Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) – – Sue Hastie

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)

July 2010

My Story so far: I am a 45 year old female who was diagnosed with chronic fatigue a little over 2 years ago. Leading up to my melt down I lead an extremely active social life, some might say too active, I attended gym twice a week in a personal training programme so I was reasonably fit, my diet was well balanced and life was good. Then all of a sudden just out of the blue I started to feel tired – not just tired exhausted! I went from being a bubbly outgoing person to a woman who couldn’t walk more than 10 feet without needing to lie down. My once busy lifestyle of work, running kids around and socialising came to a screaming halt and my life changed over night. I had to reduce my work schedule down to 2 or 3 hours every other day and slept up to 16 hours a day. I wasn’t able to function in the home at all; just walking was a chore let alone making dinner. Whilst some days were better than others my life was basically function as best as I possibly could on what little energy I had to get through each day.
Medically there is not a lot you can do for this illness, but most importantly you must find what caused it in the first place. After trudging from one doctor to the next with exhaustive and expensive tests we discovered a few causes which were predominantly diet based. So how to fix this problem: after 40 odd years of ingesting foods that my body couldn’t tolerate I had to change my diet and cut these food groups out, this alone is not an overnight fix due to the build up in my system. I then went on what I call the search for the “holy grail of energy” I have spent thousands on health supplements and whilst some have worked for a while others were just a waste of money, but when you are desperate you will try anything to get your life back to normal. Mid last year I started yet another herbal regime which has helped get me back to some form of enablement if I prioritise what I use my energy for, all in all I was happy with this as I felt some normal life resuming again. Then our good friend Jody returned from overseas singing the virtues of the water ionizer and told me 2 years is too long for me to be feeling this way. We then installed the Ionizer beginning of May this year and I haven’t looked back since. For the first few weeks I stayed on my supplements and drank a minimum of 2 litres per day. My energy levels have improved daily, I even spent 6 hours trudging around the city on a shopping spree a couple of weeks ago – that alone is a miracle in itself. I have since stopped taking all supplements and am now only drinking the water and I am feeling fantastic, in fact I was on my feet all day Saturday and went to a party that night – that is one amazing feat to a person who suffers CFS even more amazing I have had no “Payback” the following day, where as I would have been laid up for days had I attempted this before Ionized water. Whilst I know there is no “quick fix” as CFS is a virus which has to run its course I can honestly say that this alkaline water to date has improved my health and energy levels 10 fold, in fact it could quite possibly be the “Holy Grail of Energy”.

I would encourage everybody to drink this amazing water either to help an aliment or just as insurance to stay healthy.
