Feeling Tired All the Time Means Something is Wrong
Do you feel tired all the time?
It could be your thyroid gland. Over the years, I have treated many patients with low thyroid condition, as well as, those whose thyroid is underactive due to Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. Hashimoto’s disease is an autoimmune condition wherein the immune system has become confused. It begins to attack the thyroid gland which leads to an inflammation which disrupts the thyroid activity.
Thyroid Dysfunction: Tired all the time is a Health Condition
Like all health conditions, thyroid dysfunction is usually the culmination and result of a combination of factors. This would include toxic load, deficiencies in magnesium, iodine, iron and vitamin A; stress; hormonal imbalances, lack of sleep, depression, overwork, chronic infections, heavy metals, petrochemicals and solvent exposure.
In my experience, hypothyroidism commonly escapes detection by standard thyroid tests. Other than you feeling tired all the time, it can sometimes be detected by a low basal body temperature. To do this, take your temperature with an oral mercury thermometer when you wake up in the morning. Do this for three days in a row.
For menstruating women who feel tired all the time, take your temperature during day 2 to day 4 during your period. If your temperature stays below 36.3 degrees C, your thyroid may be under-active and you need to consult your health practitioner.
Possible Signs of Low Thyroid Aside From Being Tired All The Time
- Low basal temperature in early mornings average over 7 days
- Slow movements, slow speech, slow reaction time
- Muscle weakness
- Excessive tiredness
- Thick tongue (seemingly too big for mouth)
- Swollen feet, face or eyelids
- Pale lips or yellowish skin
- Enlarged thyroid gland
- Frequent sore throat or husky voice
- Dry mouth or eyes
- Excessively dry or coarse skin
- Very low blood pressure

Underactive thyroid and other hormonal or glandular problems should be treated as they can have serious health effects. At my clinics, we use a combination of natural therapies, including diet and hormonal balancing that help restore many men/women towards complete health and vigor.
