Welcome to Chronic Fatigue
Syndrome Infocenter on Holisticonline.com!
Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) - also known as chronic fatigue and immune dysfunction syndrome (CFIDS), chronic Epstein-Barr virus (CEBV), and myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) and by other names -
is a mysterious infectious illness which afflicts an estimated 3 million Americans and 90 million people worldwide. It primarily strikes young urban professionals, with Caucasian women under age 45 accounting for 80 percent of
cases. However, anyone, even a child, is susceptible.
The cause is not known, but stress may affect the immune system, leaving it susceptible to an autoimmune disorder. While conventional medicine has acknowledged only limited results in treating CFS, alternative physicians are proving that the illness can be successfully treated by taking a
multi-disciplined approach specific to the needs of each individual patient.
