Chronic Fatigue Treatment Requires Multifaceted Approach

Everyone feels a little tired sometimes, but chronic fatigue lasts for several months and can become quite debilitating for some patients. Feeling left behind this summer and tired all the time? Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), often triggered by a combination of factors, may be what’s dragging you down.

Although there are many theories about what causes CFS, ranging from viral infections to stress, no one really knows. Signs and symptoms of chronic fatigue may include feeling tired, unable to concentrate, unexplained muscle or joint pain, unrefreshing sleep, and enlarged lymph nodes in your neck or armpits.

With more than 25 years of experience treating complex conditions like chronic fatigue, Dr. Dale Guyer, founder of The Guyer Institute of Molecular Medicine, offers a multifaceted approach to chronic fatigue treatment. He focuses on the root causes of a patient’s condition, often discovering their fatigue is caused by underlying health problems that can be treated with supplements, medication and IV vitamin therapies.

“I only wish I had tried IV therapy first rather than discover it all these years later,” says Dan, a patient who found relief from his chronic fatigue at The Guyer Institute. “Dr. Guyer and his staff gave me my life back. I had no idea what I was missing or how enjoyable life could be until I started feeling like myself again.”

chronic fatigueWhat Causes Chronic Fatigue?

The cause of chronic fatigue varies widely, depending on which medical theory you believe, but it may often begin as a viral or bacterial infection the patient never fully recovers from. The root cause might also be related to fungal, parasitic or mixed infections.

Problems related to a patient’s immune system, a hormonal imbalance, and mental health problems, such as stress, depression or emotional trauma, can also trigger chronic fatigue syndrome. In addition, a patient with chronic fatigue may suffer from various micronutrient deficiencies, including not getting the right amount of magnesium, zinc and potassium in their diets.

Chronic Fatigue Treatment

Treating CFS requires a multifaceted approach, rather than just focusing on symptom relief. The conventional medical model for chronic fatigue treatment tends to focus on managing a patient’s symptoms with anti-inflammatory medications for pain relief and antidepressants for depression.

chronic fatigueDr. Guyer believes in adjunctive treatment of the underlying conditions, which gets to the root of the problem and helps to provide a more balanced and synergistic approach.

Patients begin with a thorough examination and discussion of their symptoms. Dr. Guyer then orders a comprehensive lab work-up, which may include blood, salvia or urinary testing. The detailed lab tests show more than just blood cell count or lipid status; they show a patient’s neurotransmitter balance, metabolism, cellular energy production, and a broader array of hormone balance and interaction. Tests can also be performed to check for toxin accumulation, if that’s a suspected factor contributing to the patient’s persistent fatigue.

Dr. Guyer’s remedies for chronic fatigue often include a combination of supplements, medication and IV vitamin therapies, depending on the patient’s diagnosis. For immune system support, The Guyer Institute recommends Transfer Factor, a supplement that supports healthy energy levels by promoting the effectiveness of your immune system. We also customize each patient’s IV vitamin therapy, which helps them directly absorb the nutrients better.

If you feel tired all the time and think you may suffer from chronic fatigue, call Dr. Guyer today to make an appointment and we’ll get you on the road to feeling happier, healthier and more energized.

Tailored Treatments Help Fight Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and Fibromyalgia affect far more women than men. Many sufferers feel hopeless that they will ever get better.

With 2017 right around the corner, we are here to supportively restore hope by focusing on a comprehensive treatment plan to restore your health. At The Guyer Institute and Synergy Spa, our focus is on the root causes rather than exclusively symptoms.

The afflictions of CFS and Fibromyalgia do not have to be mysterious. There are answers.

CFS is marked by extraordinary, lasting fatigue that does not improve. Fibromyalgia involves tender trigger spots of persistent pain, at various points all over the body.

Both disorders can change lives, possibly your life, and here, we have adopted an integrative approach to finding out the most likely causes for your condition.

The root cause can be significant vitamin, mineral and micro-nutrient deficiencies. Also: endocrine, hormonal, metabolic or immune systems that are not functioning optimally.

At The Guyer Institute and Synergy Spa, we do the comprehensive testing. Our experience allows us to determine from the results which healing options may provide the best outcomes.

CFS and Fibromyalgia cases can in many instances be initiated by a significant cold or flu-like symptom or infection. Some sufferers are never able to recuperate and go back to their more optimal state of health.

“The body’s chemistry is so complex, yet it is also understandable with the right data,” our founder, Dale Guyer, M.D., says. “Our goal is simple: what can we do to help short and long-term? How soon can we make a real difference for you?”

“With the onset of my medical issues,” Brian said, “I was no longer able to work. I went from running 16 miles non-stop to struggling to walk to the mailbox at the end of the driveway.”

He goes on. “I no longer had the mental capacity to help the kids with homework,” Brian said. “I slept 15 hours a night.”

Then he came to The Guyer Institute and Synergy Spa. “Dr. Guyer’s treatment methods were a last resort for me. Dr. Guyer looks at the whole body instead of just the troubled area.”

Brian is now feeling remarkably better. He has advice for sufferers. “Follow Dr. Guyer and his wonderful staff’s instructions, no matter how unrelated at first. A healthy body can fight off infections best.”

