What is CFS Disease?

What is CFS Disease?
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, (CFS) is defined as a complex disorder characterized by extreme fatigue. But if you read my last blog, or if you suffer from this condition, then you are aware that the symptoms go far beyond fatigue.

The onset of my symptoms began in 1989. When my Internist could find no explanation for the extreme fatigue, headaches, muscle and joint aches, and foggy mind that I suffered from, he handed me a prescription for antidepressants and referred me to a therapist. My symptoms got progressively worse until I was no longer able to work at my corporate job.

Having never suffered from anything that a short course of antibiotics wouldn’t fix, I had no idea that I would end up on disability for nine years. It’s mind-boggling that after nearly 30 years of research there are still no concrete answers for what causes this condition.

CFS cannot be defined as a disease because it fails to meet the criteria of a “disease.” The word “syndrome” is used to refer to a group of symptoms defined as a medical mystery – hence the name, "Chronic Fatigue Syndrome." Typically, diseases can be easily identified whereas syndromes are more difficult to identify.

Since chronic fatigue syndrome consists of so many symptoms - symptoms that vary from patient to patient - treatment will depend on the individual patient’s needs. According to the MayoClinic, treatment for chronic fatigue syndrome consists of medications and therapy. The Centers for DiseaseControl and Prevention describes the treatment of CFS as “complex” and one that should be customized to the patient.

After seven long years of following medical advice with no improvement whatsoever, I decided to reclaim my power. My healthcare providers had prescribed so many drugs that I had reached a point where could no longer identify if my symptoms were a result of my CFS or side effects of the medications I was taking.

My recovery required a well-rounded and balanced approach that began with me making well-informed decisions.

Watch this video for more information on methods I used to recover.

What Are the Symptoms of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?

If you are suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome, then you will most likely agree that the name is inappropriate. Although CFS does produce debilitating, chronic fatigue, the symptoms go far beyond fatigue. As a result, your friends, family, and coworkers probably have no idea what you suffer from on a daily basis. 

A person suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome will experience four or more of the following symptoms:

  • Extreme debilitating fatigue and exhaustion
  • Short-term memory loss
  • Difficulty concentrating (Brain Fog)
  • Frequent sore throats
  • Swollen, sore lymph nodes
  • Muscle and joint pain (Fibromyalgia)
  • Headaches
  • Unrefreshing sleep and difficulty staying awake
  • Low-grade fevers
  • Multi-chemical sensitivity (MCS)
  • Dizziness, balance problems, and fainting
  • Inability to recover from exercise
  • Depression and irritability

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a proper diagnosis involves ruling out other illnesses that may have similar symptoms such as:

  • Lyme disease,
  • rheumatoid arthritis,
  • multiple sclerosis,
  • diabetes,
  • hypothyroidism,
  • mononucleosis,
  • lupus,
  • chronic hepatitis.

For some, life is manageable, but for most the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome make life unmanageable. 

As with any severe chronic condition, depression is always a concern. Although chronic fatigue syndrome is not considered fatal, a percentage of fatalities from this condition are associated with suicide. Sadly, sometimes the suffering becomes unbearable.

There is hope! 

I describe my personal 10-year experience with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome in two parts: A 7-year journey tumbling into the depths of pain and illness, multiple surgeries, massive amounts of medications, never-ending doctor appointments, doubt and worry, financial ruin, and hopelessness, followed by a 3-year journey of hope transformed into faith, renewed physical strength, restored health and wellness, self-empowerment, and unexpected magical and mystical life transformations.

If you think you are suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, (also known as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME), the first step is to get a proper diagnosis from a qualified medical professional. Unfortunately, some doctors use CFS/ME as a “catch-all” diagnosis when no other conclusion seems apparent. 

It’s essential to your health and well-being to make sure you have a qualified doctor who rules out all other conditions first. Watch this video about Choosing the Right Doctor to Treat Your Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Best Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Treatment

healing chronic fatigue syndrome
Being a pioneer of chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia is not an accomplishment I would post on my resume however it is significant if you’re reading this article. 

