Many patients are stuck in a vicious cycle of chronic fatigue and pain

A key factor in this vicious cycle is inefficiency of the bioenergetic pathways

As a healthcare professional, you probably have noticed the two most common patient complaints are fatigue and pain. Many patients have been diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome or fibromyalgia and have gone from practitioner to practitioner.

Significant interrelationships exist between chronic fatigue and chronic pain syndromes, turning into vicious cycles involving the neurological, endocrine, and immune pathways.

These conditions can’t be treated by any single intervention. Instead, they require looking at the whole picture, understanding the interrelationships, and working your way through them with your patient.

Factors that can cause chronic fatigue and pain include:

  • Underlying autoimmune patterns
  • Lipopolysaccharides being released by the gut causing chronic inflammation
  • Neurons close to threshold
  • Hypoxia or poor blood flow
  • Neurogenic inflammation
  • Autonomic dysfunctional dysautonomia
  • Neuro-psychogenic issues
  • Metabolic factors such as blood sugar imbalances

To know what is causing your patient’s chronic fatigue and pain, it’s important to understand the interrelationships between neurology, endocrinology, immunology, and bioenergetic pathways.

You need to work step by step through the process of differentially diagnosing the underlying mechanisms of chronic fatigue and pain and then developing clinical strategies specific to those mechanisms.

Mechanisms you will learn to treat include:

  • Factors affecting mitochondrial function
  • Negative plasticity
  • Negative plasticity
  • Neuroinflammation
  • Neurological factors such as dysautonomia and psychogenic inflammation
  • Blood sugar imbalances
  • Endotoxemia and gut-related imbalances
  • …and more.

Did you know chronic fatigue and pain can be red flags for the potential development of a neurodegenerative disorder?

When a patient has been suffering from chronic fatigue and pain issues for many years, the cellular mechanisms involved in the neurodegenerative process are all in place.

When you see patients who have these conditions you have to look for early signs of neurodegeneration.

If you catch it in time, you have an opportunity to make a big difference in their outcome as they start to age in the next 10 to 20 years.

These conditions can’t be treated by any single intervention.

They require looking at the whole picture of interrelated systems and working your way through them looking for areas of dysfunction.

In this course, we’re going to go through all the different mechanisms involved in chronic pain and fatigue syndromes that are so common in the healthcare system today.

I’m going to share with you all the major research of how these mechanisms work and the underlying pathophysiologies.

Then I’m going to teach you a step-by-step clinical approach:

  • How to look at the medical history
  • How to look at lab tests
  • How to look at examination findings
  • How to figure out the underlying mechanisms
  • How to develop a treatment protocol
  • An exploration of some clinical cases

Do you understand these mechanisms of ongoing fatigue and pain syndromes?

  • Inflammation
  • Immune dysregulation
  • Neurological deficits
  • Abnormal neurological plasticity

Multiple factors are involved in chronic fatigue and pain syndromes

The term bioenergetic refers to how we use the foods we eat to make energy in mitochondrial ATP production.

An inability to use these energy pathways efficiently can lead to significant imbalances.

This in turn leads to neurons that are close to threshold and increased depolarization of nociceptors.

As a result, they have greater pain perception. Their brains fatigue easily. Their muscle mitochondria becomes impaired.

They complain of significant muscle aches and they get worn out easily. They don’t want to do anything because it’s too tiring. And they usually have other conditions such as depression.

These patients don’t have a disease but they have multiple chronic health issues.

They have a hard time getting better.

Yet when they walk into a conventional model, they are prescribed one medication after the next, ending up in polypharmacy model—which confuses the picture with multiple side effects.

Yet the underlying mechanisms of neuroendocrine immune dysfunction and imbalances in their bioenergetic pathways are never addressed.

As a result, they go years, decades, or even a lifetime never breaking out of this vicious cycle.

Learn the roles of the brain, the immune system, and the endocrine system in chronic fatigue and pain issues

It is critical you have a step-by-step approach to developing treatment applications for patients with diverse fatigue and pain syndromes … which many people label as chronic fatigue or fibromyalgia.

You must master the underlying mechanisms of neuroendocrine immune dysfunction and imbalances that impact the bioenergetic pathways used to make ATP.

