Chronic Fatigue: 5 Simple Ways to Combat Fatigue

If you are patient of Chronic Fatigue and want to overcome. Here, are 5 simple ways that will help you to overcome fatigue.

Eliminate food sensitivities

Now, there are certainly ways to get a food sensitivity test, an ALCAT or ELISA test will tell you what foods you are likely to be sensitive to. But in case you want results right now and you don’t want to go get blood work, you don’t want to do sort of an allergy or sensitivity test, I want to tell you the top eight common allergens to avoid that can really help you.

Wheat and dairy specifically the sticky protein in wheat, gluten, and dairy, are at the top of the list, as would be soy, eggs, fish, shellfish, peanuts, and tree nuts. Those eight common allergens are responsible for 91% of allergic reactions. But, allergies that are really blatant are not all we’re talking about. Many people have underlying sensitivities and you can have a reaction that is delayed days later than when you’re dealing with antigen exposure or consuming that food. But listen, if you have chronic fatigue, start by eliminating gluten, that would be any products containing wheat, rye, and barley, and eliminate dairy that contains A1 beta casein.

So if you can begin to eliminate food sensitivities, go on a diet that allows your gut to heal. Not only do I believe you will start to feel better, but you can actually reverse some of those sensitivities because I believe it’s very much gut related.

Increase vitamin b complex

When you deal with chronic fatigue you want to increase vitamin B complex in particular, vitamin B5 pantothenic acid is important for the adrenals and the adrenals are very much a player when it comes to chronic fatigue.

Now, you want to increase B vitamin intake in your diet. Pictured here is salmon. Meats are actually a great source of B vitamins, red meat, dark meat, poultry, and salmon. You can also take a fermented organic B vitamin complex. We know B12 is great for energy, B12 is great for the brain, zinc is great for the immune system which is a mineral you can add, B1 thiamine is good for energy.

If you can consume seeds which are also rich in B vitamins, sunflower, pumpkin, etc, they are typically less allergenic.

Increase potassium and magnesium

Potassium is found in green foods as is magnesium. There’s a huge shortage in my mind of these two important electrolytes, potassium, and magnesium, and most people dealing with chronic or even intermittent fatigue don’t get enough of it. So you want to consume more vegetables and more fruits. It is also found in coconut water, most veggie juices including celery, watermelons are a great source of potassium, even dried fruits, although they can be high in sugar are a good source of potassium. And of course, the banana we all know about that. But lower sugar sources of potassium you’d find in green foods, other leafy vegetables, in fact, every vegetable has a bunch of potassium and even the sodium it has would be called organically bound sodium.

Magnesium is found in green foods, certain nuts, and seeds, and you can find magnesium in some animal products. Also, of course, you can get potassium and magnesium in high-quality nutritional supplements, but I believe diet is the best way to go. So again, if you’re dealing with fatigue think of electrolytes as energy, they are electrifying your body in a good way because our body is electric, and we run on that electrical current. So get your potassium and magnesium up, it will help flush excess sodium out of the system, magnesium is great for your joints, it’s great for your heart and it’s great for your brain.

Bone Broth

Most people with chronic fatigue syndrome and or fibromyalgia, are in need of a collagen boost. The amino acids, proline, and glycine are great for your connective tissue, also great for your liver.

Another issue with chronic fatigue is that typically there are low levels of glutathione which is the body’s master antioxidant. There’s been a recent study that I absolutely loved, that said dairy with A1 beta casein or the devil in the milk, lower the body’s glutathione levels, whereas, dairy from milk that contained only A2 beta casein, that would be goat milk, sheep milk or cow’s milk that was specifically created or the cows were bred to produce only A2 which is found in mother’s milk, there was an increase in glutathione.

Bone broth and its glycine helps to create glutathione in the body. Also, it has glucosamine chondroitin hyaluronic acid which helps you reduce inflammation. It is also really soothing to the gut, almost everyone I’ve met with chronic fatigue has a gut issue. So consume one to three servings of bone broth a day, make it yourself. Or, consume a powdered bone broth protein each and every day and you will love the results.

Build peace and relax

I have found in my coaching people back to health that when you’re dealing with chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia, it often stems from either toxic exposure or traumatic experience. I believe that if you will begin to cultivate peace, if you begin to claim some promises, and I claim the promises of God, that you are energized, you are filled with joy, read scripture out loud, find a time to go outside and walk barefoot if you’re near an ocean do it on the beach. Otherwise, do it in the grass at a park, that will lower cortisol levels and help you with peace. Do things that you enjoy.

People with chronic fatigue are miserable oftentimes, and they just don’t know exactly why. So building peace and allowing your body to relax, fighting stress probably is the number one recommendation to overcome chronic fatigue.

Quick Recap

Eliminate food sensitivities, that is something that you can easily do if you’re willing to do it. Remember, start with gluten and dairy which is a great help for your gut and for your antioxidant levels.

Increase your B complex vitamins through diet and supplementation with an organic fermented B vitamin, you want to increase the electrolytes, potassium, and magnesium found in vegetables, fruits, and bone broth.

Consuming bone broth helps build electrolytes, boost your immune system and can help reduce inflammation. Get it each and every day.

Build peace and relax, Find your center. Whether it’s listening to worship music, maybe it’s listening to classical music, maybe it is as I mentioned, walking outside in the grass or on the beach. This is powerful and it’s a way to reduce cortisol, reduce stress, and transform your health.
