Adrenal Fatigue Acupuncture Clinic in Seattle, WA
Acupuncture Treatment for Adrenal Fatigue
In today's fast-paced, technology-driven world, many of us feel tired from time to time. For some, this tired feeling can become full-blown exhaustion that interferes with day-to-day life. This can signal a severe problem known as adrenal fatigue. That said, you may be able to find relief in the form of acupuncture.
Under the holistic, alternative and integrative field of healthcare, chronic fatigue suffers may benefit from acupuncture. With acupuncture, strategically placed needles are inserted into the body. These needles are said to relieve pain and help the flow of energy through the body. With energy a short supply these days-especially for those who have adrenal fatigue-this may be the treatment option for you.
What are the Symptoms of Adrenal Fatigue?
Adrenal fatigue typically presents with a unique set of symptoms, many of which you may have experienced or continue to experience:
- Weight loss, no appetite
- Hyperpigmentation (darkening of the skin)
- Hypotension (low blood pressure)
- Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar)
- Erectile dysfunction
- Decreased libido
- Hair loss
- Hyperkalemia (high potassium)
- Leg, abdominal and lower back pain
What Causes Adrenal Fatigue?
Adrenal fatigue is said to be commonly caused by poor sleep habits, poor diet, stress, and depression. However, this common form of fatigue has a big sister known as Addison's disease-a severe form of cortisol deficiency produced by inefficient adrenal glands. In the most severe cases, this is known as addisoneon crisis which can be life threatening.
If you experience hyperpigmentation and fainting seek emergency medical attention immediately.
Holistic Care and Adrenal Fatigue
Back to general fatigue, the holistic model of treatment may be for you. Concentrating on the body as a whole, holistic treatment may also include diet as well as acupuncture. This holistic approach may treat the underlying cause of the majority of fatigue cases-poor nutrition. By eating what your body needs, not only what's readily available, you may be able to curb poor nutrition and regain energy.
Another pillar of the holistic model is an emphasis on relaxation. Taking up yoga or meditation can help reduce your stress levels by teaching relaxation and stress management techniques. With lower stress levels, you may feel more relaxed and less fatigued.
If you've been feeling sluggish, having trouble getting out of bed, and have lost your appetite, treatment of adrenal fatigue with acupuncture may be the option for you.
