HELP: I’ve been diagnosed with post-viral fatigue (originaly written for and published by Natural Health Magazine)

For weeks I’ve suffered extreme tiredness, dizziness and nausea. How can I feel better again?

Andrea Steinlechner, a top acupuncturist and TCM specialist answers:

From your question it sounds like you have suffered an external (viral) invasion. According to traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) this is particulary common at the change of seasons. As people find it difficult to adapt.

In my practice, U see the body and mind as a whole., and I pay attention to all signs and symptoms before offering a treatment plan. Most health practitioners will agree that the best cure for a viral infection is to drink plenty of water and rest. Eating nourishing foods, like chicken broth, can be just that extra pick-me-up you need. I would also recommend eating garlic, ginger and onions which are great for expelling pathogens to combat your infection. Similarly, a course of acupuncture can boost your immune system, helping clear the viral infection and lethargy, and improving your wellbeing.

This viral infection could be a result of an underlying pathology and poor adjustment to seasonal changes which is why a course of acupuncture should help to speed up your recovery and prevent it from reoccurring in the future.
