Alison's Life with Chronic Fatigue & Fibromyalgia


Alison Adams' background

Alison Adams comes from a family with a big history of autoimmune diseases where many female relatives died comparatively young after lifelong illnesses. Alison suffered from birth with chronic digestive, endocrine, musculoskeletal and hearing problems. As time went by, a growing list of allergies and sensitivities were added to the list in addition to reproductive problems and almost constant infections.

As a result, Alison Adams has seen specialists in just about every discipline over the years, has had batteries of tests and therapies, taken pharmaceuticals pretty much continuously and had 21 operations. 

Over the decades, Alison also tried many alternative therapies, none of which really impacted her condition. In short, she has never felt well and has spent much of her life looking for the ‘magic bullet’ that would allow her to realise the health that has evaded her for so long.


Alison Adams: Becoming a dentist

In spite of having some health-related set-backs in her academic life, Alison Adams qualified as a dentist from the former Guy’s Hospital Dental School in London in 1983 and after working for a number of years later obtained a Master’s degree in Restorative Dentistry from the University of Michigan, USA in 1992.

Alison has 18 years of full-time clinical experience working as a dentist and also acquired some practical business acumen from running her own private central London practice for seven years. During this time she also had articles published in dental journals and occasionally lectured to both postgraduate and specialist dental groups.


Alison Adams: Health crisis

Finally and inevitably, Alison's lifelong health problems culminated in a health crisis that was variously diagnosed as chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), fibromyalgia and/or an autoimmune disease in mid-life. 

At this time Alison was shocked to encounter a mixture of both disinterest and hostility from the medical professionals she consulted and was forced to sell her dental practice intending to take time out to recover.

Figure carrying ball and chain

However, to her great dismay her health deteriorated even further and she found herself at an all-time low after six months of supposedly 'curative' rest. It slowly dawned on her that she might be in the process of dying and the realisation that the cavalry definitely weren’t coming prompted an urgent search for answers.

Upon reflection, it became obvious that whilst other family members had opted for all the treatment that conventional medicine had to offer there were no real options in relation to autoimmune diseases.

Around this time, Alison also started to understand that most of the conventional medical solutions she had been offered were a big part of the problem and she vowed to use natural health means and work with her body rather than against it.


Fighting back

During this period of infirmity, Dr Adams intensively researched topics around her health issue and rejected outright the possibility of ‘managing’ or ‘coping’ with her illness and determined that nothing less than full recovery was acceptable to her.

All of the books that Alison read classified chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and fibromyalgia as being multi-factorial and she fundamentally felt that if you couldn’t identify the cause, you didn’t stand much of a chance of finding a solution.

Motivated by the fact that she potentially had 40 more years of life left to live that were worth fighting for, she determined that she would do anything and everything in her power to fully recover.


Alison Adams: Becoming a naturopath

Through a series of fortuitous events she ‘fell into’ both Allergy Therapy and Kinesiology (both therapies employ muscle testing as a way of dialoguing with the body) which opened new inner doors of understanding for her. Alison gained diplomas in Classical Kinesiology, Integrated Kinesiology and Allergy Therapy and is recognised by both parent professional organisations.

Dr Adams ultimately obtained 8 diplomas in a variety of related subjects and also studied spiritual healing.

Alison Adams' Recovery

Figure walks away from ball and chains

Recovery from chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia took Alison several years of consistent and persistent work on all levels and also quite a lot of going up blind alleys before finding what worked.

There were many times when she doubted whether the health she sought would be forthcoming, however having lost all faith in conventional medicine and its solutions, she had little choice other than to plough on.

Recovery also cost Dr Adams a not inconsiderable amount of money, took a lot of determination and required enduring some quite arduous symptoms of detoxification.

Was it gruelling? Indisputably. Was it worth it?

The answer is a thousand times: Yes.

Following treatment similar to that outlined in the book, Alison has slowly but steadily been able to restore a completely dysfunctional digestive system and to reintroduce foods. She has also eliminated medication and is now free of constant pain. The heavy feelings of struggling are gone and have been replaced with waking from sound, refreshing sleep feeling cheerful and energetic. Her allergies and sensitivities are almost eliminated, infections rare and she has also managed to rehabilitate a non-functioning thyroid gland and get her hormones on an even keel.

"Alison's journey to good health should be an inspiration to all."

Developing a special interest

Through kinesiology, Alison Adams eventually and somewhat reluctantly realised that what she had been suffering with had been CHRONIC MERCURY POISONING. Whilst at the time, Alison believed her situation to be unique, she now realises that various levels of chronic mercury poisoning are endemic within the dental profession who have ongoing occupational exposure to mercury vapour in addition to acquiring mercury from other sources (fish, vaccinations, their own dental amalgam fillings, etc). For more on this topic please refer to Dr Alison Adams: My Story of Mercury Poisoning

However, when, after learning a specific postgraduate kinesiology technique to uncover ‘hidden’ toxins, ALL of Alison Adams' clients tested positive to mercury toxicity she became convinced that chronic mercury poisoning is playing a huge, unrecognised role in intractable illness on a societal scale.

Dr Adams' came to understand that it is the unseen cause of the hundred or so autoimmune diseases and was what had been ailing her family all along. These realisations spurred further research into the subject as a result of which she now promotes a revolutionary new approach to the treatment of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), fibromyalgia and autoimmune diseases. 

So, what makes her approach different?


  1. Alison Adams' background as both a dentist and naturopath mean that she has the qualifications, experience and professional know-how
  2. As a former sufferer Alison has intimate, first-hand experience of the descent into a fatigue syndrome and of the uphill struggle to recover
  3. Having worked with other chronic fatigue syndrome, ME, fibromyalgia and autoimmune disease sufferers Alison's expertise is grounded in practical reality - in short, she knows what works!
  4. Crucially, Alison's approach addresses the ROOT CAUSE and not the symptoms of these illnesses
  5. Dr Adams' programme supports your body’s own innate healing processes using natural health means and techniques wherever possible
  6. Ultimately though, what really makes her approach different is her passion for YOU TO RECOVER from your chronic fatigue syndrome, ME or fibromyalgia too!

Alison Adams: Becoming an author

Looking through other books on chronic fatigue syndrome, ME and fibromyalgia, Alison noticed that many either omitted to mention chronic mercury poisoning from dental amalgam fillings at all or mentioned it only briefly as ONE of many possible causative factors.

Dr Adams rapidly realised that the number of people she could reach and help as a practitioner was extremely limited and determined to share with other fatigue syndrome sufferers worldwide what it had taken her so long and cost her so much to discover.

To that end she wrote and had published the paperback Chronic Fatigue, ME, and Fibromyalgia: The Natural Recovery Plan and is also the author of the E-book Top 10 Tips 4 Recovery: Reclaiming Your Health and Vitality and the many articles which appear on this website.

".. gives you the tools and information you need to tackle your own health problems."
Dr Mark Breiner, US Holistic dentist and author of Whole Body Dentistry


The future

Figure lecturing

Dr Alison Adams is passionate about empowering others to reclaim their health and provides the information other chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), ME, fibromyalgia and autoimmune disease sufferers need to recover through this website.

She also hosts a website at which addresses the far reaching effects that dental materials and dental procedures are having upon health that are only now being acknowledged. The MouthBody Doctor website defines a new paradigm of holistic dental care which recognises the interrelatedness of the health of the mouth to that of the body and the role of nutrition in oral and facial health and development.

Dr Adams also gives presentations and talks on related topics. For more information on this subject please refer to the Services page
