5 Common Reasons for Feeling Tired

Do you keep waking up every morning feeling like you’ve been hit by a bus? Are you struggling to keep your eyes open in the afternoons and keep thinking if you could just lie down and nap for a while then everything will be better? If yes, you’re not alone!

So many of us struggle with constant tiredness but luckily there are some common causes of fatigue that can often be easily rectified by a quick visit to your doctor. Unfortunately, so many of us just keep ‘pushing through the tiredness’ and ignore how terrible we’re really feeling instead of going to the doctor.

In my video below I chat about the five most common causes of fatigue as well as how to recognise them in yourself. These can all be diagnosed by your doctor, naturopath or homoeopathic doctor through simple blood tests. Have a listen to the video and please feel free to ask questions 🙂

Five common causes of fatigue include:

  • Anaemia
  • Thyroid disorder (hypothyroidism, Hashimoto’s)
