I have been diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome. symptoms include extreme tiredness, heavy aching muscles, flu-like symptoms with swollen glands, migraines, burning swollen joints and numbness in legs and arms.
It is essential to build up a healthy immune system with rest, sleep and appropriate dietary management. In addition, herbal and vitamin supplements can help to support the body's nervous and digestive system, as well as boost the immune system.
It is difficult to advise on general diet as allergic reactions arising from a depressed immune system vary greatly from sufferer to sufferer.
However, certain foods should certainly be avoided and this would include fermented products, cheese, wine, mushrooms and chocolate. The diet should be as natural as possible and avoid foods containing artificial preservatives, colourings and flavourings.
Also exclude refined white flour and sugar. The remedies Daily Choice Antioxidant, Eleutherococcus, and Energy Factors, would be beneficial.
