Many chronic pain patients also experience chronic fatigue.
Let’s face it, constant pain can be draining.
But exhaustion doesn’t have to be your new normal, says leading medical author and nutritionist Dr Amy Shah.
In her latest book, the aptly titled I’m So Effing Tired, Dr Shah provides a “proven plan” to boost energy levels and “reclaim your life.”
This book is an easy to understand, yet comprehensive science-backed solution to mitigate the epidemic of fatigue and burnout.
It’s a game changer for anyone suffering from burnout and exhaustion, she says.
Inspired by her personal wellness journey, Dr Shah created a program that taps the root causes of energy loss – the complex, interconnected relationship between your gut, your immune system, and your hormones.
Drawing on the latest science and her work helping thousands of clients, Dr Shah explains how to transform your life by changing:
What You Eat: increase your fibre-rich, prebiotic vegetables – without giving up treats like wine and chocolate!
Why You're Stressed: a simple exercise program combined with special herbs to help ease anxiety
When You Eat: how intermittent fasting can revamp your energy
With this formula, Dr Shah says you'll feel your energy surge in just two weeks.
In three months, you'll feel like a new person, she says.
“It's time to regain the energy you've lost, so you can get back to the life you want to live.”
Dr Shah intersperses her advice with stories of patients from her own practice and with her own story.
She explains how intermittent fasting can benefit your health “safely and effectively.”
And she provides some great recipes and ingredients and hormone balancing foods as you break your fast.
This book has some helpful tips on how to improve your diet and how to reduce stress.
Dr Shah also explains the importance of prioritizing healthy sleep.
It’s a book that could change your life.
