If you’re suffering from persistent and intense fatigue that makes it hard for you to complete daily tasks, you may have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS).
Women account for 70% of cases of CFS and it’s a tricky one to get a diagnosis for. Even then many sufferers don’t feel they get sufficient answers or support.
We can help.
At Body Institute, your initial treatment plan for CFS will include minor diet changes to support healthy, balanced energy production. You’ll also be guided towards supplementation of essential vitamins and minerals to support mitochondrial energy production, enhance immune function and stimulate normal detoxification of heavy metals.
At Body Institute, we treat CFS in progression so as not to cause a relapse or place additional stress or cause further exhaustion.
As you progress in your treatment we will increase exercise, increase dietary changes and may even put you through a detox program to ensure all toxins, including heavy metals are removed from the body. Additional testing such as hair mineral analysis may be required for those suffering CFS.
It’s also worth noting that Chronic Fatigue Syndrome may be preceded by or associated with:
- Acute viral illness
- Chronic health problems
- Emotional factors (anxiety, depression)
- Micronutrient deficiencies
- Environmental pollutants and contaminants
- General poor health and compromised immunity
Our team of Naturopaths will work with you to determine the cause of your fatigue, ensuring that you achieve your energy, vitality and overall wellness goals.
