Is it Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or the after effects of a virus?
Posted on 26th October 2017 at 16:28
Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) causes persistent fatigue (exhaustion) that affects everyday life and doesn’t go away with sleep or rest. CFS is also known as ME, which stands for myalgic encephalomyelitis. There’s some debate over the correct term to use for the condition, but these pages will refer to the condition as CFS. CFS is a serious condition that can cause long-term illness and disability, but many people – particularly children and young people – improve over time.
Who is affected?
It’s estimated around 250,000 people in the UK have CFS.
Anyone can get the condition, although it’s more common in women than men.
It usually develops when people are in their early 20s to mid-40s. Children can also be affected, usually between the ages of 13 and 15.
How it affects quality of life
Most cases of CFS are mild or moderate, but up to one in four people with CFS have severe symptoms. These are defined as follows:
mild – you’re able to care for yourself, but may need days off work to rest
moderate – you may have reduced mobility, and your symptoms can vary; you may also have disturbed sleep patterns and need to sleep in the afternoon
severe – you’re able to carry out minimal daily tasks, such as brushing your teeth, but have significantly reduced mobility, and may also have difficulty concentrating
Why it happens
It’s not known exactly what causes CFS. Various theories have been suggested, including:
a viral or bacterial infection
problems with the immune system
an imbalance of hormones
psychiatric problems, such as stress and emotional trauma
Some people are thought to be more susceptible to the condition because of their genes, as the condition is more common in some families.

How we can help
Here at Advanced Healing Therapies we help treat this condition using our advanced technology we treat each client with the Acuscope on Head bands and Earclips. This involves placing special electrodes on the ear lobes or the frontal bone of the head, the instrument, when set at the appropriate frequencies, will induce a relaxed concentration in the client within 20 to 30 minutes. This procedure, also known as “Electro-Sleep” or “cranial electric stimulation” or CES has been applied successfully by medical specialists ranging from dentists to psychiatrists.
During the consultation which takes place at the beginning of the treatment we usually discover that our clients have recently suffered with a virus or infection that is still present in the body. We use a Lymph Drainage protocol which releases toxins from the blocked Lymph node that are later flushed out through the body. Each Lymph node takes 10 minutes to treat and gives massive relief to the client.
After this we use Auriculotherapy to stimulate the following points on the ear; Vitality Point, Adrenal Gland.C, Adrenal Gland.F, ACTH, Point Zero, Shen Men, Master Oscillation, Anti-Depressant Point 1 and Anti-Depressant Point 2.
Please read our previous blogs to learn more about Auriculotherapy.
After this treatment some clients have found that they no longer represent symptoms of CFS and that they may have been suffering from blocked Lymph nodes, indicating they may have been miss diagnosed. However other clients have continued to represent CFS symptoms and have continued a course of 4 treatments here at our clinic and then a maintenance treatment monthly.
