Fatigue and Insomnia
(The following is a quoted excerpt, pages 98 to 102, from the Book The Great Health Heist © by Paul Rosen J.D.,L.Ac. Published by Warren Publishing, Inc.)
Few maladies are as frustrating as the battle between fatigue and insomnia. This "circle of strife" feeds upon itself daily, making it harder to treat and more frustrating by degrees. Sleep becomes like the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow that is always just out of reach. As a result, it takes on an almost mythical presence; it consumes us and makes obtaining the sleep we need so badly even harder.
If you have ever suffered from insomnia, you know that it can be a horrific experience. Like a snowball getting bigger and bigger as it rolls downhill, the effects of insomnia combine throughout the days, the weeks, and even the months to create dozens of offshoot symptoms that make life miserable. Some of these include irritability, anxiety, diminishing physical performance and, not surprisingly, fatigue.
"EW" experienced this dreadful combination of insomnia plus fatigue recently and was kind enough to share his success story with us:
"I was tired through the day and had difficulty sleeping [insomnia]. I was concerned with my excess weight and not getting the results I was hoping for from cutting calories and exercise. [Following my Nutrition Response TestingSM evaluation], I am learning what types of food I should be eating and can tell now when I have eaten something I shouldn't have. I sleep soundly at night and have a lot more energy throughout the day. In fact, I am working 50 to 60 hours a week and I have been able to stay energized throughout the long way. Everyone around me is constantly wondering how I have the energy to work these long hours and many of these people complain of their own lack of energy. Guess what? I am starting to refer my family and friends [to your clinic]!”
"LS" expressed the same type of frustration and ennui when she wrote me saying, "I felt like I needed to do something different. I didn't know what, but I needed to do something."
"LS" was fortunate that she had caring friends in the know. She explains:
"When I came to visit, my son, my daughter-in-law and my daughter Cindy convinced me to [be evaluated using Nutrition Response Testing]. I lacked the energy I had before three surgeries in my knee and a staph infection. I found I truly needed a nap. I felt old. After less than a week of being on the nutrition program, I have noticed an increase in my endurance and. strength. No more naps. I don't feel tired. I am also sleeping better at night. I haven't taken a stool softener either, no problem with hard stools. I am very pleased with these results, can't wait to see more. "
Our final anecdote reveals how "AD" overcame both his insomnia and subsequent fatigue following his program designed using Nutrition Response Testing.
"My energy was low," explains "AD" (like many of my patients). "I had a sluggish feeling. My sleep was often interrupted by general feelings of anxiety. My weight wasn't holding steady. My thinking wasn't very clear. I was on a mild antidepressant. Since being on the [Nutrition Response Testing] program, I have more energy. I have a generally lighter feeling. I've been off the antidepressants for about three months now. I am sleeping much better and my thinking is definitely clearer. My overall outlook is more accepting and positive. "
Don't let insomnia rule your life - or contribute to your fatigue. Seek help sooner rather than later. Experience the blissful feeling of whole-body wellness that becomes yours – forever – when you embark upon a personalized health improvement program based upon the safe, healthy and effective technology called Nutrition Response Testing.
