There is a fatigue epidemic in Australia. More and more people are reporting feeling tired ALL the time and it shouldn’t be shrugged off or dismissed as just “being a bit tired” or “working too much”. There can be many different reasons why this can be the case- nutrient deficiencies, sleep problems, stress, hormonal imbalances, thyroid dysfunction- the list goes on. Post viral fatigue is also a common reason for feeling tired all the time and refers to constant low energy after a viral infection.
