I suffered from the same illness for several years. For 4 years I tried supplements and remedies. I felt better but not good. For 2 years I tried raw vegan. I felt good but weak. Then I added 8% non-denatured microfiltered whey protein isolate. Today my body feels like an eagle gliding and my brain thinks like a supercomputor. Every day I walk 10 miles. The good news is there is a solution. The bad news is that only the complete program is effective. I am going to tell you exactly what you must do to solve the problem, but first i'm going to tell you what the problem is. When people eat improperly cooked and processed food from big agra the cells become weak. Then the bad guys move in, yeasts, funguses, parasites, viruses, and bacteria. That is what is causing all these degenerative illnesses. The world should not take global warming lightly and you should not take this lightly either. Get all the superfoods at wholesale prices on the internet. Take 14 grams hawaiin spirulina, 6 grams thin cell wall chlorella, 10 grams non defatted dessicated liver, 30 grams raw organic cocoa powder, 30 grams nondenatured microfiltered whey protein isolate, 10 grams absorbable colostrum, 1 oz. organic tomato paste, and 60 grams of non gmo red miso. Add 2 gallons of spring, filtered, or purified water, 2 grams 90,000 hu cayenne, 4 grams dead sea salt, and 400 grams of organic sucanet. Every hour drink 1 pint with 1/2 tsp. of flax oil and 1/2 tsp of coconut oil. 4 times a day take 1 ml. of raw fermented skate liver oil. Take this and you shall feel absolutely wonderfull all the time.
I tried many things for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome that did not work. D-Ribose was one of them.
Things that did work: Coconut oil, eliminating fluoride, iodine, bed rest, Ted's borax advice (baking soda/sea salt/selenium/ACV or lemon/lime that go with the borax too).
One thing that worked that really surprised me was a liver detox. I used both NAC and milk thistle for two months, and then did one of those hokey sounding apple juice/grapefruit juice/olive oil liver and gallbladder fasts/ cleanses along with water enemas for two days. I felt so much better a few days or a week after the fast/cleanse that I felt like a different person so will do one again soon. It may be hokey but it worked. I'd done one about 12 years ago when I was in my early 30's (before I got sick/disabled) and didn't think it helped me then.
You can find references to all of these things on earthclinic.
Oh, and one more thing, before I got better, the thing that launched me into kidney and liver cleansing was severe, acute abdominal pain that an MRI showed out to be benign cysts on my kidneys and an infection above my kidneys. It wasn't kidney stones or gallstones but I felt the area needed some help. That happened about 4.5 months after starting the borax and Lugol's, and about 5 weeks after starting the NAC. I was feeling so much improved in my CFS at that time that I suspected that the general virus/infection/cause of my CFS came to a head in the form of this infection, which I have since healed from. After recovering from this infection, I was almost back to feeling like a normal person again. (After 7 years of disabling CFS that took my life from me.)
In September I started using some remedies from earthclinic for a 20 year CFS/pain condition, and kidney/liver lesions. The remedies I take are: 1/4 tea. borax & some drops of H202 in water, chorella, B complex, amino acids, & BS in 1/2 glass of water with citric acid. I take these five days a week. I also use borax in the bath daily. This program has been adjusted and I will continue to do so, but I really wanted to write about a major change in my health: anxiety is gone! and most of the kidney pain too! It takes time, it takes alot of reading, it takes a willingness to change diet, lifestyle and our conditioned beliefs, but these remedies have been the best thing to help me....and until I found earthclinic, I had tried it 'all'. I am no longer a slave to untreatable diseases from doctors, or dependent on expensive naturalpaths. Let's not just 'thank Ted'....let's 'show' him our appreciation.
