Stress and Fatigue
Over time stress and fatigue weaken your body and immune system and can lead to further health issues, such as:
- Depression, anxiety and mood disorders
- Eating disorders
- Memory and concentration problems
- Problems sleeping and not feeling rested upon rising
- Head, neck and back pain
- Stomachaches, constipation and diarrhea
- Urinary tract dysfunction
- Hypertension, heart palpitations
- Loss of libido
- Compromised immune function with frequent infections or allergic reactions
“Symptoms occur when our bodies hit the boarders of tolerance. Given proper support the human body can self heal and recover in remarkable ways.”Dr. Eric Posen, N.D., D.C., R.Ac.
What are your stressors? What keeps you up at night?
Everyone experiences stress and fatigue differently and your answers will be different than everyone else’s. You may not even be able to pinpoint your triggers if biochemical imbalances or other internal issues cause your stress.
Stress and fatigue are often related. You may experience stress because you are fatigued, or feel fatigued because you are stressed. The vicious cycle feeds off itself.
Other reasons you may feel chronically fatigued may be:
- Poor nutrient intake or absorption
- Chronic infections
- Hormonal imbalances
- Chronic pain
- Compromised cellular metabolism due to weight issues
The Integrative Approach to Stress and Fatigue
Because the cause of your stress and fatigue is different than everyone else’s, we analyze each and every potential source to create a program specifically for you.
We begin with clinical and laboratory testing to analyze your:
- Hormone and neurotransmitter levels
- Oxygen and nutrient status
- Waste elimination
- Nervous system health
- Diet and lifestyle factors
Once we have found how your body responds to stress and fatigue, we can choose the therapies best suited for you. Depending on your needs, we may:
- Help you make changes to your nutrition and lifestyle to optimize your central nervous system health
- Work with you to disentangle the underpinnings of current or past emotional challenges
- Employ acupuncture, massage therapy and homeopathy to address the emotional and physical aspects of stress
- We can also collaborate with mental health professionals who work within the Integrative model
