Ayurvedic Herbal Treatment for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a group of symptoms which last for six months or more. The syndrome includes symptoms such as loss of memory, sore throat, enlarged lymph nodes, muscular pain, joint pain without inflammation, headache, loss of sleep, and extreme exhaustion. This syndrome usually affects people in their 40s and 50s, and is seen more in women. This medical condition results from the after effects of a virus infection, inflammation of the nervous system, hormonal disturbances, or an immune-compromised status. It is important to rule out specific infections like tuberculosis, HIV and malignancy; diagnosis of this syndrome is mostly by excluding all other known diseases. Chronic fatigue syndrome, by its very chronic nature, results in social isolation, depression, loss of working hours, and severe life style restrictions.

Chronic fatigue syndrome can be treated with Ayurvedic herbal medicines both symptomatically as well as to correct the likely causes for the condition. Medicines which strengthen the central nervous system as well as treat possible inflammation are used on a long-term basis. In addition, medicines which stimulate all the systems of the body as well as the important organs are used, so as to improve the body function to an optimum level and bring about a feeling of well-being, vigor, and vitality. Some individuals affected with this condition may also need mild sedatives in order to reduce sleeplessness. Anti-inflammatory Ayurvedic herbal medicines are also used in order to treat enlarged lymph nodes, sore throat, and muscular and joint pains.

In addition, herbal medicines which boost the immunity of the body, increase appetite, as well as remove toxins from the blood are used so as to treat chronic fatigue syndrome completely and prevent a recurrence of this condition. Most individuals affected with this syndrome need treatment for about three to six months, depending upon the severity and causes of the condition.

Ayurvedic herbal treatment can thus be utilised to completely treat and cure chronic fatigue syndrome.
