Do you have difficulty getting out of bed in the morning?
Does your energy take a plunge by 3pm?
Do you ever feel "wired" at bedtime even though you are tired?
Do you suffer from poor concentration or "brain fog"?
If this sounds familiar, we want you to know that there is help for you. Fatigue is a common reason for patients to seek our care.
There are many factors that can lead to fatigue, including low thyroid function, stress, anemia, nutrient deficiencies and insomnia.
Another cause of fatigue common in our society is due to adrenal fatigue. Adrenal fatigue is the result of prolonged excessive demand on the adrenal glands. You can think of the adrenal glands as the command centre for the stress response. They produce adrenaline, the hormone responsible for giving us a jolt of energy needed to evade a dangerous situation. However, more and more we are experiencing prolonged periods of stress (traffic, work deadlines, bills, sick children, etc) in our overtaxed lives. Over time, this leads to depleted adrenal glands and our ability to respond to stress also suffers. Fatigue, anxiety, irritability, muscle aches, insomnia and food cravings can be a result of this state.
Whether you have adrenal fatigue, nutrient deficiencies or insomnia, we offer laboratory testing to get to the root of your fatigue. From there you will receive targeted natural therapies to help restore your energy.
