Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E)/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) - The Gupta Program

Discover How The Gupta Program Can Support Your Recovery From Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E)/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)

It's Not In Your Head. You Are Experiencing Real Physical Symptoms From A Real Physical Condition.

Take A Sneak Peek Inside The Gupta Program

What is ME/CFS?

ME/CFS is defined as:

A chronic tiredness for over 6 months that is not related to extended physical work or any other medical conditions that can cause fatigue.

The tiredness affects normal day to day activities considerably.

Having four of the eight conditions below, simultaneously:

post exertion malaise, lasting over 24 hours
waking up, feeling unrefreshed
weakened short-term memory or concentration
muscular pain
a regular sore throat
joint pain without swelling or redness
continual headaches
tender lymph nodes in the armpit or neck

What Causes ME/CFS?

There are so many different abnormalities in ME/CFS, which seem to point to the idea of a central abnormality which affects all systems in the body. I believe that the condition is caused by an abnormality in the brain, specifically around two brain structures, the “Amygdala” and the “Insula”.

insula amygdala
vicious-cycle

 

The Amygdala is the part of our brain that is responsible for the “fight or flight” response, or the stress response. It is also known as the response of the sympathetic nervous system to threats.

 

From our published research which you can view below, it seems that this part of the brain gets stuck in a chronic state of hyper-arousal, quickly using up all the body’s store of energy.  It also causes lots of secondary issues which contribute to a whole host of symptoms in the body such as brain fog, difficulty concentrating, muscle pain, and exhaustion.

This hypothesis serves as a potential unifying model for the various observations in patients.

Common Mechanisms That Cause Chronic Conditions

Muscular Fatigue & Pain, Aching Joints & Tender Points

The stress response is sometimes known as the “fight, flight or freeze” response. These responses, including excessive adrenaline, keep the muscles tense, and are only designed to be triggered for minutes at a time. This eventually causes downgrading of the system and inability to do simple tasks.

Relaxed muscles are in a state called tone, which is a state balanced between relaxation and contraction. Prolonged tension in muscles upsets tone and allows the chemicals of fatigue (e.g., lactic acid) to temporarily accumulate and disperse, causing aches and pain. Prolonged tension is initiated and maintained by the stress response, as the muscles are primed for reaction to dangerous stimuli. This is why you may suffer from aching limbs that seem to feel heavy and drag, but there may be nothing actually physically wrong with the muscles.

Excessive stimulation of the immune system can cause inflammation throughout the body as well as neuro-inflammation, further contributing to symptoms. 

A few patients have found that magnesium supplements tend to help muscle tension. This is because magnesium acts as a muscle relaxant, and can be found in green leafy vegetables as well.

Immune System Symptoms, e.g., Sore Throat, Swollen Glands

The immune system is always in a state of delicate balance, ready to respond appropriately to a threat. However, if the perception of that threat is overstated, there may be some aspects of a reactivated immune response that is constantly on alert.

I will not go into the neurobiology of this mechanism here (it is commented upon in the medical paper). Suffice to say that, given that the original trauma often occurs in the presence of a severe virus/bacterial infection, it is no mystery that the body will retrigger immune defenses as a way of making sure the body survives, even if no viral threat exists. This can often feel like having flu or a slight fever, as well as swollen glands and a sore throat, and may be the effects of chemicals called cytokines, causing inflammation in the body and neuroinflammation in the brain. This conditioning is likely to be stored in the insula, and retraining targets the insula in persuading it that no further threats are present.

In some patients, this may result in a susceptibility to viral infections, and many of my patients report this. Others, however, may find that they do not have any more viruses than normal.

Exhaustion from Sleep Problems

Several studies have shown that insomniacs cannot get to sleep mainly because they are worrying about something, even if they are very tired. Studies also show that the amygdala is partly responsible for keeping people awake at night due to unconscious stress. ME/CFS/FMS patients have the same problem: Their minds are constantly being bombarded by thoughts telling them that there is an ever present danger that is unresolved, and so they find it difficult to get to or stay asleep.

When a mind and body is tense, sleep is interrupted and fragmented during the night. Studies have shown that interrupted sleep causes further aches and fatigue the next day. Overall, a prolonged stress response causing an interrupted sleep has adverse reactions on the body clock, and indeed some studies have shown a mismatch between temperature rhythms and melatonin secretion in patients. The mismatches in patients have been shown to be very similar to those suffering from stress and sleep deprivation, as well as PTSD.

Furthermore, it is the hypothalamus that regulates sleep rhythms, and it is precisely this brain structure which is being bombarded by signals from the amygdala.

I Felt Like My Life Was Over...

Now I remember in one of my darkest moments, thinking “This is it! My life’s over!” I was experiencing ME or CFS at university after a severe stomach bug.

And it was supposed to be a time to be in the prime of my life, and yet I had hit a brick wall. I did some research but all I read was negativity – “Oh, there’s no cure, you are going to have this for the rest of your life!”

I was so ill that sometimes I had to crawl to the bathroom. I had so much of life ahead of me, but at that moment I couldn’t see any light at the end of the tunnel. I felt my life was over. I just wanted to cry out, “Why can’t someone just fix this for me?!” I really had hit rock bottom.

After a lot of research and perseverance, I learned more about the brain neurology of the illness, and over time I managed to fully recover 100%. I then realized that I really wanted to help others with the condition. So, I published several medical papers, and then set up a clinic to treat others with the condition. It was incredibly rewarding.

 

For the first time in my life, I felt truly alive. Out of my suffering came an opportunity to help others for which I am truly grateful.

