Are you feeling so fatigued that even light movement or trying to get through your day can be a chore?
Perhaps you are feeling extremely stressed or anxious because you can't perform well at work and aren't able to support your family like you used to?
Or do you experience "mystery aches and pains" that are slowing you down... which your doctor explains away as "old age"?
The truth is chronic fatigue is a blanket diagnosis when doctors don't the have tools or know-how to get to the bottom of your symptoms, which are typically multiple-factorial in nature. While they may do a physical exam or basic bloodwork, both can miss more serious health imbalances.
The conventional approach to treating chronic fatigue is focused on the emotional and mindset spectrum of treatment, all while the physiological root causes go undetected. Oftentimes, doctors will prescribe antidepressants when they don't see anything obvious in your blood work and can't give you answers about your symptoms.
Sadly, the label of chronic fatigue is given while something more serious is spiraling out of control and is now impacting hormonal balance, brain health, and even cellular health which causes chronic fatigue.
Some of the imbalances that may be at play can include gut dysbiosis such as SIBO, leaky gut, and/or Candida overgrowth. A poor diet, stealth infections, an undiagnosed food allergy, hormone imbalances, or exposure to environmental toxins like mold are other potential causes of chronic fatigue that are completely overlooked in the conventional treatment approach.
When it comes to chronic fatigue syndrome, it’s important to work with a functional medicine practitioner who can not only help with the mindset/emotional component but also runs the correct testing to determine if gut disorders, food allergies, or other imbalances are to blame for your chronic fatigue symptoms.
