Welcome to our ‘CFS & FM Treatment Guide’, a special HEALTHwatch edition. I am proud to bring you the first ever issue of HEALTHwatch that is dedicated solely to the treatment of CFS and FM utilizing the latest pharmaceutical and alternative treatments.
I founded Pro Health Inc., the publisher of HEALTHwatch and the CFIDS and FM Health Resource alternative medicine catalog thirteen years ago after becoming completely disabled with CFS. The company’s mission is to empower patients with information and alternative treatments and to raise funds for research in the hope of finding a cure. Although I am disappointed that no definitive cure has yet been discovered, there are many new and promising treatments available. It is our hope that with the continued great efforts of so many dedicated doctors and researchers, both domestically and internationally along with rapid advances in biotechnology, a cure will be found in the near future.
I am proud of our numerous accomplishments over the years. This includes fundraising over $2.3 million dollars to fund more than 30 individual medical research projects in an effort to find the causes of CFS and FM. Most recently, we have funded research into Human Herpes Virus Six, Mycoplasma Incognitus and Fermentus, and Clamydia Pneumonia. We are presently sponsoring research on a promising new treatment option, transfer factor therapy, along with several other medical studies, and we look forward to bringing you the results.
Some readers may not be aware that a portion of every purchase is donated back to leading national CFS and FM support organizations. It makes no difference whether you purchase your health-related products through HEALTHwatch, the CFS/FM Health Resource catalog, or on the Web at www.ImmuneSupport.com. If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation directly to an organization, just use the envelope provided in the center of this newsletter and 100% of your funds will be directed to the organization of your choice. You will also receive a letter acknowledging receipt of the funds.
I am also proud of our specialized section of CFS and FM nutritional supplements, many of which are supported by scientific research and some that are only available through our Pro Health catalog. The enclosed articles feature the most popular products from our selection of over three hundred nutritional supplements. I have found many of them to be extremely helpful in my own struggle with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Since we all face our own unique health challenges, I encourage you to carefully read the enclosed descriptions of the selected products to determine those that may assist you in the most meaningful way. And, of course, I always recommend you consult with your healthcare practitioner regarding any changes in your treatment regimen.
Best of Health,
P.S. I extend my deepest gratitude to those of you who have or will purchase your health products through Pro Health’s CFS/FM Health Resource catalog, HEALTHwatch, or ImmuneSupport.com. It is those very purchases that enable us to donate our profits to fund medical research to find cures for these diseases.
