In health care since 1977, but keenly aware of Western medicine's shortcomings, Rose Mary began exploring natural health in the late 1990s.
Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum specializes in the treatment of Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia. I discovered Dr. Teitelbaum through my thyroid guru, Mary Shoman. She included Dr. Teitelbaum’s website, End Fatigue, in her book, Living Well With Hypothyroidism. I purchased his Energy Revitalization System due to fatigue and Vitamin B deficiency related to hypothyroidism, and found it to be very helpful.
About Dr. Jacob Teitlbaum
Dr. Teitelbaum is an internal medicine physician who developed Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia while in medical school in the mid-70s. He had to drop out of medical school for a year to recover. In his journey to regain his health and vitality, he discovered treatments that were unknown to the Western Medicine community. Helping others with chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and chronic pain became his passion.
Dr. Teitelbaum is the Medical Director of the Fibromyalgia and Fatigue Centers, Inc. He is the author of From Fatigued to Fantastic!, Three Steps to Happiness: Healing Through Joy, Pain Free 1-2-3: A Proven Program for Eliminating Chronic Pain Now, and Beat Sugar Addiction Now! . He and colleagues were published in the Journal of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome in 2001 for their “gold standard” work for the treatment of Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia.

D-Ribose Benefits Muscle Health
His study on the effects of D-ribose, a 5-carbon sugar, on fibromyalgia patients is published in the Journal of Alternative and Complimentary Medicine. Two thirds of study participants demonstrated improvement after 12 days, reporting an average increase in energy of 45 percent. Corvalen, a D-ribose product by Bioenergy Life Science, Inc., is intended to improve the metabolic health of muscles, including the heart. Corvalen is formulated to provide nutritional support to benefit people with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, and cardiovascular disease.

The letters stand for sleep, hormones, immunity/infections, nutrition, and exercise. The website also provides information on how to find a trained practitioner and support group.

End Fatigue Products
Dr. Teitelbaum’s website features his formulations, as well as other supplements that promote health and well-being. I have tried several of his formulations—Energy Revitalization System, Adrenal Stress End, and Revitalizing Sleep Formula. I have also used many of the supplements he offers, at the recommendation of my naturopath, such as alpha lipoic acid, CoQ 10, Vitamin D, and colloidal silver.

Talk to Your Health Care Provider
This is not the kind of thing you should pursue on your own!! Any supplements such as Fatigued to Fantastic Energy Revitalization System, and Dr.Teitelbaum's other products should be supervised by a health care provider, whether that person be an MD, or an alternative health provider, such as a naturopath.

Hopping some hubs and come across this one.
Thanks rmcrayne for writing an informative hub article.
At least Dr. Teitelbaum 'gives a damn' about Fibromyalgia and the like as there are still plenty of medical practitioners that do not and I have been searching for answers for close to 20 years!

Paradise sounds like a page from my book. Even things I LOVE, I don't love in the mornings.
Paradise7 from Upstate New York on March 26, 2010:
Very interesting. Often I feel demotivated in the mornings and don't really get going until afternoon, unless there's a particular obligation on my plate. Some of the advice here may help that. Thank you.
rmcrayne (author) from San Antonio Texas on March 25, 2010:
THanks Mekenzie. I've done the Revitalization System twice.
