Energy and resilience!

Get to the root of your fatigue

Low energy, fatigue on waking, and difficulty sleeping can have a huge toll on your health and your enjoyment of life. It's time to get to the roots of your issues, rev up your mitochondria (the energy powerhouses in your cells) and feel alive - instead of like hibernating!

The stresses of our global world are unavoidable. But you are resilient. Learn how to cultivate resilience in your body.

Especially changing into colder seasons, giving extra support to your body is essential for immune resilience.

Fatigue can be caused by chronic stress and a variety of other root issues that can affect vitamin levels (deficiencies in B12, vitamin D, folate or iron can all cause significant fatigue), increase inflammation (with associated effects in your gut, joints or brain) and reduce overall quality of life (and quality of sleep!).​

If you suffer from fatigue, consider investigating for:

  • Anemia and hormonal imbalances (consider: endometriosis, fibroids, irregular or heavy periods, intense PMS symptoms)

  • Perimenopause or Menopause (hormonal changes begin around 10 years pre-menopause)

  • Food sensitivities

  • Thyroid disease

  • Autoimmune conditions (including ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, celiac disease, rheumatoid arthritis and more)

  • Inflammation in the gut, joints, or brain for other reasons

  • Vitamin or nutrient deficiencies 

A naturopathic investigation of your fatigue will consider you as a whole person. Treatments vary depending on the root cause, but commonly include herbal recommendations and individualized acupuncture.
