Fatigue & Inflammation

If the body undergoes stress as it tries to cope with the release of inflammatory cytokines (proteins) in the blood, that can cause fatigue, especially when disease activity is high or low-grade inflammation remains for a long time. The pain-fatigue connection can be a vicious circle.

The Problem

Inflammation is part of the body’s immune response; without it, we can’t heal. But when it’s out of control—as in rheumatoid arthritis—it can damage the body. Plus, it’s thought to play a role in obesity, heart disease, cancer, asthma and many hundreds of other diseases.

The seeds of chronic inflammation (and a lot of other health issues) often start with the gut. Two-thirds of the body’s defenses reside in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract — yet it is often the last place practitioners look. Intestinal bloating, frequent bouts of diarrhea or constipation, gas and pain, heartburn and acid reflux are early signs of an inflamed digestive tract. It’s not surprising that your immune system first clicks into hyperdrive in your digestive tract — it was designed to eliminate viruses and bacteria in your food before they infect your body.

Foods high in sugar, red meat, processed foods, coffee & sodas for example can spur inflammation. They cause over-activity in the immune system, which can lead to joint pain, fatigue, and damage to the blood vessels.

For most people, high-carb diets with abundant gluten foods are inflammatory. And conversely we’ve seen repeatedly that well-balanced low-carb diets reduce inflammation for most people. But you will need to listen to your own body and carefully observe which foods fuel inflammation for you.

There’s also a complicated interaction between the inflammatory messengers, cytokines and prostaglandins, and insulin and glucose levels. In some cases, depending on what other stressors come into play, insulin inhibits the inflammatory agents and in other cases it fuels them. The same thing is observed with cortisol released by the adrenal glands – sometimes helpful, sometimes not. Studies are currently underway to unravel the links between obesity and type 2 diabetes and this mechanism.

Why Are There So Many Sick People?

 

  • Many people have no ‘zip.’ They are always tired and lack vitality mostly due to a poor lifestyle and stress. This is the number one complaint most people share. Therefore, their immune systems become weaker over time, making them more susceptible to disease.
  • Many people can’t follow through with their chosen health program long enough to get satisfactory results (sound familiar)? Scattered unfocused thinking causes people to run west to see a sunrise. This leads to frustration and a feeling of helplessness and/or a lack of control.
  • Many people do not have a powerful enough emotional reason to begin with and stick to a health and fitness program. Doctors everywhere pull out their hair because patients generally do not follow through with medicines and therapeutics, natural or otherwise. Unfortunately, getting healthy or conversely fearing death are not big enough motivators, long term. When folks don’t have a meaningful life purpose nor a sustaining life philosophy, they often don’t follow through either.

What Are the Major Causes of Health Problems?

 

  • ‘Zombie’ Foods, Beverages & Habits: Empty calories consisting mostly of packaged and processed food laden with chemicals, sugar and non-food items. Let’s also include habits like unnecessary drugs and tobacco smoking. Gluten, soy and corn products may also be considered ‘Zombie’ foods for many people as well as other food sensitivities suffered by many people.
  • Stasis: Not exercising. Responding to life a flat unemotional manner. Never reading or engaging in thought-provoking interesting material. Feeling dead inside.
  • Anxiety: Always feeling a chronic low level of unease in life – the ‘shoe is about to drop.’ Not sleeping. Thoughts race. Tension.
  • Hereditary Factors: Genetic factors we are born with and tend to influence our energy levels and susceptibility to dis-ease (spelled this way on purpose).
  • Toxins and Chemicals: Sustained exposure to environmental toxins.

What is Gateway One, building vitality all about?

The First Gateway is about managing your ENERGY. Optimizing overall VITALITY is crucial to mind-body health. ‘Sparkle & Stamina’ are indicative of a strong vital force in the body. That energy, force or principle that defines the living from the non-living. High energy = strong immune system.

METABOLISM: The chemical processes occurring within a living cell or organism that are necessary for the maintenance of life. In efficient metabolism some substances are broken down to yield energy for vital processes while other substances, necessary for life, are synthesized.

Vitality and metabolism can be measured.
