On Thursday, May 30, I co-presented with Patty Shipley, our Naturopath, on the common causes of chronic fatigue. Patty’s talk covered some of the unusual layers that patients and their doctors may be unaware of, and I took a deep dive on thyroid imbalance since that is one of the most common layers to chronic fatigue in our practice.
Our goal in lecturing was to help patients who have already addressed the more easily identified layers (such as healthy diet, exercise, sleep) to move forward with some more advanced information. Feedback on our talk ranged from “most was way over my head” to “wonderful lecture with lots of great, new info” and “please allow more time on these complex topics!”. Clearly, in future lectures, we should cover the basics before moving into the more advanced information and stick to one main topic. We appreciate those who attended and their willingness to share input!
For those of you who wanted access to the information presented, here are links to my presentation and handouts. Patty’s presentation on Common Causes of Chronic Fatigue and her handouts can be found here.
Let us know if you have questions or additional feedback! We’re busily planning upcoming events with all your feedback taken into consideration.
