Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Acupuncture

Chronic Fatigue Acupunture

Think CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) is just about feeling tired? The truth is those affected with CFS can get so run down that it interferes with the ability to function in every day life. Worse case scenario entails being severely disabled to the point of being bedridden. Typical characteristics are extreme mental and physical fatigue that unfortunately does not get better with rest. Common symptoms are headaches, flu like body aches and for some even chronic body pain.

Research shows women are twice as likely as men to be diagnosed with CFS. Most patients with CFS are generally between the ages of 25 and 45 years old, although there have been cases in childhood.

Alternative Help for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chinese medicine is based on the belief that blockages of "Qi" (energy) in the body is responsible for illness and disease. By inserting hair-thin acupuncture needles into specific points just under the skin blockages of energy can be removed from the body. By removing the blockages the natural flow of Qi (energy) can be restored and the body can then find balance again.

If you are suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Chinese Medicine can be a great way to help relieve symptoms and increase stamina and well-being in the body.
