Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and fibromyalgia can significantly compromise a patient’s quality of life. The key challenge with these conditions is that modern medicine does not have very effective solutions for them, and physicians are often at a loss when treating these patients. The doctor may prescribe muscle relaxants, pain meds, sleep pills or antidepressants, but these are not appropriate treatments for these conditions.
Another challenge with conventional medication is that even when a correct diagnosis is made of CFS or fibromyalgia, the offered solution may be a one size fits all treatment. It may not address the specific and unique condition of the patient. This is where compounding pharmacy treatments can make an important difference in providing relief from these chronic conditions.
American Integrative Pharmacy (AIP) is a state of the art pharmacy equipped to provide cutting edge compounding treatments for CFS, fibromyalgia and a host of other conditions that are not adequately addressed in conventional medicine. AIP provides these treatments to patients in Long Beach, Torrance, Los Angeles, South Bay Orange County, Southern California areas, and nationwide.
Multi System Treatments
Diseases such as CFS and fibromyalgia occur due to a combination of malfunctions in the body. Therefore, to create an effective treatment, it is important to identify which particular functions within a patient’s body are disrupted and contributing to these conditions. Once the accurate diagnosis has been made, a multi system treatment approach must be adopted to address the patient’s unique condition in a targeted manner.
This multi system treatment approach is possible in integrative pharmacy, but difficult to adopt in conventional medicine. Thousands of patients have experienced significant improvement with the multi system protocol. The research is continuing in this area to further improve the success rates and outcomes with advanced compounded medication formulations, while minimizing the risks and side effects.
The efficacy of the compounding pharmacy multi system protocol to treat CFS and fibromyalgia was the subject of an extensive research study involving 500 patients who were treated with this multi system approach. The results of the study were published in the Journal of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. These patients had previously seen an average of 7.2 other doctors for CFS or fibromyalgia without significant improvement.
When treated with the multi system protocol, by the fourth visit of the patient, their average level of energy and sense of well-being had doubled. Over 94 percent patients reported an overall improvement in their symptoms. More than 5,000 other patients treated by over 40 doctors using the same protocol also reported significant relief.
Bioidentical Hormone Treatments
Thyroid and cortisol deficiencies may contribute to the occurrence of CFS and fibromyalgia. Cortisol hormone gets triggered by stress, and may get depleted if the body fails to produce sufficient amounts. Exposure to toxins and malfunctions in the pituitary or hypothalamus can lead to depletion of thyroid hormone.
Compounded forms of these hormones can be provided to correct the levels and restore the patient’s health. AIP provides a full range of compounding pharmacy services, including online prescription refills, to patients in Long Beach, Torrance, Los Angeles, South Bay Orange County, Southern California areas, and from one coast to the other.
