Always tired? Beat Fatigue with Traditional Chinese Medicine

Chronic fatigue is becoming a major issue in our modern society. More and more adults and even children are starting to feel tired…all…the…time. Some feel tired because of issues such as insomnia; others feel tired due to poor diet or lifestyle decisions. And it is also not uncommon to suffer from fatigue despite following a healthy lifestyle and getting enough sleep.  

Fatigue can result from quite a few different underlying issues. There could be a disharmony in your balance-energy, your body might not be able to absorb certain nutrients from food or some of your lifestyle choices might even be to blame for your fatigue.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is one of the best and only successful treatments for fatigue. This is because prescribed drugs will only treat the symptoms and give you a short-lived boost in energy where TCM involves identifying the underlying issue to help you counter the thing that is triggering these chronically tired feelings.

At Evergreen CMC our practitioners will identify the root cause of your problem and will then begin by restoring your energy balance through various treatments like the following options.


Acupuncture is frequently – yet not always – used to treat fatigue. By triggering specific points in your energy field the body’s communication is restored and your body starts to regenerate. Acupuncture is known to be effective because it restores balance to your qi energy and is often considered the quickest treatment since it often has immediate results.

Diet Therapy

The right type of diet can make a huge difference in your body’s energy levels. Your TCM practitioner will enquire about your normal eating habits and might then prescribe diet therapy in order to get your energy balance restored. Diet therapy could mean abstaining from sugar intake, alcohol, and cold foods and focusing on warm nourishing foods that are packed in energising food sources such as iron.

Herbal Therapy

Herbal remedies can do wonders for your body. Our practitioners work with over 5000 different types of herb and plant extracts and can create herbal mixtures that will help nourish, detox and heal your body. With the right herbal therapy, your body will receive all the needed nourishment for restored balance and you might even have to take herbs such as ginseng root or sweet wormwood that could fight off fatigue quickly.


The human body is a strange thing. If you don’t get enough rest, you become worn out, stressed and tired. If you sleep too much, you start feeling bad because your body adapts to this type of habit and constantly craves sleep. There are also different types of rest. You can sleep for hours and still feel tired or you can enjoy a relaxing deep sleep that will revive your spirit. Rest also comes in many different forms. You can even find rest in different types of activity such as yoga, reading or by even enjoying nature.

Lifestyle Changes

In many cases, your TCM practitioner might advise you on some lifestyle changes. There are quite a few different types of lifestyle changes you might have commit to in order to enjoy a better life. You might be asked to abstain from technology or to keep technology limited because these types of devices tend to overwork your mind. Or you might be advised to start working out or to start enjoying a fun hobby such as dancing.

Deep Tissue Massage

Stress can have a huge effect on your energy levels. When all your muscles are tensed, you tend to feel exhausted and sore. A deep tissue massage can be a good way to get rid of tension and to relax your mind for instant fatigue relief.

Don’t let chronic fatigue get the better of you and your life. It is much better to seek out professional help before this condition starts affecting your health for the worse. Make your booking with Evergreen CMC and we will help restore your energy levels so you can live to your full potential.
