Are you worried about not being able to do anything about the extreme exhaustion you tend to feel, the frequency of which seems to be increasing from day today?

Your exhaustion could be either physical or mental, or both. Conventional medicine would, of course, be able to treat you with various drugs that have their own side effects.

But are you aware that you can overcome this problem and lead a normal life with a few lifestyle and dietary modifications?

You can become your usual energetic self in a short time if you adopt some of the methods suggested by natural remedies.


In the case of physical exhaustion, you would find that you are fatigued to the extent of being simply unable to continue with your normal physical activity, whatever it may be, any further, and you would ‘drop-down dead’ so to say.

There is a tendency to want to lie down for a while to recoup your energies.  Your muscles feel weak,  and you are just unable to exert your muscular strength any further.

When you are mentally fatigued, it is quite possible that you can lack concentration and focus.    You are just not in the present moment when you are mentally fatigued; You tend to feel drowsy and may experience cognitive problems.


The main cause of physical fatigue is physical exertion. Still, other causes, such as lack of sufficient sleep, anemia, digestive disorders, nutritional deficiencies, dehydration, or blood loss.

Diabetes and other underlying illnesses, i.e., hypothyroidism, cancer can also cause physical exhaustion.

The causes of mental exhaustion are too much mental stress, overloading of mental capacity, staying up late continuously to complete mental tasks.

Other causes can be psychological, such as depression, boredom, inactivity, and excessive negative emotions.

Natural Treatment:

Take a little time in the morning to plan your day.  It can also be a good idea to exercise moderately in the morning since exercise gives energy and reduces stress.

Align with your internal clock – you need to feel sensitivity towards your body’s peak timings and make the best use of them.

If you have a habit of smoking, you can seriously consider giving it up –it starves the tissues of oxygen, and the result is physical exhaustion.

Ensure that you have a minimum of 7-8 hours of sleep every night.  If necessary, you can have a short nap during the afternoons as well.  It will restore your physical strength as well as your mental faculties.

Cut down your intake of coffee and other caffeinated drinks.  Though you tend to feel a boost of energy immediately after a cup of coffee,  in actual fact, it tends to make one less alert after a while.

A warm bath after an exhausting day is a perfect remedy for physical fatigue.   A cold shower during the day, when you feel run down,  can work equally well.

Ensure that you drink plenty of water all through the day.  Water is necessary to keep all your muscles in good order.  Dehydration can also cause exhaustion.

While meditating in the morning, try to connect with the sun.  Feel the energy from the sun reaching you and filling every cell of your body with light and energy.  It is a good start to the day.

Surround yourself with warm colors, which will enhance your mood.  Red, Orange, yellow, and green are particularly helpful.

Make sure your meals are well balanced.  Take nutritional supplements as required.  Lack of iron and the nutrients required to absorb it can cause fatigue.

For this, you may also need to ensure that there is a sufficient time gap between your afternoon tea and lunch.
