Internist warns of “exhaustion epidemic”

Consult an anti-aging doctor about chronic fatigue syndrome.

Do you constantly feel tired, to the point that it is clearly affecting your everyday life? If so, you may be one of the hundreds of thousands of Americans who suffer from a condition known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). This ailment has become increasingly widespread across the country, outpacing AIDS, Multiple Sclerosis and lung cancer combined. However, most people who suffer from it don't even realize something is wrong.

Recently,  Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum – a licensed physician and internist – addressed this issue in a segment for the CBS affiliate in New York. According to Dr.Teitelbaum "31 percent of Americans chronically fatigue," thanks in part to a standard diet loaded with "sugar, white flour and fat." Though not all of these individuals suffer from CFS, they may be well on their way to developing this condition if they don't take steps to adjust their lifestyle.

To counter what he refers to as an "exhaustion epidemic," Dr. Teitelbaum says that many people may benefit from addressing the following: sleep, hormones, immunity, nutrition and exercise. As a part of this protocol, which he calls SHINE, the anti-aging doctor says it is essential to make sleep more of a priority, and to see a specialist about any hormone deficiencies you may be experiencing.

In addition, altering your diet and incorporating supplements that boost your immune system and promote your overall aging longevity may also help you feel more energized. Finally, taking the time to exercise – even if it's just a half hour of cardio a day – may keep you from constantly feeling worn down.
