Multiple Remedies for Chronic Fatigue

I am still fighting the good fight against chronic fatigue of unknown origin. This is what has helped me. I learned much of this from the various naturopaths I have worked with.

1. I try to support my body's HEALING as much as possible. I do this with pacing/rest, by improving my sleep, getting as good nutrition as possible, reducing stress. With regards to my sleep, I switch off the electricity to my bedroom at night *at the fuse box* to reduce appliance hum and also turn wifi off. I find I get much better sleep this way! I also use mute rings and a special mouth guard designed to keep my airways open at night. I also don't watch TV within 1-2 hours of bedtime, and I get to sleep much earlier now and it's more restorative.

2. I try to be very mindful of my ENERGY ENVELOPE and always remain within it. This means I minimize standing, I pace my chores and activities (even socializing, which I can find tiring). I can do a bit of exercise, but I tolerate weight-bearing exercises better than aerobic exercise.

3. I have worked to support my LIVER HEALTH. This means I cut way back on alcohol. I frequently eat dragon fruit, which has liver-supporting properties, and I take milk thistle regularly. I also drink dandelion tea occasionally. And I minimize prescription medications and am mindful of the amount of supplements I take.

4. I avoid TOXINS as much as possible. This means I buy as high-quality food as I can afford, especially for foods that tend to be ‘dirtier' or more moldy (for example, nuts and “Dirty Dozen” fruits and vegetables, which I try to get organic). I avoid fluoride (to the point of avoiding fluoridated toothpastes and not allowing my dentist to put a fluoride treatment on my teeth, etc.). I have tested the water where I live and luckily it is pretty clean, but otherwise I would be looking into bottled water. I use a sauna whenever possible to aid detoxification via sweat. I avoid walking in high vehicular-traffic areas to avoid pollution. And, VERY, VERY, VERY important, I avoid mold in the environment at all costs!!! That means, keeping your house clean, dry, and well-maintained as possible and looking for hidden sources of mold. In my opinion, if you are having breathing problems, you should consider that the source *could* be mold in your environment.

5. I have focused on GUT HEALTH AND NUTRITION. At the advice of a naturopath, I have treated for both leaky gut and candida. Supplements like marshmallow and garlic oil have helped, as well as herbal drops used for parasitic infections (some of which have anti-candida properties). (For a long time I avoided a long list of foods that were causing sensitivities, but nowadays I tolerate most foods much better.) To enhance vitamin absorption, I do juicing now and again. I also eat a food product, Acai Energy, which contains guarana and never fails to give me an energy boost when I need it.

6. I have been tested for basic VITAMIN DEFICIENCIES and have been told to supplement with B12 (I use a methylated version), iron, and D.

7. I keep a SYMPTOM DIARY to determine if there are patterns I can identify on my good days and my bad days (for example, foods I eat, supplements I've taken, etc.)

8. I stay aware of the MIND-BODY CONNECTION. I try not to get *too* mired in negativity. I work on things like vision boards to inspire my hope and healing. And I say health affirmations like “my body is wise and is healing itself, I get better every day, ” etc. And rather than say things (out loud or to myself) like, “I'm so sick” or “I'm not better” I try to say “I'm not better YET, ” or “I've been sick but hopefully not for much longer, ” etc. I do believe our language matters.

9. I do believe there can be a link between chronic fatigue and CERVICAL INSTABILITY. I did have a neck injury around the time I developed CFS. I avoid many movements and exercises that cause my migraines to flare up and I see an osteopath who has helped treat the migraines that I was having daily for years. (If you aren't familiar with osteopaths, they are wonderful! )

There has been no magic bullet for me thus far. However, I have improved slowly. The body is a miraculous thing, and with the right support, I hope to be able to heal. So, my advice is, look at the air you breathe, the food you drink, the mold in your environment, the nutrients in your food (and wehther or not you are aborbing them), the ways you can add to detoxification, etc. ALL of these things will relieve the burden on your body, allowing it greater ability to heal. I wish that everyone had access to all of the funds and support that they need to pursue all of these avenues, but we all just have to do the best we can. Knowledge is power and there is a lot of great information on the internet. All the best to you xx

I have read, that sodium clay leaches calcium out and that is why calcium bentonite clay is preferable (something like cardio calcium EDTA is more advisable for cardio heavy metal chelation that sodium EDTA). Some thoughts on this?

Hi James,

I read about this many years ago in Julia Shoepick's best seller, “Honest Medicine.” It may be of interest and has been noted above.

https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/neurology_neurosurgery/centers_clinics/epilepsy/diet-therapy.html. I noticed they also offer it at The Cleveland Clinic, and probably other medical facilities.

Best wishes.

Hi Tom (83), do you mean 1,000mg not 100mg. Capsules available are usually 180mg each, and not cheap at all.

