What do Chronic Fatigue Syndrome & Fibromyalgia have in common?

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome & Fibromyalgia
By Gene Bruno, MS, MHS – Dean of Academics, Huntington College of Health Sciences

Many doctors and researchers are convinced that Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) are simply different manifestations of the same underlying disorder. In fact, many patients suffer from both conditions. While both have been acknowledged as real physical diseases, neither one has a known cause or cure. Is the lack of a cure all that the two illnesses have in common? Not by a long shot. When looking at what is known about Fibromyalgia and CFS, they appear to be more alike than they are different.

Health Benefits of B Vitamins

By Art Presser, PharmD - President, Huntington College of Health Sciences

There are eleven B vitamins that are collectively called the B-Complex. The eleven vitamins include B-1, B-2 and B-6, which should be supplemented in equal strengths, as should choline and Inositol. That makes five. Rounding out the balance of the eleven are B-3, B-5, B-12, folic acid, biotin and PABA.

B Complex

B-Complex is referred to as the energy vitamins and stress fighters. They get this reputation because they are intimately involved in cellular energy metabolism, namely the glycolytic, Krebs cycle and pentose pathways. The B vitamins act as cofactors in converting carbohydrates into glucose which the body burns to produce energy.

Effective Carpal Tunnel Treatment


Carpal Tunel: Effective Treatment
Ronald Grisanti D.C., D.A.B.C.O., D.A.C.B.N., M.S.


Just recently I had the opportunity to consult with a patient by the name of Andrea who was suffering with carpal tunnel syndrome.

Andrea was a 47 year women who was employed as an executive secretary for a Fortune 500 company.  Her job responsibilities included typing business documents, scheduling telephone meetings and pretty much everything that is associated with this type of position.

Andrea mentioned during our first consult that the tingling and numbness in her fingers and hand, especially her thumb and index, middle and ring fingers was getting so bad that she was afraid she might lose her job. The condition was at a point that she consistently needed to “shake out” her hands after 15 minutes of typing on the computer.

Creating Your Own Vitamin Protocol

Vitamin Program

Basic Foundation Program

By Art Presser, PharmD & Gene Bruno, MS, MHS – Huntington College of Health Sciences

Everyday our bodies make cancer. Everyday our bodies have high blood pressure. Everyday our bodies are challenged by an amazing amount of toxins. That’s the bad news. The good news is that every day our bodies make anticancer, antihypertenive, and poison neutralizing drugs. Our bodies are a living pharmacy.

Nutrient shortages

What do you think our bodies manufacture life- sustaining drugs out of? They manufacturer these natural marvels out of the ingredients stocked on their shelves; ingredients that are replenished daily from the foods taken in and processed. Each vitamin, mineral and other nutrients have a place on the shelf.

Supplement of the week: Designs for Health Lipoic Acid Supreme

LAS060 lrg

Quick overview

This very powerful supplement contains 300 mg of lipoic acid, along with 4 mg of pure biotin and 500 mg of taurine. Research shows that lipoic acid competes for biotin-dependent enzymes. Long term supplementation of lipoic acid may reduce biotin levels, so it is recommended to supply them together. Taurine and biotin play important roles in maintaining healthy insulin function.*

AIpha Lipoic Acid (ALA), also known as thioctic acid, has gained considerable attention as an antioxidant. ALA combats particularly nasty free radicals such as superoxide radicals, hydroxyl radicals, hypochlorous acid, peroxyl radicals, and singlet oxygen, thereby reducing oxidative stress. ALA is a small molecule, soluble in both water and fat. This allows it to work both inside the cell and at the membrane level, making ALA a particularly valuable antioxidant.

Supplement of the Week: Designs for Health DIM-Avail

DIM120 lrg

Quick Overview

Due to its crystalline structure, absorption of DIM is minimal when given orally (similar to CoQ10). DIM absorption can be greatly enhanced by emulsifying it with lecithin in rice bran oil, including with it compounds that hold it in solution such as beeswax, and finally adding fat-soluble nutrients that aid absorption through the gut wall. DIM-Avail™, which gets its name from its high bioavalability, is a unique combination of such ingredients. 

Research tells us that a low level of the 2-hydroxyestrone and a high level of 16 alpha-hydroxyestrone are not desired. DIM works by helping to increase 2-hydroxyestrone and therefore improves the 2/16 hydroxyestrone ratio.*
