Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) starts as a persistent fatigue that lasts six months or more. Physical and mental activity may worsen the condition, but sleep does not provide relief. Originally dubbed "The Yuppie Flu" in the 1970s, CFS is accompanied by four or more other maladies - short-term memory loss or inability to concentrate, sore throat, muscle pain, joint pain and/or tender lymph nodes. "It is a therapeutic challenge," says Naturopath Bharadvaj, who explains that naturopathic treatments are proving effective in the treatment of CFS, either alone or in concert with Western medicines.
