Tired All the Time? - Doctor Explains the Symptoms, Causes and Solutions

In this episode I go through the possible causes of tiredness and how to fix them.

Accounting for almost 1.5% of all presentations to the family doctor, the feeling of being tired all the time is certainly very common. There are a multitude of reasons why, but it is important for the medical doctor to elicit any ‘red flag’ symptoms, such as, a new onset of tiredness in an otherwise well elderly person, abnormal bleeding, shortness of breath and fever just to name a few. Commonly tiredness may be related to non-organic causes, such as poor sleep, feeling low in mood or being stressed. In other circumstances, it may be related to a deficiency such as a vitamin deficiency. Other reasons include underlying medical conditions, such as diabetes or a thyroid disturbance. More worryingly it may be caused by sinister causes such as an undiagnosed cancer. There are many causes of tiredness of which this list is not exhaustive, however, if you yourself do suffer from tiredness, it is worthwhile speaking with your medical doctor for a full check up.

Having a healthy balanced diet with regular exercise can be a great way to combat tiredness that is not related to any underlying medical condition.

I hope you enjoy the workout and as always if you have any questions or comments please drop me in a line.

How to Make HEALTHY Carrot Cake | Doctor Explains Low Calorie Ingredients

Join me as I bake a healthier low calorie version of the classic Carrot Cake. A popular choice by many in the belief the carrots make it a healthier option, it is often laden with sugar, oil and butter.

In this episode, I share with you healthier alternatives to common ingredients to create this masterpiece whilst maintaining a genuine taste.

RECIPE AND METHOD

For the mixture:

- 3 Eggs

- 3 Grated Carrots

- 1 Tsp Fresh ginger

- 5 Dates cut in quarters

- 220g Pineapple mashed, without the juice

- 20g Walnuts

- 50ml Sugar-Free Maple syrup

- 1 Cup Flour

- 1 Tsp Bicarbonate of soda

- 2 Tsp Baking powder

- 2 Tsp Cinnamon powder

Mix the dry ingredients together and set aside. In a separate bowl mix the carrots, eggs, ginger, walnuts, dates, pineapple and maple syrup together. Once you have achieved an even texture add in the dry ingredients. Be sure not to over beat the mixture as the cake will loose its height.

Transfer the mixture into a baking tin and place in an already heated oven at 180 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until a knife can come out clean from the cake.

Set aside to rest and enjoy with a lovely cup of tea.

Please remember to always eat treats sensibly as part of a full healthy balanced diet and an active lifestyle.

Tip 1 - Your Health

Make this year about you. So many times we put others first but how about switching that over and putting yourself first. When was the last time you had a check up? Is it time to see the doctor about that niggling pain? Or perhaps it’s time for your skin check or cervical smear ladies. Not only is it important to have a physical check, but it’s also important to consider your mental health. The past year has been very taxing on a lot of people. If you have symptoms of low mood or anxiety it’s important to get help from a medical professional.

Tip 2 - Exercise

Yes, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again! This doesn’t have to be overly strenuous. It could be as simple as going for a walk, or lifting some light weights. It is recommended to perform at least 30 minutes of exercise at least 5 days a week where you get slightly short of breath. This has positive impacts on your cardiovascular health. Please remember to always consult with a doctor before engaging in any new exercise programs.

Tip 3 - Reflection

How many times have you paused and thought about your day? What have you learned and what could you have done differently? By having time to reflect, it allows us the ability to grow and nurture our strengths and reduce our weaknesses.

Tip 4 - Positivity

Maintaining a sense of positivity is an important trait for us all. We all experience negativity at some points in our life, which is fine but rather than dwelling on that negative experience, connect with it, accept it, experience it and then let it go. Conversely, when you feel positive about something, this helps to lift your self esteem and raise your confidence which other people around you will notice, making them feel positive too.

Tip 5 - Diet

This doesn’t mean a fad diet or taking a herb, or excluding a food group. This means the old fashioned way of dieting, being mindful of your food choices and changing accordingly. So instead of picking up a biscuit for your morning tea break, instead pick up a couple of nuts or a piece of fruit. Not only should you think about your food choices but also think about your beverages, for example drinking plenty of fizzy soda is going to affect your teeth, not to mention the high sugar content affecting the rest of your body. Food can also affect our immune system in a positive way, we can gain a lot of our minerals and vitamins from eating fresh produce.

Bonus Tip

When you set yourself goals be sure to make them specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and set a time for that target. This helps you to break your goals down so that when you reach your target date you feel fulfilled and don’t feel disheartened that you haven’t achieved your goals.

I opt to leave out the crust which is usually laden with flour, butter and preservatives all contributing to a high and unhealthy calorie intake.

INGREDIENTS

2 cups of pumpkin

½ cup of milk

¼ cup stevia

1tsp ginger (fresh or powder)

1tsp cinnamon

3 eggs

METHOD

- Prepare the oven on fan mode 180 degrees

- Make a pumpkin puree by either roasting the pumpkin or boiling 1cm cubes on the stove until they are soft and can be blended or whisked

- Mix the dry ingredients with the eggs

- Mix in the pumpkin puree once it has cooled down

- Pour in the mixture into a baking tray with a little oil to the base

- Cook for 1hr 25 mins or until a skewer can be put through the middle and comes out clean

- Leave to rest for at least 1 hour (or longer) for optimal taste

- Enjoy

PUMPKIN

Pumpkin is a nutrient dense vegetable, packed with vitamins, fibre and water which are all essential to our health and well being. For more information about the benefits of pumpkin be sure to watch my video on immune boosters found in food.

GINGER

Like peanut butter to jelly, ginger is to pumpkin. The two pair well together and ginger has some great health benefits. It contains vitamin c which helps us to fight off the common cold, it is a great natural anti-nausea remedy as well as an anti-inflammatory for muscles.

Please remember to always eat treats sensibly as part of a full healthy balanced diet and an active lifestyle.
