After reading the link, the info in the link is not his "discovery", its just repackaged current knowledge and he claims to treat it. Realy doesnt look like hes claiming any new discovery. This really looks like functional medicine theory of whole body dysfunction. Its not necessarily a snake oil theory. Nothing I'd disagree with- its very complex and vague at the same time. Most of us have some form of whole body dysfunction at one time with lyme -some similarities with CFS....However, even some CFS is though to be triggered from EBV. And I dont see any infections listed in this link.there can be many........
from the link:
[....Written by Clinic Director, Ashok Gupta
...."I believe Unexplained Pain Syndromes and ME/CFS are conditions that have the same underlying cause. The good news is that it is possible to recover from pain syndromes, and we have had many people who have recovered using The Gupta Programme.
In a recent published study on ME/CFS & Fibromyalgia, over 90% of participants reported improvements, and two-thirds reached a full recovery."...]
So one third are not 100% recovered, similar stats to long term lymies after they tried many things.
If his treatment is somewhat multi stepped its not much different than what many have done here
If its several bottles of only a few supplements, than his treatment is prob "snake oil", but not the theory, which is not his theory at all, its been around a long time in functional medicine. Nothing realy new, just presented all together and packaged to look new. Good marketing LOL.
Detoxing, , gut support, adrenal support, minimizing stress and treating the infection- thats functional medicine for treating whole body dysfunctional illnesses. Its helps, but doesnt always cure. .Thats also the same lines of treatment most LLMDs will provide in treating lyme related symptoms/issues, in addition to ABX.
