Best Treatment for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Best Treatment for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Do you want to know how to choose the Best Treatment for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?

First, let’s look at CFS in a focused but general Overview.

Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a complicated disorder characterized by extreme fatigue that can’t be explained by any underlying medical condition. The fatigue may worsen with physical or mental activity but doesn’t improve with rest.

This condition is also known as systemic exertion intolerance disease (SEID) or myalgia encephalomyelitis (ME). Sometimes it’s abbreviated as ME/CFS.

The cause of chronic fatigue syndrome is unknown, although there are many theories — ranging from viral infections to psychological stress. Some experts believe chronic fatigue syndrome might be triggered by a combination of factors.

There’s no single test to confirm a diagnosis of chronic fatigue syndrome. You may need a variety of medical tests to rule out other health problems that have similar symptoms. Treatment for chronic fatigue syndrome focuses on symptom relief.

Given these sobering facts, one might conclude that there is little that can be done for those who are living with CFS. That is not true.

There are many things that you can do to improve your body condition and the pain and suffering that is the very fabric of CFS.

Signs and Symptoms may include:

  • Fatigue
  • Loss of memory or concentration
  • Sore throat
  • Enlarged lymph nodes in your neck or armpits
  • Unexplained muscle or joint pain
  • Headaches
  • Unrefreshing sleep
  • Extreme exhaustion lasting more than 24 hours after physical or mental exercise

It’s important to note that fatigue can be a symptom of many illnesses, such as infections or psychological disorders. In general, see your doctor if you have persistent or excessive fatigue.

How to Diagnose Chronic Fatigue Syndrome:

There’s no single test to confirm a diagnosis of chronic fatigue syndrome. Because the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome can mimic so many other health problems, you may need patience while waiting for a diagnosis.

Your doctor must rule out several other illnesses before diagnosing chronic fatigue syndrome. These may include:

Sleep disorders.

Chronic fatigue can be caused by sleep disorders. A sleep study can determine if your rest is being disturbed by disorders such as obstructive sleep apnea, restless legs syndrome or insomnia.

Medical problems.

Fatigue is a common symptom in several medical conditions, such as anemia, diabetes and underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism). Lab tests can check your blood for evidence of some of the top suspects.

Heart and lung impairments.

Problems with your heart or lungs can make you feel more fatigued. An exercise stress test can assess your heart and lung function.

Mental health issues.

Fatigue is also a symptom of a variety of mental health problems, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. A counselor can help determine if one of these problems is causing your fatigue.

The Most Common Potential Triggers Associated with CFS:

People who have chronic fatigue syndrome appear to be hypersensitive to even normal amounts of exercise and activity.

Why this occurs in some people and not others are still unknown. Some people may be born with a predisposition for the disorder, which is then triggered by a combination of factors. Potential triggers include:

Viral infections.

Because some people develop chronic fatigue syndrome after having a viral infection, researchers question whether some viruses might trigger the disorder. Suspicious viruses include Epstein-Barr virus, human herpes virus 6 and mouse leukemia viruses. No conclusive link has yet been found.

Immune system problems.

The immune systems of people who have chronic fatigue syndrome appear to be impaired slightly, but it’s unclear if this impairment is enough to cause the disorder

Hormonal imbalances.

People who have chronic fatigue syndrome also sometimes experience abnormal blood levels of hormones produced in the hypothalamus, pituitary glands or adrenal glands. But the significance of these abnormalities is still unknown.

Risk factors

Factors that may increase your risk of chronic fatigue syndrome include:

Age.

Chronic fatigue syndrome can occur at any age, but it most commonly affects people in their 40s and 50s.

Sex.

Women are diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome much more often than men, but it may be that women are simply more likely to report their symptoms to a doctor.

Stress.

Difficulty managing stress may contribute to the development of chronic fatigue syndrome.

The Influence of Personality and Person History on understanding the Risk associated with CFS:

The key to understanding why you may get ill, is realizing that there is no one factor alone that causes us to get CFS. It is the combination of a number of these predisposing factors that results in a state of burnout in the body.

Toxins, bacteria and other pathogens can grow out of control in a gut that is filled daily with foods and liquids that feed the harmful bacteria.

This, in turn, reduces the number of healthy bacteria that assist your optimum gut function.

Here’s How CFS Affects Many of our Body Systems:

Our body is made up of several different systems and it is widely accepted that CFS does have a destructive impact on these systems.

Paradoxically, the health and efficiency of your various systems will affect the symptoms of CFS. This is why it becomes critical to make changes in your diet and lifestyle. These changes will ensure that weakened systems are not the root cause of the problems.

