Increasing your energy

A common complaint among people is that they have low energy. Having low energy, or fatigue, means that you are tired when you want to be doing something. If you are one of those people suffering from fatigue, please understand that there are multiple reasons for having low energy.

The many causes of fatigue, or low energy include:

  • Lack of quality sleep
  • Sleep apnea
  • Poor diet (especially high carb diets)
  • Not drinking enough water
  • Drinking excessive caffeine
  • Low B vitamin levels
  • Stress, Depression, Anxiety
  • High and Low Cortisol levels
  • Low Testosterone levels
  • Low Thyroid levels
  • Blood sugar fluctuations
  • Blood pressure fluctuations
  • Heart arrhythmias
  • Underlying infections
  • Anemia
  • Lack of exercise
  • Poor oxygen utilization

The list goes on….

If you suffer from low energy, it is advised to have blood work and an evaluation by a physician. If the initial evaluation is not helpful, instead of giving up you can get an integrative evaluation by a physician with additional training in anti-aging medicine. Your hormones and other aspects of health will be thoroughly evaluated. If needed, you can get a bio-energy test to further determine the underlying cause of your fatigue.

Feeling tired is not a fun way to live your life. The first step is to make sure that you eat a whole food diet, exercise regularly, breathe deeply, and give yourself time to get rest at night. As you address your lifestyle, have a complete evaluation to ensure that your health is optimized. With a little time and patience you can have the life that you desire and regain the energy to do the things that you enjoy.
