Chronic fatigue is misinterpreted by many people today, simply stating those who suffer from the illness are being lazy individuals. This syndrome is characterized by severe tiredness but does not typically get better with rest. I think western society views this illness as something that can be cured mentally more than physically. People who suffer from the syndrome do not currently have some magic pill they can take to help them receive more energy and caffeine or other substitutes are not the answer to their issues. So from a biomedical standpoint there is no “easy cure” for chronic fatigue. Those who suffer can also tend to feel worse because society see’s them in a negative way, which leads to actually worsening their condition. If a person feels they are worthless, studies show they may in fact become worse because they mentally don’t think they can do anything. Tis makes management and treatment much more difficult. To treat this condition then, I believe it is about mentally preparing the person for a battle. Even when someone is tired, to push their body and show them they actually can complete a task would allow them to improve. I think a placebo in this case could be a great benefit. There can be negative side effects to taking many different kinds of pharmaceuticals to gain energy but telling a person they can become better after taking a pill or shot of a placebo may be beneficial. I would generally be against any type of surgery, even if it is a fake such as shown in the cracking the code video, but in this cause a false brain surgery may prove beneficial. If a surgeon can make an incision to the scalp and convince people that they have a neurological disorder that can be easily cured it may help, even if no such procedure is possible. I think a safer way to do this also may be in the type of shock therapy that is done in the video. If people receive some volts of electricity to their brain, the can be conditioned to think they are not physically tired when no true change has taken place. Person belief in healing is a great motivator, if not more, to make patients want to feel better leading to actually improvement.
