The Fibromyalgia Recovery Program

Fibromyalgia (FM) is a syndrome characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain and tenderness at specified sites, fatigue, and unrefreshing sleep. Conditions found to be related to fibromyalgia include:Muscle Spasms, Myofascial Pain Syndrome, Chronic Fatigue Immune Deficiency Syndrome (CFIDS), Major Depressive Disorder, Tension and Migraine Headaches, Muscle Weakness, Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
If you suffer with some of the above challenges, you may have Fibromyalgia..

Dr. Rob Robertson and Dr. William Hennen present:
The Fibromyalgia Recovery Program
Now you don't have to "Just learn to live with it"

Dr. Rob Robertson has produced a video to help educate all of us about the challenges associated with Fibromyalgia (FM), and what you can do for yourself to begin your road to recovery.  If you have been diagnosed with FM, you know very well the variety of symptoms that that can challenge you every day. Perhaps you have been told by a well-meaning but uniformed doctor that you will "just have to learn to live with it."   Well guess what... you do have options.  The good news is, your symptoms can be diminished or reduced by using natural, nutritional products that address these symptoms.

Dr. William Hennen has created two natural products that are FM specific. A day-time formula, and a night-time formula for those of you who suffer from unrefreshing sleep.  Dr. Hennen also brings us transfer factors, the ultimate immune boosting natural product..

Why the Fibromyalgia Recovery Program Works

Sleep Problems - A good starting point to understanding why the program works is to address the sleep deprivation that accompanies the Fibromyalgia syndrome. Without this it is almost impossible for the body to start the healing process. Deep, therapeutic sleep is where serotonin is produced. Serotonin is essential for Natural Killer cell function. This is an important part of your immune system that governs your health. You can't have good health without good Natural Killer cell function. The vitamin B-6 and 5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) in this formula support the production of serotonin for better Natural Killer cell function. Additional ingredients aid you in obtaining deep sleep. Note: This is not a sleeping pill. It may take a few days or even weeks for you to get to the point where you are experiencing a full night of deep, restful sleep.

Dr. Cynthia Olson - "The only time your body heals is when you are in deep sleep. A study concerning sleep problems was recently conducted on a group of normal, healthy people. The test included sleep patterns of Fibromyalgia sufferers. After three days they all started showing symptoms of Fibromyalgia."

Immune System Overload - Chronic infection and immune system overload and dysfunction are associated with low Natural Killer (NK) cell function. This low NK function is one of the constants in Fibromyalgia sufferers. One of the most significant developments in increasing Natural Killer cell function in the immune system is transfer factors, which is the newest version of transfer factors. Its effectiveness has been well documented.

Mineral Deficiency - The one thing that all Fibromyalgia sufferers have in common is a low intracellular magnesium level. A normal serum blood test doesn't measure this. It takes a special test to determine the level within the cells themselves. If this test is run, the magnesium will always be low. It is important to address this deficiency since magnesium is essential in every energy and repair function. The magnesium in FibroAMJ Day-Time Formula is designed to address this situation.

Fatigue - Malic acid is an essential ingredient needed to produce the energy cycle for ATP. ATP is the energy source to move and think. This energy cycle is another vital area that must be restored in order to overcome the fatigue that accompanies the Fibromyalgia syndrome. BioEFATM is another product that helps with fatigue. It provides the essential fatty acids necessary for energy production, and also helps eliminate "Fibro Fog".

Pain - The pain, soreness, and inflammation are other areas that must be addressed. MSM (methyl sulfonyl methane), a source of dietary sulfur, has been used successfully to help these problems. Stiffness and muscle wasting, which can also cause pain, can be helped with Boswellia Serrata also known as Frankincense. N-acetyl cysteine is another ingredient that also helps with muscle wasting and pain. Joint stress, which is common in Fibromyalgia, can result from the muscles compressing the joints. Glucosamine and bovine cartilage help keep the joints moving freely. All the above ingredients are included in the FibroAMJTM Day-Time formula.

