“The first virtue in a soldier is endurance of fatigue; courage is only the second virtue.” ~ Napoleon Bonaparte

Why Am I Tired All the Time?

According to Statista (Fatigue Statistics), 45% of American adults who get 7-8 hours of sleep experience fatigue three days a week on average, while 27% experience being tired four days a week.

Those who sleep less than 6 hours are the most tired, as 54% of this group experience fatigue four days or more a week. This is not normal, and you should not accept this as part of getting older.

In this article, we will explore three main ideas:

  1. How Can I Improve My Energy?
  2. Where Can I Get Help To Regain My Energy?
  3. How Can Tiger Medical Restore My Energy?

How Can I Improve My Energy?

Everything in nature has a catalyst or root cause. There are underlying mechanisms at work whenever we feel off and know we can feel better.

The same is true when you experience fatigue. If you feel tired after waking up and remain tired even 1-2 days a week, this should be unacceptable to you. You have options to restore your energy.

There are fundamental building blocks we want to establish first outside of medical intervention.

First, reflect on your stress level and how you deal with it.

The vast majority of us in modern Western cultures are stressed to such a level we become unaware we are stressed. This leads to chronic disease.

Implementing diaphragmic breathing two to three times a day for five minutes or when we are aware we are stressed can mitigate the damaging effects of stress. You can’t eliminate stress, but you can learn to mitigate it on demand.

Poorly managed stress is a root cause of fatigue.

Second, how are you sleeping?

Good sleep isn’t simply being in bed for 8 hours. The composition of your sleep is critical, meaning how much light, REM, and deep sleep you get and how much sleep you get as a percentage of total sleep.

Most people overstate sleep quality because they’ve grown accustomed to whatever sleep reality they have today.

Poor sleep is an apparent root cause of fatigue.

Third, a sedentary lifestyle will lead to fatigue.

Ironic right? Do nothing but sit all day, fail to stress your body a little, and it leads to fatigue.

Even if just a brisk walk, movement has amazing benefits for restoring energy and brain function.

Fourth, a Western diet of carbs, processed foods, sugary drinks, and snacks will lead to fatigue.

These foods cause us to burn glucose for energy, which is a cyclical energy source. It’s why you have a food coma or the afternoon slump after lunch after a big meal of carbs.

Medically, hormones, toxin burden, and poor gut health all contribute to fatigue. While you can address stress, sleep, movement, and food independently, these additional causes need medical professionals to address appropriately.

Where Can I Get Help to Restore My Energy?

The first place to start always is your primary care physician. They know your history and can refer you to a specialist if they believe traditional medicine standards of care are not overlooked.

The challenge is most people feel tired yet need a defined pathology that can be coded into the medial system and be treated.

Our Western medical system is a sick care, treatment-oriented model. It’s not built for pre-disease or prevention.

Your doctor is a caring and intelligent person who wants the best for you but the system constrains them.

A functional doctor will be a good solution for pre-disease prevention work on potentially a complex combination of factors.

Functional medicine physicians can be MDs and DOs or Naturopathic physicians who are also board-certified medical professionals in most U.S. states (with a few exceptions).

Functional medicine addresses the whole person, seeking the root causes of symptoms and then treating the causes through lifestyle and habit changes rather than long-term medication.

You can find a functional doctor at

Alternatively, Tiger Medical Institute has integrative physicians who are Naturopathic physicians, MDs, and DOs, all trained and board-certified in functional medicine.

How Can Tiger Medical Restore My Energy?
