Probably heaps of stuff, but for me they are the ones who opened up my eyes to alternative medicine that still fits within a scientific approach.
Chris Kresser’s approach in particular is now becoming main-stream: Fix the Gut, and you fix the Man (or Woman)! And with aspects such as the gut-brain connection, Vagus Nerve, and Probiotics now being studied regularly, he was quite a bit ahead of his time.
Take for example, Adrenal Fatigue. Most mainstream GP’s would roll their eyes if you told them you wanted your Serum Cortisol checked. “Just get more sleep and don’t stress so much” was the general prescription. Well, that or a pharmaceutical prescription!
However, it is now being proven due to the volume of people affected, particularly those in ‘white collar’ occupations, that Adrenal Fatigue is a very real, and very debilitating illness. Just ask me, I’ve had it, and still battle bouts of it. And I wrote about it briefly here.
Read Kresser’s Post here on his take on the modern lifestyle and the link to Adrenal Fatigue:
Now it’s your turn – do you suffer from fatigue?
What are your personal experiences?
I’d love to hear and compare thoughts!
