There are a myriad of causes that lead to the development of fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue. These may vary from presence of an undiagnosed or diagnosed illness, aggressive conventional treatment, prolonged use of medications, long term work and/or other forms of overload, deficiencies in organs/glands functioning, toxic exposures or psycho-emotional causes. When treating the above conditions, Dr. Kodet starts by identifying potential causes and deficiencies in the patient’s organs, glands, lifestyle and environment, and addresses them accordingly in his treatment plan. He treats the whole person considering not only specific aspects of their medical condition but also their social situation and other so called non-medical factors.
Dr. Kodet has been treating patients suffering with various levels of severity of chronic fatigue or fibromyalgia, from bed-ridden to relatively high functioning. In general, the more severe and the more disabling the condition the more gentle and cautious approach needs to be provided during the initial stages of recovery. As the patient continues to improve, a more assertive approach can be used. In any case, severe disabling cases need to expect a longer term recovery. Fortunately, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. As patients continue to improve, their lives become progressively easier and more fulfilling.
“When our son Brandon was two years old, he was diagnosed with idiopathic acute recurrent pancreatitis. Brandon suffered five server attacks all within one year requiring hospitalization, morphine, antibiotics and TPN (total parental nutrition) by IV. During the first attack, we almost lost him.
This really took a great physical toll on him, but as a parent, you cannot accept that you are unable to help your child. We needed a light at the end of the tunnel and once we met and began working with Dr. Kodet, we knew that was exactly what we had found.
Dr. Kodet is not only extremely knowledgeable, but is also very caring and has the ability to explain the intricate workings of the body to the layman. Thus a turning point began and even within the first week following Dr. Kodet’s dietary recommendations, we noticed a marked improvement in Brandon’s energy.
We will always be grateful to have met Dr. Kodet and quite honestly feel he very well may have saved Brandon.”
