Fatigue is a term used to explain the constant feeling of lack of energy and tiredness, resulting in a lack of motivation.
Fatigue can be a result of:
Lifestyle factors: lack of exercise, sleep, poor diet, overworking, periods of emotional stress, being overweight, excessive alcohol, drugs, caffeine, and certain medications such as antidepressants or sedatives.
Physical health conditions such as anaemia, arthritis, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, hypo/hyperthyroidism, insomnia, anorexia, diabetes, and autoimmune disorders.
Mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, and seasonal affective disorder.
At Remedi, we will undergo a thorough consultation to ascertain the reason for the fatigue. This may include a health questionnaire as well as certain blood tests.
Some of our therapies that can help reduce the symptoms of fatigue include:
Breathwork: Breathwork exercises, especially the "breath of fire", can help stimulate the sympathetic nervous system, making one more alert and energised.
Cryotherapy: The human body responds to temperatures down to -85 degrees which prompt the release of endorphins, activates the immune system, detoxifies cells, and activates healing processes. This allows positive processes such as increasing energy levels and reducing fatigue.
Hypnotherapy: Hypnotherapy aims to break negative thought patterns and responses to stress and provide you with a healthier reaction. This is done via the subconscious - the part of our mind that works automatically and without us realising.
Rebalance Impulse: This is a non-invasive stimulation and cognitive training device based on applied neurosciences devoted to fighting stress and preventing health problems. After a few (sometimes only one) 30-minute sessions, each user discovers their ideal relaxation method and unlocks the keys to controlling stress.
Infrared sauna: Our award-winning Sunlighten infrared sauna is another clinically proven tool to boost wellness in many aspects, including reducing fatigue.
Emerald Laser: The laser creates stimulation of the cytochrome C oxidase, resulting in increased mitochondrial activity, therefore increased ATP, NADH, RNA and cellular respiration. In other words, a side effect will result in elevated energy levels.
