Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Treatment Program: SSRP Protocol

Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Treatment Program: SSRP Protocol in Vienna, VA

Fibromyalgia is a medical disorder characterized by chronic widespread pain, sleep disturbance, joint stiffness and a heightened and painful response to pressure. Other symptoms of Fibromyalgia disease include debilitating fatigue (chronic fatigue syndrome) leading to the term Fibromyalgia and Fatigue. Fibromyalgia frequently coexists with psychiatric conditions such as depression, anxiety and stress-related disorders. Not all fibromyalgia patients experience all associated symptoms.

Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a complex and debilitating disorder characterized by extreme fatigue that doesn’t improve with rest and may worsen with physical or mental activity. The fatigue is often accompanied by a range of symptoms such as muscle pain, joint pain, headaches, difficulty concentrating, memory problems, sore throat, tender lymph nodes, and unrefreshing sleep.

Symptoms of Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

  • Chronic muscle pain, muscle spasms or tightness
  • Moderate or severe fatigue and decreased energy
  • Reduced tolerance for exercise and muscle pain after exercise
  • Insomnia or waking up feeling just as tired as when you went to sleep
  • Stiffness upon waking or after staying in one position for too long
  • Difficulty remembering, concentrating, and performing simple mental tasks
  • Tension or migraine headaches
  • Abdominal pain, bloating, nausea, and constipation diarrhea
  • Jaw and facial tenderness
  • Sensitivity to odors, noise, bright lights, medications, certain foods, and cold
  • Feeling anxious or depressed
  • Numbness or tingling in the face, arms, hands, legs, or feet
  • Increase in urinary urgency or frequency (irritable bladder)
  • A feeling of swelling (without actual swelling) in the hands and feet

If you’ve experiencing any of these symptoms, by this point, you might have consulted with a range of conventional specialists for Fibromyalgia treatment without much success. The prevailing approach in traditional treatments involves addressing specific symptoms and prescribing medications to alleviate the discomfort. However, this conventional viewpoint often falls short in addressing the underlying causes of the ailment, resulting in inadequate relief from symptoms. Consequently, patients find themselves grappling with persistent and chronic pain, overwhelming fatigue, and a compromised ability to carry out daily activities.

We approach things differently using a tailored integrative and functional medicine approach that combines the principles of Dr. Teitlebaum’s research.  While a definitive cure is not currently available, our methodology consistently results in profound symptom alleviation, restoration of overall well-being, reclamation of pre-disease energy levels, uninterrupted sleep, and the capacity for a return to normalcy. The once debilitating symptoms that initially presented are effectively addressed, fostering a significant improvement in their quality of life.

SSRP Protocol

The SSRP protocol is designed to accomplish the following objectives:

Stop

the progress of the disease and enhance the mitochondrial function

Stabilize

the patient to include balancing hormones and restoration of energy

Reverse

mitochondrial and other damage done by the disease processes

Prevent

further development of the disease processes

The SSRP protocol stands at the forefront of patient care, rooted in the groundbreaking research of Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum and fortified by robust support from peer-reviewed medical journals and clinical validations.

 

Characterized by its safety and comprehensive nature, the SSRP protocol incorporates IV Vitamin Therapy, precision-targeted nutritional supplementation, the judicious use of traditional medications when necessary, and compassionate care delivered by our adept team of physicians.

 

Operating within an integrative framework, we judiciously employ conventional medications, particularly in cases involving underlying co-infections or situations where traditional approaches offer the most effective treatment. Explore further to understand the intricacies of our SSRP approach, encapsulated within the four pillars of our methodology.

 

STOP progression of the disease

 

The first goal is to stop the progression of the disease. Many patients begin IV Vitamin Therapy immediately after commencing with the program. If time permits, we offer the first IV Treatment on the first day of program. Many patients report significant improvement after just one IV treatment. We will also introduce conventional medications at this point when indicated.

 

STABILIZE the patient

 

Stabilizing the patient is the process of assessing the response to early interventions, adding the appropriate oral nutritional supplementation to augment the IV Therapy and providing bioidentical hormone replacement to correct hormone dysfunction. In addition, we add other conventional medications as needed based on the results of our comprehensive lab panel to treat any identified infectious components. By the time we have introduced these components, patients typically experience significant improvement in sleep, meaningful reduction of chronic pain, reduced fatigue and increased energy.

 

REVERSE mitochondrial and other damage done by the disease processes

 

Not all damage can be reversed, but our treatment protocol has a high probability of reversing mitochondrial damage, enhancing mitochondrial function, and addressing and treating other unique etiologies such as neurotoxins and coagulation defects.

 

PREVENT further development of the disease processes

 

Our program relies on therapeutic dosages of key nutritional supplements such as D-Ribose, CO-Q10, Fish Oil and L-Carnitine as part of the program to prevent further development and escalation of the disease. Some patients may also require continuous periodic IV Therapy treatments and use of some conventional medications to maintain the benefits of the treatment. We periodically get updated lab results to verify that the patient is maintaining the benefits of the treatment, and we use these to determine if additional interventions are required.

 

Our compassionate providers enhance our program’s success. Acting as medical detectives, they tirelessly uncover patients’ symptoms’ root causes, ensuring safe, effective treatments. This investigative process persists throughout your engagement. Our providers offer vast experience, unwavering commitment, leading-edge diagnostics, and a pursuit of knowledge. On average, each physician spends 15 days annually in conferences, staying at the forefront of medical therapies. Our goal is to help you heal, live your best life and thrive.
