Out of exhaustion: burnout and stress
What is it about
"I never thought something like this would ever happen to me" is a typical sentence from burnout clients who have become exhausted and depressed after prolonged stress. The smallest effort is too much for them, the lowest hurdle still too high.
Burn-out syndrome describes a severe emotional and physical exhaustion in which the quality of life deteriorates drastically and those affected suffer greatly.
Exhausted, empty, burnt out? Burnout starts in the cell metabolism!
Excessive stress and mental strain increase the need for nutrients in particular. Supplying certain micronutrients and vitamins can therefore help to cover this increased need and avoid the health consequences of a deficiency.
Phytotherapy can also work wonders in cases of exhaustion. In addition to generally supportive medicinal plants, adaptogens help the body to better adapt to stressful situations. This enables it to cope more adequately with stress of any kind (e.g. environmental toxins, infections, physical overload or emotional stress).
Adaptogens are not directed against specific diseases, but rather help the body to better protect itself against pathogenic external influences and to adapt to stress.
Such medicinal plants soothe stress without making you tired, and at the same time stimulate you without making you feel exhilarated.
