Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
 
Standard Definition

Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) involves fatigue that is sufficiently intense and persistent to reduce normal daily activities by at least 50% for a minimum of six months. It is typically not resolved with rest. Women are affected almost twice as often as men. Often it begins after an acute infectious illness. Fatigue may also be a symptom of a serious underlying disease and therefore proper, thorough diagnosis by your healthcare practitioner is essential

 
 
Underlying Disruption in Function

It is believed that there are multiple avenues that lead to CFS. A stressed immune system caused by acute or chronic illness, negative emotional factors, stress, poor nutrition and exposure to environmental pollutants may all combine to increase the susceptibility to developing CFS. Identification of the underlying, inter-related processes is important in the diagnosis and treatment of this complex condition.
