Why Are You Constantly Feeling Sick?

It is not uncommon for seasonal illnesses to make you feel sick and nauseated. In most cases, you’ve been unlucky to pick up some sort stomach bug, and the feeling of sickness is a symptom of your body fighting the intruder.

But when you constantly feel ill for weeks and months at a time, then the underlying issues can be a lot more concerning. In our experience here at the Young Wellness Center, there are 5 main reasons that people struggle with sickness.

If you have experienced constant or regular periods of feeling unwell, then book in for an appointment with us immediately. In many cases we can make an accurate diagnosis in a matter of days, allowing us to create a natural treatment plan that will get you back on track to feeling your best.

What Is Causing That Sick Feeling?

The following are the 5 most common causes we encounter, and they are always the primary focus in consultations.

1 – Food Allergies

Allergic reactions occur when your immune system takes immediate action against a certain type of food or ingredient. In very severe cases these reactions can be deadly, especially when it comes to anaphylactic reactions.

However, in most cases, people will have far less severe reactions including hives, rashes, and congestion. One of the indicators that something is causing congestion in your digestive system is a constant feeling of nausea and fatigue, as well as headaches.

By analyzing your diet through a food diary and running some allergy tests, it is possible to identify certain foods that are causing the problem.

2 – Food Intolerance

Food intolerance is in many ways similar to allergies in that your body’s immune system responds to the presence of certain harmless nutrients. One of the difficulties with diagnosing intolerances is that the symptoms can often occur 72 hours after you have eaten a certain type of food.

Along with a constant unwell feeling, you can also develop chronic headaches, joint pain, skin conditions like psoriasis and insomnia. In the long term, these symptoms can become very debilitating, and you should definitely seek out medical advice.

Our team of specialists is able to help you identify any dietary problems, as well as come up with a suitable meal plan that will get rid of that sick feeling.

3 – Environmental Factors

These can be particularly concerning because unlike allergies and intolerances, you could actually be ingesting very harmful toxins.

The unfortunate reality is that we are constantly surrounded by harmful chemicals. You can find them in the form of pesticides on food, chemical cleaning products and weed killer used in most gardens around you.

If you ingest too much toxic material, you most likely won’t just feel unwell in your stomach. Headaches, sinus and breathing problems, chronic fatigue and a weakened immune system are very likely as well.

There are blood tests available that screen for toxins and when combined with a complete analysis of your food sources and environmental surroundings, it’s possible to identify changes in your life that will make you feel a lot better.

4 – Stress

The main hormone associated with stress is cortisol. It’s a vital hormone for your immune system and metabolism, but mental and physical stress can disrupt the cortisol cycle.
As a result, you won’t just suffer from a weakened immune system, but also from inflammation in the digestive

system. This, in turn, can cause either constipation or diarrhea, with both of these symptoms also resulting in nausea and sickness.

During your consultation, your doctor will analyze your lifestyle and possibly run some tests to check your cortisol levels. The results can then be used to come up with a plan of action to rebalance your hormone levels and get you back on track to feeling great.

5 – Digestive Disturbances

There are many factors that can cause digestive disturbances, but the most common cause is a poor or badly balanced diet. This can go unnoticed for a long time until you’re no longer able to fully break down food and absorb all the nutrients you need.

The resulting sick feeling can become the norm and is down to a combination of diarrhea, constipation, heartburn and bacterial imbalances. A full analysis of your food intake can often resolve this problem by introducing you to a new meal plan.
