Ania Grimone L.AC's Expert Contributions
Acupuncture releases endorphins, which are body’s natural pain relieving biochemicals and they help transition the body into the parasympathetic nervous system mode. In this mode the body heals, regenerates and you also relax. Since in our busy lives we often run on excess cortisol and adrenaline, we may feel energized as our bodies are overstimulated and once you calm the system down, instead of relaxed, you feel tired, which is how your body really feels when not masked by stress hormones. My suggestion would be to always be properly hydrated, eat a balanced meal with good quality protein and low glycemic carbohydrates (fruits, vegetables, legumes, beans) appropriate for your constitutional make up and talk to your acupuncturist about it. Perhaps lowering the number of needles and/ or amount of stimulation until you build up your resources may be appropriate. Active stress management and adequate sleep will also support healthy energy levels. Hope this helps. READ MORE