My symptoms began in 1986 and took more than two years to properly diagnosis. Back then, chronic fatigue syndrome was known as Epstein-Barr virus. 

More recently the illness is being referred to as “myalgic encephalomyelitis.” This condition ruins lives no matter what label is placed on it.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 1 million Americans currently suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.  And, unfortunately, after over 30 years of research, leading hospitals and research centers including the Mayo Clinic still report that there is no cure. 

But I am here to tell you otherwise. I know because I’ve been fully recovered since 1999.

During my battle with this hideous illness  that lasted nearly a decade, I considered myself fortunate to have some of the best doctors available. I was treated at one of the leading research centers for CFS/ME in the country, the Center for Persons with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome at the University of Medicine and Dentistry in Newark, New Jersey. 

Unfortunately, a cure was never discovered. Treatment consisted of an overwhelming variety of pharmaceuticals intended to help manage symptoms and improve the quality of daily life. In my case, the pharmaceutical cocktail prepared and prescribed by the staff psychopharmacologist backfired. The side effects from the drugs were worse than the symptoms of the illness.

It was time to take matters into my hands. My recovery would take nearly three years and consist of an integrative approach developed on my own. And now I’m ready to share what I learned with you.

Watch this video interview on YouTube with Kim Hahn where I discuss parts of my journey.

If you would like to contact me about chronic fatigue syndrome treatment or any other health & wellness issue, please visit my Health and Wellness Coaching website.

The Two Faces of Cancer

Meet Jill

Jill is 52 years old. She has three children between the ages of 19 and 10. She’s been happily married for 27 years and has a satisfying and rewarding career in nursing.

On the outside, she is a happy, bubbly, loving person. Jill likes everyone and most everyone likes her. But sadly Jill is battling her third round of breast cancer in less than five years.

Her biggest fear is that she won’t be around to enjoy her grandchildren. She is worried and confused. The stress is manifesting as excess weight that is diminishing her health even further.

Jill says, “My biggest challenge is fatigue… Sprinkled with stress. I know what I need to do - it frustrates and baffles me that I cannot do it.”

Jill is the perfect client for my program because she has a strong desire to get well and stay well. She will continue working with her doctors and undergo chemo. But she wants to do more. She wants to empower herself to get well.

She knows handing her health over to her doctors is not enough if she wants to recover for good this time.

Within the first few weeks of enrolling in the program, she has discovered many things about herself that are standing in the way of her recovery from cancer. She is recognizing inherited, generational behaviors - behaviors she learned and is now passing on to her daughter. She is discovering that the stress of being sick is keeping her sick.

Jill is on a path of self-discovery! Together we are working  to:

  • identify the thoughts and actions causing her stress,

  • develop techniques to reduce her stress,

  • replace fear and doubt with hope and belief,

  • discover and release deep-seated limiting beliefs,

  • accelerate her healing with alternative therapies and techniques, proper nutrition, and better sleep.

For the first time in years, Jill has replaced hope with BELIEF in her ability to thrive! She truly believes she can make a full recovery.

If this sounds like you or someone you know, there is hope!

I Get Asked All the Time, "What do you do?"

What is Health & Wellness Coaching?

Health and wellness coaching is defined as a partnership where the health coach assists the client in gaining the knowledge, skills, tools, and confidence to become an active participant in their care and recovery so that they can reach their self-identified health goals and maintain them long-term.

What does a health coach do?

A qualified coach helps in may ways.

  • Uncovering the blocks that cause the illness in the first place – It's a well-known fact that stress causes illness. Unfortunately, illness also causes stress. Even though the body has broken down to the point of manifesting illness, it's not too late to uncover the blocks that caused the illness and are in the way of recovery. This is an essential step toward achieving recovery. 

  • Coaches help to bridge the gap between the physician and the patient – Too often doctors and other healthcare providers are limited in the amount of time they have to spend with patients often leaving the patient bewildered and confused. A qualified coach can help sort out this confusion and assist the patient in making informed decisions regarding their medical care. The coach can serve as a liaison helping to ensure that the client is making well-informed decisions.

