We recognize that in the past you may have felt your health concerns were not listened to.

We listen deeply, observe, and communicate with you about your unique challenges. Gordon Medical Associates is internationally recognized for helping patients who feel ill, but have normal test results, at least with the tests most commonly done.

Dr. Gordon says, “I believe my patients. Their description of what is going on in their body is the most accurate way we have to assess what is going on with them. I interpret the information they present, and blend it with laboratory results and imaging and other tests to determine a protocol that is customized to their condition.”

To us, your health issues present real, complex, interrelated symptoms.

``Metabolic features of chronic fatigue syndrome``

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a multisystem disease that causes long-term pain and disability. It is difficult to diagnose because of its protean symptoms and the lack of a diagnostic laboratory test. We report that targeted, broad-spectrum metabolomics of plasma not only revealed a characteristic chemical signature but also revealed an unexpected underlying biology. Metabolomics showed that chronic fatigue syndrome is a highly concerted hypometabolic response to environmental stress that traces to mitochondria and was similar to the classically studied developmental state of dauer. This discovery opens a fresh path for the rational development of new therapeutics and identifies metabolomics as a powerful tool to identify the chemical differences that contribute to health and disease.

Metabolomics Q&A for CFS v6

Metabolic features of chronic fatigue syndrome
We are pursuing the goal of matching patient to therapy.

We are exploring many modalities of treatment, and partnering with researchers at UCSD, Stanford University, and the Society of Cannabis Clinicians, along with several groups working to improve collecting and processing patient history and outcome data.

 Analyzing Individual Metabolomics Study (AIMS) is now recruiting, conducted by our research arm, Science in Service of Humanity (SISOH.) The study is being done with advice from the Naviaux Lab at UC San Diego. AIMS will be the third metabolomics study looking at how comprehensive metabolomics analysis can be used to evaluate CFS/ME. AIMS builds on our previous studies, also conducted in collaboration with Robert Naviaux at UC San Diego, which demonstrated there is a clear metabolomic profile in patients with CFS/ME.

Keep up to date on news about the research by signing up to receive notifications on the SISOH website, or through the GMA blog.

TESTIMONIALS

Our patients come from all over the world to receive our care for a wide range of complex chronic illnesses.

Gordon Medical - For the first time in years, I felt like I was taken seriously. I had someone, finally, put their hand on my shoulder and say, "You are going to be alright." And, she was right.
