Fatigue is a symptom, rather than a specific disease or disorder. It is characterized by persistent tiredness. Most people who experience fatigue feel tired all the time, with no relief. This constant state of tiredness affects them in many ways, including physically, emotionally, and mentally. Fatigue is often attributed to a physiological process that is not operating optimally, which is sometimes called adaptive physiology. Most commonly, fatigue is associated with metabolic dysfunctions. Once the dysfunction is addressed, the fatigue is relieved, and the energy renewed.
Underlying Conditions Leading to Low Energy
In general, fatigue, or the lack of natural energy, is caused by an underlying condition or disease. A combination of conditions or diseases can also cause fatigue. The most common causes of fatigue are hyper- or hypothyroidism, diabetes, both type I and II, adrenal fatigue or adrenal insufficiency, malabsorption/malnutrition, metabolic syndrome, hormonal imbalances, and inborn errors of metabolism.
Stimulating the Self-Healing Process
The good news is that once the underlying cause is determined, naturopathic treatments have a high success rate of eliminating fatigue and restoring the body’s sense of wellness. The most critical determinants in reversing fatigue for a patient is removing the obstacles to a cure, stimulating the self-healing process, supporting the appropriate organs and organ systems, and stimulating functional systems such as the immune system.
