Is THIS why you’re exhausted all the time?
Doctors CAN’T explain it. And some of them WON’T acknowledge it.
Yours may even try to tell you that chronic fatigue syndrome isn’t real.
It’s enough to make you want to smack him… if only you had the energy!
But while he’s pretending that CFS is a made-up disorder, new research reveals a way to treat it.
It’s not what he’s been using. In what’s often the ultimate insult on top of injury, many mainstream docs give antidepressants to women with chronic fatigue syndrome.
It’s a sure sign that they think the problem is all in your head.
Turns out, that’s off the mark by about 8 inches.
It could be an issue just below your head, in the thyroid gland sitting inside your neck, as the new study finds a link between chronic fatigue and low levels of all-important thyroid hormones.
But here’s the catch: Your doctor won’t notice it because he’s running the wrong test!
Even if he’s “with it” enough to check in on your thyroid function, he’ll almost certainly only test for levels of thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH).
That’s the hormone cranked out by your pituitary gland when your levels of the thyroid hormones T3 and T4 drop. Just as the name suggests, it’s supposed to “stimulate” the thyroid into picking up the pace and making more.
When TSH levels are normal, most mainstream docs assume T3 and T4 are in order, too.
But that’s not the case with chronic fatigue. The study finds that patients can have perfectly normal TSH levels… while being desperately low in T3 and T4.
That means that any doc who looks only at TSH will miss the problem entirely!
The researchers are hoping that this will lead to new treatments for chronic fatigue. No doubt, some docs will start offering synthetic thyroid hormones.
But that’s not the answer here.
A natural herbal therapy called ashwagandha can improve levels of TSH and boost production of both T3 and T4 naturally.
It can also do something even more important.
While there may certainly be a thyroid component to chronic fatigue, many cases are a sign of problems in another gland.
Chronic fatigue is often caused by overworked and stressed-out adrenal glands – a.k.a. adrenal fatigue – and that’s where ashwagandha really shines. This powerful natural remedy is proven to boost sagging adrenal function, restore energy, and renew your vitality.
If often works wonders on its own, but for adrenal support I find it’s even more powerful when combined with other natural stress-busters such as Rhodiola rosea, Eleutherococcus (a.k.a. Siberian ginseng), and vitamin B12.
