Post Lock Down Fatigue, Homeopathy is here to help.
Post lock down fatigue
There have been positives during the lock downs, such as families spending more time together, but there are those families that have gone without seeing loved ones and many single people who have felt the effects of isolation.
Despite the fact that lock downs are coming to a end so many people are suffering from fatigue it would seem and are saying that they just don’t appear to have much energy. When you consider that we have been exposed to a lot of negativity for over a year now via the media and other people it’s little wonder that there are people who are feeling exhausted, but they don’t necessarily understand why that is.
Fear, anxieties, worry and anger can and do have an adverse effect on our body, our immune system and the adrenals and this will have sent a lot of people into a state of fight or flight, what this means is that the continued state of stress and anxiety sends a signal to the amygdala in your brain. The amygdala reacts to danger that then sends a signal to the hypothalamus, that will then activate the sympathetic nervous system, so that the adrenals can then release adrenaline and cortisone. As soon as this happens our pupils dilate so that we can see more, our digestive system shuts down, so that we are not burning precious fuel, our hearts start pumping faster, so that it can get oxygen to the brain, we start breathing faster and our muscles tense up ready to fight………but there is no fight, our brain just believes that there is because we are stressed.
This response is great if you need to run for your life, but not so good if you’re sitting on the couch with the kids watching TV and not exerting yourself.
It’s easy to see now why many of us would be suffering with fatigue and prolonged tiredness, it’s not healthy to be in a state of fight or flight all the time every day. Its fine when you are running from a tiger, but when is the last time that you had to do that?
There are things that you can start to do now to help to alleviate these symptoms. Stop consuming sugar, include healthy fresh fruit and veg in your diet, exercise plenty, even if it’s only walking in the fresh air, learn to meditate and turn off the TV, that recently only seems to add to our negative state. Also consider Homeopathy to help to calm down those adrenals that have been under so much stress for such a long time. Homeopathy can also be of huge help when we need to boost our immunity that will have been under stress during these past months.
I’ve helped a lot of people in the past with prolonged stress and anxiety and Homeopathy is of great value when we need support in this area.
