Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Are you suffering from a stubborn chronic fatigue?

Is exhaustion severely compromising your life?

Oriental medicine has a solution for you. 

Relieve Chronic Fatigue with Oriental medicine

Chronic fatigue syndrome is much improved by the fourth week. The total treatment is up to 2 or 3 months. The result is stable thereafter.

Oriental medicine treats chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) as a condition mainly from the imbalance in the body. In other words, the initial infection and/or disease had compromised the normal functioning of your body. When this physiological dysfunction persists for a prolonged period of time, the result is an inability to spring back to its normal state. The outcome is a deep tiredness one cannot just shake off. In addition, the fatigued body can become a precursor to many diseases. Even without a disease, the CFS is debilitating.

The goal of Oriental medicine is to help your body establish homeostasis more efficiently. The outcome is a better functioning of the body like a tune-up. Your mind and body will feel lighter and happier. Patients experience improved sleep, increased vitality, and a short recovery time. 

Symptoms of CFS

CFS is characterized by the main symptom of unremitting and disabling exhaustion. In some cases, the syndrome follows an infectious illness. In others, the symptoms appear during a time of unusual stress, or they may start gradually, with no perceivable cause. The possible connections are:

  • hormone deficiencies
  • allergies
  • improper foods
  • stress
  • depression
  • anxiety
  • reactivation of a dormant virus
  • neurological damage from previous illness

Mononucleosis with the Epstein-Barr virus may be related factors. Many patients develop depression and anxiety after the syndrome has taken hold. CFS and depression are simultaneously treated with Chinese medicine.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has compiled the following list of conditions that must be present to make a diagnosis:

  • debilitating fatigue for at least six months.
  • mild fever
  • sore throat
  • painful lymph nodes
  • generalized muscle weakness
  • muscle aches
  • headache
  • joint pains
  • prolonged fatigue after exercise
  • inability to concentrate
  • altered sleep habits

 


Patient Testimonial

I was fatigued all the time. I was having pregnancy symptoms every month but I was not pregnant. My right foot had pain and I was having headaches, and just feeling out of sorts. The first week of treatment I felt a difference. The treatment has been about two months, and I have no more pain. I’m not fatigued anymore. I feel the best I have felt in very long time. Jeanie Bell
