5 Steps to Overcome Chronic Fatigue

5 Steps to Overcome Chronic Fatigue


Hi, I’m Jordan Rubin and welcome to Ancient
Medicine Today brought to you by draxe.com.
Today we’re going to tackle a topic that affects
millions of Americans, and I remember years
and years ago when chronic fatigue or chronic
fatigue syndrome came on the scene.
There are a lot of theories as to why.
Some people believe chronic fatigue is resulted
by Epstein-Barr Virus and a high titer.
Epstein-Barr is common in mono, mononucleosis.
So think about having mono long term.
You lack energy, you’re a little bit depressed,
some people have aches and pains.
But because chronic fatigue syndrome was not
considered by Western medicine a real disease,
it was often called the yuppie flu because
they believed that the wealthy were more likely
to have these symptoms.
But today, we know that chronic fatigue is
real as is chronic fatigue Immune Deficiency
Syndrome or CFIDS which can be so bad, the
symptoms can manifest similar to AIDS, Acquired
Immune Deficiency Syndrome.
So folks, this is serious.
This isn’t just waking up and needing some
coffee.
This is waking up and not wanting to get out
of bed day after day and constantly having
to pull yourself up off the ground and not
knowing why.
Well, today on Ancient Medicine, we’re going
to share with you five steps to overcome chronic
fatigue.
Now, mind you there are many great resources
and I want to encourage you to visit draxe.com
for more information and articles on these
specific recommendations.
But if you have chronic or even intermittent
fatigue, I bet you will benefit from these
five steps.
And as always, we want to encourage you, if
you love this information make sure to hit
that Like button and even more importantly,
punch that Share button so you can share this
message with those that need it.
Even if you’re not experiencing chronic fatigue,
we’ve all had times when we have as I said,
intermittent or episodic fatigue and these
are very important tools to transform your
health.
Let’s get started.
Number one, eliminate food sensitivities.
Now, there are certainly ways to get a food
sensitivity test, an ALCAT or ELISA test will
tell you what foods you are likely to be sensitive
to.
But in case you want results right now and
you don’t want to go get blood work, you don’t
want to do sort of an allergy or sensitivity
test, I want to tell you the top eight common
allergens to avoid that can really help you.
Looking on the screen you can see wheat and
dairy specifically the sticky protein in wheat,
gluten, and dairy, are at the top of the list,
as would be soy, eggs, fish, shellfish, peanuts
and tree nuts.
Those eight common allergens are responsible
for 91% of allergic reactions.
But, allergies that are really blatant are
not all we’re talking about.
Many people have underlying sensitivities
and you can have a reaction that is delayed
days later than when you’re dealing with antigen
exposure or consuming that food.
But listen, if you have chronic fatigue, start
by eliminating gluten, that would be any products
containing wheat, rye, and barley, and eliminate
dairy that contains A1 beta casein.
What is that?
It’s been called the devil in the milk and
it might be even worse than gluten.
So cow’s milk dairy, even if it’s raw and
grass-fed likely contains beta casein A1.
But you can consume goat milk or sheep milk
dairy or dairy product that is free of A1
beta casein or beta casein A1.
So if you can begin to eliminate food sensitivities,
go on a diet that allows your gut to heal.
Not only do I believe you will start to feel
better, but you can actually reverse some
of those sensitivities because I believe it’s
very much gut related.
Number two, when you deal with chronic fatigue
you want to increase vitamin B complex in
particular, vitamin B5 pantothenic acid is
important for the adrenals and the adrenals
are very much a player when it comes to chronic
fatigue.
Now, you want to increase B vitamin intake
in your diet.
Pictured there is salmon.
Meats are actually a great source of B vitamins,
red meat, dark meat, poultry, and salmon.
You can also take a fermented organic B vitamin
complex.
We know B12 is great for energy, B12 is great
for the brain, zinc is great for the immune
system which is a mineral you can add, B1
thiamine is good for energy.
We also as I mentioned, want to focus on B5
for the adrenals, B6 for metabolism.
So find a fermented organic B complex.
Eat foods rich in vitamin B. I know that I
mention nuts being an allergen, but if you
can consume seeds which are also rich in B
