At Natural Health Atlanta, one of the biggest symptoms we see for food sensitivities is chronic fatigue. Other symptoms of food sensitivities can include:
· Concentration issues
· Emotional issues (such as anxiety or depression)
· Weight loss or gain that cannot be explained or controlled
· Issues sleeping
Getting Tested for a Food Sensitivity
There are different types of tests that can be done to tell whether your fatigue is from what you eat or from something else. At Natural Health Atlanta, we can perform the NutraTest Food Sensitivity / Intolerance Test to see if there are foods in your diet causing your fatigue-related issues. Once we identify that food sensitivity, you can eliminate the food or foods from your diet and monitor for improvements in your energy level.
An important note: The NutraTest Food Sensitivity Test is covered under most major insurance plans.
It’s not just the actual foods you eat that cause fatigue either. The preservatives and additives in your food can cause your fatigue symptoms as well. The chemicals used in your foods are harmful to your health, even if they’re sold in the grocery store. Also, increased exposure to these preservatives and additives can make your food sensitivity build up over time, making you feel increasingly worse.
Tips for Increasing Your Energy Level
Even after you’ve identified a food sensitivity, you need to make sure there are no other things in your life causing your fatigue symptoms. Always devote at least six - eight hours to sleep every night. Avoid over-consuming caffeinated beverages (such as soda or coffee), because these can actually lead to fatigue. Eat a well-balanced diet and exercise at least two to three times per week. Lack of physical activity can make your body tire more easily, which is confused for chronic fatigue.
