Report by Vinod Kumar
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is a poorly understood condition primarily characterized by debilitating, persistent or recurrent fatigue, increased physical and mental fatigability, cognitive impairment and widespread musculoskeletal pain – due to which in some quarters it’s known as Fibromyalgia, and by some as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME).
INCIDENCE: We may not have any statistics available in our country, but The US National Health Interview Survey population of persons ≥18 years of age in 2012 reported 1.75% of population or 3.94 million people to be suffering from fibromyalgia. This illness is catching on to be an epidemic, most probably as another life-style disorder adding to growing basket of morbidity all over the world
INTRODUCTION: It’s considered to be an acquired illness that affects all the body systems; predominantly the neurological, psychological, endocrine, musculoskeletal, and immune systems. During the past two decades, there have been heated debates about CFS among researchers, practitioners and patients about its underlying pathophysiology and effective treatment such as antidepressants, stimulants or antibiotics, etc. A lot of multidisciplinary literature is found about CFS. But, a majority of patients continue to suffer indefinitely from its unabated morbidity, generally even without any symptomatic relief from hit and try medications.
This article is an honest effort towards raising awareness about the drug-free, efficient and reproducible model of health that has repeated success in each of the patients coming from different nations and continents leading to total elimination of their suffering and restoration of positive health and total wellness ‘Body, Mind & Spirit’. Their individual experiences are reproduced below in their own words for authenticity.
This therapy is based on optimum synergy of the ‘science’ of modern with the ‘art’ of various drug-free and thus harmless modalities of recognised alternate (CAM) systems of medicine, termed Holistic Medicine. It restores ‘Health in All’ without using any medication.
It may be taken as a clarion call by the main stream medical profession, researchers and health authorities to explore its efficacy through large scale trials to develop scientific protocols for the benefit of the humanity at large.

SONAM SARIN, states, “After several years of wandering from Dr. to Dr. in several hospitals in the U.S. to find relief from debilitating body aches & stiffness, loss of libido, dizziness, depression and Chronic Fatigue, which had taken the smile out from my life, I came down to India in search of remedy to my problems. To my amazement, and also to the relief of my family, I started to show signs of ENERGY & ENJOYMENT almost instantly. Smile has, once again, returned to my gloomy face and as I feel fully assured, I am now returning home with all the vitality and happiness to pursue goals of my life. In the meantime I have found a ‘GURU’ in Dr. Ravi Tuli, who has infused me with health, youth, happiness, and taught me how to live a qualitative life!”

YATHARTH VERMA, shares, “My woes started in the summer of 1999, when an unexplained Muscle Myalgia gripped me following an episode of Viral Flu. It gradually developed into a full fledged Chronic Fatigue Syndrome comprising constant debilitating Pain & Stiffness in my whole body. I suffered from Migraines, Sleep Disturbances, Fogginess in my brain: total Lack of Focus, Severe Vertigo & Tinnitus, Blurred Vision, multiple Food Allergies-Irritable Bowel, Kidney Stones and Hyperlipedemia; topped by recurrent Idiopathic Pneumothorax – each time rushing me to hospital in emergency. No medical tests were of any use; many medications were prescribed; I tried life-style changes, my food / eating habits, etc. But, everything fell flat with not even an iota of relief.” I was told about a friend’s friend who had been fully cured of similar ailment by Dr. R. K. Tuli at New Delhi. No time was wasted, as the Doctor after assessing my condition first explained to me the nuances of Holistic Medicine therapy. I found his explanation to be very logical and I accepted the treatment schedule prescribed by him with full faith. And, here I am penning down my HONEST TESTIMONY after just 3 months of starting the treatment. All of my symptoms mentioned above are no longer there, and I feel good like I’ve not felt in the last 13 years. I am no longer on any medication. I sleep well and I think much clearly. I feel full of love which can now be transferred to my wife and my son. My wife and friends tell me that I’ve regained the aggression I was known for. My Body & Mind have undergone such changes that I have started enjoying life, again, after almost 13 years. To me Dr. Tuli is a SAVIOUR!!”

This is what I learnt from Dr. Tuli as he treated me of tremendous weakness, sickness, body stiffness, loss of all vitality, mental fatigue, and a state of perpetual dizziness.

WILF SWEETLAND, “As a professional sportsman it was terrible to suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome comprising symptoms of perpetual tiredness, lack of focus, poor mental acuity, loss of libido, chondromalacia patellae, body stiffness, backache even on mild exertion, indigestion, flatulence-IBS. All the medications prescribed by doctors in Australia and USA proved futile. I arrived at the “SOHAM” Clinic on my father’s counsel. Although hesitant in the beginning, now at the end of prescribed course of therapy I can say that this holistic therapy has helped to restore my health & vitality considerably – so, too the words Dr. Tuli has spoken to me! I’ve gained an awareness I did not have before, an awareness of my self, of my environment, and the energy that surrounds us all. Through this period of time here I have commenced my journey into the ‘tapping’ of this infinite energy. I am on my way to where I wish to be going. Thanks Dr. Tuli!

SAHIBA SANDHU certifies, “I came to Dr. Tuli about 4 years ago when I had been suffering from Severe Chronic Fatigue, Acute Fibromyalgia, Depression, Anxiety, Insomnia, Blurred Mind, Migraine, etc. It had, also, disturbed my hormonal system to cause PCOD-Amenorrhea-Infertility. Despite trying various allopathic and natural cures at best of the recommendations for over 10 years in both India & the U.S., my condition only got from bad to worse. But, once under Dr. Tuli’s care I’ve found significant relief in all of my issues. From being bed ridden with intolerable drug-resistant pain, I’m now a qualified Yoga teacher, do my aerobics as well as go jogging regularly. The quality of my health (Body-Mind-Spirit) has improved from 1/10 to 8-9/10. Also, I didn’t find any answer in western medicine for my PCOD which has been concurrently cured and I’m the mother of a healthy baby now.”
SECRET BEHIND SUCCESS:
Dr. R. K. Tuli, who is a globally established pioneer of Holistic Medicine therapy, explains that the secret behind unique success of this latest speciality of medicine in being able to so easily and successfully cure each of the patients suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome / Fibromyalgia and series of other conventionally incurable disorders is always due to complementing the evidence based ‘science’ of modern medicine with the ‘art’ of time honoured Vedic wisdom of traditional (Indian & Chinese) systems of health.
This wisdom explains the human being as a microcosm of the universal macrocosm. It’s not merely a physical body or its parts as treated by various specialists in allopathic medicine, but a ‘body-mind-spirit’ complex that draws vital life with its functions of reproduction, replication, respiration, digestion, assimilation and excretion from the universal omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient divine energy imparting life to each living entity. It’s natural to it to impart psychosomatic harmony and invisible immunity to human individual. Any disturbance in this harmony over a prolonged period manifests as a sickness. No external agents or drugs can help restore this natural harmony. But, simple restoration of this harmony through initiating natural ‘life-style’ helps to regulate and restore normal health.
The various drug-free modalities of the so-called alternate systems of medicine (CAM) comprising therapeutic yoga, panchakarma, various modalities of acupuncture, counselling-hypnotherapy, regular exercise and healthy nutrition as an all inclusive therapy help to initiate healing and restore positive health and total wellness. It’s usually useful in all diseases in improving the outcome of every sickness, enhancing the very scope of modern medicine. Thus, its optimum utilization by qualified doctors shall go a long way in mitigating sufferings of people, and restore the old glory of medical profession!.
