Fatigue, Low Energy, Adrenal Doctor | Santa Fe
Is there any surprise that fatigue and lack of energy are common symptoms experienced by many of us? Not at all. We are under enormous amounts of stress on a regular basis – and stress is literally making us sick. When you are feeling tired all the time and don’t have the energy to move, isn’t it time to make a change? Unfortunately, many people don’t even have the energy to figure out the first steps to getting well.
At Live Well Functional Medicine in Santa Fe, NM, we understand that many of the issues related to stress and fatigue are based on lifestyle. But we also realize that many patients are just are too tired to focus on lifestyle optimization, including: a healthy diet, exercise, sleep and stress reduction. The causes of cortisol imbalance are emotional stress, dietary stress, pain and hidden inflammation. Stress and cortisol imbalance can result in weight gain, fatigue, depression, gastrointestinal problems, female hormone imbalance, and many other health issues.
At your first visit, we will have you fill out a comprehensive health history to identify areas of imbalance in your life. We will focus on the emotional, dietary, and inflammatory stressors that may be your triggers for the “Big 5”: inability to lose weight, fatigue, depression, GI issues and female hormone imbalance. We will explore which areas to focus on first, with blood tests for overall health status and hormone levels, as well as salivary adrenal cortisol levels.
Then Dr. Martinez will put together a comprehensive treatment and lifestyle plan to help reduce or eliminate stressors, restore hormonal balance, and provide nutritional supplementation to accelerate recovery from stress and restore balance to your body and mind.
If you would like to restore your energy and health, sleep better, lose weight, enhance sexual enjoyment, and improve your quality of life, schedule a consultation with Dr. Lynore Martinez at Live Well Functional Medicine in Santa Fe, NM today.
