Fatigue Symptom Checklist – Do Any of These Symptoms Apply to You?

Fatigue Symptom Checklist – Do Any of These Symptoms Apply to You?

People who are tired a lot are always asking me about making a chronic fatigue symptom checklist, and honestly I’ve gotten so many requests for one that I’m simply going to have to comply. For those of you who may be experiencing real, continuous fatigue for the first time let me introduce you to a new term: chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). This illness is being diagnosed more and more frequently in the United States. Sadly this debilitating condition often goes mis-diagnosed for years or even decades due to its relatively common symptoms. Only a trained physician with a long and carefully recorded patient history has any real chance at making a proper assessment of a patient with this condition.

What common symptoms might I be talking about? Well that’s where this chronic fatigue symptom checklist I’m supposed to put together for you should answer some questions. When you’ve had a chance to look at the chronic fatigue symptom checklist you’d be well advised to think about how the symptoms on it relate not only to your present feeling of general tired-ness, but also your longer-term history of illness and general activity level. Think about how your life has played out relative to your peers. Do they have less frequent occurrences of the symptoms on the chronic fatigue symptom checklist? Without further adieu, here are some of the symptoms associated with CFS.

Potential Symptoms May Include:

Extreme tiredness without known cause

Reduced productivity and or desire to ‘live life fully’

Consistent sore or irritated throat

Short term memory problems

Joint and or muscle pain without cause

Waking up after sleep feeling more tired than you went to bed

Constant low grade fever and/or headaches…

Law of Attraction & Journey Work Helping Betty With Chronic Fatigue & Pain

Law of Attraction & Journey Work Helping Betty With Chronic Fatigue & Pain

Betty is a woman in her late forties. She has suffered from clinical depression, alcohol and drug addictions, an eating disorder and chronic pain with fatigue. She has been suffering for over 12 years now. She was sexually abused several times as a child and she knew that this was the root cause of the distress that was happening.

Betty has been highly motivated to feel better and get well. She has tried many things and it was not until Journey work did she finally get permanent results. What is Journey work? Journey work is a revolutionary, yet simple, set of skills, that helps a person release old past issues that are affecting a persons health and well-being in the present. You can read more about Journey work on the site below.

Chronic pain and fatigue is rampant. It is a name used to define a set of symptoms that affect a persons well being. It robs you of your life energy and quality of life.

Betty experienced about 6 Journey sessions. These were a combination of the physical, the emotional and the designer Journey processes. The last Journey process with Betty was a combination emotional / pain control.

After these six processes, Betty reports huge shifts in her health. She said her depression has gone from 10 day stints to 10 minute intervals. She is a trained herbalist and was not seeing any way to practice her work because of her difficulties and energy levels. She now is hopeful and optimistic. She has cleared major traumas from her body. The chronic fatigue would not even be her diagnosis now.

After the pain control /emotional process, she reported have incredible pain reduction and was enormously relieved.

All of the advanced skills often used in Journey work, were used with Betty. As well, she was able to experience the Abundance process. Betty has been financially poor her whole adult life, living in worry about money from month to month. In the Abundance process, she was helped to clear up where her poverty mentality first began. Then it was possible to teach her how to think in the present about her financial well-being.

It is her constant attention to her financial distress that keeps her in this place. And so the work is to, ‘yes’ clean up the past but also to learn how to think in the present. Each thought is creating her reality and so it was brought to her attention how she was feeling and thinking in the present moment. This is really the teaching of the law of attraction, the most powerful law in the universe, that was presented. What you think about and feel about, you bring forth into your reality.

Betty will continue working until she feels she can take this work and do it with herself. Betty has been so moved by her own results, she has begun working with her friends using the Journey processes.

I am thrilled to hear this because this is something you can teach, so that others are empowered to create wonderful lives for themselves. We are the creators of our own realities. When we realize that we are this powerful, it is well worth putting thought and time into learning about this most powerful law in the universe, The Law of Attraction.

Any illness is a creation of the person it inhabits. Of course we do not realize we are creating illness through our thoughts but each thought has a life of it own.

The goal is to be a conscious creator, instead of a creator by accident. To learn more about Journey work, law of attraction and other health empowering teachings go to the site below.…

Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome

Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome

Are you feeling tired, worn out, or just unable to regain your normal energy level no matter what you do? If the answer is yes then you may be suffering from a condition called Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome. Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome (technically called hypoadrenia) is a disorder that is affecting more and more people every day, however a majority of the sufferers are not even aware that their symptoms are even symptoms at all. This is a very prevalent, yet rarely diagnosed condition that has been around for the past 50 years. Because this condition has gone mostly overlook, most will be left untreated.

First, what exactly are the adrenal glands? The purpose of your adrenal glands are to assist your body in coping with any sort of stress. The stress can come from any possible source, from injury and disease to work and relationship problems, the adrenals handle it all. Often referred to as “the glands of stress”, the adrenal glands are directly responsible for your resiliency, energy, and endurance. Without any of these things we wouldn’t even be able to get out of bed in the morning, let alone deal with stress! They also are responsible for producing hormones such as adrenaline, cortisol, estrogen, and testosterone which are a necessary part of your body’s functionality. You have two adrenal glands, each the size of a walnut, and they sit atop each kidney. Centrally located, these glands not only affect every tissue, organ, and gland in your body, they also greatly affect how you think and feel as well.

Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome is when your adrenal glands have been over stimulated and are not functioning at the optimal level. Overstimulation of the adrenals can occur after periods of intense and lengthy physical or emotional stress. Your glands then become exhausted, unable to keep up with your increased stress levels, therefore resulting in the adrenals not being able to supply your body with the sufficient amount of hormones that it needs to function at a normal level. Some common symptoms of Adrenal Fatigue are:

– excessive fatigue and exhaustion- inability to cope with stress of any kind- feeling constantly rundown- craving salty and sweet foods- craving caffeine or other stimulants- difficulty concentrating- low stamina- poor digestion- low immune function- low blood pressure- getting non-refreshing sleep

Unfortunately, there is no test that one can take to diagnose adrenal fatigue syndrome and there is no miracle pill to cure it either. Recovery from Adrenal Fatigue takes major lifestyle changes along with taking different supplements and vitamins that your doctor recommends. In order for you to fully recover from this condition it will take dedication and patience.

If you believe that you indeed may be suffering from Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome here are some simple life style changes that can help improve the functionality of your adrenal glands:

– Laugh as often as possible, this increases the parasympathetic supply to the adrenal glands- avoid stressful environments and people- exercise 3-4 times per week (or more)- go to bed no later than 10 pm every night- sleep in until 9 am, if possible- eat 6 small meals a day, rather than 3 large meals- always eat breakfast- avoid alcoholic beverages as they hinder the functioning of your immune system- avoid excessive caffeine intake- avoid excessive sweets, try to regulate your blood sugar- take a multivitamin/ B complex- take adrenal glandulator, this is helpful in replacing some hormones that may be missing- take Pregnenolone, DHEA, these are good hormones that can help to resolve adrenal fatigue…
