Questions to Ask if fatigued
Questions to Ask if You are Constantly Fatigued
1. Are you
deficient in some ingredient?
Minerals, vitamins, essential fats, saturated fat
Vitamin C and scurvy -
Many sailors died of scurvy in the 1700s, simply because of a deficiency of
Niacin (B3) and pellagra -
From the 1700s until early
1900s many thousands died with a disease called pellagra, which induced "the
four D's": diarrhea, dermatitis, dementia, and death. Not until the 1930’s was
pellagra determined to be nothing more than a lack of niacin (vitamin B3).
Thiamine (B1) and beriberi
– More than 100
years ago, brown rice was replaced in some East Asian countries with
machine-polished white rice because it keeps better. This initiated an epidemic
of a disease called beriberi, which killed and crippled thousands. Dry
beriberi causes muscles to waste and partial paralysis, and wet beriberi causes
heart failure and weakening of the capillary walls, which causes the peripheral
tissues to swell with fluid.
In the 1930’s, it was discovered that the main cause of beriberi was that a
major source of thiamine had been discarded in the husk.
Today, people in wealthy nations have a
woefully deficient intake of certain necessary nutrients
Omega-3 - largely as a
consequence of eating meat from non-grass-fed animals, farmed fish and
How to Get
the Fats of Life
– “The Universal Medicine”
Iodine – mainly
as a consequence of today’s excessive intake of fluoride and chlorine (so called
goitrogens) that compete with iodine in the
“The Universal Medicine”
Vitamin C -
although they are receiving sufficient
vitamin C to prevent scurvy, it is still not
enough to maintain health in today’s world.
Vitamin C – “God’s
Vitamin D –
many people do not spend enough time in the sun
to ensure a healthy intake of this crucial hormone-like vitamin
– “The Sunshine Vitamin”
factors are now contributing to lower sulfate intake – efficient farming methods
have caused sulfur content in soils to be depleted (E.g. phosphate-rich
fertilizer interferes with sulfate absorption), drinking soft water eliminates a
significant source of sulfur as do typical diets high in grains. A sulfur
deficiency often leads to pain and inflammation associated with various muscle
and skeletal disorders.
– “Healing Mineral”
Many modern day illnesses are
consequential to the excessive dietary intake of the following
“White” refined wheat
(E.g. in bread, donuts, pancakes, cakes, cookies, pastries, pasta)
and refined rice;
- especially fructose (E.g. in high
fructose corn syrup, table sugar and agave nectar) in sugary drinks (mostly
sodas, but also in excess fruit juice) and processed foods;
Too much sugar
Too much fructose
Refined oils –
which supply amounts of
omega-6 fats that cause an imbalance with our
deficient omega-3 fat intake, and also
introduce health-damaging fats (E.g. Trans fats)
into our body;
Damaged/Altered (Toxic) Fats
Reduced-fat foods – other than damaged fat in
polyunsaturated oils that are refined or used for frying, fat is in fact,
NOT the commonly maligned culprit being
blamed for today’s health problems.
Rather we need more fat – but just the
From natural animal fat sources -
meat, fish and dairy products from
livestock that have eaten a chemical-free, traditional diet, in a wholesome,
outside environment without hormonal injections E.g. not cooped up in
Concentrated Animal Farming Operations (CAFOs)
Also, use only the most heat-resilient oils for
frying – i.e.
Expeller-pressed coconut oil (has no coconut flavor) or
not the polyunsaturated oils, such as
corn oil, sunflower oil, or soybean oil,
and not even the monounsaturated oils, such as olive oil and
2. Do you
need to avoid something?
harmful presences include:
Wheat - E.g. due to
allergy or the effect of newer hybrid species
Artificial Sweeteners –
E.g. Aspartame, sucralose
Harmful household/gardening chemicals
carpet chemicals, chemically scented (not using essential oils) air fresheners /
GM foods / Nano particles
(in food additives/cosmetics)
Unnatural/harmful energy fields
E.g. from the grid or use of cell phones
3. Do you
need to eliminate /detoxify something from the body?
Toxins – E.g.
lead, mercury, harmful chemicals from the “cides”
(such as pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, insecticides)
bacteria, viruses, fungi, protozoa;
Past resentments/emotional trauma -
current unhealthy emotional issues (such as
chronic anger, jealousy, inappropriate fear).
previous damage /surgery preventing healing?
Old scars, missing body parts:
Removal of gallbladder reduces the
efficiency of processing fats
Tonsils and appendix
are active constituents of the immune
system, and are “missed” when removed -
The appendix has recently been found to
be a safe haven for natural flora during pathogenic infection;
Having a section of intestine removed interferes
with the digestive process – also, old scars
can cause blockages.
