Dr. T’s Newest CFS/FMS Book Is Out!

Published: June 11, 2024

ou Can Heal From Long COVID

Whether you have long COVID, or CFS/fibromyalgia/ME from the countless other triggers that can drive it, this short and easy book can teach you how to recover. And much to most of it you can do on your own.

CFS/fibromyalgia/ME represents an energy crisis, where you have tripped a key circuit breaker called the hypothalamus. Numerous things can cause this, including viruses such as COVID.

Long COVID is just post-viral CFS/fibromyalgia. With a few twists for those who have organ damage or shortness of breath.

All of these are discussed so:

  1. You can understand what is causing your illness.
  2. You can understand what each symptom means, how to tell when they are dangerous (fortunately they most often are not), and how to make them go away.
  3. You can easily learn how to address the entire process and recover your health. Our research team has now completed eight studies showing this to be so.

Anything that depletes energy can trigger hypothalamic dysfunction and cause CFS/fibromyalgia. In post viral conditions such as long COVID, here is the usual chain of events:

Dr. Teitelbaum’s 6 Essential Points on Long COVID:

  1. When you get a viral infection, your body intelligently tries to protect itself. It shuts down energy production to starve the virus. (This is why we feel so tired when we're sick!) 
  2. Viruses have no energy furnaces (called mitochondria) of their own, so they try to hijack your energy system to reproduce. 
  3. This energy shutdown usually keeps an infection in check while your body kills it off. But sometimes the body can’t tell when the infection is gone. Meanwhile, other infections use this opportunity to stage a "jailbreak."
  4. Your immune system gets stuck in overdrive, exhausts itself, and energy production stays stuck in "hibernation" mode. The virus may be long gone, but your body has trouble turning your energy furnaces back on
  5. This is long COVID, and it's the same as post-viral chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, and other post-viral conditions.
  6. There are hundreds of studies and over 40 years of clinical experience that guide us in treating post-viral conditions effectively. Bottom line: We already know how to treat CFS/ME/fibromyalgia and long COVID! 

The long COVID problem is NOT a lack of effective treatment. The problem is the lack of patient and physician education. Knowledge is the key. And the solution is already available.

I invite you to read You Can Heal from Long COVID and reclaim your health!

Love and blessings,
Dr. T
