Why Do I Lack Energy?                                          Consider Shop With The Doc

The Medical Perspective

Is it an age thing?  Do we blindly accept our doctor’s explanation for our lack of energy when they say, “It is because you are getting old and you should expect your energy to begin to get less as you get older.  It’s a normal part of aging” Does that really make any sense?  Does it make sense that as we get older it is “normal” to have less energy?  I say “poppy-cock!”  It may be very common, but it is anything other than “normal” to develop an energy crisis as we age.  Let me explain what happens in our society and why it seems like we all develop it as we age.  And when I am done, I will offer you a solution for your newest health concern, “Lack of Energy.” 

In our clinic, many people come to the office with a vague diagnosis of “Fatigue,” “Poor Energy,” “Afternoon Tiredness,” or an “Inability to Focus.”  And yet, all of their lab tests are “normal” and many times they are either sent to the Psychiatrist/Psychologist/Therapist to discuss what they are unhappy with or what is stressing them out.  And more times than not, they will be given some level of medication to “un-plug” themselves form how they feel and give them a false sense of self.  In other words, “As long as I take this medication, I will no longer feel tired, OR I just won’t notice I feel tired.”  This doesn’t solve the problem.

The Alternative Perspective and Your Solution  

In our clinic, we approach health, not from a Symptom Perspective, with symptoms being the outcome of a problem.  Rather we approach health from a Wellness Perspective, where we focus on the cause of a problem to enable you to feel well and have an abundance of energy.  We do this the following way.

The 3 Steps Our Wellness Approach focuses on are:

1)      Reducing the destructive effects of stress

2)      Reducing Chemical Toxicity

3)      Removing Undetected Neurological Damage

 1) Reducing the destructive effects of stress

In today’s fast-paced environment, stress is a fact of life.  Prolonged stress is harmful, however, because of its effect on the stress glands called the adrenal glands.

The adrenal glands produce hormones that help to handle physical and emotional stress.  In situations of chronic stress, these hormones can cause damage and the adrenal glands can become fatigued.  This can affect the quantity of hormones that are produced.

The adrenal glands produce hormones that influence our energy, sleep, digestion, weight gain, estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, allergies, immunity, heart function, fatigue and more.  These glands can be checked and if malfunctioning, can be repaired through diet and supplements.

This is why Step 1 is:

Have your adrenal glands checked and get onto a supervised program to Improve Your Adrenal Function

2) Reducing Chemical toxicity

Another factor contributing to health problems is the pollution of our water, food and air.  Although the water and air is polluted world-wide, the American food supply contains more chemicals than most other countries.  This could be why the United States ranks 46th in life expectancy.  We are on the bottom of the list of industrial nations despite the fact Americans have more access to care, more doctors, more technology and more hospitals than any other country in the world.  And yet, we consume 80 % of all drugs prescribed in the world.  There are also 85,000 different chemicals we come in contact with each week.  And unfortunately, our FDA (Food and Drug Administration) regulates less than twenty-thousand of them.  Are we over-toxified?

So what does the body do to deal with this concern?  To defend against these chemicals, our body surrounds them in fat where they are then stored.  This keeps them from affecting vital organs and glands.  As a result we gain weight, feel fatigued, can’t focus and are more susceptible to a host of other problems.  This is one of the major reasons why Americans are so obese; too many chemicals in our food and not enough proper food ingredients necessary for healthy function.

What can a person do?  A nutritional cleansing program can help to get rid of chemical toxicity in your body.  As a result you will improve your overall health, have more energy and lose unwanted weight rapidly.

This is why Step 2 is:

Determine what supervised nutritional cleansing program you should do. Consider "The Doctor Supervised Detoxification Program." 

3) Removing Undetected Neurological Damage

Trauma starts early in childhood with the first falls a child has and progresses throughout life.  Falls, auto accidents, contact sports or work injuries, etc., can all cause trauma to the nervous system.

Although these injuries may not seem serious at first, they can cause undetected nerve damage.  Remember, nerves control all functions in your body and when damaged can cause numerous health problems, not only pain or headaches.  In fact, all unwanted health conditions have as their primary component being some degree of neurological damage.  That is what creates the basis for your symptom(s).

That is why Step 3 is:

Have your body checked for Undetected Neurological Damage 

Your Reward

With these 3 approaches: Removing Undetected Nerve Damage, eliminating the harmful effects of stress, and reducing chemical toxicity, we often get results from problems no one else has helped.

In addition, many people who have adopted our wellness care program have enjoyed a host of other benefits including:

  •          A strengthened Immune System
  •          More energy and alertness
  •          Losing unnecessary weight

  •          Have more beautiful skin

         Live pain-free…and much more