Diet changes, healthy blood pressure, exercise and Doctor supervised overhauls of your body systems will assure that your CFS symptoms are not caused by poorly functioning body systems.

The human body is comprised of 11 systems: integumentary (skin), muscular, skeletal, nervous, circulatory, lymphatic/immune, respiratory, endocrine, urinary/excretory, reproductive and digestive.

The overall approach is the idea that all systems are inextricably linked and that CFS conditions may affect multiple systems.

For example, the maladaptive stress response, which originates in the nervous system, can affect our endocrine system by generating excess cortisol and adrenaline. This can lead to poor absorption in our digestive system and can result in our immune system being oversensitive (food intolerances and chemical sensitivities).

Some examples of how individual systems can be affected are:

Nervous System:

In CFS, we may find that the nervous system is in a state of over-stimulation (this is referred to as maladaptive stress response) which can result in a feeling of being “tired and wired” and that despite being exhausted, we can’t fully rest.

Digestive System:

Many of those with CFS can report digestive symptoms. When our digestion is not working effectively, it can have a substantial effect on energy creation, brain fog/concentration and many other bodily systems.

Lymphatic and Immune System:

Those with CFS report a range of immune related issues, ranging from hyper sensitivities/intolerances to foods and chemicals, to a weakened immune system and seems to be “catching everything that goes around.”

Endocrine System:

A sub-group of those with CFS/ME can experience hypo-thyroidism and suboptimal adrenal function is a common result of ongoing stress (either leading up to getting ill, or as a consequence of) leading to poor absorption in our digestive system, and can result in our immune system being overly sensitive (food intolerances and chemical sensitivities).

Here Are Some Strategies to Help You Get Better:

Keep a Food Journal. Buy a Notebook (8 ½ X 11) and label each page with the day and date.

Record on the Date Page, what you ate during the day and the time of day that you ate it Also record how you FEEL (and when), periodically throughout the day. The “Day” includes all that day and evening.

Record what you ate and how much; what you drank (water and any other drinks (coffee, tea etc.) and how much you consumed.

This Record, over a 30-day period, will give you clues as to which foods or drinks that you are eating and drinking, that may be affecting you, negatively.

Take your 30-Day Journal to a Naturopath and enlist his or her help to analyze the relationship between what you are eating and drinking and how it’s making you feel, both negatively and positively.

If the Naturopath discovers that your diet has generally compromised your digestive system, then Job #1 may be an Intestinal Cleanse, to help reduce the number of bad bacteria in your gut.

Then a program to keep your gut healthy can be started. Structured Silver Water and Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar are aids that will help to keep the gut free of bad bacteria.

The more bad bacteria in the gut, the more you will crave the “junk food” and “junk snacks” that the bad bacteria in your gut thrive on.

When you sit in front of a healthy and tasty fresh salad, you can almost hear the bad bacteria screaming, “Oh NO…not that stuff again!”

During the cleanse, you must restrict your diet to healthy foods. After the cleanse, you simply continue to eat wisely. Remember, this is not some “fad diet” but a positive, life-giving change that will add years to your life.

You must realize the Truth. Your wellness and overall level of having a healthy feeling is dependent on highly functioning body systems, which cannot perform effectively on a poor diet.

People with CFS often feel that they have no control over their physical and mental condition.

Time for a “News Flash”

You are the one who decides and controls what you choose to put in your mouth and into your stomach. Decide today, to take back control of making these life-giving decisions.

It’s Important to Stay Hydrated:

All body systems require you to drink lots of water to function properly. Decide to drink those 8 – 10 glasses of water every day. Lack of Hydration in and of itself is a contributing factor to the feeling of fatigue.

It’s Time to Listen to Your Body:

Try very hard to make the connections between certain foods, including beverages, and how it makes you feel.

As you introduce new foods, healthier foods, slowly incorporate them in your daily diet and make an evaluation based on how you now feel.

Make it Impossible to be Wrong about Your Choice of Foods:

Go through your fridge and cupboards and throw out the Junky and Snacky foods as well as the processed foods. Just because you bought it, doesn’t mean you have to eat it. Think of it as the small price you’re paying to change to a healthier YOU.

Decide today to choose brown rice over white rice. Eliminate saturated fats (and that includes those donuts you like with your coffee.) Another source of saturated fats is processed meats, poultry, all dairy products and most desserts, including pies.

You’ll also find partially hydrogenated oils in many processed foods. These oils are used to improve the taste of some foods, such as Peanut Butter, but they are destructive to your body systems.

Oils and Saturated Fats have been scientifically linked to depression.

You need to eliminate processed sugar, deep fried foods and all processed meats, most of which you’ll find at the Deli Counter in the Supermarket.

