Chronic fatigue drug FLOPS
The mainstream is admitting defeat.
They've been trying to push a dangerous rheumatoid drug as the key to beating chronic fatigue syndrome.
But now, researchers have finally discovered what I could've told them from Day One: It's a BUST!
A new study finds that the injectable drug anakinra (a.k.a. Kineret) couldn't beat a placebo in women with chronic fatigue.
There were no differences in fatigue levels -- and no differences in any other symptom of this condition, either, including pain, distress, and physical function.
That's probably for the best anyway. The drug targets inflammation -- and while inflammation does play a role in chronic fatigue, it's typically not the cause.
And since it's not the cause, treating it with a drug would never truly cure the condition.
The best you could hope for is a little relief... which would come at a huge price, given that the drug can cause flu-like symptoms, nasal infections, headaches, sore throats, and more.
It can even cause joint pain, which is ironic when you consider that the main reason people with rheumatoid arthritis take it is to STOP joint pain.
So, the drug won't help -- but I suppose we should be happy to some extent that they even bothered with this study at all.
Not long ago, the mainstream claimed chronic fatigue wasn't even real!
Many docs still routinely treat the disease with antidepressants, a not-so-subtle way of saying the condition is all in your head.
If you've ever had that frustration yourself, I've got the news you've been waiting for: Your disease isn't imaginary, you don't need antidepressants, and you certainly don't need a rheumatoid drug.
You need answers... and I've got them!
The reason the mainstream has repeatedly failed at treating or even identifying chronic fatigue is that it's not a disease with a single cause.
There are many possible causes behind it, some completely different from the others.
In some cases, it's a lingering undiagnosed infection.
In others, it's a hormonal deficiency -- often low estrogen in women, or low testosterone in men.
But I've found that the single most common cause of chronic fatigue syndrome is worn-out adrenal glands.
Your adrenals are responsible for cranking out stress hormones like cortisol and DHEA, but the toll of modern living can often force them to work so hard for so long that they just can't keep up anymore.
The good news is that ALL of these causes can be treated, and you can make a complete recovery, even if you've battled chronic fatigue for years.
The bad news? You can't treat what you can't find, and most mainstream physicians don't even know where to look.
Seek the advice of a holistic medical doctor instead. Unlike the mainstream, which is only just now coming around, we've never doubted that this condition is real.
