I had a hard time CFS symptoms for about
three years and gained abut 30 pounds because exercise of any kind wiped me out for days. The crushing fatigue was strange because I felt it even lying down, as if there was no escape. And while CFS is a diagnosis of exclusion, I ran the course and was finally diagnosed as such.
I know there are many of your, perhaps most, who have had it far worse and for far longer. Nevertheless I ask you to please investigate what I'm about
to say. I found a Los Angles MD attached to UCLA who claims he can put this disease into remission. Not cure it, just eliminate the symptoms. His name is Paul St. Amand. He uses the Guaifinision protocol. Why that is not mentioned here is surprising because I've been 90% symptom free now for 10 years, as well as people I've sent to him.
There was a scientific trial done on his protocol and unfortunately it did not show scientific significance. So the medical community just walled away. As scientists you can't blame them. However, I'm telling those of you who will look into this that this guy is on to something.
St. Amand is quite convinced that CFS and Fibro are the same disease. That's why it's called the Fibro treatment center. Same disease though. If you have one the have the other.
When I try and talk to people who have tried everything and suffered for a long time they have usually given up and essentially ignore me. I understand. This is for those who are still looking for hope. What do you have to loose?
