You are the Tired Type

Tired Types are a bit like flat tires. Deflation is not a permanent condition, but they just can’t be their usual selves as long as they are out of air.


The Tired Type

From a Chinese medicine perspective, we refer to this type as kidney “yang” deficiency. Tired Types are prone to a sluggish metabolism & insulin sensitivity, which can unbalance reproductive hormones. The resulting low progesterone can lead to a short luteal phase, spotting at the end of the cycle, or low progesterone levels that affect embryo implantation.

Here is some advice for Tired Types to bring your body back into balance:

  • Take Activate, our Herbal Formula for the Tired Type
  • Reduce stress & stay active, but avoid excessive exercise
  • Consider adding L-Arginine and Chaste Tree Berry to your routine
  • Avoid cold and raw foods, instead consume warming foods
  • Consider using a BBT Thermometer to track your cycle
