Battery Depletion: The Cyclical Nature of Physical and Mental Exhaustion

September 18, 2017

Deep Root Medicine, fatigue, exhaustion, stress, depression

Throughout our series, we’ve discussed the signs and symptoms of issues like fatigue, stress, depression and lack of focus that permeate the daily lives of many Americans. While identifying the root causes and symptoms of exhaustion is important, it is equally as important to be aware of the interdependent nature of these problems. Failing to understand the interconnectivity between symptoms can spiral us further into the cycle of mental and physical exhaustion.

With so much information readily available online, you may be inclined to ease a specific problem by Googling your way through forums, self-diagnosing your symptoms, and look for a short term measure to provide temporary relief. Unfortunately, short-term solutions can mask deeper realities that are driving the seemingly unrelated symptoms. The truth, over and over, is that every part of our health and wellbeing is interdependent on every other. They cannot be separated out in lived experience, and when we treat any one of them, it is necessary to consider them as they interconnect with one another.

The Deep Root Way

At Deep Root Medicine, we take a thorough and multi-faceted approach to your health that addresses the root causes of your symptoms to promote wellness from within.

How do we do this?

  • Thorough Analysis: Talking about your health isn’t always easy or efficient, and that’s okay. We facilitate a safe and comfortable environment during the client intake process and throughout treatment in order to truly understand the key pieces of your health.


  • Holistic Methodology: We address the mind and body in totality. What does that mean? We work to find the physical, nutritional, environmental, psychological, emotional and even spiritual factors that can affect a patient’s life and health. We believe our patients are active participants in their health and work to empower them through education and comprehensive treatment plans.


  • Emphasis on Lifestyle: Because parts of our health are quite interdependent, we work with patients to create sustainable lifestyle changes that can have a long-term positive impact on quality of life.

Sick of being tired? Not feeling like your best self? Maybe you’re simply just curious. Don’t hesitate to send us a message or give us a call. The first consultation is completely free and at the very least, you’ll walk away with some new insights on your health and wellbeing.
