Due to this fact CFS is diagnosed by an evaluation of common symptoms including: unexplained fatigue, pain and tenderness in muscles and joints, headaches, poor concentration, tender lymph nodes in neck or armpits and unrefreshed sleep (insomnia). Each individual varies with these symptoms, but the most common symptoms are fatigue, mental fog (poor concentration & memory) and insomnia.

Alternate Therapeutics approaches CFS in the effort to minimise these symptoms bettering quality of life.

Chronic venous ulcers of the lower leg usually results from chronic venous insufficiency of the lower extremities. This may be from variable aetiologies, for example: obesity, venous valve incompetence or poor systemic circulation. Regardless the aetiology, this condition is persistent, recurring and difficult to cure. Unfortunately prolonged ulceration may lead to the development of malignancy.

Alternate Therapeutics approaches chronic venous ulcers of the lower leg internally and externally. Internal herbal medicine is administered to improve venous circulation whilst external herbal remedies are used to prevent the progression of diameter and depth by helping the skin to proliferate quicker.
