    I don't recall if he gave any specifics or not in the film. It sounded similar to a Myers' cocktail.

    Ah, OK I get those too.

    I was wondering if he was getting IVIG.

    About half way down the blog at this link

    http://ryanprior.blogspot.ca/2013/03/my-unorthodox-treatment-for-chronic.html

    Ryan talks about Dr. Karen Bullington in Marietta, Georgia, who is in a clinic that was part of the Fibro and Fatigue Centers.

    In October 2012, an article by Ryan states,

    http://college.usatoday.com/2012/10/02/opinion-the-real-story-of-chronic-fatigue-syndrome/

    "The treatment plan she ordered was robust. I would swallow about 20 pills a day (mostly vitamins and supplements), give myself a shot weekly and come to IV treatments every two to four weeks. Five years later, I still follow it religiously."
