chronic fatigue syndrome

  1. Is THIS secret condition leaving you EXHAUSTED?

    Is THIS secret condition leaving you EXHAUSTED?

    Doctors CAN’T explain it. And some of them WON’T acknowledge it.

    Yours may even try to tell you that chronic fatigue syndrome isn’t real.

    It’s enough to make you want to smack him… if only you had the energy!

    But while he’s pretending that CFS is a made-up disorder, new research reveals a way to treat it.

    It’s not what he’s been using. In what’s often the ultimate insult on top of injury, many mainstream docs give antidepressants to women with chronic fatigue syndrome.

    It’s a sure sign that they think the problem is all in your head.

    Turns out, that’s off the mark by about 8 inches.

    It could be an issue just below your head, in the thyroid gland sitting inside your neck, as the new study finds a link between chronic fatigue and low levels of all-important thyroid hormones.

    But here’s the catch: Your doctor won’t notice it because he’s running the wrong test!

    Even if he’s “with it” enough to check in on your thyroid function, he’ll almost certainly only test for levels of thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH).

    That’s the hormone cranked out by your pituitary gland when your levels of the thyroid hormones T3 and T4 drop. Just as the name suggests, it’s supposed to “stimulate” the thyroid into picking up the pace and making more.

    When TSH levels are normal, most mainstream docs assume T3 and T4 are in order, too.

    But that’s not the case with chronic fatigue. The study finds that patients can have perfectly normal TSH levels… while being desperately low in T3 and T4.

    That means that any doc who looks only at TSH will miss the problem entirely!

    The researchers are hoping that this will lead to new treatments for chronic fatigue. No doubt, some docs will start offering synthetic thyroid hormones.

    But that’s not the answer here.

    A natural herbal therapy called ashwagandha can improve levels of TSH and boost production of both T3 and T4 naturally.

    It can also do something even more important.

    While there may certainly be a thyroid component to chronic fatigue, many cases are a sign of problems in another gland.

    Chronic fatigue is often caused by overworked and stressed-out adrenal glands – a.k.a. adrenal fatigue – and that’s where ashwagandha really shines. This powerful natural remedy is proven to boost sagging adrenal function, restore energy, and renew your vitality.

    If often works wonders on its own, but for adrenal support I find it’s even more powerful when combined with other natural stress-busters such as Rhodiola rosea.

  2. PROOF: Chronic fatigue syndrome is real

    Your doc may owe you an apology

    There's a greeting card for everything these days. They even have birthday cards... for pets.

    Can you believe it?

    But there's one old-fashioned type of card mainstream docs need to start buying in bulk, and it's nothing nearly so specialized.

    It's the one that has just two words, and I don't mean "happy birthday."

    It's "I'm sorry!"

    New research confirms that mainstream doctors across the country were dangerously wrong on a devastating and debilitating disease. For YEARS now, they've told patients battling the life-sapping misery of chronic fatigue syndrome that the condition isn't real.

    More than a million Americans suffer from chronic fatigue... struggling just to make it through each day despite overwhelming exhaustion, pain, sleep problems, memory struggles, and more.

    And the one person they're supposed to count on for help -- their own doctor -- had the nerve to tell them that the condition was all in their heads.

    Adding insult to injury, some even prescribed antidepressants!

    Now, the new study proves beyond all doubt that these doctors need to start writing those apology cards.

    It shows that not only is chronic fatigue real, but patients with this condition have signs of serious immune problems deep inside the body.

    Researchers from Stanford University have found 17 immune system proteins that are found in much higher levels in people with chronic fatigue. Thirteen of those 17 signaling molecules indicate inflammation, which is the immune system's response to a problem, such as an infection.

    You wouldn't see high levels of those proteins in healthy people.

    That's a clear sign that this condition isn't, as so many doctors have attempted to claim, in the head,.

    It's in the body itself!

    The inflammation also helps explain the flu-like symptoms experienced by many patients with chronic fatigue -- as the fever, sore throat, headache, and more can all be caused or worsened by inflammation.

    Maybe with the proof now right in front of them -- from Stanford University, no less -- mainstream doctors will finally take chronic fatigue seriously and admit it's a very real condition.

    On the other hand, just because they're ready to acknowledge it doesn't mean they can treat it.

    Of course they can't. Since they admit they still don't know what's causing it, how can they possibly treat it?

    In many cases, this condition is the result of overworked adrenal glands, which get worn out after years of cranking out stress hormones. Other common causes include an undiagnosed chronic infection or even hormone imbalances.

    Most docs won't even test for these conditions, much less treat them.

    But I can.

  3. Chronic fatigue syndrome linked to gut bacteria

    Ease chronic fatigue with this all-natural remedy Run around? Forget running around. When you have chronic fatigue, some days you can barely even stand up. But when you visit the doctor, that's what you'll get: the runaround. He doesn't have answers. How could he? Mainstream medicine hadn't even admitted the condition was real until recently. Even now, they don't know...
  4. Chronic fatigue syndrome drug flunks new study

    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...
