The majority of pills and supplements are useless i.e. they will NOT
CURE true Fibromyalgia or
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome in isolation.
Some have a degree of validity and may reduce one or more of the
symptoms of your illness, just as paracetamol will rid you of a
headache for a few hours.
Also, It is a well documented anomaly
that placebo cures often work in the short term, and this is due to the
power of our minds, the psychological response, and our overwhelming
desire to get well again.
Or, if your condition is not true Fibromyalgia/CFS and your body is
suffering from dietary deficiencies, then in stands to reason that by
supplementing and removing the deficiency you might experience a rapid
Such cases are relatively rare in modern society, however it must be
noted that cases of malnutrition in North America are growing fast due
to a fast junk-food diet.
However, this document is aimed at accurately diagnosed sufferers of
Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

With this balanced diet you should not be deficient of any nutrients
that your body needs, or which could possibly cause fatigue, or limit
your recovery from your condition.
And, you will not be putting undue strain on your digestive system,
which is currently malfunctioning.
I advocate taking a high quality multivitamin/multimineral supplement
to top up any shortages you may have on a daily basis.
They will certainly do you no harm and for a small price will eliminate
any worries you might have over dietary deficiencies. Always take them
Any good health store will do a good range, there is plenty of

There is strong evidence that powdered capsules may be better absorbed

Fibromyalgia and CFS patients suffer from Hyperchlorhydria, a condition
which leaves sufferers producing insufficient stomach acid.
Another industry to be aware of is food allergy, intolerance
Again there are testing kits, candida
cures, allergy cures etc. Everyone human being will tolerate certain
foods better or worse than others. This can be down to inherited
genetic and cultural makeup, or environmental factors.
A food intolerance does NOT represent a food allergy.
For example, many people on the planet will display some degree of
immune reaction to cow’s milk.
All this actually means is that there is a degree of stress to the
digestive system in terms of breaking down lactose which is notoriously
difficult to digest.
In turn this can stimulate an immune response which in people with
Fibromyalgia/CFS/CFIDS/M.E can cause an immune over-reaction and a
prolonged immune response, and therefore an exacerbation of their
The only way to find out effectively and accurately which products
cause an immune over-reaction in your particular case is to take an
antibody blood serum test, you should be able to find a company that
does this for around $300.
You pay them their money, they send you a test kit, you prick your
finger to provide a small sample of blood which you send back to them.
They then test the reaction of your antibodies against a hundred or so
food products and/or food families.
Reactions will be classed as slight, considerable or extreme, the
extreme ones, usually dairy/ yeast/ gluten or albumen (egg white) and
of course alcohol should be considerably restricted or even eliminated
for a while to see if your symptoms improve.
I am against total elimination
diets it may be worth a try to see if you have a genuine biochemical
allergy to a particular substance.
I would advocate this as being well worth doing to get “quick wins” in
respect of your overall fatigue. It’s certainly a good start and if you
have been eating a lot of a food product which stimulates a strong
immune over-reaction and you have true Fibromyalgia or CFS then you may
get a noticeable improvement in your symptoms by removing it from your

In my opinion, you CANNOT tell if someone is intolerant or allergic to
foods using hair analysis, or prodding an electrode catheter into
acupressure points linked up to a computer or any of the other new-age
rubbish being touted around.
Similary in my opinion with respect to liver and colon cleansing.
These are by definition organs of cleansing and elimination i.e. they
do it themselves. They are self cleansing, self regulating organs. I
would advise against doing these, all they might do is give you a
In my opinion you should NOT have your dental mercury amalgams removed
unless you have extensive testing indicating that they are somehow
corroding, entering your blood stream and poisoning your system.
Personally, I believe this is extremely unlikely to happen if they were
installed correctly in the first place.
There is only one supplement regime which I can recommend to sufferers
as part of my proposals in my books.
There are extensive ongoing trials and a growing body of evidence to
support its effectiveness based on the very latest metabolic and
I would strongly recommend this protocol is implemented during Stage 2
