How Naturopathic Medicine Can Help With Fatigue

Have you suffered from fatigue (tiredness) at one point of your life?

If the answer to this question is yes, then let us see how to avoid or manage fatigue.

First of all, we need to know how our bodies get their energies. There are many factors that help energy production in our bodies such as adequate nutrition, sleep, good mood, vitamin D, thyroid hormones, and sufficient iron.

Imagine if any one or more of these elements are deficient, then your energy level will drop automatically. The drop in energy level depends on the degree of disturbance any of these elements develops and the speed of its drop.

Let's talk about sleep

Many people think that there is no relationship between sleep and energy. This is not true.

Did you remember when you sleep only a few interrupted hours in one night what do you feel next day? I think most of us know the answer, and if you know that at least 3.3 million Canadians suffer from sleep disorders at one point in their life, you can imagine the magnitude of this problem. So if you have fatigue and sleep disorder at the same time, you need to address the sleep issue before jumping to energy drinks / excess caffeine as a quick fix of the problem.

In naturopathic medicine, doctors do not treat only symptoms (such as low energy) but look at and address the root causes of the problem in order to solve the problem in an appropriate way.

Hope you enjoy a healthy life full of energy and productivity.
