Many researchers believe that a primary sleep disorder lies at the root of ME/ Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and even Fibromyalgia. In fact, ME/ Chronic Fatigue Syndrome specialists believe that treating the sleep disorder is the most important part of treating the condition:

You Need To Sleep If You Want To Heal...

When you have ME/ Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and/or Fibromyalgia, a primary sleep disorder may be playing a large role in reaping havoc with your health. After all, sleep is vital to your wellbeing...

We all know how horrid we feel when we've not had enough sleep the night before. A good night's sleep can help with all manner of ailments, stresses, and strains. And a recurring good night's sleep can help us to feel in tip-top condition.

Indeed, when we have good quality sleep, we heal, we rest, and we (generally) wake up feeling revitalized and refreshed. But if you have a sleep disorder, then chances are, you'll probably be feeling the opposite. So your lack of good quality sleep could well be contributing to why you feel the way you do.

It's also worth noting that not all sleep is equal. For example, you may have hypersomnia and sleep for 20 hours a day - but that doesn't count for much if your sleep isn't of a good quality.

So why is sleep necessary for healing?
