Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: Symptoms and Treatment

Access the Healing You Need to Live a Full, Active Life

Chronic fatigue is a debilitating syndrome that is often misdiagnosed and can lead to feelings of being overwhelmed and unable to cope. At Alternative Medical Care Of Arizona, we believe that, with proper diagnosis and treatment, you can go on to lead a full, active life free from the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome. The syndrome affects as many as one million people across the US, and is characterized by extreme fatigue that lasts upwards of six months. Sufferers do not get better with rest and in most cases are not able to continue with normal daily activities. Other symptoms include difficulty concentrating and remembering, headaches, muscle and joint pain, as well as a sore throat and tender lymph nodes. The fatigue tends to be especially noticeable after exertion.

Examining the Underlying Causes of Chronic Fatigue

We seek to examine and address the underlying causes of chronic fatigue syndrome, rather than focusing on the superficial treatment of the symptoms. In many cases, there is no single cause, but rather a combination of issues that lead to chronic fatigue syndrome. By taking a holistic approach that looks at diet, supplements, the elimination of toxins and infections, as well as mental health and wellbeing; it is possible to bring the body back into balance so that you can experience complete healing. There are several factors that contribute to the syndrome including:

Poor Nutrition

The Standard American Diet is high in sugar and trans fats that poison the body. It is also not sufficiently nutrient-dense, so your body isn’t able to synthesize the compounds that it needs to function optimally. Additionally, consuming soft drinks that contain aspartame can put you at further risk as aspartame poisoning which leads to headaches, depression, and chronic fatigue, among other issues.

Environmental Factors

Exposure to pesticides results in a number of health concerns, such as joint pain and muscle weakness that are linked to chronic fatigue. Pesticides, along with raised stress levels, allow the chemicals to access the brain resulting in CFS.

Yeast Infections (Candida)

Research points to yeast infections being a contributor to chronic fatigue syndrome with women who had recurrent vaginal yeast infections, multiple courses of antibiotics and diets high in sugar and alcohol being more susceptible to chronic fatigue as a result of a weakened immune system.

Adrenal Fatigue

Adrenal fatigue affects as much as 80% of the world’s industrialized population ensuring that we are stuck in a state of constant ‘fight or flight’. This leads to higher levels of hormones being secreted such as cortisol and adrenaline and contributes to a CFS diagnosis.

Our holistic approach takes all of these factors as well as several others into account when developing your chronic fatigue treatment plan.
