CFS Resource

I ran across this blog in which the author has a vast amount of resources directed towards CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome).  CFS is best described as a chronic infection exacerbated by oxidative damage from heavy metals and environmental toxins along which creates an adrenal fatigue issue.  Nutrient status plays an important role in recovery.   In addition it is important to identify the pathogenic issue.

For a long time, it was thought that viral issues played a role in this, specifically Epstein Barr virus.  That theory (Epstein Barr) was primitive and other viral infections are likely to blame.  However the
viral theory is only one of many pathogens that can create the turbulence in the body known as CFS. Lyme is possibility as well as gastrointestinal infections.   Parasites will cause a living hell in the body but proper testing should be done.   At this time, Metametrix offers a DNA based test that is the most sensitive.   Other opportunistic infections in the gut would include yeast/fungal issues as well as bacterial dysbiosis.  Mycoplasma infections have also been implicated.

Heavy metal intoxification should be considered as well as nutrient deficiency which would include vitamin D3 status, magnesium and a whole host of other minerals, vitamins and antioxidants.

Adrenal weakness is always an occurring problem with any chronic infection and toxin problem, liver congestion also occurs and must be addressed.   I have some information on these issues at pptu.lefora  under 'supporting the body' category.
