Just wondering if anyone has used this and if it worked for them?

Just wondering if it helps with fibro and/or CFS.

I thought I never heard of it but when I looked it up I realized this is what a saw a news story on, some man takes it and turned himself blue and believes in it. I remember information from the story also saying it is potentially dangerous and completely unproven.

Yes, it turns you blue if you use too much of it. I was just hoping it might help with my fatigue at least.

My sister used to take it but she is an untreated schizo so I don't think I would put any stock in what she had to say. She really believed in it for a while.

Never heard of it...turns you blue?? Wow! That's the first time I have ever heard of that side effect too. May want to stay away from that. HUGS

I personally wouldn't use it but that's me. As for helping fatigue, CS does claim to cure everything from the flu to HIV. The claim is that CS kills 650 types of bacteria, and some claim it claims fungi, viruses, and parasites. However, it does NOT claim to boost energy.

Well, I was hoping. Sad

I know some people on here take ADHD meds for improved energy. Other than that I can only suggest exercising. I should say that you need to start out very slowly and work up from there. I know it sounds backwards, working for more energy but eventually it helps. Beyond that I have no suggestions. Maybe someone else can suggest something.

As much as I'd like to believe in a miracle cure, it sounds pretty hokey to me.
