Fatigue Treatment in Edmonton
Our Naturopaths have mastered treatment of fatigue in Edmonton
Low energy and fatigue is the most common concern seen at our Clinic.
TruMed's Naturopathic Doctors often have excellent results in fatigue cases.
Our Naturopaths are experienced in fatigue
Our Naturopaths often will do a deep dive and run nutritional and advanced Thyroid Testing (TSH, FT3, FT4, RT3).
Our Naturopaths always screen our fatigue patients for Hypothyroidism.
We even make sure that patients already on Thyroid medication are converting and utilizing their Thyroid hormone medication appropriately.
Our Naturopathic Doctors consider Thyroid an issue especially if accessory Thyroid symptoms are present in addition to fatigue: weakness, depression, constipation etc.
Hypoadrenalism or "Adrenal Fatigue" is a common cause of fatigue our Naturopaths see in our Edmonton patients.
Signs and symptoms of hypoadrenalism may include fatigue, salt craving, positional blood pressure issues, insomnia and poor tolerance to stress.
We usually run salivary or urinary hormones (often DHEA and Cortisol) to assess Adrenal health.
We commonly see this energy pattern in adrenal fatigue patients: morning fatigue, mid-day dip in energy and best energy in the evening.
Magnesium - Magnesium is required for the synthesis and utilization of ATP, the major storage form of energy in the body.
Several studies have found that magnesium levels are low in patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
So our Naturopaths load our patients up with oral and IV Magnesium at our Edmonton clinic. Magnesium potassium aspartate is particularly helpful for Fatigue when given orally.
B12 - B12 is used to make Succinyl-CoA - an important part of the citric acid cycle (Krebs).
Our Naturopaths use Intramuscular B12 shots and give large IV B12 doses of B12 for fatigue.
We usually want to see our patients' B12 levels above 700 pg/ml but some patients feel their best with levels well over 1000 pg/ml.
Vitamin D - Vitamin D deficiency can cause fatigue, and low Vitamin D can also cause aches and pains.
For many of our Edmonton patients we recommend doses around 5000 - 8000 IU of Vitamin D3, usually with a meal because it's fat soluble unless it's already emulsified.
Iodine - Our Naturopaths screen many of our Edmonton patients with fatigue for Iodine deficiency.
Iodine is a main component of Thyroid hormone and is a common cause of fatigue even with normal Thyroid tests.
Our Naturopath clinic offers Edmonton Urinary Iodine Testing which is not available in Edmonton through Alberta Health.
Adrenal, Thyroid, & Nutritional Test Reports
Our Naturopaths work with a full range of fatigue treatments at our Edmonton Clinic.
Our Naturopaths have seen many young fatigued patients with EBV or HHV-6 active viral infections.
Support strength is determined by your Naturopath usually based on your test results.
Three of our Naturopaths, use IV Therapy for aggressive fatigue treatment.
IV Therapy often gets rapid results even in long standing chronic fatigue.
IV NAD+ is a popular treatment in Edmonton for energy that our Naturopaths have a lot of experience with.
We also get great results with our standard Myers Cocktail Vitamin IV
B12 shots, PolyMVA & NADH are also commonly used to treat fatigue with frequently rapid results.
