Leaky Gut Stolen Energy Toxic bloodstream

How A “Leaky” Gut Can Leave You Absolutely Exhausted Each Day, Even After Sleep.

Written by Dr. Liz Cruz

If you’ve been racked with unexplained fatigue and tiredness for way too long – without clear answers as to why; allow me to share why you shouldn’t lose hope.

In this article, I’ll explain how and why poor gut health sucks away the body’s energy reserves. I’ll also share the dominant role the gut plays in your overall health, and why repairing, rebuilding, and healing your gut function is an absolute must for your energy and vitality to return.

I have been personally assessing and treating patients with “mystery fatigue” for almost 15 years. My clinic, Dr. Liz Cruz Partners in Digestive Health, has a registry of over 17,000 patients. I’ve learned a lot about how to help people suffering in silence with serious digestive issues that have compromised their energy levels. One of the most common issues I’ve been able to help people resolve naturally is perhaps the most frustrating and distressing of all: having no energy to do anything!

The aim of this article is to give you an in-depth understanding of the connection between chronic fatigue and its relationship to your gut health. You can come away with hope that there is a proven and natural way to restore your vitality, even if nothing has worked until now.

You need to know there is hope. This doesn’t have to be a life sentence.

#1 – l asked myself, “Why aren’t they getting well?!”    

I have been a Gastroenterologist since 2003 and have owned my own practice since 2007. I have taken care of thousands of patients, many of who suffer from increased levels of fatigue and decreased levels of energy.  What’s even crazier is this is happening to everyone across the board, no matter what age.

As a physician, I have strived to be an advocate for my patients by listening carefully to get to the root of every issue. I am extremely thorough with my workups, and I couldn’t help but notice a disturbing trend: Most of the time, my patients’ tests were coming back negative.

This dead end made it difficult to figure out what was wrong with them.

I was putting my patients on medications, only for them to come back and say they weren’t feeling any better.

I was also seeing younger patients with the same issues that I usually saw in older patients. I was perplexed. I was upset. l like to help people get better—it’s why I became a doctor in the first place. So, l went on a search for answers.

For the next three years, I studied everything I could that related to digestive health, healing, weight loss, diet, detoxification, fatigue and the inadequacies of the modern healthcare system. (It’s unfortunate, but these areas get little to no focus in medical school in which the pharmaceutical approach to care dominates.)

What I discovered during this time was a giant wake-up call for me.

Of course, I continue to practice per the standard of care as a gastroenterologist by running tests and performing procedures on patients. Based on what I learned, however, l realized l was missing a critical piece of the puzzle in the care l was providing.

In 2010, I began to offer wellness education and services, too.

l also started to write about my unique approach to digestive health, which in turn affects overall health, so that l could reach as many people as possible with this important message.

In this short video, I talk about the personal journey I’ve taken to be able to offer hope to people who want to resolve serious digestive and other health issues naturally, and start being able to enjoy their life again.

#2 Sound familiar?

It may shock you, but approximately one million Americans suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a medical condition characterized by long-term fatigue and other symptoms that limit a person’s ability to carry out ordinary daily activities. So these one million people are people who have been given a diagnosis.  This doesn’t even come close to estimating how many people feel higher levels of fatigue or less energy than ever before.  If I use my patients as a base for answering that, approximately 85% of my 17,000 patients would fall into this category.  Most of these people are frustrated because they just want to live a normal life.

But they can’t. The symptoms of fatigue and low energy begin to steal away their health and their peace of mind. They go to the doctor, tests are run, but no significant findings come back. This can be very frustrating in a world where we want answers for our symptoms.

In my opinion, being tired and having low energy is the first sign that the body is not working properly.  It’s a clear indication that something is wrong that needs to be fixed.  

