Chronic Fatigue

Condition Description

Fatigue that lasts more than six months without an obvious cause

Common Symptoms

  • Undue tiredness
  • Often paired with other symptoms such as constipation, diarrhea, headaches, feeling excessively cold, muscle aches, or joint pain

Underlying Causes

Causes can be broadly divided in to two main categories: environmental and non-environmental causes.

  • Common environmental causes include subclinical hypothyroidism, adrenal insufficiency, food allergies, chemical sensitivity, nutritional deficiencies (especially mineral deficiencies), mold toxicity, and yeast overgrowth
  • Non-environmental causes are numerous and include anemia, cancer, chronic illness. Since most physicians are well-versed with such causes, these are rarely missed

Traditional Approach

  • Look for non-environmental causes; if found address the issue(s)
  • Where no cause is found, the diagnosis is chronic fatigue syndrome, which is treated with antidepressants, anti-anxiety pills, or counseling
  • Associated symptoms like muscle pain, headaches, low grade fever etc are treated symptomatically

Our Approach

  • Look for non-environmental causes; if found address the issue(s)
  • Conduct a detailed history and physical examination and appropriate testing to uncover the environmental causes like FOOD ALLERGY, CHEMICAL SENSITIVITY AND ENVIRONMENTAL ALLERGENS
  • Treat depending on the underlying cause

Story:

After two years of feeling sick most of the time, I’m happy and relieved to finally find the cause of my ailments. I had visited so many different types of doctors for my various symptoms. Two different dermatologists put me on antibiotics for over five years. I now realize how harmful that was for me. Within two weeks of my candida treatment, the diarrhea subsided, the bloating improved, back and neck pain not as severe, skin clearer, cravings gone, I’m not as fatigued, and I have no more problems with yeast or respiratory infections. I’ve even lost about 4 kiols from being on the candida diet. It’s been two months since I’ve begun treatment here and my general sense of well-being has dramatically improved. In addition, I used to suffer severe PMS 10-14 days before my period.

Story:

It has only been 6 weeks that these symptoms were part of my life, a part that I thought would never leave.  They came into my life for no reason that I knew of when I was about 28 years old.  I am 62 years old now.  Many years were lost trying to find some medical help to stop the hurt.  I could not find any.  Dr. Shahid’s diagnosis of a magnesium deficiency has been an answer to prayer.  Everything that was is now gone away.  The symptoms of this sickness are no longer a part of my life, and for that I am forever grateful to Dr. Shahid and his staff.  Thank you.

My success story is probably a lot like yours.  I had lost some weight, woke up tired every day, went to bed tired, and had terrible headaches.  Basically I got up and went to work at 8 am, and went home at noon and took a nap.  Now I work full time and feel 100% better!  Thanks.

Story:

When I first came for treatment, I was sick about twice a month for a few days each time.  I was vomiting a day or so each time.  I felt awful.  I was skeptical about the treatment at first, but saw later I felt much better.  While I’m still having some problems with agoraphobia  (Panic disorder with agoraphobia is an anxiety disorder in which a person has attacks of intense fear and anxiety. There is also a fear of being in places where it is hard to escape, or where help might not be available.)

I feel much better to be able to deal with things now.  Thank you.

Story:

For over 5 years, I had experienced severe chronic headaches, excessive fatigue and severe PMS, anxiety, depression, and pain.  After a 6-week bout of severe depression and about 20 Panadol  tablets each day, I decided I couldn’t live like that anymore.  My 4 children needed a “real” mother, not the irritable and sad person I’d been for 5 years.  In desperation, I contacted Dr. Shahid. Now, eight months later, I have been able to expand my career as teacher , since for the first time in my life I have the energy most other “normal” people have.  But most of all, my kids now have a mom who has the energy to “run around” and play with them, and who is no longer irritable and “snapping” at them all the time.   My headaches and PMS problems are almost completely gone.  Now I can finally have the career I wanted, helping my students, and above all, I have the loving family and home atmosphere I’ve always dreamed of.
