Chronic Fatigue

Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired? 

People with chronic fatigue syndrome(CFS) sleep poorly and awake unrefreshed. They may experience frequent headaches, muscle and joint pain, recurring sore throats, and memory and concentration problems.

 

The intensity and type of symptoms can vary from day to day and from person to person. On a “good day,” symptoms may be mild and someone with CFS may be able to function at a near normal level; on a “bad day,” they may be unable to get out of bed. Their condition is not improved by bed rest and can be worsened by mental activity.

CFS has multiple triggers that may include:

  • Viral infection such as Epstein Barr virus, although no microbe has been proven to be the cause

  • Immune dysfunction provoked by trauma, stress, or allergy, which in turn triggers CFS

  • Nutritional deficiency

  • Adrenal Fatigue and Hormone Imbalances

  • Disturbance of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis, possibly caused by inactivity, sleep disturbance, psychiatric comorbidity, medication, or ongoing stress.

Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis

Blood tests have been used as a tool for determining health status for a long time. However, conventional blood tests have been used mainly for diagnosing disease.

 

Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis is a new approach and one of the best methods to identify underlying biochemical and nutritional imbalances that dictate the health status. Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis helps to interpret blood test markers and understand these imbalances to prevent disease before it affects one’s health.

 

Traditional medical lab ranges are looking for disease pathologies where as functional lab ranges are looking at the physiological changes of organ systems that happen before a disease occurs.  

 

They are also known as optimal ranges and pathological ranges. Test values that fall between optimal ranges and pathological ranges are considered sub-clinical and may indicate the beginning stages of disease. In other words, there might be a condition that isn’t bad enough to be treated medically.

Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis provides a great deal of information about your health status. This comprehensive analysis helps to decode blood markers to understand nutritional needs for achieving and maintaining health.

WHY BLOOD TESTING?

Blood has a lot to tell us about our state of health and the blood chemistry and CBC / hematology test is the most commonly ordered medical lab test worldwide.

 

These blood tests are an integral part of Western clinical medicine and are used to aid in the diagnostic decision-making process. Patients understand blood testing is normal for assessing your health.

By looking at your blood laboratory tests from a Functional Medicine viewpoint, we can get to the root cause of your Chronic Fatigue. Lab tests we generally request are:

Additional tests may be recommended to follow up abnormal findings on the general tests and as warranted by signs and symptoms. These additional tests are used to help identify disorders that may cause signs and symptoms similar to CFS, such as fatigue. A few examples include:
