Nutritional Support For Fatigue
Vitamin/Mineral/Fatty Acid/Amino Acid Deficiencies
Deficiencies of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and fatty acids is relatively common is our society. The combination of poor diets, deficient soils, high stress and lunatic weight loss schemes can often lead to deficiencies in one or more of these basic nutrients. You can address these areas by taking a high quality, broad spectrum multiple vitamin, mineral and fish oil or you can test each of these areas to find out whether you are deficient in any of these nutrients. With testing you can target your individual needs.
You can run individual tests or, to save money, recommend the Comprehensive Metabolic Profile.
The Many Causes of Fatigue
Fatigue can have many causes. Overcoming fatigue, on a consistent basis requires that the underlying causes be understood and addressed. Below you will find the most common causes of fatigue. Generally when these areas are addressed energy levels come up and the feelings of vitality and well being increase.
In our clinic we ask a number of questions on every visit to asses the overall subjective experience of health and well being. These questions are on a scale of 1-10 with 7 being what we consider good health. Many of our patients come to us because their subjective experience of energy and vitality is below 7, often below 4.
If your energy levels are below 7/10 or if you want to raise your energy levels even higher then you may want to consider the following areas. The list is not exhaustive but does cover the vast majority of cases.
- Adrenal Fatigue & Adrenal Exhaustion
- Blood Sugar Imbalances
- Food Allergies and Gluten Sensitivity
- Heavy Metals
- Hormone Depletion
- Mitochondrial Dysregulation
- Neurotransmitter Exhaustion
