Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Common Sense Recommendations
Make sure you don't attempt more activity than you can handle. Get plenty of rest, pay attention to your diet, and exercise lightly on a regular basis.
Eat a well-balanced diet of 50 percent raw foods and fresh juices. The diet should consist mostly of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, plus raw nuts, seeds, skinless turkey, and some deep-water fish. These quality foods supply nutrients that renew energy and build immunity .
Add some form of acidophilus to your diet, and regularly consume soured products such as yogurt and kefir. Acidophilus helps to keep candida under control.
Consume at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day plus juices. Freshly made vegetable juices are preferred. Water flushes out toxins and aids in reducing muscle pain.
Avoid shellfish, fried foods, junk foods, processed foods, coffee, tea, soft drinks, sugar and foods made with white flour such as bread and pasta.
Good bowel movements are important. Make sure that your diet consists of sufficient fiber. Occasional cleansing enemas are also useful.
Get plenty of rest. Do not over- exert.
Do not take aspirin. If a viral infection is present, Reye's syndrome may result.
