Causing My Fatigue?

Posted by S on 07/31/2007

Thank you for sharing your knowledge on earthclinic.com. It has helped me in many ways. I have been doing the 2tbs acv 1/4 baking soda in water for almost three weeks. It has helped my migraines and joint aches as well as helped with my overall mental well being. However a side effect I have is that since taking this I have become increasingly tired. So much that I can not get out of bed or feel safe to drive or work. I began taking this remedy to try to help in regulating my menstrations and hormones. I've begun taking B-complex hoping this would give me added energy but it has not. I am wondering if I should lower dosages of acv or stop this remedy entirely. Thank You

When taking initially, the body is not really tired, but it wants a rest or plenty of sleep for the body to repair itself when it is taken for at least the first week or so.

If the body is REALLY tired as opposed to the desire for the body to recover itself, it would indicate another remedy where the liver is badly need for detoxification and amino acid levels in the body is low. In that case, the ACV and baking soda in the morning, I would change them to:

3-6 drops of H2O2 3% in 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda in 1 glass of water, in the morning only. The hydrogen peroxide should increase the oxygen, detox the liver and increase the energy during the morning hours.

Magnesium supplements should restore the other missing electrolytes, so that could be the other missing link, beside the amino acid supplements.

Natural vitamin E I might take it once a day should generally help and should also restore the tiredness in case the B complex doesn't work as well, but then on the other hand the Bs are not taken that frequently either.

The other liver detoxification is the excess fatty buildup of the liver where 1 tablespoon of granulated lecithin should help. Tiredness I have found is sometimes due to liver not being able to send nutrient supplies to the body as well as it should due to oily and fatty foods, or the fact that the liver is too much obstructed. Therefore a fish, tuna, sardines, soy protein, or some whey protein if taken during the morning hours, such as tuna solad for example is eaten might increase some energy by giving the needed energy. While it is true sugar increase short term energy burst, in the long run it taxes the entire body of energy as sugar blocks amino acid uptake by the liver, causing the body to tire easily due to reduce nutrients that liver can no longer supply to the demands of the body. So the issue doesn't directly appear to be ONLY acv and baking soda, but appears to be other factors coming into play in addition to.
