Naturopathic Approach to Fatigue

Listen to Fatigue Podcast

Listen as Portland naturopathic doctors, Dr. Greg Eckel and Dr. Greg Nigh discuss fatigue and the issues that surround it.  They talk about how a conventional doctor might treat fatigue, which includes blood tests to rule out thyroid or anemia issues.  But if the blood tests don’t come back with anything abnormal, then the patient will often just get sent home with a prescription, usually an antidepressant.  They explain what their naturopathic approach would be, which usually involves an adrenal stress test, food allergy testing, stress evaluations and chronic infection testing.  Depending upon the results of those tests, patients will be put on a comprehensive treatment plan to address the imbalances and restore vitality to their bodies.
