Stress and Fatigue
In today’s society, there are few people who have not experienced high levels of stress and fatigue. As human beings, we are built to endure brief stress situations and then relax and heal again. Unfortunately many of us live with chronic stress that seems un-escapable. Financial stress, illness, work pressure, relationship stress, poor sleep, pain, allergies – the body does not recognize the difference between a bad day at work or shoulder pain. Your brain interprets the level of stress and releases a hormonal cascade that triggers your adrenal system to respond with stress hormones. These cause a variety of symptoms such as fatigue and mental fog, weight gain (particularly in the mid-section), anxiety, depression, low libido, insomnia, hormonal imbalances, skin conditions. . . the list goes on.
Most people know whether they are stressed or not, the issue comes down to understanding what is happening to you as an individual and what you can do about it. We all live with some level of stress and need some positive stress to motivate and excel in life, but most patients are burning out under the pressure. Naturopathic Medicine offers a comprehensive approach to stress adaptation with numerous treatment options.
