Frequently Asked Questions About Our Program
What is Dr. Lam’s recovery program?
As a board certified anti-aging physician, Michael Lam, MD, is internationally recognized for his expertise with Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome. He is the author of the reference book Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome, which presents the neuroendocrine basis of the condition and draws upon years of clinical experience helping countless around the world recover.
Dr. Lam's NeuroEndoMetabolic (NEM) Therapy uses personalized nutrition to support and nurture the body’s healing process naturally at the cellular level.
How is Dr. Lam’s program different from others?
Dr. Lam and his team have spent decades pioneering and perfecting NeuroEndoMetabolic (NEM) therapy, a natural approach to help the most severe cases of fatigue sufferers regain their vitality.
Dr.Michael Lam, MD, the pioneer of this therapy, is a western-trained board certified anti-aging medical physician with an eastern cultural background. Evolving from decades of clinical research, the therapy has successfully helped thousands of sufferers from around the world regain their vitality after conventional and alternative practitioners have given up.
The conventional approach of symptom patching and stimulation commonly used by conventional and natural health practitioners often leads to the worsening of fatigue and, over time, relapses, because the underlying pathology is masked. This can result in paradoxical reactions, hypersensitivities, extreme weakness, and sensitivity to chemicals, food, stress, drugs, and nutritional compounds. The body is in internal disarray although one can look healthy and have normal laboratory test results. Conventional medical practitioners as well as energy healers, acupuncture, chiropractic, herbal, IV therapy, and other nutritional therapeutics invariably fail. Sufferers can become housebound or bedridden.
The NeuroEndoMetabolic (NEM) therapy uniquely focuses on the root source right from the start. No stone is left unturned in the pursuit of finding the underlying cellular dysfunctions. By following the whispers of the body, proper personalized challenges can be deployed to fully understand each individual’s adaptive resilience, nutritional reserve, and healing capacity in real time.
Custom crafted nutritional cocktail and lifestyle recommendations are designed to prime and jumpstart the many neuroendocrine and metabolic pathways. This is very different from the shotgun approach of prescribing hormones, medications, vitamins, herbs, and glandular that tends to mask the root problem and provide temporary relief at best. NEM therapy focuses strongly on rebuilding the body’s 6 anti-stress circuits, so recovery is systematic, smooth, and relapse-free.
How long does it take?
The average program takes around three to six months. In more advanced cases up to two years may be required. The program is not for you if you are looking for a short term fix. We find the root cause of your condition and strive to support the body’s healing process. Although patience is required, many see a significant difference within a short time. A more accurate assessment will be presented to you during your initial telephone recovery interview.
How many Adrenal Fatigue coaching sessions will I need?
The average person requires approximately 8 to 12 sessions over a 3 to 6 month period. Advanced cases may require more. The starting period usually requires more intense in frequency. As you improve, frequency is reduced. Those who are severely decompensated require closer follow ups. The first session usually takes about one hour followed by 10-20 minute follow ups. Each session is goal driven as we are systematic in our recovery approach.
It is imperative that you mentally commit to at least a 3-month time frame to give the program a fair chance, especially if you are in an advanced stage. Patience and following instructions are key attributes to recovery success.
How do I know if I qualify for your program?
Unfortunately, not everyone qualifies for our nutritional coaching services**. During your recovery interview we will determine if you qualify.
We will not waste your time, energy or financial resources if we are not confident we can help you.
We request that you respect our final decision. If you do not qualify, you will be told the reasons and given your best recovery options.
** No doctor patient relationship is established at any time. Due to the nature of this condition, we do not guarantee success. The body possesses self-healing power when given the right natural tools and we can help guide you during that process.
What is the cost for nutritional supplements?
Although proper nutritional supplements are key in the recovery process, not everyone needs them. In fact, many are taking too many supplements and have many at home. If you require supplements, a budget of $5-7 per day usually suffices for the first three months.
Dr. Lam is an expert in nutritional supplement formulation. One of the reasons for our success is knowing how to formulate the right supplements and how to use them properly. We are very specific in our vitamin recommendation because there is a huge difference in quality, delivery system, potency and cellular delivery between formulas. When the body is sensitive and weak, even a small difference can make or break recovery. Wrong use of supplementation is a common cause of recovery failure and make your condition worse. We recommend the Dr. Lam brand available at SupplementClinic.com, an online nutritional supplement retail store that focuses on Adrenal Fatigue. The store is independently owned and operated by a family member to ensure excellent customer service and competitive pricing. Royalties received go toward our educational website. You are free to and encouraged to do your own comparative shopping.
