Silene Bricet: The Unwelcome Effects of Burnout on our Wellbeing

LAMBETH, U.K. - May 25, 2023 - PRLog -- Why we suffer from burnout
It's one of the facts of life that sometimes things can get a little more stressful than we might like, and within reason that's okay. The human mind and body is designed to tolerate and heal from acute stress without too much of an issue. But when stress becomes excessive and an everyday part of life, it can have serious, negative effects on both mental and physical health.

I regularly receive new clients coming to me experiencing huge amounts of work related stress or struggles between work, life and family balance that are contributing to burnout and showing up as medical ailments, such as abdominal pain, period pain, irregular menstrual cycle, digestive disorders, fertility issues and deteriorating mental health. Burnout can be caused by either physical or emotional distress, meaning you could feel you have done very little physically, but feeling trapped in situations that are controlling, degrading and go against your core values can put the body under a significant amount of emotional stress. In an ideal world, removing yourself from the damaging situation would be best, but this simply isn't an option for many people.

Effects of burnout on the body
When the body is under too much stress, it becomes compromised. The sympathetic nervous system begins to operate in fight or flight response, which is an automatic survival mechanism where the body prepares you to respond correctly when you are faced with a life threatening or dangerous situation. This response signals the body to release adrenaline into the body and cortisol into the bloodstream which can cause a host of uncomfortable symptoms such as a fast heartbeat, shallow breathing and racing thoughts and cause damaging long term effects on the body's ability to function.

Holistic healing benefits on burnout
Acupuncture and reiki can help the body both recover from and prevent burnout symptoms in many ways. The treatment aims to restore the body's natural flow of energy, and help remove any blocks that may be preventing this flow state. These blocks can be a contributing factor to ailments in a specific place on the body. This assists the body in its natural healing capabilities. The relaxing element of the session helps to calm the nervous system and bring the body out of the fight or flight response, therefore reducing the negative effects on the body.