Signs and symptoms of fatigue include:

  • tiredness
  • sleepiness, including falling asleep against your will (“micro” sleeps)
  • irritability
  • depression
  • giddiness
  • loss of appetite
  • digestive problems, and
  • increased susceptibility to illness

Studies report the effects of fatigue as:

  • reduced decision making ability
  • reduced ability to do complex planning
  • reduced communication skills
  • reduced productivity / performance
  • reduced attention and vigilance
  • reduced ability to handle stress on the job
  • reduced reaction time – both in speed and thought
  • loss of memory or the ability to recall details
  • failure to respond to changes in surroundings or information provided
  • unable to stay awake (e.g., falling asleep while operating machinery or driving a vehicle)
  • increased tendency for risk-taking
  • increased forgetfulness
  • increased errors in judgement
  • increased sick time, absenteeism, rate of turnover
  • increased medical costs, and
  • increased accident rates

If you’re like most people suffering needlessly with these symptoms, you are frustrated with the lack of treatment. Most people turn to caffeine thinking it is their answer.  It might be a short lived solution but in the end will do more damage than good.

In other words, getting to the root cause of fatigue and low energy will be the most important thing you will ever do for your body and your long-term health.

Also, most people, chalk up their fatigue and low energy to “just getting older.” They use the excuse, all of my friends are tired and have low energy and so do I so it’s normal.  Let me tell you, it’s not normal.  If your body is working properly and getting what it needs on a daily basis you should have enough energy to get through the day and then some.

Here are some of the complaints I hear from patients that just shouldn’t be:

  • “I am so tired that every day around mid-day I have to take a nap.”
  • “I stopped putting makeup on in the morning because I’m just too tired.”
  • “I can’t hike anymore with my spouse because I just get too exhausted.”
  • “I have a hard time keeping up with my grandkids – they get sad because I can’t be active with them.”
  • “My son stopped asking me to help him with things because I always said I couldn’t because I was too tired.”
  • “I lost my job because I just couldn’t keep up with the work.”

Let me tell you, there is a cause behind ALL of these symptoms despite your doctors’ attempts at finding it.

You have probably heard about the law of cause and effect. Quite simply your symptoms are the effect of some cause.

Don’t accept the notion that there is nothing else you can do and that you have to live like this for the rest of your life. Fatigue and low energy do NOT have to be a part of your future, and it doesn’t have to rob you of happiness and peace of mind.

#3 No one understands what I’m going through…

Here are just a few short stories, emblematic of what l hear from patients suffering from what started out as fatigue and low energy.

Maybe you can relate…

…I am a 46-year-old female that has been struggling with fatigue and low energy since my early 30’s.  I started drinking more coffee in the morning and two sodas instead of one in the afternoon just so I could get through my day.  By the time I got home from work, I was so exhausted I didn’t have the energy to make myself a meal so I would pick up some fast food.  By the age of 40 I was diagnosed with high blood pressure and high cholesterol for which I was placed on medicine.   

…I am almost 75 and have suffered from fatigue and low energy since my mid-forties.  I worked in a high stress job and had been on anti-anxiety and antidepressants since my mid-thirties. I began gaining weight and was diagnosed with diabetes and high blood pressure in my mid-fifties for which I was placed on more medicine.  In my mid-60’s I was diagnosed with breast cancer and subsequently had both breasts removed.  

…I am a 29-year-old male who has been suffering from fatigue and low energy since my late teens.  I got hooked on energy drinks as they were the only thing I felt could keep me awake.  I ended up in Dr. Cruz’s office at the age of 22 with a massive stomach ulcer.   

…I am 63 years old, and I have been dealing with fatigue and low energy since I was in my late twenties.  In my early 30’s I started experiencing really bad digestive issues as well.  It came out of nowhere and I proceeded to see multiple doctors to determine what was going on.  Every test came back negative.  Not one doctor could tell me why I was suffering.  Their only answer was to put me on acid reflux and constipation medicines.  I had a hard time taking care of my children.  I felt like I couldn’t be a good mother to them.  Since then I have been diagnosed with depression and rheumatoid arthritis so bad that I can hardly get out of bed each day.  I have grandchildren now and when they come to visit they just sit next to the bed.  I hate not being able to play with my grandkids!

These are just a few of the many heartbreaking stories from people who started their downward health spiral with severe fatigue and low energy.  

These symptoms are no joke, and they are destroying people’s lives both in their physical body, in addition to their social and emotional well-being. Many of these people feel they have no life and no hope that anything will change.

#4 Along with fatigue, are you also living with these health problems…

On top of the draining fatigue you are experiencing, are you also dealing with any of these other health concerns?

Constipation – Constipation is experienced when an individual finds it difficult to empty out their bowels and is usually linked with hard stool. Constipation can be very uncomfortable and even painful.

