Executives: Fatigue fallout
By Causenta Wellness
In today’s fast-paced, high-stress, overly connected world, it’s no wonder people are overwhelmed. Then, add to that, being in charge of thousands of employees and tens of millions of dollars.
Wait, there’s more; pile on family commitments and community service projects. Are you tired just thinking about this? Is this actually your life?
For executives and many others trying desperately to create a manageable work/life balance, fatigue and the symptoms associated with it can have adverse effects on health and wellness.
What is fatigue?
Fatigue is more than just being tired from time to time or not having a lot of energy every so often. Medically, fatigue is a condition characterized by feelings of tiredness that are constant and limiting – meaning it interferes with your ability to lead life as you normally would. It is similar to feeling like you always have the flu.
What causes fatigue?
In some cases, medical conditions can cause extreme fatigue. These include allergic rhinitis, anemia, depression, fibromyalgia, food allergies, and others. While these diseases are real health concerns, for most people, their symptoms – including fatigue – can be managed through medications or simple lifestyle changes and have a positive long-term prognosis.
Sudden episodes of extreme fatigue, which executives often suffer from, can be a result of extreme stress, too much travel, and poor habits such as not eating a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, excess alcohol intake, and lack of exercise.
Common fatigue symptoms
Some symptoms of fatigue may vary based on the root cause of the condition, but, generally, people experiencing fatigue will report:
- Being constantly tired or exhausted
- Having a lack of motivation to begin or complete simple, daily tasks
- Finding it difficult to concentrate
- Lacking energy
- Feeling weak – mentally and physically
Additional potential fatigue symptoms may include:
- Anxiety or irritability
- Dizziness or vertigo
- Fainting or loss of consciousness
- Feeling cold
- Muscle pain
- Rapid heartbeat
Address fatigue now to avoid problems down the road
The presence or absence of these symptoms can help your doctor determine if there is an underlying cause of your fatigue and, if so, what it is. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms coupled with fatigue, you should contact your healthcare provider.
If you are not experiencing additional symptoms, but still feel consistently tired and unmotivated, you should consider that you may be experiencing a sudden episode of extreme fatigue and should also consult a healthcare professional.
In these cases, the solutions are usually less medication-based and more lifestyle driven. And, while you may be able to overcome the situation on your own, it is important to realize that repetitive or prolonged episodes of fatigue can lead to more serious health problems down the road that you want to avoid.
Wellness plans for executives
Overcome your extreme fatigue symptoms and live your best life by understanding more about the causes and how to manage them. You can also consider seeking holistic care that can unpack not only your physical health, but also your mental and emotional factors and create an individualized plan to address your fatigue.
At Causenta, we frequently work with executives to help them prevent sudden episodes of extreme fatigue and manage their symptoms on a regular basis. We accomplish these goals through a combination of healthy diet and regular exercise customized to each patient’s genetic makeup and health, as well as various technologies and other strategies that can support the process.
The dedicated and expert team at Causenta knows that each of our patients is unique. There are approximately 22,000 genes in the human body and no two people are the same physically, emotionally, or mentally. Because of this, we customize every wellness program to best meet each patient’s goals and needs.
We also believe in measuring the effectiveness of our treatments. Before and after various strategies are employed, we evaluate every patient to determine if what we are doing is working for them.
This is especially important with our cancer patients as various medications can work very differently between people. We never want to have someone performing certain exercises or undergoing a procedure that is unnecessary and not helping with their overall health.
Our technologies can help erase fatigue
Many executives we work with also appreciate our technology tools that allow us to jumpstart their wellness and get them feeling better sooner. We always pair technology with basic good habits to promote the best long-term results for our patients.
Some of the state-of-the-art tools that are best suited to treat sudden episodes of fatigue in executives are:
- Halo: The Halo by Magnesphere is a futuristic-looking, non-invasive device that surrounds patients in a clear tent-like bubble while they relax in a recliner. The Halo works by emitting pulse electromagnetic field energy at pico-tesla strengths throughout the body to relax the nervous system as a natural remedy for fatigue and other symptoms related to chronic stress.
