Dr. Dobie has a considerable experience in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) treatment. For three years he was co-director of a clinic at Manly Waters Private Hospital, Sydney, which specialised in CFS treatment. Patients traveled from all over Australia to be admitted to this clinic.
CFS can have many causes. Some of the most common causes are:
– Severe stress
– Exposure to toxic chemicals
– Infections such as glandular fever and Lyme disease.
Dr. Dobie’s approach to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Treatment incorporates:
– The use of nutritional supplements (sometimes given intravenously)
– Treatment of associated infections
– The management of associated allergies and sensitivities
– Hormone balancing
– Improved stress management.
Dr. Dobie often uses IV vitamin C in the treatment of CFS. After treating over 1000 patients with Chronic Fatigue, he has found that approximately 70% of CFS patients derive benefit from IV vitamin C. He usually adds magnesium, Vitamins B and glutathione to the infusions.
Boosting glutathione levels is very beneficial in the treatment of anyone suffering from fatigue. Glutathione is an important anti-oxidant; it also reduces inflammation, plays an important role in the removal of toxins, and is essential for production of ATP, the main energy molecule of the body.
Glutathione can be given intravenously, and glutathione levels can also be boosted by taking a supplement called Riboceine.
