Yoga & Tai Chi/chronic fatigue syndrome


I suffer from chronic fatigue syndrome. My age is 24 years. My main symptoms are extreme tiredness particularly mental fatigue such that I cannot study at all even reading a newspaper seems a very arduous task for me although physically I feel better since I used to go for walk around 30 minutes daily. Also I have late night sleep problem taking really very long to sleep at night. If I go to sleep around 11:00 pm, it takes almost 2:00 am to sleep and I woke up around 10:00 am morning daily making me very hard to wake up early in the morning. I am currently under homeopathic medication which slightly alleviates my symptoms. Can you suggest me some yogas to help improve my mental fatigue and sleep problems?

Hi Mitchell,
Surya Namaskar(3 cycles), and pranayams such as kapalbhati (20 repetitions), Bhastrika 20 repetitions), Anulome-vilome (10 cycles) and Bhramari Pranayam (10 repetitions) will be beneficial for you. Do regularly these empty stomach morning and evening daily.
Also take Almonds 6 pieces daily in breakfast and at bedtime.
