Fatigue and How to Fix It
Extreme tiredness is quite common. It can present as part of a larger diagnosis (depression, fibromyalgia or autoimmune disorders) or from the body's inability to handle the current level of stress. Physical, nutritional and emotional stress may play a role in the root cause. Addressing the underlaying issues will assist us in resolving your energy issue.
According to Mayo Clinic "Unrelenting exhaustion, on the other hand, lasts longer, is more profound and isn't relieved by rest. It's a nearly constant state of weariness that develops over time and reduces your energy, motivation and concentration. Fatigue at this level impacts your emotional and psychological well-being, too."
The underlying cause of chronic fatigue is often missed. Many of medical tests do not accurately capture the extent of fatigue on the body. In fact, there are very few tests able to measure the response of the adrenal glands, an important hormone organ responsible for regulating overall energy level.
"Adrenal fatigue is one of the most under diagnosed health conditions since diagnosis cannot be done by blood work. Specific in-office tests can identify adrenal dysfunction. It is a very real condition responsible for extreme fatigue, lethargy and other related symptoms." - Dr. Rob Demartino
