What Does Fatigue Really Look Like?

There are two things I see on a regular basis that have become so normalized, they’re often overlooked: fatigue and stress. Everybody talks about being stressed out and tired, to the point where it’s become “normal.” What I’d like people to understand is that it’s not normal, nor is it healthy, just because it’s so common. Whatever is going on under the surface is contributing to this debilitating fatigue.

What Is Fatigue?

Fatigue is not something we need to accept as a fact of life; there are things we can do about it. Let’s start with a basic understanding of what fatigue looks like for people who experience it.

Permanent Jet Lag

People describe fatigue as akin to permanent jet lag, where you’re exhausted and experiencing brain fog. You might have increased sugar cravings. If you feel like you have chronic and permanent jet lag, this is not normal, especially when you’re not traveling.

Like Walking In Sand

People also describe fatigue like walking in really deep sand. Your legs might feel extremely heavy, like lead. It’s as though your body cannot go, and you can’t get your legs to work.

Like Having Anchors on The Limbs

People also describe fatigue like they are living with anchors tied to their limbs. Some may attribute this to being overweight, so they go and exercise, or they try to reduce their calories to unhealthy levels.

Like Having an Uncharged Battery

I think of fatigue as never having your battery fully charged. You feel sluggish and only have brief periods of energy — say, when you’re excited about an upcoming event or holiday.

Common Triggers for Fatigue

Thyroid Issues

Thyroid disease is a common cause of fatigue. Often, it’s Hashimoto’s or hypothyroidism, and a smaller amount of time it is due to thyroid cancer and the removal of the thyroid gland. In these cases, it’s common for people to struggle with fatigue until they get leveled out and optimized on their medications.


In other instances, fatigue can be a side effect of medications prescribed for anxiety, depression, migraines, blood pressure, or blood sugar. If that’s the case, you could look at whether it’s possible to get on a different medication with fewer side effects. I also recommend looking closely at the root causes of the condition you’re taking the medication for.


Poor diet can lead to functional nutritional deficiencies at the cellular level. There are nutrients that are specific to fueling the batteries in every cell that we have in our body, called the mitochondria. And when you are not getting proper nutrition and eating mostly packaged and processed foods, there’s no way you’ll be able to fuel your body to fight the fatigue.

That is where I come in and help you boost up your nutrients so that your cells get the fuel they need. You need to put the right gas into the cellular “gas tank,” not synthetic garbage that makes you feel lethargic. With my specific guidance, you can enhance what you’re already doing instead of throwing your hands in the air and giving up.

Movement or Lack Thereof

Another trigger can be both too much or too little movement. Sometimes people’s response to feeling tired is to work out harder. However, if you’re fueling your body inefficiently and you’re exercising way too much or too intensely, that’s the perfect storm for feeling fatigued.

Lack of movement can be equally problematic. If you’re not doing anything and you truly are lying on the couch watching Netflix and eating snacks, that is not going to help your fatigue either. Try a walk around the block or even sitting in your yard and being outside in nature. Start somewhere and do it consistently, and it will help with the fatigue.


Another trigger for fatigue is stress. Our bodies can only take so much stress, and we put our bodies through the wringer. We work too much. We don’t sleep enough. We eat like crap. We drink too much alcohol. We worry. Whatever it might be. There are so many things that we do, and our bodies are miraculous in that they keep us upright even though we deal with stress daily and don’t take time to reduce stress.

Do your body a favor and look at what you can do to give yourself even five-minute breaks throughout the day. Get out in the sunshine and walk in nature. Take a few minutes to meditate. Your fatigue will improve if you make a conscious effort to manage stress.


There are many more things you can do to improve fatigue, including looking at gut health, allergies, hydration, hormones, sleep, and more. If your doctor is dismissing your symptoms as simply a sign of getting older, you don’t need to accept that diagnosis. Start with some of the quick tips above and see if your fatigue improves.

If your symptoms persist or you have debilitating fatigue, then you might need more extreme measures. You can find a lot more answers and guidance by joining the All-Year Resolution membership, which gives you monthly support to help you improve your overall health and wellness. It’s only $47 a month currently, but it won’t stay that way forever. Get in now while I’m offering this introductory special, and you can start taking steps to overcoming your fatigue right away.

