Fatigue is the number one, most common symptom that clients come to us for. This can mean different things to different people. You may be completely exhausted or you may be wired, living on your adrenalin, but underneath your body is fighting to stay above afloat. Being tired in the morning and being unable to switch off at night, causing insomnia, are some of the side effects of this. This negative cycle can worsen over time, as the body becomes more depleted and this can lower the immune system and lead to a virus. With fatigue and tiredness also comes a potential for feeling down or depression with feelings of overwhelm, tension, irritability or anxiety.
Your fatigue and tiredness may be happening for many reasons, for example, it could be that you have continued to keep going when your body was crying out for a rest which has started to deplete your body of nutrients and upset the balance of several hormones in your body. Alternatively, your tiredness may be due to a gut pathogen, causing your body to get very fatigued and contributing to other symptoms of bloating and digestive issues. These are just two of the ways that fatigue can strike. You may have a combination of these issues.
