Chronic fatigue—a condition defined as persistent fatigue that cannot be alleviated by rest—affects nearly 2.5 million Americans. For those folks, waning energy levels and low vitality can make every day a struggle.
As a medical doctor who specializes in fatigue, I see it manifest in a variety of ways. I also know that some interventions work for certain patients but not for others, and this can make treatments difficult. When they first visit my office, many patients have seen numerous practitioners (without any success) and many are convinced that they must simply learn to live with their fatigue.
