Chronic fatigue is often caused by viral infections such as glandular fever and bacterial infections like pneumonia. Rest, sleep and treating the immune system is typically the standard focus for treating chronic fatigue.
In contrast, adrenal fatigue can take many years to develop, and it develops as a result of overworked adrenal glands.
The adrenal glands become overworked when the body is in constant “flight or fight” mode, continually triggering the adrenal glands to produce aldosterone, cortisol, and male sex hormones known as adrenal androgens. As the adrenal glands become overworked, they begin to have difficulty producing these hormones resulting in the adrenal fatigue symptoms many people experience.
At Well Being Dublin the aim of treatments with Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine and Naturopathy is to strengthen vitality, improve quality of life and restore equilibrium.
The cornerstone of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is what we call “pattern differentiation.” As informed by this diagnostic framework, Anne don’t simply treat named diseases, she treats patterns. Patterns are groups of signs and symptoms, and the patterns identified in Chinese medicine have been used to help billions of people for thousands of years.
Compared to conventional approaches to mental health, Traditional Chinese Medicine has a unique approach to Fatigue.
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, conditions such as back pain could reflect as both physical and mental disharmony within the individual and are reflective of an individual “Pattern of Disharmony”.
Personalised Treatment Plan
No matter if a client is attending for acupuncture, herbal medicine or naturopathy, a treatment plan will be based on a personalised in-depth consultation to first evaluate causality and identity this “Pattern”.
The initial consultation takes account of all possible contributions or influences with regards to Adrenal or Chronic Fatigue. (e.g. co-morbidities, immune status, stressors, family history, hormonal status, co-morbidities, stressors, environmental factors, medications, diet and lifestyle factors etc.).
A personalized treatment plan will be put in place then to reducing acute symptoms and restore equilibrium to the body; to improve overall mental health and overall wellness.
That’s considering the principle that T.C.M and holistic medicine in general is a mind/body medicine which aims to optimise the health and wellbeing of the whole person.
