Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is an overwhelming fatigue that is often made worse by even the slightest physical and mental activity. No matter how much a person with CFS rests, his exhaustion still persists. In addition to affecting work productivity and general quality of life, it can lead to depression and debilitating anxiety.
Though the exact cause is unknown, experts believe it is associated with a virus or an immune response to a previous virus. It often comes on suddenly in the aftermath of a bad flu or other viral infection.
Many find that dietary changes and supplements can get the body back on track and reduce symptoms. Taking a B complex, like Vital B 100, available at Dr. Newton’s Naturals, has been known to revive energy in CFS sufferers.
This kind of persistent exhaustion can have severe consequences for emotional health, and those who have chronic fatigue syndrome for over a year, or who feel that it has been affecting their mental health, should speak to a counselor or join a support group in addition to making the necessary dietary changes.
