Always FEELING TIRED .. (Part 1)
One of the most frustrating things I’ve experienced was back in 2011 when I was at home for a while and couldn’t quite get the energy to read two pages of a book or do my office work.
I was so tired and burned out that I couldn’t function normally. Fortunately, that is now over, but for many people this is still a reality. Perhaps not at the level of stress, but with chronic stress and / or fatigue that hinders their functioning. Which can in fact be an indicator that overstrain or a burnout is imminent.
It is no fun if you are dealing with this. Always tired, no energy to do nice things or to take care of the housework. Perhaps when you get tired, you become curt to the people around you or you avoid social occasions because you just don’t feel like it. It becomes completely annoying if you can not sleep well afterwards. It will be a vicious cycle. You are tired but you are unable to relax.
This can have a significant impact on your life and we think many people underestimate this.
Also to get out there is not always easy. “Then you just go to bed a little earlier.” is a e.g. response we have heard. A reaction that testifies to complete misunderstanding about the problem. It is often not that simple. Fatigue and especially the chronic fatigue that “Ayuronics” want to talk about now is a complex problem. The sad thing is that many people cannot live what they want. Ayuronics goal in life is to make it possible for people to use all their unique qualities for 100%, so that they lead a fulfilled and happy life. So we have to get rid of that fatigue. But how? To achieve that we need to look at the causes.
Fatigue can have many causes. In allopathic medicine it can be a symptom of all kinds of diseases ranging from anemia to cancer so it is always wise to consult your doctor if you have fatigue problems. If only to rule that out.
If there is no clear disease behind it, then that is positive news, but then you have not yet been helped. What can you do? Ayuronics will explain how we look at it and that is based on ayurvedic age old experience and the knowledge from Ayurveda.
As far as Ayuronics is concerned, there are basically two types of causes for fatigue: causes that come from the inside and causes that come from the outside. This part is about the causes that come from within.
The internal causes
By internal we mean causes that have to do with nutrition and lifestyle. If you do not eat the right food and it is not digested properly, you simply do not get the substances your cells need to function properly.
Digestion and metabolism are of enormous importance within Ayurveda, it is seen as your internal mechanism, which you get your strength from. That makes sense because the fuel that your body and mind runs on ultimately comes from your diet. If you don’t eat, you weaken and eventually die. So the quality of your food and the way you digest it is very important. That is why we always start with questions about your digestion during a consultation. How’s that going? That is already a good indicator of what is happening inside you and where your problems are coming from.
The Ayurvedic angle
The Ayuronics view is that problems arise in the digestive system and from there spread into the body. So every treatment will focus on or at least have in itself to get the digestive system working optimally again. This is not just about physical strength, it is also about the mental and emotional aspect of being powerful.
Within Ayurveda the conversion process is called: Agni. And this is about the conversion of food into substances that the body can use, as well as the metabolism and the processing of experiences and thoughts. A disrupted digestion and therefore the Agni has yet another effect. It causes ama(toxin) in the body and ama is freely translated into “waste”, although this does not fully cover the load.
Ama is a collective name for all kinds of substances in the body that have an adverse effect on health. This can be excessive cholesterol, free radicals, etc. that will settle in your system and cause all kinds of problems. It reduces the functioning of cells and the blocking of energy channels. So it is important to clean up ama as soon as possible. As per Ayuronics experience is that 90% of people have ama in their system due to present lifestyle and bad eating habits.
So in normal person language, an impaired digestive system is like an engine that runs on polluted fuel and only runs your car at half power. You may be able to continue for a while, but in the end you will be standing on the side of the road for a long time.