A Real Talk About YOUR Health

Okay, let’s have a real, heart to heart talk this week. I spoke with someone the other day that had been seeking out help for her symptoms:

  • Anxiety: One of the big ones was anxiety,
  • Mental Health: Depression was another major symptom.
  • Gut Health: She has horrible, horrible gut health.
  • Pain And Fatigue: She’s tired, has aches and pains and swollen joints.
  • Inability to Lose Weight. She can’t lose weight no matter what she does.

As we talked on the phone. I gave her hope. She was excited, and then she got a migraine which stopped her in her tracks for a while and she couldn’t really move forward with my 1:1 program. So, I instead offered her my All-Year Resolution Support for $47 a month, which is an amazing program, however, if you want to take your nutrition and health to the next level and do a really deep dive onto the one-on-one work we do, that’s not where you’re gonna get it. I’m talking about testing, vitamin and mineral assessment, etc., which will help explain why you feel the way you do.

The Client’s Frustration

While I did offer her my $47/mo. program – mainly due to her hesitancy in having to see yet another practitioner – as she had seen many different practitioners for many different reasons. Over the course of 15 years, she had seen over eight different practitioners and yet to this day, she still feels like absolute garbage. She ultimately decided to sign up to my 1:1 program with me.

Here Comes the Anger

So, we worked on our first deep dive, our one-on-one to look into testing and to look into what is really going on at the root of her problems.

As part of my 1:1 program, I have a very extensive questionnaire that a client will have to go through and then we discuss all answers. After discussing them in detail, I ask more questions. I get super nosy. I dig deep! Remember when I initially said that one of her major symptoms was anxiety and poor gut health? As I write this, it just really angers me. I learned that her daily routine – you know, how people have a cup of coffee every morning? – well, she was having a cup of MiraLax every morning for the last, I don’t even know how many years. I immediately raised the red flag, mind blown that no one in all of this time has ever said to her:

“Hmm, you’ve taken MiraLax for this long and you have anxiety, and you have really poor, shitty gut health, no pun intended…”

If you struggle to be regular, there’s other things you can do than to take polyethylene glycol in a powder form every single day of your life! What are these practitioners thinking? How did it take me, the eighth practitioner to work with this person to have the light bulb go on and say:

“That’s not it! That’s not what you need to do! We’re gonna do something different, and I can help you.”

If that sounds like you, and if you’re frustrated and annoyed and just frankly pissed off with the way you’ve been treated by other practitioners with your health, sign up for a Free Call, join my Health Reset Membership, my All-Year Resolution Membership, or join me 1:1.

I can help you; I promise!

Doing All The Right Things But Still Feeling Fatigued?

Women’s hormones play a crucial role in overall health and wellness. Knowing your hormone levels and getting them optimized can have significant benefits for everything from energy, mood, and weight to sleep, fertility, and libido. In this post, we’ll discuss why it’s important to know your hormone levels, what happens when your female hormones are off balance, and what happens when you get them optimized. Let’s dive in!

Doing All the Right Things but Still Feeling Off?

Do you still feel tired? Are you not losing the weight? Are you not even losing inches? If this sounds like you, it sounds like you’re in the same situation as a lot of people that I’m working with right now. They too are not feeling very energetic right now. So, what you probably haven’t done is that you haven’t optimized your hormones.

Why You Should Know Your Hormone Levels

Regularly monitoring your hormone levels is an important part of maintaining good physical and mental health. As women age, hormonal imbalances can become more common due to lifestyle factors such as stress or diet that can cause shifts in estrogen and progesterone levels. Regular hormone testing can help you identify if these imbalances are present and provide the opportunity to take preventative steps before any issues worsen.

What Happens When Your Female Hormones Are Off-Balance

When female hormones such as estrogen and progesterone become unbalanced, many physical and emotional symptoms may arise. Common symptoms of hormonal imbalance include mood swings, irregular or heavy periods, acne, weight gain or difficulty losing weight, fatigue, headaches or migraines, low libido, night sweats, anxiety and depression. If left untreated these symptoms can get worse over time and lead to more serious health problems down the road.

What Happens When Your Hormones Are Optimized

Balancing your hormones can have a positive impact on many different aspects of your health. When hormone levels are optimized, you may experience improved energy, better mood and sleep, regular menstrual cycles, less acne or skin issues, weight loss or easier weight management, heightened libido, and reduced anxiety and depression. Additionally, balanced hormones can help with fertility and reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease and certain cancers.

Ultimately knowing your hormone levels is essential for supporting healthy functioning both now and in the future. If you’re interested in finding out more about how to get optimized contact me in the bio for personalized advice!

