Treatment: Hyperbaric Therapy in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
The aim of this study was to determine if hyperbaric oxygen treatment (HBOT) could be used as adjunctive therapy and if HBOT could increase the quality of life in such a way that the functional status would improve in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) patients with an infection. A randomized, controlled trial was conducted on 15 Mycoplasma sp. infected CFS patients and 14 CFS patients with no evidence of a Mycoplasma infection.
Treating Fibromyalgia and the Mind-Body-Spirit Connection
In this chat transcript, Edwin Season, M.D., explains, “Fibromyalgia is considered to be a functional illness, so the symptoms are real and not imagined, and the medical tests are normal. Most patients and doctors view and understand fibromyalgia and related functional illnesses through what we call a bio-medical model, that fails to explain illness where there is no evidence of disease.” Read more about his and William B. Salt II, M.D.’s approach to treating FM through a mind-body-spirit approach.
Eunice Beck, RN, on Dealing with CFS & FM and the Demands of Emotions
Coping Corner columnist Eunice Beck, RN, writes, “A family situation which demands our attention and energy, be it an illness, a child’s needs, a move, or any one of a number of possibilities, is especially difficult for us. First, there are the physical demands. Whatever amount of energy is required of us, it is certain to put us in an energy deficit situation.”
