Mitchell Medical Group’s Treatment of Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue and Candida: “The Real Deal” to Getting Better

Fibromyalgia,Chronic Fatigue andCandida are some of the most difficult conditions to treat. Ask any physician – most don’t even want to see a patient that thinks they have any of these medical problems because they don’t believe they arereal. Well, at Mitchell Medical Group not only do we believe these debilitating medical diseases are real, we have some of the best treatment protocols toget our patients better in a 30 day period. This is why we like to refer to our treatment asThe Real Deal.

Fibromyalgia

This medical disease is a consortium of pain all over the body. Its cause has eluded modern medicine for now, but researchers are exploring all types of possible reasons the body’s pain system goes into overdrive. The frustrating part for physicians seeing these patients is that there isn’t a specific blood test or radiology test that can confirm the diagnosis. At Mitchell Medical Group, we see so many patients that fit the general criteria based on a detailed clinical history that we are confident we can help these patients. After doing our extensive testing checking immune markers and vitamin and mineral levels, we offer our patients our intensive 30 day protocol to reverse their symptoms. Our “Real Deal” program is based on protocols developed by Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum, the country’s leading expert in this area and someone we have worked extensively with to help our patients. The “Real Deal” treatment involves in many casesIV vitamin therapy with special combination of vitamins and minerals along with gamma globulin injections that decreases the inflammation in the body.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

For almost two decades, any patient that presented with the complaint ofchronic fatigue was labelled a malingerer- the medical term for someone faking an illness for secondary gain. At Mitchell Medical Group, we have treated numerous hard-working patients that for some obscure reason their body just gave out. In some cases, we do find a cause: a severe infection, such as Mononucleosis(due to theEpstein-Barr virus) or an endocrine imbalance in the thyroid or the more difficult to detect adrenal gland dysfunction. Again, we have protocols developed by Dr. Teitelbaum that have enabled our patients to get back their strength to return to work and get their lives back. InChronic Fatigue syndrome ourhigh dose IV vitamin C with other key B vitamins along with dietary changes seems to be the key to getting better again within a 30 day period.

Candida or Yeast Overgrowth Syndrome

Gosh, a decade ago if someone said they think they haveCandida the doctor would look at them like they were crazy – the typical response would be: “only AIDS patients or cancer patients with compromised immune systems could have Candida.” But at Mitchell Medical Group, we have been diagnosingCandida overgrowth for over two decades. We recognized what is now commonly accepted science: that a disruption in the proper balance of our good and bad bacteria (our microbiome) has led to a plethora of medical symptoms that have affected patients and confused physicians. The range of Candida symptoms: gastric bloating, constipation as well as areas outside the gut, such as vaginitis in woman to sinusitis…and even affecting the central nervous system with problems like poor concentration and memory lapses – “ Brain fog”- are now being better understood.

Fortunately, we have anintensive proven program to help our Candida patients:

  • 1 st, we can properly diagnose them through careful history taking.
  • 2 nd, we are trained with simple skin testing that aids in supporting a Candida or yeast overgrowth.
  • 3 rd, we have a combination of tools in adjusting a patient’s diet, use of supplements(vitamins, fish oils, probiotics) and our special expertise in sublingual immunotherapy to build up a person’s immunity to keep the Candida in check permanently.

The Bottom Line: in the area of holistic medicine there are lots of practioners (chiropractors, acupuncturists) doing interesting work to help patients with the above conditions. But I know that patients when they are committing their time, their money and most importantly their health are looking for “The Real Deal.”
