Low energy and adrenal fatigue can leave you feeling drained even after a good night’s sleep, like you’ve lost your “get up and go”, or like you don’t have the energy to be present with your family and friends. Often this results in an increased urge to disconnect and “veg out”, making it a struggle just to finish tasks, or force your way through simple challenges. This lack of energy can steal the joy from everything you once loved and leave you feeling like an empty sack.
Our bodies and minds are designed to handle certain amounts of physical, chemical, and psychological stress. However, if the stress is too much, chronic, or accompanied by spinal damage, the body gets stuck in a state of overload. Unable to sustain this heightened level of arousal we burn out leaving no energy to feel anymore.
Band-aid solutions to a lack of energy
When we are low on energy, we rely on caffeine, prescription stimulants, and sleep medication to help power through. However, if this low energy drain is secondary to a neurostructural dysfunction, you may find these things stop working, leaving you with anxiety and deeper exhaustion.
The root of the problem
This burnout, or neurostructural dysfunction, can affect your ability to restore your body, think clearly, and turn food, water, and air into metabolic energy, which may show up as secondary conditions such as adrenal fatigue, exhaustion, restless sleep or chronic fatigue. It may seem like all of your energy goes into being stressed or you can’t remember what “energized” feels like.
Addressing low energy head on
We assess and treat the underlying neurostructural dysfunction along with any related secondary conditions to find a solution that works for you. Our approach uniquely helps the nervous system better adapt to future stressors, decreasing the body’s tendency to wear itself out in a state of overload.
When we get to the root of things, you can resolve the challenges and live an amazing life.
