Recovery from CFS: 50 Personal Stories

Recovery from CFS – 50 Personal Stories is a simple collection of recovery stories from people who have recovered from CFS/ME. Men, women and children from six different countries who were all diagnosed with CFS/ME and who were ill for between 2 and 25 years, have written their own individual and very different accounts of their return to good health and a normal life. At the end of each account they have offered advice, suggested helpful books and websites, and many have even given contact details for readers needing support.The foreword is written by Dr Jacob Teitelbaum, Medical Director of the Fibromyalgia and Fatigue Centers, Inc. USA. Dr Teitelbaum had CFS himself as a medical student and is one of the world’s foremost experts in CFS. Two of the stories are written by doctors, including that of Dr Clare Fleming who edited two reports from the UK National Task Force and who contributed to the Action for ME rehabilitation courses. There is also the miraculous story of canoeist Anna Hemmings who returned to win the world championship Gold medal nine months after recovering from CFS. 20% of the book proceeds go to CFS/ME research

Recovery from CFS: 50 Personal Stories Reviews

Review by Georgina A. Oldfield:

Alexandra Barton, who has herself recovered from ME, realised just how important it is for people living with ME to realise that there is a way out. Too often people with ME are told there is no cure, so to be able to read not just 1 recovery story, but 50, and all in each individual’s own words, provides hope and inspiration to those who desperately need it.

Well done Alexandra for providing an invaluable book, which not only contains the recovery stories themselves, but also includes a number of resources for ME sufferers to choose from to help them in their own recovery from ME.

Review by Michael:

I highly recommend this book for anyone suffering with CFS/ME or has a loved who is. I related with nearly all the stories in the book -even felt some could just as well been written by me. It is filled with all kinds of practical help but, more importantly, it is filled with hope. The causes of this illness and the path to recovery can be quite varied. The reader will, however, find many common threads among the 50 stories in this book. On the really difficult days when hope and energy would ebb and frustration and despair flow, I could curl up in my bed, open this book and feel the rejuvenating power of relating to others who had successfully navigated out of the clutches of what can sometimes seem to be an implacable and elusive affliction. I have made some very tangible progress towards my health in the last 6 months and consider reading this book to be a key turning point. I have complete confidence that I will soon be able to contribute my own story to what I hope will be another addition to this wonderful book.

From Fatigued to Fantastic Reviews

Review by Jeffrey Dach MD:

From Fatigued to Fantastic by Jacob Teitelbaum MD, Third Edition.

Most doctors are familiar with Dr. Teitelbaum featured as an eloquent keynote speaker on the medical lecture circuit, dazzling the audience with his encyclopedic knowledge of both conventional and natural medicine. Trained in internal medicine, Jacob Teitelbaum, is a gifted and brilliant medical researcher and clinician. He is also a model for ethical business conduct, because unlike other crass, commercially oriented docs who hide their knowledge or charge for it, Teitelbaum openly shares his medical knowledge with the public and other doctors. All of Teitelbaum’s treatment protocols are listed in Appendix G of the book, and are posted on his web site. In addition, all profits from books and nutritional supplements are donated to charity.

The 400 page book is lengthy, and is actually four books in one. Where previous authors have written entire books on each of the four main topics, with the acronym SHIN for Sleep, Hormones, Infections and Nutrition, Teitelbaum combines them all into one large volume which can be used as desk reference on chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia.

In addition, the book can serve as an introductory text for the open minded MD interested in integrating natural medicine into a conventional medical practice, since sleep disorders, hormonal imbalance, chronic or hidden infections, and nutritional deficiencies are some of the more common reasons to seek medical attention.

This is the third edition of his book, and Teitelbaum has managed to make a great book even better. Those familiar with the work of the Connecticut cardiologist, Steven Sinatra MD, will recognize the triad of D-Ribose, L-carnitine and Co-Enzyme Q-10 mentioned by Teitelbaum to jump start energy in the chronicly fatigued.

Insomnia or poor quality sleep is a major issue for many chronic fatigue sufferers, creating a vicious cycle which perpetuates the disorder. Teitelbaum provides a long list of natural remedies such as L-theanine 5-HTP, L-Tryptophan, Melatonin, and Magnesium, as well as today’s prescription drugs for sleep heavily advertised on television.

