Reasons for the appearance of chronic drowsiness
The chronic drowsiness is a condition that can be caused by different reasons. Sometimes at the base of it lies a disturbed biological rhythm of the organism or just regular fatigue. It can also be caused by sleep disorders or the taking of certain medicines.
Regardless of the source on the problem, the lack of a fulfilling rest and the feeling of being incapable to work create discomfort and tension in everyone. Along with that there can also appear anxiety, distraction, lack of concentration, reduced tone and last but not least this affects unfavorably our emotions and moods.

Drowsiness can appear in certain days, but also for longer periods of time which makes it a chronic condition. Then it is already considered a health problem, which we should take measures to overcome.
It is not uncommon for such complaints to occur after a serious illness or shock. On the other hand, drowsiness makes us feel hungry, reluctant to exercise, and this leads to weight problems, for example.
It also has a negative effect on the skin, which is explained by the lack of enough vitamins and minerals in the body.
In other words, such a condition leads to a vicious circle from which it is difficult to get out without seeking specialized help. Total fatigue quickly burns a person’s energy and this poses a risk of lowered immunity and triggering various diseases. Therefore, chronic drowsiness requires a complete change in the rhythm of life.
Ayurveda – a way to safely deal with chronic drowsiness
Ayurveda offers useful practices and therapies that are widely applicable and most of all they are helpful in the general recovery, purification and toning not only of the physique but also of the mind. This means changing the diet, alternating periods of activity and rest, including sports and environmentally friendly activities in everyday life.
Ayurveda explains the disease states with a disturbed energy balance in the body. It also refers to chronic drowsiness, the causes of which lie in the imbalance between Dosha, Vata and Pitta. To overcome all of this, we can rely on an environmentally friendly approach.

Food is an important element of the change
It is best to remove from the menu all the so-called harmful products, such as semi-finished products, large amounts of carbohydrates, unhealthy fats, food containing too many sugars, colors and stabilizers, etc.
It is recommended to replace them with fresh fruits and vegetables, dairy products, nuts, cereals, pure meats, fish products, natural juices or eggs. Last but not least are herbal teas and hydration of the body, which requires at least 2 liters of water per day.
Spices and herbs are important for nutrition, according to Ayurveda. They are a helper in many cases for the proper functioning of the organs. All products that speed up metabolism, help digestion and increase tone are suitable.
Black pepper, garlic, lemon, ginger, turmeric, cinnamon, chamomile, linden, thyme and hawthorn are a must on the table in order to enjoy excellent health.
Detoxification of the body
Detoxification is a way to purify ourselves by getting rid of all harmful toxins. Accumulations of toxins make the body ill, inhibit the work of organs and disrupt the body’s natural rhythm.
Appropriate therapies, according to Ayurveda, require systematic removal of accumulated substances. It is also achieved with the help of herbal decoctions and oils. It is best done under the guidance of a licensed healer and with eco products.
Water treatments and massages also help detoxify. Likewise, they are the main way to restore harmony, calm and charge with positive feelings. Their secret is in the good influence on the blood circulation, as well as their impact on the largest organ – the skin, to be purified as well.

Improving sleep is directly dependent on emotions
The tense person does not have the opportunity to relax and indulge in complete rest. For this reason, when tension, stress, anxiety, etc. are eliminated, there is a greater chance to speed up the body’s recovery process and return it to a normal rhythm of work.
In this regard, moderate physical activity plays a positive role. Ayurveda recommends practicing yoga. Therapeutic gymnastics helps with various diseases and conditions, but it has also been proven to restore a person’s energy balance. There are exercises in yoga that are less strenuous. They are suitable for anyone who has no practice and is just a beginner.
It is important for a person to learn to perform the asanas as correctly as possible, as well as to breathe and exhale, because this is what energizes him/her.
The good thing about yoga is that it can be practiced at home or outdoors in a group. There is easily accessible information and video tutorials on the Internet to help anyone try out the types of exercises and their effect on the body.
Practices and others
Sufferers of chronic drowsiness can visit an Ayurveda clinic, where there are many more opportunities to apply a variety of therapies with established positive effects. A series of procedures in combination with the right food and lifestyle will definitely lead to a lasting and quality change.
In such situations, alternative treatments save the need to oversaturate the body with drugs that often pose serious health risks with prolonged use.
The specialized clinics also offer many of the necessary herbs and foods that are more specific and are used under the expert guidance of doctors trained in Ayurveda. When applying new foods, it is best to ask yourself how it is best to process and consume them.
There are also therapies that, after being applied by a specialist, everyone can train and continue with the healing methods at home, following the instructions.
