Underlying Issues Of Fatigue

Author: Suzanne Wirth Date: 2015-01-28

People experience fatigue all of the time. You know the feeling; it is when you have no motivation for anything, even if it sparks your interest. For most people fatigue can come and go on a regular basis generally from exerting too much energy.

For a select few however, fatigue can be an underlying issue with your health and how you choose to go through daily life. For instance what we choose to consume for food can have a great impact on life and how you feel each day. If we make positive choices in the food we eat we will have a better outcome on how the day unfolds and how we get through it. A lot of people I talk to say, “just another cup of coffee will help me get through this tiredness that I just can’t shake.” Coffee will perk you up a little bit but it will not last all day.

Another thing to be mindful of is your overall health. Sometimes a simple blood test from your primary care provider can tell you all you need to know about what is going on in your body. In New York our winters are very long and people do not get to go outside because it is so cold. This can result in being vitamin d deficient. When a person is lacking vitamin d it makes you feel as though you do not want to move. A simple over the counter vitamin d pill can help if you have been diagnosed by a doctor . I recommend that people get regular blood screen so they can get to the root of the problem.

If your blood work gets done and there is nothing wrong with it then, take a deep look at what you are doing each day, and what you are eating.

With a little patience fatigue can be managed it just take a little time to find out what is truly going on. Don’t give up.
