Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Conventional medicine suggests that the criteria for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome consists of:

  • Debilitating fatigue that interferes with normal daily functions.
  • Fatigue not alleviated by rest
  • Fatigued that is worsened by mental, physical or emotional exertion.
  • Fatigue that usually lasts longer than 6 months
  • and many more…

From a natural perspective, we always look at cause and affect. We look at vitamin and mineral levels, heavy metal toxicity, viral/bacteria load, hormonal imbalances including adrenal function, mitochondrial dysfunction and so much more.

We often find an imbalance in hormones, adrenal fatigue or even a viral and / or bacterial load which is the primary cause of fatigue. Once the root cause is treated, patients often have a better quality of life and reduced fatigue levels within 2-12 months.

It sounds like a long time, but often patients have been struggling for years before they get to this point in their treatment plan.

Symptoms of CFS can include:

  • Unrelenting fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Memory loss
  • Joint pain¬†
  • Poor concentration
  • Headaches
  • Enlarged lymph nodes
  • Chills / fevers / night sweats
  • Digestive issues
  • Dizziness
  • Low blood pressure
  • and more…
