Start Enjoying an Active Life...
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is a baffling and frustrating illness not only for those who have the condition, but also for their loved ones and our nation's dedicated doctors who attempt to treat it.
The frustration among physicians is due to the fact that science has not yet identified the cause or causes of CFS. Thus, the subjects of cause, and therefore a precisely appropriate treatment for the condition are still two very large question marks.
The roller-coaster pattern of illness makes planning impossible
"The hallmark of the illness is fatigue - a fatigue that comes on suddenly and is relentless and relapsing, causing debilitating tiredness or easy fatigability in someone who has no apparent reason for feeling this way. Unlike the mind fog of a serious hangover, to which CFS has been compared, the profound weakness of CFS does not go away with a few good nights sleep but instead slyly steals a person's vigor over months and years.
Along with an exhaustion that leaves many people bedridden, frequent CFS symptoms include headache, muscular and joint pain, sore throat, balance disorders, sensitivity to light, an inability to concentrate, and quirky, inexplicable body aches... The roller-coaster pattern of sickness makes planning impossible and often taxes the patience of the most compassionate friends and relatives." (3)
And the CFS patient is often told by physicians that they can "do nothing except recommend a good shrink." (3) All of this information may sound discouraging, however, it needn't be. The good news is this:
Dramatic relief from a new non-drug approach
Many CFS sufferers are discovering Dramatic RELIEF from a new, entirely non-drug approach. It is an approach that is totally safe to use, employing a 100% non-toxic and natural -- and powerfully effective -- nutritional method. It involves the use of an antioxidant nutritional compound from France that has produced stunning health results across Europe for decades, and that many progressive doctors are now beginning to recommend here in the United States and Canada.
This compound is a patented extract from the bark of the French Maritime Pine Tree (U.S. Patent Number 4,698,360). In an easy to swallow tablet form, has been hailed by researchers as the most potent, natural antioxidant compound.
This patented compound is not a drug and is now readily available in the U.S. without a prescription. Moreover, it is far less costly than traditional drug therapy. It is as safe to use as vitamin C. However, as an antioxidant supplement, it is actually 20 times more powerful than vitamin C, and 50 times more powerful than vitamin E.
Dr. Richard A. Passwater, one of our nation's most respected biochemists, has documented the research done in Europe. Dr. Passwater's book, "Pycnogenol®, The Super Protector Nutrient" (Keats Publishing) documents the research showing that this compound gives relief from as many as 80 different degenerative health challenges.
Why does Pycnogenol® give relief?
There are many theories as to the cause of CFS, but no facts. the table below lists research into the causes of CFS. It also includes Pycnogenol research that explains why CFS sufferers are finding this patented compound is literally providing them with a non-drug, new lease on life:
Pycnogenol®s Outstanding Safety
The safety of Pycnogenol® has been reviewed in depth by Dr. Peter Rohdewald of the Pharmacology Institute of the University of Munster in Germany during the 1990 International Pycnogenol Symposium in Bordeaux. Dr. Rohdewald stated Pycnogenol® is a safe natural product with no adverse side effects whatsoever.("The New Superantioxidant-Plus", Keats Publishing,1992.)
Although we have traced the history of Pycnogenol® through more than 450 years, and although it has been used for decades, it seems destined to wider popularity and utility as researchers understand more about it. We have just scratched the surface.("The New Superantioxidant-Plus", Keats Publishing,1992.)
Not All Pycnogenol® Are Created Equal...
Not all Pycnogenol® are created equal... The excipients, flow agents, and binders used in preparing Pycnogenol® tablets make all the difference in how it is absorbed by the body. Many companies use low quality cellulose to hold the tablets together, and excipients that make the Pycnogenol® practically non-absorbable. A formulation that enhances rather than detracts from the body's ability to absorb the Pycnogenol® is the difference felt by people trying Pycnogenol®. Many brands in North America test only 10% or 12% bio-available, and none of the other brands test over 30% bio-available.
Special formulation enables 95% absorption of Pycnogenol®
Our exclusive proprietory formulation (protected with a second patent) enhances rather than detracts from the body's ability to absorb the Pycnogenol® (this is bioavailability). Each 20mg tablet is 95% bio-available.
"The special formulation of this Pycnogenol® compound has been proven to bring amazing results in numerous clinical conditions. There are now many companies in the United States now selling Pycnogenol® and many others now illegally infringing on the registered trademarked name, selling grape seed extract compounds and mixing it with pine bark extract.
There has been no scientific research done on these extracts that can compare with the research done on Pycnogenol®. The results that I have had with this product, are from only one company, and it has the compound with the special formulation that Charles Haimoff (president of Horphag Research Ltd., the Pycnogenol® patent owner) has granted them exclusively." -Dr. W.
