Wintertime can make you sleepy. While sometimes it can be nice to drowse peacefully on a winter evening, heightened fatigue and tiredness throughout the winter months can eventually take a toll on you. It may be worth thinking about why you feel so tired in winter, and what treatments and therapies may be able to help.
At Iconic Infusions, PLLC, Dr. Bryant S. Edwards considers the whole-body health and wellness of his patients. From his location in Fayetteville, North Carolina, Dr. Edwards can support you in determining the potential underlying cause of your fatigue, and suggest treatment options.
Could you be dealing with seasonal affective disorder (SAD)? Or, maybe winter triggers vitamin deficiencies in your body that result in fatigue. Mental health can be affected by winter weather, as well. Mental health support, or vitamin therapy, might be what you need to reclaim your energy.
Fatigue and seasonal vitamin deficiency
In the winter months, changes in your lifestyle can leave you dealing with unexpected vitamin and nutrient deficiencies. When your body isn’t getting the nutrients it needs, you may feel fatigued, easily wearied, and overall low-energy.
Dr. Edwards treats vitamin and nutrient deficiencies with specially formulated intravenous (IV) injection cocktails. Absorbing nutrients through your bloodstream gives you faster, more complete results than taking oral dietary supplements, which have to make it through your digestive system before you see any benefits.
If you’ve been feeling fatigued this winter, an infusion of one of our vitamin cocktails may be just what you need to get you back to your usual energy levels. You can try the Get-Up-And-Go IV, with B-complex vitamins, glutamine, arginine, ornithine, lysine, citrulline, and carnitine to boost your energy levels.
We also offer The Recovery & Performance IV, with vitamin C and ascorbic acid, B-complex vitamins, glutamine, arginine, ornithine, lysine, citrulline, carnitine, magnesium chloride, zinc chloride, manganese, copper, and selenium, which may help you avoid fatigue.
The Iconic Infusions, PLLC team can also add extra vitamins like Vitamin B12, antioxidants, and treatments like oxygen therapy, to your infusion session.
SAD, depression, and winter lethargy
Symptoms of fatigue can also indicate an imbalance in your mental health and brain chemistry, especially in the winter. SAD affects many adults, in the United States and worldwide, as shorter days and less sun exposure takes a toll on your mental health.
Fatigue can also be an indicator of depression, particularly if you don’t think there are real issues with how well you rest at night.
Dr. Edwards offers treatments to improve mental, as well as physical, health. If your fatigue symptoms seem more likely to be associated with SAD or depression, you may benefit from infusion therapy with IV ketamine. Ketamine works as an effective treatment option for even treatment-resistant depression.
You don’t have to live with constantly feeling sleepy, and not having the energy to keep up with your plans, for the whole winter. With Dr. Edwards’ support, you can reclaim your vitality and energy before spring comes around.
