Dealing with Muscle and Joint Pain and Fatigue
- by Stephen Touhey
Unfortunately, fatigue, muscle, and joint pain can be a natural part of the aging process. Our bodies have carried us through life and they may need a little extra TLC at some point.
Fatigue can creep up on you over time or seemingly out of nowhere. The most common causes of fatigue in aging adults are medical issues, sleep problems, emotional struggles, and poor lifestyle habits. When you’re exhausted it’s hard to live and enjoy the life you want to, which only causes additional stress and even more fatigue.
Muscle and joint pain can be a real drag and can impact many areas of your life. Common causes are medical conditions, stress, overuse, injuries, and inflammation. Muscle and joint pain can make even the simplest activities difficult and might even stop you from doing the things you usually enjoy.
It’s always wise to see your doctor to rule out medical conditions or receive treatment if necessary. Fortunately, there are also ways you can start dealing with your fatigue, muscle, and joint pain right at home too.
Boost your immune system
When you have a weak immune system your body isn’t able to work as efficiently as it could, which can result in fatigue and inflammation that leads to muscle and joint pain. Luckily there are many ways to naturally boost your immune system right at home.
A great way to start is to eat a healthy diet rich in fruits and vegetables. Be sure to include super immunity boosters like fresh garlic and ginger, turmeric, fruits high in vitamin C, and foods high in vitamin E like avocados, almonds, and sunflower seeds. Probiotic fermented foods and drinking green tea have also been shown to boost immunity.
Taking a vitamin D3 supplement and wearing a BioActivate immune-boosting patch are both easy ways to boost your immunity too. Low vitamin D3 levels are directly linked to lowered immune function and increased risk of infection, so a daily supplement is a no-brainer. The BioActivate bio-frequency patch has no ingredients but works with your body’s natural energy field. It might seem like magic, but thanks to advances in quantum physics you can boost your immune system simply by wearing a patch.
Sometimes fatigue can simply be due to not prioritizing sleep. Of course, some people really are that busy, but most of us have some room for improvement when it comes to getting to bed earlier.
Getting 7-8 hours of sleep per night can also help boost your immune system and combat stress. Since immunity and stress are both tied in with the inflammation that causes muscle and joint pain, prioritizing sleep is an important step in finding relief.
If you struggle getting to sleep at night, try a BioActivate deep sleep patch and you’ll gently drift off to dreamland while your body replenishes itself.
Actively work to reduce stress
It’s easy to say you’re going to try to manage your stress, but what you really need is action. Stress has a tremendous effect on our bodies. Not only can it wreak havoc on the immune system causing fatigue and pain, but it also can cause painful muscle tension.
Working to actively reduce stress can take some practice, as does building any new habit. For some people it can seem like a chore in the beginning, but with time you’ll see big payoffs. Some great ways to reduce stress include tai-chi, yoga, meditation, daily journaling, or mindfulness practices.
To give your stress-reduction efforts an extra boost, try wearing a BioActivate clarity patch. Using your body’s own natural frequency, this little patch helps bring your body into soothing homeostasis.
Take epsom salt baths
Epsom salt baths allow the magnesium sulfate to enter your body through the skin, which results in releasing tension in your muscles. The magnesium you absorb in the bath can also help beat fatigue and help maintain joint cartilage. Epsom salt baths are a great way to unwind and rejuvenate at the end of the day. Try adding a few drops of lavender essential oil for some extra relaxation.
Try spot pain reduction
For muscle and joint pain, try using hot and cold packs on the painful area. You’ll want to use a hot pack for 20 minutes followed by a cold pack for 20 minutes each day. The heat will cause increased blood flow, which helps the muscles relax and the cold will reduce blood flow and lessen inflammation.
For natural pain relief try a BioActivate pain relief patch that works with your body’s natural energy field. All you do is press a patch over the painful area and wait for the paint to melt away.
