I have chronic fatigue (whatever that is) and have been doing TRE (Tension & Trauma Release Exercises) for a while.
Many have reported good success in healing from fatigue using TRE, and it’s perhaps not so surprising.
Neurogenic tremors allow the body to release tension and trauma (physically and emotionally), and this – in turn – releases and makes available the energy and resources previously tied up in maintaining the tension and trauma.
I have found other things helpful too:
Inquiry into my thoughts about the symptoms (labels, what they mean) and any stressful stories, including the most basic ones.
Loving kindness. Meeting what’s here – including the symptoms and my reactions to it – with love.
Gratitude. All-inclusive gratitude practice. I am grateful for…… and include anything in your life, what’s easy to feel grateful for and what it’s more challenging to find gratitude for.
Natural rest. Allowing what’s here – this field of experience – as it is. Noticing it’s already allowed as it is. Spending time with this, now and then through the day.
Feeling sensations as sensations, especially any sensations associated with the fatigue. (The sensations interpreted as fatigue, brain fog, resistance, fear, sadness etc.) This can be made easier through inquiry into words and images associated with these sensations.
Following my guidance and my heart. Inquiring into the way my mind stops itself from living this. Following my guidance even if there is fear. (Feeling off track can be draining.)
A good – and not very strict – diet, consisting mainly of simple and ordinary foods, similar to that our ancestors would have eaten. (Not much processed food, or sugar, dairy or wheat.) Drinking plenty of water. (Mostly in the form of herbal and spice teas, enough to keep the urine light colored or clear.)
Spending time in nature. Find your spot. Go for walks. Sit and rest. Soak it in. Allow nature to gently work on you. Walk barefoot.
Strength training, although not in excess.
Herbs. (Eleuthero, rhodiola, chulen, Stangelands Urtete etc.)
Engaging in nourishing activities and relationships. Dropping, as far as possible, draining activities and social engagement.
