Overstrain and Nervous system

Overload and Nervous system Chronic problems of excessive ambition

Our training, lifestyle and even holidays often lead us to stressful conditions that are not stimulating, and outweigh the body influence. One of the main reasons is the fatigue of the nervous system, well known in our sport. The article “Neural charge workouts” reviewed workout on the edge. And what happens if the edge is overstepped? How to achieve a balance of the nervous system in overstrain?

We all know that the main treatment comes with rest and recovery. In the daily cycle tranquility during meals and at bedtime it is crucial. We can not a rest, if you’re worried.

An hour before bedtime should be devoted to relaxation, and allows the nervous system to relax in parasympathetic mode. In addition, massage can help both the body and the head. Such therapy might help us cope with fatigue.

Each fatigue seemed to disappear with rest and peace?

No, not all. Sometimes fatigue goes too far, affecting the central nervous system. The brain is the largest and most important part of our entire nervous system. It is part of the system that is constantly on autopilot and control many systems without us having to think about it. For example, it controls:

  • Breathing;
  • Heart rhythm;
  • Body temperature

In fact, it controls every part of our physical functions every second and every day. Another important body for physical activity is the spinal cord, which in turn controls the blocking of muscles. If they are affected, the problem of fatigue becomes formidable and converted into the pathological.

There are different manifestations of this problem, but it seems conditionally most accurately we can identify ourselves with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS – conditionally, because the causes of this syndrome are not clear, but the condition and symptoms are characteristic and persistent fatigue).

A meta-analysis published in 2004 by five random surveys found that patients with CFS who receive therapy exercises are less fatigued after 12 weeks than participants in the control group, the authors conclude that the prudent use hierarchically structured light loads can be used as a treatment for chronic fatigue syndrome.

Research on Brenu shows that there are significant changes in the blood count of these patients and largely state similar picture of autoimmune disease. Open the question remains: Does the syndrome causes blood count or disease in question is simply a symptom of already available, but undiagnosed autoimmune disease?

Other studies have linked chronic fatigue with orthostatic intolerance (it’s as dizziness sudden change in the situation – by squatting or sitting to the right example). The latter has a direct link with blood pressure and as if there chronic fatigue syndrome is questionable how to diagnose because of conditions of blood pressure fatigue is also a symptom.


This means that even in cases of fatigue and chronic fatigue one of the options for addressing the problem is after the period of active rest, which is mandatory to maintain at least a light physical activity.

It is important to not allow fatigue to be made permanent – it seems that the long-term it is simply transformed into a universal reduced working capacity becomes resistant to physical activity and possibly include other symptoms and conditions.

Obviously, if there is something we can learn from neurolinguistics, it is that it is better to maintain and adequate motivation to fight the process.

Ultimately, if you do not talk about physiological abnormalities, fatigue question is surmountable problem by simply need to arm ourselves with patience and act against it with reason and consistency.
