Fatigue is a drag. Run down, worn out, exhausted and tired, and it was supposed to be a vacation?
Acupuncture can help!
A few of the basic reasons for fatigue are stress, not getting enough sleep (that’s an easy one to figure out), poor dietary choices, nutritional deficiencies, being on the go all of the time, and/or too little exercise. “A body at rest, stays at rest.”
Fatigue is also felt by people going through and/or who have gone through cancer treatments, or a long illness — fatigue also poses a danger to sufferers because normal brain and physical activity is often compromised, in addition to a reduced quality of life.
There’s two different kinds of fatigue. Physical fatigue is indicated by a general lethargy or listlessness, while mental fatigue is characterized by a feeling of drowsiness and an inability to pay attention. Acupuncture is extraordinarily helpful with both physical and mental fatigue, as well as chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) — when the tiredness and heavy feeling won’t stop, and headaches and pain are added to the mix of exhaustion.
Acupuncture helps to improve fatigue immediately, after the first treatment. Often patients remark that for even other primary concerns, fatigue was the first improvement they noticed.
Acupuncture isn’t just great for fatigue, it is also very helpful for treating all sleep problems, and without the troublesome side effects that some medications can cause.
Acupuncture stimulates the nervous system and cause the release of neurotransmitters. Acupuncture also reduces insomnia through increasing nighttime endogenous melatonin secretions.
Melatonin = Slumberland.
