Chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia- why is it so difficult to recover?

Modern medicine does not have a wonderful track record addressing chronic fatigue syndromes, which are affecting us at epidemic proportions. A large proportion of patients that are on regular type treatments are not improving in health status. Many get sicker from the side effects of the medication and the psychological toll it has when you don’t have the energy to get out of bed day in and day out, being in constant pain. This is further aggravated when you have the responsibilities of raising a family, being a spouse etc.

Integrative oncology- marrying mainstream treatment with alternative supportive therapy

Integrative Oncology Practice is not a very well-known term to the public who often relate cancer or cancer diagnosis to chemotherapy, radiation or surgery as a treatment. Cancer treatment is so much more than just chemo, radiation and surgery. INTEGRATIVE ONCOLOGY incorporates this and looks at the support of the entire system, not just the shrinking of the tumour. This is imperative since the state of the immune system is paramount to ensure the successful healing and cure of the body. Chemo and radiation by nature are immune suppressive and this is often why after a ‘remission’ diagnosis there can be a metastasis or cancer resurgence due to the immune system being damaged and unable to control the proliferation of new cancer cell production after the initial diagnosis.

Menopause- a time to continue being vibrant and living your life- not a time to feel old!

It can be life altering and a scary time around menopause for ladies. Many don’t feel their best, with symptoms of fatigue, hot flushes, vaginal dryness and atrophy, a lack of zest for life and a torpedoing sex drive. They also may start to notice that their skin is not so supple and soft and has a lot more wrinkles than it had before menopause. This is a sign of a deficiency of estrogen. All this is often a total depression spinner for ladies, where they don’t feel themselves and can’t put a finger on exactly what is happening. From the perspective of the man or husband, the wife becomes short tempered and grumpy, and even maybe depressed and weepy or just totally withdrawn.
