Fatigue is a symptom of many diseases - including anemia, diabetes, hepatitis, hypoglycemia and thyroid disease - and can be determined by blood tests and diagnosed by your doctor. Common non disease factors often come from a lack of lifestyle balance, which includes diet, exercise, work and social life. A balanced diet provides the digestive enzymes the body requires for processing nutrients and converting food into energy.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome:
Recently, there has been a renewed interest in people who suffer chronically from fatigue, weak-ness, decreased ability to concentrate, and poor memory. In some of these cases, tests for the Epstein-Barr virus have been positive, leading some physicians to diagnose chronic infectious mononucleosis, but this has since been disproved.
Several things can produce fatigue, weakness, and loss of mem-ory, including stress, an unidentified disease, or a psychological condition such as depression. Experts have developed the term chronic fatigue syndrome to designate this vague group of symptoms. (A syndrome is simply a constellation of symp-toms.) No definite cause for the chronic fatigue syndrome has been found, although emotional and psychological factors may play a role.

Acupuncture for chronic fatigue: TREATING QI DEFICIENCY

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, chronic fatigue syndrome is attributed to a deficiency of qi, which is the life force of the mind and body within everyone. This force can be weakened if a person’s mental and physical balance is off—frequently leading to chronic fatigue.

Treating chronic fatigue syndrome involves determining the level of qi in various meridians of a persons’ body. With chronic fatigue, the deficiency is usually in the spleen or kidney meridians, but it can also be in the lung or liver meridians.

Acupuncture for chronic fatigue works to increase a person’s vitality by clearing obstructions to energy flow and building the spleen and kidney qi. This process enhances the body’s natural healing capability. Considering limited efficacy of the Western treatment approaches for chronic fatigue, sufferers should not hesitate to explore the benefits of acupuncture for chronic fatigue.
