I've come across several articles and books that have said that Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia are due to bad digestion.
I got information in the junk mail from Nutri-Health, 218 Justin Drive, Cottonwood, AZ 86326; 1-800-914-6311; [Note: I don't sell this product. It sounds very good. I'd like to try it. Maybe you can try it and let me know what you think of it?]:.

Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) is the common condition that I find in fibromyalgia (FM) patients leading to the root cause of FM, protein deficiency. Hypoglycemia is a condition which has around 100 different symptoms associated with it, such as weakness, disorientation, headaches, slurred speech, tiredness, or nervousness. If blood sugar levels become too low, the result can be coma. Sadly enough, doctors will often end up misdiagnosing this simple problem because they fail to administer a six-hour glucose tolerance test or misinterpret the results. The outcome is that patients will sometimes be administered anti-depressants for low blood sugar! It's is a shame because this is where FM really starts, with pancreatic overload, leading to loss of digestive function and to protein deficiency in the body..
Fortunately, I do not have to administer expensive tests, I have developed a highly efficient and accurate form of applied kineseology, called the Vickery-Voll Test which allows me to test the three specific pancreas acupuncture points,1) protein 2)carbohydrate, and 3) fat. If the number two point shows up, I know that carbohydrate metabolism is impaired, which is the defining attribute of hypoglycemia. This will happen when a person consumes too much sugar or refined carbohydrate. The pancreas will then work overtime secreting insulin to lower blood sugar levels and the adrenals will become stressed by producing high levels of adrenalin so that the liver will convert amino acids and fats to glucose to raise blood sugar back up again. In this process all three acupuncture points will eventually register impaired metabolism, but it is with protein deficiency that FM finally occurs. Meanwhile the thyroid gland is attempting to control the rate at which the blood sugar is utilized by the body, so it is working overtime also..
It's sort of like a car engine that overheats and then fails. The weakest link in this system will determine how the body fails. If the adrenals are the weakest point, clinical hypoglycemia will occur, if the pancreas fails, diabetes will follow, if the thyroid crashes, Hashimoto's Disease could happen, if the liver malfunctions, cirrhosis will develop. Other glands also become involved in the imbalance including the hypothalamus, the pituitary, the thyroid, and the sex glands. Digestion becomes impaired as the pancreas stops making the necessary digestive enzymes, and now the entire body becomes deficient in proteins, its structural and functional building blocks. Then the system becomes open to diseases of all kinds, the defining condition of FM..
If the pancreas does not have the necessary amino acids it will not make digestive enzymes or glucagons (the stuff which allows the liver to convert glycogen, a sort of stored sugar, into glucose), nor will the adrenals make adrenalin (the stuff which allows the liver to convert protein and fats to glucose for balanced blood sugar.) If the body cannot do these things blood sugars can never be properly balanced, and the glands will always be overworking to try and control an out of control situation. Two things are necessary:.
1. a low-carbohydrate, no sugar diet to give the over worked glands a rest, and.
2. amino acids to start the system working properly again..
But don't make the mistake of thinking any amino acids will work, we already tried that, I had to develop a very specific blend of essential amino acids in the correct balance to one another. I want to make that very clear because if the amino acids are taken in the incorrect amounts or out of balance, you could just end up doing yourself more harm. All of my FM patients who have followed my FM program faithfully have gotten well..
In one hundred per cent of our fibromyalgia diagnoses, we have found a degenerating spine, from neck to tailbone. In many (but not all of) these cases back pain is also present. If there is no degenerative disk disease, there is no fibromyalgia. In 1982 we discovered that cellular protein deficiency had a deleterious effect on the spine and by 1986 we had proved that Degenerative Disk Disease(DDD):.
1. Caused back pain in many instances and,.
2. Was the direct result of cellular protein deficiency!.
The next step was to develop the supplement that would ensure protein delivery to the cells. Obviously, diet was not the answer because many of our patients ate plenty of protein. We then found out that the problem stemmed from digestive system malfunction. Nine out of ten people do not properly digest their food and therefore cannot utilize their proteins. So we went to work carefully developing an amino acid blend that would ensure that the body received the protein it needs to function properly, then we added sulfur to take care of the widespread sulfur deficiency we were finding in most of our patients..
In order to find the connection between DDD and protein deficiency I had to develop a new method of testing. Using applied kineseology combined with the Voll electroacupuncture method (EAV), I came up with the Vickery-Voll Test (vibrational resonance testing), which uses energetic frequencies in order to locate and identify disease states in the body. Using this same testing method we determined that it took around 10-12 hours for the degenerated spinal disks to begin rebuilding when the patient began taking the Platinum Plus Amino Acid blend. If you you have fibromyalgia, your entire spine is degenerating..
I told you that viral infections appear to form the symptomatology for the condition fiibromyalgia (FM). In fact I have never seen a single case that did not have at least one virus attacking some part of the body. I also told you that Degenerative Disk Disease) DDD accompanies FM. It is this diagnosis of DDD that helps us locate the area of the viruses. Wherever the spinal disks have degenerated to the point that they affect the nerves around them is area where viruses seem to congregate. For instance, diabetic neuropathy patients with bilateral sciatic nerve and lower body pain fairly consistently give a positive reading for lupus in that same area of the body. Doctors today are still undecided as to whether Chronic Fatigue Syndrome(CFM) is a part of FM or not. My experience with FM patients is that the adrenals are always affected and that this is an area where viruses will attack. A virus that we often find in this area is Epstein-Barr, which is also associated with CFM. Unfortunately we cannot test for all 600 known viruses but we do test for many, including Hepatitis A,B,and C, herpes (zoster and simplex), coxackie, and cytomegalo, to name a few..
Fibromyalgia and other infections; bacterial, yeast/fungus, parasites, and toxic metals: When the body has a protein/sulfur deficiency it cannot defend itself from infections because it doesn¹t have the raw materials (amino acids) to make the defense equipment (such as immune system proteins) it needs to keep the body safe from invaders. Bacterial infestations of staph and strep show up in many of my protein deficient patients, as well as intestinal parasites like lamblia and coxsackie. In FM we often find bacterial infections even in the lymph nodes, causing a painful condition known as lymphadenitis. In this condition bacteria, which are usually flushed out by the lymph system, become trapped and the white cells that congregate to kill the infection cause pus to accumulate in the nodes, which, if the bacteria are unresponsive to antibiotics, doctors will sometimes have to surgically drain. Time and time again, however, conditions that prove resistant to antibiotics clear up with the Vickery Fibromyalgia Protocol..
Protein deficiency will allow yeast or fungal infections to begin to cause problems all over the body, showing up as rashes, constipation, poor concentration, and sinusitis. It is my observation that many autoimmune conditions such as, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and fibromyalgia occur as a result of chronic infections, which the body is not equipped to control. Overwhelmed, the body becomes confused and begins to produce T-cells that are programmed to attack live healthy cells, In other words without the necessary protein to act as our body¹s general system manager, chaos ensues and we respond with an allergic reaction to ourselves! This situation is made even worse by xenotoxins such as DDT, hydrocarbons, PCP, sodium flouride, and metals like aluminum, cadmium, lead, and mercury. I cannot tell you how many times I have seen infections gather around teeth with mercury fillings (or root canals.)I have found consistently that Platinum Plus Amino Acids will remove toxic metals from the system faster and more efficiently than all the expensive chelation treatments, simply by activating the body¹s defense systems..
Yeast is a particularly nasty contributor to a weakened immune system. Often doctors will only recognize vaginal or intestinal yeast, trying to solve the problems with expensive creams, pills, or intestinal washes. These treatments provide at best temporary fixes but do not cure a condition that if allowed to follow its course could well end in death. Research into yeast infection shows that it produces over 79 different toxins in the body, which cause over 40 different symptoms. Bad yeast infections can completely shut down the thyroid, resulting in Hashimoto¹s Disease. When yeast infections become systemic there is no way that the body can fight other infections such as hepatitis or staph..
yeast diet is imperative, but many are not effective because they do not understand that in order for equilibrium to be restored to the body a very strict, super low-carb diet must be combined with proper amino acid-vitamin-mineral supplementation. My experience with thousands of yeast patients is that if this protocol is not followed, the body will not heal. When the protocol is strictly adhered to we find that even cases such as antibiotic resistant Lymes Disease will disappear. Once the body has been brought back into balance people can revert to a more normal diet. It has been my experience that all FM patients also have a yeast overgrowth..
The last category to go over in our fibromyalgia (FM) essay is that of vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids (EFA). In my experience, FM patients are usually deficient in all these areas. The reason for this is that protein transporters carry each of these vital nutrients into the cell, and if you are protein deficient you cannot sufficiently make these transporters. Another reason may be the type of fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals you are taking. Many of the EFAs available on the market today actually do absolutely nothing for you. Truthfully, I don¹t know the reason for this but I do know that all the EFAs I tested were turning up detrimental to people¹s systems so we went ahead and developed an EFA blend of our own, one we can absolutely assure you will be beneficial. (For more information on the importance of EFAs , see my article on The Story of Essential Fatty Acids at www.supernutrient.com).
It is the same with vitamins and minerals. Remember, just because it comes from a health food store doesn¹t mean it is any good! Did you know that one of the major clogging agents in municipal sewer systems is undigested supplement tablet? Two reasons for this:.
1. If you are protein deficient, you won¹t be able to produce the enzymes to digest anything you put in your system and.
2. If your supplement pill is so loaded with fillers designed to give the tablet shape and shelf life, chances are you couldn¹t digest it anyway!.
All Vickery Programs come with amino acids to ensure digestion and vitamins and minerals that are digestible. (If you want to test this simply drop one of our vitamins in a glass of water and watch it start to dissolve.) Also, minerals must be of the proper size, water-soluble, and ionic in order to be accepted into the cell, if they are not, it won¹t matter how many protein transporters you have, the minerals will just end up floating around your system, storing themselves in tissues and blood vessels, causing their own set of problems..
So to summarize: In FM patients , the pancreas begins to malfunction, leading to blood sugar imbalances, leading to an inability to digest food properly, therefore FM patients are protein deficient, and subsequently vitamin, mineral (especially sulphur), and fatty acid deficient. This is true no matter how much protein and how many supplements they ingest. These deficiencies lead to a weakened immune system, which in turn cannot protect the system from infestations of bacteria, overgrowths of yeast, or settlement of toxic metals. The spine begins to degenerate and viral infections begin to take hold, organs start to malfunction and there is nothing the body can do because it does not have the tools to fix itself. Any drugs that a doctor prescribes for FM will only alleviate symptoms, let me repeat that, any drugs prescribed by a doctor for FM will only alleviate symptoms , they will not cure FM. The digestive system must be given the proper amino acid blend, vitamins, fatty acids and minerals in order to start working properly, and then the body will cure itself..
This is the only way FM can be cured. Think about it, FM is a complex, intensive, systemic condition that is really nothing more than a highly efficient gateway for disease, One can spend a tremendous amount of time and money chasing down these diseases one by one, but until the gateway is closed, more will keep coming. These diseases are just the symptoms of protein deficiency, that's how simple it is.
