Chronic Fatigue & CFIDS

Defined as:

  • Chronic fatigue of six months or longer duration with other known medical conditions excluded by clinical diagnosis.
  • The symptoms can be sudden or gradual and must have persisted or recurred during six or more consecutive months of illness and must not have predated the fatigue.
  • Similar Medical Conditions – Fibromyalgia syndrome, myalgic encephalomyelitis, neurasthenia, multiple chemical sensitivities, and chronic mononucleosis.

Symptoms
There are four main categories of symptoms in CFS:

  1. Fatigue – People with CFS experience profound, overwhelming exhaustion, which gets worse after exertion and can never be fully relieved by sleep.
  2. Pain - Pain in CFS includes muscle pain, joint pain, headaches, stomachaches, lymph node pain, and sore throats.
  3. Cognitive Problems and Neurological ProblemsCognitive Problems: People with CFS have trouble remembering words, names, and places, find it hard to concentrate, and have trouble thinking straight.  Neurological Problems: include dizziness and light-headedness, especially when standing up quickly.
  4. Sensitivies – People with CFS tend to be sensitive to light, sound, and some chemicals and foods.

Symptoms Resulting From a Disruption in the Brain’s Electrical Vitality:

* Brain Imbalance resulting in an Overactive Upper Brainstem (Mesencephalon) * Chronic pain & Chronic Fatigue * Migraine headaches & light sensitivity * Blurred vision * Increased sweating * Difficulty falling or staying asleep * Heart palpitations, increased heart rate * Irritable Bowel Syndrome * Urinary tract infections * High blood pressure * Fibro Fog or Flu-like symptoms

Evaluation of the Brain Based Care Patient

  • Screening Exam
  • Insight Technology Scan

Sensitive Computerized scans to determine Autonomic Nervous System Function, Pain Levels, and Physical Performance that may be affecting Cortical and Cerebellar input.

  • X-rays

X-rays, MRI’s or other imaging may be important to access damage to spine and nervous system.
Much of long term physical trauma is forgotten or minimized.

  • Comprehensive Health History

Allows us to identify any past and present stressors in your life – especially those resulting in Long Term Pain or Dysfunctior
Physical Stress- Current and Past Trauma, LT Pain
Chemical Stress – Metals, Hormones, Pesticides
Emotional Stress – Financial, Personal, Social

  • Comprehensive Functional Neuro and Physical Exam
  • Functional lab tests – as needed

- Analysis of Metabolic Conditions using Advanced lab Tests – Neurotransmitter Testing for Serotonin, Dopamine and Epinephrine levels – Comprehensive Digestive Testing for Intestinal Permeability, Dysbiosis and Metabolism – Super-sensitive Thyroid Testing – Mitochondrial Function Test for Energy Conversion Problems – Toxicity Tests – Adrenal Function for Stress
