Dr. Betty Keller
Rheumatology 35 years experience
Symptomatic: Treatment of cfs focuses on the relief of symptoms. Lifestyle changes, eating a healthy whole food based diet. Improved sleep habits, going to bed and getting up at the same time each day. Use of either supplements or medications to help improve the quality of sleep, energy and reduce pain, gradually increasing exercise, cognitive behavioral therapy, all can help.
Dr. Jack Mutnick

Chronic Fatigue: There is currently no cure for cfs. The goal of treatment is to relieve symptoms. Many people with cfs have depression and other psychological disorders that may improve with treatment. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/pmh0002224/.
