In brief: 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.
