Naturally Treat Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)

Chronic fatigue (CFS) is one of those conditions that responds extremely well to the Baseline of Health® Program. Why?

Quite simply, the Baseline of Health® Program is non-specific in its approach. It is not designed to address specific conditions or symptoms, but rather, to raise the health and performance of all major systems in the body at one time – thus allowing the body to perform as it was designed to do. This turns out to be the perfect approach for conditions such as CFS that have wide ranging symptoms and no known specific cause. In fact, a quick look at the suspected causes shows how the Baseline of Health® Program actually addresses each and every one of them.

  • Central nervous system and hormonal abnormalities
  • Infections
  • Immune system abnormalities
  • Low blood pressure
  • Psychiatric or emotional conditions
  • Toxins
  • Genetic factors

Central Nervous System and Hormone Abnormalities

Some studies have associated CFS with abnormalities in brain chemicals such as high levels of serotonin or low levels of dopamine. Still other studies have connected CFS with abnormally low levels of stress hormones produced by the adrenal glands and low levels of DHEA.

The Baseline of Health® Program works to balance out hormone levels and to moderate brain chemicals, raising or lowering levels as required. For example: Acetyl-l-carnitine, as found in the recommended anti-aging formula, both enhances the release of dopamine and improves the binding of dopamine to dopamine receptors.


One theory of CFS suggests that it results from a damaged immune system that continues to cause flu-like symptoms even after the virus or bacteria that caused the initial response is gone. Or that it's a psychological response to said infections. Then again, CFS patients usually have elevated levels of antibodies to many organisms such as Candida, Lyme disease, and Epstein Barr. And some research has suggested that changes in normally harmless bacteria found in the intestine may play a role in the development of CFS symptoms.

The Baseline of Health® Program both works to build the strength of the immune system and assist it in quickly and efficiently destroying invading pathogens.

Immune System Abnormalities

A number of studies have found irregularities of the immune system associated with CFS. Some components appear to be over-reactive, whereas others appear to be under-reactive. New theories now connect CFS to elevated levels of tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-a), which slows the body down to allow it to recover after a pathogenic attack.

Ever Young from Baseline Nutritionals

Another theory is that allergens can trigger a cascade of immune abnormalities leading to CFS or that they deplete levels of ATP, which is responsible for storing energy in individual cells.

L-carnosine, as found in the anti-aging formula, and both CMO and UC-II, as found in the joint support formula (also associated with the Baseline of Health® Program), all work as immunomodulators to raise weak immune systems and yet throttle down hyperactive systems.

Low Blood Pressure

Some studies have observed that some CFS patients suffer from a dramatic drop in blood pressure when standing up. This might be caused by either restrictions in blood flow as the result of clogged arteries or weakened adrenal glands incapable of producing sufficient levels of adrenaline to stimulate contraction of arteries to maintain proper blood pressure.

The Baseline of Health® Program addresses both scenarios. Proteolytic enzymes can help clean out clogged arteries and the men's and women's testosterone balancing formulas contain adrenal building herbs.

Psychological Factors

Psychological, personality, and social factors are strongly associated with chronic fatigue in many patients.

Proper nutrition and supplementation, as well as the mental exercises advocated in the Baseline of Health® Program, can have a profound effect on all these factors.


In another subgroup of patients, chronic fatigue and pain has been associated with exposure to various chemicals and environmental toxins, such as solvents, pesticides, or heavy metals (cadmium, mercury, or lead). And some reports in Sweden have suggested that mercury found in dental fillings may trigger processes that might cause CFS in susceptible patients.

Detoxing is the cornerstone of the Baseline of Health® Program.


Studies have located a common variation of DNA sequences that predicts CFS with 76% accuracy. The genes control response to trauma, injury, and other stressful events. Although, there is no indication that genetic factors are exclusively responsible, they may create a condition of heightened susceptibility. The Baseline of Health® Program can't change genetic factors, but as shown above, it can absolutely impact each and every one of the factors that would be required to turn susceptibility into active CFS.


All in all, the Baseline of Health® Program, as detailed in Lessons from the Miracle Doctors, seems ideally suited to dealing with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

And keep in mind, the secret to health is to raise every inch of your Personal Health Line. If you do that, the odds of good health (even of recovery from CFS) are remarkably favorable. If you want great health, maximized physical performance, or relief from illness that has not responded to allopathic medicine, stop looking for magic bullets and start working with your entire body. Variations of this program have proven so effective that thousands of people have experienced remarkable healings by using it. The results may very well astound you . . .and your doctor.

    What is the difference between Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Adrenal Fatigue?
    I just had a naturopathologist observe that I may have an adrenal problem just by looking at me. He said he could tell from the dark circles under my eyes...
    I have done your heavy metals and colon detox, will continuing with the rest of the detox program aid in healing a possible adrenal problem?

    thought I could add the official definition of CFS for your readers:
    According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), more than one million people suffer with CFS. To be diagnosed with CFS, states the CDC (2006), one must meet both of the following criteria:
    1. Have severe chronic fatigue of six months or longer duration with other known medical conditions excluded by clinical diagnosis; and
    2. Concurrently have four or more of the following symptoms: substantial impairment in short-term memory or concentration; sore throat; tender lymph nodes; muscle pain; multi-joint pain without swelling or redness; headaches of a new type, pattern or severity; unrefreshing sleep; and malaise lasting more than 24 hours (CDC 2006) from

    I agree Jon.
    I had some CFS going on for a few years and then I began researching heavily into the area of health and came up with well, your book and other great data by some of the doctors you mention in the book's beginning.
    One thing is for sure:
    The American Diet and Lifestyle contributes and probably is a greater factor to Chronic Fatigue.
    Sedentary lifestyle with computers and TV's and fast food, coupled with all the toxins, drugs, etc in our food, air and water and yes, your liver is burdened. It makes you feel bad and when the body is burdened like such one's mental disposition may turn sour. Of course, some people aren't even aware of their body and what it needs and wants and unfortuantely these people end up paying the western doctor for expensive surgeries, etc.
    It's this viscious circle that prompts me to promote your book because it is very well articulated and rounded.

    As a former CFS sufferer, I wholeheartedly concur. A consistent holistic approach will work wonders.

    My sons and I have severe Chronic Fatigue resulting from the devastaging damage done to our bodies from toxic mold. My 18 year old son has spent years lying down because sitting up is too difficult. (A recent homeopathic medicine has made it where he doesn't have to wear ice packs to keep from overheating, even in winter.) We have been to doctors out of the country, Mold Treatment Centers of America, done very thorough Candida protocol & lab tested clean, the 'Detoxify or Die' protocol by Dr. Sherry Rogers, had all my dental fillings removed, do the Eat Right for Your Blood Type diet with much organic/local foods, etc.,etc. I have recently been lab tested for very low cortisol levels and have recently been put on bio-identical hydorcotisol. If there is enery medicine that could help - PLEASE give me information!! We have exhausted our sources for help.

    I can't comment about other detox protocols, but Jon Barron's detox is by far the most thorough since it detoxes each organ step-by-step in a full body detox.  Just his colon detox will remove toxic mold from your colon.  But he concentrates on specific herbs for each organ that are very powerful and specific.  No detox diet will come close.  See the link at top, "How To Detox."
