The ProHealth story begins back in August 1981, when at the age of 23, Rich Carson woke up one day with severe flu-like symptoms. Rich saw a specialist who ran tests for strep throat and mononucleosis, but the results for both tests were negative. Sometime later, while still feeling extremely ill, Rich spoke with an internist who informed him that he may be suffering from either a chronic cytomegalovirus or a chronic Epstein-Barr virus infection. Pointed in the right direction, Rich telephoned every researcher he could find to investigate his illness, which has since come to be known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
By 1986, Rich was spending two or three hours a day on the telephone with CFS patients and researchers, and started one of the first and largest CFS support groups in the country. Rich’s determination to help CFS patients soon lead to the creation of ProHealth, Inc. Founded in 1988, the company’s mission is to provide a comprehensive resource for people with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia.
An important part of Rich’s treatment plan includes alternative therapies that greatly relieve many of his symptoms. The Health Resource Catalog was published to share with other patients the supplements he found to be most effective. Additionally, Rich realized the Internet is a great way to spread useful, up-to-the-minute information to the many thousands of CFS and FM sufferers worldwide, and so ImmuneSupport.com was created.
ProHealth knows that research is the key to finding cures for CFS and FM, and it is our mission to help fund important research studies. Since 1988, ProHealth has raised and donated over $2.61 million to organizations dedicated to researching CFS and FM and finding effective treatments. We have proudly made contributions to Action for ME, the CFIDS Association of America, Inc., the National Fibromyalgia Association (NFA), and the National Fibromyalgia Research Association, to name a few. When you shop with ProHealth you support research, since a portion of the profits from each purchase you make goes toward funding CFS and FM research and advocacy.
