Generalized malaise

“Generalized malaise” is another term for the medical “chronic fatigue syndrome” or what I have previously called “toxic lifestyle syndrome.”

There are 7 components:

  1. More toxins than the body can handle or an unbalanced toxic load (more than one particular organ or system can handle) – not so much of any one toxin as to attract the attention of toxicologists, who are trained to deal with one at a time. They have no bloody idea how to deal with either unbalanced toxic loads or total toxic loads, but the body has to deal with both of those, while toxicologists can sit back in their easy chairs pontificating about how we are handling the little toxicities of everyday life. Yes, we are dealing with each one more or less adequately, but we are not dealing with imbalances in the toxic loads or with the total toxicity weighting us down, down, down. Many of these wounds are self-inflicted. Some are dealt by cruel heartless Darwinian nature.
  2. The body cannot handle the total toxic load because of 6 critical deficiencies –
    1. Genetic – we all have these; some have worse than others.
    2. Quality sleep – we all have this. During quality sleep the CNS dumps most of its wastes
    3. Fasting – during periods of time when glucagon dominates insulin, the body recycles itself cellular component by cellular component and empties as much of its trash as it can.
    4. Nutrients – we all have personal and specific essential nutrient requirements, some of which we are not meeting, in part thanks to ridiculously inadequate measures that doctors use that make us believe everything is OK. We all have personal and specific conditionally essential nutrients. These we are unaware of and we can only hope to meet them by consuming a varied diet of real foods. Someday we will have functional assays of these important nutrient levels and we will be able to intelligently supplement some of these deficiencies.
    5. Exercise – deficiencies here are laughable. Exercise stimulates glucose uptake; helps fasting create additional glucose demand; stimulates recycling and rebuilding of tissues. Done properly, it is of obvious benefit.
    6. Mental health and well-being. We all suffer from deficiencies in so-called “executive functions” – some people painfully so, as their health is compromised by extremely illogical thinking.
