Chronic Fatigue Recovery involves a multi-pronged approach
Chronic Fatigue Recovery doesn’t mean go back to doing what we did that triggered it off in the first place. It forces us to change our lifestyle in major radical ways. Have you noticed that when you try to resume activities that you did prior to a rest period – your body hits back with fatigue or pain? 🙁
Does this mean laying down in defeat?
Today’s TRE workshop showed us that we can recover if we are prepared to listen to our body, learn about causes and heal them, learn how manage the body’s reactions, understand the stress response and how to build resilience – we can begin a slow recovery.
Taking Charge of our Healing
At our workshop we discussed the Polyvagal Theory and here is an informative book ON SPECIAL THIS WEEKEND $7.49 🙂
It looks complicated doesn’t it? It covers technical information but not a lot of specific ‘fix-it’ info. He mentions neuromodulation of the Vagus nerve treatment, so I’ve googled it and found a review worth reading which also gives a better picture of what it entails.
If healing fatigue conditions was simple, it wouldn’t be such a wide-spread problem. Whilst you are giving yourself the important rest that you need, why not inspire yourself by having a read.
The first step to recovery is EDUCATION about the causes where you will relate to what applies to you! From there you can make some decisions about what you will cut out of your life, and what you will add. Scan down to an earlier blog about one of the basics to address 🙂
Relationship Support & Understanding
Like all trauma-related situations, it’s difficult for the rest of the family when trauma hits one of them. The family resists change, so when the most active member has pushed themselves too hard and ended up with a Fatigue Condition – it’s really hard for the others to pick up all the extra work – plus give empathetic support to the one who is exhausted.
