Hi All, I'm 28yrs old and had fibro for 5 years and CFS for 2yrs. This year, I have given up most of the volunteering I do in order to make getting better a full time job. I have a strict protocol that I'm following and going to put all my energy into getting better and nothing else. I am at the point where I just can't put up with this DD anymore and am going to fight fight fight. I have to put everything aside despite my feelings of wanting to do things as if I don't get better I won't be good for anything. I am starting by getting my amalgam fillings removed safely and then chelation therapy. My current regime is: wake up when my body feels like waking up and not before have a bath with epsom salts every other day take my tramadol painkiller 8am and 11.30am drink fresh ginger root tea take 1 digestive enzyme before every meal drink fresh vegetable juice x 1 glass every morning take 1 acidophilus probiotic after every meal clean, floss teeth, massage gums with rubber tothpick, put gel on to make them stronger and prevent from bleeding. Use mouthwash for dry mouth 3 x day Take all my supplements: Vit C 1000g x 3 times a day Vit E 1000iu x 1 a day Vit B high potency complex x 2 a day Flax seed oil x 1 a day Co-enzyme Q10 30mg x 3 a day L-glutamine x 1 tsp 100mg powder once a day Calcium, magnesium, zinc in malic acid x 1 tsp 100g powder Thyroboost x 2 in morning Use zapper once a day to rid me of parasites and bacteria Use CES (cranial electro stimulation machine) for 1 hr everyday to help brain chemicals and pain Use vibro tornado exercise machine for 5 mins every other day and increase to 10mins every other day. Eat balanced diet - include 6 unshelled brazil nuts to diet for selenium a day Protein shake at 3pm Ensuring I get at least 1 hr of sunshine a day to help with sleep and Vit D I am doing many things to stabilise my adrenals before I have my amalgam fillings out so I feel strong enough. After amalgam fillings are removed, start Dr Cutlers chealtion protocol to rid my body of mercury. Reflexology - once a fortnight so I can get feedback on what's happening to my body and unblock the energy lines. Massage - from my husband Aromatherapy oils - burn & choose dependant on how I feel Ensuring our cleaner uses only nontoxic cleaning and no chemicals. This is so simple to do using water, washing soda, liquid soap, essential oils and smells great. I've always been one to put other people first and help them with their problems but now I have to be selfish and look after number one but I will also to reply to you all on this board if there's anything I can help with. I'm also saying no to any social things such as lunch etc or indulging in any length of conversations - not that I get asked anymore as people know I can't do these things but ensuring I say no first before having to let them down later so I don't feel so bad. I plot a metabolic temperature graph daily so I can see how my metabolism is doing. I'm going on a complete detox week in Spain for a week in September with my husband. All this is a full time job and I don't believe I can get better if I do any kind of work except a few e-mails a day so I am giving it my all. I may start the methylation protocol at some stage but want to go through the heavy metal chelation process first. Avoiding negative people and issues. Some people think I'm crazy for taking so many things but I believe it's what my body needs to get better and before end of 2009 I hope to be at last part recovered and am etermined to stay positive. I have done enough research to know what I need to do and what part of my body needs treating first so now it's time to put it all into action. I just wondered how many people are doing as many bizarre things and have had to make their health a full time job? I expect there's lot of people out there? I am keeping records of everyhting just in case I can inform people later on what worked for me to help others. If this doesnt work then I will be broke and not a happy bunny! So fibro and CFS recovery is now my full time job!!!
