We’ve Found Even More Proof That Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Is Real

Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a condition with a variety of symptoms that could point to any number of diagnoses for other diseases, and which often ends with those who have it being told it’s all in their head. Now, according to Science Alert, researchers report they not only may have discovered biological markers that can help diagnose CFS, but have confirmed that it “clearly” is an inflammatory disease.

Chronic fatigue syndrome, or myalgic encephalomyelitis, can be debilitating and devastating to the individual and their family members, as those who suffer with it experience unrelenting fatigue no matter how much rest they get. From sore throat to joint pain to flu-like symptoms and gastrointestinal problems, CFS symptoms are well-documented but until recently were not well-understood.

One study that has helped point researchers in the right direction does confirm, however, that CFS appears to have inflammatory markers beginning in the gut, so healing and sealing your gut and reducing the inflammatory response in your body may result in a significant reduction in symptoms.

This may not eliminate the symptoms completely, but it can help. Begin by avoiding gluten and wheat products; reduce your net carbs — the total grams of carbohydrates you eat in a day, minus the grams of fiber you’ve eaten — and increase your fiber intake. Focus on eating whole food vegetables, nuts and seeds.

And, eat fermented foods. Although the idea of eating “fermented” foods may sound distasteful, you might be surprised by the list of tasty delicacies produced through this ancient preparation and preservation technique. By breaking down carbohydrates and proteins using bacteria, foods become functional, delicious and a source of natural probiotics to feed your gut, helping you to fight inflammation in a positive, healthful manner.
