Recommendation for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Diet, Lifestyle and Yoga have their own importance, when it comes to cure and management of any of the diseases. Conditions like Chronic fatigue syndrome need more care and alteration in the lifestyle and diet. Here are the best recommendations for diet and lifestyle for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
Diet for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome:
- Avoid too much intake of sugar and sweets. Sweet foods cause dramatic fluctuations in blood-glucose levels, and unstable blood-sugar levels cause fatigue.

- You should take frequent, small meals. It will help keep blood- sugar levels stable.
- Eat raw fruits and vegetables, whole grains and unroasted nuts and seeds. Raw fruits and vegetables and whole grains provide fiber. Fiber alleviates constipation, a factor in fatigue.
- Apples, oatmeal and oat bran are particularly beneficial because the fiber they contain is water-soluble and binds and eliminates toxins.
- Avoid all forms of refined carbohydrates (white flour, white rice).
- Eat plain, unsweetened yogurt or drink kefir daily to provide friendly bacteria which inhibit the growth of candida yeast. Take a good basic multivitamin/mineral supplement with adequate amounts of trace minerals.
