How can yoga and meditation help Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)?

People with CFS suffer from profound fatigue that no amount of sleep can relieve!

They also have any number of other symptoms that include weakness, muscle pain, impaired memory or mental concentration, insomnia and post-exertion fatigue. CFS appears to affect multiple systems within the body including the immune system, nervous system and hormones. Bouts of CFS can last for 6 months or years.

In addition to being debilitating, CFS can be a frustrating disorder to diagnose. A decade or so ago when doctors knew little about CFS getting the diagnosis could in itself be an exercise in aggravation.
