Yep, last Monday I was sitting in a chair getting an IV. Actually asking for and paying out of my pocket for one. Yikes! Every time I’ve had surgery or had to go into the hospital for something, it’s the IV I disliked most of all. Surgery? No problem. I’m asleep! It’s the IV that drives me to distraction. So why was I doing this? Let’s talk about the Kreb’s cycle. In really easy terms, it is a sequence of chemical reactions that convert carbohydrates, proteins and fats into energy for living cells. Deficiencies in certain nutrients hinder your body’s ability to perform all the chemical reactions in the Kreb’s cycle, ultimately reducing energy production within your cells.
Reasons you may also be nutrient deficient:
You don’t eat a good variety of real food. Organic food the way God created it (no labels needed) is full of bio-available nutrients. But let’s say you read Step Two, and haven’t been able to change your eating habits, or you have, and you are still experiencing fatigue. Let’s look at how your body loves nutrients:
The first two ways are pretty clear. Real food, Fake food. Did God create it? It’s real. Does it have ingredients that come from a chemistry lab? It’s fake. So let’s zero in on number 3 and what causes gut dysfunction which leads to a lack of nutrient absorption.
The key to knowing if this is one of your issues is to get an Organic Acids Test. It’s a simple blood test that will tell you if you are experiencing deficiencies. This is one of the ways my doctor found out that my Krebs cycle is not working right. Despite taking high quality supplements for years, we found out (many hundreds of dollars later) that my body couldn’t absorb them. One thing led to another which confirmed complications of an environmental exposure to toxic mold that began breaking down my body. Had I known, I would have had an organic acids test done years ago! If you’re not sure where to go for one, and/or your doctor doesn’t understand the need…you can go here to order a test.
Does this sound like a possible issue for you? Let me know! Do you think this could help someone you know? Please pass it on. To quote a doctor I heard from recently…sharing is caring!
