The New York Times and a story on disabling chronic fatigue


People with persistent and disabling fatigue continue to live severely diminished lives, decades after decades. The writers of The New York Times, supposedly watch dogs, continue to promote drugs for it and in my terminology become lap dogs. Please read this article completely to see if I am being unethical in my comments.

Disabling Fatigue Circa 1994

In my book The Canary and Chronic Fatigue (1994), I recognized the central roles of gut fermentation and mold allergy in the cause and persistence of disabling chronic fatigue. For effective treatment, I discussed the important subject of altered states of bowel ecology at length and offered my guidelines for my Seed, Feed, and Weed Approach for restoring the bowel flora.

Disabling Fatigue Circa 2015

Following is an excerpt form an article published in The New York Times on Feb. 25, 2015. “In my case, I have improved almost unbelievably by taking extreme steps to avoid mold, an approach that has become an underground movement among patients but that has received very little study.”

I am happy for the writer’s discovery by personal experience that avoid mold toxins improved her health “almost unbelievably .” I would have been happier if she had stopped there. But she did not.

Chemotherapy for Curing Chronic Fatigue

The Times’s writer went on to sing the virtues of a chemotherapy drug for curing chronic fatigue. Consider the following text from the article: “That may be about to change. Rituximab, a lymphoma drug, has produced remarkable remissions in C.F.S. patients in a small study and is now undergoing a large trial.”

Not a Watchdog But a lapdog Jane

Singing the praises of chemotherapy for chronic fatigue makes the writer not a watchdog journalist but a lapdog Jane. She does not understand something that people who suffer from chronic disabling fatigue find out the hard way: fatigue caused by chemicals cannot be cured by taking more toxic chemicals. The Times writer could have read my book, spoken to my patients who got better, and reviewed their records (with their permission). If she had done that, she would have acted as a watchdog journalists.

No, regardless of the short-term benefits of the chemotherapy drug, this drug will fail just as other drugs have failed. I know this prediction will prove right as my other predictions in this matter have in the past. The problems caused by overgrowth of fermenting flora in the bowel, gut fermentation, and resulting mitochondrial failure in ATP energy generation cannot be cured by chemotherapy. It is that simple.

  • Dear Dr. Ali,

    Years ago, your book, The Canary and Chronic Fatigue, saved my life, and gave me back a life.

    Every so often, late at night I have some fibromyalgia pain in my legs–usually in my case a warning sign that I have been sloppy with my supplement program, and I think, “Thank God for Dr. Ali, because of him, I know what to do about this, otherwise it would be unbearable.” And I read about the establishment doing Dark Ages treatments like drilling holes in people’s skulls for fibromyalgia…

    Chemotherapy for chronic fatigue syndrome?!!! Chemotherapy often causes chronic fatigue syndrome!!! Since any chemical exposure that breaks down oxygen metabolism can cause chronic fatigue syndrome, if there ever was a bad idea, this is a terrible one!

    You were the first person out there to define exactly what causes chronic fatigue syndrome–I can swear to it, as I as desperately searching, reading all comers at the time, in order to try to save myself.

    Why should you even question your ethics?!! Anyone with an ounce of common sense could see that you are right about what causes chronic fatigue syndrome.

    The problem is that where there are no drugs, there are no dollars.

    Sincerely,

    Your grateful patient,

    Patricia Pepper
