Chronic Fatigue Syndrome & Fibromyalgia

Darren Grech - Perth Naturopath, Homeopath & Medical Herbalist

For over 15 years Darren Grech has specialised in treating both Chronic Fatigue Syndrome & Fibromyalgia.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia can respond very well to treatment using Homeopathy & Naturopathic medicine. The results have been very satisfactory.

The goal & highest ideal with this treatment method is to actually heal the condition.

Often CFS & Fibromyalgia are experience together in the one patient. They can often both respond very well to homeopathic & naturopathic treatment protocols. The entire syndrome needs to be assessed and treated.

Chronic Fatigue &/or Fibromyalgia sufferers not only have physical exhaustion to handle, but the difficult challenge of having to cope emotionally with a condition that is poorly understood, often difficult to diagnose, and very often unresponsive to many treatments. As a result these patients are often also clinically depressed and the medical profession simply give anti-depressants which often lead to even more fatigue & more complications.

Thankfully, homeopathy exists as a system of medicine which has often had very good results, gradually healing many of the symptoms. Homeopathy treats the individual manifestation of symptoms bringing about homeostasis and healing. This means that often different patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome &/ or Fibromyalgia need a different medicine than another suffering with the same condition name.

A diagnosis of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is made when at least three of the following symptoms have been present for several months:

  • Extreme fatigue generally not improved by rest (unrefreshing sleep)
  • Extreme tiredness after physical exertion
  • Fibromyalgia (muscle pain)
  • Muscle weakness
  • Impaired memory and concentration
  • Insomnia
  • Ongoing sore throat and tender lymph nodes
  • Joint pain without inflammation
  • Chronic headaches
  • Dizziness.

Conditions associated with chronic fatigue are:

  1. Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  2. Multiple food intolerances
  3. Chemical sensitivities.
  4. Cold intolerance
  5. Restless Leg Syndrome
  6. Irritable Bladder Syndrome.

Fibromyalgia Syndrome and Chronic Myofascial Pain Syndrome can have similar symptoms and can occur in the same individual. Widespread muscle aches, tender trigger points, cramps, headaches, tiredness and restless legs are common. With this there are many of the CFS symptoms like difficult concentration & digestive disturbances. The complexity tells us that there are multiple causes for these syndromes (multi-factorial).

In Darren Grech’s vast experience he has found that with skilful Homeopathic prescribing, Fibromyalgia & Chronic Fatigue Syndrome can in most cases be treated with excellent success. He has found that each individual always needs a unique sequence of medicines to establish relief. Often patients present with various food allergies or sensitivities & even these are often healed. Homeopathic treatment works much more deeply & holistically than vitamin supplementation and covers the complexity of unique symptoms which is the key to successfully eradicating these conditions.

The treatment offered has helped many patients have their health fully restored and can often get their life back.
