There is a compound I have been using for patients with fatigue and chronic fatigue due to Epstein Barr virus, Lyme and or mold. It is called the Vasoactive Intestinal Peptide ( VIP) This is a 28 amino acid neuropeptide that belongs to the glucagon growth hormone- releasing factor secretion superfamily. I usually do not think of it when I first meet the patient. I need to balance other endocrine organs as the thyroid and the adrenals. I first balance the gut as I do with all illnesses.
VIP has anti inflammatory as well as has immunomodulating effects
VIP is rapidly transformed into something than a mere hormone. It evolves to modify one’s immune system and immune function VIP plays an important role in the cell’s response
