Food Allergies, Gluten Sensitivity & Fatigue
Gluten, Wheat Sensitivity, Food Allergies and Celiac Disease
Another problem when dealing with parasites are sensitivities that affect the lining of the gut. This includes gluten, gliadin, food allergies and celiac disease. These conditions can cause inflammation of the gut lining. When the gut lining is inflamed parasites can burrow deep inside making it very difficult to find and kill them.
When there are sensitivities involved it may be necessary to first resolve the inflammatory process before killing the parasites. Alternatively working on both at once is also a useful approach, that is removing the irritants such as allergens or wheat and also killing the parasites. The trick here is that there may once again be layers of parasites due to the inflammation and so repeated parasite cleanse will be often be necessary. Some clinicians have found an average of three layers of parasites.
The Many Causes of Fatigue
Fatigue can have many causes. Overcoming fatigue, on a consistent basis requires that the underlying causes be understood and addressed. Below you will find the most common causes of fatigue. Generally when these areas are addressed energy levels come up and the feelings of vitality and well being increase.
In our clinic we ask a number of questions on every visit to asses the overall subjective experience of health and well being. These questions are on a scale of 1-10 with 7 being what we consider good health. Many of our patients come to us because their subjective experience of energy and vitality is below 7, often below 4.
If your energy levels are below 7/10 or if you want to raise your energy levels even higher then you may want to consider the following areas. The list is not exhaustive but does cover the vast majority of cases.
- Adrenal Fatigue & Adrenal Exhaustion
- Blood Sugar Imbalances
- Food Allergies and Gluten Sensitivity
- Heavy Metals
- Hormone Depletion
- Mitochondrial Dysregulation
- Neurotransmitter Exhaustion
- Vitamin/Mineral/Fatty Acid/Amino Acid Deficiencies
- Yeast and Fungus Infections
