Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Chronic fatigue syndrome is a complex disorder that has been diagnosed in millions of people around the world. However, it is considered to be only the tip of the iceberg, because a large number of people live with problems related to this syndrome but do not have an adequate diagnosis.
Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is characterized with a feeling of deep fatigue, which does not improve after sleep, and which may be exacerbated by physical or mental activity. The fatigue lasts more than six months.
People with CFS commonly report nonspecific symptoms such as:
- muscle pain,
- memory loss,
- loss of concentration and attention,
- insomnia and persistent fatigue that is not alleviated even after a long sleep,
- a decline in work performance (which additionally creates problems regarding the realization of work tasks),
- frequent mood swings,
- salty food cravings,
- lack of energy that a person tries to compensate by consuming large quantities of coffee or by taking other brain stimulants,
- superficial and (often) intermittent sleep, sometimes accompanied by intense sweating,
- feeling tired after waking up,
- lack of sexual desire and power,
- weight gain in a very short period,
- overreaction during a stressful situation that is not so intense,
- occurrence of frequent infections and long recovery from illness,
- frequent asthma and allergies, low blood pressure and dizziness after getting up from a sitting position…
The classic approach to this syndrome treatment is usually oriented towards symptom reduction by using various medicines (eg, to treat insomnia, antidepressants, anxiolytics, analgesics, thyroid medicines, etc.). However, the problem will not be solved because the causative factor of this medical condition has not been eliminated - and that is adrenal exhaustion.
The adrenal glands are among the most important organs in our body. These nut-size glands are located on the top of each kidney and are important control centers for many functions in the body. One of the most important functions of these glands is the preparation of the body's response to stress. The inner part of an adrenal gland is called the medulla. It secretes the hormones epinephrine and norepinephrine. These hormones prepare the body to „fight or flight response“ in a stressful situation. The outer part of these glands produces nearly 30 steroid hormones, most notably cortisol, aldosterone, estrogen, testosterone, and DHEA. When healthy, the adrenal glands can respond immediately to stress by boosting the heart rate, increasing blood pressure, releasing energy stores in the muscles, slowing digestion, sharpening the senses...
Since our body has not been under constant stress during evolution, our adrenal glands have not been created to work continuously. However, the contemporary pace of life dictates the prolonged and frequent stressful situations and activation of these glands. In addition, their function may also be adversely affected by poor nutrition, exposure to numerous poisons of different origins, complete absence of or insufficient physical activity, etc.
By the use of a personalized holistic approach through The HEALTH FORMULA protocol you will feel significant improvement in general health and will alleviate or eliminate most of the aforementioned problems. This will also be proved and confirmed through the questionnaires that you will complete at the beginning of the treatment and during the first check-up (2 to 3 weeks after the beginning of the protocol). Within two to three months after the application of The HEALTH FORMULA protocol, all of the described problems that characterize the chronic fatigue syndrome will disappear!
