Hacks for Tired People
Tips from Self-Directed Personal Assistant Services
Often times, people with disabilities deal with chronic fatigue. Fatigue is not something someone can see like a broken ankle. It’s something people have to take your word for.
If you have experience with fatigue, you can try to find the underlying cause and work with diet and exercise to help you produce energy. Sometimes ending a tedious job or relationship can help you have more energy. And there are some supplements you can try that may boost your energy levels.
CoQ10 – this is important for muscle contractions.
Thyroid – Get this checked with a simple blood test. Low levels of thyroid hormone can cause mental and physical fatigue.
Trimethylglycine (TMG) – It’s a methyl donor that spawns other energy producing nutrients.
Hormones – Consider getting your hormone levels checked. Reduced estrogen can cause fatigue. And a doctor can prescribe replacement therapy.
Iron – One of the first deficiencies you can check that brings on fatigue. Anemia can make you tired and dizzy and is very easy to treat.
Creatine – Creatine leads to more adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and supports muscle health.
Greens – Eating more healthy super-foods and super fruits can improve mental clarity and physical stamina. It can even help with weight loss. Consider eating them for breakfast for a good start to your day.
Zinc – New research suggests that zinc enhances cellular energy reserves.
In short, the best way to reclaim energy if you have digestive issues is to start with your diet. Visit with your qualified practitioner for more suggestions.
