Chronic Fatigue and Women

Because a woman’s body can be subjected to various forms of stress such as those encountered during pregnancy, a lot of ailments affect women’s health. Moreover, physiological and bodily changes are also brought about by menstruation and menopause, both of which may result in bodily and psychological changes in a woman. However, one common ailment that women face is the chronic fatigue syndrome or CFS.

The Nature of Chronic Fatigue

CFS is a case that has many labels and attached interpretations to it, but most of the women affected by it do not really know the real cause and means of treatment for the disorder. Fatigue is a situation that affects all women, but CFS is far different. It involves all known forms of fatigue and stress. Ordinary fatigue may be remedied by getting enough rest, but CFS cannot be treated by rest alone. The disorder is characterized by muscle and joint pains and mental and physical exhaustion. Although all of these symptoms may be experienced by all women, the name CFS is applied when the situation appears in a previously healthy woman. As such, understanding the causes of chronic fatigue and for women to effectively combat it is a must.  

Onset of Chronic Fatigue 

The disorder affects women mostly in their 40s and 50s. When the symptoms occur during their 50s, it is commonly mistaken as an effect brought about by menopause. Because of this perception, treatment of the disorder is postponed, with the patient only realizing much later that what is happening is not a mere product of menopause. By then, the disorder may have progressed so much that treatment becomes complicated. Needless to say, early diagnosis of the disease is important to ensure full treatment. 
Treatment for Chronic Fatigue

Because of the debates going on as to the nature of the disease and how it is contracted, treatment for it is also unclear. Meanwhile, experts continue to stress any of the following or a combination of the following as ways to possibly counter chronic fatigue syndrome. 

* Medication. Dietary supplements, antidepressants, and pain killers are the most commonly proffered drugs. Although their actual effectiveness in actually combating the disorder as a whole are still largely unknown and unproven, they are nonetheless prescribed due to the fact that patients who suffer from CFS commonly exhibit symptoms that any of these medications can treat. As such, despite doubts as to their actual benefit, they are still prescribed by medical experts.

* Physiotherapy. This is more to treat muscular and other physiological symptoms exhibited by a patient with CFS. Again, just like the case with medication, they do not really combat the disease as one. They rather act on the individual symptoms.

* Cognitive behavioral therapy. This is more of a psychological treatment that allows experts to probe deep into the mind of a patient suffering from CFS. The main goal of this is for patients to understand the stage they are in and to develop a healthy mind frame which experts think are very helpful in successfully combating the disorder. Another reason for employing psychological therapy is to help prevent patients from committing suicide – a by-product of the depression that patients affected with CFS commonly develop.

Understanding chronic fatigue symptoms and women’s health is a process that still requires much research. But just like other processes, this one is also aimed towards better understanding on how to combat the disorder and make women able to cope more with its symptoms.

Chronic Fatigue That Developed After the Flu

There are as many reasons for chronic fatigue as there are people suffering from it. How it started in you is unique to you. It may have started after you recovered from an acute disease. It may have started after a medical procedure, such as an operation or a vaccination. It may have started after you suffered a bad shock, after an accident or after a fright.

One of the most common scenarios for chronic fatigue is after you have recovered from a bad dose of a virus, particularly the flu. It is reckoned that over half chronic fatigue sufferers come from this.

It’s bad enough that you had a bad dose of the flu, without complications afterwards. Especially complications that seem to drag on and on.

You can be so debilitated that you have to give up hobbies and pastimes or even work. Your social and family life suffers as a result. Your partner may not be very sympathetic, thinking you’re putting it on to get those extra hours in bed.

You miss out on your children’s activities because you have no energy either to take an interest in them or to muster up the energy to take them out.

The good news is that there is highly effective and totally natural help at hand.

In the form of homeopathic remedies.

Which you can buy over the counter inexpensively and treat yourself.

The homeopathic remedy Gelsemium is a great candidate for resolving your chronic fatigue if it started after a bad dose of the flu. But your symptoms do have to match those of the remedy to affect a healing.

So lets look at some of the most important keynote symptoms you might have or had during the flu for Gelsemium to work for you.

  • never well since the flu or flu vaccination
  • a great heaviness, even your head, eyelids and/or tongue feel heavy
  • trembling of your arms or legs especially after slight exertion
  • chills down your back or heat alternating with chills
  • you have no desire to drink at all
  • headache which is better after you have urinateddizziness
  • dullness

For any homeopathic remedy to work, you only need three keynote symptoms. Bearing in mind you already have one, the first one, you only have to pick out another two.

Another symptom you probably have is the heaviness or dullness so typical in chronic fatigue.

If you find you’re also dizzy or thirstless, there’s your third keynote symptom.

You can buy some common homeopathic remedies from health shops, homeopaths and homeopathic pharmacies.

For home prescribing, you are limited to the potency (or strength) of the remedies you can purchase. So you should only be able to purchase low potencies, such as a 6c or a 30c. 30c is more powerful than 6c.

Directions will be on the bottle, so follow them. As a general rule, take the 6c twice a day or the 30c once every day or every other day.

Within about a week, you should be noticing some change, if only small. The changes may be subtle, but you should be noticing that you have a bit more energy. If this is the case, carry on. Stop when you have reached your old level of energy.

However, if you don’t see any changes after about a week to 10 days, then you probably didn’t get the symptoms right and Gelsemium is not for you. In which case you should discontinue with the remedy. It won’t help every case of chronic fatigue that developed after a virus. But it will help many.
