Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Treatment
Traditional chronic fatigue syndrome treatment doesn’t usually work, because chronic fatigue syndrome is anything but a traditional disorder. Chronic fatigue syndrome is often a safe, fallback diagnosis for conventional doctors who can’t otherwise figure out why a patient is tired much of the time. But such a diagnosis doesn’t provide relief or answers to sufferers, who need a doctor willing to spend the time necessary to identify all the underlying causes of chronic fatigue syndrome.
At MD Wellness, Dr. Michael Rothman and his staff realize that treatment for chronic fatigue syndrome involves a lot more than a mere diagnosis. We know chronic fatigue syndrome can symptomatically manifest itself in a variety of other ways—such as fibromyalgia, hormonal imbalances and irritable bowel syndrome—and that it is caused by metabolic imbalances and environmental issues that are often unrecognized.
Treatment for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Many times, chronic fatigue syndrome treatment involves a complete change to a patient’s diet and a monitoring of his or her blood sugar. Treatment for chronic fatigue syndrome can be a matter of raising a patient’s blood sugar (because low blood sugar leads to hypoglycemia and fatigue), as well as lowering it. High blood sugar (hyperglycemia) can activate the parasympathetic nervous system and result in low energy, sluggishness and sleepiness.
There are countless immune, nervous system, and hormonal problems that can contribute to a state of chronic fatigue. These include thyroid disease, dysautonomia, hormonal imbalances, exposure to a water damaged building containing mold and other toxic substances, Lyme disease mineral imbalances and many more.
Addressing the symptoms during chronic fatigue syndrome treatment does not solve the problem. Dr. Rothman and the staff at MD Wellness will get the answers sufferers of chronic fatigue syndrome have long been seeking.
At MD Wellness, our philosophy is in our name, which stands for “metabolically directed wellness.” We believe that all ailments such as chronic fatigue syndrome are related to an imbalance in the system, but too many doctors try to treat the ailment without finding what is causing it in the first place. We believe chronic fatigue syndrome treatment should be a matter of “find the cause, fix the cause” so that we can give our patients a better quality of life moving forward.
