“First and foremost, remove all obstacles to cure”
Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, 1755-1843, founder of Homeopathy
Homeopathic remedies play a powerful role in the treatment of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. It is my opinion, supported by my years of clinical practice, that homeopathy is the most effective form of treatment for this devastating illness. Of course, it is also essential to use support, drainage, and terrain repair such as herbs, nutrients, exercise, and diet changes to help support the body through the healing process. Although in homeopathy we tend to rely on symptoms alone to choose remedies for our patients, it is also very helpful to have empirical, scientific data on our patients. In practice, we are greatly aided by blood tests, stool samples to diagnose parasites, heavy metal screening, etc. It is essential to use the largest arsenal of information we can!
I would venture to say that CFS is not brought about by single cause, i.e. virus, etc., but is a manifestation of the “onion layering” principle of ill health. This means there are often many contributing factors to an eventual diagnosis of CFS. Viruses, fungus, heavy metal toxicity, pesticide and chemical toxicity, dental focus such as root canal problems, nutritional deficiency, stress, and miasmatic influences can all play a part. Maybe there is no true Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, especially if one is searching for a single cause. Of course, one must remain open to the idea that some mitigating factor, which alters the immune system in some way, will yet be discovered. This remains to be seen, and research continues. But good homeopathic treatment, with nutritional support, will lead to dramatic improvement in most cases of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