vitamins, sunflower, pumpkin etc, they are
typically less allergenic.
And when you have chronic fatigue, you want
to increase potassium and magnesium.
Potassium is found in green foods as is magnesium.
There’s a huge shortage in my mind of these
two important electrolytes, potassium, and
magnesium, and most people dealing with chronic
or even intermittent fatigue don’t get enough
of it.
So you want to consume more vegetables and
more fruits.
Potassium is also found in coconut water,
most veggie juices including celery, watermelons
are a great source of potassium, even dried
fruits, although they can be high in sugar
are a good source of potassium.
And of course, the banana we all know about
that.
But lower sugar sources of potassium you’d
find in green foods, other leafy vegetables,
in fact, every vegetable has a bunch of potassium
and even the sodium it has would be called
organically bound sodium.
Magnesium is found in green foods, certain
nuts and seeds, and you can find magnesium
in some animal products.
Also, of course, you can get potassium and
magnesium in high quality nutritional supplements,
but I believe diet is the best way to go.
So again, if you’re dealing with fatigue think
of electrolytes as energy, they are electrifying
your body in a good way because our body is
electric, and we run on that electrical current.
So get your potassium and magnesium up, it
will help flush excess sodium out of the system,
magnesium is great for your joints, it’s great
for your heart and it’s great for your brain.
Number four, bone broth.
Most people with chronic fatigue syndrome
and or fibromyalgia, are in need of a collagen
boost.
The amino acids, proline and glycine are great
for your connective tissue, also great for
your liver.
Another issue with chronic fatigue is that
typically there are low levels of glutathione
which is the body’s master antioxidant.
Earlier, I mentioned to avoid dairy with A1
beta casein.
There’s been a recent study that I absolutely
loved, that said dairy with A1 beta casein
or the devil in the milk, lower the body’s
glutathione levels, whereas, dairy from milk
that contained only A2 beta casein, that would
be goat milk, sheep milk or cow’s milk that
was specifically created or the cows were
bred to produce only A2 which is found in
mother’s milk, there was an increase in glutathione.
Bone broth and its glycine helps to create
glutathione in the body.
Also bone broth has glucosamine chondroitin
hyaluronic acid which helps you reduce inflammation.
Bone broth is also really soothing to the
gut, almost everyone I’ve met with chronic
fatigue has a gut issue.
So consume one to three servings of bone broth
a day, make it yourself.
There are recipes on draxe.com, or you can
buy fresh or frozen most likely, or even packaged
bone broth, make sure it’s real bone broth
at your health food store.
Or, consume a powdered bone broth protein
each and every day and you will love the results.
Now, folks, there are so many other great
tips that we won’t be sharing today, but let
me give you a quick little tidbit here.
Ashwagandha is a powerful herb, other herbs
and spices, holy basil, etc., are really great
for chronic fatigue particularly in supporting
the adrenals because almost everyone with
chronic fatigue has adrenal issues and needs
to boost the immune system in case they really
do have an excessive or high viral load.
Number five, probably the key to overcoming
chronic fatigue is to find peace, build peace,
and relax.
And it’s easier said than done, right?
I have found in my coaching people back to
health that when you’re dealing with chronic
fatigue and fibromyalgia, it often stems from
either toxic exposure or traumatic experience.
I believe that if you will begin to cultivate
peace, if you begin to claim some promises,
and I claim the promises of God, that you
are energized, you are filled with joy, read
scripture out loud, find a time to go outside
and walk barefoot if you’re near an ocean
do it on the beach.
Otherwise, do it in the grass at a park, that
will lower cortisol levels and help you with
peace.
Do things that you enjoy.
Folks, people with chronic fatigue are miserable
oftentimes, and they just don’t know exactly
why.
So building peace and allowing your body to
relax, fighting stress probably is the number
one recommendation to overcome chronic fatigue.
And I believe folks, if you’re watching today
dealing with chronic fatigue, even fibromyalgia,
or you’re just dealing with as I mentioned
episodic fatigue, there is hope.
In fact, that’s why we’re here.

