Fatigue & Functional Medicine Treatment
If you’re feeling tired all the time and find yourself wanting to snooze more than usual, Functional Medicine and clinical nutrition can help restore your energy by understanding the underlying issues and root causes that cause fatigue.
Exhaustion and low energy are often a result of what’s happening on the inside, or sometimes, the lack of what’s happening. Fatigue is an early communication signal from the body that something is amiss, but the causes of fatigue vary greatly from person to person.
- Feeling weak
- constantly tired
- Lack of energy.
- Weight loss or weight gain
- Chest pain and shortness of breath
- Vomiting and diarrhea
- Fevers and chills
- Muscle weakness or pain
- Anxiety and depression.
While it’s normal to slow down or feel overworked on occasion, fatigue can be your bodies way of communicating a warning signal that something further needs to be identified. Our functional medicine doctors know what is functional medicine and can offer comprehensive fatigue treatment and solutions for patients seeking help with everything from general or mild fatigue to the causes of severe fatigue syndrome which can include adrenal fatigue, chronic fatigue syndrome, and fibromyalgia.
