Did you know that feeling constantly exhausted gives us vital information about your fertility and hormones?
Fatigue is an energy problem. When there is not enough energy in the body, there is less energy “overflow” to benefit the reproductive system, leading to fertility challenges.
Fatigue can have a few different causes: chronic inflammation, dysregulated blood sugar, adrenal fatigue, dehydration, poor nutrition, poor sleep habits, and more – all of which can have detrimental effects on your fertility because with all these causes, the body is not functioning optimally.
If you are on your fertility journey and regularly experience fatigue (not just an occasional tired day here or there), then we want to dig deeper and return to basics. Are you eating enough and making sure to eat every 3-4 hours? Drinking enough water? What about healthy sleep habits?
In addition to figuring out the root cause of your fatigue, acupuncture is also highly effective at increasing your body’s natural energy levels thereby improving your fertility.
