Is fatigue affecting the way you live? If you are finding it difficult to get out of bed in the morning and perform normal, daily activities you are not alone. Approximately 20% of Americans have symptoms that affect their daily living. Many reach for coffee, soda or chocolate to make it through the day. It is time to take control of your health and learn how to fight this commonly debilitating condition.
Fatigue can be characterized by a persistent feeling of weakness, tiredness and low energy level, even after a full night’s sleep. Most people ignore fatigue symptoms or simply write it off as another sign of an aging body. The fact is that people of all ages deal with tiredness and fatigue.
What is the cause of fatigue?
Fatigue symptoms can result from mild to serious conditions and diseases. A comprehensive evaluation of each patient is needed to get to the root of the problem.
Some common causes are:
Lack of exercise or too much exercise
Lack of sleep
Illness or surgery
Use of stimulants like caffeine or amphetamines
Hormones and Fatigue
Hormonal imbalance is one of the most common causes of fatigue. Thyroid and adrenal hormones work together to regulate energy in the body. As we age, hormones naturally decline in the body increasing the likelihood of tiredness.

The Flowers group has been a life saver! They have helped me over come 7 years of illness in almost 4 months! So thankful for all of their knowledge and the compassion they have for their patients.
After years (decades) of thinking I was healthy (read: macho American male), and frustration of bad hormone levels, I became a patient of Dr. Flowers. In my fourth month of treatment, my body chemistry is within normal ranges, I have lost over 30 lbs., I have noticeably more energy, and am motivated to exercise every day. I am excited to see what I can be after year under Dr. Flowers care.
I’ve been seeing Dr. Flowers for about 9 months and I love the personal attention I get from him and the office staff! I am never rushed out nor have I ever had the “next” feeling you get with so many traditional Doctors’ offices these days. I love the more natural whole body approach to healing and would recommend him to anyone!
Dr Flowers and His nurse, Misty, are an amazing team. They are thorough, responsive and do an exceptional job of educating you so that you are motivated to be an active participant in your Plan of care. This is the first time my hormones have been balanced since before my total hysterectomy in 2004. I've suffered with severe migraine headaches since age 9 and have tried everything from medicines to acupuncture. After 4 months of HRT and herbal therapies with Dr Flowers my headaches are few and far between a 90% improvement. I'm still on the journey but there is not doubt that my quality of life has improved.
Love the welcoming atmosphere created by the staff and Dr. Flowers.
They gave me hope that I would be overcoming my issues and feeling better soon.
I love the individual attention I received from Dr. Flowers and the time he allotted for my visit.
There is a lot of one on one time with both Doctor and Nurses and I feel that my concerns and comments are heard.
liked the personal attention given by Misty and Dr. Flowers. I appreciated the hour block of time where I could sit down and really go over all the lab results and treatment plan. Never felt rushed. Always feel like
