foods properly to maximize your iron absorption.
Candida or yeast infection. If you feel tired and limp all the time and foggy minded + craving sugar and “comfort” foods + extremely constipated + losing too much hair in your comb and have a history for anti-biotic usage. Eliminate everything “white” from your diet including sugar. Ask your doctor for a referral to a dietician who specializes in Candida recovery. This takes time to clear up. Be patient and get going.
Grief. Whether it is by death, desertion or divorce, grief can strike you and leave you with lack of vigor. Give time, time. Even though you want to isolate stay connected to healthy loved ones.
Constipation. Constipation feeds fatigue, literally. Because toxins aren’t being eliminated properly, they are in fact building up and demanding more of your body’s energy to process and store. If you do not regularly have 2-3 bowel movements a day, you are constipated. Why not add 2 to 3 TBSP of ground flaxseed to your morning cereal, bowl of yogurt.
Eye Strain – Spending all day staring at a monitor, watching the road while driving, needlepoint, T.V. Something so everyday can be so fatiguing. Despite you were sitting al day long infromnt of your computer or TV, you would wonder why at the end of the day you feel weak and tired.
