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 DHEA
  • Iron Deficiency Anemia
  • Low Pregnenolone
  • PMS C
  • Low HGH
  • Low Progesterone
  • Food Allergies
  • Phosphorus Deficiency

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:
weak appetite
occasional episodes of diarrhea
pear-shaped body when overweight
tongue swelling
reduced well-being during menopause
major fatigue for 3-12 months
history of broken bones
rapidly declining health
history of adolescent acne
onion intolerance
severe epigastric pain
painful menstrual cramps
... and more than 100 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 Pregnenolone 96% Confirm
PMS C 24% Unlikely
Food Allergies 24% Unlikely
Low DHEA 4% Ruled out
Iron Deficiency Anemia 2% Ruled out
Phosphorus Deficiency 1% Ruled out
Low HGH 0% Ruled out
Low Progesterone 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.
