Dear Dr. T,
Should women with FM/CFIDS stop all medications before trying to conceive? Including: NSAIDS, acetominophen, muscle relaxants, anti-depressants, guiafenesen, neurontin, medications for migraines, and medications for irritable bowel?


Dr. Teitelbaum’s response:
I leave my pregnant patients on the Energy Revitalization System powder as this was also made to be an excellent support for pregnancy. They also need to be on a stabilized, mercury free fish oil (I recommend the Jacob Teitelbaum, M.D.

Dr. Teitelbaum's SHINE Approach to CFS/FM Treatment
In his 30 years of clinical experience, and in his landmark study on Effective Treatment of CFS/FM, Dr Teitelbaum has found that his SHINE approach to treating CFS/FM is successful in the vast majority of patients.

SHINE represents four areas of health issues that need to be addressed when creating a treatment program. These health issues and their roles in treating CFS/FM are as follows:

S = SLEEP: Get adequate sleep, preferably eight to nine hours a night. Sleep replenishes the body's energy and heals its muscles. Inadequate sleep will leave you exhausted and in pain.

H = HORMONES: Get tested for hormone deficiency and treated if needed. Hormone deficiencies can contribute to fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome.

I = INFECTIONS: Get treatment when symptoms of infections occur. The lack of restorative sleep in CFS/FM leads to dysfunctional immune systems. Underlying viral, bacterial, bowel, sinus and yeast infections are common and can be a contributing cause or result of CFS/FM.

N = NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS: Optimal nutritional supplementation is essential. Many nutrients can be depleted as a result of CFS/FM. B-12, magnesium, Acetyl L Carnitine and glutathione, as well as your basic A, B, C and D vitamins need to be supplemented at a level that your average over the counter multivitamin cannot provide.

E = EXERCISE: Exercise as able. After 10 weeks on the 4 steps above, you will be able to slowly increase your exercise—without being wiped out the next day!
