Athletes and people that have occupations that require a great deal of physical activity such as firefighters often suffer from chronic fatigue. Once the infections are treated, chronic fatigue usually disappears. Dehydration can also be a cause of chronic fatigue with many people not paying attention to their daily water intake, with chronic fatigue being one of the results. Symptoms of fatigue include the following:
• Weakness, lack of energy, tiredness, exhaustion • Passing out or feeling as if you are going to pass out • Palpitations (feeling your heart beating) • Reduced immune system function • Blurry vision
• Short term memory problems • Poor concentration • Hallucinations
Dietary recommendations: -
• Eat less: -Avoid alcohol, caffeine and tobacco, as these substances are highly toxic to the adrenal and other glands. Stay away from fats, fried foods, ham, pork, highly processed foods, red meats, soft drinks, sugar and white flour. These foods put unnecessary stress on the adrenals.
• Eat more: - Consume plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables - particularly green, leafy ones. Brown rice, legumes, olive and safflower oils, nuts, seeds, wheat germ and whole grains are healthy additions to the diet. Eat deep water fish such as salmon and tuna - at least 3 times a week.
