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.

Our most active current research is the Metabolomics Research we are doing in collaboration with Robert Naviaux of UCSD, through our research arm, Science in Service of Humanity (SISOH), and funded through the newly established Gordon Medical Research Center (GMRC). You can now make a tax deductible donation to help support this important research!

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

Eric Gordon, co-author on CFS metabolomics study, to speak at Millions Missing Rally in San Francisco September 27

Eric Gordon, MD, co-author of the groundbreaking study, “Metabolic features of chronic fatigue syndrome“, recently published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, will be speaking at the Millions Missing San Francisco rally as part of the global protest for ME/CFS rights.


For Those Who Are Unable to Attend Personally, There Are Seven Ways to Participate Virtually

1) Put your shoes on your door step or at the end of your driveway

On  September 27th, take a pair of shoes (or several) and put them on your doorstep, lawn, or driveway. Take a photo and post it on social media #MillionsMissing. Anyone can participate, whether you are a patient or an ally expressing solidarity. You might pair the shoes with a sign that expresses what the empty shoes mean to you. Some examples: “I cannot walk to the end of my driveway” or “My brother should be here.” Imagine if thousands of homes around the world put out their shoes in solidarity with the protestors in the streets.

The LENS- The treatment starts out with the practitioner placing very small electrode pads to specific spots on your head. In my case, Suzy placed them in seven different spots on the left side of my head — however, depending on one’s sensitivity and/or medical situation, someone may have less or more. With closed eyes, these electrode pads transfer the extremely small amounts of EEG frequencies to your brain, one electrode pad to one site at a time.
