Does anyone know of any doctors treating/investigating CFS in North Carolina?
If i were in north carolina, I would go see Dr. Buttar. He primarily treats cancer but also treats other chronic illness. I recently have been corresponding with one of his patients who is now cancer free because of Dr. Buttar's treatments. He is also a very outspoken doctor against pharma and the governmental corruption FYI.
his website is drbuttar.com
There is a very major problem in North Carollina with anything at all to do with CFIDS. Doctors will NOT treat the sick here. They will not even write down in their notes that you have CFIDS, but they will write that you have a "fatiguing illness". The Medical establishment in NC is very powerful and has indeed run out several doctors that treated CFIDS and FM. Dr. Cheney in Asheville is one of the only doctors I know about here in WNC that treats CFIDS. His charges are very high but he is using those high payments to help fund his own research. So I do understand. Of course, I am a huge Cheney supporter so whatever he does is great by me. Aside from Dr. Cheney, I know of no other doctors here that treat CFIDS. Those that did treat CFIDS were literally run out of NC. Amazing!
For whatever reason, there is a massive NC medical board attack against CFIDS. This is super correct. I don't know why but it is the case. Remember, a very sick child with CFIDS, Ryan Baldwin, lived in Buncombe County (Asheville, NC) and they took him from his loving and supportive parents and grandparents and put him into a wretched foster care situation - no health care or education for him at all. The Baldwins need money to pay off huge legal bills to get their son back. That is also on the Causes site. Lisa Baldwin is super smart and a very, very loving Mom. If you can, donate to them since this was so unethical and illegal. Basically, Buncombe county Department of Social Services saw that Ryan was getting SSA money and they grabbed him to get that money. This has been written up about other states and the huge amount of money that those states and counties make taking the non-sick/non-abused kids who get SSA money and put them into horrid foster care - just to get that money. Sorry, this is an aside that really got me and many hundreds of other people who knew about this story and did try to help. But Lisa Baldwin and her family need help in paying those legal bills off. IT ALL was so insane.
So, what August has said about the Medical Board in NC is sadly dead-on. This MUST change. There are many people here in WNC that are sick but do NOT have a diagnosis or any sort of treatment. I have bumped into people who have all the symptoms of CFIDS but were getting no real medical care. Beyond criminal, wouldn't you all say?
So much must change and change soon. Enough is more than enough.
Thanks August for pointing out the dirty games that the North Carolina Medical establishment is doing to the CFIDS sick and the doctors who try to treat them.
Wow she is an idiot - that is how so many Hopkins drs are. Just showed new ENDO at Hopkins the ME Consensus Primer - because he could not spell out ME! He had zero interest - didn't give a dar
