What Are The Leading (And Surprising) Causes Of Fatigue?

I’ve discovered fourteen causes for fatigue. Inside my book, “Reclaim Your Energy and Feel Normal Again!” I delve into the first eight on my list, since they apply to the majority of you suffering with fatigue.

Here they are for you. I call this is my Basic Fatigue List.

  1. Anemia
  2. Thyroid Problems
  3. Cortisol Imbalance
  4. Blood Sugar Imbalance
  5. Nutrient Deficiencies
  6. Chronic Infections
  7. Hidden Food Allergies & Sensitivities
  8. Brain Imbalance

Besides “fatigue factors” #1 and #2, the rest of this list is in no particular order of importance. A good history can help point the right direction to go next (Read my article “How to be a Health Detective: Learn the Strategy the Functional Medicine Docs Use”).

Also, it’s rare that just one factor on this list is causing the fatigue. Most of the time, there are multiple issues that need to be addressed on the list—usually three or four (or more!) need to be addressed. There’s no cookie-cutter protocol to treat fatigue!

So it’s wise to work with a functional medicine doctor, especially one who specializes in fatigue, to guide you in the right direction for your case.

Otherwise, you’ll most likely waste a lot of time and money.

Make a promise to yourself starting today:

Stop feeling lousy…rotten…awful…crummy…miserable…terrible…crappy.

Find a good Functional Medicine doctor to help you get to the root cause of your health problems.

Like I always say:

Find the cause.

Fix the cause.

Feel normal again!
