Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

what is chronic fatigue syndrome and what is the treatment for it?

Many have heard the term “Chronic Fatigue Syndrome” used to describe bouts of tiredness, general malaise, and even mild depression. It’s a disorder that’s quite misunderstood.

By definition, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is characterized by a severe, disabling fatigue lasting for more than six months. Symptoms typically include physical and mental disturbances including headache, joint or muscle pain, difficulty with concentration and memory, sleep disruption, sore throat, and tender lymph nodes. Patients describe it as having exhaustion so severe that they find it difficult to concentrate, making it very challenging to work or study.

The cause behind this disorder is still undetermined. It is estimated that up to 1 million Americans are affected, and possibly as much as 2.6 percent of the global population. Even though it’s extraordinarily hard to diagnose, and there’s no real way to test for it, CFS is still a very real disease, and hugely debilitating for those who experience it.

SOLUTIONS AND THERAPIES

Many experts theorize that the symptoms of CFS may be due to heavy metal toxicity, nutrient deficiencies, and immune disorders. In these cases, replacing the vital vitamins and nutrients the body lacks, as well as removing harmful substances, can help the body reestablish homeostasis and support immune function.

Typically an assessment starts by determining the person’s nutrient deficiencies, then administering an array of toxicity tests to find what may be causing harm to the body. IV therapy is a very effective tool. It has the ability to reintroduce nutrients, and to be particularly effective in treating cases involving heavy metal toxicity. The chelating agents in some IV therapies may help assist the body in the natural removal of toxic metals and other harmful substances.

Intravenous therapies can also be combined with techniques like ultraviolet blood irradiation (UBI) and ozone therapy to assist in fighting the disease. UBI uses ultraviolet energy to sanitize the blood which kills harmful microbes and toxins; it acts as a natural antibiotic. Ozone therapy outs additional oxygen in the bloodstream, promoting further detoxification and healing.