  • Assist with the emotional impact of chronic illness – Being diagnosed with a chronic condition can leave you feeling devastated and completely lost. A qualified coach will assist in sorting through these feelings with compassion and concern while remaining unbiased, meaning keeping the client’s well-being the main focus. A coach will help to instill a sense of control creating a more empowered patient.

  • Assist in exploring all available treatments – A qualified coach will help explore options such as nutrition, exercise, alternative therapies, and mind-body work; basically anything and everything that may help and not do further harm.

  • Maintaining Stability – There are many, many moving parts while dealing with a chronic condition. A coach will help to keep the client on track thus improving the chances for recovery.

  • Promoting behavioral changes – Behavioral changes are one of the most important components to ensuring recovery. A great coach will assist the client in setting the proper mindset especially in the following areas:

    • prior to and following surgical procedures

    • mind-body medicine

    • nutrition

    • exercise

    • education

    • coping with relationships

    • coping with work challenges

    • managing the household

    • ...and much, much more.

Are you ready to get started? Or maybe you need more information. Contact me today by clicking here and filling out the form to learn more.

Studies by the medical community show those patients who work with a health and wellness coach advance up to 50% better than those who don’t.

Are You Struggling to Achieve Your Goals and Dreams?

Every person on the planet regardless of age, occupation, economic status, religious or spiritual affiliations (or lack thereof) has beliefs that can prevent them from reaching their full potential. We are programmed from the moment of our conception by what we see, hear, and feel.  Although we cannot change our past, we can rewrite and master the programs that run our lives – programs we did not choose.

The programming continues daily through the bombardment of media. Let’s face it, drama sells. We’ve become a society addicted to drama. Need proof? Simply review the prime-time program listing of your cable or satellite provider on any given night.
Science now proves that as little as 30 minutes of negativity is enough to activate the “fight, flight or freeze response”  which then releases hormones intended to help us protect ourselves. But when there is no real danger, these hormones have a damaging effect on the body, mind, and spirit.

Think about it. You can watch your favorite movie over and over and still have an emotional response such as fear, excitement, sorrow, or joy even though you are fully aware of the outcome and/or you know the story isn’t true or real. It’s easy to fool the brain.

So how do we repair the damage done by years of exposure to negativity and false beliefs?

There are several ways including different forms of hypnosis and processes like EMDR. Cell biologist, Bruce Lipton states in his book, The Biology of Belief, that PSYCH-K® is his preferred method for effectively reprogramming the subconscious mind.  PSYCH-K allows you to quickly and painlessly change subconscious beliefs that are limiting the full expression of your potential  including your mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being.

There is no reason to struggle any longer.  A successful, meaningful,  and fulfilled life is within your grasp thanks to PSYCH-K.

Everyone can benefit from PSYCH-K. If you’re looking to resolve any of the following issues, PSYCH-K will work.

  • End self-sabotaging beliefs

  • Restore your confidence and self-worth

  • Release stress, worry, and grief

  • Transform fear into confidence

  • Regain your personal power

  • Resolve physical conditions related to disease

To learn more about PSYCH-K, visit the website or contact me either by using the information listed in my LinkedIn profile or by visiting my website's contact page. Let’s discuss your challenge(s) and decide together if this process is right for you. I offer sessions both in-person and via Skype.

The ‘secret to life’ is BELIEF. Rather than genes, it is our beliefs that control our lives. PSYCH-K is a simple, self-empowering process to change your beliefs and perceptions that impact your life at a cellular level. I have personal experience with PSYCH-K and I am confident in its integrity, simplicity and effectiveness.”

— Bruce Lipton, Ph.D. Cellular Biologist, author of The Biology of Belief 

I had a private session with Teresa last week and was shocked at the outcome. The sense of calmness in my daily life has been a blessing! I can't wait to do it again. — Suzann B.

I had a great PSYCH-K session with Teresa that focused on personal relationships. I felt a positive shift during our session and left feeling lighter. It was put to the test the next day when I visited family. There was a subtle but profound change in a relationship that was often difficult. It was softer and tenderer. I am very grateful for this positive change! — Flynne M.

