Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is defined as, “A debilitating disorder characterized by extreme fatigue or tiredness that doesn’t go away with rest and can’t be explained by an underlying medical condition.” CFS is also referred to as myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) or systemic exertion intolerance disease (SEID). Little is known about the actual cause of this affliction. Some postulate that it results from a viral infection, a weakened immune system, stress, hormonal imbalances or a combination of these factors.
Because so little is known about chronic fatigue syndrome, it is hard to diagnosis. The main symptoms of CFS include severe fatigue unalleviated by rest, post-exertional malaise (where you feel worse after physical or mental activity), insomnia, loss of memory or concentration, muscle pain, and headaches.
Treatment of CFS focuses on symptom alleviation. Often, doctors will prescribe antidepressants for the mental aspects of the affliction, and pain-killers for the physical portion. However, treating the symptoms instead of the root causes is a losing battle. The effectiveness of medication wanes over time, and symptoms often end up getting worse.
Instead of focusing on the symptoms, focus on the possible causes. One of those possible causes is the buildup of toxins in your body. This occurs as a result of prolonged stress and triggers hormonal imbalances as well as a weakened system — three main contributing factors of CBS.
Treating this toxic buildup can help you overcome Chronic Fatigue Disorder. So, what can you do to rid your body of harmful toxins?
Sweating is a natural detoxification process. The body eliminates built-up toxins through sweat. Engaging in regular cardio can do wonders for your body, not just physically, but chemically. Though it can be difficult to work out when you suffer from CFS, understanding that exercise will help your symptoms in the long-run can be the motivation you need to get started.
Part of the detoxification process is being mindful of what you put in your body to begin with. Cut processed foods from your diet as much as possible. Focus on eating meals that include a balance of fruits, vegetables, carbs, and proteins. If you find it difficult to maintain a balanced diet with your busy lifestyle, supplements are a great option. Supplements can also help speed the metabolic process, ridding your body of toxins faster and improving your energy levels.
3. IV Therapy
IV therapy is the quickest way to simultaneously detoxify and nourish the body. Drips high in glutathione help strengthen your immune system which in turn identifies threats to your health, such as toxins, and gets rid of them. IV therapy also fully rehydrates your body which speeds the detoxification process. This is a quick and effective way to treat the underlying causes of CFS.
If you’re feeling unusually tired and in pain, there’s a chance you are suffering from Chronic Fatigue Disorder, or you could just be stressed out and worn down. Regardless of the underlying cause of your fatigue, IV infusion therapy can help.
