Chronic Fatigue Syndrome? 

Implications for Treatment Strategy.

how to beat fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome


I believe the cause of these prolonged episodes of Fibromyalgia and CFS which can go on for years or even a lifetime is that at the time of exposure in those patients genetically compromised the body’s immune and nervous system, known as The Autonomic Nervous System effectively blew a fuse. 

Pardon the unscientific analogy, but bear with me!

Recent research has shown that in Fibromyalgia/CFS patients there is an irregular molecular weight for cells and enzymes that act as the bodies defense mechanisms, viral channels remain open as expressed by RNase L weights long after viruses have effectively been eliminated. 

This means that effectively your body is still fighting infections long after they have been beaten, consuming energy resources and destroying other healthy cells creating massive free radical damage so feedingthe overall feeling and cycle of exhaustion.

For example, lets examine a commonly cited feature of Fibromyalgia and CFS. You notice how when you have the slightest inkling of a sore throat or a cold coming on, your Fibromyalgia/ CFS symptoms get noticeably worse, but surprisingly the cold never fully develops?

This is a feature of the up-regulated immune system, blasting the infection out of your system and subsequently leaving the viral enzyme channels open way longer than in a healthy patient. 

The cold is gone but your immune system is still effectively fighting it.

The lymphocytes can’t find what they are looking for so float around attacking the wrong cells causing a massive increase in cell-free DNA via cellular apoptosis (cellular death).

The effect is that your Fibromyalgia/CFS gets worse.

For me, confirming this  - it is not surprising therefore that Ampligen has been found to be effective in some sufferers as it has a strong antiviral mechanism. The incidence of antiviral activation is reduced taking the stress off the ANS (Autonomic Nervous System) effectively making the patient “feel” better. 

However the ultimate goal should be to restore healthy immune function and appropriate immune response. 

Similarly with Fibromyalgia/CFS of bacterial origin, the presence of these bacteria is causing an irregular dysfunctional immune response. 

What we can do of course with bacterial infections is reduce the presence of the organisms to almost zero while simultaneously addressing the underlying cause, the dysfunctional immune system. 

There are reported instances of patients diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and CFS making a full recovery after antibiotics which for me goes to indicate that the original diagnosis was wrong and should have been Lyme's borrelia.

However this is a minority of cases and does not warrant claims that Lymes disease IS Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue.

In order to treat sufferers with Fibromyalgia/CFS type 1 it is possible to reduce the bacterial load using synthetic antibiotics.

The regime i underwent was (only to be attempted under supervision of your fully qualified health practitioner) to start with 1.5g Amoxicillin working up to 3g taken through the course of the day. After 2 months on this regime a 4 month programme of Metronidazole and Amoxicillin can be taken together.

This rigorous programme will address the problem of borrelia in their latent and active states and give enough time and high enough volumes to penetrate deep into all body tissues where borrelial spirochetes can lie dormant. 

Then finished off with 2 months of Amoxicillin to consolidate results. 

Amoxicillin is very well tolerated in most individuals with a negligible side effect profile. In patients where Amoxicillin is not tolerated or if there appears to be some bacterial resistance, Doxycycline should be substituted.

Metronidazole I’m afraid is awful and will make you feel as poorly as the illness itself, but like most things that are vile it works extremely well.

If sufferers are averse to the concept of taking synthetic antibiotics, a herbal supplement has been receiving reports from colleagues of powerful antibiotic, antiviral and immuno-modulatory properties.


Pentacyclic Alkaloid Type Uncaria Tomentosa, is a Peruvian herb, it is produced by Nutrimedix Ltd under the trade name, Samento. 

In following any programme of prescribed medicine or herbal substitutes, you will need to explain to your doctor what you are doing, and get his support in prescribing these quantities of antibiotics.

There is strong controversy around the whole Lyme’s disease arena and some doctors are under pressure from authorities to reduce antibiotic prescriptions due to the emergence of bacteria that are becoming resistant to them. 

Again this is not your problem at the moment. If your practitioner cannot give you a good reason to explain why you are unsuitable for long-term antibiotic therapy then take your business elsewhere.

A true borrelial infestation should be terminated with the same prejudice that a provider would associate with severe syphilitic infections, a similar spirochetal organism which can ultimately cause brain and tissue damage if left untreated.

Under NO circumstances should a sufferer self-prescribe or self-administer drugs, and the author takes NO responsibility should adverse effects occur as a result of self-administration after reading this eBook. *

As a Fibromyalgia/CFS sufferer you will have been genetically predisposed to developing this condition since birth.

The human body is a resilient, hardwearing astonishingly adaptable organism that can tolerate deficiencies, anomalies and abnormalities for many years before becoming symptomatic. 

And the good news is that THE CONDITION IS REVERSIBLE. 

Some conditions may take longer to address than others, some may be more expensive to address than others, and some may entail an extra element of hardship and suffering to address, but ultimately they CAN be addressed.
