How Food Sensitivity Affects Fatigue or Extreme Tiredness
It’s perfectly natural to feel a little run-down sometimes. But, when even a full night’s sleep doesn’t leave you feeling refreshed, you might suffer from chronic fatigue.
- Constant sense of exhaustion
- Loss of memory or concentration
- Muscle soreness
- Unrefreshing sleep
What Causes Fatigue?
Fatigue can be caused by a number of conditions ranging from a simple lack of sleep, to heart disease, to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia.
Relationship to Food Sensitivity
While fatigue can stem from a variety of diseases, recent studies suggest that fatigue can also be a result of poor nutritional intake due to a hidden food sensitivity.
When you eat, your body digests foods into essential nutrients and amino acids that will be absorbed into the bloodstream and converted to energy that keep you active and alert. However, when you have a food sensitivity—when your body cannot properly digest the foods you eat, causing inflammation in the gut—the necessary nutrients will never be absorbed into your bloodstream. So, even if you’re eating healthful foods, your body will fail to convert the food into energy.
Getting tested for food sensitivities can help identify problem foods in your diet. Using a simple in-home blood test, you can find out exactly which foods are contributing to fatigue, inflammation, and other negative diet symptoms.
