But don’t give up!! If you know that what you’re doing is a 100% with your workouts, your stress levels, your sleep and your nutrition and there is nothing else you could do more, then you know that it’s time to look at something else.
I have been dealing with certain health issues (hormones, sleep issues, weight gain, lack of energy, food sensitivities, etc) for about 4 years right now. Each time I look a little deeper into what’s going on with my body and try to figure out how I can fix things, I stumble upon something else that might be the root cause. But one thing I won’t do, is give up. 😉
A few months back, someone commented to me that she thought maybe I was just too sensitive about things, which I took as I was reading too much into things. At first I was offended by that comment, but when I thought more about it, I like the fact that I’m very in tune with my body, so that I understand it and know when it’s not feeling right.
I have clients right now that work out as hard as they ever have, eat as clean as they ever have and still continue to have issues with their health, whether it be weight gain, chronic fatigue, aches and pains or sleep issues. As I keep in touch with them, they are learning that these are things that they didn’t even know anything about such as mold issues, lyme disease, thyroid problems from taking the wrong medications and even genetics! Yes, I am soon to be getting a genetic test done to determine if I have a MTHFR gene mutation.
The MTHFR gene instructs the body to make an enzyme necessary to convert vitamin B9 into a usable form. This enzyme is also important in the process of converting homocysteine into methionine — an amino acid the body needs for growth and metabolism. Proper methylation enables the body to detoxify toxic metals, toxins, and other wastes more efficiently. – See more at: http://www.globalhealingcenter.com/natural-health/what-is-the-mthfr-genetic-defect/#sthash.nSv5boSO.dpuf
DON’T GIVE UP!
