What is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?

Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a condition that causes extreme fatigue that does not improve with rest. The fatigue may worsen with physical or mental activity, and it can significantly interfere with a person's ability to function. CFS is also known as myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS). While the cause of CFS is unknown, there are several theories, including viral infections, immune system dysfunction, and hormonal imbalances. There is no cure for CFS, but treatments can help to manage the symptoms. These include making lifestyle changes, energy management and managing stress levels. Some people also find relief with alternative therapies, such as acupuncture and massage. If you think you may have CFS, it is important to see a doctor for diagnosis and treatment.

What are Bach Flower Remedies and how can they help chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS)?

Bach flower remedies are a type of natural treatment that are derived from flowers. They are used to treat a variety of conditions, primarily emotional states such as anxiety, stress and depression but they can also help with physical exhaustion and chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). Bach flower remedies are based on the principle that imbalances in the body's energy can be corrected by using specific flowers which help to rebalance the body's energy, specifically our emotions. There are 38 different Bach flower remedies, each of which is associated with a different emotional state. 

Dr Bach created the flower remedy system in the 1930s after working as a physician and homeopath when he noticed that patients suffering the same physical illness also had the same emotional state. He learned that treating the emotional issues also helped to treat the patient's physical illness.

How Olive flower remedy helps treat chronic fatigue syndrome

As mentioned above there are 38 different flower remedies, each relating to a different emotional state. For example, Mimulus is for anxieties around something specific e.g. health, money... Impatiens is for people who are impatient and want everything done quickly or they get irritable... Gorse is for people who feel they've lost hope and have nowhere else to turn. Any of these three flower remedies may be helpful for CFS/ME, however the primary flower remedy CFS sufferers should consider for CFS treatment is Olive.

Olive is the Bach flower remedy for physical fatigue where the body, mind and spirit are utterly exhausted, often after a period of great strain for example after illness or if suffering post viral fatigue or Long Covid. You may feel like you've reached last straw you have zero reserve energy and everything is an effort. Olive can help you to feel restored and energised.

Lucy founded Mindful Remedies having suffered from Long Covid. She read about using Olive to treat CFS on a CFS/ME forum. Having used this remedy for two days her fatigue finally cleared, having suffered for over a year with debilitating fatigue which was impacting her ability to work and look after her two young children. She trained to become a practitioner and set up this company to help others through the flower remedies, as they've helped her.

Review from Ellie - CFS sufferer and client

"Mindful Remedies have been genuinely transformative for me. I struggle a lot with mental health and well-being, and also have multiple chronic illnesses, including ME which I’ve had for over 10 years. From the first consultation with Lucy I felt empowered, heard and hopeful and it did not disappoint. I’ve been taking the remedies four times a day for a few months now and there’s a tangible improvement in my confidence, self-esteem, resilience and- most importantly for me- a reduction in the fatigue that has been disabling me for more than a decade. I can’t recommend enough giving it a go!"
