I have been dealing with low energy levels over the last six months. What do you think could be the cause?
You are not in the minority when it comes to energy levels. So many people each day struggle to get their engines moving and to have enough energy and vitality to make it through the day. That is why coffee shops are some of the most profitable companies in this country. The key is not to put a band-aid over the issue, but to find the root of what may be going on. Typically with low energy levels you could be dealing with a host of issues. You may have low thyroid function, be anemic in either iron or B-12, or have an unresolved blood sugar issue that needs to be addressed. Regardless, if you are feeling fatigued and tired over a long period of time, it’s best to have a visit with your family doctor. You can ask them to run the regular blood tests and any nutritional tests as well. Very low vitamin D levels have been shown to cause extreme lethargy and fatigue.
Along with a deficient area that may be presiding in your body, make sure to get on a new game plan of eating healthier and exercising more. Those two areas are still “King” and “Queen” of feeling better and having the kind of vitality that we are all searching for. If you will build a solid foundation, then your body will remain a strong tower for you to thrive in.
