The chronic disorders of Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome affect millions of individuals in the United States, most of whom are females in their prime. Fibromyalgia (FM) causes pain in the muscles, fatigue and painful and tender spots on the body. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) causes severe exhaustion. Individuals with FM and CFS suffer with sleep problems, stiffness of muscles and joints, as well as numerous other symptoms.
Conventional Versus Unconventional Treatment
Most conventional treatments today merely treat symptoms. This ideology explains the wide use of antidepressants and pain medications. Because symptoms are being treated, the actual causes are not. We know that FM and CFS are real. They are not psychological illnesses. They are real illnesses with real causes and real treatments.
Although the onset of FM/CFS is hard to pinpoint, many times symptoms start after an individual has experienced an injury, trauma or infection. A thorough assessment of signs and symptoms is necessary in the diagnosis of FM/CFS. At Anti-Aging & Vitality Centers, our expert physicians thoroughly assess all symptoms and information, using data from health history, physical and blood tests.
If a patient is diagnosed with FM or CFS, treatment at Anti-Aging & Longevity Center will follow a treatment using this pattern:
Boost - Boost the immune system and mitochondria.
Balance - Balance the body’s nutrients and hormones.
Eliminate - Eliminate food allergies, infections and toxicity from heavy metals.
In our body’s cells, the mitochondria serve as the power producers. There is correlation between individuals with chronic conditions and mitochondria that perform poorly. Without the proper functioning of mitochondria, the body is weak on energy and the immune system suffers.
Your Anti-Aging & Longevity Center physician can increase the mitochondrial activity in your body immediately. This will improve the body’s functioning by increasing the immune system, metabolism and energy levels.
The human body contains hormones, bio-chemicals that are the most influential and abundant in the body. Hormones are responsible for regulating the body’s growth and metabolism, as well as regulate its reproduction. One of the main deterrents of the body’s hormones is stress. The presence of stress in the body can cause imbalances of hormones, resulting in physical and emotional breakdown. Hormonal deficiencies have been linked to FM and CFS. An Anti-Aging & Longevity Center doctor will assess an individual’s hormonal and nutritional levels to test for deficiencies. If imbalances are found, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is used in conjunction with high-grade supplements. Bioidentical hormone replacements are molecule-for-molecule identical to hormones produced by the human body. To be effective, these hormones must be individually-made for each patient. Through bioidentical hormones, individuals feel an improved and restored immune system, temperament, cognitive functioning and sense of fulfillment.
Individuals with FM and CFS often times have occult (hidden) infections, allergies to food and toxicity of heavy metals (including lead, mercury and others.) When these infections and toxins go untreated or undetected, they harm the body, drain its energy and increase the body’s rate of aging. The physicians at Anti-Aging & Vitality Centers are specially-trained to recognize, investigate and treat conditions that involve these infections and toxins. Our physicians don’t treat the symptoms, they actually find the causes unique to each patient, using proven techniques and treatment options.
Most individuals with FM or CFS have developed symptoms and problems over the course of years. Anti-Aging & Longevity Center understands the frustration associated with FM and CFS, and will work with patients to overcome these disorders to recovery. ALC’s treatment plan of detoxification and nutritional and hormonal balance has proven successful many times before, giving numerous patients a new hope for living a normal and healthy life.
