Feeling tired without causes, acupuncture can help

Chronic fatigue is a widespread symptom, with a prevalence of approximately 10% to 15% in the general population worldwide. Chronic fatigue presents as an overall lack of systemic energy that last for a few months and cannot be released by rest, affecting daily normal activities. It impairs the normal quality of life dramatically. Unexplained chronic fatigue is categorized into idiopathic chronic fatigue (ICF) and chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). Idiopathic chronic fatigue (ICF) is sustained fatigue with unknown underlying pathologies. A prevalence of ICF is 10 times higher than that of CFS in the general population. Research has shown that older adults with ICF had reduced overall mitochondrial content which is energy producing device and its signalling function in the muscle compared to their age-matched group without ICF. Another study has shown significant alterations of oxidative parameters as well as antioxidant parameters in patients with ICF which indicates that oxidative stress is related to ICF.

Acupuncture can help with ICF. A research studied the effect of acupuncture on chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and idiopathic chronic fatigue (ICF). The result has shown that 4 weeks in addition to usual care may help improve fatigue in CFS and ICF patients.
