Episode summary

Amy Pamment discusses confusing, elusive chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) or myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) – often referred to as CFS/ME. This episode tries to get to grips with what CFS/ME actually is: an umbrella term for conditions that involve a multitude of fatigue-related symptoms, that may have a plethora of different possible causes. Amy explains why she thinks doctors often struggle to treat people with CFS, and the tools which can enable nutritional therapy practitioners to succeed in those situations. She also shares her own experiences with CFS, demonstrating from personal experience how complicated the causes can be – and the potential power of nutritional interventions.
