Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disorder characterized by feelings of debilitation and lack of energy. This condition has a variety of causes.
Researchers have found that a number of viruses are actually involved, including the Epstein-Barr virus, cytomegalovirus, and herpes simplex. Parasites and candida albicans are often found as part of the clinical picture as well. Exhausted adrenal glands and lowered immunity set the stage for this medically incurable viral condition.
Most victims are women, usually between the ages of thirty and fifty. Most often sufferers of chronic fatigue syndrome are A-type personality—overachievers, outgoing, independent, and self-reliant. They often have heightened stress levels and lowered adrenal health. Therefore, the natural remedies for chronic fatigue syndrome focus on building adrenal health, eliminating yeast and parasites, and boosting immune function.
There are three stages to chronic fatigue syndrome. The first stage is recognized by debilitating fatigue. It may begin as merely a craving for more rest and can progress to a need for bed rest for up to six months. The sufferer will have a low-grade fever, sore throat, muscle weakness, gastrointestinal problems, and sore lymph nodes.
The second stage of chronic fatigue syndrome brings more symptoms. Sufferers will develop a ringing in the ears, accompanied by depression, irritability, allergies, vertigo, and sharp muscle aches. The person will be plagued by low blood sugar (hypoglycemia).
The third stage of chronic fatigue syndrome adds night sweats, frequent infections, weight loss, and accompanied loss of appetite, extreme fatigue, fainting, extremely low immunity, heart palpitations, and nervous system disorders.