Here’s more “tough love.”

Cut down on the Coffee and Caffeine (avoid the De-Caffeinated Coffee).

Experiment with one cup of coffee (don’t cheat with a giant mug.) if the one cup is enjoyable with no bad consequences, then maybe another one or two cups, spread throughout the day, could be fine. Try it.

Stay away from the so-called “Power Drinks” that are strongly caffeinated. Just like sugar, Caffeine comes with its own “crash” an hour or two later – and now how do you feel?

Eliminate distilled alcohol and wines. These products contain a lot of sugar and made by fermenting fruits and vegetables. Any sugar fermented drinks should be avoided – why make someone else rich at the expense of your own health.

Today, everyone is really busy, and time is always at a premium. But don’t use “busy” as a reason to eat packaged, processed meals like TV Dinners, Packaged Casseroles and Packaged Frozen Fried Meats. Anything that has been processed contains far less nutritional value than fresh foods, and the processed packaged stuff is not cheap.

Many fresh fruits and vegetables (including canned beans) and legumes, can be a good source of your daily requirement of Protein and Carbs.

One of the quick and healthy ways to get Protein and Carbs, is to make delicious “smoothies” in a high-powered Blender.

You’ll find some vegetables like kale leaves can be a little bitter, but you can turn that smoothie into a tasty flavorful drink by adding other naturally sweet tasting fruits and vegetables, like Pineapple chunks.

Here’s a BONUS recipe that Dr. Alan Mandell recommends to make your BRAIN function better and you’ll feel Great.

The Brain Fog Fixer Smoothie:

  • 2 cups of fresh spinach
  • 1 apple
  • 1 raw peeled beet
  • 1 cucumber
  • ½ Lemon (wash and leave skin on)
  • 1-inch round of fresh ginger
  • ½ cup of Cilantro
  • 1 cup of Blackberries or Pineapple for added Sweetness, not necessary but you might like a slightly sweeter taste

You can adjust the amount of the ingredients to serve one person or four.  For one person, use ¼ of the above amounts.

Smoothies can be as delicious and nutritious as your imagination allows.

Bananas, Broccoli, raspberries, oranges, celery, sweet potatoes, green cabbage, red cabbage, carrots and plain canned pumpkin are all great options or combinations for a greater variety of tastes and flavors.

We also must mention “turmeric” as an addition to your cooking. Turmeric is an East-Indian Spice used in many curries. The Curcumin in Turmeric gives it a bright yellow color. Chinese fried rice gets that golden color from the added turmeric.

But Turmeric is worth a look for other reasons besides taste. Studies have shown that turmeric may help to prevent some forms of cancer, plus fight the free radicals that damage DNA and has been proven to reduce joint pain.

Both Turmeric and Curcumin are easily available in Health food stores and in many supermarkets as a health supplement.

Here’s some more money-saving Tips:

  • Plan your meals on paper and purchase only the amount you can easily keep fresh.
  • Shop to a list in the Grocery Store
  • Wash all fruits and vegetables and store them in containers or wrapping in your fridge.
  • Don’t buy anything that’s on the verge of spoiling, just because it’s cheaper. Many times, you’ll just end up tossing into the garbage.
  • Consumer studies have shown, that on average, families end up throwing almost 1/3rd of the contents of your fridge into the garbage on a monthly basis. That’s not cheap, so only buy what you know you can use to make meals.

Celebrate your healthy food choices. Serve those delicious smoothies in a beautiful glass, gaily decorated or even pure crystal. Use a wide straw and drink it slowly while savoring the wonderful flavor of fresh fruits, vegetable and even nuts/seeds.

They all work in a good blender.

When Waking Up is Hard to Do

Since fatigue is a classic symptom of dehydration, drinking a glass of water as soon as you get up out of bed, can be helpful in getting wide awake and ready to take on the day.

Dehydration can also cause moodiness and lowered cognitive ability. It’s worth repeating. Drink 8 – 10 glasses of water spread out over the day and evening.

When you sleep at night, you will enter periods of REM sleep. During REM sleep, our body is in a state of paralysis. If you do some stretching exercises, isometric exercises or yoga, soon after waking up, you will re-activate your muscles which, in turn, release energy-stimulating endorphins.

In just 25 minutes, you can boost your energy levels and improve your brain function.

A cold shower will energize you and make you feel “up”. If you don’t want a full shower, splash cold water on your face. When your body senses a temperature change, you will feel increased energy levels.

If getting out of bed is a problem, keep a spray bottle of water on your bedside table and mist your face lightly with it.