Hydrogen Peroxide in Nebulizer + for Lung Cancer

Don't take the hydrogen peroxide orally use a nebulizer. Try 3 ml to start start with and then adjust by diluting with water if it seems too strong or work your way up to a higher ml if you can tolerate it well. Continue six 6 times daily for six months then be reevaluated. After a year the nodule on my lung had not progressed.

I did the same thing at the same time using 3 ml of baking soda mixed with 3 ml 20 mule team borax (never use boric acid) in 1 quart water. The excess in the quart can be used to make graviola or green tea. So far, for me, it stopped the lung cancer.

I feel fine except I'm 83 yrs old and that'll slow some folks down.

Good luck, David

Hi, I think maybe you are feeling worse because you are doing too many new things at one time. When you start to kill off pathogens they can cause a "healing crisis" or "herxing" which is waste or pathogens from the original pathogens. I would start with one thing at a time. I would be careful about the dosing as well. I know with Borax you make a solution then take only a spoonful of the solution a day. There are B pages on Borax with the exact recipe. I would say, stay with natural modalities because pharmaceuticals really have terrible "side effects". Ivermectin is awesome for killing parasites. Again, start low and slow!

Also, taking baths in epsom salts and borax might help you feel better. Drink plenty of good clean water (not Tap).

I highly recommend you get on a clean ketogenic diet, as this is very healing and anti-inflammatory. At least get ALL sugar and nearly all carbs out of your diet as well as nightshades and gluten. Keto got rid of all my fibromyalgia pain and every disease I had (gastroparesis, GERD, migraines, sleep apnea, etc)

Best wishes.

Actually, N-A-C is still available but Amazon has pulled it off their website. I still order it monthly. They are trying to make it classified as a drug but have not done so yet.

Yes. Sure sounds like gout to me. There's a product called uro-solvine that works against gout. You also have to balance your diet- less strong proteins, that's red meat and beans. More veg. If you soak your feet in urine- your own, your partner's, horse- and get relief, it's gout. Uric acid crystals in the tissues.

I'm actually taking the liquid bovine ivermectin. I have been giving it to my dogs monthly for years to prevent heart worm. I was nervous at first but you will try anything when you are desperate. I didn't have any reaction that I'm aware of unless my flareup was caused by that. Dieoff? The problem is I don't know how often to use it because doctors won't tell you! I used it for about a week and took 3 weeks off and took another dose. I don't know if it did anything though. I'm also doing a dewormer kit, cloves, wormwood and black walnut. And I'm also drinking diatenatious earth each day too. I don't know how long or frequent to do any of it except the kit. Dr Lee Merritt suggests 2 other dewormers as well but I haven't gotten those yet because I'm doing so many other things right now. She says if you have pets, you have parasites. I don't know if they cause arthritis but who wants parasites, yikes!

Jean's Tomato Tea has worked every time! I keep coming back to this looking for the recipe, you would think I would keep it somewhere handy!

I use tomato juice, 2 garlic crushed, 2 T lemon juice, a dash of cayenne and 2 T honey. Simmer gently.

Usually 2 cups is good to clear things up. By the 3rd day I'm so much better, and no longer craving tomatoes and garlic ;-).

I've had the same experience. Started taking for my back pain I've had since a really bad accident years ago. The pain got excruciating for a week or two then it went away after so kept taking. I still take daily and have none of the severe pains I was living with for the last 15 plus years.

Thank you, Bev!

Ted used to mention ACV/Baking Soda mixture. That would neutralize the acid defore drinking and make the taste slightly more palatable while conserving the bodies natural bicarbonate stores. All good things imo.

Hi, there. My lymph node on my collar bone is swollen and Dr. Google tells me that in 90% of those cases in people over 40 has an upper body/lung infection. I'd love to know as much as you can share. I do plan on calling my doctor first thing Monday morning (it's now Sat eve). Appreciate your help.

Daniel,

I agree with others' suggestions to try Mullein. Also agree with others about detrimental effects of FOG, and according to an old doctor from many years ago, late afternoon air - 4pm air onwards (especially in winter) is unhealthy for kids, the elderly and those in ill health. On the off chance there's still bruising/dead blood in your lung from previous lung injury, Doctor's Best Natto Sera may help because it dissolves dead blood/clots and shuttles it away from site of injury. Both Nattokinase and Serapeptase are needed in order to effect dissolving and shuttling blood away.

Astragalus has multiple health benefits and may also be of help. Like an all round general tonic that heals on cellular (DNA) level.

For anxiety; 1 capsule of each: GABA 500mg, L-Tryptophan 500mg and L-Theanine 200mg on and empty stomach first thing in the morning. And at bedtime on an empty stomach 1 capsule of each: GABA 500mg and L-Tryptophan 500mg.

My best to you in good health,

Dana

Very good information, Art. Thanx. Did not know that. The Apple cider vinegar that's always being suggested is probably not a good idea neither and will probably burn as bad.

A ketogenic formula may help. Even better, search The Weston A Price Homemade Baby Formula.
