Do you find it difficult to get out of bed in the mornings? Feel like sitting all the time when you're awake. Feel drained after a mental or physical task? And, no matter how much you try and rest, you're still tired?
These are some of the common symptoms of chronic fatigue.
If you've been to a doctor, they've probably checked for some nutrient deficiencies, food intolerances, allergies, diabetes or heart disease.
But, if you're still feeling drained, consider asking your doctor to check for one of the six triggers below...
4 Things for which your doctor may not have tested, that could be draining your energy...
Your thyroid - even if your GP has tested you before
This little gland is a major culprit when it comes to chronic fatigue
. Unfortunately, if you've been tested by a GP, you may not have got the full story when it comes to your thyroid test results. See an endocrinologist who will test for free triiodothyronine, reverse triiodothyronine, and triiodothyronine/reverse-triiodothyronine ratios for better accuracy.
Your adrenal glands - even if your doctor has assured you it's not this
Most mainstream doctors still deny that adrenal fatigue
is a real condition. But if you're struggling to get through each day, you'll know it's very real. Even if your doctor has convinced you the reason you're feeling tired has nothing to do with your adrenal glands, find an Integrative Doctor or naturopath who is willing to test your cortisol/DHEA ratio, 17-HP/cortisol ratio, your neurotransmitters, postural blood pressure
and your iris contractions. Find out more about adrenal fatigue here.
Bacterial, yeast and critter induced infections
We all have millions of bacteria and yeast living in our intestines. But, if you've had a temporary slide in immune responses, or if you've taken antibiotics ever in your life, chances are your gut flora could be out of balance. Unfortunately, it's one of the last things doctors check for - yet, it's a growing concern for doctors trained in Natural Medicine, who actually do test your gut flora. You can even do one of these tests at home today to find out if one of these common culprits is zapping your energy.
