Fatigue is a symptom of many different disorders, both psychological and physical. It is often difficult to discover its cause with modern Western diagnostic methods. Fortunately, diagnosing and treating this sort of generalized complaint is one of the strong points of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The first and most important step is to examine the person's lifestyle to eliminate any possible causes of fatigue, such as lack of sleep, poor diet, insufficient exercise, or overworking. Without correcting these problems, it is difficult or impossible to restore the patient's energy level. Once the proper lifestyle adjustments are made, treatment, particularly with herbal therapy, is much more likely to be effective.
The most common diagnoses in cases of chronic fatigue are deficiency of Qi, blood or yang. In many cases a combination of these syndromes is the cause of low energy.
In cases of Qi (pronounced CHEE) deficiency, there may be no physical abnormality, but the body lacks sufficient energy to perform various functions. In addition to fatigue, the patient has a weak pulse, pale tongue, bright pale face, and, possibly, shortness of breath and poor appetite, depending on the organs involved.
Most Qi formulas boost energy by improving the function of the lungs, spleen, and kidneys. Some appropriate herbal formula to rectify Qi deficiency are Adaptogenic Energizer, Radiant Immune Defense and Brain Tonic. Typically, these herbal remedies are taken for a few months, since chronic deficiency syndromes take longer to rectify. It is very important to have a free consultation before ordering any of these formula to make certain they are right for you.
