Natural Home Cures Acai Berry For Fatigue
Fatigue refers to a feeling of tiredness or weariness. It can be temporary or chronic. Working overtime on certain occasions may cause temporary fatigue and can be remedied by adequate rest. Chronic or continuous fatigue is a serious problem that requires a comprehensive plan of treatment.
Chronic fatigue can manifest from a variety of factors; environmental, physical and, yes, even psychological. You may be a person who feels you cannot rest until everything on your 'to-do' list is done - a perfectionist who cannot relax until your work is completed no matter how tired you may be! However, the chief cause of fatigue or lack of energy is usually due to poor nutrition or malnourishment. Fatigue is an indication that the cells of the body are not getting sufficient live atoms in the food to furnish them with a constant flow of energy. The habitual use of refined foods such as white sugar, refined cereals, and white flour products as well as processed, tinned and preserved foods have a very bad effect on the system in general. 'Denatured' foods are depleted of their invaluable vitamins and minerals and thus, the inadequate diet, can lead to nervousness, tiredness, obesity and a host of other health complaints.(1) Insomnia can be life altering and leaves your body vulnerable to disease.
Certain physical conditions can cause fatigue. Anemia is a very common ailment. It is known as 'tired blood' disturbance when very little oxygen reaches the tissues and energy cannot be produced normally. This causes chronic tiredness and mental depression. Anemia usually results from deficiencies of iron and vitamin B12.(2)
Sleep induced by sleeping medications does not banish fatigue. They offer only temporary relief but chronic use can also lead to addiction. Intestinal parasites can rob the body of good nourishment and gorge themselves on rich red blood and leave your body physically drained of energy. Fatigue can be brought on by low blood pressure, low blood sugar, any kind of infection in the body, liver damage and a sluggish thyroid. Allergies to certain foods and medications, brought on by additives such as artificial flavors, colors and preservatives can also lead to decreased energy levels.(3)
Mental tension is one of the major causes of fatigue. A person who is tense and cannot relax - the muscles of the body are in a state of constant contraction - which causes the body to "burn" caloric energy and, in turn, lactic acid accumulates more rapidly than it can be carried to liver for conversion to body starch. Persons who are high-strung, nervous and irritable usually suffer from this type of
Nutritional measures are most vital in the treatment of fatigue. Studies reveal that people who frequently feed their bodies throughout the day with small helpings of nourishing foods will feel rejuvenated energy and be able to focus and concentrate better than those who eat only three regular-sized meals daily.(5) Meals should consist of fresh or dried fruits, fresh fruit or vegetable juices, raw vegetables or small sandwiches of whole grain bread.
Charles De Coti Marsh of London in his book 'Prescription for Energy' prescribes foods to relieve fatigue and gain energy.(6) He says, "Regenerating must begin with foods. They must be taken in their natural state. These cereals are corn seeds, wheat seeds, rye seeds, maize seeds, barley seeds and oat seeds. They must be freshly milled. In uncooked cereals, we do have one perfect food for perfect health which contains essential vitamins and energy creators." In addition to cereal seeds, Marsh recommends fresh raw nuts taken directly from the shell and root vegetables. He says, "Any seed or root vegetable that will grow again will renew human vitality."
An optimum diet should include (i) seeds, nuts, and grains, (ii) vegetables, and (iii) fruits to combat fatigue. Sprouting is an excellent way to eat seeds, beans, and grains in raw form. Sprouting increases the nutritional value of foods and many new vitamins are created or multiplied in seeds during sprouting. It's best to supplement the three health-building food groups with special protective foods such as milk, high quality cold-pressed unrefined vegetable oil and honey.
Consuming natural vitamin and mineral supplements can be effective against nutritional deficiencies.
Lack of pantothenic acid, B vitamin, in particular, leads to extreme fatigue, as deficiency of this vitamin is associated with exhaustion of the adrenal glands.(7) In fact, the entire B-complex protects nerves and increases energy by helping to nourish and regulate glands. The vegetarian foods rich in vitamin B are wheat and other whole grain cereals, green leafy vegetables, rice polishing, milk, nuts, banana, yeast, pulses, and peas.
Minerals are also important. Potassium is especially needed for protection against fatigue.(8) Raw green vegetables are rich in this mineral. Calcium is essential for relaxation and is beneficial in cases of insomnia and tension both of which can lead to fatigue.(9) Sodium and zinc are also beneficial in the treatment of fatigue.(10)
Raw vegetable juices, especially carrot juice, taken separately or in combination with juices of beets and cucumbers are highly valuable in overcoming fatigue. The formula proportions considered helpful in the combination juice of 500 ml. are carrot 300 ml. and beet and cucumber 100 ml. each.
