So you’ve been newly diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, M.E. and/or fibromyalgia? Here’s a care page just for you!
1. Your doctor or other health care provider can request a complimentary copy of Dr.Teitelbaum’s book by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and including their phone number. Jacob Teitelbaum, M.D., was the first to do clinical research on CFS/FMS treatment and wrote a book based on his results. While you’re there, try running the program on his website where you can design the right treatment protocol for you.
2. You’ll find that the work on your physical body is more effective when you pay attention to the practical emotional and nutritional aspects of your healing. Check out the very cost-effective Secrets to Recovery by the Optimum Health Clinic. I particularly appreciate the audio and video interviews of people who have fully recovered from serious cases of ME/CFS.
3. For years I was frustrated that I couldn’t find a constructive support group. That is, until I discovered Chrysalis Effect. They’re online, they’re inexpensive and they follow a specific structure.
4. Need a break from working on recovery? Check out Fiona Agombar’s international yoga retreats. They are specifically designed for the energy challenged and she herself recovered years ago from a horrific case of CFS.
5. Just in case your doctor doesn’t want to read Jacob Teitelbaum’s book, at least get him or her to realize that ME/CFS treatment has come a long way in the 21st century by providing them with a paper on just that subject.
It took me many years and heaps of money to learn what I’ve put on this page. Please help make it all worthwhile by taking advantage of it. Good luck to you, get well and here’s to building a sustainable future for yourself.
Create a “care page” – a list of your best resources that someone who is newly diagnosed could go to when starting to advocate for themselves or a loved one. Remember to include sites that lead to successful self advocacy!
