Chronic Fatigue ~ A Body Mind Perspective

By Michael Schwartz

I am of the belief that chronic fatigue, hypoglycemia and fibromyalgia are all interrelated. Hypoglycemia is so often misdiagnosed and not dealt with from a proper point of nutrition, it often ends up escalating into chronic fatigue.

Also, whenever there is hypoglycemia, there will almost always be Candida.  In this case, we are talking about an infestation in the intestinal tract.

Candida crowds out and may even diminish probiotics, the friendly bacteria that manufacture B vitamins.  Probiotics are Essential to healthy flora in the intestinal tract and vitamins are integral for energy production within the body.  Dwindling probiotics in the gut set the stage for the onset of chronic fatigue. …read more of Chronic Fatigue ~ A Body Mind Perspective here

Weight loss is a major topic unto itself and there are many ways to approach it. There are psychological concerns as well as physiological, glandular effects at work in most everyone with weight issues.

Levels of stress can affect weight as well. Stress depletes calcium, which disrupts the relationship between potassium and sodium and can result in five to fifteen pounds immediate weight gain through water retention.

Successful weight loss requires true desire and commitment. This leads to discipline, which in turn leads to success. The most difficult aspect of weight loss is changing the diet. Some things are hard to give up, even when we know they are detrimental to our health, primarily because of the myriad of emotional attachments and associations that we all have with food.  …read more of Weight Loss … Supplements and Symbology here

In my NutritionFacts.org videos, Golden glow and Produce, not pills to increase physical attractiveness, I review new research suggesting that consuming dark green leafy vegetables will improve healthy appearance of Caucasians,* because of the deposit of carotenoids in the skin.

Taking those same phytonutrients in pill form, however doesn’t work. We should strive to get most of our nutrients from plants, not pills. The balance of scientific evidence suggests that the healthiest way to eat is a vitamin B12-fortified diet of whole plant foods.

For optimum nutrition, we should be sure to include in our daily diet not only an array of whole grains, beans, nuts, seeds, fruit, and as many vegetables as we can eat, but also specifically dark green leafy vegetables, berries, and white (or green) tea.

Attention should also be paid to these nutrients: …read more of Optimum Nutrition here

If you’ve read my prior posts, you know that I recommend supplements and herbs for a wide range of uses, from maintaining strong bones, to staying healthy during the winter.

So, you may have been baffled by some recent reports on whether supplements are actually good for us.  …read more of Should you take supplements? The ones you shouldn’t miss. here
