In the many years that I have been treating clients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS); otherwise known as post-viral fatigue/syndrome, adrenal fatigue, and more; I’ve reserached and trialled many remedies for treatment and prevention of these/this chronic ailment, including many herbal and supplemental remedies.
Undoubtedly the best or most successful herbal treatment I’ve found, and one that I still use to this date, is combining a couple of fantastic pure extract herbs from Siberia, which I came across via the Russian reserach biochemist & doctor who treated me in my recovery from CFS or post-viral fatigue/syndrome, and mentored me as a practitioner.
The same principles apply in use of these herbs for long CoVid as they do for any other post-viral fatigue I’ve treated, including post glandular fever (Epstein-Barr virus), post Ross River fever, chronic sinusitis, post flu etc etc.
Extensive Russian reserach on the first of these herbs has shown that is a fantastic anitmicrabial/antiviral herb as well as having immunostimulant, and potent liver rejuvenative and protective properties In a virus, the liver is put under huge load in order to detoxify and eliminate the viral load, so it is fantastic for helping to clear the viral load in the body, and to help rejuvenate the liver and immune system for the long term.
The other is a adatogenic herb which helps the body adapt to stress (the virus putting the body under huge stress) by supporting the adrenal glands, as well as stimulating the immune system, and building energy levels, endurance and stamina.
Here’s some brief information on each herb:
Conifer Green Needle Complex (CGNC) is extracted from green conifer needles, which was the first product of the Bioeffective family to be developed in the Russian science of forest biochemistry by Professors Solodsky and Agranat in the 1930’s and 1940’s. Initially (and still presently) in Russia it was used both topically for burns, wounds and frostbite, and to accelerate skin regeneration following surgery; and internally as a source of nutrition, vitamins and for the prevention and treatment of colds, flu’s and other infections. It saved many lives during the 900 day Siege of Leningrad (St. Petersburg) in World War II when the German army surrounded and lay siege to the entire town. It was used as a nutritional enhancement or supplement in the bread (made from sawdust and a cellulose extract) and water that provided the staple diet that the starving population of Leningrad was forced to live on.
After the war successful trials led to Bioeffective A being embraced in Russia as a wide spectrum natural anti-microbial and anti-fungal preparation. Some 70 or more years and 3.5 million PhD hours of research later, CGNC has now been made available in the rest of the world.
This research has shown that CGNC has the following properties:
- wide spectrum anti-microbial
- liver protective and regenerative
- haematogenic (blood building)
- tissue regenerative
Internally, CGNC is indicated for:
- prevention and treatment of many disorders including infectious diseases such as colds, influenza and other acute respiratory viral infections
- detoxification processes
- drug and alcohol rehabilitation of liver diseases such as cirrhosis, hepatitis etc.
- preventing or inhibiting the progression of atherosclerosis
- reducing the risk of oncological disorders
- treating toxic damage to bone marrow
- as an adjuvant in treatment of chronic diseases of the lungs and GI tract (such as atopic gastritis, stomach ulcers, H.pylori infection, IBS etc.)
The second herb is an extract from the needles of Siberian fir (Abies sibirica) trees.
Fascinated with the incredible adaptive ability of Siberian fir and pine trees to endure the extremes of conditions in Siberia (temperatures ranging from -55 to +40 degrees celcius, and extended periods of 24 hour daily darkness), yet still thrive, remain disease free and maintain their green colour all year round Siberian scientists developed an extract of the biologically active extracts from the ‘live elements’ of these trees. The needles of these trees, the ‘live elements,’ have the ability to remain green and transform the energy of the sun into air and chlorophyll even in light deficient conditions.
These extracts are utilized readily because analogous compounds already exist in the human body. For example, chlorophyll has a structure similar to that of haemoglobin in the human blood (which transports oxygen to the tissues).
As a result, the Russian scientists were looking to mimic the incredible adaptive and enduring properties of Siberian pine and fir trees in the human body.
Their research on extracts from the needles of Siberian fir (Abies sibirica) trees have unearthed several astounding properties:
- Potent antioxidant activity (ORAC values for batches tested to date are around 350,000 umol/L as Vit E equivalents)
- Adaptogencic – trials indicating that they enhance functioning of the immune system
- Ability to increase physical endurance and stamina (reduce fatigue)
- Immune system stimulant – prevention of colds and flus
- Helpful with fatigue and anaemia.
I use other techniques in addition to these herbs, however they definitely form an integral part of my treatment strategy, and have seen lots of fantastic recoveries using this approach.
These herbs are practitioner herbs, which I carry stock of. If you are suffering from long-Covid or porst-viral fatigue/syndrome, and are struggling to get over it, then contact me for a potential solution that is not well known, but highly effective.
The dosages we use are different to those for general use, as we are targetting outcomes for a specific chronic condition.
