Are You Sick of Being Tired?

There can be many causes of fatigue, but one thing is fairly consistent:  it strongly impacts all of your activities, and the very quality of your life.

Fatigue is the absence of energy, vigor, and the drive that was once your’s.  Whatever your definition, it is intolerable, and conventional diagnostic and treatment methods do not address what is becoming an epidemic problem.   Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) affects 1 out of every 544 people in North America, 80% of whom are women.  Fatigue can be a feature of many other health problems, as well as a significant “disease” in itself.  Quite frankly, it is the biggest complaint amongst our patients, sometimes the main problem for someone seeking care, or as is often the case, secondary to other problems.

Common Causes of Chronic Fatigue

  • Hormone Imbalances (thyroid, adrenal, sex hormones, pancreatic hormones)
  • Prolonged exertion (mental or physical)
  • Injury, surgery, or other traumas
  • Infections (including altered intestinal bacteria)
  • Inadequate nutrition
  • Heavy metal and chemical toxicity
  • Blood sugar irregularities
  • Sleep difficulties
  • Fat that fails to “burn” (overweight and obesity)

Our Approach to the Treatment of Fatigue

At Pearl Natural Health, our approach to diagnosing and treating the causes of your chronic fatigue begins with comprehensive  diagnostics and proven therapies.   Through a complete metabolic assessment, detoxification regimen, improvement in nutrition, and treatment of any hormone imbalances, symptoms usually improve while causative factors are directly addressed

For cases that improve too slowly or with difficulty, we probe deeper to find the interference, and address it directly.

For more complete details about the treatment of chronic fatigue,  please call our clinic to arrange a complementary consultation.
