CHRONIC FATIGUE and IMMUNE DYSFUNCTION SYNDROME

CFS or CFIS affects between 75 and 265 people per 100,000 population. In the early 1980s mainly well-educated, well-off women in their 30s and 40s sought help as per the report made by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. Since then, however, the syndrome has affected people of all ages, races and social classes in the world. CHRONIC FATIGUE and IMMUNE DYSFUNCTION SYNDROME

  • Sore throat, tender lymph nodes
  • Fatigue and weakness
  • Muscle pain, multijoint pain without swelling or redness
  • Unrefreshing sleep
  • Substantial impairment in short-term memory or concentration
  • Headaches
  • Allergies

Before, research has shown that infection causes this syndrome. However, in the later years, many doctors have attributed the disease to depression.

Although there is no published scientific evidence that CFS or CFIS is caused by nutritional deficiency, it was found out, however, that reducing the intake of carbohydrates and dairy products is beneficial. Doing light exercise and maintaining a well-balanced diet is also recommended to fight against this syndrome. CHRONIC FATIGUE and IMMUNE DYSFUNCTION SYNDROME
