Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Integrative Treatment Program

Fibromyalgia is a medical disorder typically characterized by chronic widespread pain, sleep disturbance, joint stiffness and a heightened and painful response to pressure. Other symptoms include debilitating fatigue (chronic fatigue syndrome) leading to the term Fibromyalgia and Fatigue. Fibromyalgia frequently coexists with psychiatric conditions such as depression, anxiety and stress-related disorders. Not all fibromyalgia patients experience all associated symptoms.

Proactive Wellness Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Integrative Treatment Program

By now, you may have seen various traditional “specialists” including rheumatologists, endocrinologists and internists in addition to your family practitioner. The common thread in traditional treatment is to focus on certain presentations and provide medications for the patient’s most significant symptoms. Further, the specialist view often fails to treat the root causes of the disease and typically does not provide sufficient relief from symptoms — leaving patients in persistent and chronic pain, exhaustive fatigue and the inability to function normally.

Our SSRP Fibro and Fatigue Treatment Program is different from these traditional approaches as we utilize an integrative approach that combines the best principles of Dr. Teitlebaum’s research, functional medicine (, and our experience and success in treating this complex disease process. It is highly individualized based upon our unique understanding of the disease and that it impacts patients in totally different ways. We do not offer a cure as such as it does not presently exist, however our patients are significantly relieved of symptoms, regain their sense of well-being, achieve pre-disesase energy levels, regain the ability to sleep through the night and can return to a normal lifestyle. Gone are the debilitating symptoms that they presented with.

Our SSRP protocol is designed to accomplish the following objectives:

  • Stop the progress of the disease and enhance the mitochondrial function
  • Stabilize the patient to include balancing hormones and restoration of energy
  • Reverse mitochondrial and other damage done by the F&F disease processes
  • Prevent further development of the disease processes

Our SSRP protocol provides patients with a leading-edge program based on the research of Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum that is well supported by peer reviewed medical journals and other clinical validations, that is safe and comprised of IV Vitamin Therapy, high-quality and specific nutritional supplementation, traditional medications where indicated and compassionate care by our team of doctors. As an integrative practice, we use conventional medications when indicated especially in cases of underlying co-infections and other areas where conventional medication offers the best course of treatment. Read below to learn about the 4 pillars of our SSRP approach.

STOP progression of the disease
Our first goal is to stop the progression of the disease. Many patients begin IV Vitamin Therapy immediately after commencing with a program. If time permits, we offer the first IV Treatment on the day of program commencement. Many patients report significant improvement after just one IV treatment. We will also introduce conventional medications at this point when indicated.

STABILIZE the patient
Stabilizing the patient is the process of assessing the response to the early interventions, adding the appropriate oral nutritional supplementation to augment the IV Therapy and providing bioidentical hormone replacement to balance the hormones. In addition, we add other conventional medications as needed based on the results of our comprehensive lab panel to treat any identified infectious components. By the time we have introduced these components, patients typically experience signicant improvement in sleep, meaningul reduction of chronic pain, reduced fatigue and increased energy.

REVERSE mitochondrial and other damage done by the F&F disease processes
Not all damage can be reversed, but our treatment protocol has a high probability of reversing mitochondrial damage, enhancing mitochondrial function, and addressing and treating other unique etiologies such as neurotoxins and coagulation defects.

PREVENT further development of the disease processes
Our program relies on therapeutic dosages of key nutritional supplements such as D-Ribose, CO-Q10, Fish Oil and L-Carnitine as part of the program to prevent further development and escalation of the disease. Some patients may also require continuous periodic IV Therapy treatments and use of some conventional medications to maintain the benefits of the treatment. We periodically get updated lab results to verify that the patient is maintaining the benefits of the treatment, and we use these to determine if additional interventions are needed.

While the protocol is important, our compassionate physicians make the real difference in the success of our programs. They function like medical detectives that continually seek to find the root causes of the symptoms the patient is experiencing and provide the safest and most effective treatment. This process never stops the entire time you are a patient in any of our treatment programs. Our physicians have the experience, commitment, leading-edge diagnostics and are constantly learning. Each of them attends an average of 15 days of conferences annually engaged in intensive learning of scientifically-validated medical therapies.

Dear Lynese,

Words cannot describe how happy I am with your anti-aging program. I have not felt this good in YEARS. Since getting pregnant in 1995 I have been overweight. Between 1992-1995 I was being treated for infertility and had to take all sorts of hormones that made me bloated and tired.

Now, at the age of 46 I have more energy and I look better than I have in YEARS. I actually THRIVE on exercise and do it religiously because I know it is the key to keeping the weight off and enjoying the foods that I love.

As a successful businesswoman, you often feel that you can’t have everything and I put my weight and health on hold to grow my business. You have given me the gift of being able to run a business AND look good. I am getting so much attention for my weight loss and it has helped my confidence and self esteem greatly.Since I do a lot of speaking engagements, I know that image is more important than what you say or how you say it. By looking better and appearing fit and healthy, I am a more powerful public speaker!

