You Can Treat Fibromyalgia And Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Successfully

VOLUME 24 NUMBER 3
For many allopathic physicians, fibromyalgia and, to a somewhat lesser extent, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) do not fall into the allopathic practice of relying on objective findings to complete a proper diagnosis. Today, however, more pressure is being placed upon these health providers by their colleagues to exhibit open-mindedness in the diagnosis and treatment of these conditions.
In my clinical experience of more than 20 years of working with fibromyalgia/CFS patients, alternative medicine techniques, including chiropractic, acupuncture, and physical therapy, are important adjuncts to eliminating or reducing the secondary conditions that are exacerbated by fibromyalgia and CFS. Fibromyalgia and CFS, however, are conditions that must be treated on a cellular level according to a treatment protocol that I have used with great success.
