Researchers have linked myalgic encephalomyelitis or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) to gut bacteria and inflammatory microbial agents in blood.

CFS has for long been (elusively) related to stress and anxiety disorders but it might be that the problem is more corporeal than it first seemed. In fact, this could potentially prove that it’s not a psychological disorder at all.

Researchers from Cornell University have recognized CFS markers in the gut bacterial microbiome and correctly diagnosed the disease in 83% of patients through stool samples and blood work.

Does this open new ways to treat CFS? We believe so. As research on this affliction strengthens, we expect to see a somewhat tangible treatment plan not so far ahead in the future.

Chronic fatigue syndrome is in your gut, not your head:

Physicians have been mystified by chronic fatigue syndrome, a condition where normal exertion leads to debilitating fatigue that isn’t alleviated by rest. There are no known triggers, and diagnosis requires lengthy tests administered by an expert. Now, for the first time, researchers report they have identified biological markers of the disease in gut bacteria and inflammatory microbial agents in the blood. See full post here.
