Overcoming Tiredness and Exhaustion
Out of Stock
With our stressful, busy lives, most people experience tiredness sometimes. Following some rest and relaxation and a good night's sleep, tiredness generally disappears, leaving us refreshed and ready to face our usual activities. For some people, however, tiredness becomes an ongoing or chronic problem which severely affects their quality of life, their relationships and their day-to-day functioning. One in 10 people suffer from persistent tiredness, with women more likely to be affected than men. Severe tiredness is a common reason for people visiting their GP. This book looks at: measuring tiredness; reasons for fatigue including medical causes such as diabetes, thyroid and cardiac problems; improving your energy; improving your sleep; nutritional issues; how your doctor can help; and, complementary remedies.
