Fatigue is not something you should live with – it is a symptom of something wrong in your body. Unfortunately, many traditional or Western medicine doctors are poor at finding the cause of such vague symptoms, but that does not make them any less real. If you have fatigue, there is something causing your lack of energy. Here are some tips to find the cause and fight your fatigue naturally.
One reason you may feel fatigued is a hormonal imbalance. Men and women suffer from lack of hormones that can lead to fatigue and other symptoms. Men in their thirties, forties and beyond can have drops in their testosterone that can impact their energy levels. Women can also have hormonal changes that make them feel tired. Getting tested for hormone levels is one option to find the cause of your fatigue.
Food Sensitivities, Allergies and Intolerances
It may be the foods you are eating that is causing your fatigue. If you are allergic, sensitive or intolerant to gluten or other food items, it can impact many different systems in the body. Feel lethargic is one symptom of food sensitivities, especially if it is combined with other symptoms.
Is your thyroid functioning correctly? Fatigue can be a sign of thyroid issues. Blood tests can check for thyroid health indicators.
Lack of Vital Nutrients
Sometimes fatigue is caused by a simple lack of certain nutrients. A nutritional assessment by a naturopathic doctor can determine whether you are lacking in nutrients that are affecting your energy levels.
There are natural options for treating these common causes of fatigue, including hormone therapy, food sensitivity treatment, thyroid support and nutritional supplements. Visit your local naturopathic physician to find the cause of your fatigue and learn how to fight it naturally.
