Chronic fatigue is a debilitating sense of tiredness or exhaustion that persists even after resting. The tiredness is both physical and mental, and people report waking up feeling unrefreshed and feeling worse especially after exercising. It is non-discriminating in whom it affects, it can occur at any age – even occurring in children. Chronic fatigue cannot be explained by an underlying medical condition.
The most common symptoms of chronic fatigue include problems with memory, ‘brain fog’, feeling dizzy and weak, tender or aching muscles, joint pain, frequent sore throats or tender lymph nodes. The symptoms, and their severity, vary over the course of the illness, which may last anywhere from a couple of months to years.
Treatment and how I work
My vast training in a number of modalities allows me to incorporate various tools into my work. Essentially, I see your issue as an opening, or a pathway that is merely the opportunity for us to walk along or through to uncover the deeper messages that the wisdom of your body is trying to tell us. Your challenge is not a failure or a negative, it is a message of brilliance that your body is trying to tell you.
My work is about what works best for you, and what will enable you to become your best possible self.
Your relationship with your body and food is thus a teacher, and an opportunity to learn and grow. By listening to the message, hearing what it is conveying and making meaning from it, you have the opportunity to make changes and move forward. Symptoms and feelings will continue to come back until their message is learnt. Everyone is different, and there is no one size fits all approach or modality. My work is about what works best for you, and what will enable you to become your best possible self.
