Feeling Stressed? Reset with Your Breathing

Feeling Stressed? Reset with Your BreathingBy Albert Vaca, L.Ac.

Ask Dr. MaoQ: I'm wondering if I might have chronic fatigue syndrome. What is CFS and how can it be diagnosed? Also, what foods would you recommend for someone who suffers from CFS, or simply wants to improve their energy?

Currently, there are no definite tests for diagnosis. Your healthcare provider may make a diagnosis based on the symptoms alone. But if you suspect that you may be suffering from CFS, you need to discuss it with your medical doctor or seek help from a qualified alternative medicine practitioner.
