Chronic Fatigue IS Curable!

Back in the early 1990’s I spent a year in bed with chronic fatigue syndrome and the constant pain of fibromyalgia. I was too tired to work, too foggy to think, too pained to participate normally in life, too feeble to do anything that I had previously done in my life. I was always so tired that I felt that I was going to die if I didn’t lie down, however once I did I couldn’t always sleep because of the horrible pain throughout my body.

I became a dependent for the first time in my adult life, and must have been difficult to live with because I was either passive and emotionless or irritable and angry all of the time. I felt like a victim and I could not share any energy with anybody else because I was in basic survival mode and felt like I was going to die. My body hurt so badly that even a light touch of a feather set off inner alarms and I went into protect-me mode. I am grateful that my dear husband stayed with me throughout this ordeal because it sure took a lot of patience and loyalty.

There were very few advantages of my health condition at that time, however there were some. For the first time in my life I allowed myself to take a nap when I needed it – without feeling guilty or lazy. I was unable to work so I had a lot of time to think and meditate on my life when my fuzzy brain allowed it. I was surrounded by my own victimhood and it became intolerable. I learned how to really slow down and BE. (I  had been a meditator for years, and this really slowed down my fast pace so that I was able to really just BE – even though it was such a painful existance.)

One day I woke up and realized that my long blonde hair was starting to fall out. This was the final straw, and on that day I declared that either I was going to get well or I was going to leave the planet. I was sick and tired of being a victim! (No pun intended!) And I was useless to myself, my husband, my friends and family, and my clients. My life was a waste and I was not going to bear it any longer. I hated victimhood and cleared that out of my system then – for good!

Within two days of my declaration I was synchronistically led to a healthfood shop in another town, and upon entering the front door I practically ran into a large rack of brochures which spoke directly of my symptoms, the cause of the conditions I suffered, and how to get well. After so much introspection, soul-searching, and time to clear inner muddiness of what I wanted in my life, these brochures gave me the final tips on how to clear out the condition and get well.

Two months later I was pain-free, my energy had returned, and I had lost twenty pounds. I felt so much better than I had felt in over a year. I was back! I had learned many lessons, and soon after I started working with others to help them re-claim their lives from chronic fatigue and other auto-immune conditions. I was not going to accept that life sentence of pain and fatigue, and there are many others who also are seeking a way out. I am honored to be able to help guide them back to health and well-being!

    I will call you. I have suffered for 15 years with debilitating CFS. I have visited your website and I was not able to find any obvious free audios or e-books, however, I would like to talk with you. Like most who have been told there is no cure…I am desperate.

    Please realize most of us have spend thousands upon thousands of dollars pursuing possible cures or even a 50% improvement….only to be disappointed.

    I am not surprised people get frustrated with ‘carrots on a stick.’ We need REAL help.

    Your experience with CFS was relatively short lived compared to most….not to diminishes your own frustration and battle…long or short it is a very mystifying, challenging and painful illness.

    Congratulations for finding something which has worked for you.

    Gullible or not – this is the truth, and if you visit my website you will find that I offer many free resources: audios, videos, e-books – that support people like you.

    I, too, suffered CFS for over a year – with horribly painful fibromyalgia, memory loss, general confusion, and total exhaustion – although I usually couldn’t sleep because of the pain. With changes in diet and an understanding of why the immune system became weakened in my case, I DID totally get beyond CFS in two months.

    Yes, the immune system fights disease, but what causes the immune system to weaken in the first place? Or, for that matter, why do we suffer from disease at all? I take a wholistic approach to treating auto-immune disorders that includes attitude, belief system, diet, and the clearing of emotional stressors that cause auto-immune weakness in the first place. I have one client who after 14 years of total auto-immune collapse and environmental toxicity is now going out in public, driving for hours, facilitating meetings, among other things.

    So, if you wish to remain skeptical that is your choice. In the meantime I’m having great success with other clients in this area!

    Has anyone noticed that all the CFS “cures” are e-books that cost money?
    This being the case I get the impression that whatever is written is done so to get money from the public and therefore might not be in the public interest. CFS has no straigtforward cure because for one it’s an illness that has a basis of a weak immune system, and that in itself can be complicated because your immune system is what helps fight disease in your body. I have had the symptoms of CFS for a year now and my GP has failed to connect the dots. I discovered quite by accident, that the various symptoms I have had for the past year are more than likely CFS. I have made the decision that I will stop at nothing to heal myself. This is a condition that requires one to balance one’s life completely and mine has been severely unbalanced for many years now,so I am not surprised that my body is crying out for help.I am interested in hearing from others with genuine information, but if I were running this site I would ban people siting ludicrous claims of healing themselves magically within 2 months BUT …..if anyone else wants to know more they have to fork out so many dollars to find out how.I’m eager to cure myself, but I am not THAT gullible.

    Could you please explain how you got cured of CFS in two months? It is difficult otherwise to take your article seriously.

    The number of people with CFS is huge. I believe that if you expect to provide help to this kind of patients, you need to give a hint off what your treatment is and how it has helped people with CFS so far.

    Lots of people claim to be able to cure CFS. To cite a few:

    So people that really have something serious to present some elements to be listened.

    Well, how did you do it? No fair, saying you are cured without saying how!
