So I overdid things physically on Thursday, because I was feeling so good I thought I could. Much like where I used to be with my blood sugar (at some point in the last year or two, I stopped feeling hunger and began to react instead with extreme fatigue which I grew to realize meant I needed to eat — and that has improved significantly since the diet), I don’t seem to get or read my body’s signals of tiredness until after I have completely exhausted some mechanism for energy production in my body. So when I finished up doing the (never-ending) amount of work I was doing, without apparently much fatigue, 10 or 15 minutes later, I was hit with extreme fatigue that is taking days to shake.
Without any actual science to back it up, I wonder if this fatigue is related to mitochondrial stress and dysfunction and whether supplements that make the mitochondria more efficient might be helpful. N-acetyl cysteine, L-carnitine, Lipoic Acid, Co-Q and D-ribose are recommended to support the function of the mitochondria. I’m already taking plenty of supplements so I didn’t want to add more in unless there was some evidence it would truly help. Has anyone found any research to support the use of these in candida recovery?
