Do you often feel drained and exhausted? While it's wise to see your doctor to rule out cancer and other serious maladies, you should not simply stop trying to address the problem when you find out nothing serious is wrong. Ongoing tiredness can get in the way of your enjoyment of life. Attack this problem head on by seeing your chiropractor, who can help with your ongoing fatigue in a number of ways.
Relieving subluxations that affect your adrenal gland.
Many people have high levels of stress on a regular basis. When you're stressed out, your adrenal glands release adrenaline, and when they have to do this so often, they become fatigued. Then, they stop releasing as much adrenaline as they should, and you feel slow and drained when you should be feeling energetic.
If your spine is out of alignment, it may be pressing on nerves related to your adrenal glands, further preventing them from functioning normally. By adjusting your spine to alleviate this pressure, your chiropractor may set you on the road to healing your adrenal fatigue, which should help your energy levels improve over time.
Promoting better sleep.
It doesn't really matter how many hours you're spending in bed if you're tossing, turning, and having a tough time falling asleep for most of that time. If you're not sleeping well, you're not getting the rest you need. After a chiropractic adjustment, your whole body should feel looser and more relaxed, so you'll have an easier time getting the sleep you need to feel refreshed.
Strengthening your immune system.
Your immune system's job is to fight off pathogens like the common cold virus. When your immune system is not functioning properly, it has to work a lot harder than normal to do this, and this consumes energy, leaving you tired. Plus, with a barely functioning immune system, you may always be on the verge of a cold, and those viruses can certainly tucker you out. Chiropractic adjustments can improve immunity by alleviating pressure on nerves related to your immune system. Plus, if you get more sleep after your adjustment, this will also improve your immunity, which will indirectly give you more energy, too.
If you're feeling exhausted, don't just reach for cup after cup of coffee and hope the problem goes away on its own. Visit your chiropractor, and you could be feeling better soon. Chiropractors are experts in whole-body health and may have some recommendations for changing your lifestyle to promote more energy, too.
