Tiredness is one of the most common symptoms patients report to their doctor. Excessive, continuous tiredness can have a detrimental effect on your life and those around you. Any symptoms of excessive tiredness should be investigated.
Chinese medicine holds that there are commonly three basic reasons for chronic tiredness: Deficiency, Combined condition of Deficiency and Excess (e.g stagnation of Liver-Qi (Qi meaning energy) which produces a deficiency of Spleen-Qi and causes tiredness) and Excess. Excess can cause tiredness by stopping the movement of Qi and blood.
The root cause of tiredness can come from a variety of sources. A weak constitution, overwork, physical overexertion, poor diet, severe illness and childbirth to name a few can all cause tiredness. From the Chinese Medical perspective it is important to find out where these causes are affecting the body and identify the root of the problem.