Does It Take Courage and Curiosity to Recover from Chronic Illness?

I speak with potential clients on a regular basis suffering from chronic health conditions that say they want to get well.  They tell me they want to work with me but fail to take action. I hear all types of excuses disguised as reasons. Why is that? What would cause a person to choose to remain chronically ill?
The answer is simple. Fear of change.

It is easy for me to detect hesitation and fear by carefully listening. As a skilled health and wellness coach, I hear both what they say and what they don’t say. I empathize because I know what it took for me, after seven long years of chronic illness and disability, to make the decision that I wanted to get well. It required both courage and curiosity.

I doubt many of my clients would classify themselves as courageous. Most of them come to me afraid and tentative. What sets them apart is a strong desire to change their current situation.

When I look back at the major events in my life, deciding to get well was the most impactful decision I ever made.  It was also the most difficult. Like my clients, I wouldn't have said I was courageous. I too was afraid and tentative, but I knew I to wanted a different life. I wanted to be healthy again. I desperately wanted my life back.  As with any major decision my inner voices were bombarding me with doubts and “what if” questions.

  •  What if I can’t get well?

  •  What if I can’t find a job?

  • What if I give up my disability and then I have a relapse?

  • Will I be able to handle the expectations put upon me?

  • What if I’m not prepared for the changes?

  • Will I have the courage to give up people places and things that are standing in my way?

  • What will people think of me?

  • How will my life change and will I be able to handle it?

  • And the biggest one of all - What if I fail?

Many people avoid change because it "seems" easier and less stressful to remain in a life situation where we know what to expect. Change forces us to deal with the unknown. Additionally, for those suffering from a chronic illness, their condition often provides valid justification to avoid people, places, and situations. It can be comforting to know that you always have an excuse to fall back on - a reason to cop out.  It is far more difficult to open ourselves to make the necessary changes to get well. But I’m here to tell you it is well worth the risk!

Looking back now, I can see that it took both courage and curiosity. My curiosity caused me to begin searching for answers that Western medicine was failing to provide. Once my decision was made, I was willing to do almost anything to get well. And it took a tremendous amount of courage to ignore those little voices in my head that tried to make me believe it was easier to stay sick. It wasn't.Chronic illness is just one of the many life situations that can pose these types of challenges. Many people choose to stay in jobs they hate, abusive relationships, unhealthy environments, etc. simply because of the fear of loss and the fear of change. Being afraid can prevent us from taking all types of actions including ending an unhealthy relationship, committing to a new relationship, moving to a new city, going back to school, breaking an unhealthy habit, launching a new business idea… the list goes on.

Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says I’ll try again tomorrow.  — Mary Anne Radmacher

So what can a person do to create change in their life?How does a person find the courage to make changes that seem so difficult?

It starts with being curious!

Measure Your Mental & Physical Health by Looking in Your Trashcan

I learned the difference between garbage and trash early in life having grown up on a small farm.

Garbage consists of things that will naturally decompose such as apple cores, banana peels, and vegetable trimmings – basically, anything that comes from the kitchen that will naturally decompose is garbage.

At our house garbage was also defined by things that the chickens and pigs would eat. Everything else was considered trash. If you are someone who composts for your garden, then you know the difference between garbage and trash.

So how can looking in your trashcan help you determine how mentally and physically healthy you are? It’s simple - you are what you eat. This phrase originated in 1826 by French author Anthelme Brillat-Savarin wrote:
“Tell me what you eat and I will tell you what you are.”

He was stating that the foods one eats have a direct correlation to one’s state of mind and health.

More recently, Dr. David Perlmutter explains in his book Brain Maker that a sick gut flora affects not only the immune system but mental health as well. Dr. Perlmutter believes that microorganisms in the gut have been undervalued by traditional medicine. Some scientists are now calling the intestinal flora the “second brain”.
He goes on to explain that he believes poor gut flora is the cause for the rapid increase in neurological diseases including ADD, ADHD, Dementia, and Alzheimer’s.
So what does this have to do with your trashcan? Everything! If you’re eating a healthy diet jam-packed with fruits and vegetables you will find that your trashcan consists of more garbage than trash.

