Energy/Stamina

What Causes Poor Stamina?

Poor stamina can have various causes, ranging in severity from 'troubling' to 'very serious'.  Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.

Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms.  In order to diagnose poor stamina, we could:
  • Research the topic
  • Find a doctor with the time
  • Use a diagnostic computer system.
The process is the same, whichever method is used.

Step 1: List all Possible Causes

We begin by identifying the disease conditions which have "poor stamina" as a symptom.  Here are eight of many possibilities (more below):
  • Low Progesterone
  • Adrenal Fatigue
  • Low HGH
  • PMS C
  • Hypoglycemia
  • Low Female Testosterone
  • Phosphorus Deficiency
  • Candida / Yeast

Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist

We then identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
painful swallowing
history of many broken bones
temple-based headaches
painful menstrual cramps
darker/redder skin color
general flatulence
past general fungal/yeast infections
difficulty conceiving children
diffuse bone pain
being a lethargic person
frequent confusion/disorientation
fatigue definitely reduced by eating
... and more than 130 others

Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause

A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of poor stamina:
Cause Probability Status
Low HGH 98% Confirm
PMS C 28% Unlikely
Hypoglycemia 26% Unlikely
Low Progesterone 3% Ruled out
Low Female Testosterone 0% Ruled out
Phosphorus Deficiency 0% Ruled out
Candida / Yeast 0% Ruled out
Adrenal Fatigue 0% Ruled out
* This is a simple example to illustrate the process

Arriving at a Correct Diagnosis

The Analyst™ is our online diagnosis tool that learns all about you through a straightforward process of multi-level questioning, providing diagnosis at the end.

In the Metabolic Symptoms section of the questionnaire, The Analyst™ will ask the following question about energy/stamina:
How would you rate your physical stamina (ability to undertake prolonged exercise)?
Possible responses:
→ I have poor endurance
→ I'm about average / don't know
→ I have strong endurance
Based on your response to this question, which may indicate either low energy/stamina or high energy/stamina, The Analyst™ will consider possibilities such as:
Phosphorus Deficiency
Sodium phosphate or potassium phosphate is often used by endurance athletes in order to increase aerobic capacity and athletic performance.  Phosphates reduce the effects of lactic acid build-up in the muscles; they help make oxygen delivery to the muscles more efficient; they are used in the production of Adenosine Triphosphate (the chemical form of energy within cells) and Creatine Phosphate (an immediate energy store) and therefore are believed to increase the chemical energy stored within cells.
... and also rule out issues such as:
