Can latex foam help with fatigue?

Fatigue and Latex

Fatigue in the clinical sense refers to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and is not classified as a disease, but rather attempts to describe the condition that results from any combination of factors including aching muscles and joints, anxiety, depression, difficulty concentrating, poor memory, fever, headaches, low blood pressure, intestinal problems and pain, irritability, environmental sensitivities, jaundice, loss of appetite, mood swings, muscle spasms, night sweats and more. Any or all of these symptoms can drastically weaken the immune system, and while it is not necessarily life-threatening, it cannot be cured. This is because each symptom must be addressed individually, and this is where new technology foam products can help, particularly in reference to latex foam (although memory foam and polyurethane foam can also certainly help). Natural latex foam is the milky sap of the rubber tree, Hevea brasiliensis. This natural latex rubber is produced in Africa, South Asia, South America, Indonesia and Sri Lanka, where trees are tapped for latex by cutting a spiral groove in the bark and placing a spout and collection cup at the base. This natural latex rubber is then molded into remarkable bedding products like a latex mattress, or a latex pillow. This material can be particularly helpful for individuals interested in reducing sub-symptoms of CFS such as aching muscles and joints. For people suffering from physical discomfort in the bedroom, products such as latex foam toppers, pillows and mattresses might be worth exploring.
