I have been suffering with CFS since I was 14 (I am 27 now) and it just keeps getting worse. I bought the book The Medical Medium by Anthony William and thought it was very interesting. It discusses the "cause" for CFS/ME and natural ways to go about healing yourself. The author focuses a lot on plant based foods, in particular just raw fruits and vegetables, as well as supplements you can take. See: http://goop.com/the-medical-medium-and-whats-potentially-at-the-root-of-medical-mysteries/ Some examples: Cat’s claw: herb that reduces EBV and cofactors such as strep A and strep B. Silver hydrosol: lowers EBV viral load. Zinc: strengthens the immune system and protects the thyroid from EBV inflammation. Vitamin B12 (as methylcobalamin and/or adenosylcobalamin): strengthens the central nervous system. Licorice root: lowers EBV production and strengthens the adrenals and kidneys. Lemon balm: antiviral and antibacterial. Kills EBV cells and strengthens the immune system. 5-MTHF (5-methyltetrahydrofolate): helps strengthen the endocrine system and central nervous system. Selenium: strengthens and protects the central nervous system. Red marine algae: powerful antiviral that removes heavy metals such as mercury and reduces viral load. L-lysine: lowers EBV load and acts as a central nervous system anti-inflammatory. Spirulina (preferably from Hawaii): rebuilds the central nervous system and eliminates heavy metals. Ester-C: strengthens the immune system and flushes EBV toxins from the liver. Nettle leaf: provides vital micronutrients to the brain, blood, and central nervous system. Monolaurin: antiviral; breaks down EBV load and reduces cofactors. Elderberry: antiviral; strengthens the immune system. Red clover: cleanses the liver, lymphatic system, and spleen of neurotoxins from EBV. Star anise: antiviral; helps destroy EBV in the liver and thyroid. Curcumin: component of turmeric that helps strengthen the endocrine system and central nervous system Has anyone tried the 28 day diet as described in this book? If not, I am still extremely interested in your thoughts on if you believe these herbs and supplements can help as much as the author says it will?
