Nutrition for optimal energy
‘Having more energy’ is often high on most people’s list of goals. Fatigue and lack of energy is a common symptom of many health conditions as well as a result of stress from today’s modern living.
These days we are often subject to an almost endless number of daily stressors - including things like emotional and social stress, lack of sleep, suboptimal diets and lack of exercise.
These stressors can be taxing on the body’s energy resources. Whenever the body is stressed the adrenal glands release cortisol, a stress hormone, that allows the body to cope with stress and attempts to eliminate it.
Too frequent stress responses can leave the body devoid of energy, which can leave you feeling exhausted and fatigued. The more stressed the body becomes, the more fatigued the body can become.
How can nutritional therapy help?
Fortunately there is a lot that can be done nutritionally to support the body’s energy production. Learning strategies for life balance and making simple lifestyle changes such as getting more sleep, regular exercise and reducing stress can be very helpful in addressing fatigue-related health conditions.
Optimising nutrient intake is also key for supporting the body’s stress response and energy production. We will fine-tune your diet - making sure adequate nutrient levels are being met - and discover dietary strategies best suited for your unique goals and needs. Supplementation may also be necessary to support your programme.
Testing may be recommended in some cases to rule out nutrient deficiencies as well as other illnesses that have some of the same symptoms, such as fibromyalgia, hypothyroidism, cardiac dysfunctions, an infection, or depression.
