When Fatigue is Chronic
Exhaustion can afflict anyone, anywhere and anytime. And normal fatigue operates as a signal or flag to your body that you are spent and need rest and recuperation. But what happens if exhaustion is simply a way of life and a state of being? What if no matter what you do, you just cannot seem to shake off that fatigue and tiredness?
For some people, ongoing fatigue and exhaustion is a way of life. Coping with the normal daily routines and the day to day chores at home and at work become insurmountable obstacles that cannot be overcome because the mind and body are simply just far too tired. No matter how much rest or sleep you get, the cycle of tiredness continues and the lethargy that afflicts you permeates all aspects of life until the way you once lived is eroded and you operate out of a state of pure existence.
It’s no way to live.
Here at A Natural Self Clinic I see a number of people with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or Myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), as it is less commonly known. Individuals come in complaining of utter exhaustion following ordinary bouts of exertion. Taking the dog for a walk or just putting the washing on the line can be a nightmare and result in the need to lie on the couch for a couple of hours.
While there is no one single cause for the syndrome, there are a number of natural health and natural remedy options you might like to consider if you suffer from this illness.
Here are a few tips and pointers that just might help:
- Drink plenty of fluids
- Reduce intake of refined foods and processed foods
- Rethink your diet and introduce more fresh fruit and vegetables
- Increase your protein
- Get a complete health check to rule out the possibility of other long term health conditions
- Get a complete blood reading that indicates vitamin and mineral levels and any lacks or low levels.
- Enquire about supplements