Diarrhea – Diarrhea is experienced when an individual has frequent, loose stools. Bowel movements usually occur during the daytime, and most often in the morning or after meals. Diarrhea is often preceded by a sense of extreme urgency and followed by a feeling of incomplete emptying.

Stomach Pain – These types of pains can be experienced in the lower area of the abdomen that may hurt more after meals or snacks; and typically they will feel better after a bowel movement. Individuals will notice that these stomach pains might last for hours, or that the pain simply comes and goes in intervals.

Bloating – This symptom goes hand-in-hand with having diarrhea or constipation on a regular basis. While there are many underlying reasons for bloating, the cause of this symptom is due to excess gas in the bowel.

Anxiety – Feeling scared, afraid, shy, and anxious. It’s natural to feel this way if you are not feeling well. Because of this issue, many people suffering decide to stay at home and isolate themselves from family, friends, or partaking in their favorite hobbies.

Lower Back Pain – This centralized form of pain can occur in some patients due to the location of the colon. When individuals are constipated, it is very common to suffer from terrible back pain.

Reduced Sexual Desire – Imagine feeling exhausted all the time. Add in the other symptoms of bloating, gas, lower back, and abdominal pain. No one would ever question why a person would not have any desire to be sexual. In fact, it would be the last thing on a person’s agenda. Therefore, it’s no surprise that those who suffer from fatigue and low energy also have a significant decrease in their sex drive. Sadly, this issue does not only affect the individuals living with fatigue, but also their partners and relationships.

Sleeping Issues – Everyone needs a certain amount of sleep each night to function properly; if you’re suffering from fatigue and low energy one of the big causes might be the fact that you are not getting a good night’s sleep.  Some of the reasons people have a hard time sleeping include insomnia, sleep apnea and restless legs syndrome.  On average studies say we need at least 7.5 to 8.5 hours of sleep everyday. Studies have reported that most night workers get about 5 to 7 hours less sleep per week than the day shift. (You can accumulate a sleep “debt”, but not a surplus.)

Gas Pain – Gas pains are different from regular, everyday stomach pains. Saying that your stomach hurts can be a result of your stomach (i.e. gastritis, ulcer), pancreas, gallbladder, and a slew of other ailments. Gas pains, on the other hand, are because there is a need to make a bowel movement, and nothing has happened. Gas pains can also be an indication of diarrhea episode coming on. Either way, gas pains can be painful and inhibit an individual’s daily activities for hours.

Incomplete Bowel Movements – This is when an individual may struggle to have a full movement–so much so, they may have blood in their stools. It may also cause an individual to try to have a bowel movement for days, and only produce a frustratingly small fraction of what should come out. Essentially, this forces you to endure the discomfort and inconvenience of marathon, “caterpillar” bowel movements over the course of days, while others get to quickly and easily “flush it and forget it” in a matter of minutes and seconds.

#5 What is normal – journey inside a healthy, happy, energetic body

Before you can understand the root cause of your fatigue and start to feel hope for the future, you need to understand the amazing power the gut has to influence the health of the entire body.

And that starts by understanding what normal is: how your digestion system should be working today if your gut hadn’t become sickly and “sprung a leak.”

It starts by looking at your food and drink intake as fuel for your body: Every day your body is making new cells and getting rid of old cells. There are trillions of cells in your body all with specific functions.  Brain cells have a different function from heart cells, which have a different function than skin cells. Cells make up tissue, tissue makes up organs, and organs make up your body. This means that if you have healthy cells, you will have a healthy body; if you have sick cells, you will have a sick body.  

The feeding and cleaning up of your cells on a daily basis is the primary function of the digestive system (your gut). When your gut is not working properly, it cannot only affect your digestive health but the health and energy levels of your whole body.

An unhealthy gut struggles to feed and clean your body’s cells. Your cells deliver energy to every organ in your body!

Without this turning into a science lesson, let’s go a little deeper:

When you eat food, it goes into your stomach as a solid. Obviously, we chew it, but we do not chew our food into a liquid. Your body cannot use food in a solid form. It must be broken down into a liquid (called chyme), so your body can benefit from it. This means when you eat, your body has to go to work making things like enzymes, acid, and other gastric juices.  

