Is Fatigue a lack of Energy?

​ There’s nothing like a good night’s sleep to recharge the body’s batteries – except that’s not how it works. Some people think that going to sleep is like plugging in your phone to the charger at night. Give it 8 hours and you wake with full batteries and you’re good to go all day. If you […]

Physical or Psychological?

Is it physical or psychological – that is the question! Well actually – It’s NOT the question. It hasn’t been for a while thanks to how we have moved on from our understanding of health.
