Chronic Fatigue Syndrome sufferers 'can overcome symptoms of ME with positive thinking and exercise'

Post by feelthelove on Wed Oct 28, 2015 7:50 am

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is not actually a chronic illness and sufferers can overcome symptoms by increasing exercise and thinking positively, Oxford University has found.

A landmark study which followed hundreds of sufferers for two years found that those who were encouraged to be more active and alter their mind-set suffered less fatigue and were able to cope with daily life more easily.

The condition, also known as ME and once dismissed as “Yuppie flu”, is a recognised illness which affects around 250,000 people in Britain.

Sufferers report extreme fatigue, joint pain, headaches and memory problems, but doctors still do not know the cause or cure.

But the new study found that graded exercise therapy (GET), in which sufferers gradually increase activity levels, as well as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), which encourages positive thinking and behaviour, had a dramatic impact.

Hmmmm this has long been a "questionable" illness.

I do know someone who suffers from this; he's a trustworthy guy and says it has real symptoms.

I do wonder though, that instead of taking to bed and resting, people would be better off going for a swim or some yoga sessions?

Is it that some people have lower pain threshold?

I do know that as a person that does do a fair bit of exercise, that when you're feeling your most achey, that's the best time to exercise!!

Breathing is good, deep intakes of breath on the night, then again in the early morning air, breathe in those metals nice a deep. You'll soon forget about feeling tired. I do it all the time. What was the subject again.
