(NaturalHealth365) Often when conventional medical providers hear the symptoms, “always tired, in pain, headaches, weak immune system,” they file it under the chronic fatigue syndrome diagnosis. When I hear those symptoms, I want to query the patient more. I want to know about your relationships, your emotional life, dental health, adrenal wellness, and whether you live in a polluted urban area?
Chronic fatigue is a very controversial yet severe health concern characterized by profound fatigue. Sadly, many symptoms that follow are chalked up to “unknown causes” by the status quo healthcare system, and drug therapy often ensues. However, from an integrative environmental perspective, those seemingly ‘mysterious’ symptoms are what lead me to ask about more elusive, lesser-known causes of chronic fatigue syndrome.
