Feeling Tired After Meals or Lunch Means Low Body Oxygen
By Dr. Artour Rakhimov, Alternative Health Educator and Author - Last updated on August 9, 2018
Are you tired after eating? As
we discussed before, night sleep is generally the most negative factor that
increases breathing and reduces body-oxygen levels. The following most
damaging factor is eating or meals, especially large ones. You can easily
prove that eating dramatically reduces your body-oxygen content using a simple
body-oxygen test (see the links below). It is a common effect
that body-oxygen test results are reduced by
up to 50% or 10 seconds due to ineffective breathing.
Consequently, most people feel tired
after eating. What are causes and the mechanism?
Overeating causes a serious biochemical shock
on the whole organism due to factors related to heavy breathing (or breathing
more than the medical norm). Heavy breathing reduces CO2 in the blood and that
causes constriction of blood vessels (see the image below) and the suppressed Bohr effect
(less oxygen is released in tissues). Both effects cause tissue hypoxia and
feeling tired after eating.
exhaustion after eating and even getting drowsy and falling asleep after meals
or a good lunch are typical signs of this biochemical shock. This effect of tiredness
after eating lunch or other meals is much stronger after eating less nutritious food
or junk food and especially overeating.
We start to generate free radicals in body cells causing
oxidative stress or damage to tissues when the body-oxygen levels drop
below 20 seconds.
People with normal breathing parameters (or with more than 40 seconds for
the body-oxygen test) do not feel exhaustion after eating and can do light
physical exercise, like walking or gardening, with no problems. Furthermore,
normal breathing also means fast digestion or about 2 hours to digest a
normal or regular meal.
The same meal for a sick individual (e.g., with about 15 seconds for less for the CP or the body oxygen
test) usually require about 1-2 hours more to get digested.
The sick person would usually need a rest after a meal.
Dealing with fatigue after eating
The answer is simple: people used to have about 40-50 seconds for body
O2. With such O2 levels, people crave physical exercise and do not feel
tired after eating.
Feeling tired after meals, overbreathing, and obesity
Many modern people, especially obese ones, feel sleepy and tired after eating.
This is due to ineffective breathing patterns. The answer to this common problem
and the most natural remedy for obesity is to slow down their breathing and achieve
more than a certain number (in seconds) for the body-oxygen test.
This number (that guarantees good energy levels and freedom from fatigue after meals) is provided right below here as your bonus content. It is less than 40-50 seconds mentioned above and below on this page.

Any time an overweight person eats complex carbohydrates or fats, his body-oxygen
levels and breathing immediately become much worse. Furthermore, hunger
for starches and fats indicate a state of stress and low body oxygen with a
higher heart rate. That immediately leads to feeling tired

While overbreathing and low body O2 are prime causes of feeling tired and
fatigued after meals, a common immediate cause of this problem can be Candida yeast
infection or iodine deficiency. In cases of Candida, a person gets fatigue
after eating sweet things like table sugar or fruits. There are also symptoms
of iodine deficiency and a simple iodine test that you can find on this
site (maybe now) or online.
