Every day we’re asked the same question: How can I get more energy? There’s a serious problem in our society today with more and more people suffering from major fatigue issues.
Are you frustrated by the lack of real help being offered by institutional medicine? Do you find that your Doctor’s not interested in discussing your problems with fatigue?
Good news! We’re here to help! We’ve worked with many patients whose main complaint is chronic fatigue. These patients, in the past, were offered sleep medication or anti-depressants; suggesting that this issue is caused by lack of sleep or that it’s probably all in their head!
We ask an entirely different question: At some point in your life, has there been a fundamental shift in your health?
Think back to a time when your health and energy were intact. We often find a pivotal shift in our patient’s lives when fatigue started taking over. Sometimes it’s hard to remember when you had energy, got a good night’s sleep and woke up feeling ready to take on the day– but at one point you had your health and control of your life. But not now.
Warning: Reaching for more sugar or more caffeine will only make the problem worse in the long run. The short term benefits will fade quickly leaving you with even less energy. You need to get to the cause and find a real sustainable solution.
So how do you return to that place of health and vitality?
We have to look deep– very deep. We need a structured plan to overcome the reason behind the fatigue.
Here’s how we successfully approach chronic fatigue. This diagram shows how addressing neurologic, structural and metabolic issues at the same time allows us to identify problems and create an organized plan for fixing what we find.
Our therapy structure
Chronic fatigue can be a tricky condition that requires much more than patching up the symptoms with medications or simple tests that you’ve received from institutional medicine.
Our journey starts by gathering information and taking a thorough history. Asking the right questions can go a long way to discovering where to look. Next, we need to perform a functional examination that takes into account structural stress and neurologic health. Why structure? Ever look at a person who is depressed? What is their body language? Slumped, head down, shoulders rolled inward. How about a person who is full of energy and happy? Shoulders back, head up, chest out, etc.
You get the picture…structural and body alignment are a window into function and a potential means to helping correct the fatigue problem.
Poor body alignment and muscle tension are energy drainers. That’s just one area to look when unraveling the chronic fatigue mystery.
After gathering all this information we may need to run specialty tests that tell us how your metabolism is working.
