The Real ME: A Stock Photography Resource for the Media
We’ve all seen them in the news stories about ME/CFS: the guy in a suit at the office, yawning; the beautiful woman sitting at her desk with her immaculate make-up and elegantly coiffed hair, hand to her head and looking slightly pained.

    My 2 cents... I am suffering from lots of intestinal issues, leaky gut, parasites and lots of irritation.
    Arginine is no good for me. 1000mg is good enough to worsen the inflammation pretty badly and I think it's because it pushes the nitric oxide, which is probably already out of whack.

    Of course, we're all different and what is poison for me might work wonders for you.

    I just wish I knew last year, when I was taking arginine and slowly got worse but didn't realize the connection until I ran out of the supplement and had to wait 15 days the new order.

    A week after having stopped the L-Arginine I was already better.

    @kel88 I switched from arginine, ornithine, citrulline. lysine combo to malic acid about 6 months ago. I use the malic in footbaths. I have had no herpes activity during this time, so I suspect that malic is certainly not feeding viruses. Which is not to say I had increased virial activity w/ arginine. ASAIK I did not.

    Anything that raises arginine/NO gives me herpes reactivations.
