CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME

This condition has a variety of causes. Researchers have found that a number of viruses are actually involved, including Epstein-Barr virus, cytomegalovirus, and herpes simplex. Parasites and candida albicans are often found as part of the clinical picture as well. Exhausted adrenal glands and lowered immunity set the stage for this medically incurable viral condition. Most victims are women usually between the ages of twenty-four and forty-five who share the following profile: overachiever,outgoing, A-type personality, independent, and self-reliant. This profiles a person with high stress levels and lowered adrenal health. Natural therapies focus on building adrenal health, eliminating candida and parasites, and boosting immune function.

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a health disorder characterized by feelings of debilitation and lack of energy.
