Solutions for why you are tired all the time

One of the most common symptoms I hear daily from patients is a lack of energy.

There are many different reasons that people are tired.  If it’s chronic, then you really have to look at the underlying cause of the problem.

One of the most common one is poor sleep at night.  There are many underlying problems causes of this also.  Poor blood sugar regulation, thyroid issues, stress, hormonal imbalances, etc, etc.

To find out why you are tired I use lab testing.  I do a 85 panel test which covers just about everything under the sun and a test called an andrenal stress index test.  This is a saliva test that measures your 4 cortisol levels.  If your cortisol levels which are stress hormones are elevated at night then there is no way your sleeping very good.  Most peopel tell me they either can’t get to sleep or can’t stay alseep.  Both of those need to be addressed and the blood work up and ASI test is a great place to start.

There are some simple things you can do also like not eating sugary foods at night, don’t eat past 7 pm, eat a light supper, get to bed the same time each night.  Clear your head of worrry and fear before you go to bed.  Count your blessings and I could go on and on.  The big thing is to take some form of consistant action which works best for you.

If you want to find out more information I’m doing a fatigue recovery workshop this Wednesday night 6:30 pm at my clinic.  Just email me back if you want in.  Seating is limited.  No charge for this seminar.  Will take about 45 minutes or so.

Well that Super Bowl was a dud, and so were the commercials.  Game over after the first few series.  The packers are going to have a tough time getting to the super bowl the next few years with trying to get through that Seattle defense.  They really bring it.

40 years ago in 1974 I was part of the Super Bowl halftime entertainment at the punt, pass and kick national championships.  What a thrill that was.  Now they put on these huge shows which cost millions of dollars.  I say bring back the kids!

Allright, I know it’s cold out, if it’s to cold for you get in the gym or so some workouts at home.  Your body and mind need movement.  I did a 43 kilometer race in Wausao on Saturday and that really took it out of me.  Very cold and slow snow but i got it done.  It’s always  a great accomplishment after  doing a hard race.  Less than 3 weeks until the Birkie!!

    I'm sure most of us have been watching many hours of the London Olympics. Last night I watched the 4x100 swimming and the Women's team gymnastics and talk about pressure on those athletes. As much as I love the limelight I think I'd prefer a sport that wasn't so focused on the winning the gold. Jo

  • Remember the Sears catalog?

    Every year the Christmas season seems to come and go faster and faster.  I remember as a child looking through the Sears and J.C. Penny catalogs.  I had those catalogs memorized.  The train sets were my favorites, then I graduated to Hot Wheels, and then it was getting ski's.  Oh, I remember get
