Your extreme fatigue might be coming from hidden sources. Nixing these spirit-depleting factors from your life will automatically help reboot your verve.
It turns out that even moderate dehydration (which results in the loss of 3 percent of your body weight) can make you feel mentally sluggish and mess with your concentration. The next time you're feeling foggy or lightheaded, don't just assume you're in serious need of some food. Try downing a glass or two of water.
2. Cell Phones
Checking your cell before bed amps up brain activity, making it harder to doze off. Plus, any electronic gadget's artificial blue light can suppress the sleep hormone melatonin. A 2011 poll by the National Sleep Foundation found that 20 percent of people ages 19 to 29 are awakened by a call, text, or e-mail at least a few nights a week. Power it down well before bedtime.
Many drugs have veiled energy-sapping side effects. Chief among them are some classes of antidepressants and certain beta-blockers used to prevent migraines or treat high blood pressure. If you start a new med and feel more lethargic than usual, see doctor Bert for an alternative. (If there isn't one, take your dose right before bed.)
While working out zaps the stress hormone cortisol, prolonged sweat sessions--like, for example, regularly running for more than 30 minutes at a steady rate--can actually rev cortisol production. Interval training (bursts of intense activity) combined with strength training (free-weight and body-weight moves) helps keep cortisol in check.
5. Low Iron
The mineral shuttles oxygen around your body and removes waste from your cells. If you're not getting around 18 milligrams a day, your body struggles to function properly and you can feel worn out; low iron levels in your diet can cause iron deficiency anemia. If you feel sluggish, call our office and ask for a simple blood test to see if you should be taking a supplement.

|Chiropractic Care and Yoga
Chiropractic care and yoga are comparable and complementary disciplines. The practice of yoga provides strength, flexibility, and centering, enhancing physical performance on multiple levels. Participants in yoga classes derive across-the-board benefits for their long-term health and well-being.
Chiropractic care could be described in very similar terms. Chiropractic care provides more energy by allowing muscles and ligaments to relax and do their jobs properly. The result is increased alertness and increased reserves of strength to do all day's tasks and activities.
Chiropractic care provides more flexibility by aligning spinal joints and increasing spinal ranges of motion. Hip joints, knees and ankles, and shoulders and arms all respond to the improved central ranges of motion. All physical movements become easier, freer, and more relaxed.
Chiropractic care improves health and well-being by improving communication between the nerve system and the rest of the body. When the body receives proper flows of information from the brain and spinal cord, it is enabled to function at peak effectiveness.
For maximum health, chiropractic care and yoga are a powerful combination.
