Acupuncture and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

The incidence of chronic fatigue syndrome is increasing. Chronic fatigue syndrome or CFS is when an individual feels extremely tired and does not have the energy to perform even half of their daily routine. Women are more likely to suffer from this condition than men and for some it lasts for only a few weeks while for others it may go on for several years. The major symptoms of Chronic fatigue syndrome are extreme fatigue which becomes obvious after the flu, mild fever accompanied by chills, sore throat, and pain in the  joints, headaches, inability to concentrate and frequent mood changes. Individuals suffering from CFS often complain that they do not feel refreshed even after sleeping.

There is only vague knowledge available about the causes of Chronic fatigue syndrome and it is believed it is either due to a virus or immune system reaction that causes this condition. Extreme stress has also been related to the onset of CFS. Depression is likely to enhance the intensity of the fatigue and poor dietary routine is also a strong cause of Chronic fatigue syndrome.

There are several treatment options available for Chronic fatigue syndrome; however, the most effective of all of them is acupuncture and Chinese herbal formulas. There have been several studies that have been conducted in China and they all indicate that acupuncture is a very useful treatment method for treating CFS. Western studies have also confirmed that acupuncture can help to heal additional health problems such as depressions, fibromyalgia, headache and also irritable bowel syndrome. There are also certain studies that confirm that acupuncture can aid in enhancing the immune system of our body. People who turn to acupuncture for the relief from Chronic fatigue syndrome confirm that they are able to have a restful sleep after the treatment and this helps a lot for these individuals and makes them feel better in general. Individualized assessment is a key point in acupuncture and we start with an in depth diagnosis of you through which we can understand the deficiencies as well as the excess of Qi along the different channels in the body. For Chronic fatigue syndrome, the deficiency in Qi is generally located in the channels of the kidneys and the spleen and sometimes, Qi deficiency can also found in the lung channels as well.

In Traditional Chinese medicine the method of treatment for Chronic fatigue syndrome involves the use of moxibustion. In moxibustion, the use of the herb called mugwort is burnt at the particular acupuncture points on the body. The use of moxibustion in acupuncture has a special meaning as it helps in offering a deeper treatment to the body that is very mild and warming. Taking care of your diet is a must in order to treat Chronic fatigue syndrome. Take care to avoid things like caffeine, alcohol, refined foods, sugar and saturated fats. The healthy option will be to choose to eat foods like vegetables, fruits, legumes, proteins, whole grains and essential fatty acids which are the best option for our body as they offer energy as well as the right nutrition.
