What is ailing you?
“Are you always tired?”
There are 20 million people diagnosed with chronic fatigue, post Covid syndrome, post treatment Lyme syndrome, or chronic depression. However, all of those are only symptoms. You get your pills and you’re on your way. As a result, you’re only treating the symptoms, masking them in a sense, you aren’t getting to the root of the cause. Consequently, your ailments return and/or you’ve accrued a whole new set of symptoms which will now require new or more prescriptions.
Some people suffer from Chronic Fatigue and are thought of as just lazy or told they’re crazy, when in reality the fatigue is a result of neuroinflammatory disease. It’s a ripple effect from inflammation of the brain, which is from an unhealthy immune system, as a result of toxins, lack of sleep, child abuse, stress, etc. What we should be doing instead is changing our diet, our exercise, and our lives. And, that starts with sleep.
You need better sleep
Sleep stages 3 and 4 are the most crucial. To clarify, these are the stages wherein our brains detoxify and our bodies recover. Waking up and drinking coffee or taking prescription adderall is only going to make your problem worse as well as lead to more severe immune system weakness. Most importantly, is the quality of your sleep. 18%-20% of your sleep time should be in that 3-4 stage. Keep a schedule and try to stick to it. There are devices that help measure the quality of your sleep. These will aid in a better understanding of your sleep habits. For example, you might discover that the reason your fighting to stay awake throughout the day may be sleep apnea. And you can treat how you feel is necessary.
In 1985, Dr. Kaplan created the Kaplan Medical Center to offer patients suffering with chronic pain and illness a more effective model of medical care. The Center’s physicians, nurses, psychotherapist, dietitian and physical therapists collaborate closely on patients’ progress to ensure the best outcome for each patient. This coordinated, multidisciplinary approach has proved to be highly effective for patients suffering with complex and long standing medical problems. Integrative medicine combines the best of different medical approaches including but not limited to nutrition and acupuncture. Did you know the best anti-inflammatory for your brain is exercise?
