Let’s face it, we all experience some degree of physical fatigue, brain fog, and emotional strain as a natural byproduct of living in today’s world.
Whether you’re sleeping poorly, eating unhealthy foods, being sedentary, or have an underlying medical condition, a little fatigue can have a big impact on our day-to-day quality of life.
Fatigue can be the result of a number of causes, from insomnia to nutrient depletion to hormonal dysregulation to chronic stress, and the list goes on.
Fatigue is by far the most common ailment I see and treat in practice. We start by engaging in a thorough medical history, physical exam, and laboratory assessment. Once this baseline information is gathered, I work closely with the patient to develop a treatment strategy that is unique to their case. This may include lifestyle and dietary modifications, supplementation, and acupuncture.
Here are common conditions leading to fatigue that I treat regularly:
- Allergies, asthma, and sinusitis
- Hormonal dysregulations like hypothyroidism, diabetes, and adrenal fatigue
- Nutrient deficiencies or drug-induced nutrient depletions (vitamin D, vitamin B12, iron, CoQ10, magnesium, etc)
- Digestive disturbances
- Poor stress management
- Chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia
- Chronic or recurrent infections
