Living With Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: Alternative Treatments

Alternative treatments such as yoga, stretching, and self-hypnosis can help people who are living with chronic fatigue syndrome. However, some alternative therapies for chronic fatigue syndrome, such as dietary supplements and herbal remedies, can do more harm than good. Therefore, patients should talk with their healthcare provider about alternative treatments prior to using them.
 
 

Living With Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: Psychotherapy

Having an illness for which there is no cure can cause psychological stress and depression for people living with chronic fatigue syndrome. It is normal to feel cranky, sad, angry, and frustrated with an illness that causes extreme fatigue and pain. Psychotherapy, also known as talk therapy, can help patients learn how to manage their feelings. Patients may find joining a support group to be helpful.
