Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is a disorder that causes a person to feel fatigued both physically and mentally for days, weeks, months, or even years at a time. There are more than 200,000 reported cases of CFS in the United States every year which makes the disorder very common in this country. However, even though the disorder is common, scientists have still not been able to pinpoint what causes it. Because of this, treatment is especially difficult because medical professionals don’t know exactly what to prescribe to someone with the disorder. Nevertheless, people who experience CFS have seen great results through acupuncture therapy. Studies have shown that those who treat their CFS with acupuncture therapy experience less fatigue both physically and mentally. If you are experiencing and or all of the following symptoms as a result of CFS, then acupuncture therapy can help you to see lasting results:
· Severe fatigue that comes on suddenly
· Low grade fever and chills
· Sore throat and swollen lymph glands
· Muscle and joint aches, without any swelling
· Feeling like you are in a fog
· Not being able to concentrate or remember
· Mood changes
If you go to your doctor with these symptoms, then he’ll prescribe you whatever he thinks is causing the disorder but won’t know exactly what will work. In some cases, a doctor will prescribe anti-depressants which come with a lot of unwanted side effects such as nausea, insomnia, blurred vision, and many more. When dealing with CFS you should look for a symptom free treatment that has shown amazing results in many others dealing with the disorder. This is why you should try acupuncture therapy to experience less fatigue as a result of CFS!
