CONDITIONS WE CAN HELP WITH...
Chronic Fatigue SyndromeThis disorder, also referred to as myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) and post-viral fatigue syndrome, often arises after a flu-like illness, describes a condition generally defined by constant fatigue that occurs without over-exertion and is not relieved by rest. As well as chronic, severe mental and physical exhaustion symptoms may include: muscle and joint pain, cognitive difficulties, depression, poor immune function and cardiac and respiratory problems which will occur in a previously healthy and active individual.
Chronic fatigue syndrome often arises after the presence of one of a number of viruses. The virus will have worked its way into the system while evading the immune system and will then slowly replicate causing the host to suffer from great pain and debilitating symptoms. Other common causes of chronic fatigue syndrome are:
• A lack of nutrients, especially those required for energy production
• Abnormal amino acid metabolism
• The body’s ability to detoxify being overloaded and unable to cope - leaving the body with a large toxic overload
• A reduction in cellular oxygen uptake - leaving cells unable to make energy
