Are you lacking in energy? Lethargic? Unmotivated? Always tired at the end of the day? As a naturopath treating fatigue, Lynne Goldstein can offer an effective solution. In her experience as a naturopath in Sydney, stress is often found to be a cause of fatigue for many people. However, frequent exhaustion can also be due to a number of other issues such as:
- Iron deficiency
- Blood sugar imbalance
- Insufficient nutrients for energy production
- Adrenal exhaustion
- Post-viral syndrome, EBV. Human herpes virus-6
- Glandular fever
- Latent or prolonged infection
- Eating the wrong foods
- Drinking too much coffee, especially before eating
- Poor digestion or assimilation
- Toxic overload
- MTHFR polymorphism (a genetic enzyme deficiency)
Effects of stress, anxiety and depression are other factors which deplete energy reserves. Anxiety and depression may be caused by neurotransmitter imbalances, which can be determined by special pathology tests and then corrected with specific supplements.
At View to Health, we can arrange metabolic, hormone and genetic testing to ascertain the cause of your fatigue. We then provide a treatment protocol, which may include detoxification and adrenal support together with an appropriate diet, to improve your energy levels.