The Hormonal Support chapter is the meat of the book, with Teitelbaum crediting the landmark work, the Safe Use of Cortisol, by McK Jefferies, and Broda Barnes’ work on natural thyroid. To these medical greats, Teitelbaum adds his own unique insights gleaned from years of clinical practice. For example, Teitelbaum finds that most patients need only 5 to 12.5 mg of cortisol, and recommends keeping cortisol dosage below 20 mg per day to avoid adrenal suppression.

Like many other natural medicine docs, Teitelbaum finds bio-identical hormone supplementation important for a successful outcome, and asserts that bio-identicals are safe, a conclusion based on his own clinical experience and medical literature reviews by Kent Holtorf, MD, posted on Teitelbaum’s website.

Teitelbaum found that many of his patients had chronic infections of sinuses, urinary tract, prostate, and respiratory system, and had taken multiple courses of antibiotics leading to kill-off of the friendly bacteria in the colon, as well as fungal overgrowth, also called Candidiasis. Teitelbaum credits The Yeast Connection by William Crooks for much of this information which includes a lengthy discussion of anti-fungal drugs and natural remedies for Candidiasis.

The Nutrition chapter covers a detailed program with a complete vitamin, mineral program with recommended dosages, and discusses dietary avoidance of caffeine, alcohol, sugar, white flour and other practical considerations.

My hat is off in admiration and thanks to Jacob Teitelbaum MD, for this third edition of an important book, the definitive work on chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia. No doubt, many have benefitted and will continue to benefit from the medical insights in this book. We expect and look forward to a continuing stream of valuable insights in future works as his medical career continues.

Other books recommended are Pain Free 1,2,3 by Jacob Teitelbaum MD, The Safe Use of Cortisol by McK Jefferies, and Adrenal Fatigue by Wilson.

Review by Steven Sponaugle:

The second edition of From Fatigued to Fantastic was the best discussion of fibromyalgia treatment, until the current third edition was printed. Please read my review of the second edition of this book, in addition to this review.

Even if you have already read the second edition, you will find considerable new information in the latest edition. The third edition contains new sections discussing:

increasing energy with Ribose;

an enlightening discussion of the dangers of Premarin and progestins, in comparison to bioidentical hormone replacement;

new antiviral treatments, including Nexavir and Valcyte;

extensive information concerning sleep apnea and CPAP treatment;

information explaining how to win a disability claim;

a succinct, comprehensible, streamlined explanation of the Shoemaker protocols, for testing and treatment of Lymes Disease and other neurotoxic illnesses, which are often the cause of fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome.

Updated information concerning prevalence of Ambien triggered sleepwalking;

and using theanine and magnolia extracts to lower anxiety.

Some of the treatment protocols have been moved to an appendix, labled “for physicians,” which makes the remainder of the book more readable for nonphysicians, but the physician section, is comprehensible to well read laymen.

The infectious disease section deals with the causes of fibromyalgia and their treatment. Dr. Teitelbaum observes that Immunoglobin G titers for Epstein Barr Virus frequently decrease with antiviral treatment.

Teitelbaum provides an integrated, comprehensive nutritional, hormonal, herbal and pharmaceutical treatment approach to fibromyalgia. He is very aware of the costs of testing, nutrients, herbals, prescription and nonprescription drugs and often suggests less expensive diagnostic and treatment protocols, realizing many fibromyalgia patients have been bankrupted and lost health insurance coverage, due to this illness.

Dr. Teitelbaum is quick to credit or acknowlege the contributions and effective testing and treatment protocols of other leading researchers and practitioners, and this book contains contact information for some of them.

I have never seen a fibromyalgia patient who did not experience at least some improvement, with at least one of the treatments recommended in this book. Many of these fibromyalgia patients had consulted dozens of practitioners, in an agonizing, frustrating seven or eight year quest for treatment and experienced no improvement, prior to following treatments recommended in this book. Treatment of the thyroid, testosterone, estradiol, progesterone and DHEA hormonal deficiencies often produces rapid relief of some of the fatigue, anxiety, insomnia and pain.

Clinical testing of fibromyalgia patients, at Florida Detox, has confirmed many of the hormonal and nutritional deficiencies, hypercoagulopathies, allergies, and infections causing fibromyalgia, including viruses, fungal overgrowths, and Lymes Disease, which are discussed in this book.