So many moms, so many executives, even athletes
are dealing with chronic fatigue and now we
see children and teenagers.
We want to overcome chronic fatigue starting
with these five simple steps.
Eliminate food sensitivities, that is something
that you can easily do if you’re willing to
do it.
Remember, start with gluten and dairy which
is a great help for your gut and for your
antioxidant levels.
Increase your B complex vitamins through diet
and supplementation with an organic fermented
B vitamin, you want to increase the electrolytes,
potassium and magnesium found in vegetables,
fruits, and bone broth.
And speaking of bone broth, consuming bone
broth helps build electrolytes, boost your
immune system and can help reduce inflammation.
Get it each and every day.
And last but not least, build peace and relax.
Find your center.
Whether it’s listening to worship music, maybe
it’s listening to classical music, maybe it
is as I mentioned, walking outside in the
grass or on the beach.
This is powerful and it’s a way to reduce
cortisol, reduce stress, and transform your
health.

  • Did he just imply CFS is all in your mind? How dare you! Find some peace? "These people are often miserable and don't know why? "Where the hell are you getting this? Pull out the damn research! How dare you! Go talk to Dr Judy Mikovits and tell her you believe it's coming from emotions. How about not getting injected with a mouse retrovirus! How about learning about the original outbreaks in CA. You are doing NO ONE a service by finishing this video off with your "beliefs" instead of relying on facts.

  • Fatigue ? Check out actual iron level !!!

    Suggestion ! LOW IRON RANGE TOO WIDE !

    Fatigue can be caused by many things including low iron. Problem is that the 'normal range' for normal iron is too wide. Ie 13 to 220, so that if you have a reading of 14, some doctors will say, you are 'normal'.

    Low iron ? Symptoms include depression, lack of energy.

    To restore iron, may take weeks, or months.

    Vegetarians are at higher risk.
    Drinking black tea is another high risk.

    Research by Capital T. Consultants, the researchers who discovered 'anti+truths', how truths can lie.
    Research sponsored by Squitti's.

  • I have SEVERE chronic fatigue as a result of an attack of Guillain Barre Syndrome 2 years ago. I have tried everything to cure it. Nothing has helped. (The thought is that the damaged nerves are causing the fatigue). Anyone have any experience like this? I am desperate for a solution…

  • Food alergy tests are not covered by insurance. So if you have $500 laying around you can get tested. Yep Jordan it is serious. I'm glad you are making millions off us.

  • If it boosts energy so much then why is Ashwaghanda also called Whitania SOMNIFERA? (which, as you probably already know means it brings sleep, in Latin). In my case I have no problems with my sleeping patterns (if it's about promoting good night sleep so that the fatigue is gone the next morning) and yet I do feel tired all day and i speak very slowly because of my lack of energy.

  • I'm in bed right now 1:30 just had barely enough energy to make breakfast and I'm so darn sleepy all day long it's not until my third meal that I even have a little bit of energy to shower and then it's back to bed….
    It feels like it's a little bit more complex than what the video is representing it seems like there's some kind of a shutdown in my brain that just doesn't want to wake up.
    And then having an immune system that catches things very easily.
    The digestive system is definitely affected and my heart is getting weaker and weaker from all this laying around.

  • Oh my God I have to give up Dairy that means no more cheese no more almonds and walnuts??? What to eat for breakfast??? No eggs?

  • I have many other health issues including gastroparesis. I have a hard time knowing what foods make me sick because it coukd be days b4 it goes through my body

  • 1. Remove foods that you are sensitive to / have allergies to.
    2. Increase b vitamins, esp b5.
    3. Increase potassium and magnesium intake.
    4. Bone broth (collagen boost), proline and glycine, increases gluthatione(?)
    5. Find peace and relax.

