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.
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.
