Fatigue, Malaise, Cognitive dysfunction, Immune dysfunction, unrefreshing sleep and pain are all common symptoms of chronic fatigue and its close counterpart Fibromnyalgia.
Patients with Chronic Fatigue and/or Fibromyalgia require much more time and attention, and our current conventional medical model does not facilitate adequate treatment for the care and demands of a person struggling with these conditions. Our approach will involve a multifactorial investigation looking to correct imbalances and treat the underlying conditions.
Feeling exhausted all the time?
Has your exercise tolerance, mental clarity, and passion for life all gone down and nothing seems to fix them?
Have you ever been diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and told it’s “post-viral fatigue” and there’s nothing you can do?
Do you wake up and have to drag yourself out of bed, or after a short time have to go back to bed to rest?
Do you find your lack of energy is now impacting your work, social life or relationships?
Or has someone said to you that it’s “all in your head”
Our Standard medical tests from chronic fatigue specialist in the UK, unfortunately, fail to identify the problem. In fact, the main challenge in identifying and diagnosing diseases like Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and fibromyalgia is that they’re often accompanied by other chronic conditions with similar symptoms. Unfortunately, often patients are left being bounced around the health system without getting better.
Headaches, including migraines
Impaired memory or concentration
The causes of fatigue are incredibly diverse and are often multifactoral, from sleep issues, toxin exposures, hormonal imbalance, key nutrient deficiencies, gut issues, heavy metal toxicity, autoimmune disease, heart disease, diabetes, viral infections and adrenal gland problems.
We will look to do a comprehensive review to firstly understand the origins of your symptoms, then looks at a bespoke personalised treatment plan that is tailored for long term health. That is what we do in the first appointment with you. As well as mainstream testing we use the latest cutting edge Functional Medicine tests to get to the bottom of your symptoms. We seek the Why behind the Why. Labelling a cluster of symptoms as a “disease” usually tells us little of why a person has the condition or how to reverse it.
Instead of just labelling and treating a symptom, our approach is to go upstream and fix the root cause. For example, you may need a b12 infusion, however, we’d want to get to the bottom of why you were low in b12 in the first place.
Testing procedures may include adrenal gland testing, heavy metal testing, evaluation for fatty liver, liver detoxification capacity evaluation, stool test, viral titers, full hormone evaluation, and an insulin-glucose challenge test.
Based on the tests and results, we prescribe a personalized treatment plan designed to treat not only your symptoms, but also the underlying causes. Our treatments include the following:
✓ Lifestyle and dietary changes
✓ Gastrointestinal healing
✓ Energy nutrients
✓ Natural hormone replacement therapy
✓ Vitamins, minerals, and herbs
✓ Immunological modulation with natural compounds
