So what should ME/CFS patients do to support our immune systems? From my perspective, it’s hard to find definitive information unless it’s followed by an ad for the recommended product. At one extreme are the recognized research groups who won’t commit to anything specific. At the other extreme are the passionate semi-scientific articles extolling the virtues of a ‘total solution’ product. ME/CFS patients find it difficult to sift thru all of this when so much is at stake and brain fog is dulling one’s judgments.
Here’s a link to an article from Harvard Medical School “How to Boost Your Immune System.” It’s couched but ultimately informative. And it gets us into the supplement discussion again. For me, eating healthy food loaded with nutrients and getting REM sleep were the highest priority in my efforts to support my immune system as I was working to defeat CFS.
