Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: Gastrointestinal Inflammation Is the Real Cause

By    |   Thursday, 07 January 2016 09:48 PM

Behind the debilitating exhaustion of chronic fatigue syndrome could be gastrointestinal inflammation.

Chronic fatigue syndrome refers to tiredness that is disabling, and its causes are not completely known, the National Center for Biotechnological Information said.

Physically, the first section of the small intestine becomes inflamed in patients with chronic fatigue syndrome, plagued by disease-fighting white blood cells, which indicate the immune system is attacking invaders, according to Health Rising.

Holistic Primary Care said patients with the syndrome have a gastrointestinal lining with a higher permeability, causing the immune system to become active.

Research found that patients with chronic fatigue syndrome have differences in gut flora, according to Medscape. They have lower levels of Bifidobacteria while the presence of aerobic bacteria increases.

Medscape noted microorganisms in the gut can communicate with the central nervous system, affecting emotional behaviors like depression and anxiety. Taking probiotics — the healthy bacteria in the body — has been shown to decrease stress levels and regulate mood.

Patients with chronic fatigue syndrome are also more likely to experience irritable bowel syndrome and similar symptoms, Medscape reported.

One study showed that those with chronic fatigue syndrome who took anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative drugs as well as going onto a diet to help with a “leaky gut” showed improvement in symptoms, Holistic Primary Care reported.

Correlation studies demonstrated a connection between leaky gut syndrome’s chronic inflammation and chronic fatigue syndrome, too, Alt-Med reported.

Many factors can deteriorate the lining of the gut. Experiencing stress, taking antibiotics, and being irritated with food sensitivities can increase the amount of toxins, waste, and microbes that pass into the bloodstream and instigate inflammation throughout the body, according to Holistic Primary Care.

Such inflammation created falsely by undigested food and pathogens leads to chronic fatigue syndrome, according to studies, Nutritional Ecological Environmental Delivery System reported. The immune system becomes overwhelmed, and the strength of the intestines’ outer barrier is put in danger and allows more toxins into the blood.

Amy Myers MD recommended drinking bone broth to help with a leaky gut in patients with chronic fatigue syndrome in order to get its nutrients and collagen.
