Chronic fatigue syndrome
Chronic fatigue syndrome is a condition of prolonged and severe tiredness or weariness that is not relieved by rest and is not directly caused by other conditions. The underlying cause is not known, although some research indicates it may be viral in nature. It is most commonly seen in women aged 30 to 50 years.
Treatment Plan for Chronic fatigue syndrome
An herbal program for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome includes bitter tonics to improve digestive efficiency, and herbal digestive enzymes to remove stagnation. Blood tonifying foods and herbs act as catalysts to help increase the absorption of minerals. Deep immune tonics help to strengthen the bone-marrow reserve and replenish immune reserves. Adaptogens strengthen adrenal glands and counteract stress. Opportunistic viral infections can be inhibited with antiviral herb, but always in combination with immune and adrenal strengthening herbs. Herbs are also used to relax the nervous system, calm a restless spirit, improve sleep, counteract anxiety, and slow thoughts. Herbal tonics should be taken for at least a month to 3 months, and often up to a year or more, depending on the health of the individual and state of deficiency.
