Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: The Illness That Doesn’t Exist

The doctor says you’re not sick, “It’s just in your head!”

From the Desk of Dr. Howard Robins at The Healing Center in New York City…

You went to the doctor, who did many tests. However, they came back with nothing unusual to report. Everything was ruled out, so the doctor said, “There’s nothing wrong with you.”

But it’s just not normal to be this tired! You’re so drained at night you now go to sleep early, almost every day. You sleep eight to 12 hours and still wake up tired—or even exhausted.

While almost everyone experiences fatigue from time to time, this is not like anything you’ve ever experienced before. You have chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) says that more than one million Americans suffer from it, with the numbers growing!

The diagnosis: does this sound like you?

Have you felt generally “unwell” for three months or longer? Do you have at least four of the following eight symptoms?

  • Weakness and exhaustion, lasting more than 24 hours, following mental or physical activity

  • Un-refreshing sleep

  • Substantial impairment of short-term memory or concentration

  • Muscle pain

  • Pain in the joints, without swelling or redness

  • Headaches of a new type, pattern or severity

  • Tender or swollen armpit and/or neck lymph nodes

  • Sore throat(s)

More about the symptoms

In addition to the symptoms above, the most common symptoms may be problems focusing or brain “cloudiness or fog”; generalized muscle pain (fibromyalgia); a feeling of malaise after almost any exertion; irritable bowel (diarrhea or constipation); depression or anxiety; chills and night sweats; or new food, odor or chemical sensitivities.

What’s causing it?

While the CDC and doctors say the cause(s) are unknown, alternative physicians have directly linked it to the Epstein-Barr virus (mononucleosis), herpes 6 virus, candidiasis, Lyme disease (undiagnosed due to false negative tests) and cytomegalovirus. You could have one or even several of these infections causing the illness!

So, how can I fix it?

The “traditional” doctors most likely offered no real help. If they gave you pharmaceutical medicine, it didn’t help or maybe made things worse. Even the “alternative” doctors that gave you vitamins orally and intravenously, herbs, acupuncture, etc., only helped a little or for just a short time.

Please don’t give up hope! For those of you that are still suffering, the answer is Intravenous Ozone Therapy. You might be surprised to know that this proven, safe—but unusual—medical treatment has been used worldwide in more than 50 countries for many years (70) by over 45,000 physicians and therapists to successfully treat this and many other diseases and illnesses.

Believe it or not, medical ozone is a gas that’s made at the time of treatment (it can neither be stored, bottled or put in capsules).

Organizations like The Society for the advancement of Bioxidative Therapy and the International Association of Ozone in Healthcare and Dentistry are now organizing and teaching doctors in our country how to use this “miracle medicine” to help sufferers overcome this and other diseases and conditions that have been virtually untreatable.

So, you no longer have to suffer this debilitating illness!
