Trig­ger Point

CLEO (Malaysia) - - BODY & SOUL -

Like most people with the con­di­tion, Laura traces it back to a virus she never re­cov­ered from. “I got glan­du­lar fever at 15, which was mis­di­ag­nosed as ton­sil­li­tis. I was put on lots of dif­fer­ent an­tibi­otics, which re­ally brought my im­mune sys­tem down.” Dr Phillips says this in­abil­ity to re­cover sends the im­mune sys­tem into over­drive, caus­ing the body to ex­ert it­self in ‘fight’ mode. If you are not re­cov­er­ing from a vi­ral ill­ness, it’s es­sen­tial to in­ves­ti­gate chronic fa­tigue syn­drome.
