I have this tip from the Chinese doctor who put me on Chinese herbs. But this actually works (unlike the mercury-laced Chinese herbs):

Every two hours, close your eyes for exactly 5 minutes. Set a timer. You can be anywhere, even in the bathroom, but do it sitting or lying down. I try doing it every hour. It does help fatigue.

And here is today's newsletter from Dr. Weil on fatigue (the article is also copied and pasted below):


A healthy diet can help the body in its efforts to heal itself, and in some cases, particular foods can lessen the symptoms. To help reduce the effects of chronic fatigue syndrome (such as debilitating fatigue, impaired memory, sore throat, muscle or joint pain, headaches and other maladies), try the following:

1. Decrease your protein intake to 10 percent of your daily calories. You may find opting for plant-based protein helps you get to this level without leaving you hungry.

2. Eat a wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables (preferably organic) for their protective phytochemicals.

3. Eat garlic regularly for its antibiotic effects.

4. Incorporate immune-enhancing mushrooms into meals, including shiitake, oyster, enokidake and maitake mushrooms.

I was going to say, um didn't we talk about that Chinese Dr you had IFwczs 🤔🤣

Those are great ideas! Keeping track of what you eat is a good thing. 🤗💕


Haven't tried closing my eyes, but the diet described works for me. And I make a mean mushroom skillet with like 6 or 7 mushrooms from the asian market by me. Small amounts of meat or fish.... (protein) and lots of veggies. And lots of garlic. That's how I cook and eat. I attribute my success to my diet, and it sounds like that. Just add in eliminate processed.

❤️This! I agree. I’ve been making stready changes including the elimination/severe reduction of sugar, gluten, processed foods and dairy. I don’t care of mushrooms and I’m a vegetarian trying to be more vegan! Thanks!

Yes..diet is key with treatment for MS. Im on a restrictive diet that works with my blood type for inflammation. I was vegan but was told by a nutritionist to stop, I must eat meat! Incorporated with certain veggies & some fruits. Not all are good for me apparently. No gluten, no diary, wheat or corn products either. I have energy back and still take nerve pain meds & on infusion therapy for the MS. Rest and meditate daily. Thanks for the info on Chinese herbs...everything helps!
