Understanding Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)
Medically, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is an unexplained condition causing mental and physical fatigue. The condition leads the sufferer to hold a false belief that engaging in any mental or physical activity will make them feel more ill. They perceive being inactive as the true solution to their problem – a perception that’s faulty to the core.
To make it worse, a person suffering from CFS tends to believe that being active is a hindrance to their recovery from their disturbance, and this unfortunate urge to avoid activity may lead to further depression, mental de-conditioning, and extreme perpetuation of the symptoms associated with the ailment. Now you see just how serious CFS can be if ignored.
One problem with CFS is that it’s a bit hard to diagnose the condition since most of its symptoms like fatigue are also associated with many other illnesses. The severity of these symptoms may vary from one person to another, and extreme symptoms may render a person totally inactive and requiring a wheelchair to move around. The most prevalent symptoms associated with CFS include:
· Muscle pain
· Shortness of breath
· Chest pain
· Irregular heartbeat
· Chronic coughs
· Joint pains and swelling
· Night sweats
· Sore throats
· Disturbed sleep patterns
· Unexplained extreme tiredness
· Intolerance to physical exercises
· Chronic headaches and stress
· Abdominal and digestive disturbances
· Cognitive shortcomings like short term memory loss, lack of concentration, and poor self-articulation and organization
· Unfounded anxiety and panic attacks
Note that since most of these symptoms are also prevalent in other medical conditions, a patient is diagnosed with CFS only after all other conditions have been screened and options exhausted.
There have studies into the possible causes of CFS, with the most notable pointing to a genetic vulnerability as well as a person in general being prone to stress, depression, viral and bacterial infections, as well as majorly disturbing life experiences or events – like the death of a loved one.
The Role of Hypnosis in Dealing with CFS
The sad fact about CFS is that many people don’t know that it’s actually a very easily solvable problem. They rely on medications that can sometimes worsen the condition, especially when the sufferer gets hooked to anti-depressants and such other mind-altering medications. Hypnosis seeks to avoid all these pitfalls and focus on the real problem at hand without entertaining the potential onset of undesirable side-effects.
In itself, hypnosis is a stage-by-stage induction process of cognitive behavioral therapy aimed at fostering a positive attitude that encourages activity by the affected person. This process helps deal with CFS symptoms on both emotional and physical levels by programming their mind to recognize the best in themselves and therefore perform better and faster in addressing stress, lack of motivation, self-esteem issues, fatigue, traumatic memories, and other related effects of CFS. Specifically dealing with some of the negative emotoinal content that often plays a part in the condition, unbeknown to to the person suffering from effects. With such positive developments, the sufferer is then in an able position to resolve any underlying issues and behavioral patterns that trigger CFS.
As much a professional hypnotherapist may want to help you get back on track, it’s best that you also make efforts to fast-track the recovery process. You need to avoid things like inactivity, unhealthy diets, environmental pollution, and infections – bacterial and viral. This also works best to prevent a relapse after undergoing hypnotherapy and helps you keep in the best condition for quick and full recovery.