When your digestive system is working properly, the digested food (or chyme) will have enough enzymes, acid, and juices to break it down properly, so it can exit the stomach and move into the small intestine as a liquid. There, it will get absorbed through the wall of the small intestine, bringing to the body much-needed nutrients for building healthy cells.

Healthy cells make healthy tissue, and healthy tissue makes healthy organs. Then, guess what you have? A healthy energy-filled body.

In short: You are what you eat and digest.

Healthy clean food makes healthy clean cells, and in turn, healthy clean organs and a healthy clean body.

On the flip side, processed food and fast food makes toxic cells, toxic organs, and a toxic body. Having a toxic body makes it difficult for your body to do its job, which is to heal you!

Whatever the body doesn’t absorb in the small intestine, the body then dumps into the large intestine (or colon). The colon is a muscle filled with trillions of good healthy bacteria; its job is to squeeze as many nutrients and as much water as it can while creating a formed stool in the process.  

A healthy functioning body should be digesting, absorbing, and eliminating food and drink daily. A healthy body should be having at least 2 to 3 bowel movements per day (preferably one after every meal).

The bowel movements should be firm, but soft and well-formed. A healthy body is free from all medical symptoms, has enough energy to get through the day (and then some), and is free from aches and pains.

The bottom line: The gut is ground zero for your overall health.

A healthy person with a healthy gut does not get dragged down by tiredness through the day, and she goes about her daily tasks with no health issues whatsoever.  Without a healthy gut working properly without medicine, it is very difficult to have a healthy body.    

 #6 Competing “theories” about what causes fatigue

There are a number of competing theories about what causes fatigue.  Some of which may be contributing to your issue but are not the root-cause.

Work-related factors may include long work hours, long hours of physical or mental activity, insufficient break time between shifts, inadequate rest, excessive stress or a combination of these factors.

Sometimes, a sleep disorder may cause fatigue. These conditions include:

Insomnia

People who suffer from insomnia often complain that they cannot fall asleep, or cannot stay asleep for a full night. They may frequently wake up during the night, wake up too early, not able to fall asleep at night, or have difficulty getting back to sleep if woken. Either way, they do not feel rested. Insomnia can be both short term (in response to a stressful event or change in environment) or long term.

Sleep Apnea

Most cases of sleep apnea are caused by a condition called “Obstructive Sleep Apnea”. Sleep apnea is a breathing disorder in which there are brief interruptions (lasting a minimum of 10 seconds) in breathing during sleep. This condition is caused by a narrowing (or collapse) of the throat or upper airway during sleep. This narrowing restricts or prevents breathing while you are sleeping (air cannot flow into or out of your nose and mouth even though your body continues to try to breathe). With sleep apnea, there are frequent interruptions to sleep making your sleep unrestful. People often complain of early morning headaches and excessive daytime sleepiness.

Symptoms of sleep apnea include:

  • chronic, loud snoring
  • gasping or choking while sleeping
  • excessive daytime sleepiness, and
  • personality changes or difficulties thinking

Restless Legs Syndrome

With restless legs syndrome, people report sensations of creeping, crawling, pulling, or tingling which cause an irresistible urge to move their legs. This phenomenon usually happens as a person is trying to fall asleep, making sleep difficult. Movements may also occur during sleep, partially waking the person (even though they might not “notice”) and disrupting sleep patterns.

Narcolepsy

Narcolepsy is a rare condition associated with sudden sleep “attacks” where a person will have an uncontrollable urge to sleep many times in one day.

Other Situations

Substances such as nicotine, caffeine, and alcohol can affect the quality of sleep. Caffeine can remain in the body for about 3 to 7 hours and may affect sleep. Alcohol may shorten the time to fall asleep, but it disrupts later in the night. Nicotine also can disrupt sleep and reduce total sleep time.

Other substances such as over-the-counter medications or prescriptions may also affect sleep. For example, long-acting benzodiazepines (drugs used to relieve anxiety or insomnia) may contribute to daytime sleepiness.

After working with over 17,000 patients, it’s my strong belief that what’s become known as leaky gut syndrome is actually the elusive root-cause of fatigue and low energy. Let me share the details behind why:

#7 Why a sickly “leaky” gut is at the root of unexplained fatigue

In the most simplest terms Leaky Gut Syndrome (LGS) just means the intestinal lining is more permeable than it should be.

