Dr. Stoll, question about 'finding the cause'

Posted by Bini on March 30, 2001 at 15:46:19:

Hi Dr. Stoll and everybody else,

one thing I don't really understand or know what to do about is the sentence 'you need to find the root cause in order to get healthy again'. Of course, I know what it means but wonder HOW to be able to find the root cause of my CFS.

I've come to understand that it's all up to the weakening of one's immune system and in your book you wrote that many things add up to each other and by that you come nearer to the dangerous edge of illness.

So for the weakening of the immune system there is most probably not ONE cause. And regarding the bad bugs and other stuff they've found in my blood and elsewhere, I don't know which one was first and I doubt I'll ever be able to find out.

Now, I'm working on my health with general things, with wellness. And on the one hand I read and hear so many great results from wellness and most people are given the same advice even with different diseases (in books or on the internet) and at the same time I still hear over and over again, you need to find the cause in order to get healthy.

Now I wonder, do you think I can get healthy again by practicing wellness without finding the cause? If not, HOW could I find the cause? Or did I get something wrong about this statement?

At the moment wellness seems kind of my only hope to get better/healthy again and this site was the first place I heard about it. Thanks for that.

And thank you also for any input on this one.

Bini

Hi, Bini.

The root cause of CFS is chronic bracing (see archives) that causes lactic acid (the normal physiologic fatigue factor) to accumulate in the muscles (see the archives about CFS).

Let us know what you learn.

Walt
