How to overcome chronic fatigue
Mental stress, physical exertion or over exhaustion causes fatigue and low energy in most of the people and hence fatigue is quite a common problem. This is the time to take a well-deserved vacation!
Fatigue can also occur if you live a cosy and comfortable life. In this case, fatigue can be due to boredom or low motivation. The only way to get rid of it is to increase your energy.
Ojas (immune reserve) in Ayurveda is an abundant source of boundless energy. Ojas generates strength, vitality, immunity, enthusiasm, the stability of mind, nourishment of the mind and much more. The nutrients in our food transform into tissues. The result is ojas, a reserve of pure energy.
People with good ojas do not get tired easily. Low Agni, undernourishment of Dhatus (tissues), mental stress, tension, lack of purpose in life, Aam (toxins) and infections reduces the “Ojas”.
Ultimately, mental and physical energy is reduced, and you feel fatigued and feel low in energy.
An immediate lifestyle changes to reduce Aam toxins, increasing the digestion (Agni), and nourishing the Ojas (immune power) is especially important to retrieve your energy level and chronic fatigue syndrome
