Common causes of Fatigue:
Our Naturopaths know treatment of Fatigue
Our Naturopathic Approach:
We usually begin our fatigue work up with comprehensive blood and salivary testing.
Common Blood Work: Iron, B12, TSH/FreeT3/Free T4 & Thyroid Antibodies
Common Saliva Testing: AM Cortisol, DHEA, Testosterone, Estradiol and Progesterone
For Challenging Cases: Advanced Nutritional Testing, Infectious Testing (EBV, HHV-6 & Candida) and toxicity testing (Heavy Metals) & Organic Acid Testing (OAT) may be conducted.
Our Naturopaths use Immunosciences lab from Los Angeles to measure viral antibody levels as well as a stool microbiology culture to measure yeast levels at our Edmonton clinic.
We use urinary heavy metal testing to assess primarily for mercury accumulation.
Magnesium, Iodine, Iron and B12 are top nutrients we screen for related to fatigue.
However, deficiencies of other minerals or vitamins can also cause low energy.
Our Naturopaths often begin with nutritional and herbal options for fatigue treatment.
Commonly we use Adrenal glandular extracts to treat hypoadrenalism or "adrenal fatigue" as well as iodine based herbal formulas for thyroid treatment especially if an iodine deficiency is found.
More difficult cases may require use of Bio-identical or Injectable Options*.
Desiccated Thyroid, DHEA and Hydrocortisone are all potential Bio-Identical options for Fatigue*.
For infectious cases of fatigue we usually start with oral antimicrobials. Viral infections are often treated with Baikal Skullcap, Lomatium, Olive Leaf, Artemesinin, Lysine and Vitamin C.
Your TruMed Naturopath may refer you for prescription anti-virals as well or may also recommend IV Vitamin C.
Yeast infections are also typically treated orally with grapefruit seed extract and capryllic acid.
IV vitamin therapy is also a frequently rapid and effective option for stubborn cases of fatigue.
Fatigue is the most common use of IV Therapy at our Edmonton office.
*We may refer to prescribing professionals if Bio-identical options are needed.
