Life Today

In our modern world stress has become an ubiquitous part of life but what if I told you that there were hidden culprits lurking beneath the surface beyond the realm of stress that could be contributing to your burnout.

Possible Hidden Causes of Burnout…

  • Your gut microbiome is a bustling community of bacteria, yeasts, and even parasites that play a crucial role in your overall health. But when this delicate balance is disrupted it can wreak havoc on your body.
  • Digestive issues and gut imbalances can lead to inflammation; nutrient malabsorption; and a compromised immune system, all of which can contribute to abdominal discomfort; food sensitivities; fatigue; brain fog; vagus nerve disfunction. And overall ending in Burnout.
  • But it’s not just your gut that can throw off your balance. Viruses, bacteria, parasites, and even mold-  can invade your body. Triggering this cascade of – inflammatory responses; digestive alterations; immune overreactions – all sending your body into a tail spin.
  • Post viral dysfunction in particular, can linger long after the initial infection has passed due to our immune system flipping into a dysfunctional state. And our mitochondria and inflammation levels become affected, leading to persistent symptoms such as – fatigue; muscle aches; and cognitive impairment.
  • An exposure to mold can sensitize your immune system, damage your mitochondria, damage and inflame your gut, and activate your Mast cells. Creating histamine issues which might show up as – allergies; reddening skin; inflammation; food intolerances; fatigue, and more.
  • And let’s not forget about the mitochondria themselves, the tiny little powerhouses within each of your cells, responsible for energy production. When these cellular engines malfunction, it can leave you feeling drained and depleted. Mitochondrial dysfunction can impair your body’s ability to generate energy; & heat and cool itself effectively, leading to feelings of fatigue and exhaustion which are the hallmarks of burnout. These small, essential tiny organs, of each cell are damaged by – toxins in our body; antibiotics; and by pesticides.
