Dr. Holtorf's research was further confirmed in an observational study following the conditions of 500 patients from his clinic, where all of the patients were given cortisol as part of their treatment protocol:
-- 94 percent showed improvement by the fourth visit;
-- 75 percent noted significant improvement;
-- 62 percent reported substantial improvement; and
-- Energy levels and a general sense of well-being for patients doubled by the fourth visit.
The effectiveness of this multi-system treatment was further confirmed through the analysis of the cumulative findings of over 40 independent physicians and over 5,000 patients.
As shown in the Journal of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome study, cortisol doses of 5-to-15 mg a day have been shown to be safe, with little or no associated risk while having the potential for significant benefit for CFS and FM patients.
"Cortisol treatment carries significantly less risk and a greater potential for benefit than treatments considered to be the standard of care for both conditions," Dr. Holtorf explains.
What is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?
Chronic fatigue syndrome, or CFS, is a debilitating and complex disease
characterized by profound fatigue that is not improved by bed rest and that
may be worsened by physical or mental activity. Persons with CFS most often
function at a substantially lower level of activity than they were capable
of before the onset of illness. In addition, patients report various
symptoms, such as weakness, muscle pain, impaired memory and/or mental
concentration, insomnia, and post-exertional fatigue lasting more than 24
hours. In some cases, CFS can persist for years. The cause or causes of CFS
have not been identified and
