Chronic Fatigue

Naturopathic Chronic Fatigue Treatment

Many people suffer from chronic fatigue and just don’t know it. Feeling exhausted is a common occurrence in the modern society we live in, so it often gets overlooked; however, chronic fatigue syndrome is a serious ailment that can really begin to negatively affect your quality of life as it progresses. It is hard to classify chronic fatigue syndrome, but technically it is any prolonged and extreme fatigue that can’t be attributed to some other disorder or illness. The exhaustion amplifies when you exercise, but there is no improvement when you rest.

The exact cause of chronic fatigue is unknown, but it is thought to be caused by a combination of factors, such as high levels of stress, viral infections and/or a hormone imbalance. The main symptom of chronic fatigue is, you guessed it, fatigue. However, there are several other symptoms associated with the syndrome. People with chronic fatigue have reported experiencing a loss of focus and memory, a sore throat, swollen lymph nodes, profound and prolonged exhaustion after exercise, headaches, muscle cramps and unfulfilling sleep. Chronic fatigue affects people of all ages, but is more common amongst people in their 40’s and 50’s.
