As some of you may be aware that I am a believer in nutritional medicine in balance with traditional medicine and wanted to share the results of a Q and A conference call with Dr. Strand last night. He touched on FMS/CFS for quite a while. I've been told this by him and he said it again last night that over 70% of patients will respond to an aggressive nutritional regimen and regain their health. This goes with any chronic disease, but when individuals support themselves and are committed to follow this regimen for 6 months, they will see results. 6mths is the key though. That is how long it takes your body to build up it's natural immune system and repair system. And sometimes it may take 12 mths... Since nutritionals are not prescription drugs, they don't work as quickly and they take time. So the individuals that get frustrated after a month or two and say they are not working...first of all, they haven't been taking them long enough and secondly, they're probably not taking a high quality supplement. In closing, I have found what has worked for me because I have followed his advice!!! Have a great day!
