Chronic Fatigue Treatment — The Back and Neck Relief Center of Manhattan
Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) refers to severe, continued tiredness that is not relieved by rest and is not directly caused by other medical conditions. Age, previous illness, stress, genetics, and environmental factors play a role in the cause. Cellular toxicity is the current leading theory in the development of this condition. There is very little medical relief present in the form of medications or treatments. Symptoms of CFS are similar to those of the flu and other common viral infections, and include muscle aches, headache, and extreme fatigue. However, symptoms of CFS last for 6 months or more. The main symptom is extreme tiredness that is new, lasted 6 months or more, not relieved by bed rest, and severe enough to keep you from participating in certain activities.
People dealing with chronic fatigue syndrome often have an underlying hormonal issue. Yet the issue is not an imbalance in the quantity or quality of the hormones, yet the ability for the hormones to do their job effectively because the body may be so toxic that the hormones cannot interact with the cells as needed.
When cell membranes in the body are damaged due to toxicity (the foods we eat, the chemicals we are exposed to, our environment, and possible heavy metal poisoning) our hormones cannot interact with them in the proverbial “lock and key” mechanism. This causes the body to be in an internal, systemic state of dysfunction. One of the main symptoms may be CFS, dependent on the individual. Chiropractic adjustments to decrease nervous system tension, proper dietary shifts, and proprietary cellular detoxification supplements are all immediate recommendations for a person dealing with CFS.
