At the International Clinic of Nutrition, we help people who are tired all time. From our clinical work we’ve noticed that people with constant fatigue usually come with other issues, such as digestive problems, mood disorders, cognitive issues, insomnia and unexplained pain in their bodies.
The conventional approach treats each of these conditions separately. It’s concerned with the presenting symptoms and tries to alleviate each of these as if they are unrelated to each other.
The problem with this approach is that there isn’t always a drug that is effective. Even when there is, it can come with unwanted side effects. But more than this, the body never actually recovers from the presenting problems. Instead, it’s a lifetime of medication to mask the undesired symptoms with only partial success.
Here at the International Clinic of Nutrition, we take a different approach. We follow the functional medicine method which aims at getting to the root cause of the problem. By healing the body at this level, it’s returned to a state of great health in which symptoms are naturally not present.
Instead of seeing all the presenting conditions as separate, we look at how one condition can be influencing another. We also look for the underlying issues that are causing the conditions in the first place. Once we have all this information we can map out the client’s health and see exactly where to work in order to restore energy and good health.
We use leading-edge lab testing to give us further information and complete the picture. The biomarkers in these tests are designed to highlight underlying areas that can lead to disease. The research is very up to date, so much so that your doctor may not even be aware of them.
