Natural Relief for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is On the Way
Eating Your Way to Better Health
Remember what I just told you about Chronic Fatigue and inflammation? Chronic inflammation is a problem that physicians are beginning to pay attention to in a big way.
Chronic inflammation is turning out to be the leading cause of high cholesterol and many heart and circulatory diseases. It resides for the most part in your arteries, blood vessels, and veins.
When you take action against this chronic inflammation in your circulatory system, improved heart health is much easier.
This health culprit is caused by what we’re eating. That’s right, it’s the ridiculous stuff we are putting in our mouths that we call food. Here’s a list of foods you need to avoid and get them out of your diet:
- Refined sugar
- Artificial flavoring
- Artificial colors
- Saturated fats
Getting these away from your mouth will help you reduce inflammation in your body, bringing relief from your chronic fatigue syndrome.
It took me a few weeks to get my mind to accept that eating flour and sugar was not going to happen any more, but it has definitely changed my life—for the better—no, the best.
The first thing to do is to accept that if what you’re eating won’t rot, it’s not really food at all. The next thing to do is start learning for yourself which foods you eat that won’t rot.
This leaves you with a diet of whole foods that exist in a natural state without being processed. These are examples of whole foods:
- Whole grains
- Lean protein
- Healthy fat from oils and nuts and meats (not sandwich meat.
Fresh Foods Are the Cure for Fatigue
Get in the habit, and frame of mind, that fresh foods are what keeps you healthy and free from fatigue. Processed foods come in packages, and filled with chemicals that you can’t pronounce. These “faux” foods cause your body to react with inflammation to fight off the damage and toxins they bring.
It won’t take but a few weeks to see real relief from your symptoms of CFS and improved overall health.
