CFS: Wheldon Protocol and Marshall Protocol....polar opposites?
I started the Wheldon Protocol last week...and am thrilled to have found out about it, to have found this site, and to have a doctor who let me try the protocol.
My question relates to the nutritional and supplement schedules and tips. If I've read things correctly, there is a big emphasis on things like Vitamin D, Fish and Flax oils, Vitamin B complex, and seafood (among other things....and my list above is not meant to suggest that the protocol only recommends these food / supplement items).
Then I came across the Marshall Protocol....and it basically (exaggerating here for dramatic effect) says that all of the above are grown by the devil and that consuming any of them (or even going outdoors for that matter) will not only prevent relief of fatigue and other CFS symptom, but will aggravate them and is even the cause of the symptoms (hence a primary cause of CFS).
I'm not one to panic....but emabarking on either protocol seems to be an "all or nothing" bet if one compares the two protocols.....to the extent that if you choose one....and you're wrong.....you will not only do no good, but you will basically advance the symptoms and the underlying CFS.
Can you help with any information regarding these concerns? Anything from science, to theory, to wild guesses, to personal anecdotes from people who have done both protocols (is there anyone who has?).....would be greatly appreciated.
And just to clarify....I'm "still" on Wheldon (one week in!) and am committed to staying the course with it.
