FATIGUE AND TIREDNESS
FATIGUE AND TIREDNESS – HOW WE CAN HELP
Fatigue, the feeling of being tired most or all of the time, is one of the most common complaints I see in clinic. Maybe you can even relate?
Some of the symptoms typically presenting in chronic fatigue are:
- Extreme tiredness which cannot be relieved by sleeping
- Brain fog
- Muscle and joint pain
Research has discovered that acupuncture may be able to relieve its symptoms when combined with other treatments.
Often the cause is unknown, however common triggers are range of physical and psychological factors, some of which could be an internal hormonal imbalance, a viral infections (such as Epstein-Barr or Covid) or stress resulting in chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).
The Traditional Chinese Medicine approach to treating Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is to rebalance and boost the “Qi”, our life energy. During a consultation I will ask questions about all aspects of your medical history, life and work. Acupuncture and Naturopathy for chronic fatigue can show great results in boosting energy. Each particular reason for fatigue or tiredness can present itself differently in every individual, which is why I always adjust the approach accordingly to your symptoms and causes. The initial consultation will help us to understand the causes of the symptoms you are experiencing and to determine the best treatment for you.
Acupuncture is believed to address chronic fatigue by stimulating the nervous system and in turn releasing neurotransmitters. This has been shown to affect areas of the brain known to reduce sensitivity to stress and pain, promoting relaxation and better sleep.
