Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue are real diseases with real treatments.
Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia were both diseases that, until fairly recently, were often mistaken as depression, anxiety or even laziness. We know that the pain and fatigue you’re feeling are real, and we can help you feel more like your former self. Fibromyalgia affects multiple body-systems. This results in multiple symptoms that range from issues such as serious physical pain to mental and emotional pain like constant sadness. Because of the nature of this disease and how many nervous system functions are disrupted the more we study it the more we continue to learn about it. And the more learn about it, the better we can treat it.
Fibromyalgia is most often misdiagnosed as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. And while there are a lot of factors at work here, generally those with Fibromyalgia are suffering from severe pain and mild fatigue, whereas the situation is reversed for those with true Chronic Fatigue Syndrome where fatigue is the most severe complaint and pain a secondary one. However, because the symptoms and treatments are so similar we often treat for these conditions together.
You can recover, it just takes some time.
Even those who are correctly diagnosed and receive treatment may not recover as quickly as they could if certain symptoms are not addressed immediately. Lack of sleep and a negative mental attitude can drastically impair the body’s ability to heal. If you can’t envision recovery and getting your symptoms under control, healing becomes even more difficult.
Imagine yourself healthy, now let us help get you there.
As with all our treatments, exhaustive and thorough testing is key to treating all the underlying causes of your symptoms. We evaluate your hormonal and immune systems to check for accumulated toxins such as mercury, plastics, and pesticides as these are known to disrupt neurological, immune, or emotional functions.
Once we’ve clearly identified all the issues affecting your health our first goal is to get you sleeping soundly through the night — once you start sleeping your body can start healing. Depending on your specific case we may use a combination of western and naturopathic medicine to get all of your symptoms under control.
Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue patients can have a full life and conquer their condition! Within the first 6 months, our patients usually start feeling better, but it does take a serious long-term treatment plan to see a drastic improvement. We’ll figure out what’s really causing your health issues, why it’s continued, and help you get it under control.

"At this point, I have gone from a person that could barely walk across my apartment without getting out of breath,... to beginning to joyfully swim in the pool everyday. I am now able to shower everyday, go shopping for groceries, wash my car, decorate my apartment, cook my meals; well, things that most people take for granted.
I look forward to continuing improvement. I can’t recommend Dr. Vosloo highly enough!"
