Chronic fatigue is one of the most common causes for patients to seek healthcare interventions. The persistence of low-grade infections, repeated exposures to environmental toxins, and dietary errors can all contribute to sub-optimal energy production on a cellular level. In this course, Dr. Van Benschoten goes over environmental toxins (petrochemicals, pesticides, heavy metals), autoimmunity, and mitochondrial functioning. Important lifestyle modifications are discussed, encompassing diet and nutrition, work and travel, and sleep and activity levels. Relevant case studies are included.

Upon completion of this course, practitioners will:

  • Identify common syndromes that are related to Chronic Fatigue, and their causative agents, including bacterial, viral, fungal infections, and environmental chemical exposure.
  • Understand the relation of CFIDS to various pathogens and their effects on mitochondrial function, ATP production, and immunity
  • Be able to prescribe Chinese herbal medicines that have antimicrobial, immune regulating, and mitochondrial protective actions
