My clinic's experience with CFS patients ranges from lifestyle, nutrition, psychology and more. Working with a team of 20 practitioners has helped us gather vital information regarding ways to manage symptoms of CFS. Nutritionists in the clinic say that finding the right diet and nutritional choices can be frustrating in the diagnosing of Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia process. Nowadays, there are so many blogs, books, even ‘experts’ who claim to have the answer for living with these conditions. However it’s very difficult to follow said plans as each individual’s journey is different for another’s – so what will work for one, may not necessarily work for you. 


With intolerances, medical history, sensitivities thrown in the mix, you may be wondering, “What actually works for me and CF? What foods will help me and my symptoms?”



Ultimately, there are some basic dietary guidelines for everyone, including:

What You'll Need

  • Plenty of fruit and vegetables
  • Low grains
  • Good quality protein from animal, fish or vegetarian sources
  • A good proportion of unsaturated fat

What You'll Do

  • Work with your medical professional to help decipher where you lie on the spectrum – what is different for everyone is the proportion of proteins and fats versus carbohydrates that are necessary for feeling healthy. This is an important part of diagnosing Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and helping one to feel better.
