Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is a disorder without a known cause, although CFS may be related to a previous infection. CFS is a state of chronic fatigue that exists without other explanation for 6 months or more and is accompanied by cognitive difficulties (problems with short-term memory or concentration). You may have CFS if you meet the following criteria:

  • If you have severe chronic fatigue for 6 months or longer and all other known conditions that could cause fatigue have been excluded by your health care provider
  • If you simultaneously have 4 or more of the following symptoms: significant problems with short-term memory or concentration, sore throat. tender lymph nodes, muscle pain, joint pain without swelling or redness, headaches that are different in pattern or severity from previous headaches, feeling tired and lethargic even after sleeping, and extreme tiredness lasting more than 24 hours after you exercise or exert yourself

Chronic fatigue syndrome affects tens of thousands of people. It occurs more commonly in females than in males. This condition occurs most commonly in young to middle-aged adults. People with CFS are often unable to perform normally at work and home because of their long-term fatigue and problems with short-term memory. This can lead to depression, but depression is not a cause of CFS.

Homeopathy offers viable long term solutions for patients with CFS. In addition to nutritional support homeopathy will strengthen the immune system and address the fatigue, lethargy and other associated symptoms. In cases of extreme or severe CFS, treatment plans are available to aid with depression and other associated symptoms. More about homoepathy……
