Since the causes and diagnoses of ME and CFS are undetermined, the term 'recovery' can be too general a statement for some - this is why it makes sense for each person to have an individual approach.
So, what we are saying is that a number of factors contributed to your decline in health and therefore those different factors will need to be addressed in order to influence your innate ability to heal. The combination of these factors put significant demand on your bodily systems, activating the sympathetic nervous system and what is commonly known as the Fight or Flight response. This moves your body into a state of survival. If this continues over a prolonged period the immune system is surpressed, reducing your body’s ability to heal.
Given that there are multiple factors contributing to the onset of these conditions, it would make sense that an individual approach is necessary in order to facilitate sustainable results. Addressing the body as a whole and working with the different factors in the correct order can facilitate a return towards normal function of all systems and in turn improved health.
The Fight or Flight response is part of our stress reaction, so are you saying it’s all to do with addressing stress?
Yes and no. The term stress is more commonly used to describe a bad day or having too much to do at any one time, but usually well within our capabilities to manage. However, the significant demand that has been put on your body far exceeds this - it is the same as comparing the fatigue experienced as part of ME/CFS/FM with being naturally tired - and it can be the result of a physical stress such as a bacteria or virus, in addition to emotional stressors. So, yes we are addressing the stressors you experience on a day to day basis, including the the social and financial implications illness will be having on your life. We are also very importantly addressing the roots of many of the contributing factors which have had significant impact on your stress response and your health.
"Any treatment which reduces the stress response will improve chronic fatigue syndrome and many other conditions"
