“I’m always SO TIRED!”—Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

You’re so tired at night you go to sleep early, now most every day. You sleep 8 to 12 or more hours and still wake up tired or even exhausted. This is not the way it always was but it’s been this way for a while and lasted now for many months. It already has begun to affect your work or school and even you social activity. Something is really wrong.

You may have even gone to the doctor who did lots of tests but they came back with nothing unusual to report, at least that’s what the doctor said. Clinical depression, eating disorders, drug abuse and side effects from medication were ruled out along with diabetes, hypoglycemia, low thyroid, hormonal issues and just about everything else that might commonly cause it. But something is definitely not right. It’s just not normal to be this tired.

Well, while almost everyone experiences fatigue from time to time, this is not like anything you’ve ever experienced before. You most likely have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

The CDC says that over one million American women, men and children suffer from it with the numbers constantly growing! This could be you or someone you know.

The Diagnosis: Does this sound like you?

Have you felt generally "unwell" for three months or longer?

Can you still do most or all of the physical and mental activities you did before you began feeling unwell?

Has your illness had a major impact on work, social, and/or educational activities, to the extent that you have had to make adjustments in your lifestyle in an effort to avoid relapsing or becoming more ill?

Do you have at least four (4) of the following eight (8) symptoms?

  • Weakness and exhaustion, lasting more than 24 hours, following mental or physical activity
  • Un-refreshing sleep
  • Substantial impairment of short-term memory or concentration
  • Muscle pain
  • Pain in the joints, without swelling or redness
  • Headaches of a new type, pattern or severity
  • Tender or swollen armpit and/or neck lymph nodes
  • Sore throat(s)

Did your feelings of un-wellness begin suddenly, within a period of hours or a couple of days?

More about the Symptoms

Along with un-refreshing sleep in addition to the symptoms above, the most common symptoms may be problems focusing or brain “cloudiness or fog;”  generalized muscle pain (possibly diagnosed as fibromyalgia); and a feeling of malaise.

Other common symptoms may include irritable bowel (diarrhea or constipation); depression or other psychological problems; chills and night sweats; visual problems; fainting; or new food, odor or chemical sensitivities.

What’s causing it?

While the CDC and traditional doctors say the cause(s) are unknown, alternative physicians have directly linked it to the Epstein-Barr Virus (Mononucleosis), Herpes 6 Virus, Candidiasis, Lyme Disease and Cytomeglavirus.

So what’s the Answer... How can I fix it?

Well please don’t give up hope! For those of you who are still suffering, the answer is Intravenous Medical Ozone Therapy.

You might be surprised to know that this proven, safe, but unusual medical treatment has been used worldwide in over 50 countries for many years (70), by over 45,000 physicians and therapists to successfully treat this and many other diseases and illnesses.

So why haven’t you heard about it and why doesn’t your doctor know anything about it?

Medical ozone is a gas that’s made by a medical ozone machine at the moment it’s needed (it can neither be stored, bottled, or put in capsules) so it’s not patentable, so the drug companies can’t make money from it.  They, along with the FDA, have successfully suppressed its use and have kept word of this treatment from spreading.

More information about this amazing, safe and effective treatment is available at and on a fabulous DVD documentary with over 40 patient testimonials called “Ozone Therapy: The Miracle Medicine” by Gary Null, PhD., available from Ed McCabe’s book “Flood Your Body with Oxygen” is also a good source of information about the history of medical ozone and its many uses with 11 references on Chronic Fatigue.

Dr. Howard Robins, with over 22 years of clinical experience using medical ozone therapy here in New York, considered by many to be one of the world’s foremost clinical experts on its use with over 180,000 treatments performed, is also available and willing to answer your questions about it. He can be reached at his Manhattan office by calling 212-581-0101.
