About meI am recovering from CFS as a result of chemotherapy treatments I received when I was 14. I have done copious amounts of research, scoured scholarly journals like PLos and pubmed, watched numerous lectures, and been to many doctors. I am taking charge of my health and am doing whatever it takes to reclaim vitality and youth that was taken from me when I was diagnosed with cancer. I hope to then take the knowledge that I have learned in dealing with this illness and become a doctor myself so that I can heal others and research these syndromes further and fill in some of the missing puzzle pieces so as to optimize treatment for patients in the future. I am currently an Anthropology major but will be embarking on my first round of premedical courses this coming semester. Fingers crossed!
Current health issues6 year cancer survivor, CFS, Hashimoto's thryoiditis, possible MCS and mercury poisoning, though the tests have not been definitive. I also am fighting off a nasty case of candida and leaky gut syndrome. I take high doses of probiotics, eat a diet low in sugar, and eat a lot of raw fermented veggies, as well as taking Nystatin daily.

...try to help others as much as possible. I wish you all the best and hope you find something of help or interest here at EiR!
Hi there..what a story!! You have already come so far I have no doubt you will achieve your admirable goal of becoming a doctor to help others who have suffered as you (and I) have. I was diagnosed with CFS on my 12th birthday (and other issues e.g. MCS subsequently) so lost my entire youth and chance at a normal life. I have run this site and gained a Bachelor's degree in Nutritional Medicine to
