Dr Libby comes to town

The Tribune (NZ) - - FRONT PAGE -

Dr Libby Weaver – lead­ing nu­tri­tional bio­chemist, au­thor, mo­ti­va­tional speaker and Tri­bune colum­nist is in Palmer­ston North next Mon­day night. It’s a rare chance to meet one of Aus­trala­sia’s lead­ing author­i­ties on per­sonal well­be­ing.

Dr Libby’s Why Are You So Tired? seminar on Mon­day 5 of­fers prac­ti­cal sup­port for her latest book Ex­hausted to En­er­gised.

So, why are we so drained? The rea­sons, she says are dif­fer­ent for each and ev­ery one of us.

‘‘One of the main rea­sons is that we are tak­ing on more and more, de­mand­ing more of our­selves men­tally and phys­i­cally than ever be­fore.’’

There’s the ‘strug­gle with restora­tive sleep and com­pen­sate with stim­u­lants’ cy­cle, com­bined with un­der­ly­ing bio­chem­i­cal and emo­tional pro­cesses.

‘‘I see so many peo­ple who have cre­ated amaz­ing lives – chil­dren, part­ners, work, study, travel… yet they can’t en­joy the life they’ve cre­ated be­cause they are too ex­hausted,’’ Dr Libby says.

I want to help peo­ple live their lives with more energy so that they can en­joy what they’ve cre­ated.’’

Symp­tions such as fa­tigue, low mood, anx­ious feel­ings, ap­a­thy, un­re­freshed sleep or in­som­nia, brain fog, low­ered re­sis­tance to in­fec­tions, stiff­ness, di­ges­tive prob­lems, ‘‘un­ex­plained’’ changes in body fat lev­els, and signs of rapid ag­ing are just some of the ways our body can let us know that we are be­com­ing phys­i­cally, men­tally and/or emo­tion­ally ex­hausted.

Her book ex­plores where energy comes from, how it is made, what de­pletes it and how to reignite it.

Why Are You So Tired? is on this com­ing Mon­day in the El­wood Room, Cen­ten­nial Con­ven­tion Cen­tre, 354 Main St at 7pm.

Pre-sale tick­ets are $39.95 at Dr­Libby.com with door sales $45.
