HOW YOUR FATIGUE IS ACTUALLY TRYING TO HELP YOU
It’s hard to portray exactly how tired you feel. In fact, tired doesn’t really cover it.
You may still manage to put one foot in front of the other. And you may even appear to others as being “fine” while you force march.
But the plug has been pulled. Your energy has been drained. Maybe you struggle to sleep on top of this, adding insult to zapped injury. Or maybe you sleep loads but the sleep doesn’t touch the sides.
It feels like your gas tank is empty.
And yet more likely and far more common, is that an emergency switch keeps getting triggered to keep you from moving. To keep you from circulating whatever your immune system has let in - a virus, bacteria, pathogen, spirochete, manmade toxins . . .
You see, fatigue is actually a survival strategy.
At it’s extreme, it can take the form of “Dauer” or “hibernation” - something that resembles suspended animation. You may still be able to work, to get through your day, even as what you do in a day becomes less and less. But metabolically, your body is employing an ancient survival strategy to keep you as still as possible until the environment is deemed safe.
. . . which is why all the supplements, adaptogens, and boosting things you’ve tried haven’t helped and maybe even made you feel worse.
But with the right strategy, addressing your body’s systems in the right order, you can put the fire out, and start clearing out the biofilms, infections, environmental toxins and debris that keeps your body flipping the switch when you over do it.
Often the energy comes back just by going through this process of clearing out what shouldn’t be there.
If you were hiking up a mountain carrying a backpack full of rocks and you started to get tired, would you drink a Red Bull? Or would you put down the back pack?
If a boulder had rolled onto your leg and you couldn’t get up, would you try drinking more coffee? Take an iron supplement? Or would you remove the boulder?
By going through the 4 Stage Process, you can work with your body instead of fighting it, learn your unique triggers, and reduce the inflammatory load that’s triggering your emergency off switch, removing the blockages to healthy energy.
