ME Fatigue Syndrome

ME (MYALGIC ENCEPHALITIS) / FATIGUE SYNDROME

THIS COLLECTION OF PROBLEMS THAT ALL DEVELOP INTO SIMILAR PATTERN OF GENERAL FATIGUE AND UNSPECIFIC ILLNESS CAN BE LIFE DESTROYING ILLNESSES FOR MANY INDIVIDUALS. SEVERAL FORMS OF HOLISTIC MEDICINE HAVE REMARKABLE SUCCESS WITH THIS GROUP OF PROBLEMS, AS DETAILED BELOW.

ACUPUNCTURE OFTEN OR NOT COMBINED WITH CHINESE HERBS FROM AN EXPERIENCED CHINESE MEDICINE PRACTITIONER WORKS INTRICATELY WITH THE ENERGY BALANCES AND FLOWS OF THE HUMAN BODY, AND IS VERY EFFECTIVE IN RAISING ENERGY LEVELS WHILST CREATING BETTER GENERAL HEALTH LEVELS AND STRENGTHENING THE IMMUNE, GROWTH AND REPAIR SYSTEMS.

HERBAL MEDICINE USES NATUROPATHIC BOTANICAL COMPOUNDS, THAT ARE OFTEN MIMICKED BY THE PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY, TO INDUCE NATURAL HEALING AND REPAIR OF THE PATIENTS’ DISEASED ORGAN OR SYSTEM. NATURAL BOTANICAL HERBS CAN RAISE THE ENERGY LEVELS, BOOST THE IMMUNE SYSTEM, PROVIDE VITAL MISSING MICRO-NUTRIENTS WITHOUT WHICH THE PATIENTS SYSTEMS COULD BE MALFUNCTIONING, AND ERADICATE DIFFICULT INFECTIONS THAT ANTI-BIOTIC OR VIRAL DRUGS MAY HAVE FAILED TO CLEAR.

ALLERGY TESTING CAN IDENTIFY FACTORS THAT MAY BE WORSENING ILLNESSES AND DISEASE, OFTEN GREATLY REDUCING THE SYMPTOMS AND DISEASE PROGRESS BY THE SUBSEQUENT ELIMINATION OF THE OFFENDING ALLERGENS.

HOMEOPATHY USES ‘LIKE FOR LIKE’ DILUTIONS OF REMEDIES THAT STIMULATE THE BODY TO HEAL ITSELF, AND RELIES UPON THE INDIVIDUAL DIAGNOSIS SKILL OF THE PRACTITIONER FOR EVERY CASE. GENERAL HEALTH IS RAISED BY STRENGTHENING THE HEALTH AND VITALITY OF THE PATIENTS’ BODY ENERGIES.

OUTSIDE THE MAIN SPINAL CORD IS A NERVOUS SYSTEM CALLED THE AUTONOMIC NERVOUS SYSTEM THAT CONTROLS ALL OUR INVOLUNTARY ACTIONS: FROM THE DIRECTION OF BLOOD SUPPLY TO THE INTESTINES AT MEALTIMES OR TO THE BRAIN WHEN THINKING, TO CONTROLLING OUR POSTURAL MUSCLES SO WE CAN STAND UP IN GRAVITY, AND A THOUSAND-AND-ONE RESPONSES WE HAVE LEARNT IN OUR EVOLUTION TO MAKE IN CERTAIN CONDITIONS WITHOUT CONSCIOUS THOUGHT.

THIS AUTONOMIC NERVOUS SYSTEM CAN BE SUBJECT TO MECHANICAL INTERFERENCE (IN THE SAME FASHION AS MOTOR OR SENSORY NERVES CAN PRODUCE SUCH CONDITIONS AS SCIATICA), BUT THIS INTERFERENCE WILL PRODUCE AN ARRAY OF METABOLIC SYMPTOMS (AS OPPOSED TO PAIN OR WEAKNESS WHEN A MOTOR-SENSORY NERVE IS INTERFERED WITH) ANYWHERE IN THE BODY, AND CAN ALTER NORMAL FUNCTIONING OF ANY ORGAN SUCH AS THE HEART, LUNGS, KIDNEYS AND SO ON; OR WHOLE SYSTEMS SUCH AS THE LYMPH DRAINAGE, THE HORMONAL-ENDOCRINE SYSTEM, ETC. THE RESULT IF OFTEN AN INITIALLY UNDRAMATIC BUT SLOW ONSET OF SYMPTOMS AND GRADUAL SLIDE INTO GENERAL UNSPECIFIC UN-DIAGNOSED ILLNESS THAT WILL OFTEN EVADE TESTS, OR PRODUCE RESULTS UPON INVESTIGATION THAT DO NOT REVEAL THE CAUSE OF THE PROBLEM.

A GOOD SPECIFIC EXAMPLE OF THIS IS THE ‘ME’ FATIGUE TYPE CONDITION. IN THIS ILLNESS PARTICULAR AREAS OF THE SPINE DEVELOP OF ME OR FATIGUE SYNDROME.

MYALGIC ENCEPHALITIS SUGGESTS VIRAL INFECTION OF THE BRAIN BUT NEITHER ANY INFECTIOUS NOR CEPHALIC CONNECTION HAS BEEN FOUND WITH THIS ILLNESS. ‘CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME’ BETTER DESCRIBES THE NATURE OF THE SYMPTOMS, WHICH CAN BE RELIEVED GREATLY BY TREATMENT TO THE AREAS OF THE SPINE THAT ARE CAUSING THE ILLNESS.

SIMPLE APPLICATION OF SOUND TECHNIQUES CAN GENTLY EASE THE INTERFERENCE ON THE AUTONOMIC NERVOUS SYSTEM AND HENCE THE FATIGUE SYNDROME ILLNESS ITSELF. ALONG WITH THE TECHNIQUES THERE ARE OTHER AREAS A PRACTITIONER CAN ADVISE IN. THERE ARE CERTAIN VITAMIN-MINERAL-TRACE ELEMENT AND BOTANICAL HERBS THAT HAVE GENUINE RESEARCH SHOWING REAL BENEFIT FOR SUCH CONDITIONS AS FATIGUE SYNDROME. ALSO, THE CORRECT LEVEL AND TYPE OF ACTIVITY-EXERCISE IS IMPORTANT WHICH IS VARIABLE DEPENDING ON THE INDIVIDUAL, AS IS AN UNDERSTANDING OF THE DESTRUCTIVE TYPES OF STRESS AND THE MANAGEMENT OF THESE. DIETARY CHANGES AND SIMPLE SELF HELP TECHNIQUES CAN ALL BE PRESCRIBED BY A PRACTITIONER TO HELP SPEED THE RECOVERY BEING BROUGHT ABOUT BY THE TREATMENT.
