Why am I so tired all the time?
As a mom, you want to be the best parent you can be to your kids. Yet, more and more, you might be asking yourself, “why am I so tired all the time?” If so, then you may be able to relate to the following:
• Are you finding it exhausting to take care of your children?
• Is it all you can do to get up and drive them to school, and do you need a nap when you get home?
• Is it overwhelming to think of doing any housework?
• Are you falling asleep at stoplights or at the kitchen table?
You give all you have to your family, but if you are struggling to make it through the day because you have no energy, please know that you are not alone and there is a natural solution.
Fatigue is a Common Symptom of Hypothyroidism
One of the most debilitating symptoms of hypothyroidism, or low thyroid function, is extreme fatigue. You wake up tired. You drag yourself through the day tired. You go to bed tired. And the next morning the cycle begins again. This lack of energy can severely affect your quality of life and your ability to be the best mom, wife and friend that you want to be.
Root Causes of Low Energy
Contrary to popular belief, it’s not normal to feel that tired just because you are getting older and have children. You should have energy and feel your best as you march through your life. It is important to get to the root cause of low energy, which includes:
1. Hormone imbalance: This must be corrected to optimize energy levels.
2. Nutritional deficiencies: The American diet is sorely lacking in adequate nutrition, leading to a host of nutrient deficiencies which deplete energy.
3. Environmental toxicity: Detoxifying the body of environmental hormone disruptors, such as pesticides and plastics, is critical.
Not many people realize that low energy is commonly caused by hormonal deficiencies. If you have questions, download the Thyroid-Hormone Connection to get the answers you’ve been looking for. Click here to get your guide.
