Feeling fatigued at various times during the day is not just
a part of life and should not be expected as normal. There are reasons
why people felt his way. Here is one:
digestive system utilizes enzymes in the food for the digestive
process. Enzyme activity in processed foods is nearly non-existent.
There are several reasons for this (preservatives, high temperature
cooking, etc.). The goal of food manufacturers is to reduce or
eliminate enzyme activity, which increases shelf life. Our bodies are
designed to use the food enzymes combined with the enzymes created in
our pancreas to digest food. Without enzymes in the food, the pancreas
overworks trying to produce enough enzymes to digest the food. Over
time the pancreas begins to weaken and becomes ineffective. The body
now does one of two things;
stomach will be filled with extra acid and the food will sit in the
stomach three or four times longer than normal. If this happens you may
feel uncomfortable several hours after you eat and may experience
- The food will go right through you.
In this case you will often feel the need to excuse yourself almost
before your finished eating. If you are lucky enough to have your food
digested after this you will get some nutritional value from your meal,
but you will feel fatigued during the process.
An even worse case is where your food only partially digests. In this
case the partially digested fats, sugars, and carbohydrates enter the
blood stream causing all sorts of problems. The partially digested
proteins cause your red blood cells to become sticky. The sticky red
blood cells clump together. This phenomena can be witnessed with a
recently developed microscope. These clumps cannot be forced through
the narrow capillary tubes. (Your body will try, causing possibly high
blood pressure.) Because the capillaries do not have adequate blood
flow, many tissue cells are being starved of oxygen and other
nutrients, while carbon dioxide and other byproducts are left behind.
This can lead to catastrophic diseases. It is thought by many that this
can lead to such disease as Alzheimer's, high blood pressure, strokes,
and the list goes on.
Partially digested sugars
and proteins have their own sets of problems. The undigested sugars are
not absorbed by the cells. The unnourished cells are not able to
produce energy, thus you will feel fatigued. The undigested proteins
are broken down by white blood cells. When the white blood cells are
too busy eating your lunch, they do not have time to fight off disease
One method to help correct this
situation is to take enzyme supplements with every meal. Most people
notice an improvement within a week.
method is to begin eating well-balanced meals, with vegetables and
Tiredness, heartburn, joint pain, and bad
breath may go away. Your stomach will be flatter, dark circles under
your eyes will gradually fade, your complexion clears up, and migraine
headaches may ease. Your blood immediately begins to clear up allowing
flow out to the ends of the capillary tubes. with improved blood flow
to you brain you will be more attentive and alert. The rest of your
body will also benefit form the improved blood flow.
