The protocol listed here is the same basic protocol that many functional medicine doctors use. This is basically the same protocol that I am doing and getting very good results with. I don't think it's an accident that LEAKY GUT is the first thing listed to help recover from CFS. http://www.amymyersmd.com/2015/02/4-steps-to-recover-from-chronic-fatigue-syndrome/ Here are a few high profile examples of people that have recovered their health----Rich Carson, Ceo of ProHealth, has a very inspiring story of recovery, he had cfs for many years. Here is a quote from a post he made here. "What does it feel like to attack a mountain, hit the summit, see that your heart rate is 179, and know that you won't get sick at all--and that you will feel great the next day because of it? Fantastic! Actually, it is beyond words. Tears of happiness." http://forums.prohealth.com/forums/index.php?threads/confused-about-rich-carsons-mercury-protocol.171243/#post-1063833 Dr. Mark Hyman recovered from cfs. He treated his underlying causes and is now well and treating others with cfs/fm. He is an incredibly successful functional medicine doctor, that has appeared on PBS in the United States a few times and has a few books out. He says CFS is one of the most treatable illnesses there is, and he speaks from experience, having been on both sides of cfs. That statement, to me, has a lot of power coming from someone who had cfs and is now healthy. Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum also had cfs and is now well, and a leader in treating people with cfs/fm.
