Chronic Fatigue May Respond to Friendly Bacteria

Research shows that lactic acid bacteria may be effective in treating chronic fatigue syndrome. Lactic acid bacteria are often referred to as: probiotics, friendly bacteria, or good bacteria. The research shows that chronic fatigue patients had much more fecal E. coli that the control subjects. The control subjects also have a much higher percentage of friendly bacteria. The research also shows that pain and fatigue were associated with a high harmful bacteria count. The higher the count of harmful bacteria usually is associated with the more severe neurological and cognitive deficits, associated with nervousness, memory loss, forgetfulness, and confusion.

"Bacteria that are normally found in high numbers, such as bifidobacteria and lactobacilli (lactic acid bacteria), are involved in vitamin synthesis, stimulation of the immune response, prevention of pathogenic and opportunistic bacterial colonization, protection of the intestinal barrier defense system, production of short chain fatty acids for enterocyte energy, and metabolism of carcinogenic (cancer causing) substances." They also mentioned, "antibiotics have been shown to cause marked alterations in gut flora and can have long term effects on intestinal bifidobacteria. In the case of irritable bowel syndrome, prior antibiotic use appears to be a risk factor in the development of the illness".

Their research in both humans and animals also prove that emotional stress can be a negative factor, especially anger and fear. Bacteroides (an irregularly shaped bacterium) increased from 2-4 percent of the total bacteria and increase in the intestine from 20-30 percent.
