It’s dif­fer­ent for dif­fer­ent peo­ple

TATT suf­fer­ers may also ex­pe­ri­ence fa­tigue at cer­tain times, and not oth­ers. Okay, if you haven’t man­aged to get enough sleep, you’ve got good rea­son, but if you’re sleep­ing solidly, or at least try­ing to sleep, and you just can’t seem to re­cover and feel en­er­gised even af­ter eight hours’ solid, undis­turbed sleep, you know some­thing’s not right.

You may also find you lose all your en­ergy at par­tic­u­lar times of day, such as af­ter you’ve eaten, or when you’ve taken a lim­ited amount of ex­er­cise.

Here, spe­cific food in­tol­er­ances can rep­re­sent ‘straws that break the camel’s back’, or the ex­er­cise may over-drain a body that sim­ply could not pro­duce enough en­ergy for its myr­iad of func­tions. It may also be that your im­mune sys­tem is steal­ing so much en­ergy from the sys­tem that it can’t quite mount a suc­cess­ful full­blown at­tack against a pathogen, while also not leav­ing enough spare en­ergy for bound­ing health and vi­tal­ity – which is the nat­u­ral state of any­one who is not ge­net­i­cally or phys­i­cally im­paired.

There can also be on­go­ing me­di­a­tors or per­pet­u­a­tors that pre­vent the body restor­ing nor­mal en­ergy func­tions, such as ex­po­sure to spe­cific al­ler­gens or en­vi­ron­men­tal tox­ins, through to stress­ful life events (e.g. re­la­tion­ship or work-re­lated chal­lenges, fi­nan­cial dif­fi­cul­ties, loss of a loved one), a poor diet, a par­tic­u­lar nu­tri­ent de­fi­ciency, in­suf­fi­cient phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity or re­lax­ation, poor sleep qual­ity, smok­ing, too much drink or other un­healthy habits.

All of these el­e­ments can work to­gether and con­spire to cre­ate a vi­cious cir­cle that is, sadly, all too familiar to long-term suf­fer­ers of TATT syn­drome.

How­ever, as many pre­vi­ous suf­fer­ers of TATT, chronic fa­tigue syn­drome (CFS) or myal­gic en­cephalomyeli­tis (ME) have found, there are things that can be done both nu­tri­tion­ally, and in terms of life­style, that can help pro­vide an en­vi­ron­ment that al­lows the body to be re-ori­en­tated back to a path of vi­tal health and well-be­ing.
