Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), although a relatively newly defined syndrome by the Centre for Disease Control in 1988, has actually been around for hundreds of years.

Causative features

  1. Viral origin:
  • Epstein Barr virus
  • Herpes simplex virus
  • Cytogmgalo virus
  • Entero virus
  • Retro virus
  1. Candida (yeast like fungi)
  2. Food allergies and intolerances

Chronic fatigue can also be caused by a variety of physical and psychological factors other than CFS.  It is important to establish a differential diagnosis in order for a treatment rationale to be implemented.

Signs and symptoms

  • Occurs mainly in adults aged from 20 to 40 years and twice as many women as men develop CFS.
  • Excessive and debilitating fatigue with low grade fever
  • Swollen and tender lymph nodes and recurrent sore throat.
  • Joint and muscle pain which may be migratory in nature.
  • Depression and anxiety about one’s state of health
