Get Relief for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome with Acupuncture

As we step further into fall and winter, the cold weather can have harsh effects on our bodies. We might feel tired, sluggish, and overall defeated. Moreover, moving around less can make us stiffer and lead to other common muscle aches. 

Chronic fatigue syndrome, otherwise known as ME/CFS, can cause these symptoms year-round, and they only increase in the wintertime with the lack of sunlight and colder temperatures. According to the CDC, between 836,000 and 2.5 million Americans have been estimated to have chronic fatigue syndrome. These symptoms can make everyday life difficult to deal with; however, TCM and acupuncture have been shown to greatly improve CFS.

Read on to learn more about the benefits of scheduling acupuncture appointments regularly to improve your overall well-being and get back to living a happy, fulfilling life.

CFS Explained 

What exactly causes CFS? Sometimes it onsets after a viral infection and can be associated with immune system issues, but its main cause has yet to be determined. The symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome can vary. They include, but are not limited to, constant fatigue, muscle weakness, headaches, dizziness, and insomnia.

These symptoms can make it hard to lead a happy, carefree life y but even though finding an effective treatment can seem difficult, it’s not impossible.

Have you ever considered acupuncture as a way to improve CFS symptoms? Acupuncture and TCM can have great benefits on the body and play an important role in helping relieve CFS.

5 Reasons Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Help CFS

  1. TCM is focused on energy imbalances and can help balance out deficiencies in the body and organs.
  2. TCM specialists will choose acupuncture points to best strengthen balances and help harmonize the body.
  3. A TCM specialist may also select herbs that aim to reduce inflammation and increase necessary nutrients. 
  4. Trials have shown that four weeks of acupuncture have helped improve CFS symptoms.
  5. A study showed a 90% effectiveness rate for treating CFS with TCM.

While the length of treatment varies from person to person, TCM and acupuncture are great options to explore if you’re looking for relief from chronic fatigue. It helps realign your body’s imbalances, decrease inflammation and overall symptoms such as sleep dysfunction, mental health blocks, fogginess, and more.