Cell Damage - Chronic illness like the Fibromyalgia syndrome produces an excess of free radical cells that damage healthy cells. Destroying damaged cells is one of the main functions of the Natural Killer cells in the immune system. Clearing out these cells puts an increased load on an already overloaded immune system. The antioxidants included in the Fibromyalgia Formula (RiteStartTM) offer a powerful combination that address these free radicals and clears them from your body before they can do damage.

Rebuilding - Repairing and rebuilding the body suffering from Fibromyalgia requires extra nutrients. Your food alone is not enough. The vitamin/mineral complex in the Fibromyalgia Formula supply the vitamins and minerals necessary to accomplish this rebuilding phase.

Digestive Aids - There is often a high incidence of digestive disorders associated with Fibromyalgia. These can include Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Leaky Gut Syndrome (LGS), Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO), and Disruption of Intestinal Flora.  Digestive Enzymes and Probiotics with EnzyGuard-DTM has proven to be effective in repairing the digestive tract and restoring the proper balance of intestinal flora in people with Fibromyalgia. This could be one of the most important factors in reversing Fibromyalgia, and restoring optimum health.

Hormone Balancing - For those women who may have need for hormone balancing in addition to the Female Blend that is included in the Fibromyalgia Formula for Women, there are two products that may be incorporated safely into the program. 

Temporary Pain Relief -Boswellia Serrata is an excellent natural pain reliever. It can be purchased at any health food store. This could be very useful in your recovery to help alleviate pain until the program starts to take full effect. Use 500 mg, 4 to 6 times a day.

Note: You should consider staying away from all MSG and Aspartame. MSG is a preservative and flavor enhancer common in many processed foods. Aspartame is an artificial sweetener. These two substances have been shown to cause pain in Fibromyalgia sufferers.

As you can see this is the most comprehensive program that has ever been developed. The products systematically address each of the body's challenges. Adding the Hormone Balancing System and the Digestive Aids when needed completes the package. This is the reason for success in countless patients.

If you are concerned about the cost of the total program, the Abbreviated Phases offer a way to get started economically, and represent the bare minimum.  You can then build your own program by adding the other products separately as needed. This is your program. Do what you can afford, as you can, but don't give up hope.

What is the  Fibromyalgia Recovery Program?

Duane Townsend M.D. -"I have seen transfer factors knock out colds, sore throats, etc., but it also has helped Fibromyalgia, neurological problems, chronic yeast infections.  All of our cancer patients are using transfer factors . 

Specific Human Herpes virus-6 (HHV-6) transfer factors (TF) preparation, administered to two chronic fatigue syndrome patients, inhibited the HHV-6 infection. Prior to treatment, both patients exhibited an activated HHV-6 infection. TF treatment significantly improved the clinical manifestations of CFS in one patient who resumed normal duties within weeks, whereas no clinical improvement was observed in the second patient. It is concluded that HHV-6 specific TF may be of significant value in controlling HHV-6 infection and related illnesses. more: Use of anti HHV-6 transfer factors for the treatment of two patients with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). Two case reports.

 In 2002, transfer factors was featured in the publicly televised American Medical Review (AMR). Since 2001, 4Life products have appeared in every publication of the Non-Prescription Drugs and Dietary Supplements Physician's Desk Reference (PDR).

Fibromyalgia patients get results with transfer factors
In Vivo Study by Rob Robertson, M.D.
 
Purpose of Study: To determine the effectiveness of natural products in increasing the function of Natural Killer (NK) cell activity in chronic illnesses. In this study persons suffering from Fibromyalgia were chosen to take part in an in vivo study.

Background: It is felt that chronic illnesses represent immune system failures in most instances, particularly in the Fibromyalgia Syndrome.  There have been many published reports of low Natural Killer cell activity or function in persons with Fibromyalgia. 

Natural Killer Cells: Natural Killer cells are the first line of defense in our innate immune systems.  They are lethal lymphocytes containing granules filled with potent chemicals. They do not need to recognize a particular antigen but rather attack "nonself".  NK cells protect against and target tumor cells and a wide variety of infectious microbes, particularly virally infected cells.  NK cells kill by binding to their targets and delivering a lethal burst of chemicals that produce holes in the target cell's membrane. Fluids seep in and leak out and the cells burst and die.

