ME/CFS (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome)

ME/CFS (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome)

Fibromyalgia • Chronic Viral and Bacterial Infections  • Autoimmune Disease • Chemical Sensitivity/Injury

What we’re talking about are these complex chronic diseases. What you might call the chronic-chronic disease. It’s when people are left with inability to function and we don’t know why. Often it’s precipitated by an infection, but it doesn’t have to be. It can be a minor trauma, car accidents. The body winds up in a state of chronic inflammation and it doesn’t always have pain. Sometimes the inflammation is mostly in the brain. In that case, it might be difficulty thinking and being able to organize your day. It’s amazing how debilitating these illnesses are.

Now they are often lumped under chronic fatigue, immune deficiency syndrome or chronic Lyme disease, or post-Lyme. These are all names that depend on which doctor you go to. Some people it is called CIRS, chronic inflammatory response syndrome. But basically, these are illnesses that are not yet understood.

The most important thing is if you’ve been ill for a long time,  to not give up hope. These are difficult illnesses. But so many people do get better because there are so many different reasons that you can wind up with chronic illness. Don’t give up because somebody you know didn’t get better. There are so many pieces that can allow the body to enter the healing cycle and really go back to normal.

The Mitochondria In Complex Illness

Audio interview with Eric Gordon, MD.

Our topic for today is a complicated one. We’re going to talk about the role of the mitochondria in complex chronic illness. The mitochondria is the organelle that’s most responsible for cellular energy and it plays a crucial role in chronic diseases. Every cell in our body contains several thousand mitochondria and mitochondria produce 90% of the energy our body needs to function.

Environmental Toxicity: What You Don’t Know May Hurt You

An audio interview with Dr. Eric Gordon.

Many of our patients are not fully aware of the problems associated with heavy metal toxicity (mercury and lead, especially), chemicals, electromagnetic waves and radiation and how these exposures may significantly impact their health.

The Future of Medicine and Health

A discussion of where we feel the future of medical care is going from a variety of perspectives. One particularly exciting new development is our work with Dr. Naviaux’s concept of the Cell Danger Response and how that work has the potential to change the way medicine is practiced.

See our paper on  “Metabolic Features of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome”, published in 2016.

Mold Toxicity and Chronic Inflammatory Illness

Dr. Gordon has been actively involved in research into the underlying causes and treatments of chronic inflammatory illnesses.

These illnesses can be triggered by biotoxin exposure, mold, Lyme disease, and a variety of other insults to the immune system. Find out how Dr. Gordon currently understands the process of inflammation developing in the body, and what you can do about it.
