In brief: No cure, only treat
After detailed questions, exam & tests have ruled out underlying cause for chronic fatigue, the goal becomes to control symptoms and improve day-to-day functioning.
Good nutrition, careful endurance exercise, aggressively managing stress & any other illnesses, support, planning, setting realistic expectations, and judicious use of medications are all part of living well with cfs.

In brief: CFS
Chronic fatigue syndrome may or may not be cured.
It is possible to manage it, though. You need to work with a doctor who has experience dealing with chronic fatigue syndrome. You could have hormonal imbalances including the sex hormones, adrenal hormones, and thyroid hormones, certain nutritional deficiencies, an immune system problem, heavy metal toxicity, and beyond. Very individual.
