Chronic Fatigue Treatment & Precautions

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, also known as CFIDS (Chronic Fatigue Immunodeficiency syndrome), is a condition that has become widespread in the United States . Viruses such as Epstein Barr, Cytomegalovirus, mononucleosis, and herpes have often been associated with chronic fatigue. Some people feel that massive immunization campaigns, which are designed to eradicate communicable diseases, have weakened the immune system in some individuals rather than strengthen it, making it easier for viruses to cause diseases. Other causes may be the fungus Candida albicans, chronic mercury poisoning from dental amalgam fillings, heavy metals (e.g., lead, arsenic, and cadmium) from the environment, anemia, hypoglycemia, hypothyroidism, and sleep problems. All of these conditions can stress the immune system and lower your resistance to disease.

Some symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome are fever, sore throat, swollen lymph nodes, extreme fatigue, loss of appetite, night sweats, intestinal problems, anxiety, depression, mood swings, sleep disturbances, memory loss, inability to concentrate, headaches, and muscle and joint pains. CFS is not always easy to diagnose correctly because its symptoms resemble flu and other viral symptoms. Officially, a patient is considered to have CFS if fatigue persists for six months and is accompanied by eleven other chronic or recurrent symptoms. If you have elevated viral antibodies then an underlying viral component is suspected. In this case, antibiotics will not help.
Recommendations for prevention and treatment

1. void processed foods (e.g., as white flour), refined foods (e.g., as white sugar), and stimulants such as coffee, tea, and tobacco as these can all depress your immune system.

2. Make an effort to increase your consumption of water. Attempt to drink eight glasses of purified or reverse osmosis water daily.

3. Ensure that your bowels move at least once daily by increasing your fiber consumption in the form of fresh fruits and vegetables. Oat bran and psyllium husk are also good sources of fiber. Coffee enemas can be very helpful here, as well as for stimulating liver detoxification via bile production.

4. Check your thyroid function by measuring your basal body temperature. This is done by placing a thermometer under your arm for 10 minutes before arising from bed on two consecutive days. For menstruating women, this is best done at the beginning of the menstrual cycle. The average basal body temperature should be greater than 97.8 degrees. If not, a trial of natural thyroid should be considered.

5. Consider an evaluation for free radical damage from environmental pollutants such as lead, aluminum, cadmium, and mercury. If elevated, heavy metal detoxification therapy is indicated.

6. Supplement with antioxidants such as vitamins A, C, E, Bioflavonoids, and Coenzyme Q10, B-vitamins, magnesium, free-form amino acids, thymus gland, and acidophilus. Consider also using Proteolytic enzymes, DMG, and vitamin B12 injections. Chlorophyll in tablet or liquid (such as barley or wheat grass) is also helpful.

7. Herbal preparations from burdock root, dandelion, echinacea, goldenseal and pau d'arco all promote healing. These can be made in teas and combined or alternated daily.

8. Homeopathic nosode preparations, such as those made from viruses themselves, are particularly helpful. However, these must be obtained by prescription from a homeopathic physician. Other homeopathic remedies known to be helpful in fatigue include Carbo Vegetabilis, Cocculus, Ferrum Phosphoricum, and Phosphoric Acidum. Combination remedies can also be helpful, especially if they contain the substance (e.g, virus) identified as the possible source of infection and/or fatigue. Isode therapy (e.g., preparations made from the patient themselves) can also be very beneficial here.

9. Take sublingual fermented lactobacillus three times daily for immune stimulation.

10. Gentle skin detoxification through a medical spa with steam sauna, infrared sauna, and/or contrast shower.

11. In severe cases, get intravenous solutions for better and more complete response. There should include either vitamin C or amino acids or combinations of both.

12. Intramuscular injections can be helpful for the delivery of energy medicines (e.g., B5, B12, AMP, NADH). These can be given 1-2 times weekly.

13. Subcutaneous energy injections can be administered daily and can include not only some of the products mentioned in #12 above, but homeopathic preparations as well.