    I would add the iodine protocol, vit d and k2.

  • I have found this very interesting and helpful…however it left me " wanting " more detailed information…This could be Part 1…I want to know more in the area of B complex, how many mg of what B's ect things like that…I am willing to go out and get what I need for a daily routine…so how about some more details…LOL

  • CFIDS people primarily need to get rid of the offending virus (XRMV, etc) by using a Beck blood purifier. If you just have normal CFS then follow this videos instructions to remove the offending heavy metals and balance the gut flora. How do you know which type of CFS you have? CFIDS feels like a constant low grade flu and the accompanying tiredness. CFS is just tiredness.

  • It seems to me that you are confusing Chronic Fatigue with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. They are two very different things. There is no "cure" for CFS. You simple treat the symptoms. And while changing your diet & your mindset may help alleviate certain aspects of it, you don't necessarily get better. I am disappointed in this type of misinformation.

  • This is so far out of touch with the latest medical insights into the condition at Stanford and other research facilities around the US.
    NOTHING he recommends will heal you from ME/CFS. Some things might every so slightly limit symptoms.
    At least he did not promote graded exercise therapy.
    This guy has done no reach and then makes all kind of feel good promises. To bad there is Fake News in political discussions it does not belong in medical advice.

  • I feel like there is a misperception in this video when you say "people with chronic fatigue are miserable, they don't want to get out of bed and they don't know why". I think you are confusing chronic fatigue with depression. I both depression and chronic fatigue (fatigue was from chemotherapy and not trauma). I can tell the difference between my tiredness from my depression vs tiredness from my chronic fatigue. Tiredness from depression is when I don't want to get out of bed and face the world. Where I become too lazy to do anything and I don't know why.
    Chronic fatigue however, is when I want to go to the gym, then work, then see my friends, but however cannot because my body holds me back. It is not being able to have a normal job because long hours kill my brain, unable to study for over an hour because my brain shuts down, not being able to do too many things with my week otherwise my body starts having flu like symptoms to warn me to stop overworking it. And if I dont listen to the warning signs, I do infact get sick.
    there is a HUGE difference between depression tiredness & chronic fatigue tiredness, and what is described in this video is depression.

  • Chronic Fatigue can be caused by doctors who give you antibiojtics namely Cipro, Levaquin and Avelox. DO NOT take these drugs unless you have tried all other antibiotics and are on your death bed.

  • What do you not understand!? If I don´t have the energy to get out of bed how can you say I should take me to the beach or fix all this fantastic food!? And something witch is chronic you can´t fix so maby you should explain there is no chronical illnesses in the first place! I understand that you don´t suffer of theese syndrome yourself!!!

  • I was recently diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and I'm tired alot. So frustrating and depressing at the same time.

  • I have been diagnosed as experiencing symptoms from both chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia. These symptoms vary moment by moment. I am trying to learn as much as I can in order to make informed decisions, improve my health and grow. If anyone has any ideas or information can you please leave a comment. Thank you for this video

  • I am in bed. Been here for days. I just want to sleep. Been tring for years to get this under controle. I have done all the tips and advice and have spent enough money I could have a second home.

  • I’ve been on my couch all day, unable to accomplish even the simplest of tasks. Now I’m here. Really hope this helps…

  • The best treatment that worked for me was to do kegel exercise 10 times a day. I also suffered from excessive lack of energy for more than 5years.

  • We don't have to go carnivore? I'm going to try for a baby in a month from now and been trying carnivore to combat CFS and recurring miscarriages. One week in, I'm more tired than ever and sick at the sight of meat and eggs, but its the only diet I haven't tried…

  • Love that you are aware of the spiritual and mental part and mentioned God and thoughts. It’s the MOST missed component of healing.
