Chronic Fatigue Treatment
Holistic Approach to Chronic Fatigue in NYC
WHAT IS CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME?
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome frequently co-occurs with fibromyalgia, but it
can exist alone. The symptoms of the two disorders frequently overlap,
and can be extremely varied. They include:
- Debilitating fatigue
- Lack of concentration
- Sore throat
- Swollen or painful lymph nodes
- Unrefreshing sleep
GETTING ENOUGH SLEEP
Sleeping properly is the most crucial element of managing both Chronic
Fatigue Syndrome and fibromyalgia. If you don’t establish a regular
rhythm of sleeping at night and being awake during the day, recovery will
be more difficult. Physiologically, humans need to align themselves with
the 24-hour cycle in order to thrive.
If your circadian rhythm is thrown off, for whatever reason, your biochemistry
begins to malfunction. You may not get the cortisol “surge”
that most people experience first thing in the morning. Cortisol is crucial
for maintaining energy, and also has anti-inflammatory properties, so
its production is key for managing Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and fibromyalgia.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Treatment
Our treatment of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome focuses on Sleep, Diet and Nutrition,
Hormone imbalance including Thyroid, and Infections. Unique therapeutic
treatments include intravenous Vitamin and Mineral infusions as well as
combination of immune enhancing and anti-inflammatory injections to achieve
the best results.
There are supplements that support the energy cycle of cellular mitochondria.
The mitochondria are the batteries of the cells, which produce energy.
Mitochondrial dysfunction can result in profound fatigue. Treating mitochondrial
dysfunction with oral, injectable and intravenous supplements can dramatically
improve your energy level.
Hormonal imbalances are also frequently implicated in the symptoms of Chronic
Fatigue Syndrome. It is important to assess production of DHEA, estrogen,
progesterone and testosterone. Treating hormonal deficiencies is essential
in treating Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. For more about hormonal imbalances