The exceptions I would take to this book concern use of Xanax, Klonopin, Gabatril and Ultram. From our perspective treating chemical dependency, of patients thoughout the United States, it appears these addictions are more frequent than they may appear. Ultram, in particular, appears to be far more addictive than published literature indicates and Ultram withdrawal is severe. Xanax is one of most difficult addictions treated by Florida Detox. Klonopin is one of the three most difficult addictions treated by Florida Detox. With skilled use of Jacob Teitelbaum’s protocols, almost all insomnia should be treatable, without using Klonopin or Xanax. In patients with anxiety disorders, Xanax does not appear to offer any advantage over longer half life benzodiazepines, including Klonopin and Valium, while it does allow anxiety to peak, two to four times daily, due to the short half life.

Although Gabatril is very effective for anxiety and insomnia, the slight risk of seizures prevents us from prescribing Gabatril to anyone who operates a motor vehicle or is alone, for more than a few minutes.

Hosa Cable Effects Pedal Cable (6 Pack)

An affordable and convenient to connect side-input/output effect pedals. This 6-inch cable has right angle plugs so you have place your pedals very close together without unnecessary lengths of cable laying on the floor. This works to clean up your rig and eliminate unwanted noise.Hosa’s injection-molded cable terminations, for which they have become famous, have a built-in strain relief and carry their no-questions-asked Limited Lifetime Warranty.. Recording studios, stage racks, keyboards, effects devices–all can be connected with molded assemblies like their CPP-, CPR-, and CRA-series cables and snakes which perform just as well as much more expensive cables with metal-headshell assemblies.Hosa began business in 1984 with the belief that less-expensive doesn’t have to mean ‘cheaper’, and that it simply isn’t necessary to connect your equipment with ‘NASA-approved’, gold-plated cables thick enough to tow an eighteen-wheeler. So, if you can’t afford to spend a week’s equipment allowance for a few cables, then look no further than the Hosa brand for professional cables that work as hard as you do.In the regular Hosa line, they pay strict attention to the basics of cable design and construction. They make sure that their cables are well-shielded from external sources of radio-frequency and current-induced noise and that they’re of the proper gauge and of high copper purity to ensure low capacitance. In addition, Hosa uses correct soldering techniques to eliminate ‘cold-solder’ joints which could cause intermittent connections or ‘ground hums’. And finally they make sure that the jacket and head-shell/strain-relief combination are rugged enough to withstand the rigors of the intended application. Hosa provides all of these benefits in every cable they make, and they back them up with a Limited Lifetime Warranty.LIMITED LIFETIME WARRANTYHOSA Technology cables and adaptors purchased in the U.S.A. are warranted by H

Hosa Cable Effects Pedal Cable (6 Pack) Reviews

Review by David Morgan:

If you have a slew of pedals, then this is a must have. For ten bucks you get six of these cables to easily connect multiple pedals and to save lots of space. Keep in mind that these are a bargain so you won’t get top quality. I’ve had mine for a couple of months and so far they’re great. For studio quality I would go for more expensive ones, but for daily abuse on the road these will suffice. If you’re a home player like me then go for Dimarzio coupler cables for quality and noiseless response, but for the price they are worth it. Since they aren’t made in America, they won’t give you what Dimarzio can as well as a lifetime warrenty.

Review by K. Zdarko:

I’ve been looking for a set, and these are the perfect ones. Sure you can buy one for or a set of 6 for . Great deal, in my opinion. They are solid cables, no transfering fuzzy scratchy noises like my old ones. Well done.

Lindsay Brin’s CFS Method with Moms Into Fitness Reviews

Review by nctmac:

Core Firing Sequence Method DVD by Lindsay Brin

This DVD is more of an instructional video than a workout. The CFS Method “workout” is broken into 3 phases.

PHASE 1:

Stretch Quads

Lindsay instructs you to put one finger under lower back & other hand on stomach for pelvic tilts. She does this to make sure lower back stays on the ground & to make sure stomach stays flat.

Pelvic Tilt w/ Alternating Single Leg Scoops – putting one leg out, then bringing it back in

Transverse Crunch – make sure to keep belly flat & push lower back down

Elbow Taps – lean back tap right elbow, left elbow then release

Back Extensions – on stomach, lower arms on floor for support – extend back up and hold

Modified Plank on elbows

Assisted Crunch w/ Towel – put towel under back grabbing each side of towel with opposite hand, when crunch up, pull each side of towel.

HOMEWORK – while laying in bed, do single leg scoops (keeping back flat) & raise opposite arm up, switch.

ADVICE – Find time in your schedule to workout, a time you will stick to!

PHASE 2:

Stretch Quads/Hips

Pelvic Tilt with Lateral Movement – while in pelvic tilt, bring hip bone up to rib cage

Single Leg Reverse Crunch with Pelvic Tilt – make sure legs are at 90 degrees

After a few reps of these, then put hands behind head and pull hips to ribs.

