Energise and Restore with Vitamin J
Unrelenting fatigue is takes the pleasure out of life- Don’t I know it! I battled with chronic fatigue until I was able to solve my health problems. I found naturopathic medicine invaluable in restoring my energy. This is why I am passionate about helping my clients regain their vitality and zest for life.
The Cause of Fatigue
There are many causes of fatigue, and that is why its important that we get to the root cause of YOUR symptoms. Common causes that I see in my clinic include:
- Adrenal fatigue, now known as HPA axis dysfunction
- Poor sleep
- Excessive stress
- Mitochondrial dysfunction
- Chronic immune infections such as Epstein Barr virus and mycoplasma
- Chronic inflammation & CIRS (chronic inflammatory response syndrome)
- Thyroid dysfunction
- Toxin overload such as mould or heavy metals
- Nutrient deficiencies
- Metabolic disorders
- Blood sugar imbalances
In order to ascertain the cause, I take a detailed case history, assessing how your diet, lifestyle, gut health, biochemistry, mental health, immune function, genetics and health history contribute to your energy. I may refer you for functional pathology testing also.
It is necessary to address the underlying cause of your fatigue to regain your energy. As the cause is varied, so too is the treatment. I use the following tools in helping your body to heal:
Personalised nutritional recommendations based on the latest scientific research.
Restoration of nutritional deficiencies is necessary for optimal body function. We feed your cells with bioavailable nutrients to restore function.
Herbal medicine works wonderfully in increasing energy and restoring balance within the body. Adrenal tonics, adaptogenic herbs and trophorestoratives support your body while you heal.
I work with you to find the lifestyle practices that fit with your life to improve your energy. This includes breathing exercises, mindful meditation, yoga and exercise.
