Fibromyalgy and Chronic Fatigue Syndrom (CFS)

Fibromyalgy is a severe chronic disease with muscle pain. It causes a generalized pain of the muscle tissue and tendons base. Arms, legs and the entire torso may be affected. The pain is often described as

  • Muscle pain with painful trigger points within the muscle tissue or as
  • so called “tender points” especially at the base of the tendons

Possible side symptoms are:

  • Fatigue
  • Sleeping disorders
  • Morning stiffness
  • Irritable colon
  • Depression and lethargy as well as
  • Concentration weakness

The complaints may significantly reduce quality of life. In this case, a hormone replacement therapy with nature-identical hormones can reduce the symptoms or even eliminate them entirely.

Chronic fatigue and fibromyalgy conditions are often poorly understood and not sufficiently treated. The boundaries with psychosomatics and burn-out overlap. Nevertheless, a profound diagnosis as well as a re-balancing of the deficiencies can achieve significant and rapid treatment successes.

An important role is played by cellular understanding of the mitochondriopathy, a reduced energy production within the “power stations” of each individual cell. This is support by the highly effective herbal formulas provided by Chinese Medicine!

Nitro stress and oxidative stress: Along with the routine laboratory values, we also measure the oxidative and nitrosative stress levels, which may, equally, be the cause of the fibromyalgy condition.

Cortisol profile and fatty acid status: Further causal factors of the fibromyalgy condition are reduced endogenous cortisol levels as well as an unfavorable distribution of the fatty acid status. The latter is responsible for producing pain-inducing pain transmitters (prostaglandine).

Measures from the five pillars of Chinese Medicine such as acupuncture, acupressure (Tuina) and herbaltherapies can additionally strengthen body and mind. They also resolve the orthopedic tensions and Qi stagnation in the case of acute migraine attacks.
