Chronic Fatigue Q&A

What is chronic fatigue?

Chronic fatigue makes you feel tired all the time, and you constantly need to push yourself just to get through the day. You might be relying on stimulants like coffee to keep you going, or find you have to take naps through the day. Chronic fatigue can become so severe you feel exhausted simply walking downstairs after getting out of bed.

General fatigue is a common complaint and is often due to leading a busy lifestyle. However, if you're feeling fatigued all the time and it's affecting your ability to function, it could be a symptom of an underlying problem. Even if you only get fatigued now and then, Live Well Wellness Center offers some effective pick-me-ups to restore your energy levels.

What causes chronic fatigue?

There are many possible causes of chronic fatigue. Some of the more common ones include:

  • Stress
  • Thyroid disorders
  • Insulin resistance and diabetes
  • Chronic viral or bacterial infections
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Hormone imbalances
  • Food intolerances
  • Sleep disorders
  • Adrenal fatigue

Many people suffer from stress now and then, which is normal and causes cortisol levels to rise to help your body cope. Stress becomes a problem when you can't escape the causes, and your body is continually flooding with cortisol.

Adrenal fatigue describes a variety of states that occur on the road to adrenal exhaustion. During the various stages of adrenal fatigue, levels of hormones and neurotransmitters (another type of chemical messenger in your brain) can vary dramatically.

​​​​​​​It's one of the causes of fatigue that often gets missed by conventional medicine, but the naturopathic medical doctors at Live Well Wellness Center are experts in using lab tests to identify your stage of adrenal fatigue.

How is chronic fatigue treated?

Whatever the cause of your chronic fatigue, Live Well Wellness Center offers effective solutions. First, they take blood to test for the underlying cause of your fatigue. Then they design a treatment program that tackles these root causes. Some of the therapies they use include:

  • Diet and lifestyle changes
  • Natural hormone replacement therapy
  • XYMOGEN® supplements
  • Herbal remedies
  • Vitamin infusions
  • Ozone therapy
  • Hydrogen peroxide
  • Peptides

With the right treatment, you can see a dramatic change in your energy levels and feel years younger.
