Fatigue of the Chronic Kind! Acupuncture Relieves Chronic Fatigue Syndrome


Acupuncture Relieves Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

There is no longer a reason to suffer needlessly from Chronic Fatigue, and instead feel relaxed, energized and feel less pain. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (also referred to as CFS) is the medical name for a series of disorders that is characterized by a persistent feeling of fatigue that is not caused by lack of sleep or by excessive physical activity, as well as a wide range of accompanying symptoms, some very uncomfortable.

Because CFS is a multi-faceted disease, it often takes several visits to medical professionals to finally diagnose. CFS can affect people of any age. However, it’s most common between the ages of 25 and 45.  Besides being difficult to diagnose, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome can last for years, and there is no known cure. There is a virus that has been associated with chronic fatigue, the Epstein Barr virus (best known as the cause of infectious mononucleosis).

After a prolonged illness, fatigue can be a lingering symptom. When the body fluids have a lower ph than 6.8, as measured in the saliva or urine, fatigue, tiredness, headaches, insomnia, pain, and tension may be the resulting signs.  But there is no need to suffer all of these symptoms. Acupuncture is very helpful in the treatment of the symptoms as well as in the underlying causes of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

A thorough history, and an individual approach in the choice of point sites will usually give immediate positive results. Spleen and Kidney energetic systems are considered, as well as abdomen and upper back point sites, as chronic fatigue syndrome involves kidney-adrenal exhaustion, spleen-stomach digestion deficiency, liver stagnation and blockage — over taxation of one’s vital energy resources.

Acupuncture works to resolve those issues, and corrects any imbalances. Acupuncture analysis includes a peek at the tongue, as well as checking the pulses. Improving the diet is always a good idea, including organic foods supplemented with digestive enzymes and many patients find that a gluten-free, low inflammatory diet assists as well. Meditation and gentle exercise is also helpful, but patients feel a more immediate, energy-boosting change with acupuncture. Among the most noticeable benefits of acupuncture for CFS include:

  • Less pain
  • Better sleep
  • Relaxation
  • Enhanced immune system
  • Better overall health
