In ME & CFS in the 21st Century – Part 1 published previously, we saw the first excerpts of an interview with Alex Howard, founder and CEO of the Optimum Health Clinic. The Optimum Health Clinic is an award winning integrative health clinic specialising in M.E./C.F.S./Fibromyalgia, set up in 2004 by Alex Howard. The clinic is internationally recognised for its innovative approach of systematically researching and testing all available approaches, and integrating them together in the most effective way. With over half the clinic team having themselves had personal experience of M.E./C.F.S./Fibromyalgia, the clinic is also well known for its caring and empathic approach. We now look at the second part of Alex’s interview with Conscious TV as he continues to discuss the issues surrounding M.E. & Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (C.F.S.). Alex Howard continues the interview by talking about how the body can react to certain environmental and other factors when suffering with M.E. and C.F.S.
Alex then goes on to discuss how delayed fatigue is felt when the body does not recycle biochemical products like ATP efficiently and how people struggle within a stress state when their bodies need to heal and repair. Alex talks about his personal experience of overcoming chronic fatigue and how he built his own picture of recovery due to his desperation to get better. Reassuringly, there is a lot more practical information and new discoveries are available from places like the Optimum Health Clinic and other clinics in the world. Alex emphasises that sufferers are treated by protocols focused on the individual.
The interview then covers how sufferers can move forward with treatment by being responsible for their health and seeking out practitioners who are experienced in M.E. and C.F.S. In addition, Alex talks about how the internet can give access to inspirational stories of people who have overcome M.E. and C.F.S. Alex finally talks about the main pre-cursors of getting M.E. and Chronic Fatigue – his model is based on burnout. The body suffers from one too many stressors and chronic fatigue is experienced. The answer is to change perspective, live a sustainable life and see fatigue as a positive experience that sufferers can learn and develop from.
