Cheney's first newsletter is out. He had some things to say about the gut. http://cheneyclinic.com/gut-dysbiosis-modulates-significant-cfs-symptoms/247 I like Cheney's honesty here: his GMP, anyway, will not cure and sometimes has little effect. Then again it may not be - certainly is not actually - as extensive as De Meirleir's program - which involves antibiotics. Cheney does not to my knowledge use antibiotics. Interesting - for someone who said he was tired of chasing viruses - he now says that 'viruses are at the core of CFS' as well as the redox problems he's focusing on. It could be that he always thought viruses were key but was simply tired of chasing them down (unsuccessfully) with antivirals. Artesunate - usually thought of as an antibacterial but which also has antiviral properties- is being used to hit the viruses but apparently not the bacterial overgrowth. This appears to suggest that he believes that the bacterial overgrowth in the gut is secondary. One wonders if Artesunate has any effectiveness against those bacteria. http://aboutmecfs.org/Trt/Artesunate.aspx Raw food! That's interesting. Raw food is good for me. Glad Cheney is getting this out there. They all should really - DeMeirleir, Peterson, Lapp, Klimas....little bits now and then would be very helpful. Although I have to say I hope he devotes more time to the next issue!
