The Symptoms of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome symptoms are numerous, and often this condition is misdiagnosed as a result. Known as CFS for short, it is marked by severe exhaustion not remedied with rest or medications that might help a healthy tired individual.

What are CFS symptoms?

There are many symptoms of this condition, yet many of them could be caused by other conditions such as heart disease and cancer, or prescription medications you may be taking for something else. So it's important to be tested to rule out other possibilities and to make sure CFS is indeed what you suffer from.

Following are the main Chronic Fatigue Syndrome symptoms:

  • Muscle Pain and Weakness
  • Joint Pain
  • Headaches
  • Painful Lymph Nodes
  • Sleep Disturbance
  • Depression
  • Confusion
  • Mild Fever
  • Sore Throat
  • Forgetfulness
  • Lack of Concentration

What are the best natural treatment options?

Fortunately there are steps you can take to treat Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Review the following protocol to learn how you can relieve the effects of this disorder.

  1. Make sure you exercise. Although you might feel too tired to do so, lack of exercise is worse for CFS as muscles will weaken. Any form of exercise will improve your body's health by facilitating blood flow and metabolism. It will also help you build and strengthen muscle tissue.

  2. Follow a healthy diet regimen. Along with regular exercise it is always important to maintain a healthy diet, with natural, balanced foods - fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans, fish. Avoid processed and fast foods, refined sugars and excessive alcohol. You want to make sure your body has essential nutrients it needs for proper function, while at the same time avoiding toxins which are harmful substances.

  3. Supplement important nutrients. Unfortunately, most of us do not eat properly. Also, most foods are depleted of essential nutrients due to overprocessing. So in most cases it makes sense to supplement important nutrients. There are many natural herbs, vitamins and minerals that can help specifically with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Symptoms.

There are natural energy boosting herbs such as siberian ginseng, gotu kola and maitake.

There are natural energy boosting vitamins such as the B, Family, particularly B12, Biotin and Folic Acid. B vitamins help fight fatigue by helping our body use the sugar glucose (fuel) and aiding in the formation of red blood cells (energy transport).

There are natural energy boosting minerals and nutrients such as NADH, Co-Enzyme Q-10 and magnesium, all of which can treat chronic fatigue syndrome symptoms by increasing energy production in cells.

There are also natural ingredients that can treat other Chronic Fatigue Syndrome symptoms such as headaches, confusion, depression and lack of concentration.

What's the Best Way to Treat Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Symptoms?

Should you take all of these herbs, vitamins and minerals separately or together in one comprehensive formula?

We recommend that you take these nutrients together if possible for many reasons:

  1. Taking each herb, vitamin and mineral separately could prove very costly as you would have to buy many different supplements.

  2. Mixing and matching herbs and nutrients on your own could be dangerous to your health.

  3. Many nutrients working together can be more beneficial that a single nutrient on its own.

  4. All of these nutrients have to be balanced perfectly in order to be optimally effective.

The product is called Total Balance, and we have made it our core nutritional supplement.
