Although the exact culprit is not yet known, chronic fatigue syndrome may be caused by a combination of hormonal imbalance, weakened immune system and viral infections.
Here are the main symptoms of the condition:
- Sudden muscle pain;
- Joint pain;
- Enlarged lymph nodes in the neck and armpits;
- Loss of memory and focus;
Meridian lines are energy pathways in the body that host the Qi energy according to traditional Chinese medicine. These lines span the whole body and are parallel to specific acupuncture points. The Academy of Classical Oriental Sciences say that the lines map the energetic distribution network in the body and can help us understand how basic substances move throughout the body. As they are based on the energetic distribution of network in the body, it’s no wonder that people have turned towards this ancient Chinese method to relieve chronic fatigue and its symptoms.
Fatigue and the triple warmer
Traditional Chinese Medicine links one of these energy lines behind the ear with chronic fatigue syndrome and depression. There’s not a single physical organ connected to the Triple Warmer meridian – this energy line is connected to the whole body and maintains the relationship between the hormonal glands and the hormonal distribution system.
The Triple Warmer got its name from the body’s heating system that connects the mind, body and spirit. The line controls the heat and water channels throughout the body, and if over-energized, it can leak energy into the immune system and attack the body, resulting in chronic fatigue syndrome.
Professional help is required to calm down the Triple Warmer, but you should know that it can be relaxed from the comfort of your home. Use the following techniques to sedate the Triple Warmer meridian whenever you’re tired without a reason:
Hold your left fingers under the left knee with your right fingers above the left elbow and feel the pulse. Hold the points until both pulses synchronize – if you still can’t feel the pulse, just hold on for a bit more. Repeat the pose on the opposite side of the body.
Hold your left fingers on the indent on the outside of the left small toe while holding the right fingers between the knuckles on your left hand little and ring finger. Hold until the pulses synchronize, then repeat the process on the other hand.
Stimulating these meridians will treat chronic fatigue, but you also need to find the underlying source in order to completely get rid of the condition.
