Chronic Fatigue Syndrome CMS Causes and Cures
Do You Feel Constantly Tired?
Is your mood blank and libido low? You feel like you are constantly tired and sleep doesn't help at all? You are too tired to get yourself motivated and this is taking toll on your entire life?
Seems like you're having a Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. If you don't have any medical condition that requires regular drugs intake, that are responsible for your fatigue, and you are not suffering dehydration, then you most likely have vital nutrients deficiency and your overall immune system needs a boost.
Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a condition of prolonged and persistent tiredness and fatigue that is not relieved by rest and is not directly caused by specific conditions.
The exact causes of CFS are unknown. However, there are several possible causes behind it:
Infections. (such as Yeast Infections)
Muscle or nerve diseases (such as Multiple sclerosis)
Endocrine disorders (such as Hypothyroidism or Adrenal Fatigue)
- Stress, Sleep deprivation
- Nutrients deficiencies
You should get yourself examined for infections and medical conditions mentioned above, if you suffer from persistent fatigue. If you have no medical conditions, however, then your problem roots in your life style, in particular stress and its long-term effects on your body.
Stress puts strain on your body. It is an evolutionary mechanism to speed up energy transfer and responses in your body in order to survive and/ or cope with a demanding situation. However, it is meant to last for a while and then settle back to calm and normal. But, in the fast-paced modern life, stress levels can remain high for prolonged periods of time, even settle as the norm.
Although stress responses in the body are triggered by exterior stimuli, it can also be triggered by psychological tension. When stress levels are elevated, your endocrine system produces large amounts of hormones such as cortisol and norepinephrine. When stress levels are kept high for prolonged periods, your body eventually gets exhausted and its resources are gradually depleted. At this stage you begin to feel tiredness and persistent fatigue. Your immune system weakens and many other complications may follow from this, especially in the long-term if you don't replenish your body and rejuvenate your immune system.
Prolonged high stress levels are know to cause:
- Problems with the digestive system (ulcers, bad metabolism)
- Cardiovascular problems
And your weakened immune system, in turn, makes you much more susceptible to infections. Your body and your psyche are one interconnected system that is entangled and if one element becomes out of balance, many other will follow in a chain reaction. So, as with many other health problems, this one must also be treated in a holistic approach. And you should start with learning to Manage Stress. As stress is the most likely underlying cause for your CMS.
You must learn to manage your emotional responses to stress and improve your ability to cope with it. You must learn to manage yourself, overall, in order to become a more balanced person. You shouldn't let stress overcome you, you should strive to be positive, to assure yourself of your own skills and abilities to cope with the stressful factors and most of all, you shouldn't take things too seriously, you do need to integrate a more calm and philosophical view towards life and the problems people are bound to have along the way.
Find things that inspire you, appreciate the beauty of nature, the sheer mystery of life. Begin to exercise, whatever regular physical activity will keep your libido, mood and overall feeling of well-being high. Smile more. The very physical act of smiling signals positive emotions to your brain. You need to change your mindset in order to gain new perspectives. Make a change in your lifestyle too.
I do not recommend to turn to pharmaceutical medicine in treating your fatigue. There are well established herbal and vitamin supplements that will help you better and with no side effects in the long term.
The first important supplement you need is a good B Vitamins complex. B Vitamins are essential for your nervous system, boost your immunity, give you energy and uplift your mood. I can recommend these quality and well priced brands:

Rhodiola rosea root is used to diminish fatigue and maximize the body's natural resistance to various stress factors. This supplement is excellent in both price and quality:
You should also supply yourself with Vitamin C with bioflavonoids for better absorption. As Vit. C is a powerful antioxidant and immune booster.
You can also try an anti-fatigue formula in combination with the above for the first month, to give you an initial boost in your start up recovery. Here is a suggestion:

"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. To whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe is as good as dead. His eyes are shut."
