Depression and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Depression and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

I have spent the past four years with depression and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and been to several doctors, all who wanted to put me on medication. I am a believer of integrated medicine however I choose not to medicate. I was determined to find out what was wrong with my body, it was speaking loud to me there was a problem and medication would have masked it.

After three years of struggling to get out of bed, gaining weight and severe depression all I wanted was to one day say “I haven’t felt this good in years”. My last trip to my regular doctor I finally agreed to go on an anti-depressant after many comments from him stating “this will change your life”. I was desperate! Three days on medication I felt worse than I have ever felt. I stopped taking the medication and it took me three days to get back to the original horrible way I was feeling. I contacted my doctor who stated “If you are refusing to take your medication I will gladly refer you to a therapist”. I was shocked. I lost my husband four and a half years ago and have no doubt it played a part in my depression and fatigue but I knew there was more to it.

In my research I was certain I had an over abundance of yeast. My new fabulous integrated medicine doctor agreed and I started my six week cleanse following your cookbook as well as taking the Body Balance, Exodus and Glutamine.

I am on week five, it hasn’t been easy but I’ve learned so much about myself and my body. I can finally say just after a short five weeks “I havent felt this good in years”. I have energy, I am not sleeping 12 hours a day and waking up still fatigued to the point of tears. I have lost 10 to 15 lbs (havent weighed yet) and making good food choices.

I just wanted to express my thank you for making your journey available to others. I will certainly be sharing my journey with others and recommending your path. My sincere thanks for helping me say “I haven’t felt this good in years”.
