Chronic Fatigue Syndrome:

CFS canĀ  result from a variety of causes and is most commonly idiopathic.

The condition can be devastating, as Dr. Teitelbaum describes in this interview how he went from Medical Student to homeless on a park bench, where he truly learned about Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

How to diagnose chronic fatigue syndrome:

  1. Truly listen to your patient
  2. Document insomnia despite extreme fatigue
  3. More than 3 months in duration
  4. Severe, disabling fatigue

How to treat chronic fatigue syndrome:

Use the SHINE protocol, shown to provide relief for 91% of patients:

S – Sleep 7-8 hours per night using medication toward the goal of restorative sleep.

H – Hormonal support

I – Infections: diagnose and treat underlying or secondary infections during this immune-suppressed period

N – Nutritional support

E – Exercise as able.