The ultra-delicate lining of your intestines is only one cell thick, so is easily prone to “leakage.”

The purpose of your gut lining is to enable you to absorb nutrients from the food you’ve eaten and digested, and it keeps bacteria, wastes, and undigested food out of your bloodstream and in your intestines where they belong.

If you have a leaky gut, not only do the wastes and toxins gain entry into your bloodstream, you also have a reduced ability to absorb vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients from your food causing the first sign of ill health fatigue and low energy.

The lining of your intestines is only one cell thick. When that delicate lining tears – your “leaky gut” invades your bloodstream with toxic “foreign bodies.” The body reacts by creating widespread energy-stealing inflammation.

Our small intestines are laced with finger-like projections called villi. These villi increase the surface area of the intestine and contain specialized cells that transport substances into the bloodstream. Although these villi do not aid in the digestion of nutrients, they do help with nutrient absorption.

With LGS, the tissue of the villi in the small intestine becomes inflamed and irritated, which allows metabolic and microbial toxins of the small intestines to flood into the bloodstream. This event compromises the liver, the lymphatic system, and the immune response, including the endocrine system.

Some of the most incurable diseases are caused by this exact mechanism, where the body attacks its own tissues. This is commonly called auto-immune disease.

Leaky Gut is often the primary cause of the following common conditions. Asthma, food allergies, chronic sinusitis, eczema, urticaria, migraine, irritable bowel, fungal disorders, fibromyalgia, and inflammatory joint disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis are just a few of the diseases that can originate with leaky gut. It also contributes to PMS, uterine fibroid, and breast fibroid.

Leaky Gut Syndrome is often the basis for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

#8 Why good doctors can only tell you to “live with” fatigue

Most doctors do not test for intestinal permeability or “leaky gut,”  because there is no one medicine, pill, potion, or surgery, to fix intestinal permeability.  

When patients present with fatigue symptoms, doctors are left to follow the standard of care. They will primarily test for sleeping disorders but the bottom-line is there are no medicines for fatigue and low energy so doctors tend to spend little time on the issue.  Unfortunately fatigue and low energy are the precursor symptoms to so much more if not resolved.    

Unfortunately the “standard of care,” in medicine many times, is driven by pharmaceutical companies; these companies have a lot of money at stake in selling their drugs.

Doctors are driven by research-based studies—double-blind, placebo studies that are supposed to prove or disprove a certain drug can do a job without hurting someone. Most of the drug companies have so much money that they can put together whatever kind of study they wish. What’s most troubling of all? They can pay for whatever outcome they’d like.

If a study says “it works,” doctors often take it as gospel and begin prescribing the drug like candy. Some doctors are even paid to prescribe or promote a drug.

You can end up having to cart around a dedicated “pill purse” filled with white-capped orange containers, none of which is helping you get to the real root of what’s wrong.

Many pharmaceutical companies also invest big money into medical schools. They do this not because they want to contribute to to the doctors in this country but because they want to control what the doctors in this country are prescribing.

Our health—or should I say illness—in this country is all about the bottom line for big pharmaceutical companies!

Few medical schools are teaching the long-term side effects of the drugs doctors are being asked to prescribe. Few medical schools are also looking at the drug-to-drug interaction in patients’ bodies. And few medical schools are teaching how to treat the whole body.

Why?

Because no one would make any money teaching those things. No one makes any money if people’s’ guts are healthy and they’re full of energy and life!

Don’t misunderstand me, please. There are proper times to introduce pharmaceutical medicine. The idea, however, of taking a medicine long-term to help a person live with their health issues is not the answer. We live in a society that demands medicine for illness instead of getting to the root cause.

Getting to the root cause of fatigue—the gut—changes the whole game.

#9 Dangerous long-term effects of fatigue  

As I’ve mentioned fatigue and low energy are typically the first sign and symptom that the body is not working properly and needs tending to. The problem is so many people are experiencing fatigue and low energy that it seems like a normal thing these days. And the solution that has been so lovingly beat into our head is drink caffeine. Try a 5 hour energy, consider a Monster, how about another Starbucks?  Unfortunately, all that does is make the situation worse and although one might not be able to see it or feel it right away, additional and long term damage is taking place.

