i am no expert, but have been doing alot of research into detoxing, do some research into lyme disease alot of similarities to chronic fatigue symptoms. herbs that help the body get rid of neurotoxins and toxins should help relieve some symptoms would be a good start as body doesnt work well or absorb nutrients when toxic. taking large doses of supplements will probably add to the problem. my girlfriend was on dr myhills regime for over 3 months no improvement at all felt alot worse the whole time. chlorella and activated charcoal has helped. she is on antibiotics at the moment and doctor told her not to take anything else at the moment. but the charcoal and chlorella do help when herxing bad. some of the herbs i have found that seem to be promising are burbur, parsley and pinella(i do have a bigger list but cant find note pad think its in bedroom, gf asleep) will get back to you. there is a product from a doctor jernigan called neuro antitox thats used in his Lyme protocol meant to help flush out toxins from brain and nerves. skin brushing is also good. colostrum will help get whole digestive tract healthy again also helps boost immune system and help you get better absorption from food. detox try and get liver, kidneys, lymph system and bowels as healthy and efficient as possible and good healthy food should help alot. good quality protein is essential for the amino acids and helps detoxing and repairing. Do some research tons of infomation out there its just piecing it all together. if your not bed bound and have an open mind look into chi kung. hope its helped

sorry just red your earlier posts. did you have IBS before you had chronic fatigue syndrome, or is it a symptom of the C.F.S.

i will try all of those thank you very much for all the suggestions :) as far as i know the IBS came before the chronic fatigue syndrome. the stomach trouble started probably around the time i was 12 and i hadn't noticed chronic fatigue like symptoms until four years ago (i'm 19 now) i really hope something works to help both :/

Hi, I take a B12 subligual tab for energy.  You dissolve it under your tongue so it goes directly into your bloodstream.  I do think it helps some & I also take a B complex vitamin.  I was just dx'd with ME/CFS so I am also looking for somekind of relief.  You hang in there & have a good day.  Hugs, Denise 

 I have:  Fibromyalgia, CFS, Holt-Oram Syndrome, nasal allergies, depression

Married to a wonderful supportive husband & between us we have 4 children & 7 grandchildren.

You will have to just try different stuff because I don't think we all have CFS for the exact same reason, or we are in the same stages where one size fits all. On some people its centered mainly in the Adrenals, some its high toxicity, some its toxicity and poor absorption for so long the organs have some damage, some its absorption for different reasons, some its oxygenation, some circulation, some liver stagnation, some mitocondria dysfuntion.

On adrenals I just shake my head when I see young people running around all day with Energy Drinks in their hands. Wanna blow out your adrenals and have anxiety syndrome and CFS by the time you hit 25 or less? Here's the perfect formula. Live on Energy Drinks, or Starbucks a few times a day will work also, and make your primary food groups, caffiene, guarana, sugar, big gulp sodas, the dough on the pizza and toppings. And remember, if its not fast food, its not really food.

When mine was mainly exhausted adrenals years ago, just taking a green super food drink and B-Complex worked fairly well. Now the greens barely effects it and B-Complex drives me up the wall. Now if I take very high amounts of Vitamin C in ascorbic acid and COQ10 I can impact it.

Years ago my lungs and heart were in better shape. I had a lower toxicity level. I could excercise and improve my adrenal response, lower my stress level and gain energy doing that.

I tried sublinqual B12 and I get a horrible case of restless leg syndrome, only the feeling is hitting my whole body. B12 might on the other hand be something you really need.

At your age I would personaly go with trying a good complex green super drink, B-Complex, a few grams of Vitamin C a day. But you should probably take some time to make sure your Intestines are probioticaly balanced and working well so you get the absorption. Your young enough they probably aren't gummed up, but they could be out of balance.

I thought I would mention, since there is already a thread on Dr. Myhill, that I broke down today and went and bought me a great big bottle of Vitamin C in ascorbic acid form, high absorption COQ10, and Acetyl - L Carnitine because I was tired of getting to work and feeling so worn out, and my brain so fogged up I can barely think and move around. So I took 300 milligrams of COQ10, 3000 milligrams of Ascorbic Acid and 1000 milligrams of Carnitine and it woke me right up. Now I have to do it again for afternoon. And I am going to try the Ribose thing because I have left ventricle hypertrophy and a hypertrophic septum, and Ribose has allot of evidence backing it up on helping to normalize heart function and increase circulation. As far as Ribose helping with ATP synthesis and increasing muscle endurance, I can't say.

I will let that statement stand on its own, since I stand by my previous post that says were not all in the exact same place for the exact same reasons. There is a whole bunch of things that can cause chronic fatigue and you can have mainly one, or up to several of them going on at once and if the Doctor can't find a reason and probably won't or they would be DXing something other then CFS, the individual has to play around until they find what works for them.

Bought the D-Ribose and Niaciniamide Myhill has in her formula.

So heres what I take now. Its a slightly modified version of Myhills protocol. I will tell you if it goes anywhere positive for me.

Ascorbic Acid - 3000 milligrams twice a day.
Greens Plus - 3 teaspoons in morning on empty stomach. Absorbs in about 30 minutes. There are lots of brands with similar formulas.
COQ 10 - 200 milligrams twice a day
Magnesium- As much as I can tolerate throughout the day, probably about 1500 milligrams total.
B-Complex 50's
Niacinamide 500 milligrams
L-Carnitine 1000 milligrams twice a day.
Acytel L Carnitine 500 milligrams twice a day.
D-Ribose 5000 milligrams 3 times a day.

I would say that is about 400 dollars a month out of a health store at least. You could probably cut that to 200 dollars if you bought it in bulk sizes off the Internet. If its a mitocondria, ATP slow recycleing problem and this doesn't help, I don't know what would.
