Fighting Fatigue Naturally

Chiropractic Care for Headaches

Chronic exhaustion is a huge problem in today’s world. With a number of different causes and lifestyles that often contribute to increased fatigue, it’s something that many of us struggle to overcome. 

While some people experience occasional fatigue that comes and goes, others deal with something called chronic fatigue syndrome. This syndrome is characterized by fatigue that lasts for at least six months and has no medical explanation. It isn’t improved with more rest and is typically worsened with too much physical activity or mental exertion. Whether you’re dealing with chronic fatigue syndrome or just feel exhausted for much of the time, chiropractic care can help. Additionally, lifestyle changes can make a positive impact on your overall health and wellness, and they can work well along with chiropractic as a highly effective strategy for overcoming fatigue. 

Causes of Fatigue 

The main contributing factors of fatigue include the following:

  • Not getting enough sleep
  • Sleep apnea or other sleep disturbances
  • Poor diet and/or dehydration
  • Anemia
  • Depression
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Too much caffeine
  • Diabetes
  • Heart Disease
  • Fibromyalgia

In many cases, one of the best things to do to overcome fatigue is to exercise. While that may seem counterintuitive, a good workout can give healthy adults a huge burst of energy. Additionally, making sure your diet is healthy and well-balanced can have a positive impact on fatigue and energy levels. Not only should you be eating nutrient-rich foods from a variety of food groups, but you should also ensure you’re eating the right amount of food daily. Many people with fatigue eat too much or too little, causing their bodies to work harder to deal with the intake of food (or lack thereof), making them more tired. 

Lifestyle Changes, Chiropractic, and Fighting Fatigue 

Making positive changes to your lifestyle can have an almost immediate effect on your energy levels, sleep quality, and wellness.

You may experience fatigue that is related to a disease or illness, or it may be a simple imbalance of hormones or gland secretions. It may be due to lifestyle habits, like listed above, or a chemical imbalance of some sort may be causing you to feel exhausted. Either way, chiropractic care helps your brain to effectively transmit messages to the rest of the body and helps your body receive them properly, restoring balance and function to your body and improving symptoms of fatigue.