Although most of us are aware of the importance of good nutrition, too many of us allow our busy schedules and easy access to fast foods to get in the way of eating properly. If we want to be healthy, stay healthy, or improve deteriorated health, then it’s important to look at several factors including stress levels, exercise, sleeping habits, and proper nutrition.

It’s unfortunate that the typical American diet is loaded with unhealthy fats, sugars, artificial flavorings and colorings, and preservatives. It’s important to understand that whatever you eat gets processed through your digestive tract moving through your bloodstream and into all parts of your body.

We’ve become a nation addicted to the quick fix: everything from calorie free drinks so that we can enjoy ourselves and not suffer the consequences of calories to relying on pharmaceuticals to fix the problems that we ourselves create by not taking care of ourselves. It’s time we start taking responsibility for our own health.

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”

― Hippocrates
ca. 460 BC – 370 BC
I challenge you to look in your trashcan and compare the amount of garbage versus the amount of trash. If your trashcan is filled with empty boxes, processed food containers, and bottles and cans from beverages filled with artificial sweeteners, colorings, and flavors then your health is at risk. It’s time to turn that around and it’s never too late to start. If your diet is completely out of control and you think you may need help you should contact a nutritional expert. There are also several great books available. Here are a few recommendations:

Your Doctor May Be Keeping You Sick

As a Health and Wellness Coach, I have numerous conversations with others concerning Western medicine. There are some who strongly believe that the majority of Western medicine is a conspiracy to keep us sick for the sake of profits especially when it comes to the pharmaceutical industry. I do not believe this is true. I believe that the majority of our medical and pharmaceutical community deserve our respect.

Let’s consider the fact that some patients would damage their health even further or even die without medical and pharmaceutical intervention. If I have a heart attack or break a bone I want to be taken to the hospital. If I suffered from an illness such as epilepsy, high blood pressure, or diabetes I would rely on my medication to help keep me safe.

The problem as I see it is that many believe Western medicine has all the answers when in fact they do not. As someone who helps people recover from chronic health conditions I explained to my clients that when a doctor tells them there is no cure, it doesn’t mean there isn’t one. It simply means medical science has not found one yet.

In my opinion, it is a mistake when any medical professional steals hope from a patient. When a medical professional embeds the idea into a patient’s mind that there is no cure or that they only have a few months to live they are helping to keep the patient sick or even die.

Many of us are familiar with the placebo effect. This is when a substance such as a sugar pill has positive effects as the result of the "patient's perception".  But have you heard of the nocebo effect? The nocebo effect is when a detrimental effect on one’s health is produced by a psychological or psychosomatic factor such as negative expectations of treatment or prognosis. And this is exactly what happens to many patients when their health care professional’s words rob them of any hope of recovery.

Medical science is exactly that - a science. Science is the study of a particular subject through observation and experimentation. Science accepts or rejects ideas and draws conclusions based on the evidence. Most likely, if you are diagnosed with a terminal condition and you ask your doctor what your chances are, the answer you hear will be based on statistics. And that’s fine. Personally, I would prefer to hear the truth. However, I would love for my doctor to instill some hope no matter how minute. Even if there were less than a 1% chance of recovery, I would welcome the words, “There is a chance for recovery – There is hope.”

I am reminded of when my 79-year-old mother was diagnosed with cancer. Her doctor told her she had six months to live. In my mother’s mind the priest and the doctor were never wrong. The seed had been planted. We visited a second doctor at Memorial Sloan-Kettering, one of the top cancer treatment centers in New York City. The doctor was young and I recall watching as he tried to give her a glimmer of hope, but it was useless. The doctor whom she had trusted for nearly 20 years had already planted the seed and it was growing quickly. The words of her doctor became a self-fulfilling prophecy. My mother died nearly six months to the day of that diagnosis.

