Fatigue

Fatigue is a problem that affects many people. People affected by fatigue feel tired no matter how many hours they have slept; they often find themselves distracted, absent-minded and enervated. Fatigue, when combined with poor circulation, may lead to dizziness, headache and chills. Because fatigue hampers the immune system, it increases susceptibility to viral and bacterial infections, tracheitis and throat inflammation. Moreover, chronic fatigue impairs one’s ability to work and to concentrate, and may lead to psychogenic conditions, such as helplessness, lack of motivation, depression, hopelessness, anxiety and fear.
Fatigue may be the result of:

  1. Sleep deprivation
    Excessive activity in daytime without adequate rest may lead to fatigue.

  2. Poor circulation
    Poor circulation decreases the amount of oxygen supplied to cells, causing fatigue, dizziness, and drowsiness.

  3. Other diseases
    Viral infections, diabetes, thyroid imbalance, anemia can lead to fatigue.

  4. Side effects of medication
    Antihistamines and antidepressants may lead to sleepiness and fatigue.

  5. Malnutrition
    Nutritional deficiency inhibits the acquisition of oxygen for energy release.

  6. Psychogenic factors
    Nervousness, chronic stress, frustration, and anxiety can lead to fatigue.
Ways to reduce fatigue:
  1. Maintain a regular lifestyle and rest as needed.
  2. Keep a well-balanced diet and eat meals at scheduled time daily.
  3. Include protein-rich foods, fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet.
  4. Limit your consumption of foods high in fat.
  5. Take B Vitamins and other energy supplements.
  6. Exercise regularly to strengthen your immune system.
