Low Energy or Fatigue

“I’m tired of feeling so tired!” I hear people say this every day. We all have had periods of feeling more tired than usual. We missed a few nights of sleep due to stress at work or the kids waking us up. But if your low energy days out number your good energy day this may be a sign that there is something else going on other than inadequate rest. You should not be dragging yourself through life. You should wake up feeling rested and ready to take on your day. You should not need caffeine or a nap to make it to dinner time. You deserve to feel better.

The most common causes of low energy are as follows:

• Insufficient good quality sleep (disrupted sleep structure)
• Adrenal dysfunction
• Food sensitivities
• Low thyroid function
• Anemia – low iron, low B12 or low folic acid
• Hormonal imbalances
• Blood sugar imbalances
• Low B Vitamins
• Low magnesium
• Excess body acidity
• Chronic infection – viral, bacterial or fungal, parasites
• Excessive toxic burden leading to mitochondrial dysfunction
• Low Vitamin D
• Sedentary lifestyle
• Depression
• Dehydration

As you can see there are many reasons why one’s energy may be lower than it should be. We will work together to determine and correct what factor(s) may be keeping you from feeling like a million bucks.
