What Is Chronic Fatigue Syndrme (CFS)
What Is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)?
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is a condition in which very modest degrees of physical or mental exertion induce severe fatigue. Increased activity typically causes symptoms to worsen. These exacerbations might not appear for several hours, or even until the next day. Over-doing can cause a flare-up that last for hours or even days.
To diagnose CFS, there must be persistent or relapsing, and debilitating fatigue that persists for 6 months or more. The fatigue must cause a substantial reduction of previous activity and not improve substantially with normal rest.
In addition, the patient must also meet four of these eight minor criteria:
1. Impaired memory or concentration
2. Sore throat
3. Painful/tender nodes especially cervical or auxiliary
4. Muscle pain
5. Multi-joint pain
6. New headaches
7. Unrefreshing sleep
8. Post-exertional malaise (lasting >24 hrs)
Many people with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome also qualify for the diagnosis of Fibromyalgia and vice versa.
.Many Chronic Fatigue Syndrome doctors believe that a functional medicine approach adds value to standard therapies by focusing on the body's natural healing systems and their crucial role in resisting and reversing illness. The unstated assumption is that mind and body function quite separately as if each organ within us acts largely on its own. However, current science tells a very different story.
Mind and body organs and systems act on each other. There is a complex web of hormonal, metabolic and biochemical inter-relations. At a deep level, even such distant organs as the brain, endocrine glands, immune system, gut, and liver coordinate their functions-- almost as if they were one.
Functional Medicine creates added opportunities for healing. This holistic, complementary or alternative approach focuses on ways to strengthen the body’s own natural healing systems. Much research suggests that better function for any one part of the healing web also acts to strengthen other parts of the system.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Root Cause Diagnosis
Many or most cases of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome appear to begin with a viral illness. However, bacterial infections, environmental toxins, and/or emotional distress may also be triggers.
Finding your root cause of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is the key to successful treatment.
There is a totally accurate non-invasive and quick diagnostic procedure which gets right to the root cause of Fibromyalgia…Clinical Kinesiology.
CK is revered for its accuracy. Using a specialized form of muscle testing we can access information held deeply in your physiology and determine what toxins and opportunistic infections may be lurking there, creating your Fibromyalgia syndrome. Once the cause has been found, specific treatment can be implemented.
The Health Transformer Approach
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Treatments
The first step is usually to regain a sense of control by eliminating the toxins which have accumulated in your system, and also remove any secondary infections, thus reducing the disruptive symptoms that often complicate this disease. These include secondary pain, poor sleep, recurring infections, and secondary depression, nutritional deficiencies, thyroid and/or adrenal imbalance. At the same time, work to improve the natural healing systems that we normally rely on to overcome illness. It is of great practical important to identify and remove obstacles to the function of these natural healing systems.
In every case of CFS there is an underlying cause…something individual to each person. If at one time you didn’t have these symptoms and now do, obviously something has changed in your system in order that these symptoms have been produced. CSF is merely a symptom of the underlying cause. To treat CFS effectively and naturally we need to address the cause. In this centre we specialize in root cause diagnosis of any health condition using our state of the art Meta Health Scan.

The Meta Health Scan is carried out utilizing the amazing diagnostic ability of Clinical Kinesiology. It is reliable, accurate and reproducible. The scan will reveal the imbalances unique to your body, and how these are affecting you. The scan reveals such issues as endogenous bio-toxicity, nutrient imbalances or deficiencies, sub-clinical infections, allergies and food sensitivities. We also test for organ imbalances, hormone imbalance, and leaky gut. Any abnormality in these areas will easily be picked up during the Health Scan. We also examine your entire lifestyle, sleep quality and any emotional/psychological contributors to your condition.
In-Depth Consultation regarding your results.
Once this information is gathered we offer you an in-depth consultation to discuss your results, during which we discuss what has been revealed by the scan, where and how this has arisen, and how to remove or transform it, and reboot your system. I believe it is very important for each person to understand what has been going on in their body, how the condition has developed, and how to unravel and resolve it naturally. My intention is not just to teach you about your condition, but more importantly to empower you with understanding in order that you are able to take back control of your health.
