Revive – Reset – Renew
Whatever we call it, when you feel as though the going is pretty tough, we sometimes need a helping hand to refresh. Natural remedies can aid those who push themselves too hard, or are over-weighed by life circumstances.
When our lives take a dip, even when most things are running well, the simplest things can feel uphill. Focus and concentration during long drives, studying for exams, preparation for a big sport event – all can take a toll.
Good health remedies work by stimulating the body’s own energy and healing powers.
And the best of those will be drug free and chemical free. And, if we’re lucky, made in New Zealand Aotearoa! The Homeopathic remedies used in REVIVE tick all those boxes.
Athletes and Fatigue
Both chronic fatigue and over-reaching and over-training in athletes can lead to issues, especially the body and mind tiredness brought on from over-stress – no matter whether that is in training, nutrition, or lifestyle.
Over-reaching and over-training syndrome in athletes can be called a fatigue continuum, in the same way as generalised stress affects non-athletes.
Athletes usually know to take a rest and/or get a good sleep, and many will use a natural remedy, whether that is for endurance or for recovery.
The Science Part
We’ve over-exerted, over-trained, climbed one hill too many (physical or mental). In those cases there can be straight-forward solutions to what we call acute fatigue – take a rest, get a good sleep, or use a natural remedy.
Longer term situations, which we call chronic fatigue, can stem from illness, flu and medical recovery. Or, and this is increasingly common in our fast-moving world today, lifestyle pressures can overwhelm. We’re lucky that these, again, may be treated with natural health solutions.
Too Busy? Too Tired?
Although fatigue can range widely from 8% to over 40% in surveys from the medical profession, secondary care and community support groups note it as a primary or associated complaint in many clients. And of course Covid-19 is the new addition to wear us down.
Fatigue affects us in many ways, and not just feeling tired, weak, or exhausted. We can feel heavy-headed, or light-headed, brain-fogged or just plain brain-tired.
When the Going gets Tough
Chronic fatigue exhibits in many ways, including not sleeping well and, over time, increasing sleep deprivation.
A combination of lack of sleep and general fatigue can also affect our whole organism, including reduced clearance of metabolic waste from the brain via the glymphatic system.
That’s where our Brain Fog can build, especially when long periods of concentration, computer work and studying increase our tiredness.
In the same way athletes can over-train, yogis and meditators (and super-achievers) can push themselves too hard. So while mindfulness practices and exercises can be great for reducing fatigue, it’s possible to over-cram mindfulness as if over-studying for an exam.
In all the cases above, natural remedies, whether lifestyle choices or health formulas, can bring both physical relief and peace of mind.
REVIVE, a homeopathic remedy from NZ Natural Formulas, can pick you up and get you going again.
Back from the Brink
A simple spray or two of Revive can lift physical and mental exhaustion, boost flagging energy and focus wavering concentration.
Also ideal for use after acute illness if you are left struggling with post viral fatigue.
