The “Miracle” Weight Loss Supplement - Garcinia Cambogia » Dr. Rodger Murphree
"I like Dr. Oz, I really do, but I'm less than impressed with some of his recommendations. Fortunately they are safe, but do these natural weight loss remedies really work?"

I like Dr. Oz, too, because he does address CFS and fibro as if they're real diseases, but he never seems to have on the experts who talk about the more serious aspects. He invites Dr. T, with his wrong-headed advice to exercise your way back to health. Unless you're already back to 80-85%, exercise will backfire and land you back in bed.
When a doctor insisted that my previous experience with exercise didn't count because I hadn't taken contemporaneous notes, I was mis-remembering the results, I took a week when I felt well enough to walk to a store 6 blocks away every day to pick up something for lunch (since I knew that after exercising I wouldn't have energy to cook). The first day, I collapsed into bed upon return and had to rest a couple hours. The second day, I collapsed into bed upon return and had to rest longer. By the end of the week, I tried to get out of bed and crumpled to the floor, unable to walk even the few feet to the bathroom. And this time I documented absolutely everything about it, every increased symptom, to prove that exercise makes me feel worse, not better.
It took weeks to get back to baseline, and I made sure to document that, too.
