Natural Ways to Overcome The Symptoms Of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Are you feeling tired all the time, without due cause? Do you find that even after sleep you wake in the morning still feeling exhausted?

If this has been going on for a month or so you need to check into whether or not you may have been fighting Chronic Fatigue Syndrome CFS.

Fatigue is a condition of exhaustion and lack of energy caused by several factors such as viral infection, overexertion and lack of sleep.

As fatigue is a normal condition, most people have experienced fatigue at least once in their lifetimes.

The feeling of exhaustion is usually relieved after the person gets some rest.

But if a person suffers from fatigue for extended periods of time, usually more than 6 months, he/she may be suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome.

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a condition of extreme and persistent fatigue that lasts for six months and more.

It usually comes with several other symptoms such as muscle pain, aches in the joints, sore throat, and lack of energy.

Most people with chronic fatigue syndrome or CFS usually suffer from a more serious disorder like fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis and chronic fatigue immunodeficiency syndrome.

The exact cause of chronic fatigue syndrome is hard to determine, but it is widely believed that there are three factors that trigger this debilitating disorder.

The Causes of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

• Viral or bacterial infection – Exposure to viruses and bacteria can cause chronic fatigue syndrome.

The symptoms of fatigue usually disappear when the infection is successfully treated.

• Overexertion – Rigorous physical activities that go beyond what the body can take results to extreme exhaustion.

Athletes who are prone to over training are susceptible to this.

• Depression – Some doctors believe there is a link between chronic fatigue syndrome and stress or anxiety.

People who suffer from depression are also usually afflicted with chronic fatigue syndrome.

• Dehydration – Depriving the body of its daily water requirements has long-term side effects such as chronic fatigue.

• Eating disorders – Inadequate supply of vitamins and minerals in the body causes chronic fatigue since the body lacks the proper nutrition it needs to perform properly.

Now that you know what triggers chronic fatigue syndrome, the following remedies should help you overcome the symptoms of CFS.

• Have a balanced, healthy diet – Increase your intake of healthy food such as fruits and vegetables.

These provide your body with vitamins and minerals to keep your immune system strong.

Also increase your consumption of garlic and onion, which are known to boost the immune system.

Eating more quality protein that is rich in omega 3, 6 and 9 (such as fish, chicken, soy products) also helps maintain the body healthy.

Avoid food high in fat and sugar content, as they will make you prone to feeling lethargic and sluggish.

Never skip breakfast and instead of having three full meals per day, go for more frequent meals but with smaller portions to keep your body's metabolism going.

• Get up and active – People afflicted with chronic fatigue syndrome don't have to rest and sleep all the time.

Regular gentle exercise is advised to help combat the lethargy and lack of energy.

• De-stress – Doctors have found out that there is a strong connection between stress/anxiety and the development of chronic fatigue syndrome.

To avoid having chronic fatigue, it is advised to manage stress and bring stress levels down.

Learning to deal with stress will not only help you combat chronic fatigue, it will also help you improve your relationships, boost your health and enhance your general outlook on life.

This is just a quick overview covering a few aspects of CFS. If you are wondering if this is the condition you are fighting, you need to research fully the condition and the natural remedied to CFS that are working for other people and may work well for you too.
