Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Several studies by the Centers for Disease Control and others have shown that between one and four million Americans suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). The severity of CFS can vary greatly from person to person; some patients are able to maintain fairly normal and fulfilling lives, whereas others struggle greatly with family, work, and social activities on a day-to-day basis. CFS often follows a cyclical pattern, alternating between stages of debilitating symptoms and feelings of normalcy. This pattern can make CFS difficult to diagnose and manage for both the patient and healthcare practitioner.

It has been observed that chronic inflammation can play a role in CFS. Inflammation associated with conditions such as chronic infection, metal sensitivities, food sensitivities, and Lyme disease can affect mood and energy by altering brain and hormone chemistries. Inflammatory root causes should be evaluated as part of the diagnosis/treatment process.

A New Scientific Approach to Chronic Fatigue

There are several immunological, neurological, and hormonal therapies currently being prescribed for CFS. Assessment of immune markers, neurotransmitters, and hormones can allow your healthcare practitioner to determine the root cause of CFS symptoms as well as guide treatment.

Symptoms

  • Cognitive issues, including impaired memory or concentration
  • Feelings of malaise lasting more than 24 hours (exhaustion and increased symptoms)
  • Unrefreshing sleep
  • Joint pain (without redness or swelling)

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I have been seeing Dr. Jon for 11 years. When I began seeing him, my spine curved in the opposite direction of how it should. It is now curving in the right direction. Dr. Jon is extremely knowledgeable about chiropractic. He is holistic in his approach to better health. I highly recommend Dr. Jon."
