reason tackling a leaky gut is so important is that it could in some
cases be the first link in a chain of symptoms that result eventually
in total mitochondrial failure.
already that the sympathetic nervous system is in bad shape in Chronic
Fatigue and Fibromyalgia patients.
We also know that these 2
nervous systems are physically situated
around the gut, the intestines, the digestive system and the bowel.
There are 2 possibilities for your disorder. The course of treatment is
the same irrespective.
1. There has been internal organic damage to the intestinal digestive
tract resulting in inflammation being transmitted to the sympathetic
and parasympathetic nerve endings in the vicinity of the damage.
2. There has been viral inflammatory damage of the sympathetic nervous
system nerve endings, resulting in inflammation of the gut and
consequent symptoms of leaky gut.
Both of the above scenarios can lead to CFS and Fibromyalgia symptoms
as a result of over production of Hydrogen Sulphide (H2S) which then
starts a vicious cycle in the sufferers body.
The H2S in excess can cause further severe irritation of the
sympathetic nervous system.
The sympathetics in turn control the lymphatic system which becomes
very sluggish and lethargic in CFS sufferers.
Lymphatic congestion has been identified as a major cause of the
increased toxicity in the blood of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and
Fibromyalgia sufferers because they are so closely intertwined with the
Research studies have shown emphatically that H2S has a severe impact
on various other organ systems in Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia
Particularly affected is the hypothalamus which detects minute changes
in blood gases as blood passes around the brain.
The hypothalamus in turn has direct control of the endocrine system by
controlling pituitary function.
And finally the pituitary gland is directly responsible for metabolic
control by determining blood levels of thyroid hormone production,
Thyroxine (T4) and Triiodothyronine (T3).
The pituitary controls the thyroid gland through production of its own
thyroid stimulating hormones. (TSH)
Lowered thyroid function eventually results in a host of symptoms
entirely concurrent with many of the symptoms of Fibromyalgia and
Chronic Fatigue (CFS) namely.
Homeostasis, (temperature control)
Poor skin and hair quality
Fatigue and lethargy
Muscle pain and weakness
Memory loss and poor concentration
Slow metabolism, constipation
Low exercise tolerance
All these symptoms are of course frequently misdiagnosed for other
We have all experienced the agony of trying to get an accurate
diagnosis for our condition.
Trying to get a prognosis is even more painstaking and this will
continue to be one of the most difficult and painful features of these
horrid diseases CFS and Fibromyalgia.
The good news is that as we get closer to identifying cause and effect
for these conditions we can provide genuine intervention based
treatments that interrupt the chain of systemic failures.
What I have always proposed throughout my work is that it is most
logical to try and identify the root cause of any illness.
Treating the root cause of
Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia is the
obvious place to start to achieve the best, most effective and long
term recovery results.
I also believe that to achieve lasting full recovery, all organic
systems have to be repaired simultaneously to avoid the negative
feedback cycles and vicious circles which can start up again at any
time, and result in failure of the CFS and Fibromyalgia recovery and
The best treatment to date aims primarily at lymphatic and
mitochondrial repair, which then encourages natural healing of the
sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems (the autonomic nervous
You should expect a high percentage chance of success.
I propose that in addition to lymphatic and mitochondrial protocols
that sufferers experiencing any moderate to severe digestive
involvement or with any history of digestive problems adopt the
10g free form L-Glutamine daily.
Advanced probiotic and prebiotic supplements providing bifidus and
acidophilus in a form not destroyed by normal digestive transit.
L-Glutamine is an amino acid that research studies indicate is in very
short supply in Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia sufferers. It is
highly recommended as an advanced gut restorative and for muscle
function repair and recovery.
Prebiotics work in a superior manner to probiotics which studies have
shown in some cases have difficulty surviving digestive transit.
High quality prebiotics such as acidophilus and bifidus reach the colon
where they encourage growth of friendly bacteria.
L-Glutamine is implicated in muscle weakness and is often used in
conjunction with Creatine by body builder and weight trainers to aid
and assist rapid recovery from strenuous workout regimes.
In the final part of this series i examine the deeper effects of gut
restoration and CFS treatment, and how the chain of decline can be
arrested and reversed as you return to full health.
