Overcoming Morning Fatigue

Overcoming Morning Fatigue

Posted 23 Aug '17

Have you ever woken up to mornings when you felt like you haven’t had a single second of sleep throughout the night? Do you find it difficult to wake up, feeling light-headed despite long hours of sleep during the night or regular afternoon naps?

You could be experiencing a level of adrenal fatigue.

Our bodies have a powerhouse of cells and unlocking the keys to supporting this may be the answer.  The mitochondria are one of these main keys to unlocking the body’s optimum strength and energy.

Getting Your Energy Back

The key is putting together a treatment plan which focuses on supporting cellular function while correcting the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis dysfunction. It is commonly referred to as “adrenal fatigue and/or exhaustion” and refers to the slowing down of metabolism due to prolonged stress.

The keys include –

  • High Potency B Complex – Play a vital role within the Kreb’s cycle and the transportation chain of electrons as well as for neurological functioning support
  • Magnesium, Iodine, Tyrosine and more – Not only is Magnesium a pivotal to reactions involving cellular bioenergetics, it also protects the mitochondrial structure. In addition, it supports many aspects of neurological health, such as protection against HPA hyperactivity and neurotoxicity. Acetyl-L-Carnitine is also beneficial as it is a facility in moving fatty acids into the mitochondria which then is used as energy substrates.
  • Enhanced Bioavailability Co-Enzyme Q10 150mg – CoQ10 is important in the electron transportation chain as well as in protecting the oxidation-prone mitochondrial membrane. CoQ10 is an absolute key nutrient as it is commonly insufficient in fatigued patients.
  • Herbal Support for Adrenal Health – These are adaptogen herbs which restore HPA function, commonly from Chinese, Ayurvedic, and Western herbal medicine. Korean and Siberian ginsengs, withania and rhodiola diminishes stress-induced physical and mental fatigue and at the same time, supports healthy HPA function.

Expected Results in a Plan

If you are struggling with energy and wake with prolonged fatigue, you should get started now to turn your health in the right direction.

Most commonly with only a couple of weeks in a dedicated program, patients have reportedly made significant improvements in both mental and physical energy and able to get up in the morning. In addition, while taking up some positive dietary plans with a healthy start to the day, they often notice excessive weight drop off and a healthy weight reached.
