Introduction to Fatigue
Many people suffer from fatigue in these very busy times. People often feel overwhelmed by all the tasks and obligations they have every single day. Work, family, school, no matter what a person’s situation is, it seems like there are not enough hours in the day to get everything done as planned.
Many people therefore do not have much energy left at the end of the day and can hardly manage to do other things they have been wanting to do. Even on weekends, they are low on energy and would rather just sit on the couch and watch television instead of doing something fun or productive.
However, there are herbs that can be taken that will, along with good nutrition and stress management, restore energy and end feelings of fatigue for good. Herbs for fatigue
Even though there are herbs that can be taken to revitalize a person, there are other changes that need to come before these herbal remedies.
Daily habits must be changed in order to fight fatigue as well. It is very important to eat a balanced diet every day. Even though people are rushing all day, they should have time to sit down and eat a balanced meal and not just eat nothing but fast food all day long and drink enormous amounts of coffee.
There are other things that need to be included in the diet, including organic greens, grains, nuts, fruits, and a person needs to avoid consuming too much sugar or caffeine.
Other things that affect fatigue are stress and a lack of sleep, which must be remedied as well before any improvement can be seen.
Traditional Chinese medicine has a lot to offer for helping fatigue, however. A lot of it is based on tonics, which are herbs that restore vitality and strengthen the body, and adaptogenic herbs, which are like tonics, but help the entire body instead of targeting specific areas that need help.
Some herbs that will help with fatigue include American ginseng, Siberian ginseng, ligustrum berries, fo-ti and rehmannia. All of these will increase the vital energy and stamina of the body and offer a boost to the adrenal system.
Korean red ginseng and gingerroot can also be used to aid digestion and absorb nutrients, because both of these processes are very important to getting rid of fatigue and improving overall health of both the body and mind on an everyday level.
