Nutritional therapy: supporting recovery from ME, Fibromyalgia & CFS

Using nutritional therapy to support recovery from ME, Fibromyalgia or CFS helps to shorten the recovery journey.

Tackling your diet is a massive task when you are well.  When you have a chronic fatigue condition, it can seem like an impossible task.  Changing your eating habits takes effort and energy, two of the things that are in really short supply when you have ME, Fibromyalgia or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

The approach we use within The Chrysalis Effect is to work with qualified nutritional therapists who have specialised in chronic fatigue recovery. They understand all about the conditions and how nutritional therapy can help to support your recovery.  This includes appreciating and understanding how challenging it can be to make some of the changes that may be required.

Dealing with digestive tract issues

Not every client requires nutritional support, but many do because digestive tract issues are a common set of symptoms associated with chronic fatigue conditions.  Things like Irritable Bowel syndrome (IBS), food sensitivities, intolerances, allergies, constipation, diarrhoea, leaky gut syndrome – the list goes on, with many more symptoms besides these ones.  Many of those with ME, Fibromyalgia and CFS know that their symptoms are made worse by stressful situations and anxiety.

This is all part of the Dominoe Effect – follow this link here to read all about how stress triggers a series of reactions which can seriously impact our health over the longer term.

Too much information!

There are lots of different pieces of information and advice available about nutritional therapy via the internet and medical practitioners.  It can be really confusing to know what to do for the best.

  • If I try something and it doesn’t seem to be working, do I stick with it or abandon it?

  • How long will it take to work?

  • Does it need something else alongside it to make it more effective?

  • Is it all a big con anyway? !

Trying to work it out on your own can add to the anxiety and worry, which in turn makes you feel worse.

One of the benefits of working with a Chrysalis Effect nutritional therapist is that you tap into their experience.  They have experience of supporting recoverers back to health and understand the best way to help you.

How nutritional therapy can help you

The actual work done varies hugely as it is tailored to each client’s unique circumstances.  The starting point is always a thorough investigation at the initial consultation.  It is quite common for the focus to start on adrenal glands and thyroid gland function.  Improving the performance of these glands can have a significant impact on energy levels in a relatively short space of time.

Our nutritional therapists work with an holistic approach.  This means that they take into account everything that is going on for you, as well as considering areas such as mineral and vitamin function, heavy metal toxicity, parasitic activity etc. etc.  Their work is aimed at rebalancing your body to address the physical symptoms associated with chronic fatigue conditions, as well as improving energy level.

The Chrysalis Effect team approach

Chrysalis Effect team approach

Within The Chrysalis Effect, practitioners work as a team.  We understand that one single practitioner is unlikely to have all of the tools required to help you get your life back.  Chronic fatigue conditions are as complicated and diverse as the people who live with them.  So we have a diverse team of specialists who bring different skill sets.  This means that we are able to cross refer you to the specialist you need.

But we don’t just push you around from one practitioner to another.  You have a lead practitioner who delivers the majority of your recovery programme as well as co-ordinating any referrals and progress reviews.  You are in safe hands the whole way!

The approach cuts out a lot of the worry and guesswork, helping to shortcut your journey back to health.
