Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia: holistic help when traditional medicine falls short

If you are suffering needlessly from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or Fibromyalgia and your conditions have not responded to well to medical care, there may still be help for you! You should know that millions of people regularly experience the natural, drug-free approach to optimum health and wellness through chiropractic, acupuncture treatments, and other wellness modalities, including relief from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia.

Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and fibromyalgia (FM) are ill defined groups of symptoms that have become a catch-all diagnosis by many health care practitioners when nothing else can be found to explain the symptoms. In the case of fibromyalgia, pain is included in the symptoms. The following is a list of symptoms that have been associated with these diagnoses:

mild fever         joint pain         lymphadenopathy

sore throat        irritability        unexplained muscle weakness

muscle pain      depression       inability to concentrate

headache          confusion        recurrent tonsillitis

forgetfulness     sleep disturbance

The difficulty in treating this disease for many health care practitioners is due largely to the number of systems and organs that can be involved in its cause. The following conditions are some of the more common physiological imbalances that can lead to CFS and FM:

hypothyroidism         anemia                   chemical toxicities

hypoglycemia           dietary factors         digestive disturbances

chronic infections      allergies                  structural imbalances

Patients diagnosed with these syndromes consistently suffer from structural, chemical, and emotional imbalances within their bodies. Some of these include: Misaligned vertebrae and other joints, chronic viral or bacterial infections, chronic parasites and fungal infections, chemical and heavy metal toxicities, and the emotional effects of chronic stress on the body and mind.  The task for the doctor treating these patients is to find the imbalances that are present and know how to correct them.

At The Institute of Chiropractic & Acupuncture Therapy Dr. Burrup uses the latest technology through Computerized Health Analysis as well as other wellness therapies in locating these imbalances and returning the patient to a state of balance and good health.
