Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: Are You Often Tired? Searching for a Cure?

By George Alarcon

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is probably one of the most misunderstood diseases in existence today. Many doctors continue to doubt that CFS is even a real disease. Some doctors think CFS is no more than a psychological disorder, or an extended symptom of another disease. CFS is an insidious disease with no absolute connection or root cause being yet discovered. On top of that, there exist no constant biological determinants to open the way to objective measurements like brain scans or blood tests for conducting an absolute diagnosis of CFS. So clearly and frustratingly for those who suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, have great barriers stacked against them from the very beginning.

Surveys indicate that Chronic Fatigue Syndrome impacts more than four in every 1,000 Americans. According to a U.S. study, women suffered the highest rates of CFS. Individuals ages between 40 to 50, suffered CFS more often than any other age group. CFS affects both sexes of all ages, and across all ethnic and racial groups.

What are some of the most common symptoms of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?

The most identified and common symptoms of CFS are the following:

--A severe exhaustion lasting over six months and which doesn't get better even after sleep.

--Periods of forgetfulness, memory loss, confusion, or difficulty concentrating

--Tender lymph nodes in the neck or armpits.

--Joint pain without redness or swelling.

--Unrefreshing sleep, or unable to fall asleep

--Fatigue lasting more than 24 hours after exercise.

--Fatigue that significantly disables a person's ability to behave and function regularly at work, at home, and in social events.

--When minimal exercise intensifies other CFS symptoms.

--Sensitivity to sunlight.

What Can I Do Right Now to Better Cope with CFS?

Here are a few steps you can begin implementing in your life for coping with CFS:

Tip #1: If you suspect but are not 100% certain that you have CFS, locate a clinic that treats CFS and request a diagnostic test to determine if you have CFS.

Tip 2: Eat a well-balanced diet consisting of fresh fruits, vegetables, protein, and whole grains. Try to eliminate as much as you can sugar and animal fat in your meals.

Tip #3: Exercise regularly everyday but do not over do it. Stay within your limits. How? If you cannot tolerate a whole hour of walking, jogging, or cycling without adverse consequences such as sleeping more than your usual, do less.

Tip #4: If you find yourself unable to sleep soundly, consider taking a safe natural remedy that treats insomnia.

Tip #5: If you feel depressed, discouraged, and even defeated because of chronic fatigue syndrome, consider taking a safe natural remedy that treats depression.

Tip #6: CFS patients suffer from a weak immune system. That is why they catch a cold or flu so easily. Supplement your diet with something that strengths your immune system.

Tip #7: Whenever you have time, educate yourself about CFS online and offline. Type in "chronic fatigue syndrome in the search engine window and browse. The more you know about CFS, the better you'll cope with this disease.

I personally have done battle with this enduring and merciless "beast." I can honestly confess that Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is an affliction not easily treated. I have learned a great deal through trials and errors what works and what doesn't. Often I have wasted my hard-earned money on products that did nothing for me.

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
