WHY AM I SO TIRED?
After a full day of physical work it is natural that we are comfortably tired.
After a full night's rest, we awake ready to face a new day with vim, vigor
But what would cause us to feel like we are running out of gas at three or
four o'clock in the afternoon. Or worse yet, wake up almost as tired as when
we went to bed?
There can be a number of contributing factors to excessive tiredness. In the
majority of cases there is usually more than one factor involved. Not receiving
the proper rest needed is probably the most easily understood reason for tiredness.
This often shows up in the individual who works excessively, maybe working double
shifts, and doesn't give the body a chance to recuperate through rest and recreation.
A factor to the "I'm tired" syndrome is intense thinking involving
fear, worry, anger, jealousy, etc. Stress from such thinking is like floorboarding
the gas pedal in your car with the transmission in neutral. You expend a lot
of energy and get nowhere!!
Some authorities say we can use up as much as 80% of our energies at night
digesting a late, large meal.
The ignition and electrical system of a car is comparable to the nervous system
of the human body. Due to falls, injuries or stress, the human spine can be
twisted or curved until it begins to put pressure on or irritate the spinal
cord and its branches that exit from between the vertebrae. When this occurs,
chronic fatigue or tiredness can result.
Regardless of the cause of chronic tiredness, the fastest way to restore the
body's nervous system to normal is through chiropractic adjustments to the spine.
