Treatment: Herb and Supplement to Treat Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)

  [ 61 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
By xx • • December 12, 2000

Many individuals with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome choose to treat their condition with natural herbs and supplements. The following is a breakdown by category of symptoms. Nutritional supplements targeted toward each symptom follow.


NADH, also known as Coenzyme 1, triggers energy production, boosts production of dopamine and other neurotransmitters and helps restore normal brain chemistry by increasing cellular energy output.
Co-Q-10 is a potent anti-oxidant that is instrumental in helping the body produce energy at the cellular level. Without it, the body cannot produce energy.
Malic Acid is present in all living cells and is essential for converting sugars and fats into ATP, the body’s energy source. It also is used for stress and to decrease muscle pain.
Magnesium is a vital catalyst in enzyme activity, especially those involved in energy production. Magnesium helps with muscle ache and fatigue.

  • General immunity
      Whey Protein optimizes glutathione levels for improved immune response. It inhibits growth of certain bacteria and viruses. Whey protein can be found in products such as ImmunePro, ImuPlus and Immunocal.
  • Natural Killer Cell Immunity
      Olive Leaf Extract has been used for centuries, but has recently been shown to kill pathogens that weaken the immune system. It has powerful anti-viral, anti-parasitic and anti-bacterial components.
      IP-6, naturally found in grains, works by boosting Natural Killer Cell function. NK cells are lymphocytes that attack foreign substances.
      MGN-3 has been tested at major universities for its immune-building properties. It has been shown to enhance NK cell function by 300%.

    Ginkgo Biloba is a powerful antioxidant best known for its ability to enhance circulation. By increasing the amount of oxygen delivered to the brain and heart, Ginkgo’s effectiveness is supported by more than 400 clinical and experimental studies.
    Acetyl L-Carnitine assists brain and nervous system function. It is a neuroprotective agent that supports mental function by stimulating acetylcholine production. It can help promote restoration of age-related membrane changes.
    Vitamin B-12 Methylcobalamin deficiencies can cause many neurological and psychological disorders such as loss of memory and exhaustion. Lack of coordination, weakness, and loss of muscle strength are also associated with deficiencies of this important nutrient.
    Vinpocetine, sometimes referred to as ‘Viagra for the brain,’ promotes memory stimulation by preventing impaired blood flow and the subsequent lack of oxygen that often is associated with dementia. It also helps prevent damage to the brain’s circuitry.

    Valerian Root was used by ancient Greeks as a sleep aid. It helps relieve insomnia and promotes relaxation. Lemon balm not only helps induce sleep and ease anxiety, it relieves muscle spasms and calms the nervous system.
    5-HTP increases the brain’s serotonin levels. Low serotonin can lead to insomnia, depression and headaches.Serotonin appears to play significant roles in sleep, emotional moods, and pain control.
    Kava Kava is an herb that many consider to be a natural alternative to Valium or Xanax. Containing Kavalactones, Kava Kava is a stress reducer and relaxant.
    Melatonin is a compound naturally produced by the pineal gland. It is an important hormone that plays a critical function in the sleep/wake cycle.

    SAM-e has been studied and used extensively in Europe, where it is prescribed to treat depression and has shown to be as effective as certain SSRI’s. SAM-e boasts a low incidence of side effects.
    St. John’s Wort is one of the most well researched of all the anti-depressant herbs. It has been used for over a century to alleviate anxiety and is considered a viable alternative for mild depression. (If taking prescription anti-depressants, check with a health care professional before taking St. John’s Wort.)

    Basic Nutrition
    Daily Multi-Vitamins are important because our diets contain many foods that are process, which removes the natural nutrients. A complete daily multi contains the essential vitamins and minerals our bodies need to maintain optimal health.
    Anti-oxidants are present in many fresh fruits and vegetables, but because of the way our food supplies are grown and processed, many of the anti-oxidants are gone by the time we get the food. Anti-oxidants help protect against damaging free radicals, which damage and misshape cells. Important anti-oxidants that should be part of daily health supplementation include: Vitamins A, C, E; L-glutathione; lycopene extract; N-acetyl Cysteine.