Rainbow – legs at 90, bring both legs over to right side & extend, repeat on left

Alternate bringing arms up while extending one leg, then switch legs & repeat.

Four Count Crunch – Hands behind head, crunch. Next, extend one leg while bringing arms out towards leg, crunch up a little more, then release.

Modified Side Plank – lift hips up, repeat on other side

Teaser – sit on “tooshy” & pretend you are holding a playground ball – twist to left side, up to middle, then twist to right side.

Pilates Rolldown..almost – roll down while looking at belly button, stop halfway, roll up.

Plank on elbows – hold for about 25 seconds, or shift forward/back for more of a challenge.

HOMEWORK- Pelvic Tilt with Leg Scoops – extend one leg out, then other leg – pull one leg in, and the other leg in. Keep Back Down =)

ADVICE- Nutrition – Plate Method, Limit Junk, Drink Water…..she eats 3 meals plus one snack, and nothing else.

PHASE 3:

Stretch Quads/Hips

Straight Leg Pelvic Tilts

Butterfly Crunch – legs in butterfly, crunch up & pelvic tilt

Elbow Plank – move forward & back

Plank on Hands – pull right knee to right elbow, repeat on left side

Superman – on stomach, extend arms & back up (legs too), pull elbows back then extend arms -should be at ear level, repeat with pulling elbows back….

Plank Clock – push up position, bring one arm to 12 o’clock, then other arm to 12 o’clock. Next, right arm to 3, left arm to 9 & return each arm back to starting position.

Back Extension with Hitchhiker thumbs- arms by side w/ hitchhiker thumbs, lift up as high as you can.

HOMEWORK- Pelvic Clock – Back against bed using pelvic muscles starting at 3 o’clock, moving to 6, 9, & 12 o’clock.

ADVICE- Have to do cardio (get the layer of fat off) to see abdominal muscles. Use her fat blasting intervals, like the ones in Shred 5 Fast, and she promises you’ll see results.

Lindsay does a great job describing form for each exercise. The 2 BIG musts for her method are:

1. Keep lower back on the floor

2. Don’t let your stomach pooch out-keep it flat!

The pelvic muscles fuel her method & work from the inside out. Since this is more of an instructional DVD, she only does a few reps of each exercise. She does mention diastisis recti a couple of times – which surprised me because I didn’t think this was in her postnatal line of workouts?

I didn’t realize until I bought Boot Camp 2 that I had been doing ab work incorrectly all my life!! Lindsay’s method does work, I learned a lot from Boot Camp 2. I was disappointed with CFS Method because several of the exercises were from Boot Camp 2. I was hoping for new, more intense exercises for mom’s that have purchased her previous postnatal workouts – and were past the postnatal phase. This is why I gave it 3 stars.

I highly recommend this if you’ve never done any of Lindsay Brin’s previous workouts, as this method will be new to you! It’s great to add on to cardio workouts – especially if you are a runner. Strengthening your core sometimes gets looked over if you jog/run – this would compliment your training, and help improve your form when you need it most (towards the end of run). Also, this would be excellent for those just beginning to exercise =)

Review by C. Olson:

It’s a good core workout, but redundant with her bootcamp video which I also have. Is easy to do superfast. Can’t attest to results as I’ve been slack about actually doing the videos.

Oyama CFS-B12U All Stainless Rice Cooker Reviews

Review by Stephanie:

I LOVE rice and just wanted a reliable, quality appliance to make it for me while I worked or did other things. So after sifting through hundreds of non-stick crappy cookers, leaking and exploding cookers, and the countless bad reviews, I finally came across the Oyama stainless rice cooker. I ended up purchasing it on Bonton.com because it was on sale for , but their customer service is absolutely wretched, and I would go back and spend the extra here at Amazon for quicker shipping and better service (not mention, Amazon won’t triple-bill you for one order and take over a week to put the money back in your account).

PROS:

* Easy to clean. Ridiculously easy to clean. I tend to get eczema on my hands when I wash them frequently, so I appreciate that I don’t have to use a bunch of soap and scrub the pot to get it clean.

* Cooks white rice, brown rice, short grain, long grain, blah blah…I’ve used many types in the cooker and they never burn. I add about 1/2 cup more water than the instructions say because I like my rice more moist and sticky.

* Keeps the rice warm and moist for a long time after it’s done cooking. I tested this for a 24 period and their little booklet was right…the rice was fine.

