Chronic fatigue is an illness occurring when you have debilitating ongoing fatigue and a variety of other intrusive symptoms. With chronic fatigue, rest doesn’t make you feel better. Chronic fatigue is a chronic illness requiring situation-specific treatment.
As many as 2.5 million Americans have chronic fatigue syndrome, but only 10% of people with the condition have been diagnosed.
All people with chronic fatigue syndrome have symptoms in two categories.
With chronic fatigue, tiredness is persistent, severe, and unrelieved with rest. The tiredness lasts longer than six months.
Chronic fatigue syndrome features symptoms such as memory issues, poor concentration, sore throat, muscle pain, tender lymph nodes, recurrent headaches, post-exertional malaise (increased tiredness after physical or mental activities), and polyarthralgia (pain in multiple joints).
People with chronic fatigue are also more likely to experience digestive health disorders, autoimmune diseases, depression, and anxiety.
At Natural Health Specialists, Dr. Fischer takes a holistic approach to health and wellness. He recommends testing to identify the root causes of your chronic fatigue. Common factors include nutritional deficiencies, food sensitivities, hormone imbalance, and heavy metal toxicity.
Dr. Fischer takes the time to ask about all aspects of your life so he can fully understand all your environmental influences and design the ideal plan to correct the root causes of your chronic fatigue.
Treatments include natural drug-free approaches like nutrition counseling to help you eliminate inflammatory foods. Additionally, many patients with chronic fatigue get excellent results with research-based targeted nutritional therapies and custom herbal formulations.
Dr. Fischer commonly recommends lifestyle changes like setting a sleep schedule and incorporating stress management practices into your regular routine as well.
