In our ME treatment, we often find that many patients have been to their GPs and various consultants due to the debilitating symptoms of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS/ME – Myalgic Encephalopathy).
Unfortunately this chronic illness, affecting multiple systems of the body is poorly understood by mainstream medicine. Patients are often prescribed pain-killers, steroids and anti-depressants for purely symptomatic relief. This does little to resolve the underlying issues fuelling this condition and often leads to unwanted side effects. So many questions unanswered is what we hear from patients’ previous experience.
In our ME treatment, we aim to discover all the parts of your health jigsaw in order to see the whole picture. ME is very often found with many imbalances, so the patient can experience symptoms encompassing multiple systems in the body:
- Extreme fatigue
- Brain fog
- Digestive disturbance
- Joint pains
- Muscle pain
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Yeast/fungal infections
- Auto immune illness
- EMF sensitivity
- Sensitivity to chemicals
- Poor tolerance for any exercise
- Depression and anxiety
Our ME treatment seeks to understand the root of the imbalance and address it at a fundamental level, so that the body is slowly strengthened, and thus symptoms can resolve. We have worked with numerous ME patients and helped them permanently reverse the effects of this very debilitating condition.
Cutting edge tests, not available through the NHS, are used to find imbalances in the individual’s system. These are then addressed with a unique plan incorporating natural medicine, bespoke dietary plans through the very experienced Nutritional Therapist on our team, and guidance for lifestyle. We understand the sensitivity of the ME patient’s system and will work slowly and safely, guiding patients to better health.
It is our profound belief that chronic illness is not a life sentence, and that full recovery is possible.
