This very debilitating problem is a challenge for both orthodox medicine and holistic practitioners.
Because this condition is difficult to diagnose and all tests are usually normal, orthodox medicine does not have a lot to offer in the treatment of Post-viral fatigue.
I will always prescribe a remedy that suits the total symptom picture. Cases vary enormously and so different people suffering from this syndrome require different homeopathic remedies.
As fatigue is the main symptom, a deep relaxation technique is a logical treatment and I recommend a course of Autogenics to nearly all patients suffering from this condition.
A healthy diet is essential in the treatment of this condition and I try to ensure that all patients eat regular and healthy meals.
I only use this in patients who recognise that in their particular case, psychological factors are very important and are willing to have some painful facts about themselves mirrored to them in the empathic, warm, satirical world of reverse psychology and Provocative Therapy.
