Another Study Just Linked Chronic Fatigue Syndrome to Gut Bacteria

You’d almost have to be living under a rock these days not to know how important a balanced gut microbiome is to your overall health, but in case you needed more proof, a new study has just linked gut bacteria to chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). According to Science Alert, patients diagnosed with CFS have abnormal levels of specific gut bacteria.

Maybe it sounds too simple to suggest that eating the right things and balancing your gut microbiome is all it takes to cure all kinds of ills, from Crohn’s disease and other bowel disorders to anxiety, depression and, now, CFS. But the truth is you can heal your body from the inside, out, head to toe by changing your diet — and ultimately your gut microbiome.

To get started, ditch grains and sugars and replace them with whole, fresh, organic foods and embrace a diet that includes fermented foods. Beneficial bacteria found in fermented foods have been shown particularly effective for suppressing colon cancer, but may also inhibit cancers of the breast, liver, small intestine and other organs.

Also avoid foods with hidden antibiotics in them, especially commercial meats from livestock productions which use antibiotics and growth hormones to fatten up their animals.

Another part of the equation is eating foods grown in healthy soils. Factory-farmed vegetables grown in nutrient-poor soils are not going to give you the same bang for your buck. This is where your local farmers or farmers markets can help — besides supporting locally-grown foods, you can use these outlets to determine how your food was grown, and whether you want to consume it.
