Chronic fatigue can, again, be caused by many factors. Improper lifestyle habits, overwork, inadequate exercise, emotional stress are often major factors. Unresolved pathogens can burden the immune system and cause lethargy, as in the case of Epstein-Barre… Acupuncture can support the body’s immune system and help strengthen organs that have become weakened or stagnant. It can reduce nervous tension and restore function. Of course it is advised that patients suffering from unexplained fatigue also consult with their physician and get a Western diagnosis in addition to seeking acupuncture treatment.
