Fatigue is a symptom of many different disorders, both psychological and physical. It is often difficult to discover its cause with modern Western diagnostic methods. Fortunately, diagnosing and treating this sort of generalized complaint is one of the strong points of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The first and most important step is to examine the person's lifestyle to eliminate any possible causes of fatigue, such as lack of sleep, poor diet, insufficient exercise, or overworking. Without correcting these problems, it is difficult or impossible to restore the patient's energy level. Once the proper lifestyle adjustments are made, treatment, particularly with herbal therapy, is much more likely to be effective.
The most common diagnoses in cases of chronic fatigue are deficiency of Qi, blood or yang. In many cases a combination of these syndromes is the cause of low energy.
It is very important to have a free consultation before ordering any of these formula to make certain they are right for you.
A deficiency of both spleen Qi and heart blood produces dizziness, poor appetite, and fatigue, with a pale face and tongue. This pattern often appears in students after excessive studying. The standard formula for this pattern is Thinker's Energy Tonic. In addition, it nourishes the heart blood, making it a good supplement for herbal therapy. If the underlying disharmony is liver and kidney yin deficiency, symptoms are fatigue, blurry vision, low back pain, sexual dysfunction, leg weakness, and night sweats, the treatment principle is to tonify liver and kidney yin with Restore Balance. Remannia and Lycium, are the key ingredients in Restore Balance. This formula replenishes the yin of the liver and kidneys, nourishes the blood and improves eyesight. When anemia is the result of spleen and kidney yang deficiency, fatigue, a pale face and tongue, lack of libido, cold limbs, and loose stools can occur. In this case, it is best to avoid cold foods and use a good patent remedy such as A Woman's Energy, which tonifies both Qi and blood.
In all types of anemia, the diet should be especially nutritious, with generous amounts of dark greens and legumes at most meals. Refined foods such as pastas, breads, and pastries should be avoided, since they are filling but provide very little nutrition.
