Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
And Bacterial Infections

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome And Bacterial Infections. Fight them with Probiotics People who suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or CFS, tend to be more susceptible to bacterial infections than those in the general population.

Bacterial infections are sometimes proposed as a possible cause of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

These include such infections as tick-borne bacterial diseases such as Lyme disease, Q fever and Rickettsia as well as other bacterial infections such as the sexually transmitted disease chlamydia, brucella and mycoplasma.

Sometimes food-borne bacterial infections are believed to cause CFS and these include such conditions as E coli, Campylobacter jejuni, salmonella, Clostridium botulism, shigella, cholera and ciguatera.

But that is not all. Other known food-borne bacterial infections include Listeria monocytogenes, toxoplasma, and Yersinia enterocolitica.

There really is such a thing as good bacteria and good bacteria is especially beneficial for those who suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome as it strengthens the functioning of the digestive system and the end result is less digestive related problems.

Good bacteria readily live and thrives in the intestines and the vagina where they protect against the invasion of and growth of bad bacteria that can cause infections and disease. Good bacteria also serves another useful function- it creates lactase which is an enzyme found in the body that makes it possible for lactose or milk sugar to be broken down into simple sugars that the body can digest.

The term "lactose intolerant" describes individuals whose bodies do not produce the enzyme lactase and therefore could greatly benefit from taking a probiotic supplement.

Taking a Lactobacillus Acidophilus supplement is also recommended after taking a supply of antibiotics to get rid of an infection because not only do antibiotics get rid of the infection causing bacteria but they also kill off some good bacteria as well.
