- Lack of exercise

Dr. Ramaiah helps determine what’s causing fatigue in your life. Stress or depression may play a role. She might order lab tests that can detect hormone imbalance and nutritional deficiencies.
What are the negative effects of stress and fatigue?

How can I overcome stress and fatigue?
Dr. Ramaiah and her team use alternative medicine to relieve stress and fatigue naturally, without medications. She may recommend:
Bioidentical hormone therapy
Dr. Ramaiah offers bioidentical hormone therapy to balance hormones, especially low estrogen and progesterone, to boost your energy. If low thyroid hormone contributes to fatigue, she administers the appropriate prescription medication.
Multivitamins and other dietary supplements can correct nutrient deficiencies and boost energy. Dr. Ramaiah lets you know which supplements best match your needs based on what’s causing your fatigue.
Regular exercise is a natural way to relieve stress and anxiety, and helps you sleep better at night. Avoid working out right before bed, however.
Massage and acupuncture
Massage and acupuncture are natural stress-relieving remedies Dr. Ramaiah might recommend you try. These strategies ease muscle tension and chronic pain, and boost energy.
Stretching and yoga
Stretching and other yoga moves work to relieve stress, anxiety, chronic pain, and fatigue.
Other relaxation strategies
With the busy hustle and bustle of day-to-day life, finding time to relax can be difficult. Doing so is crucial to maximizing health and wellness. Spend time outdoors, go for a walk or bike ride, try meditation, or read a good book to help you relax. Dr. Ramaiah can show you some deep breathing techniques to try at home.