To best help your patients, you need to understand the underlying mechanisms, which areas of the brain are most affected, and how to treat the entire web.

Fatigue and pain are often associated with inefficiency in the body’s ability to produce ATP or energy.

When the body loses the ability to make ATP, this causes either brain-based fatigue, muscle fatigue, or both.

As a result, patients can’t think, focus, or concentrate for very long periods of time. They are easily exhausted if they push their brains too much.

Or they have achy muscles and any kind of movement or exercise exhausts and fatigues them. They don’t have the same level of endurance they once did.

Pain patterns usually accompany these patterns of fatigue—whether it’s sporadic general pain, unrelenting chronic pain, or an old injury they can never recover from.

When you see these patterns, the ultimate issue is the body may not have healthy mitochondrial function.

There is much more to mitochondrial function than taking things like CoQ10.

Instead, it’s a complex neuroendocrine immune phenomenon impacting multiple pathways that produce energy.

What is fatigue and how do you work it up?

One of the most common symptoms patients complain about is fatigue. When you look at fatigue, you have to ask, what is it and how do you work it up?

When we look at the physiological mechanisms of ATP production, it starts with what happens when we eat food, whether it’s protein, fats, or carbohydrates, and all the steps that lead to mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation.

Respiratory issues, anemias, thyroid dysfunction, blood sugar stability, dysautonomia, neuroinflammation or degeneration, oxidative stress, and other factors impact mitochondrial biogenesis.

Many practitioners have a hard time helping their patients with fatigue because they don’t understand the big multi-variable picture.

They’re missing steps in their workup that prevent them from figuring out what’s really going on.

In the Kharrazian Institute Chronic Fatigue and Pain Syndrome’s Clinical Strategy and Treatment Applications, I’m going to teach you all the steps involved in evaluation chronic pain and fatigue.

You will learn how to not overlook any of the steps involved in working up a chronic fatigue and pain patient.

You will know exactly what to do and how to develop a protocol customized for each patient.

Neuroplasticity: A frequently overlooked factor in chronic pain

Did you know that chronic pain syndrome may be due to a neurological phenomenon called negative plasticity? Plasticity refers to neurons connecting together.

You can have positive plasticity or negative plasticity.

When you activate neurological pathways over and over again to learn a favorable new task that’s positive plasticity.

But if you develop pathways that are not healthy, that’s negative plasticity.

An example of negative plasticity is PTSD. A stressful event activates the brain centers for a stress response, causing anxiety, nervousness, and heart palpitations.

Over time, that system becomes so efficient that a very trivial stimuli triggers the stress response, causing chronic anxiety after a traumatic event.

Another example of negative plasticity is when people feel pain or burning in amputated limbs. Pathways in the brain that perceive pain in those regions of the body are still active despite the missing limb.

This also applies to chronic pain — negative plasticity in the brain perpetuates pain from an injury even though the injury isn’t happening at the pain fibers.

Learn to identify the source of chronic fatigue and pain – it is different for each patient

Maybe your patient has had an injury in the past that’s never really healed—such as a herniated disc or a torn rotator cuff, and they’ve never been the same since. They now have a debilitating pattern of pain impacting their quality of life.

Or they have just a general pain syndrome affecting their entire body. Their whole body aches for no apparent reason.

There is usually more than one variable involved in chronic pain and fatigue syndromes

Patients with complex pain and fatigue syndromes usually have more than one variable involved. Theirs is a multi-variate model, which explains why no one seems to be able to help them.

Variables include underlying autoimmunity, leaky gut, endotoxemia, neuroinflammation, neurons close to threshold, systemic inflammation, dysautonomia, blood sugar and metabolic imbalances, poor antioxidant status, limbic overactivation, negative plasticity, and so on.

How do you know which ones apply to your patient?

By knowing how all of these mechanisms work, you can develop clinical strategies and treatments to personalize a plan for each patient to unwind the vicious cycles of chronic pain and fatigue.

Dr. Kharrazian is a leading expert in diagnosing and treating chronic fatigue and pain

Datis Kharrazian, PhD, DHSc, DC, MS, MMSc, FACN, is a Harvard Medical School trained researcher, clinical research scientist, academic professor, and a functional medicine health care provider. Dr. Kharrazian earned a Master of Medical Science degree (MMSc) in Clinical Investigation from Harvard Medical School, and is a member of the Harvard Medical Alumni Association and the American Association of Immunologists.

