    • Ana many people that deal with chronic fatigue experience relief with a diet of 50 percent raw foods and fresh “live” juices. You may want to consult you doctor about trying a diet of mostly , fruits, whole grains, seeds, nuts and deep water fish. Also with chlorophyll helps me immensely during an autoimmune flare. I take chlorella daily and drink or Amazing Grass green drinks. Hope you feel better.

  1. It’s so nice to know that some of my favorite things can help get rid of fatigue, I had no idea avocados can do that. I love avocados on my sandwich. And I love snacking on oats and blueberries too!