Walk Every Morning To Boost Your Energy

Walking is one of the most accessible and simplest forms of exercise available, and it can be surprisingly effective at increasing energy levels. Not only does walking increase your heart rate, which pumps more oxygen to your cells and boosts metabolism, but it also helps regulate hormones like serotonin and endorphins that are associated with happiness and enhanced energy. Furthermore, incorporating a regular routine such as a morning walk into your daily lifestyle can help break monotony or boredom and recharge your batteries throughout the day. Here are some tips on how to maximize the benefits gained from walking in order to boost your energy levels.

Why Walking Increases Your Energy

The most obvious benefit of walking is that it increases your heart rate and gets oxygen flowing to cells throughout the body, which in turn helps to boost metabolism. This helps to break down foods more efficiently and use them as fuel for energy. Additionally, walking can release endorphins and other hormones associated with happiness and improved moods, leading to enhanced feelings of vitality. Finally, studies have shown that outdoor walks in nature are especially beneficial due to their calming effects, providing a sense of sanctuary from everyday stressors.

Why Walking in the Mornings Can Increase Your Energy Levels

Early morning walks are an excellent way to jump-start your day and get going with a burst of energy. As the sun rises, your body is naturally stimulated by endorphins and hormones associated with happiness and energy release. Furthermore, walking in nature can help to bring balance to the mind, clear mental clutter caused by stress, and put you on track for a productive day ahead.

Start with a 30-Day Challenge

If you’re not sure if daily walks can really boost your energy levels or not, why not give it a try? Try taking 10–15-minute early morning walks each day for at least 30 days and see how you feel after that time period has passed. After such a short amount of time, you should have some sort of indication as to whether this activity is beneficial or not.

General Tips

First, set aside a specific time each morning to take your walk and make sure you stick with it. This will help to ingrain the activity into your daily routine and increase your chances of success. Second, remember that walking doesn’t have to be boring; try incorporating activities such as listening to music or podcasts, play games like “I Spy” with friends or family members, or even take a book along for some light reading material. Lastly, don’t forget to warm up before your walks in order to prevent any injuries from occurring.

Overall, walking is an easy and accessible way to boost energy levels throughout the day. Incorporating this activity into your daily routine in the form of a morning walk can be especially beneficial, providing clear mental clarity and a sense of balance. Additionally, it can help to release endorphins and other hormones associated with happiness and energy boosts. Try out the tips provided here to make the most out of your walks and get started on recharging your batteries today!

Tired And Depressed?

Vitamin B6 is an important nutrient for our bodies. It helps with the production of energy and also aids in the production of serotonin, which is a brain chemical that helps regulate our mood. A lack of vitamin B6 can lead to fatigue and tiredness, as well as feelings of depression.

There are a few different ways that you can get vitamin B6 into your system. One way is through foods that are rich in the vitamin.

Best Foods That Contain Essential Levels of Vitamin B6

  • Chicken: Chicken is a good source of protein and also contains vitamin B6.
  • Eggs: Eggs are another excellent source of protein and also contain vitamin B6.
  • Fish: Fish, such as tuna and salmon, are a great source of vitamin B6.
  • Beans: Beans, such as black beans and kidney beans, are a good source of the vitamin.
  • Nuts: Nuts, such as almonds and peanuts, are a good source of vitamin B6.
  • Whole grains: Whole grains, such as oats and wheat, contain vitamin B6.
  • Bananas: Bananas are a good source of the vitamin.

If you are not getting enough vitamin B6 in your diet, you may want to consider taking a supplement. Vitamin B6 supplements are available in both pill and liquid form. The recommended daily dose of vitamin B6 is 2 mg for adults. However, if you are pregnant or breast-feeding, the recommended dose is 2.8 mg. If you have any medical conditions that may impact your ability to absorb vitamin B6, your healthcare provider may recommend a higher dose.

While generally considered safe. However, taking too much vitamin B6 can lead to nerve damage. If you take more than 100 mg of vitamin B6 per day, you may start to experience tingling and numbness in your hands and feet. If you experience these symptoms, stop taking the supplement and talk to your nutritionist or healthcare professional.

Vitamin B6 is essential for our mood and energy levels. It is involved in the production of brain chemicals like serotonin and melatonin, which regulate our sleep and wake cycles. Without enough B6, we can become fatigue and depressed.
