Fatigue So Bad She Slept Through Her 2 Week Vacation

Céline had suffered from fatigue since she was a teenager, but lately it took over her life. She would sleep 12 hours a night, and still wake up tired.

She went through her day thinking about sleep: “When can I go to sleep”, “How many more hours until I can go to bed”, “Where can I take a nap” were the thoughts that constantly ran through her head.

The fatigue was so bad that she took a 2 week vacation…and slept the whole time. This gave her energy for a week, and then the crushing fatigue came right back. That’s when she knew she “had to call Dr. Carri”.

It didn’t help that she was having night sweats that would wake her at least 20 times a night, and hot flashes that would drain her energy every hour of the day.

She had also gained weight, and was up 30 pounds. She had terrible cravings for sweets, and milk, and salty foods, and had absolutely no willpower at all. She wanted to exercise…but was too tired.

And to top it all off, her migraines were getting worse. Her migraines went from once a month to every other day! And she was feeling like Jekyll and Hyde – her mood would go from normal to rage to tears in seconds.

“I was pretty desperate for help. My doctor wanted to put me on more antidepressants, and I said no. I was so tired and depressed. It affected my whole life – my job, my family…everything. I had even lost my sense of humor! I couldn’t smile anymore!”

When Céline told me about taking a 2 week vacation just to sleep I knew I had to be pretty aggressive with her care. It was obvious to me that she had 2 main problems going on – hormonal imbalance and brain chemistry imbalance. Both can be treated with natural medicine. I usually fix one and then fix the other, but for Céline I had a gut feeling that we needed to test both and treat both at the same time.

“Dr. Carri understood me and believed me when I told her how I was feeling. She ran tests my doctor didn’t know to run and found the real underlying problems. Dr. Carri had me take all kinds of vitamins, and change my diet…I was very overwhelmed at first. But, I decided to let go of some things in my life that weren’t important so I could focus on my health. Dr. Carri was my cheerleader and gave me the answers I had been looking for!”

Investing in her health paid off big-time for Céline…

“My energy went from 2 out of 10, to 5 out of 10 in 8 weeks. And, my brain was working again! I felt intelligent and with it. Usually I needed to prepare for meetings, but I realized I no longer needed to do that. I went into a meeting with no time to prepare and I was totally fine! That’s when I knew my brain was back online! My food cravings were gone. Dr. Carri then had me start the Paleo Diet – I like to say Holy Paleo! I love it!

“Now I am 6 months into the program and my energy is 8 out of 10! I sleep really well. I have lost 8 pounds. No more hot flashes. No more migraines! Mood swings are better but still need some work. I am no longer on any medications!

“I have my courage back! Courage to do things…to say things…to make decisions…without being on the verge of breaking down to tears.

“My self esteem is back. I have confidence again!

“I can juggle more things at work and at home. I make better decisions. And, I have my sense of humor back!”

This is Céline’s advice for new patients just starting their treatment program with Dr. Carri:

“Know that there is hope. Stick with it. Be good to yourself. Concentrate on what is really important – your health! It isn’t cheap to see Dr. Carri, but the expense is worth it. I could have spent that money on a cruise, but I decided to spend it on my health. Now, I can actually take a cruise and enjoy myself!”
