Dr Oz: The #1 Reason You’re Exhausted
Are you running on empty and unsure why are you are constantly feeling drained or exhausted? This is a common complaint from Dr Oz’s audience, but what’s the reason for it? He said we are having an energy crisis, and viewers across America have complained about fatigue and low energy. Which of these low energy causes sounds most like your life?
Dr Oz: Low Energy
Three women, Julie, Ann, and Cathy, joined Dr Oz to talk about their experiences. Julie works full time and comes home to a full house. She wants more energy to manage her household. Her three kids have hectic schedules, getting up at 6 a.m. and getting everyone out the door to different schools.
Julie said her low energy symptoms affect her moods and she feels guilty for snapping at her children. Other stresses in her life include traffic on the drive to work (it sounds like Julie has road rage!).
Dr Oz: Low Energy from Anxiety
Ann from New Jersey revealed her experience next. She said that her mind runs faster than she can move her body, and she says she’s exhausted from the moment she opens her eyes each morning. She is anxious and constantly juggling a three-year-old and 10-week-old baby.
She’s never sure whether she’s doing the right thing. But Ann said she’s had these feelings of anxiety since she was a teen. Her usual remedy is a cup of coffee, but she hasn’t found a lasting solution.
Dr Oz: Low Energy from Hormones
Cathy from Brooklyn is an empty nester, but she feels like her kids moving out has zapped her energy. She reported that she feels tired more often than she used to. Staying busy and active with the kids kept her from feeling run down. Her grandkids don’t know why she can’t keep up with them anymore, and she thinks hormonal changes are to blame.
She said she’s changed her diet and exercises more, but hasn’t experienced an energy spike. Sometimes she takes a nap in the afternoon and wakes up the next morning. (That’s crazy!)
What Causes Low Energy?
These women have three different stories, but Dr Oz said that there could be one common thread that explains why they’re all feeling low on energy. He said that Julie’s stress triggers are like flipping a switch, which ramp up her energy that comes out as anger. But that energy dissolves after just a few seconds. In fact, getting angry zaps her energy.
Julie’s anxiety affects her energy levels. Dr Oz compared her situation to a hamster wheel, and he said that it’s a vicious circle that carries over from one day to the next. As for Cathy, her hormones are definitely an ingredient in explaining her energy problems.
Dr Oz: Low Energy Solution
Could there be one solution that will help all these women find more energy? Dr Oz said the answer to that question is yes. Do you have any guesses about what it might be? Whose story sounds most familiar to your own personal energy crisis?
