Home Remedies For Fatigue Syndrome

 

Fatigue is the most common presenting complaint in doctor’s offices, and can be part of scores of serious medical conditions, as much as from overwork or lack of sleep. Underlying causes need to be identified, and natural medicine recognizes many less obvious contributing factors. These include chronic intestinal dysbiosis, liver overload, adrenal exhaustion, hidden infections (yeast, viral or parasitic), and food allergies. Typical short-term solutions such as caffeine, tobacco, sugar, and other stimulants are ultimately debilitating to the hormonal and nervous systems. That is why home remedies for fatigue syndrome are the best long-term option to complement your treatment.

Herbal medicines should be directed toward the underlying causes, but for simple fatigue, tonic and adaptogenic herbs can be relied upon. These have the ability to increase vitality and well-being, balancing and improving the function of the body’s major control systems—immune, hormonal, cardiovascular, and nervous. Thus they are particularly suitable for the effects of prolonged stress, both physical and psychological. This class of botanical medicines can help compensate for and overcome the effects of overwork, depression, prolonged illness, and convalescence after an illness. In this list of home remedies for fatigue syndrome, you will find the whole spectrum of benefits.

Optimal effects occur when tonics are taken long-term (i.e. one to six months). They are best taken in chronic illness, rather than acutely, and are typically used in a cycle of 3 weeks on and one week off.
