What are the Symptoms and Prevalence of Chronic Fatigue?

Recognising the Symptoms of Chronic Fatigue

'Tired all the time'; not refreshed by sleep

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (also CFS) is suffered by millions of people throughout the world – and evidence shows its prevalence is increasing.

Estimates of prevalence vary. However it is estimated  have Chronic Fatigue - and in the UK around a quarter of a million people. The main symptom is "feeling tired all the time" - which is unrelieved by sleep. Sufferers are generally 'tired when they wake up' - getting worse as the day goes on.

Surprisingly - new evidence reports that the inability to fully digest certain foods (food intolerance) could be a factor. Recent studies show:

  • Certain foods bring on chronic fatigue syndrome in some people
  • Removing those foods from the diet improves symptoms and overall wellness

Chronic Fatigue is also associated with a number of other symptoms:

  • Depression and social withdrawal
  • Frequent headaches
  • Joint pain
  • Physical and mental exhaustion
  • Respiratory difficulty
  • Others

The inability to fully digest certain foods (food intolerance) has far-reaching effects - and according to this new evidence even includes the ability to cause chronic fatigue syndrome.


What causes Chronic Fatigue?

One cause: FOOD TOXINS 

Recent studies* show Chronic Fatigue is commonly caused by COMMON FOOD TOXINS found in many staple foods.

The problem with food toxins - is the all act together in different combinations to bring misery. If you do suffer from chronic fatigue - studies show moving to a LOW TOXIN DIET could bring good relief. 


How do food toxins cause chronic fatigue?

The Vagus nerve


When food toxins get into your bloodstream they are not recognised as 'friendly' by your immune system. In fact - food toxins provoke the immune system.

The immediate response is to set up inflammation in your body:

  • Inflammation in the small intestine from food toxins hinders digestion.

  • But distress signals are sent to the brain.

The small intestine is connected to the brain via the vagus nerve - a double nerve trunk.

You have no energy, you can't think straight. It's easy to start feeling helpless - and hopeless. And oh so tired!

Because the symptoms are coming from your brain.




What is the treatment for Chronic Fatigue?

Treatment for Chronic Fatigue

Temporary relief treatment: You can take daily medications or supplements for a few hours relief. Some people choose to keep using heavy anti-depressants and other medications. Fortunately - some doctors now understand that food toxins can cause Chronic Fatigue Syndrome - and are beginning to recognise the benefits of a changed diet.

Permanent relief treatment: Go to the source of your Chronic Fatigue . . . move to a LOW TOXIN DIET.



What if I do nothing about my Chronic Fatigue?

Doing nothing about your chronic fatigue leaves you vulnerable to the development of other diseases - like diabetes, colitis, thyroid disease, depression and others. Of course you can choose to do nothing.

But until now - you may have thought there was nothing you could do.

There is something - and it needs no drugs, therapies or procedures. Just a different diet.


Member letter


'When I stopped eating those foods, my life changed, seemingly overnight.  I lost eight pounds in 6 weeks;  Since August, I have lost close to 15 lbs.  Not even trying--I certainly eat my share of corn on the cob, potatoes and rice! My cholesterol has plummeted as well, to 187, down from a high of 264. 


Now I realize just how much was due to food intolerance.  Now I'm digesting all food better, I have a craving for vegetables that is new for me, and I'm off all supplements. In general, I look and feel fantastic!  Better energy, no more bouts of daytime sleepiness, better concentration.  My clothes fit much better. My skin is smoother.  I sleep through the night better, and wake up refreshed, not groggy.  My exercise program just took a leap into the stratosphere after I started eating properly--it was as though I could "find" and feel my muscles in a way I couldn't before. 


And so, a great, big THANK YOU! from the bottom of my heart (and gut!).  I pass along your web site to everyone I know who is having food issues.  Keep up the good work!!! All the best, Diane, New York'