You Deserve Health

Many before you have taken this path to health, and so can you.

Some professionals and doctors might tell you that you cannot recover. This can make us feel dejected, pessimistic. Sometimes we can feel angry because some doctors just seem to dismiss what we are saying.

Now luckily not all doctors are like this. When I was unwell, some doctors even thought I was just making it all up in my head. But of course, we all know this is a real physical condition.

I believe that we all have the capacity to heal ourselves from this condition. And this is my inspiration to you today. That however bad the condition feels, however isolating it may be, however down you might feel, you can recover from this condition and get your life back.

Pavle's Success Story

Pavle Luger

Dear Ashok Gupta

Your method is really groundbreaking, it’s an innovative approach to dealing with CFS that truly empowered a desperate individual with CFS like I was. Thanks to your Amygdala retraining program I have come to realize the fact that I have been dealing with ADHD and Social anxiety for many, many years, even decades. After 15 years with CFS, I have finally achieved to heal and balance my everyday energy. In that line of thought, I have to be truly and deeply thankful to have developed the CFS which in turn had led me to Ashok’s Healing Program.

...

I highly recommend Ashok Gupta’s Amygdala Retraining Program to anyone who is struggling with CFS, Fibromyalgia or a low energy phase because it definitely tackles those subconscious and unconscious issues and thoughts that keep us in the negative and overactive loop, draining us without relief.

...

One important point is to be self-aware and learn to forgive and be gentler on oneself, thereby enabling that inner child to flourish…

...

Again in deepest gratitude. 

What Are the Chances I Can Recover?

It Can Be Hard To Know Where To Turn

woman-working-at-computer-home-office

 It can be hard to know what path to take when you’ve been diagnosed with this condition. I also went from doctor to doctor trying to get an explanation. And some of the patient forums can be very negative about recovery. I think this is just because they can be skewed towards people who haven’t managed to get better yet.

You Can Reclaim Your Life Back

But the good news is that in fact, many people do recover, they do get better and I truly believe that you can get better too.

Healing is your birthright....to have a healthy and happy mind and body!

Andrea Wady

Hi. My name is Andrea Wady and I’m just letting you know about the success I had with the Gupta Amygdala Retraining Program. In fact, I’ve just completed a coast to coast trek across Costa Rica. Never in my wildest dreams four years ago would I have ever thought that possible. I had moderate M.E and I had had it for four years. And I was not able to work. I work with horses so I felt like my life had completely fallen apart. I’d been given about a 5% chance of recovery but I never gave up hope and I think that was partly key, was that I always believed that I would get better.

...

Even in the darkest of days, I was determined to get better. I looked at nutrition, I looked at pacing myself, I looked at every possible way of recovering from M.E.And all of them helped but they only got me to about 40% I would say. And then my mother in law saw a tiny snippet in the Daily Telegraph newspaper in England. And she said, “You should try this.” And it was a testimonial for Ashok Gupta and I thought, “Well I can get my money back so I’m gonna give it a try.”

...

But I’ll be honest, I was a little sceptical. Well, within three weeks I noticed a difference. It makes me quite emotional because even though I always believed I’d get better, that’s just my spirit. At the time when you’re sitting in that hole, it can be a very lonely place to sit. So, seeing like a 5% improvement in three weeks, four weeks was amazing to me. And I’ll be honest, it wasn’t easy. There were times when I thought, “If I have to say, ‘stop, stop, stop’ one more time, I’m gonna run screaming from the building.” But running screaming from the building wasn’t an option for me so I had to keep going. So I trust the program and I kept going and I kept going, and within six weeks I was substantially better.

...

And I would say I practised the program on and off for two years. Because recovery isn’t completely linear and there would be times when I would have little setbacks so I’d pull out my booklet again, listen to my DVDs and get myself straight back on track. I am so thankful for Gupta because he’s lived what we’ve lived for. And for those of you that are out there that know they can get better but they don’t know how: give it a try. You can always get your money back. It changed my life and I was able to walk across a whole country with my horse. So I will be forever grateful to the Gupta Program.

Give it a go!

I discovered the Gupta Program after being ill with CFS/ME for nearly 10 years. I'd tried or researched every reasonable or half-reasonable treatment and was still house-bound, desperately miserable and saw a no-hope future. The Gupta Program's approach of calming my brain's reactions to my environment was something completely new to me, but I thought it was worth a try given that everything else had failed.


...

I saw improvements in my emotional stability within a few months though physical improvements took longer and I had a major relapse when I let my retraining efforts slip. Now I'm more active than many people my age and still improving. Most importantly, joy and fun are back in my life. If and when bad stuff happens, I know that the Gupta Program has given me the tools and resilience to cope as well as anybody possibly can.

Our Ground-Breaking Study on the Gupta Program Published In The Prestigious Journal of Clinical Medicine

Giving Hope To Millions of Fibromyalgia Sufferers, as the First Randomized Controlled Trial Ever Published on a Neuroplasticity Program!

It is estimated that at least 2% to 5% of the population suffer from this complex pain condition in some form, and until now there has been a lack of effective treatments. The novel Neuroplasticity program known as “Amygdala and Insula Retraining” was combined with Mindfulness to create 'MAIR', also known as the Gupta Program, and was tested for 8 weeks against a control group engaging in an equivalent amount of relaxation techniques.

The results found that after just an 8 week intervention, the MAIR group had significantly greater reductions in symptoms and pain, and increases in overall health, compared to the control group:
