If you feel tired constantly or suffer from low energy, it can be difficult to find the cause. Fatigue is a vague symptom and many family doctors are ill-equipped to diagnose this condition. They may order blood tests and look for any abnormalities, but without more to go on than one symptom, you may not get more than a suggestion to sleep more if lab tests do not reveal any glaring issues. You may get better results from seeing a naturopathic doctor or ND to get to the bottom of the cause of your fatigue.
Why See a ND?
When fatigue is your main symptom and there is not any diseases or illnesses found, an ND may look for answers where a family doctor may not. Disease or lack of sleep are not the only reasons you may feel tired; it can be a nutritional or hormonal issue that many western-medicine physicians will not consider. NDs have superior training in nutritional deficiencies or imbalances in the body that can make you feel tired and will look for causes in areas that other doctors are not trained to consider.
Many NDs use both lab tests and their nutritional training to discover imbalances in the body that can cause fatigue. One issue that can often cause a lack of energy is sensitivity or allergies to certain foods like gluten. Hormonal changes can also cause a person to have low energy levels. When traditional medicine does not offer answers to fatigue, it is worth seeking the help of an ND to explore other causes for this debilitating condition.
Fatigue can impact almost every aspect of your life. If you are tired of feeling tired, try a new approach to find answers by seeking the advice of a naturopathic doctor.
