CHRONIC FATIGUE: A Modern Day Challenge

Chronic Fatigue

If you have been diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome you may experience one or more of the following  official symptoms:

  • Fatigue
  • Loss of memory or concentration
  • Sore throat
  • Enlarged lymph nodes in your neck or armpits
  • Unexplained muscle pain
  • Pain that moves from one joint to another without swelling or redness
  • Headache of a new type, pattern or severity
  • Unrefreshing sleep
  • Extreme exhaustion lasting more than 24 hours after physical or mental exercise

I still remember clearly suffering from and being diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome symptoms. There were times that I could barely crawl, I was so weak. I felt awful all the time. Chronic fatigue symptoms can be a part of other health conditions and diagnoses.

I tried many conventional and non conventional approaches in my quest for symptom free status.  The most significant improvement in my condition in the past was ‘determining my weak list’.

What does a weak list mean?

Sometimes it means you are allergic to the items. The resulting biofeedback ‘weak response’ can be indicative of an association your body has made about a product, substance or situation in the past at a time of extreme trauma or duress. A ‘weak response’ can also mean that something is going on in the body at this time, which added to the use of the product or substance or recall of a past similar association; is a temporary bad combination (e.g. during detoxification, rapid growth, healing, recovery, hormone change, distress, treatment, medications, your body’s present chemical equation). Generally speaking it means that the item or factor is causing confusion, interference, imbalance, malfunction or damage. Sometimes it is to the immune system, sometimes to the nervous, endocrine or other systems, and sometimes to the liver or heart; all necessary to stay strong and healthy. If this happens on a daily/weakly basis the results can be catastrophic.

How do you get your weak list? 

The best way to get an unbiased weak list is to have a qualified practitioner provide you with the information. The ideal person is someone who has nothing to gain or lose by the results (e.g. sale of products). All you are looking for is a list of items or factors that cause weakness. You will use that information to avoid; so your body can rebound. The next step is to learn muscle response testing so that you have the tools to assess potential ‘weakening’ items or factors ongoing. Learning and using muscle response testing basically saved my life and allowed my body to rest. By avoiding everything on my weak lists my body focused its energies on healing and repair instead of vigilance and protection. 

Chronic fatigue syndrome does not have to be forever. You too can be 100% symptom free. You can learn the basics of muscle response testing and other rejuvenating strategies that brought me to 100% healthy and energetic in my book THE WHOLE PERSON WELL-BEING EQUATION

p.s. If a weakening item turns out to be something you absolutely can not avoid (e.g. medications for HIV or Aids), there is a way.  I have developed a protection technique that I teach clients so that the offending item or factor does not cause weakness (an override). Understandably you would not be able to do this with every item on your list. The protection sequence details can be found in my book THE WHOLE PERSON WELL-BEING EQUATION.
