Please join me on the Increase Your Energy Summit that launches May 15, 2017. The host, Steph Jensen, is a young health coach who has a personal interest in educating the public about energy. She struggled with low energy (in addition to depression and anxiety) for years! She had gone from doctor to doctor, each one giving her another diagnosis and another treatment plan at great expense and equally great frustration. Tests confirmed that she had candida overgrowth, gluten intolerance, hypoglycemia, low thyroid, and low adrenals all of which fall into the category of what I call Total Body Meltdown (TBM).
I told Steph that one of the major symptoms of TBM is fatigue. As I say on RnAReSet.com, Total Body Meltdown describes the current state of health of many of my customers, who are trapped in a health care system that is more about the system than about the care. The system that you are shunted into when you are suffering Total Body Meltdown separates you into your body parts, treating each part individually with an FDA-approved drug or surgery.
Even alternative medicine doctors, in a vain attempt to identify the underlying cause of these overwhelming symptoms, turn to expensive lab tests digging into genetic mutations, hair tissue mineral analysis, hormone testing, amino acid analysis, and vitamin and mineral blood tests. Most testing is not reproducible and is inaccurate, confusing, and even scary. Misinterpreted results lead to recommendations for ineffective and expensive supplementation while ignoring the basic needs of the body for good mineral nutrition, gentle detox, and a yeast free diet, which I have found to be crucial to healing the body.
That’s exactly what I talk about on this Summit – mineral deficiencies and yeast overgrowth as the basis of most chronic health problems, including fatigue.
When discussing energy problems, there is a lot of talk about mitochondrial dysfunction. The mitochondria are responsible for producing the energy in cells to be used by the body. It’s called ATP; it’s made in the Krebs cycle; and 6 of its 8 steps require magnesium. I think calcium excess and magnesium deficiency could be the underlying cause of mitochondrial dysfunction that many natural medicine practitioners say can trigger chronic fatigue.
Doctors often tell patients to get more exercise to help boost their energy. However, if you don’t have enough magnesium to power the Krebs cycle and make energy, exercise will exhaust you even more. If you have a condition called Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, a toxic buildup of lactic acid in the muscles from exercise can occur and cause pain. If the joints accumulate toxicity, arthritis can occur; if the nerves are irritated by toxins, they begin to lose their myelin sheath, and symptoms of MS can result. In fact, autoimmune disease may be the end stage of a buildup of toxicity exacerbated by deficiency of nutrients, such as magnesium, that are designed to clear toxins from the body.
When fatigue is misinterpreted by your doctor as depression, or anxiety, or apathy and treated with addictive prescription medication, the downward spiral of illness is ensured with most people ending up with candida overgrowth, leaky gut, gluten intolerance, hypoglycemia, hypothyroidism, and adrenal fatigue. As a necessary alternative you can get well and maintain a healthy body by using my Total Body ReSet program.