I wonder how things may have been different for my mother if her doctor had told her, “It could be six months or it could be six years.” Unfortunately, we will never know the answer to that.

Time, sympathy and understanding must be lavishly dispensed, but the reward is to be found in that personal bond which forms the greatest satisfaction of the practice of medicine. One of the essential qualities of the clinician is interest in humanity, for the secret of the care of the patient is in caring for the patient.

— Dr. Francis W. Peabody 
Although I require few medical visits, I have noticed that when I make an appointment to see my doctor, I immediately begin to feel better. I’ve experienced times when I began feeling so much better while driving to my doctor’s office that I wondered if I really needed the appointment after all. Then I read about a powerful placebo effect, the power to heal that comes from a caring and compassionate doctor, in the book Mind Over Medicine: Scientific Proof That You Can Heal Yourself by Lissa Rankin M.D. What I read in Dr. Rankins fascinating book was nearly a word-for-word description of what I experience  just by making the appointment with and driving to my doctor – a doctor that I believe truly cares about me. I am fortunate to have such a doctor.

What does this mean to you? It means that having the right doctor can make a huge difference in your health and recovery. There may be times when choosing skill over compassion is the right choice, but if you can get both then choose both.

How do you feel about your doctor? And how does your doctor feel about you? Choose wisely.

Do Affirmations Leave You Feeling Hopeless?

Affirmations have been touted over the last century by many of the most highly respected thought leaders.

Even as far back as 1937, Napoleon Hill recommended affirmations as a way to achieve dreams, goals, and desires in his famous book, Think and Grow Rich

Today, Louise Hay, Marianne Williamson, Abraham-Hicks and even Tony Robbins (just to name a few) recommend affirmations as an effective way to change your life.

It is believed that repeating a positive statement over and over can shift your reality and help you to attain the life you desire. But for some, they simply do not work.

Don’t worry, you are not broken. The reason affirmations don’t work for some people is simple. There is a deep-seated subconscious belief that is contrary to the affirmation.

Dr. Bruce Lipton, a developmental biologist best known for promoting the idea that genes and DNA can be manipulated by a person's beliefs tells us that the subconscious mind operates at 40 million bits per second whereas the conscious mind operates at a mere 40 bits per second. Consequently, your subconscious mind is driving the train of your life.

Despite all the best intentions, massive amounts of desire, and attempts to use physical effort, you are simply doomed to fail if your subconscious is working against you. This often leads to feelings of complete hopelessness causing one to simply give up.

Dr. Lipton also tells us that there are ways to literally change our pre-coded DNA and shift those unwanted subconscious beliefs! You are not doomed to a life driven by deep-seated unwanted subconscious beliefs, nor are you a victim of your DNA.

One of his favorite methods for changing subconscious beliefs is a process called PSYCH-K® which he writes about in his book, The Biology of Belief. Although PSYCH-K has been available for 25 years, I just discovered it in the spring of 2015.
 “PSYCH-K represents one of the most important, efficient, effective, and rapid change processes that is available on this planet today.” – Dr. Bruce Lipton, PSYCH-K Online Facilitator’s Conference 2014

So what exactly is PSYCH-K®?

According to the originator, Rob Williams, PSYCH-K is:
  • A non-invasive, interactive process of change with a proven record of success!

  • A simple, yet powerful process to change subconscious beliefs that are self-limiting and self-sabotaging.

  • A process that transcends the standard methods of visualization, affirmations, will power, and positive thinking and is especially effective in the areas of behavioral/habit change, wellness, and stress reduction.

I have been able to transform my own life as well as the lives of my clients since learning PSYCH-K® and because of this, it is my intention to introduce this powerful process to as many people as possible;
  • to anyone who feels as though they just can’t get out of their own way,

  • to other coaches and facilitators dedicated to improving the lives of others.

This is why I’ve decided to bring PSYCH-K to my hometown in North Carolina. I will be sponsoring a Basic Workshop the first weekend in March 2016. If you are interested in learning more about PSYCH-K or would like to attend a workshop, simply click this link.

Let’s get people healed!
