Stress and Fatigue The Link Between Stress And Fatigue

Where has my energy gone?

I feel stressed and anxious all the time! I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired?

Stress has many faces and creeps into our lives from all directions. No matter what causes it, stress puts the body and the mind on edge. The body is flooded with stress hormones, your heart pounds, muscles tense, breathing quickens, the stomach churns leaving you flat and fatigued.

One of the most common complaints we see in our clinic is lack of energy and fatigue usually caused by long-term stress. Chronic stress plays havoc with all your body systems and drains your energy as your body and mind burn up your energy stores reacting to the perceived threat.  Stress is a major cause of high blood pressure and heart disease and can dampen the immune system, increasing your susceptibility to colds and other infections. Stress contributes to asthma, digestive disorders, skin disorders, and a myriad of other health problems. Research supports that high levels of stress speed up the aging process.

Originally this response collectively termed the “fight-or-flight” response, has helped humans survive threats such as animal attacks, fires, floods, and conflict with other humans. Today, obvious dangers like these aren’t the main things that trigger the stress response. Any situation you perceive as threatening, or that requires you to adjust to a change, can set of these hormones, sitting in traffic, getting the kids ready for school, deadlines, a change of house or settling into a new country, the list is long and its happening daily!
