There are a huge myriad of potential triggers for CFS/ME and even more symptoms, which when assessed together give the diagnosis, with women tend to be more prone CFS than men.

Some of these may be:

  • Underlying problems with the immune system, which can be caused by a number of things
  • Physical health problems
  • Vitamin and mineral imbalance
  • Early life trauma
  • Childhood accumulated trauma
  • Life trauma and traumatic events from preceding years – whatever that represents for you individually, be it emotional or physical. This type of on going stimulus tires the body physically and energy levels deplete
  • Life stress and “juggling too many balls”.  Type “A” people who tend to be achievers and have busy minds
  • Adrenal exhaustion or adrenal fatigue
  • A virus or infection of some kind – flu, bronchitis childhood
  • A reaction to vaccinations
  • Anaesthesia
  • Genetic predisposition – with an inherited tendency towards CFS/ME being more common in some families
  • Overuse of antibiotics and steroids – causing a compromised immune system.  This leads to the below problems
  • Stomach issues and a lack of being able to absorb and digest the goodness from your food, which further compromises the immune system
  • Candida and any other underlying yeast or parasite infections in the gut, which take hold and cause in themselves a myriad of health problems.
  • Hormonal imbalance, which is extremely common, tends to go undiagnosed by GP’s.  This can be caused by an oestrogen and progesterone imbalance (oestrogen dominance – low progesterone levels, or visa versa – peri-menopause and menopause), along with HPA (Hypothalamus, Pituitary, Adrenal) glandular problems of the endocrine system.  This imbalance robs the mitochondria (powerhouses that produce energy for your cells) of oxygen, causing a deficit in energy production and subsequent CFS.
  • Mercury or other heavy metal poisoning
  • Depression and Psychiatric problems – with some cases having been linked to mental exhaustion, candida and hormonal imbalance
