Not feeling yourself lately? Don’t ignore the symptoms like brain fog, skin issues, weight gain, and poor sleep. No matter what anyone tells you, these symptoms aren’t normal.
In fact, they’re your body’s “check engine light,” so don’t ignore them. When people start to feel rundown, they usually start to make justifications in our mind, which explains why they feel the way they feel.
They may say things to themselves like “I’m stressed” or “It’s because I’m getting older,” or even “My parents were like this at my age.” Sure, these factors will play a small role in your energy levels over time. It’s when you’re feeling tired regularly and dealing with symptoms like brain fog, joint pains, and unexplained weight gain.
You can be sure that these are warning signs of deeper imbalances. Think of these symptoms as the tip of the iceberg, and we all know that the tip is just a hint of more ice hiding below. It is also true of chronic illness.
The signs of trouble brewing can be more subtle; unlike sudden acute illnesses like a car accident or a virus, chronic illness can creep upon us. These symptoms are the “check engine light” alerting us that something is going on and can be symptoms as so many different imbalances from hormonal issues including insulin and stress hormones, food intolerance, toxic overload, compromised liver health and metabolism, to name a few.
On most of the mentioned, the medicine may find it difficult to link these symptoms to the real root causes. We use our clinical experience of treating chronic illnesses along with more in-depth functional testing to understand where your check engine light is on.