Not properly tending to your fatigue and low energy early on will most likely lead to further disease. Whether you get diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome, depression  or other diseases such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, fibromyalgia or worse yet cancer. These are just naming a few of the most common diagnoses I see everyday. But even many of these are considered “normal” as we get older.  I can’t tell you how many patients have told me that having high blood pressure and high cholesterol is normal at their age.

Let me emphasize, it is not normal to have any disease at any time, I don’t care how old you are. You should be living disease free with good energy until the day you die.

As a society we have literally talked ourselves into being sick. We have literally made it acceptable to be on one medicine after another to “control” our symptoms.  We have not even considered that there is something that can be fixed to turn it all around.

#10 Why over-the-counter and prescription medications don’t work

There are no medicines whatsoever for fatigue and low energy.  But having fatigue and low energy usually leads into bigger health issues that require medicine.  So let’s discuss why these medicines are not the answer.

I would like to emphasize that I find the more prescription medications a person is on, the sicker the body gets. Taking prescription medicines on an ongoing basis, in my opinion, is putting a Band-Aid on the issue instead of fixing the issue.

Medicines are chemicals and chemicals are toxins. The main reason why the body is sick to begin with is because it is overloaded with toxins. And for some reason the solution for that is to add more toxins to the body.

There is a reason you are experiencing symptoms and disease. Covering it up with medicine might control the issue but it is only making the body as a whole sicker. There is a way to turn symptoms and disease around and thankfully it’s not that hard.

#11 The overlooked natural solution to fatigue: Repairing your leaky gut…

Strong gut function is one of the most critical aspects of our health; it’s what creates healthy energy levels in the body and eliminates toxins.

If your gut is leaking and not working properly, many issues develop, including but not limited to:

  • Being tired and having low energy all the time
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Autoimmune disease
  • Skin problems
  • Thyroid dysfunction
  • Allergies or food sensitivities
  • Hay fever or sinusitis
  • Headaches or migraines
  • Fibromyalgia or arthritis
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Weight gain or loss

Does any of this sound familiar?

None of us wants to experience any of this. Nor do we want to risk any of the long-term effects fatigue and low energy can have on the body or our quality of life. When you seek help for various medical issues, what are you usually given? Medicine that only “cloaks” the problem. These medicines don’t give your body a chance to heal, and they can make you even sicker.

Too many people in this country are suffering silently. I feel it’s my responsibility to educate patients and clients about the real cause of fatigue and low energy.

The solution is not masking the problem by offering medicines that continue to promote an unhealthy body resulting in malnourishment and a toxic build-up.

Taking dozens of supplements is also not the answer. That’s not how your body wants to get well.

The way to achieving gut health—and by extension, tip-top overall health—is by repairing and rebuilding the lining of the digestive system and then learning how to keep it well. Then, you can start enjoying life again, without being held back by fatigue with every tired step you take.

 

 #12 What’s possible with the right individualized help

I have successfully treated hundreds of patients over the years suffering terribly with leaky gut syndrome and the fatigue it causes. I know how well it disguises itself as other conditions, and how progressive and dangerously cumulative its effects can be.

I also know that it can be healed.

A body racked with tiredness, low energy, aches and pains, can transform into a body filled with strength and vitality. Embarrassing and painful symptoms you fear you’ll live with for the rest of your life can simply fade away.

Yes, a leaky gut can be expertly and painlessly plugged. However, there is no one-size-fits-all solution.

Various factors interplay to help you repair and rebuild the gut lining.

These include, but are not limited to, your level of enzyme intake, the function of your immune system, your food intake, how often you take antibiotics, whether or not you use tobacco, your level of hydration, your stress level, your level of alcohol intake, and the medicines you take.

None of these factors alone is a “magic bullet;” yet addressed in tandem, they can heal your leaky gut naturally.

If you’d like our help, my staff and I work closely with you to help you repair and rebuild your gut function, so you become pain and symptom-free, and so you can come off medications with your doctor’s consent and supervision.

We also show you how to maintain your newfound healthy gut function for the rest of your life, so digestion issues can never again steal away your energy, and rob you of your right to enjoy your life without worry, stress, and pain.   

Our goal is to help you escape the clutches of fatigue for good and to free you from the shackles that hold you back from living life to the fullest.

You need to know there is hope. This doesn’t have to be a life sentence.
