Celebrities Diagnosed With CFIDS/ME
Cher also has said publicly that she has CFS caused by chronic EBV. I know she goes to Germany for her treatments.


Celebrities who have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome are legendary film director Blake Edwards; musicians Randy Newman, Keith Jarrett and Dennis DeYoung; actors Morgan Fairchild, James Garner, Alana Stewart and Kathy Crosby; and philsopher Ken Wilbur. And of course, author Laura Hillenbrand and soccer player, Michelle Akers.

Didn't Leann Rimes battle chronic EBV or did she just have a bout of mono?

I thought I would pop this up because some of the homeopathic formulas that I swear have helped me so much, have all come from Germany. I'm thinking that this is why Cher goes to Germany for her EBV/CFS treatments and also why Farah Fawcett is being treated for cancer there as well.

Another medicine you can get in Germany (where I am based) that is generally not available in the US is Isoprinosine. This is an antiviral that is specially designed to treat Epstein-Barr. I took it for a few months and it managed to get my levels back to normal. It's otherwise known as Immunovir and, if I remember rightly, the active ingredient is inosine pranobex.
