Life’s A Long Song | X Rx Blog

"When recovery does start, it is slow and fragile. It must be nurtured and it takes years, that from personal experience"
* * *
And it has. 10 years ago, I was almost completely bedridden and half-dead because I couldn't get anyone to prescribe the right things, so I continued to spiral downward.
A few years ago, I realized that continuing to clean up after the cleaners was part of what was keeping me sick; rest more now, feel healthier later. Just like my doctor keeps telling me that we need to get me healthy first and THEN worry about my weight, I decided to get me healthy first and THEN worry about getting the house back to as spotless as I like it. Sacrifice the house rather than sacrificing my life. And it worked; nurturing recovery as my primary goal, rather than cleaning the house for visitors who never came, how far from totally bedridden I've come!

Dr. T on Ricki Lake October 26

He corrects the date to the 27th, but according to my calendar, Friday is the 26th.....
[The following information is provided by Jacob Teitelbaum, MD, Medical
Director of the Fibromyalgia & Fatigue Centers, Inc.]


Last week we sent a notice of the subject appearance. This is to amend that
as the date for the show's airing has been changed to Friday, October 27.
Thank you.

In the October 27 episode of the nationally televised Ricki Lake show, Dr.
Jacob Teitelbaum discusses his recently published study using ribose in
fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. In the study, 257 people with
fibromyalgia, at 53 health centers, showed an average 61% increase in energy
and a marked overall improvement in quality of life by taking 5 grams of
ribose three times a day for three weeks. In addition, he discusses his
SHINE Protocol, which in another published study, also dramatically
decreased pain and improved quality of life in people with chronic fatigue
syndrome and fibromyalgia. Please pass this information along to your
friends and support groups.

The show episode begins airing Friday, October 27. To find out the time and
