At least 1 million people in the United States have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and tens of millions more have a CFS-like condition, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
Chronic fatigue syndrome, or CFS, is one of the most common health complaints in America. Fatigue robs millions of people of the ability to enjoy work and live life to the fullest. For many people, fatigue has done more to destroy their quality of life than any other condition. The cause of CFS is not yet known. Current research is exploring the possibility that people with CFS may have a dysfunction of the immune and central nervous systems.
CFS is a debilitating and complex disorder, which involves a number of different symptoms and unidentified causes for which there are no specific diagnostic tests. Currently, conventional medicine has no successful treatment for the syndrome as a whole.
CFS usually strikes people between the ages of 20 and 40, but it also occurs in teens. A CFS-like illness also has been determined to occur in kids younger than 12. The actual number of children and teens affected by CFS is unknown.
What Acupuncture Can Do For Your Chronic Fatigue
Fortunately, acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, effectively treat the various symptoms associated with chronic fatigue. Chinese medicine can explain the cause of each specific symptom and individual personal imbalance. Acupuncture and herbal medicine will treat the underlying root cause of your conditions and prevent severe diseases.
From the perspective of Chinese medicine, chronic fatigue is considered a Qi deficiency. Qi is the life force energy of the body and mind, and gives us a measure of the vitality of a person. The level and quality of a person’s Qi depends on their physical, mental and emotional wellbeing or balance.
Acupuncture works as a complement to Chinese medicine. It is, in itself, an energy medicine, acting on the body’s own subtle energy system to clear obstructions and maximize the flow of energy and blood through the healing mechanisms of the body; including the nervous, endocrine and immune systems. Thus, Acupuncture enhances the body’s own innate healing capacity and leads to an overall increase in energy and vitality.
