Does exercise wear you out instead of give you energy? Are you even able to exercise like you did in the past? Do you become winded if you run up a flight of stairs? Do you get lightheaded or dizzy if you stand up too quickly from the bed or a chair? Do you experience brain fog or difficulty remembering simple instructions?
Chronic Fatigue can have many different underlying causes, and is a more and more common diagnosis, often alongside fibromyalgia, depression, or other conditions that leave people with little answers.
When clients come to me with these symptoms, I am looking at it from all angles, to uncover their root cause (or causes), so we can address these imbalances in the body, and give the person their life back!
The most common reasons for Chronic Fatigue
The most common reasons for Chronic Fatigue, are often glossed over, or never mentioned at all in the doctors office. And in many cases, clients have more than one of these contributing factors. These contributing factors lead to a decreased quality of life, that is most often completely reversible!
Low iron levels can cause unrelenting fatigue and weakness. People will often say they feel "winded" if they exert themselves, and sometimes feel they "can"t get enough air" or want to lay down a lot. The truth is, iron anemia is a condition where you don"t have enough healthy red blood cells to carry oxygen to the body"s tissues, so you are literally starved of oxygen.
B12/ Folate Anemia
Folate Anemia occurs when there is insufficient B12 or folate to cause red blood cells to mature or when there is any kind of dysfunction in the process of creating and then recycling red blood cells. The result is fatigue, memory impairments, and overall low energy. Many functional practitioners consider anemia as the "deal breaker" if you have it in any form, it needs to be corrected before any other true healing can be achieved.
Our adrenal glands are our glands of stress, and they are involved in the processes of and recovery from most chronic illnesses. These little glands play an enormous role in our overall health, our stress resiliency, energy, endurance, and our very life depend on their proper functioning! Your adrenals significantly affect the functioning of every tissue, organ, and gland in your body, and they also have important effects on the way you think and feel. Chronic Fatigue is one of a few conditions that particularly stand out as having an adrenal component.
Your thyroid gland and adrenal glands are two ends of the same stick! If your adrenal glands are fatigued, they will always drag down the function of your thyroid gland. It is nearly impossible to fully heal thyroid function when you haven"t addressed low functioning adrenals. Hypothyroid (low thyroid function), is a very common cause of fatigue, since our thyroid gland has a primary effect on our overall energy production.
Your mitochondria are tiny "organelles" inside every cell in your body. Your mitochondria generate 90% of your body"s energy, and power the cells to perform vital functions. Mitochondrial dysfunction starts the beginning of a number of diseases, including cancer, and a common initial symptom is fatigue, as these tiny structures struggle to produce energy. Nourishing the mitochondria can relieve brain starvation is people with cognitive impairment.
