Integrative Medicine and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Functional medicine can help patients suffering with chronic fatigue address root causes of energy dysfunction and metabolic health. Personalized solutions help patients improve chronic fatigue symptoms.
What causes Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or ME?
Although not officially classified as an autoimmune disease, CFS often shares several root causes with autoimmunity such as underlying system inflammation. A leaky gut, inflammatory diet, latent infection, or high toxic burden can contribute to chronic fatigue symptoms as well.
A functional medicine doctor’s primary goal in healing chronic fatigue will be to identify underlying causes of CFS, and patients can benefit from:
- Dietary and supplement therapy
- Testing for Epstein-Barr virus or other infections
- Immune support
- IV Drip Therapy
- Functional stress relief
