    Elsa, I read in one of your previous posts about the four cornerstones of getting healthy and addressing these DD.

    Were you referring to FM or CFS or both? What are your four cornerstones? Do you feel these apply to everyone?

    I'm sure one must be Balancing Hormones and one must be Treating Pathogens and Stealth Infections. It seems like there could be many others:

    Boosting Immune System
    Improve Diet
    Address Sleep Issues
    Get Gut in Better Condition

    Thanks! Your input and experience are always greatly appreciated!!

    I'd like to hear about anyone's cornerstones for "fixing" themselves! Please chime in! I guess mine would be:

    Eliminate Pain
    Balance Hormones: Thyroid, Adrenal & Sex Hormones
    Treat Infections: Viral (EBV for me) & Bacterial
    Improve Gut Health
    Improve Sleep
    Improve Diet (including water intake)
    Exercise
    Address soft tissue problems (massage)
    Address alignment issues (chiropractor)
    Reduce stress
    Cut back on prescription meds, as possible

    I'm sure there are more, but those are what pop into my mind. They are not necessarily in the order of importance or the order I am addressing them.

    What are your cornerstones?
