Discover how a hormone clinic in West Palm Beach can help you boost your energy levels and combat fatigue.

Hormone Clinic West Palm Beach FLChances are you feel run down and have no energy.

Even if you’ve slept 7 hours, you still feel like you could sleep more.

You simply have no zest for the things you used to enjoy.

We asked a specialist from a hormone clinic in West Palm Beach to learn more about fatigue, what causes it, and how to treat it.

Not only does chronic fatigue affect your quality of life, but it affects your hormones as well. Visit a hormone clinic to determine if your hormones are making you feel tired.

What is fatigue, and what causes it?

Fatigue is a feeling of weariness, tiredness, or lack of energy that does not go away when you rest. People may feel fatigued in their body or mind (physical or psychological fatigue).

Most of the time, fatigue results from a habit or routine. It can result from physical exertion, poor eating habits, emotional stress, boredom, or lack of sleep. Explore these to find out what’s causing your fatigue and how you can treat it.

In some cases, however, fatigue is a symptom of an underlying medical problem that requires medical treatment. When fatigue is not relieved by enough sleep, good nutrition, or a low-stress environment, it should be evaluated by a doctor in a hormone clinic. You might have a hormone imbalance.

What is adrenal fatigue?

Adrenal fatigue is a condition in which the adrenal glands are not functioning correctly. Stress overworks the adrenal glands, causing them to stop releasing necessary hormones, including the stress hormone cortisol.

Men and women with adrenal imbalances can suffer from adrenal fatigue, resulting in body aches, nervousness, sleep disturbances, digestive problems, and other health issues.

What does fatigue feel like?

Although fatigue symptoms can vary from person to person and underlying cause to cause, there are some general symptoms associated with fatigue that include:

  • Body aches, sore muscles, or stiffness
  • Headache
  • Nausea, constipation, or diarrhea
  • Sleep issues
  • Loss of motivation and increased apathy
  • Reduced sex drive
  • Difficulty concentrating or focusing
  • Brain fog or feeling forgetful
  • Increased irritability and moodiness
  • Anxiety or depression

It’s not impossible to manage fatigue. Figure out the root causes of the problem so you can identify the solution.

How can I combat fatigue?

Specialists from a hormone clinic recommend few simple lifestyle changes to have the power to put vitality back into your life. Consider these different ways you can boost your energy levels.

1. Drink plenty of water.

You may feel tired when you are mildly dehydrated. Drinking water will help you feel better and give you a boost of energy, especially after exercise.

2. Reduce caffeine.

Caffeine may give you a temporary energy boost. However, if you are constantly tired, you should reduce caffeine. In addition, too much caffeine can cause insomnia, especially at night.

To do this, you should gradually stop drinking caffeine drinks (including coffee, tea, and cola). Limit caffeine drinks to three or fewer daily, and avoid them after dinner. Stay off caffeine for a month to see if it makes you less tired.

3. Get enough sleep.

One of the best things you can do to maintain your overall health is to get enough sleep. It’s also one of the best places to start when dealing with fatigue. Most adults need 7 to 8 hours of sleep each night, which can lead to fatigue if you don’t get enough sleep.

4. Avoid sleeping pills.

A common cause of fatigue is insufficient sleep or poor quality sleep. Most people reach out to sleeping pills when they have sleep issues. The problem with sleeping pills is that they do not address the causes of insomnia, so they are not a long-term solution.

5. Limit alcohol consumption.

There is no evidence that alcohol causes adrenal fatigue, but it may contribute to your symptoms. Alcohol may affect the adrenal production of cortisol, making you more stressed and tired.

6. Stop smoking.

There are many harmful chemicals in cigarette smoke, as we all know. A smoker typically has lower energy levels than a non-smoker for many reasons. For example, oxygen must combine with glucose for the body to make energy, but cigarette smoke’s carbon monoxide reduces oxygen delivery.

7. Increase physical activity.

An active lifestyle boosts energy levels, whereas a sedentary lifestyle is known to cause fatigue. Physical activity has a lot of benefits for your body and mind. You can increase your energy levels and improve overall health by exercising thrice per week for 30 minutes.

8. Manage stress.

Stress uses up a lot of energy and releases the hormone cortisol. Reduce your stress by trying meditation, yoga, and behavioral therapy to reduce depression and improve memory. The more relaxed you are, the more energy you’ll have.
