One of the biggest symptoms experienced by a lot of people in clinic is FATIGUE. There are many causes of fatigue and it can vary from a general tiredness to an extreme chronic exhaustion.
One of the biggest causes of fatigue is YEAST and this is a common bug that exists in all of us but can overpopulate because of weakened adrenals, poor eating and maldigestion and a suppressed immune system together with nutritional deficiencies.
People have generally normal blood tests with sufficient iron, sometimes low in Vitamin D, but not enough reason why they are feeling so tired.
I use organic acids test which is a simple method of analysing the efficiency of patient’s metabolic processes. The person’s cellular health can be measured including intestinal dysbiosis and yeast (which always comes up high with fatigue), energy production, nutrient cofactor requirements and neurotransmitter metabolism.
By evaluating these levels and pinpointing the metabolic dysfunctions occurring at the cellular level, a comprehensive strategy can be tailor – made for each individual patient.
The test is done with a urine sample and turnaround time for results is 4 weeks.
By removing the yeast using herbal antibiotics, which takes about 3-6 weeks, removing offending foods, reinoculating the gut with correct bacteria and strengthening the digestive and immune systems, a chronic case of fatigue is usually remedied.
People would comment on the how their foggy head had gone, how they have more energy, their aches and pains have gone, how they sleep better and how clear their skin looks. Not to mention they have lost excess weight which they also struggle to lose.