Dr. Guyer stresses that to tackle CFS or Fibromyalgia effectively, all the pieces must be put together in synergistic fashion. A  targeted, balanced approach works best in the progression toward well-being.

“For many people,” Dr. Guyer said, “that climb can be fairly rapid. For others who are more highly sensitive, the important health advances may come at a slower pace. I have treated so many individuals who have improved dramatically through our careful, inclusive regimen.”

IV Therapy- a solution for a most common complaint?

“To hear complaints is wearisome alike to the wretched and the happy.”- Samuel Johnson

I’m tired all the time.”

It’s a common complaint.

And, it’s one uttered more by women than men. It has to do with our energy level. There are lots of us, it seems, that suffer from chronic tiredness. I’m not talking about the occasional problem staying awake during prime time sitcoms. I’m talking about fatigue that is persistent and limiting. You may even wake in the morning feeling as though you never slept.

How common is fatigue”, you ask?

Very common, indeed!

Experts say that 10% of people globally at any one time are suffering from persistent tiredness. And, it’s one of the most common complaints of patients visiting doctors. The National Institutes of Health informs that approximately one in every five Americans claims to have fatigue that is severe enough to interfere with daily normal life.

Of course, there are many causes of chronic tiredness. Some of the most common are stress, allergic rhinitis, anemia, depression, and fibromyalgia. http://www.webmd.com/sleep-disorders/excessive-sleepiness-10/how-tired-is-too-tired Regardless, more and more people are researching the Internet, looking to natural remedies for tiredness. And, their research may lead them to visit to their local Whole Foods or Earth Fare store, where they buy vitamins or supplements they HOPE can boost their energy-deprived bodies.

So, are oral vitamins and supplements the answer?

There’s certainly nothing wrong with treating a tired body with vitamins and minerals. A deficiency in this area could, indeed, be contributing to the fatigue. However, treating this condition orally has limitations. Any physician will tell you that the human digestive tract has limited ability to absorb vitamins or supplements directly into the blood stream where the nutrients are really needed in order to benefit.

IV Vitamin/Mineral Therapy is the perfect solution.

IV therapy is a method of infusing vitamins, minerals, and other natural substances directly into the bloodstream. Injecting these life-enhancing agents this way is beneficial in two ways.

  • First, we are bypassing the limitations of the digestive system completely.
  • Secondly, administering nutrients directly into the blood stream allows for higher than normal blood levels.

These increased levels can provide an immediate therapeutic response by correcting deficiencies that may arise from a disease state.

IV therapy allows for 100% absorption of these vital nutrients and minerals by the body. Guyer Institute has performed over 100,000 IV therapies, and for many patients, they provide a core essential contribution to enhancing their overall well-being. http://www.guyerinstitute.com

IV Vitamin/Mineral Therapy can help in many health-related issues!

IV therapy is not just for chronic fatigue. It’s also useful for treating many different conditions, including:

  • Chronic depression
  • Acute or chronic muscle spasm
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Migraine headaches
  • Tension headaches
  • Seasonal allergic rhinitis
  • Respiratory problems

Deficiencies, once diagnosed, can be corrected with a few IV vitamin infusions administered over one to three weeks in what might otherwise have taken two to three ears of oral supplementation to restore normal levels.

Is a THIEF robbing you of GOOD HEALTH?

We don’t have to tell you about the importance a good diet plays in overall health. More and more of us have jumped onboard the “healthy bandwagon”, paying closer attention to what we put into our bodies. We’re spending more time reading ingredient labels on food products and we’re buying more and more organic produce.

We have been educated that a diet high in vitamins, minerals, enzymes, phytochemicals, antioxidants, essential fatty acids, fiber and amino acids – along with proper sleep, exercise and stress management techniques, are all necessary for retaining good health.

But, you may be saying to yourself…

“I follow this lifestyle, but I still feel unhealthy. Why?”

Perhaps you are frustrated by persistent tiredness that borders on chronic fatigue. You could be experiencing migraines or tension headaches. Or, you suffer from frequent bouts of allergic rhinitis or colds.

In reality, your lifestyle may not be at fault. The culprit could be a vitamin deficiency.

Like a “thief in the night”, deficiencies in specific vitamins and minerals could be robbing you of good health.

It’s a medical fact that proper levels of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients are needed to maintain our immune function, energy levels, and normal body metabolism.

IV Therapy can help correct nutritional deficiencies that are the root cause of several health-related conditions.

At Guyer Institute, our IV Therapy procedure is used by many patients to eliminate a variety of symptoms related to nutrient deficiencies.

These could include:

  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome with or without Epstein-Barr virus
  • Chronic depression
  • Acute or chronic muscle spasm
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Migraine headaches
  • Tension headaches
  • Seasonal allergic rhinitis
  • Respiratory problems

The history of IV Therapy

Dr. John Myers of Baltimore, Maryland first developed the IV vitamin/mineral infusion therapy (aka the Myer’s cocktail) several decades ago to help his patients suffering from chronic inflammation, slow cellular or connective tissue healing, or body healing in general. Dr. Guyer learned of the therapy during his residency from another doctor who was a protégé of Dr. Myers.

