Upgrade Your Energy with a Hormone-Gut-Immune Trifecta

Dr. Amy Shah

Find out why you’re so effing tired and how to reset your body systems and energy levels.


In this "Best of" Episode of The Human Upgrade™...

… Dr. Amy Shah’s approach to managing energy struck a chord with listeners.

Dr. Shah, a double board-certified physician, searched for a complete mental, hormonal, and inflammatory reset after she experienced a car accident and personal energy crisis.

And while she uses an integrative and holistic approach to wellness in her medical practice, what she learned about energy and fatigue connected a lot of dots.

Regulating the “energy trifecta­,” made up of balanced hormones, a well-functioning gut, and a healthy immune system, makes all the difference. (She’s also an expert in circadian rhythm fasting.) 

“What you eat and how your gut communicates is the key to fatigue and getting your energy back.”

Dr. Amy Shah

“These three areas communicate, and they talk to the brain constantly,” says Dr. Shah, who studied and trained at Cornell, Columbia, and Harvard Universities. “And if any of those are broken, then you’re going to be tired. And so things like short fasting, circadian fasting, sinking with nature and circadian rhythms, which is our internal clock and eating the right foods really can make a difference. And of course, there’s this whole component of mind, body health, which we sorely miss in Western culture.”

What you eat, when you eat and mind-body health rule your energy patterns and likely could be the root cause of your fatigue. She lays out solutions in her book, “I’M SO EFFING TIRED: A Proven Plan to Beat Burnout, Boost Your Energy, and Reclaim Your Life.”
