Hi, As I just said in the introductory thread, I am a ME/CFS patient since April 2013, that is 21 months. Prior to that, I was the healthiest guy around (I had very good health habits since ever). I have a very good idea of what triggered of my illness, and I believe that I can reverse/mitigate some of the symptoms I have or maybe all the them. To that end, I will work in a holistic way (to enhance my whole system) and apply specific therapies for specific symptoms, so I can raise my overall health level. The list of my symptoms includes: - Very high fatigue levels (I am still able to work on a very flexible scheduling, which is fortunately possible for me because I do research for a living). The extent of my fatigue changes from one day to the other (I am never at 10/10, but the minimum I get is like 3/10). - Dizziness and brain fog. I do have brain fog (or a very similar sensation) on a daily basis, but fortunately I am not dizzy every day. The latter is indeed the symptom I hate the most. - Muscle pain. This is mainly noticeable in my neck - the rest of my body is pretty much fine, since I only have pain every now and then. - Troubles in catching my breath, especially if I talk for a while without stopping. - Very bad thoughts and depression. I am being followed by a psychotherapist. I use to have/experience pain in my groins, chest pain, itchiness all over my body, and a couple minor symptoms. I am also currently fighting against a recurrent fungi infection in my genital area, which might or might not be connected to my condition (I prefer to use the word "condition" instead of "illness"). I am fighting it with pharmaceutical drugs, which I use in last resource only. However, in this particular case, I am using a creme, which hasn't many side effects. I intend to create a diary of my recovery, so I can keep myself motivated, learn from others with similar conditions and sharing my experience. In the last 3 months of 2014, I didn't take any supplements, since I wanted to evaluate how my health was affected when I remove all supplements. Overall, I think that I didn't notice a thing, which means that what I was using was not that effective. I am currently thinking about giving the following supplements a shot: - Chinese and Korean Ginseng for fatigue - Anti-oxidant combo (Ultra Anti-Oxidant - Douglas Laboratories) for fatigue - Black cumin seed oil (Nigella Sativa) for fatigue - Co-E1 and NADH (from ENADA) for fatigue - 5-HTP for depression and good mood - Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis) for brain fog - Special teas for dizziness - Complete multi-vitamin combo - Oregano oil for anti-microbial activity - Magnesium for muscle pain and relaxation Other than that, I plan to do - Meditation on a daily basis - Moderate exercise, such as swimming - Stretching exercises every hour - Between 7 and 8 hours of sleep (different periods make me more tired) - Very clean diet Any tips and comments on my progress are welcome. I will update the list of supplements with the exact amounts I am taking and keep track of what is effective or not.
