The 5 Sneaky Culprits Behind Why You Feel So Exhausted All The Time

Are you suffering from adrenal burnout and fatigue? Low thyroid function? Chronic fatigue or Fibromyalgia?

Do you have as much energy as you'd like to have?

overcoming chronic fatigueImagine for a Moment: What would you do if you had more energy?

Think about what it would be like  to pop out of bed in the morning, bright, cheery and ready for the day.

As you go through your day, you feel energized by your food, your conversations, your work and your activities. When asked by a friend or family member to participate in a fun evening activity, you always say yes, without fear of losing steam at the end of the day, and being too tired to to do much more than flop on the couch.

You participate in activities you love, eat healthy meals, exercise and are fully present for your relationships. You never hear yourself utter the words, “I'm too tired.”  Instead you say, “I feel so energized.”

Sound like a romantic fiction novel? This life is possible for you, IF you know where to look…

Fatigue, exhaustion, tiredness, weariness, low energy…whatever you choose to call it, a serious problem and it happens to real people like you. There are many causes. Some are obvious, others not so obvious. When I asked at one of my workshops for a show of hands of people who felt that they were fatigued, or had low energy–all but 1 or 2 people raised their hands.

Then I proceeded to give one of my favorite definitions of fatigue. The definition goes something like this:

Fatigue: The decreased capacity or complete inability of an organism, an organ, or a part to function normally because of excessive stimulation or prolonged exertion.

I talked about how you may feel like you have plenty of energy (caffeine and other stimulants can give you that illusion), yet parts of you are operating sub par. Maybe your neurotransmitters are sluggish and you have difficulties with focus, or your digestion is off and you're constipated, or your hormones or out of whack, or you have menstrual irregularities.

It takes all of your parts working in harmony to achieve vibrant energy.

At the end of my presentation, one of the women who'd not considered herself fatigued, thanked me and said that she didn't associate the sluggishness in her digestive tract with fatigue. She just figured it was “normal” for her. My talk inspired her to look at ways she could energize her digestion and thus improve her overall experience of vibrant health and high energy.

Now for the Culprits. There are many causes of fatigue. Here are The Five Big Ones:

  1. Underfed and toxic mitochondria
  2. Hormone imbalances – especially thyroid, adrenal, insulin and leptin
  3. Digestive Inefficiencies
  4. Autoimmune Processes
  5. Serious diseases, like cancer, heart disease and diabetes

In many of my articles, programs and webinars, I demystify adrenal fatigue, and distinguish it from thyroid fatigue. I also freely and frequently share strategies, stories and inspiration, to help move you from exhausted to energized.

Hormone imbalance in particular is such a pervasive condition, that nearly everyone who has health challenges is suffering from some sort of imbalance on the hormonal continuum. And with good reason. The endocrine system is the Master Command Control Center for your entire body. I focus a great deal of attention on this one area, because balancing hormones and the endocrine system itself can often clear up several of the other five culprits.
