Many who experience conditions like chronic fatigue also deal with frustration. This is because it is difficult to obtain a diagnosis, treatment options are limited, and even close friends and family often find it tough to understand the condition.
We are going to take a moment to look more closely at chronic fatigue and a related condition, fibromyalgia.
Seeking Natural Relief from Symptoms
Because medications are limited in effectiveness, many are seeking natural treatment. What are some methods that are recommended and frequently used?
- Getting proper sleep. This can be tough when you are in constant pain, but it is important to recognize that the cycle feeds on itself if allowed. The pain keeps a person up, and then not sleeping contributes to the pain. Sleep is a must.
- Hormone Levels – People who are suffering from these conditions often have one or more hormone deficiencies. These can be tested for and provided through a supplement.
- Healthy Eating – Diet plays a big role in how a person feels. Eating healthier foods can go a long way to dealing with chronic pain.
- Moderate Exercise – Again, this is where pain conditions feed on themselves. A person does not exercise because of the pain. The sedentary life makes the pain worse. Light to moderate exercise can help break the cycle.

Treating the Underlying Cause of Chronic Fatigue
Trauma of the head and neck is common in patients who suffer from chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia. These accidents or injuries often result in misalignments of the upper spine. Such a subluxation can cause a reduction in the flow of cerebrospinal fluid and blood to the brain. The result is a problem in brain-body communication.
An upper cervical chiropractor can help to restore normal brain-body communication by realigning the vertebrae. Dr. Joe Breuwet of Honolulu, Hawaii is one such specialized chiropractic practitioner. Upper cervical chiropractic can offer genuine relief to those whose symptoms have been caused by a misalignment.