Patient Selection: Nine patients were enrolled in the study who had been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and who weren't taking any known immune stimulants at the time of enrollment.

Name: transfer factors Dosage: One, twice daily, days 1-10. Two, twice daily, days 11-20.

Length of Study: Blood work was drawn on day 1 before the beginning of the use of the products and on day 21 after using the products for 20 consecutive days. 

Methodology: The patient's blood was drawn and peripheral blood mononuclear cells were isolated and NK cell activity was assessed by a variation of the 51Cr release assay.  The target cells were live K562 erytholeukemic cells.  NK cytolytic activity was calculated at the baseline of day 1 and on the 21st day.

Comment: If a person has a Natural Killer cell activity below 20%, he or she is more susceptible to acute or chronic illnesses, or to have a compromised ability to recover from existing illnesses.  All of the nine volunteers had NK cell function of less than 20% activity with a range of 6 to 13%, and an average of the group of 10% activity.

Summary: All of the nine patients had significant increases in Natural Killer cell activity. The levels after 20 days on the products now ranged from 19.5% to 35.5% with an average of 26.9%.  This represented an NK cell activity which is 269% of the zero baseline level or a 169% increase in individual NK activity.
 

Prior in vitro testing of transfer factors revealed an increase in activity of over 430%. This in vivo testing confirms and validates the in vitro testing done earlier by an independent laboratory analysis of transfer factors.

Some symptoms associated with fibromyalgia: in order to meet the criteria established by the American College of Rheumatology, the pain must have been present for at least 3 months' duration, and must be present in all 4 quadrants of the body.  The pain must occur in certain specific anatomical sites and there have been 18 such sites identified.  In the past, it was felt that at least 11 of these sites must produce severe pain when 8 pounds of pressure were applied in order for the diagnosis of fibromyalgia to be established.  Recently, many researchers and clinicians have felt that even if less than 11 sites were active at the time of the exam, if other criteria were met, the diagnosis of fibromyalgia could still be made.

The reference above to "multiple systemic symptoms" means that symptoms occur in such systems of the body as musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, genitourinary, nervous, lymphatic, immune, and respiratory systems.

  • Most people with fibromyalgia have at one time or another been on some or all of the following medications: pain pills (narcotic and non-narcotic); muscle relaxants, tranquilizers, sleeping pills, antidepressants including tricyclics, monoamine oxidase inhibitors and selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors, steroids, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents. "You name it, I've taken it." Other drugs may have been prescribed , but these are the most common.
  • Many individuals have also had such procedures as nerve blocks, been placed under the the care of a massage therapist or physical therapist, and have been referred for psychological or even psychiatric evaluation and counseling or treatment.
  • Fibromyalgia places great strain on relationships including those within a marriage and within the family, in the work place, and in interaction with friends - "The doctor said all your tests were normal...".


Alternative Treatments for Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome


Fibromyalgia is a painful disorder for which mainstream medicine has no solution other than heavy, and often ineffective, use of painkillers. Perhaps you have been told by a well-meaning but uniformed doctor that you will "just have to learn to live with it." Actually, Chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia and environmental illness can be permanently reversed using nontoxic alternative medicine treatments.

"There are no simple answers to conditions where causes lie in a mix of nutritional deficiencies, acquired toxicities, bowel dysbiosis, inadequate stress coping abilities, sensitivities and allergies, inappropriate or excessive medication, inadequate sugar control mechanisms, hormonal imbalances, poor posture and breathing dysfunction, current or past viral, parasitic, yeast or bacterial infections, impaired organs of digestion and elimination, emotional distress..... and more. There are certainly no magic bullets which can remedy a situation which may have taken many years to evolve. These are a growing army of these walking wounded, the ‘vertically ill’ who are too sick to function adequately but are commonly not quite sick enough to become ‘horizontally ill’, actually bed bound, although this is all too often an outcome in severe examples. Unless there is an underlying awareness of the true nature and causes of such conditions, and until there is a real understanding of the ways in which it is possible to offer encouragement for an abused and over-stretched immune system to begin to restore health, many forms of proffered help (orthodox or alternative) will succeed only in either masking or, at best, moderating the patient’s symptoms."
