A Natural Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Treatment That Will Help Get Back Your Energy
I had someone recently ask me for advice about dealing with chronic fatigue syndrome. Their doctor had told them to avoid most fruits and vegetables and they felt confused as their body was craving these foods.
I don’t mean to offend anyone’s beliefs but I will say a lot of times the doctor’s advice is the exact opposite to what you should be doing. I don’t think avoiding fruits and vegetables is going to help at all.
Maximise Energy Efficiency In the Body
Let’s take a look at energy in the body.
Fresh fruits and vegetables have high amounts of phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals and electrical force that actually give the body energy. The digestive process uses a lot of energy. So eating things like fruit that are easy to digest and high in nutrition is a great way to conserve energy.
Think about how you feel when you eat something heavy. I can work out 45 minutes hard core and still have energy, however after I eat a big heavy meal I feel absolutely hacked!
Trouble Shooting Chronic Fatigue
Something that is worth ruling out first is that maybe you have a caloric issue rather than chronic fatigue. Maybe you’re not meeting your caloric needs from the right kind of foods that are going to supply that energy.
It’s bananas, strawberries, papayas, mangoes that you really need to start eating to clean the digestive system. Fruits are one of the greatest detoxifiers, so they will help you detox your kidneys and potentially even the adrenal glands and start to get you to a place of health.
Vegetables are also really beneficial. They are very alkalising. When we become too acidic it affects the adrenal glands and pretty much everything in the body. Having lots of vegetables like cucumber, celery, spinach in the form of juices, smoothies or big salads are absolutely fantastic to give you energy and alkalise your body.
So I would actually recommend a high fruit and vegetable diet to get you back to a place of energy and feeling good. But my biggest tip here is that you have to make sure you are calorically satiating yourself.
A lot of people eat a couple of bananas and a salad then they’re full because there stomach is a little bit full (for a minute!) but calorically they are highly deficient. As you transition to this kind of nutrient dense low calorie food you need to train yourself to actually start eating more to get the calories in.
I promise you, in 3 to 4 weeks or it might be a couple of months (depending on the level of detox needed) you start having this profound energy that you’ve never had before.
Reset Your System And Say Good Bye To Adrenal Fatigue For Good
Now if the low energy is due to something happening in the neuroendocrine system and you’re suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome I recommend an extended fast.
You can fast on either water or juices. Water will be more effective (but tough) but on juices you’ll feel better and they’re still quite effective. Either way you need to fast typically from 10 to 14 days.
If the condition is super chronic as in almost degenerative I would say you need to do 21 to 30 days on juices or water. (Water fasts should be supervised when done longer than 7 days).
When you’re juice fasting you may get to a point where you don’t feel like drinking juice anymore and just prefer water. If this happens go with your feeling until you start wanting to have juices again.
Plato, Socrates, Pythagoras, Hippocrates and Paracelsus were all proponents for extended fasting. They knew in a 10 to 14 day period the body resets itself. Your entire neuroendocrine system is reset. As a result the glands begin to work the way they should, digestion starts to function properly, energy comes back, all these systems have time to detox and you come out of it literally like you’re reborn.
A Healthy Diet To Give You Energy
After the fast I’d recommend you begin a high caloric intake of fresh fruits (first), then vegetables, nuts, roots and seeds. With all your systems reset after the fast you’ll really be able to process these foods properly and as a result feel absolutely fantastic.
Focus more on fruit and vegetables, but having a variety of nuts and seeds and even grains (sprouted) is important because these foods have other nutrients that our body requires. Grains soaked, sprouted or germinated are one of the healthiest foods on the planet.
A lot of diseases and problems of digestion are coming from the things that are sprayed onto grains like pesticides. By soaking and rinsing and germinating grains you remove any toxicity and get access to the life force and amazing array of nutrients that they contain.
I know that if someone is suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome the absolutely best thing to do is a fast (and rest). It’s the ultimate way to reset your system and start getting your energy back.