* I love the stainless steamer insert tray. When the rice is done, I put frozen organic veggies in the steamer tray, close the lid, and come back in 5-10 minutes and everything’s ready to eat.

* No spills or leaks or crappy, cheap parts.

* Fits on the counter really well.

* I really love that everything is stainless inside, because I know nothing is going to leach into my food.

CONS:

* I can’t think of any, actually. I’m really happy with this unit and I hope it lasts a long time!

I hope you find this review helpful.

Best,

Stephanie

Verilux CFS18VLX 18 Watt Compact Spiral Global Cooling Natural Spectrum Fluorescent Bulbs, 2 Pack Reviews

Review by S. Smith:

I chose this bulb because of the full spectrum and the extra light it would give. After installing two bulbs I turned on my two table lamps in the living room. I wasn’t quite expecting such a white-blue light. My plants are going to love it, my mood will be given a lift by it, but the romance factor of the room just went Martian.

Review by K. Chaney:

The bulb gives light which is not as yellowish as standard soft white bulbs, improving the readability of written text. The bulbs themselves are very compact, slightly shorter than a standand incandescent bulb. Turn on time is less than half a second.

The two bulbs come in a container made of thin cardboard that offers little protection. Both the original shipment and the replacement shipment each had a broken bulb. The bulbs do contain small amounts of mercury which is toxic. They probably should be ordered separately so as to lessen the chance of them being damaged by other items in the shipment and prevent mercury contamination of the other items.

The Eye of Judgment Booster Pack (cards) Reviews

Review by William Cochran:

The booster packs are very cool. I’d highly suggest you get them to offset your starter deck. I went online with Eye of Judgement and people had all kinds of cards I had never seen before. The only way to get them is to either buy the pre-made decks or buy booster packs. Plus you have a chance to to get an ultra-rare card per pack. I happen to know for a fact thought that only one in thirty six booster packs have the ultra-rare card.

Review by Jay-K:

The booster packs will be what makes this game really great. Like all CCG, the variety that comes with the booster packs gives excitement and diversity to the hands you already have. There are plenty of cheats that take away from the game like copying decks but stick to the true nature of the game and youll have great fun.

Combat Flight Simulator 3 Reviews

Review by BirdDogICT:

I bought this for the sole purpose of playing Over Flanders Fields: Between Heaven and Hell, a World War I add-on for CFS3 available at www.overflandersfields.com

Despite some known glitches like incompatibility with virus software and jittering with dual core processors (fixed with an AMD dual processor patch) CFS3 was easy to install.

CFS3 is good looking and fun to fly, but due to the limitations of the flight modeling it won’t completely satisfy hard core sim pilots looking for the ultimate in WWII realism. For those wanting to add-on WWII planes, scenery, airfields, etc, there are numerous mods for CFS3 available at fan sites like www.combatfs.com (you might try Mediterranean Air War or European Theatre of Operations).

The Over Flanders Field: Between Heaven and Hell add-on is a fantastic addition to the game, and one of the few ways to engage in WWI era flight. The last great WWI flight sim was RedBaron3D, which never reached it’s potential while Sierra/Dynamix was behind it. But over the years, a number of mods (Full Canvas Jacket, Western Front, Hell’s Angels) made RB3D playable and more historically accurate. The authors of those mods have now taken CFS3 to unbelievable heights through OFF:BHAH, with high resolution scenery, 39 flyable aircraft, 3200+ historically accurate aircraft skins, the best campaign manager I’ve ever seen, etc., etc. The experience of flying a campaign in the OFF:BHAH world is simply incredible. As realistic as it gets.

I have played dozens of flight sims and FPS games over the years, and have to say OFF:BHAH IS THE BEST MONEY I HAVE EVER SPENT ON A GAME!!!

Review by Erik R. Pierce:

CFS3 is dated, compared to today’s games, but is certainly no slouch when it comes to realism and challenge. Not for the casual gamer, CFS3 appeals to the same crowd that picks up the regular Flight Simulator series: virtual vicarious adventurers! CFS3 has a dynamic campaign that takes some getting used to but is a real gem. The combat fighting is almost too easy, once you learn to master the AI, but there are so many missions and aircraft, the replay value is extremely high. Plus, there’s still the multiplayer option and there’s quite the community that still plays CFS3.

Of course you may find that CFS3 is the ‘gateway’ game that will lead you to more modern combat flight simulations like Falcon 4.0 Allied Force, Lock On, and Black Shark. But then, there’s nothing wrong with a little play time!