Today, Dr. Kharrazian’s clinical models of functional medicine are used by several academic institutions, and thousands of health care clinics and practices providers throughout the world.

He maintains a private practice near San Diego, California, and consults with patients from all over the world who are seeking non-pharmaceutical alternatives. His practice is focused on developing a personalized medical approach using diet, nutrition, and lifestyle approaches.

After decades of analyzing thousands of studies and working with patients in the United States and Europe, Dr. Kharrazian developed never-taught-before clinical strategies to successfully manage chronic fatigue and pain.

Is the Kharrazian Institute Chronic Fatigue and Pain Syndromes course right for you?

The Kharrazian Institute cognitive decline and dementia course is not for everyone. See if the course features below are right for you:

  • Practitioners who want to perform in-depth evaluations to understand the underlying mechanisms of their patients’ chronic pain and fatigue
  • Health care providers looking to evolve their health treatment plans to better help more clinically complex patients
  • Providers willing to expand brain health care to include autoimmune mechanisms, gut issues, microbiome health, blood sugar imbalances, neurological, and other related issues
  • Practitioners who have single-supplement or -medication approaches to pain and fatigue
  • Practitioners looking for a one-size-fits-all diet and supplement protocol
  • Providers who don’t have the time or energy to master the underlying complexities of pain and fatigue cases
  • Practitioners who prefer not to work with patients whose pain and fatigue syndromes are intertwined with other complex chronic conditions
  • Providers not interested in addressing autoimmune, gastrointestinal, immune, metabolic, antioxidant, neurological, or blood sugar health

Testimonials about the Kharrazian Institute courses

– Carri

The very first course I attended with Dr. Kharrazian was his Functional Endocrinology course back in 2003 and boy did that ever rock my world. His Kharrazian Institute Neuroinflammation course just did the same thing… but on a MUCH larger scale. It’s a total game changer. Paradigm shifting. I’m 20+ years in practice and I’ve noticed patients are getting so much harder to treat, with much more complex and chronic issues, and now I have a much better understanding why and what to do about it! Dr. K — thank you for putting this revolutionary information together!

– Christopher

I’ve practiced 23 years and one of my biggest pet peeves was “shooting blind.” By this I mean, “It’s been determined by years of clinical use that such and such a remedy is good for the treatment of X.” I always felt inadequate, exposed, and unsure of the variables. I can’t express in words the degree of appreciation I have for your dedication to determining mechanisms, researching studies, and most importantly breaking down this disparate information into readily accessible and mostly easy to understand, maps of malfunctioning physiology. I have found it invaluable. As you repeatedly stressed at your Functional Neurology Seminars program in the past, it’s sloppy clinical work to proceed with treatment until a clear picture of where the dominos fell first is figured out, so the appropriate treatment is arrived at. A million thanks to a fabulous contributor.

– Steven

This seminar was more eye opening about why some of these chronic failures we’ve all had as practitioners need more of a neuro-metabolic approach and to give yourself and the patient time and give realistic expectations so we both don’t get burned out or disappointed. That was huge for me. Thanks Dr. Kharrazian.

– Diego

This has been a freaking gorgeous course. Looking forward to the digestive health course in September.

– Xavier

What a blessing to have been able to follow that neuroinflammation course. Full of scientific data but lots of clinical applications that are very helpful for practitioners. I’m very happy to be able to follow that course since nothing is available like this in France. This should be taught in med school. Thank you Dr. Datis Kharrazian!

– Judy

What a brilliant lecture and very clinical. Hammering home the points and reviewing while we went along really prepared me for the exam. So practical and I will be attending the next two in the series. Very well done. Really can’t say enough good things today. Thanks to everyone involved to pull it off and make livestream possible for me here in Canada.

– Greg

Dr. Kharrazian has literally given me hope and if I could use one word to describe my weekend it would be “PROFOUND”. I am truly grateful for you!!!

– Lapis

Thanks for the excellent, clinically translatable course; with much appreciation for the lucid organization and abundant supportive documents.
