Chronic Fatigue Syndrome remains a controversial subject in medical circles. Simply put, some medical professionals do not believe CFS exists. Others are convinced that it’s a real illness and deserves more study. There is a school of thought that holds certain people with CFS can benefit from undergoing bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. Here are a few things you should know about this approach and what it can potentially accomplish.
How Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy Works
The goal of bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is to balance your hormone levels and provide the body with what it’s no longer producing in adequate amounts. This treatment involves undergoing pellet therapy, which involves inserting pellets under the skin for a continual release of hormones into the body.
Ideally, the therapy restores normal hormone levels and balance, which alleviates chronic fatigue. When that happens, a patient suffering with CFS may begin to experience significant improvement in a number of ways.
Helping to Improve the Quality of Your Sleep
Getting to sleep is not always difficult for someone with chronic fatigue. Enjoying recuperative sleep is another matter. You may sleep a great deal but obtain no apparent benefits. It’s possible to feel worse when you wake up than when you went to bed.
With replacement therapy, this begins to change. You do notice that you feel more rested in the morning. Over time, that’s joined with other benefits as your hormone levels return to normal ranges.
Normalizing Your Energy Levels
With CFS, there are times when you’re so tired that taking a shower or even walking from one room to the next is more than you can handle. As the bio-identical hormone replacement therapy begins to take effect, the physical energy needed to manage routine tasks starts to return. At first, you notice that it’s less tiring to do certain things. After a time, some of those tasks are so easy to manage that you don’t realize what’s happening until you’re finished with them. That’s when you really begin to celebrate the effects of the therapy.
Chronic fatigue robs more than your physical energy. You also find it harder to focus mentally, assimilate new information, or even engage in any activity that requires concentration. As the bio-identical hormone replacement therapy starts to work, it’s easier to read a book and retain what you just read. Work tasks that had become difficult are easy again. Even watching a movie starts to be fun once more.
