The funny thing about chronic fatigue syndrome is, people who have it, turn to
caffeine to help the problem and it does help for a little while, but the problem
continues to get worse. They just think they need more caffeine.
If you read the page on fibromyalgia you'll see that fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue
are the same problem. People with chronic fatigue have more fatigue than pain
while fibromyagia people have more pain than fatigue. Most have both or have
fatigue one day and pain the next. Please read the page on fibromyalgia.
Chronic fatigue starts with food that cannot be converted into energy. Real food
that was created by God for us, his children, to eat contains energy and
nourishment. It's when we humans change the food supply chemically that our
bodies can no longer convert the chemically modified food into energy. We don't
have the enzymes necessary to convert man made chemical foods into energy. As
a result we skip breakfast because it makes us sluggish and we drink our beloved
coffee. You can substitute which ever caffeine source that you like. Later when we
start to get hungry we grab a cookie to keep our stomach happy.
We have been lead to believe that breakfast food like box cereal, "whole grains"
beagles, toast, fast food biscuits, and the all time favorite doughnuts are suitable
Here is what happens in your body to create chronic fatigue. It starts out okay
because it feel good to drink that very first cup of coffee and how could life get any
better. Just add a doughnut and nothing could be better? In place of a nutritious
energy producing breakfast we subsituted caffeine which artificially stimulates the
adrenal gland to produce cortisol a blood sugar elevator. Who needs food when you
have coffee? When you do this day after day for months and years there is a price
to pay. The adrenal glands shrink. It now takes more coffee to get the same feeling
of energy. After a while you can drink all the coffee you want because the adrenal
gland has nothing left to give. Chronic fatigue people can drink a pot of coffee and
go right to sleep. Just like in the picture above, the coffee no longer has the effect it
once did. We eat poorly and cannot regenerate the adrenal gland or get energy
from the food we eat. This is chronic fatigue in a nut shell. The chronic fatigue
person never changes this cycle of eating and as the adrenal gland gets weak and
stays weak. It weakens the whole endocrine system. The endocrine system uses
hormonal messengers to control and coordinate a whole bunch of other systems in
I think it's pretty easy to see what needs to be done to help the problem. If you
can't give up the coffee and start eating a real food for breakfast, you'll probable
never get better.
Eat meat, fish, or eggs for breakfast not sugar and flour based foods. Eat fresh
vegetables or fruit with the meat, fish, or eggs. This is where you have to start.
Over the years using the Biomeridian machine I have been able to detect areas of
the body which need extra support and supply supplementation to help recovery.
Get in touch with someone in your area that carries Standard Process supplements
and get started on adrenal gland support products.
