“Doctor, I just want it to stop! I want my life back! Please, I just want to be the person that I used to be.”
These are the words I hear all too often. Most chronic fatigue sufferers think they’ve tried everything.
But I can confidently tell you that you haven’t tried it all.
Chronic fatigue syndrome, or CFS, is a debilitating and complex disorder characterized by profound fatigue that is not improved by bed rest and that may be worsened by physical or mental activity. People with CFS most often function at a substantially lower level of activity than they were capable of before the onset of illness. In addition to these key defining characteristics, patients report various nonspecific symptoms, including weakness, muscle pain, impaired memory and/or mental concentration, insomnia, and post-exertional fatigue lasting more than 24 hours. In some cases, CFS can persist for years.
At the Naperville Institute For NeuroMetabolic Solutions, we see so many women and men who fit this profile of adrenal imbalance.
Your tired, Run down, mentally exhausted, unable to stay asleep or fall asleep and dependant on sugary snacks, caffeine or energy drinks.
Your adrenals are powerful endocrine glands that help your body react to stress while keeping those reactions in balance. They produce a range of hormones which protect us by releasing energy stores and sharpening our senses so we can immediately defend ourselves or escape an emergency or threat.
In its normal state, your body responds to stressors and quickly recovers to a state of healthy, energized calm. But if you are experiencing chronic or prolonged and ongoing stress, adrenal function can be disrupted, leading to symptoms of adrenal imbalance.
Your symptoms are your body’s alarm and way of asking for Help.
Are you giving your body what it needs to recover or are you just shutting off the alarm so you no longer here it?
Who Develops CFS
- People of every age, gender, ethnicity, and socioeconomic group can have CFS.
- CFS affects women at four times the rate of men.
- Research indicates that CFS is most common in people in their 40s and 50s.
- Although CFS is much less common in children than in adults, children can develop the illness, particularly during the teen years.

Functional Medicine goes way beyond simple “single nutrient replacement” style approaches used in most doctors offices today
In other words, this work is more involved than determining a lack of calcium (or whatever vitamin/mineral you consider).
We now think in terms of a “body systems” approach to evaluation and support. Examples include understanding how the immune system, hormones and digestion link together and influence one other or perhaps how the brain is affected by inflammation generated by food sensitivities.
The relationships are almost endless, which is why you need someone who understands how to put all the pieces together.
That is where we come in…
For a variety of reasons most blood work ordered today is often limited to a very basic number of tests.
This limitation is usually tied to both the doctor’s understanding and what your insurance company will cover. That is why having a chronic condition can be so frustrating. It seems like nobody is willing to go the extra mile and really help you.
Medicine is also disease oriented, not necessarily functionally oriented. Institutional medicine likes to break things up into compartments and often sees different functions of the body as isolated events. The problem is that isn’t how the body really works. Everything is inter connected like you see in the illustration above.
Functional Medicine is different. It seeks to understand the relationships between varies “systems” of the body, the interplay or dance (if you will) of your metabolic fingerprint.
Once your metabolic fingerprint is known and we understand where your metabolism is breaking down then a list of priorities can be established.
Specific plans for correcting or improving these metabolic faults are given along with timelines for correction.
We also go beyond standard testing. Consider our testing as “Out Of The Box” because we go past institutional medicines testing limitations by ordering comprehensive studies and matching those findings with your history, questionnaires and neurologic exam findings to determine the best course of treatment.
Once you’ve been following the prescribed care for some time, follow-up tests are performed to demonstrate your progress. Won’t it be nice to know how you are responding to the treatment?
Here’s the other issue…
You can fall within the reference range of “Laboratory Normal” and still be unhealthy! We use functional ranges (not just the laboratory ranges) to understand if your health is moving in an unhealthy direction.
