Questions to Ask if fatigued

Questions to Ask if You are Constantly Fatigued

 

1.   Are you deficient in some ingredient?

E.g. Minerals, vitamins, essential fats, saturated fat

 

      For illustration

 

-       Vitamin C and scurvy - Many sailors died of scurvy in the 1700s, simply because of a deficiency of vitamin C.

 

-       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 non-pastured poultry.

 

How to Get the Fats of Life

 

-       Magnesium

 

Magnesium  – “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 body;

 

Iodine - “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 Medicine”

 

-       Vitamin D – many people do not spend enough time in the sun to ensure a healthy intake of this crucial hormone-like vitamin

 

Vitamin D – “The Sunshine Vitamin”

 

-       Possibly sulfur several 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.

 

Sulfur  – “Healing Mineral”

 

      Many modern day illnesses are consequential to the excessive dietary intake of the following nutrient-deficient foods  

 

-       “White” refined wheat flour  (E.g. in bread, donuts, pancakes, cakes, cookies, pastries, pasta) and refined rice;

 

Grains

 

-       Processed sugars - 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 good ones:

 

         From natural animal fat sources -  i.e.  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)

 

         ONLY cold-processed (expeller-pressed)  vegetable oils

 

         Also, use only the most heat-resilient oils for frying – i.e. Expeller-pressed coconut oil (has no coconut flavor) or butter,  but not the polyunsaturated oils, such as  corn oil, sunflower oil, or soybean oil, and not even the monounsaturated oils, such as olive oil and peanut oil

 

Coconut oil

Butter

 

 

 

2.   Do you need to avoid something?

 

      Examples of harmful presences include:

 

         Wheat - E.g. due to allergy or the effect of newer hybrid species

         Caffeine

         Damaged/processed fats

         Artificial Sweeteners – E.g. Aspartame, sucralose

         MSG

         Chlorine

         Fluoride

         Harmful household/gardening chemicals  E.g. carpet chemicals, chemically scented (not using essential oils) air fresheners / scented candles

         GM foods / Nano particles (in food additives/cosmetics)

         Unnatural/harmful energy fields E.g. from the grid or use of cell phones

         Destructive relationship

 

3.   Do you need to eliminate /detoxify something from the body?

 

         Intestinal waste

         Toxins – E.g. lead, mercury, harmful chemicals from the “cides” (such as pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, insecticides)

         Microbes - bacteria, viruses, fungi, protozoa;

         Past resentments/emotional trauma - current unhealthy emotional issues (such as chronic anger, jealousy, inappropriate fear).

 

 

4.   Is 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.
