Mama Tenza I’m tired, seriously always tired, grumpy, moody, no sex drive, depressed. I’m miserable! What’s wrong with me? I have super high moods then super low moods. I don’t wanna eat but then that makes me weak. I just feel yakki.
Tired N’ Pop Dung

I can’t say enough how diet and nutrition contribute to our woes. Sounds like your magnesium level is low dear. Magnesium deficiency can produce symptoms of:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle weakness and pain
  • Insomnia
  • Poor memory
  • Anger
  • Confusion
  • Nervousness

Foods rich in magnesium are:

  • Spinach
  • Dark cocoa powder (Dark chocolate)
  • Almond
  • Banana
  • Molasses
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Avocado
  • Black beans
  • Cashew
  • Swiss chard
  • Flax seeds
  • Okra

Fill a tub with warm water (or get a bath pan), put 8 oz of Epsom salt and relax for 15 minutes in it. Your body needs this mineral to help regulate your nervous system, muscle relaxation and flexion. It also helps to regulate heart function. Start taking magnesium supplements and get an aromatherapy massage dear. (Did you know Mama Tenza is a certified massage therapist? Set your appointment early and I’ll give you a discount).

Lavender, chamomile, lemon and ylang ylang are great scents that awaken endorphins (feel-good chemicals) you can get these in essential oils or in the form of incense sticks. Surround yourself with people who make you feel “cheerful and alive”. Banish your “tired and pop dung” feeling and continue to live well!
