Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Expert Profile

I cannot diagnose as I am not a MD. I can answer questions regarding optimizing sleep, hormones, nutrition, treating infections, and enhancing the mitochondria with both natural remedies and Rx drugs.

Experience in the area

Diagnosed with CFS in 2002. Cured in 2005. Had a relapse in 2009. I've been seen by the top CFS doctors in the country, and have learned a lot from them. I would like to share what has worked for me.
