Jay A. Goldstein, M.D.’s Unique Treatment Protocol for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome & Fibromyalgia
“Miracles are happening in the lives of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and fibromyalgia (FM) patients every day, thanks to Dr. Goldstein.” That’s how Katie Courmel, writer and CFS patient, sums up the benefits to Dr. Jay Goldstein’s unique CFS/FM treatment protocol.
Fibromyalgia, Excessive Nitric Oxide/Peroxynitrite and Excessive NMDA Activity
Prof. Martin L. Pall writes, “The most characteristic symptom of fibromyalgia is multiorgan pain and it is known that both excessive NMDA [neurotransmitter system] activity and excessive nitric oxide levels can generate pain. Nitric oxide is known to stimulate some but not all of the nociceptors, the neurons that generate the sensation of pain. Peroxynitrite is implicated in generating pain responses, as well. Other symptoms are similar to those in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and may be generated by mechanisms consistent with a nitric oxide/peroxynitrite etiology.”
A Shaky Foundation: Different Illnesses Yet the Same Name? Differences in the CFS Community Today
Craig Maupin of the CFIDS Report writes, “For emerging illnesses such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), quality medical care and research will start with clear distinctions. But unfortunately for those with CFS, it is those distinctions that the CFS research community often seems to want to blur, downplay, and integrate.”

RESEARCH SPOTLIGHT: Relora
Relora®, a natural patent-pending plant extract of Magnolia and Philodendron proved highly effective in recent clinical studies, helping to alleviate stress induced obesity, anxiety and irritability, according to Next Pharmaceuticals Inc., the product’s manufacturer.
The research showes Relora significantly alters the hormone levels associated with stress-induced obesity. These findings not only support earlier research demonstrating that Relora provides significant relaxation and more restful sleep in stressed individuals, but that it also offers new hope for many people whose weight problems are often stress-related.
