Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, once referred to as the "Yuppie Flu", was considered a "fad" or "designer condition" characterized by "malingering." This was in part due to vague and misunderstood symptoms. CFS is now recognized and defined by the Center for Disease Control as an "unexplained persistent or relapsing chronic fatigue that is not new or having a definite onset…and is not substantially alleviated by rest..." Like any disease that exhibits inconsistent symptoms, a patient is often told "It's all in your head." To make matters worse, CFS resembles many other disorders ranging from Multiple Sclerosis to Lyme Disease thus making diagnosis and treatment a "hit or miss" proposition at best.

There have been many hypotheses put forth regarding cause which include thyroid, hormone, viral, parasitic, environmental toxins and nutritional deficiencies. Medical treatments range from antivirals to chelation therapy and have mixed results mainly due to the inability of physicians to isolate a specific cause and/or consider alternatives.

Our position is that CFS cannot be "lumped" into a single category and must be approached without any preconceived notions on the part of the researcher or physician. In our experience clients with CFS exhibit several observable factors (see vital hematology) in their blood which include, but are not limited to, severe free radical damage, bacteria, worms (e.g. spirochetes), chemical toxicity, candidiasis and hormone imbalances to name a few.

One must consider the four causes of disease: chemical toxins, diet, emotions (such as stress) and radiation (including microwave transmissions and high tension power lines). (For information regarding radiation and disease see The Body Electric by Dr. Robert Becker available from Barnes and Noble ).

By eliminating as many of these factors as possible from the CFS patient's external and internal environment and augmenting the client's diet with specific nutritionals, we have had a very high rate of success and reduction in pain and fatigue.

For a starting point (without access to Vital Hematology) we recommend at least OPC-165™, Sovereign Silver™, Probiotics and Alpha Factor. Usual OPC-165™ recommendations are 1 mg per pound of body weight, but the CFS sufferer should consider a saturation dose of 3 to 4 times that amount. 30 years of research indicates no toxic effects in dosages as high as 12,000 mg. per day and the recommended dosage of 500 to 550 mg of OPC's is well tolerated by our clients. Forever Young dosage should be from 2-3 capsules per day.

Note: Be sure to read the booklets, “Colloidal Silver”, and, especially Alpha Factor (bovine colostrum) – “not just for babies anymore”!
