We need deep rest at night to restore and rejuvenate our system. When the nervous system is always “on”, a person experiences adrenal fatigue. Their mind is unable to shut off the incessant mental chatter, worry, stress and anxiety of daily living.
Do you notice any of these symptoms?
- feeling wiped out upon waking
- restless sleep
- low back pain
- hormonal problems
- weight gain or sluggish metabolism
- food cravings or addictions
These symptoms may indicate that you have adrenal fatigue.
So what can you do?
Most people have adrenal fatigue or weakness because they are using a lot of will power to get through life. They work hard, and tend to other people’s needs, but ignore the rest and reset. Or they have too much energy tied up in unconscious patterns that hold them back. The unconscious patterns often manifest in addictive behaviors or underlying sense of anxiety.
Stress has a direct correlation to whether or not you are on your life’s path.
You feel stressed because you are fighting against yourself and your true desires. Many people are disconnected from their true purpose. Because of this, they don’t know themselves on a deep and intimate level. They make decisions that lead to distress and distractions.
In this sense, adrenal weakness is as much a spiritual issues as a mental one.
But acupuncture can help kickstart your adrenal function by calming your nervous system. It can reroute circuitry that has gone rouge, and help you relax and sleep. When you can get your body to reboot in this way, you will have more freedom to make other changes in your life. Rearranging your life and exploring your true path is not an easy task. Acupuncture can help you ease into this process. It will give you the support necessary to make challenging and bold choices. So that you can take transformative action.
