Today, Ms.Charmaine D’Souza – Nutrition and Health Consultant will be talking about the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS).
The worries and strains of daily life can be overwhelming and even exhausting. Surprisingly, positive events like an engagement or marriage, moving into a bigger and better home or workplace, going on a trip can also tire us. Understandably, emotional shock from bad news, a failed relationship or the death of a loved one can make us felt drained. However, if you are TATT… or ‘Tired All The Time’ then read on…
Fatigue, meaning tiredness or the feeling of not having enough energy, is a symptom that may result from a great variety of causes and it is probably among the most common symptoms described to physicians and other practitioners. It may range from mild loss of usual energy to greater weariness at certain times of the day, to complete exhaustion and near inability to move.
Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) or chronic fatigue immune dysfunction syndrome (CFIDS), is much less common and a more concerning and harder-to-correct problem. Practitioners and scientists are still working to figure out the cause.
Factors contributing to fatigue:
• Chronic diarrhea and nutrient loss
• Chronic pain
• Depression (and persistent anxiety)
• Environmental toxicity
• Immune suppression
• Lack of sleep (or poor sleep and sleep apnea)
• Low HCL
• Poor digestion
• Progressive disease
• Sluggish liver
• Stress and overwork
• Structural misalignment
• Toxicity from the colon
More specific causes of fatigue and chronic fatigue:
Yeast and mold infections and allergies – Candida albicans.
Viral infections (acute) – colds, flu’s, hepatitis and mononucleosis.
Viral infections (chronic) – HIV, Epstein-barr, cytomegalovirus and herpes.
Parasite infections – many possible such as amoebas or worms.
Bacterial infections – staphylococcus or streptococcus.
Hormonal deficiencies – Hypothyroidism, low adrenal function (often due to chronic stress and sugar abuse), pituitary dysfunction, as well as menopause.
Nutritional deficiencies – Magnesium, potassium, iodine, iron, copper, vitamin B12, folic acid, other B vitamins, vitamin C and vitamin E.
Toxic mineral excesses – lead, aluminium, mercury, nickel and cadmium.
Metabolic disease- such as of the heart, liver or kidneys.
