“There are some ailments that only the doctors will take care of – but others they are ill equipped to deal with.
When my energy levels were low in comparison to my personal norm, with no good reason, I went to Alma in Amber who had been recommended to me by a friend.
I don’t understand how the kinetic method works but Alma allergy tested me, and gave me drops to help redress the balance – literally from the first dose I took I felt more energetic, more like myself. It took 2 further visits and various drops to be completely back on track. Since then I positively recommend my friends to Alma Green at The Amber Centre.”

What is Low Energy?
Low Energy is chareterised by constant tiredness and profound, overwhelming exhaustion, both mental and physical, which is worsened by exertion, and is not relieved by rest.
The fact is that doctors really don’t know the cause of Low Energy. It is known that the fatigue is characterized by a very slow recovery of muscle power. So, a moderate amount of exercise will involve at least two or three days of recovery for the person affected by very Low Energy. It is evidenced that those who develop the condition often have a recent history of viral infection, usually an upper respiratory infection such as a cold or flu, or a digestive tract problem that includes diarrhea and vomiting.
There are in fact Several possiblities that can cause Very Low Energy including:
• Iron deficiency anemia
• Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)
• History of allergies
• Virus infection, such as Epstein-Barr virus or human herpes virus 6
• Dysfunction in the immune system
• Changes in the levels of hormones produced in the hypothalamus, pituitary glands or adrenal glands
• Mild, chronic low blood pressure (hypotension)
It is only when you avail of The Amber Health Check that you will find the cause of the Tiredness.
The most common symptom is certainly constant tiredness and profound, overwhelming exhaustion, both mental and physical, which is worsened by exertion, and is not relieved by rest. There are many other symptoms that could be a part of this syndrome and the most common are:
Pain: Pain in this syndrome is very common and present in almost all cases.
It may include:
- muscle pain
- joint pain
- lymph node pain
- sore throats
- abdominal pain
Some patients have also experienced bone, eye and testicular pain, neuralgia and painful skin sensitivity.
Cognitive problems: This doesn’t happen very often but people with chronic fatigue syndrome may experience some cognitive problems and some of the most common symptoms are forgetfulness, confusion, difficulty thinking and concentration difficulties.Some experts have also reported possible aphasia, agnosia, loss of cognitive body map and other neurological symptoms.
Hypersensitivity: It is reported that some people with chronic fatigue syndrome are sensitive to light, sound, and some chemicals and foods.
Poor temperature control: Several studies have proven that people with this syndrome often have big problems with controlling their body temperature. For example, they report big temperature fluctuations. This is probably due to involvement of the hypothalamus whose malfunction may be the cause of the syndrome.
Sleep problems: One of the most common symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome is the un-refreshing sleep. Some people also report insomnia and difficulties in maintaining a sleep schedule.
Psychological symptoms: Some of the most common psychological problems are:
- emotional fluctuations
- emotional flattening
Experts still don’t know what the exact cause of these symptoms is.
Experts are saying that some abnormalities in the autonomic nervous system are very common. The most commonly reported are low blood volume, orthostatic intolerance, dizziness and light-headedness, especially when standing up quickly. Hormonal abnormalities may include abnormal vasopressin metabolism, abnormal ACTH response leading to hypothyroidism, reduced ability to respond to physiological and emotional stress.
There are several less frequent symptoms such as: abdominal pain, alcohol intolerance, bloating, chest pain, chronic cough, diarrhea, dizziness, dry eyes and mouth etc.
