Also known as Post Viral Fatigue, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Glandular fever, ME (myalgic encephalomyelitis) is a debilitating condition that is characterized by excessive, long-lasting fatigue.
Conventional medicine is unsure of what causes ME; as such, treatments are elusive and typically focus on symptoms.
At The Centre For Integrated Health, we deal with many patients who suffer from ME. We find it tends to target high achievers, those with high toxicity levels, and those with poor lymphatic systems.
Most ME sufferers are sub-clinically hypothyroid (under active thyroid), have low levels of HCL (stomach acid) and pancreatic enzymes, and consequently, low levels of vitamins. Candida and parasites can also be present.
There has usually been a trigger point such as fever, food poisoning or trauma. Left untreated the symptoms can last for years. The earlier the symptoms are treated, the better the results.
We use screening technology to check for the root cause of the ME condition. For example, the case may stem from a food poison or a viral/bacterial infection that has not cleared. We also focus on the metabolism and any nutritional deficiencies.
Mrs. “K” had an extreme case of ME. For 20 years, she had been severely under weight, suffered from constant dizziness, and had not menstruated. She had been prescribed medicines for the symptoms she had been experiencing, but not only did they have no positive effect on the symptoms, but they caused some other symptoms.
Having come to The Centre For Integrated Health, Mrs. “K” received a full scan from one of our practitioners. A number of issues were highlighted; including the indication that she was hypersensative to some of the medical treatments that she had been receiving.
An holistic and comprehensive course of treatment was devised for Mrs. “K”, including supplementation, herbal remedies, homeopathy, and EFT sessions. By the time she came for a follow-up appointment, her condition was still severe. Some of the remedies she had been prescribed were tweaked; and our practitioner decided that the treatments would be complimented by sending Mrs. “K” to a service offered by outside practitioner. She was sent to be Zero Balanced.
As a result of these steps and this holistic course of treatment, Mrs. “K” was soon able to come off her anti-depressants. Her menstruation started again, her dizziness disappeared, she gained weight appropriately; and she was shocked at the levels of energy she was experiencing.
ME is a serious problem that can be left ignored for years because conventional medicine simply can’t grasp the root causes. However, we’ve experienced positive results with many former ME-sufferers.
