Basic Fatigue Fighting Protocol


QUESTION

Both myself and my wife are doing wonderful on the blood type diet. However, she works late nights and tends to burn the candle on both ends with her job. When on deadline she complains of chronic fatigue. Any ideas


ANSWER

This is the protocol I recommend to many of my patients for basic fatigue. It is from the newly published Encyclopedia.

BASIC FATIGUE FIGHTING PROTOCOL

Use this protocol for 4 weeks.

GROUP A

Methylcobalamine ('Active B12'): 400mcg before bed

Pantothenic acid: 250mg twice daily

Vitamin C (from Acerola cherry or Rose Hips): 250mg twice daily

GROUP B

Siberian ginseng (Eleutheroccus spp.): 250 mg twice daily

Magnesium: 350 mg twice daily

Melatonin 3mg: 1 capsule at bedtime

Licorice (Glycyrrhiza spp.): 1 cup of tea twice daily (1)

Potassium: 99mg twice daily

GROUP AB

NOTES:

1. Licorice can cause sodium and water retention. It should be used with a potassium supplement or in combination with a high-potassium diet.

2. As always, check with your doctor to see determine that your fatigue is not from any serious health concern.