Since it’s inception in the 1980’s, subsequent physicians expanded and further refined the use of IV Therapy. Today, Guyer Institute has performed well over 100,000 IV Therapies. Many of our patients notice immediate improvement. This is because infusing vitamins and minerals directly into the blood stream bypasses the limitation of the digestive tract and its own mitigated ability to absorb them.

Please note: A few infusions can correct a deficiency that would have required two to three years worth of oral supplements.

If you suspect a THIEF is robbing YOU of good health, get read of him! Our IV Therapy will banish the thief once and for all, while quickly restoring you to good health!

IV Therapy- A way to refill your body’s empty gas tank!

One of the first things we learn when we start driving is to WATCH-THAT-GAS-GAUGE!

Running out of gas on the open road is NOT a pleasant experience. The engine sputters, jerks a few times, and then dies. All power to the car is instantly lost.

The same analogy can be applied to the human body as it relates to fatigue. Persistent tiredness can take a real toll on our physical and emotional well-being as well as affect relationships with our families. Like a car running out of gas, exhaustion makes the body weaken and “sputter”. In extreme conditions, the body may even shut down. At the very least, it makes it more prone to illness.

How Big a Problem is Fatigue?

According to a Department of Health and Human Services report entitled Reasons for Visiting Physicians, a staggering 14 million Americans go to the doctor each year complaining of exhaustion. Add to that uncounted millions who seek medical advice for other reasons but also mention significant exhaustion. Then, there millions more who never seek help but are nonetheless tired all the time. It is clear that fatigue is a major health problem in America!

IV Therapy can help several conditions, including fatigue

At Guyer Institute, an increasingly popular procedure involves using IV Vitamin/Mineral Therapy to treat various health conditions, including fatigue. These therapies are individualized depending on the clinical laboratory chemistries of each patient.

Dr. John Myers of Baltimore, Maryland first developed the IV vitamin/mineral infusion therapy (aka the Myer’s cocktail) several decades ago to help his patients suffering from chronic inflammation, slow cellular or connective tissue healing, or body healing in general. Dr. Guyer learned of the therapy during his residency from another doctor who was a protégé of Dr. Myers.

Since it’s inception in the 1980’s, subsequent physicians expanded and further refined the use of IV Therapy. Today, Guyer Institute has performed well over 100,000 IV Therapies. Many of our patients notice immediate improvement.

Why does IV Therapy work so rapidly,” you ask?

By feeding these therapeutic vitamins, minerals, and other natural substances directly into the bloodstream, the GI tract can be bypassed completely. And, that is a good thing. Many times, it’s the stomach and intestines that prevent absorption due to poor intestinal function.

What conditions can IV Therapy can help?

In addition to general exhaustion, several other conditions can benefit from this therapy. These include:

  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome with or without Epstein-Barr virus
  • Chronic depression
  • Acute or chronic muscle spasm
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Migraine headaches
  • Tension headaches
  • Seasonal allergic rhinitis
  • Respiratory problems

If you feel your body’s “gas tank” is running low, give us a call. A simple consultation could result in a new reinvigorated YOU through IV Therapy.

Cocoon versus the attraction of IV Therapy

Do you remember the movie Cocoon?

It was a popular film released in 1985.

Directed by Ron Howard, it tells the story of a group of elderly folks who have a close-encounter with aliens when they find a swimming pool filled with strange pods that possess magical powers. By jumping into the pool and swimming, these octogenarians’ tired, worn out bodies are invigorated with youthful vitality.

Hollywood aside…

Wouldn’t it be great if there were a way we could quickly “recharge” our own body from time to time?

Introducing Intravenous Vitamin/Mineral Therapy from Guyer Institute.

What is IV Therapy,” you ask?

IV Therapy is a way to introduce high doses of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system. John Myers, MD, a physician from Baltimore, Maryland, pioneered the use of intravenous (IV) vitamins and minerals (aka the Myer’s cocktail) as part of the overall treatment of various medical problems.

“What are the advantages of IV Therapy over oral supplements?”

The advantages are many:

  • We are able to bypass the GI system by placing the nutrients directly in you bloodstream. This helps avoid the normal digestive process of the stomach and intestines, which can render these nutrients inactive due to poor intestinal function.
  • Many people plagued with digestive problems find they can tolerate IV supplementation much better than oral supplementation.
  • Higher blood levels of the nutrients can be obtained. These increased levels can provide an immediate therapeutic response as deficiencies arising from a diseased state are corrected.

IV Therapy is useful in treating many different conditions

At Guyer Institute, we have performed well over 100,000 IV therapies. The following list represents some, though not all, of the conditions that have benefitted from IV therapy:

  • Asthma
  • Acute or Chronic muscle spasm
  • Migraine
  • Fatigue
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Depression
  • Upper Respiratory Tract Infections
  • Seasonal Allergic Rhinitis

If you think IV therapy might help you, give us a call. A consultation will determine whether or not such therapy is recommended.

And if it is, we guarantee you won’t have to jump into a swimming pool filled with strange pods to regain a more vigorous, healthy body.
