Natural Medicine can heal Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

 

Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a highly debilitating condition, characterised by persistent andrelapsing physical and mental fatigue that is not resolved by rest. It is commonly referred to as ME (myalgic encephalomyelitis), neurasthenia, post-viral fatigue syndrome or ‘yuppie flu’.

Present position

  • It is a condition that affects 1% of the world’s population
  • 80% of patients are undiagnosed
  • CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME is 4x more common amongst women than men
  • Affects middle age adults 40-59 years old

Diagnosis

Chronic fatigue is an unexplained and persistant fatigue that :

  • Is not because of ongoing exertion
  • Is not reduced by ample amounts of rest
  • Is lingering for more than 6 months
  • Have resulted in much less activity compared with previous levels of activity

2. Extreme tiredness after physical and mental exertion
3. Wake up tired after a night well slept
4. Experiencing muscle pain frequently
5. Joint pain without swelling or redness
6. Headaches
7. Sore throat

Blood Tests

  • Full blood count
  • Thyroid stimulating hormone
  • Cytomegalo, Epstein Barr, Coxsakie virus
  • VitaminD
  • Testosterone for men
  • Progesterone for women

 

A Diagnostic Dilemma

Chronic fatigue syndrome has non-specific symptoms with a large variation between patients.  These patients have severe fatigue for longer than 6 months.  .  Lyme disease and chronic fatigue have similar symptoms.  All other possibilities must be ruled out before CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME diagnosis is made.

Other Symptoms associated with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

  • Chills and night sweats
  • Allergies or sensitivities to various foods or chemicals
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Bloating
  • Nausea
  • Visual disturbances or eye pain
  • Chest pain
  • And problems such as depression, irritability, anxiety and panic attacks

Possible causes

  • Infections by viruses or bacteria
  • Abnormal response to physical or psychological stressors by the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis
  • Abnormal immune responses or other immune dysfunction
  • Excessive oxidative stress
  • Psychological and emotional issues

The Link to Infection

  • Epstein Barr
  • Coxsakie virus
  • Cytomegalo virus
  • New – Retrovirus, known as XMRV

The hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis

In all  ofthe cases of CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME that I have treated, patients have always come with a history of months of severe psychological or physical stress

Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

  • Fibromyalgia:  muscular pain and tenderness are experienced in the absence of any known medical cause
  • Pain and fatigue frequently occur together, and the syndromes of fibromyalgia and CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME overlap
  • Two variations of the same disease

Prognosis statistically

  • Complete recovery 5%
  • Improvement without full recovery – 40%
  • No success 5-20%
  • If all systems are treated with natural medicine:  I have had a 95% success rate to date

All systems that are affected by the disease should be treated with natural medicine:

  • Immune system
  • Hormonal system
  • Digestive system
  • Emotional system

Multidisciplinary approach is always the best

  • Medicine: homeopathic, herbal, probiotics & nutraceutical
  • Medac , Bemer carpets & Rife treatment
  • Diet – blood group and / or  IGG food intolerance test
  • Energy diary to be completed daily to see progress
  • Muscular rehabilitation – aquarobics
  • Psychologists & Therapists

Summary

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a debilitating disease and when diagnosed and treated early with natural medicine, the patient should heal within 6 months.  It is always better to prevent a disease and when people live balanced lifestyles and accept that less is more, we can prevent most chronic diseases.
