chronic fatigue
Posted by: Eliza
Date: September 10, 2005 2:04 AM

I am a 43 y/o woman. I’ve had mild chronic fatigue, worsening for the last 3 years. I now feel fatigue, depression, anxiety, irritable bowel, and mental confusion. I went to a specialist who found a T-3 deficiency, mineral deficiencies (iron, potassium, etc), and adrenal insufficiency and also a pre-coagulant syndrome and an overload of Vitamin D. I am extremely sensitive to starches and sugar. Sometimes I have swelling and bloating, especially in my lower legs. I also get dark circles under my eyes, light intolerance and my body type has totally changed from a “pear” to an “apple” – very heavy around the torso and face. I gained over 60 lbs in the last 3 years. I take supplements and B vitamins only. I am on a specially compounded T-3 and 25 mg DHEA. I have 3 small amalgam fillings. Around age 29, when this all started, I had a “cold” nodule on my thyroid. My diet now is mostly chicken/fish/greens/carbs. I now live far from the doctor who tested me. I feel I am slowly getting worse. Do you have any suggestions of where I should start?

It seems that the core problem is still not handled. Chronic fatigue comes from two sources: (1) toxicities and (2) diet and digestive deficiencies. Toxicities come from lifestyle and/or toxic exposure and/or internal sources of toxicity and/or chronic infection. If one has a healthy diet, that means chronic infection and/or digestive deficiencies and/or toxicity from internal source. The major internal source of toxicity is dental amalgam in people who are especially sensitive to it and/or cannot excrete it efficiently. Hidden chronic infection typically comes from the gut wall and/or jaw cavitations. Clearing a gut wall infection requires removing heavy metals. Cavitations are dealt with by oral surgeons who are up on the subject. Where to begin: find the doctor who can wrap his or her mind around all this and lead you out of the woods. You are going to need a lot of help and there are few docs who can help you (sorry to tell you that, but it is the truth).
