Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is characterized by persistent or relapsing
debilitating fatigue for at least 6 months in the absence of any other
definable diagnosis. Symptoms of CFS may include depression, hypotension,

time, CFS can make life miserable, wearing down the body, depressing
the spirit, and making a person much more vulnerable to a wide range
of related illnesses. Living with CFS can be even more difficult when
the individual--and those others around him or her--do not fully understand
the factors behind this debilitating condition.
often part of a complex, multi factorial health condition. There are
myriad possible internal and external mechanisms whereby the body's
metabolic system can get thrown "out of whack" and induce
feelings of exhaustion--and many of these mechanisms are interrelated.
are possible underlying causes and contributing factors of both fatigue
and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). It is important to distinguish
between the two conditions, because each one can be triggered by different

indicators. That is why we recommend you schedule a consultation with Dr. Rispoli. Click here to schedule.
and Adrenal Hormones:Chronically high or low levels
of powerful adrenal hormones can wear the body down and produce
feelings of exhaustion.
and Detoxification: Fatigue can develop from toxic stress
when the liver is no longer able to detoxify the body's harmful
waste by-products and heavy metals begin accumulating from external
and Oxidative Stress: Oxidative stress caused by unstable
free radical molecules can damage the energy-producing mechanisms
inside the body's cells.
and Gastrointestinal Parasites:Parasites
inside the GI tract can dramatically sap the body's energy.
and Digestive Function: Fatigue is often triggered by
malabsorption of important nutrients, along with the overgrowth
of intestinal yeasts such as Candida albicans.
and Glucose and Insulin: Insulin and glucose are two
key hormones highly involved in the body's regulatory action of
and Allergies: Fatigue and allergic sensitivity often
go hand-in hand, with a multitude of possible allergenic substances
hidden in the food we eat.
and Toxins and Nutrients: Exposure to toxins from the environment, especially in combination
with key nutrient shortages, can be an insidious source of chronic
and Fatty Acids: Identifying and treating fatty acid
deficiencies has been shown to increase energy levels in many patients
with chronic fatigue.
and Amino Acids: As the primary source of important proteins,
amino acids play a key role in the body's production of energy.
