Who We Help

Fatigue

Chronic Fatigue syndrome is on the rise in the US in recent years. Experts believe that it affects about 1 million Americans today and women are 2-4 times more likely to suffer with it.  Chronic fatigue can have an impact on memory and concentration. It is known to cause muscle pain, a feeling of heaviness, headaches, anxiety, depression, restlessness, and weakened immune system and a basic inability to live life to its fullest.

The exact cause of chronic fatigue is unknown.  Research has shown that people with chronic fatigue tend to have abnormalities in the brain relating to the HPA axis.

It has also been found that most are stuck in the stress response: the sympathetic nervous system. There is growing evidence that many people have cellular defects that affects the ability of cells to make energy. There are many theories as to the cause of chronic fatigue but until this is known the treatment options are limited in western medicine. The main focus is typically placed on adjusting immune dysfunction, regulating the Hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis. 

At The Medicine Tree, we combine the art and science of eastern medicine to get to the root of the issue.

 

Here at The Medicine Tree, we know that when treating those with fatigue we cannot have a "one size fits all" approach. It is important to use differential diagnosis and lay out a treatment plan that encompasses every aspect of health.  Fatigue can be due to a variety of issues such as nutrient absorption issues, inflammation or stress. Oftentimes, the body is either stagnated and not flowing well, or digestion is not functioning. Combining Acupuncture, customized herbal formulas and a comprehensive nutritional plan that targets the imbalance at the root has our patients feeling a change in their energy and back to their selves in no time.
