Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or CFS is a chronic condition that causes extreme fatigue that encroaches on your everyday lifestyle and overall wellness. More than simply feeling ‘tired’ or ‘rundown’, CFS is characterised by exhaustion that remains even after extended periods of rest. Other symptoms may accompany fatigue and include:
- Cold and flu like symptoms
- Inability to sleep soundly
- Confusion and/or disorientation
- Joint and/or muscle pain
CFS can be an extremely distressing condition for sufferers, largely due to the lack of knowledge surrounding what causes it and how it can be effectively treated. It is common for sufferers to feel as if they may never escape the feeling of crushing exhaustion plaguing them.
Ayurveda can offer hope to those seeking a way to manage their symptoms and return to a state of wellness. Through consultation with our doctors and the myriad of techniques they use to assess the whole picture of an individuals health and well-being, a new perspective can be gained as to the underlying causes and possible imbalances manifesting as this chronic illness. In the majority of cases, CFS is thought to be caused by a ‘Vata imbalance’ or disparity in one of the body’s specific bio-energies.
Our doctors will work with you to design a tailored wellness program to help return balance to the body and eliminate accumulated toxins that may be ‘weighing down’ your system. This may include:
- Lifestyle modifications
- Prescription of kitchen and medicinal herbal medicines
- Instruction in gentle yoga postures and breathing exercises
- Prescription of Ayurvedic rejuvenating massage and detoxing treatments to rebalance the system
