Hi guy usual story in terms of CFS, came down one year ago after a virus or possible infection. Then went on to be bedbound. I gave up on doctors as i studied all the material and designed my own treatment program. As follows: 1st step: using allicin to treat initial causes. http://www.allicin.co.uk/ This stuff gave me horrific herxheimer reactions but i carried on as its just made from garlic and garlic cant do you any harm. It did the job other anti-biotics and i even tried antivirals none compared to this stuff. 2nd step: diet modification to dr terry whals protocol http://www.terrywahls.com/ she is pioneering M.S recovery using just diet. Amazing lady. 3rd step: am just starting using ACE inhibitor lisinopril to stop my body producing the nasty singals that tell my body that im ill and need to lay down all day: and my secret weapon, an absolute must: Non alcoholic beer, becks blue: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/releases/38763.php i drink at least 6 bottles a day now, its transforming that horrid feeling that seems to penetrate my very consciousness, after a pack of those i felt more normal. i am now self sufficient and able to gently exercise without feeling impending doom. Im going on a date next week, im really excited so much less scared of this illness when i have all the above.