I can’t say enough about this gift you have given me and I hope you know how much I appreciate you.

On top of all of this, you are truly a beautiful person inside and out who provides a level of caring I have never seen from a doctor, weight loss clinic or other health professional.

HAVE A GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Lynese – In an old file I found a print out from an online longevity calculator I had used in 2007 ( I thought I was doing well because it said I would likely live to 86! But I just re-took the survey. Basically by cutting out the coffee, carbs and sugar, increasing my exercise and losing weight, I’ve apparently added 13 years to my life!! The calculator now says I could live to be 99!! With a little more exercise and a little less work, I could live to 106!! Thanks for all the added years Lynese!!!

All the best.

P.S. – I saw Diane over the weekend – she’s looking great, and is so happy with her weight loss.

Dare I say it out loud? It sure is looking as though Semorelin has given me my life back. I was so worried about skiing – afraid I’d ski one day and be in bed the rest of the week. But I was just fine. This past Saturday I prepared, served, and cleaned up (with help) dinner for 14. Sunday I was just fine.

My update. I feel pretty good!!! My bleeding is under control and I am now regular for the most part. Sometimes I will have a strange menstral bleed (long and slow), but I will take it compared to my old “normal”. I still love the progesterone and testosterone I am on. They leave me with no side effects.

I was very happy at my recent (Feb 6th) annual doc appt (physical). After the standard blood draw work up, my numbers were:
Vitamin D= 66.9 (down a bit from your work up which was 77, but still good)
Cholesterol=123 (down from 150 in Sept 2011)
Triglycerides=91 (down from 129 in Sept 2011)

So… I am the new spokesperson for HCG! I love that stuff!! smile The second round for me was amazing. I was very disciplined and determined and after about the 3rd day, it become very easy for me. I was able to drop 14lbs in an 18 day cycle!!!! AND….I am keeping that off with very little effort! OMG I couldn’t be happier! I am in the body that I am comfortable in once again! That feels so good. I am continuing to eat clean and exercise, it is a great life change!

You are so great! I truly appreciate all you are doing for me. Phyllis and I are so fortunate to have found you.

“So far I have lost 30#’s in 6 weeks and have the energy of a 40 year old. Am so thankful to be able to handle unpacking and shelving 6000 books. I am up and down stepladders and extension ladders with books in tow. The awful arthritis pain is there but the energy isn’t depleted from the pain like before and I keep going like this for hours.”

Hi Lynese – Just had to share this with you. I have appeared in an online newsletter (Legal Bisnow) twice – the first time a year ago and the second time today. Look at the difference in my photos!

It’s an absolute miracle! In the older photo even my eyelids look fat! I can’t get over how much I now look like my old self – of 20 years ago! I certainly don’t look like I’m closing in on 59, do I??

The best thing anyone has said to me so far was a comment made by a neighbor who saw me today for the first time in over a year. At first he didn’t recognize me. Then he just stared intently into my face for a few minutes and said “How is your mother?” (I was confused because he doesn’t know my mother). Then he said “I had to ask that because you look like your own daughter!” Wow!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

“With that said, I have been getting incredible compliments:
“You look like a movie star”
“What have you been doing”
“You look amazing”
“You look ten years younger”
I feel incredible”

Hi – hope you are doing well. Are you ready for Thanksgiving? I’m getting there. I wanted to let you know I hit the 30 lb loss today!!! Yeah! So excited! Clothes that didn’t fit are fitting. Clothes I used to wear are too big. Feeling great! A little nervous about tomorrow’s feeding frenzy- but hoping to not overindulge too bad.

Anyway – just had to tell you that my size 12 pants have been falling off of me! I went to Target this weekend to get some cheap crop pants and shorts for the summer – still not wanting to invest much in clothes that are not my “target” size. (I’ve blown past the size 14 shorts I couldn’t fit into for years). And wouldn’t you know – the 12s were too big – I fit best in the size 10!!

I’M A 10!!! I’m amazed!!

I broke the 170 barrier too – I’m now 168. Just 13 pounds to go to my goal weight. I can’t believe it. The meds have been working like a charm. I think the extra thyroid has really boosted me past a plateau. I’m cleaning out my closet like a madwoman; I can’t believe how much clothing I have for donations.

I’m still getting double takes and amazed looks from people who haven’t seen me for awhile. And after remarking how great I look, a girlfriend recently peered suspiciously at me and said – “And have you had something done to your face too? You look younger!” And I do!

Hi Lynese — Great news – seems a fibroid has disappeared! The ultrasound revealed only one fibroid this time, and it is just a little teensy bit smaller than before. So it hasn’t gotten any bigger at all. And the other fibroid didn’t show up on the ultrasound. smile

Thank goodness I did not get that hysterectomy, huh? and thank goodness I came to you to start the bio-identical hormone therapy. I believe that the progesterone is working. And I’m so glad I’m not on the birth control pills anymore. BTW, haven’t had a period since September, and haven’t had any hot flashes either! Life is good.