How to “Get Up and Get at ‘Em:

Breakfast is important. Always eat it after you do your exercises or stretching. Organic oatmeal with berries and a ½ teaspoon of genuine maple syrup is an excellent breakfast choice. Avoid Sugars, Fats and Dairy. Limit or eliminate those Bacon and Eggs.

If you eat sugary breakfast cereals, you enter the risk of the classic sugar spike and subsequent drop that will leave you feeling tired and drained.

Keep whole foods like apples, carrots, kiwis and oranges on hand for healthy snacks.

Experiment with your coffee consumption. Black is best.

Remember your “food journal” we mentioned earlier. Use it to monitor how coffee makes you feel and determine how much is too much. Choose the best organic Coffee you can find. Be careful not to choose de-caffeinated or flavored coffee – you’ll feel better if you don’t.

Spend some time outside every day. Sunlight increases your body’s serotonin levels, leading to improved sleep and increased daytime energy. Take Vitamin D in tablet form daily to ensure you’re not deficient in the important benefits this vitamin provides. This is important on cloudy or overcast days.

Take a quick walk or bike ride during your lunch hour or after supper. Work with light weights to improve your arm muscle strength. Cultivate a friend or buddy with whom you can walk or do yoga. Having a friend, you can talk to will help to reduce your stress.

TV, other video sources and media, are vastly different from what they were years ago. In the 1950’s, programming was supervised by the major TV Networks and shocking content was rarely a problem. Today, many dark topics find themselves masquerading as drama; Depictions of cruelty of animals seems to be allowed in the name of investigative journalism. Watching content based on “shock value” when you least expect it, can be quite upsetting and may take time to get over. In today’s media climate, we must monitor what we allow into our heads and make decisions about negative or destructive content.

Life today can be extremely stressful. Some stress can be useful and even stimulating. Healthy stressors encourage achievement and an impetus to develop better work and study habits.

Negative stress makes you feel anxious and afraid. Bad stress raises your blood pressure and heart rate.

Write down what causes you stress or anger. Think what you can do about the issues or your reaction to them. If the thing that is bothering you is a fact, then your task is to accept it and decide how to deal with it, rather than fretting over it to no avail.

Stress is normal. There are challenges in life for all of us. Seek out a professional therapist if you need help to sort it out and clarify what is causing you this stress, and how you can cope more positively.

Sometimes things happen that seem tragic on their face and then we come to realize that the angst or loss or pressure, was necessary for us to move to a healthier new place.

Anger is a totally negative and useless emotion. It does not solve problems and all that happens is that it gets in our way. Angry people do not think clearly, and the body can be harmed by a sudden rise in blood pressure. Think calmly about what our options are moving forward. Make some decisions and move on. Negative emotions such as anger will only impede your progress.

Remember, YOU can decide how you feel. If you are angry, then others are controlling how you feel.

Taking control of your emotions, what you eat and drink, who you associate with, how well you look after yourself and how you spend your time are all issues that are in your power.

Calm down and think things through.

Take baby steps to start; build on success; don’t ever give up.

We also need to mention the importance of mistakes. Those are the blind alleys that don’t lead anywhere; mistakes help us to narrow our choices; mistakes lead to wisdom.

The Wise Man says with confidence; No, not that…but do this.

Make the changes that will lead you to a more healthy and productive life.

You can do this!

What people are saying about My Doctor Suggests

Never be without.

Bought these and the honey and lemon ones, and like them both. I like the honey & lemon ones best, but plan on trying the other flavors as well and buying some for stocking stuffers. They taste good and do help with the sore throat I have from strep throat. I also have an occasional chronic cough from one of my bp meds, and plan on having these on hand for that as well.

Great for first aid and wrinkles

I have been using My Dr. Suggests gel, liquid and lozenges for a while now. This gel is wonderful for wounds and burns and is the very first and most important thing in my first aid kit. It is the best thing ever for insect bites, fever blisters sunburns but my favorite use is as a wrinkle treatment. Almost like magic it makes the lines disappear and firms the skin. Give it a try. You’ll be glad you did!

These are the best throat lozenges I have ever used!

these are the best throat lozenges Ive ever used. The ginger is strong and soothing and I feel like the silver did shorten the duration of my sore throat.

Very nice soap

Very nice soap. Lathers nicely, nice fragrance, but you can definitely tell there’s no added fragrance, which is great for me, since my skin usually rebels against most nasty additives. I had a problem with a rash on my leg that wasn’t getting better with any OTC treatment. I started using this & within a week there was definite improvement. Love it for my face as well, leaves skin soft & in less need of moisturizer.

Great Lotion!

Super moisturizing! My kids all have eczema and this lotion kept it at bay. We’ve been thrilled with the results. It’s not too thick, either. Absorbs beautifully.
