Chronic Fatigue Syndrome has a Much Better Name

The Institute of Medicine proposed a new name for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome:  “Systemic Exertion Intolerance Disease”.  It is cumbersome but it better describes a problem that can devastate the victims.  Usually the illness is triggered by a virus, allergy, or environmental toxins.  It is marked by a profound depletion of energy following minimal physical or mental activity.  Drug therapy give little relief, but integrative treatment of a yeast imbalance, allergy desensitization, and thyroid and adrenal support can be very helpful.

Google the Institute of Medicine report on CFS, April, 2015.
