Ever the optimist, I saw the title of a Medscape article “A Revised Approach for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome” as a possible breakthrough in the treatment of this condition. After all, allopathic medicine does need a different approach than the drugs that form the basis of current treatment.
But once again I was disappointed because right off the bat the doctor said there is no cure but doctors should try to improve patients’ symptoms and quality of life with individualized treatment. CFS affects people differently so there is no standardized treatment for this condition; there will never be one cause of CFS and one drug that “cures” it. Individualized treatment means you line up a patient’s symptoms and apply a drug to each one. It’s a very unsuccessful treatment approach since it leads to more toxicity and nutrient deficiencies in these patients.
Here is an excerpt from my Magnesium Miracle (2017) outlining the way I treat CFS and Fibromyalgia with much greater success.
Treatment For Chronic Fatigue And Fibromyalgia
Diet and supplements should focus on building the immune system and the digestive system. In my experience, addressing yeast overgrowth and magnesium deficiency can result in overall improvement of about 70–80 percent in CFS and fibromyalgia. Further improvement comes from treating low thyroid, weakened adrenals, estrogen dominance, and heavy metal toxicity. For these conditions I recommend my ReMag, ReMyte and ReAline formulas.
Supplements For Chronic Fatigue And Fibromyalgia
* ReMag: With picometer, stabilized-ionic, non-laxative magnesium you can reach therapeutic amounts. Start with ¼ tsp (75 mg) and work up to 2-3 tsp (300-900 mg) per day. Add ReMag to a liter of water and sip all day to achieve full absorption. See Chapter 18 for more advice about magnesium supplementation.
* ReMag Spray – Transfer to a spray bottle – 8 sprays = 20 drops = 1 ml. Each drop contains 2.5 mg of stabilized ionic magnesium, so 8 sprays = 20 mg.
*ReMyte: Picometer, 12-Mineral Solution: ½ tsp three times a day or in a liter of water with ReMag and sipped through the day.
* ReCalcia: Picometer, stabilized ionic calcium, boron, vanadium. 1-2 tsp per day (1 tsp (300 mg calcium). Or get your daily 600 mg of calcium from dietary sources and/or bone broth or half from diet and half from ReCalcia. See Resources for more on ReCalcia, Appendix B for calcium food lists, and Appendix C for bone broth recipe.
* B Complex Plus – ReAline: 1 capsule twice per day (Contains: Food-based B1, 4 Methylated Bs: B2, B6, Methylfolate, B12, plus L-Methionine (precursor to glutathione) and L-Taurine, which supports the heart and weight loss).
* Vitamin C Complex: 200 mg 2x/da from a food-based source or make your own Liposomal Vitamin C. (See Appendix D for Liposomal Vitamin C Recipe.) And Ascorbic acid: 1,000 mg 2x/da.
* Vitamin D3: 1,000 IU or 20 minutes in the sun daily. Blue Ice Royal provides vitamin A, D, K2 from fermented cod liver oil and butter oil. Dosage: 1 capsule 2x/da.
