This is a testimony written by Jeffrey Beyerl. Thanks for writing, thank goodness you’re feeling better.
“Age 24, Male, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (also known as myalgic encephalomyelitis)
My condition meant that I was slowly losing my strength both physically and mentally every day. If I tried to push myself it would lead to a spike in my symptoms and I would then be even weaker going forward. I was fairly bed bound, I took a LOT of long baths, and I couldn’t be around people for very long before my limbs stopped working right and I couldn’t think straight. Before I start I need to say that the diet isn’t everything as I still need supplements to support me, I stopped taking one (methylpro) and my symptoms did begin to return but not as severely. That said the results of the diet were immediate. Within a day I was already feeling better, less muscle pain, less brain fog, and I was able to be around people for longer periods of time. It has been 2 months and I am now able to walk without my cane for 2 blocks every day, cook 3 meals a day, and have enough energy to watch some TV shows and even play some video games again. I always thought being full meant your stomach had to hurt but this diet has shown me that is not the case, I eat more chicken than I thought possible and I am loving it. I can’t thank you enough for taking the time to share this diet as it has helped to improve my quality of life more than I had ever thought possible. I had previously talked with my family about ending my own life because I couldn’t stand to be such a burden on them, not because of depression but simply because the reality was I was useless and there was no hope for treatment. Now I’m able to help out around the house and finally have some hope that I might work again someday. It wasn’t easy to transition, the sugar cravings were very painful for the first month but now I’m still astonished as just how good I feel. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.”
1. What was your diet before?
2. What is you diet now? (do you keep a food journal?)
3. When did you start this diet (2 months ago?) Are you still transitioning into it?
4. What supplements do you take?
Congratulations!!! I hope you post regular updates.
amazing story jeffrey. hope you recover fully brother
My heart goes out to you Jeffrey. If you feel strong enough you may want to check online course out like http://www.open.edu/openlearn/
they are free. I do them and some other online universities offer courses on FutureLearn, edx. They offer certificates but I do not buy them. I just like learning. It helps to keep your mind focused on good things. All the best to you.
That´s great Jeffrey, life is still great. I hope you get a job in the future. I am a video gamer too!
