Rarely Discussed, But Typical Reasons You Struggle with Fatigue

Transcription: Typical Reasons for Fatigue

Hi, Dr. Arland Hill, sitting out here on a beautiful sunny day with a lot of energy in the spring air. However, it’s pretty hard to appreciate this, even in the most pristine environments, if you’re feeling fatigued and constantly dealing with that. So what I want to do today is I want to share with you some of the rarely discussed, but typical reasons for fatigue. So let me run through a couple of these with you to give you a whole new perspective on fatigue, and a couple of ideas and options that you can pursue to gain some clarity and some energy.

Your Compost Pile Options- Scaling Size to Meet Your Needs

 

Transcription:

Hi, everyone. Dr. Arland Hill here with you and I wanted to review a couple of compost pile options for you. I like to think about the compost pile as multivitamins for your ground and soil that you’re going to be planting in.  It provides a ton of nutrients that you’re just not going to be able to find elsewhere, specifically one that is very well missing from a lot of different options out there is carbon. When you compost, you’re able to put organic material, carbon, back into your soil. Humus is going to be added back to the soil.

H. pylori Infection – Hidden Cause of Your Fatigue

 

Transcription:

Hey guys. Dr. Arland Hill here with you, and I’m here with my little friend, Piper. Not long ago, this little lady had an infection, which got me thinking about you and what you might need to know regarding fatigue and infections. I wanted to share with you a possible infection that is not generally talked about very often as it relates to fatigue, but can absolutely be a big causative factor.

The infection I’m talking about is H. pylori, also known as Helicobacter pylori, but H. pylori as it’s more commonly termed, is a bacteria in the stomach. Now, here’s what’s interesting about H. pylori.  We all have it.  So, how is it an infection and how is it actually causing a problem for you and possibly being a cause of your fatigue? Well, H. pylori has the potential to become infectious, meaning that it can become a problematic organism. It can start to overgrow in number and actually begin to cause some problems. One of the more common problems that it causes is disrupting some of the cells and architecture in the stomach.

B12 Vitamins Causing Fatigue – Here’s Why

 

Transcription:

Has taking B12, or a multi vitamin Hi, I’m Dr. Arland Hill, and I wanted to give you some insight into why that might be happening, because as most people like to take B12, they’re generally doing it for energy. They’re not taking B12 because they desire to feel more fatigue, they’re taking it for the exact opposite reason of looking to be more energetic.

But, you end up with a paradoxical type of reaction, completely counterintuitive of what you thought you were going to have, and you want to know why. And the reason you want to know why is because it gives you great insight into how you may be able to actually end up beating your fatigue.

Should I Take a Probiotic or Prebiotic?

Should I take a probiotic or prebiotic?  Answering this question was fairly easy when probiotics were the only option to choose from.  Any symptoms that you had low probiotics, whether inconvenient excess gas or a severe autoimmune condition, meant you applied the “add and subtract” theory.  You know what I am talking about.  If you are low you add more with a supplement.  But I want to pose a different thought process for you.  Is adding a probiotic really enough?

Adrenal Fatigue Patient, Never Again

I will never see an adrenal fatigue patient again.  I am done.  After 15 years, I am not going to do it anymore.  You will not convince me different.  All the way from adrenal fatigue being a minimal inconvenience to it crippling someone’s life, I have seen it all.  But no matter how simple or how complex the case, it is time to move away from adrenal fatigue.  Now, I am not shunning anyone that deals with adrenal fatigue.  I am simply saying that I am taking a stance to move forward.  But why you ask?

Toxic Fatigue – The New Energy Thief

Toxic fatigue!  Do you know what it is?   How do you get it?  Can it be resolved?  Two words can generate a lot of questions quickly.  Toxic fatigue is a real concern.  But I am noticing that too few professionals are talking about it.  Don’t get me wrong, some well informed champions of health are with me in trying to make you aware of this hidden cause of fatigue.  However, as loud as our voices are, they are no match for the “purveyors of poison”.  You are being assaulted with toxins daily.  Yes, I said daily!

Extreme Fatigue – Amazing Evidence Says Functional Medicine Can Permanently Help

Unrelenting fatigue, even extreme fatigue, seems to affect us all at times.  I bet you don’t find it difficult to think of the last bout you had.  But let me ask you something.  Is your fatigue becoming less common or more common?  More common right.  Okay, since we agree on that, do you see your fatigue getting better in the near future or worse?  We both know the answer is worse.  But before you write me off for taking negative tone to the start our conversation, stick around.  I have a a lot of positive to share.

I see fatigue as one of the most frustrating symptoms a person can have.  It is linked to everything and nothing all at the same time.  Talk about confusion.  Fatigue is associated with literally almost every medical condition you can think of.  However, most people dealing with fatigue, don’t have a medical condition.  If you ask your doctor to look deeper into the cause of your fatigue, they don’t find anything and say it’s nothing to worry about.  Still, no answers concerning your fatigue.  Where does it end?

Bloating and Gas: Is Family the Cause?

We have all dealt with uncomfortable bloating and gas.  Let’s be real.  You have probably even been embarrassed by it once or twice, or even more.  We have all been there.  The occasional bloating and gas is not ideal, but it is not exactly abnormal either.  You eat something you shouldn’t have or you encounter a stomach bug are possible causes.  For the most part though these tend to pass.  Then what is abnormal?

Abnormal bloating and gas is you dealing with this every day for an ongoing period of time.  That is not good.  In fact, it is a big red flag.  If this is you, chances are you and Dr. Google have probably already formed a doctor-patient relationship.  I will tell you a little secret.  I actually was curious and asked Dr. Google myself what causes these symptoms.  The good “Doc” gave me a couple of resources (aka. search engine results), all of which seemed to say the same thing.  Yet, I noticed there was one cause that seemed to left out of all of these resources.

Allergy or Sensitivity, Maybe Neither. Which Do you Have?

I have found some topics to be far more confusing than they should be when talking to my patients.  There is no better example of this than deciphering an allergy or sensitivity.  The lack of understanding I have come to understand has nothing to do with the person I am trying to educate.  Instead, it is related to misinformation they have received.  In short, they have been told their reactions are either an allergy, or nothing.  But there has to be more.  How can the extremely complex immune system not be reacting if you are experiencing symptoms?

This conversation does not have to be be complicated.  I have two goals in sharing the following information, both of which benefit you.

  1. Make the complexity of the immune system so easy a kid could understand it.
  2. Show you why you are far more likely to have a sensitivity than an allergy.
