If you find that you keep asking yourself “why am I so tired?!!!” then you’re in the right place. In this episode, I’m sharing 3 common causes of low energy in women. Before we begin, I want you to know that I’ve been in your shoes. I see you, I hear you, and I’m here to help you. I’ve healed from adrenal fatigue 5x in my life, and the 3 topics I am diving into, are where I started to regain my energy. Let’d get to it.
3 Common Causes of Low Energy in Women
1- Poor Hydration
A lot of women who are dealing with low energy rely on coffee and other stimulants (usually in the form o f beverages) to keep them going. Been there done that. Unfortunately, this is a daily habit that most women don’t think twice about.
One of the most common symptoms of adrenal fatigue (and causes) is poro hydration. Now, plain water just doesn’t get the job done. I recommend adding a pinch of sea salt or our Hydration Superfood Energy to properly hydrate. You need to drink half of your body weight in ounces per day to boost energy levels!
2- Food Sensitivities
Food is a key factor why people feel so tired, especially after eating a meal. Most people have damaged guts due to an unhealthy, processed diet. There are obvious symptoms of food sensitivities like IBS, bloating, gas, constipation, diarrhea, but some can be more subtle. For example, feeling exhausted after a meal! This isn’t normal, but extremely common.
In our consulting program, we are going to be offering lab testing to uncover the ideal diet so you can stop feeling tired and start feeling rejuvenated again. For now, an elimination diet that removes common allergies like gluten, soy, and corn, can be super helpful for pinpointing the culprit for low energy.
3- Cortisol Disruption (Sleep Issues)
This may seem obvious, but do you know why you are struggling with sleep? Our bodies have a natural internal clock that loves rhythms and routine. Unfortunately, we live much differently now than our ancestors who went to bed with the moon and rose with the sun.
Blue light, among other conveniences of modern life, can disrupt the natural rhythms of our hormones and create spikes in cortisol while suppressing melatonin. Enter dysregulation and horrible sleep. The key here is to get on a sleep schedule that is as regulated as possible. Stay off your screens in the evening and try to go to bed at the same time every night.
I hope this episode has helped you understand why you have low energy, and what to do about it. Check out our Hydration Superfood Energy to hydrate properly for incredible rejuvenation and energy.
