Hope you are all having a nice day.
My friend whom I've know for about 3 years suffers from ME/CFS. He has had it for 23 years since he was 16 and it seems there hasn't really been any remision period, he does say the last five years have been easier for him although he still has very difficult days very often, I cannot possibly imagine how it was for him before.
I am determined to finding a way to relieve his symptoms so he can live a happier life. I think he has missed out on so many things in life due to his condition, being mostly bedridden for years on end. I think his case is quite severe.
He says doctors haven't been too helpful throughout the years, so what I am looking for is making a plan to improvement.
Overall his symptoms are those of ME/CFS. Extreme exhaustation, brain fog, achy body, etc. He almost never has any energy to go outside his house. He also has low vitamin D levels and digestive issues, he actually says he feels a strange lump in his belly. He says his symptoms started when he was 16 as a flu, shortly after a visit to the USA.
I am open to the possibility that this might not be ME, but some other disease. Lyme disease has been suggested.
So I'm thinking he can go back to a doctor and get several tests done, probably some that show some sort of immune system imbalance, rather than some vitamins and stuff. I think this would also help him get the attention of doctors back again. I feel like he was brushed off by doctors back when he started having his symptoms as they couldn't find anything wrong with him.
I recently recommended to him drinking chlorophyll and taking magnesium pills. It's only been a few days since he started taking the chlorophyll but it seems he is reacting bad to it
I don't know of any other natural remedies that have worked for you guys?
Could things like meditation and yoga also help?
What oher things could you guys recommend for my friend?
Thanks in advance!
