Lessons from ME/CFS: Finding Meaning in the Suffering
If you're aware of my previous articles here at Phoenix Rising then it's pretty clear that I don't generally spend my time musing upon the philosophy of the disease. I find it better to spend my time reading research and trying my best to break it down to its core elements and write...

Dr. Martin Pall's book "Explaining Unexplained Illnesses"

    Has anyone else read this book ? I have read it once and have it here again from the library to have a 2nd read.

    I'm wondering how others feel about the theory that a short term stressor causes chronic illness.

    That is, why assume the stressor is gone as opposed to stored in the body ? Dr Myhill is finding that pesticidees and chemicals are elevated in fat biopsies of PWCs and FIR saunas is albe to redeuce these levels.\\

    any commentson the book/his methods are appreciated.

    Suzy, I read it a couple of years ago and can only say I was fascinated at the time, reagarding the commonalities of the various conditions, and thought he (they) were getting closer to an answer - at least in how to treat the fatigue symptom anyway. Sorry, beyond that I cannot comment because it's been a while and my brain is not quite was it used to be:)

    Pall's book

    Hi; just a quick reminder that a very much abbreviated account of Pall's thinking is available on his website:
    http://sprident.com/martin-pall/cfs.htm . Sorry, one day I will learn how to post proper links... and post smilies (please read the "ashamed" one here). Best, Chris

    It's a very good theory, imho - very "parsimonious" - but unfortunately I've never found anything to be able to quench the peroxynitrite and presumably break the cycle, including relatively high doses of gamma tocopherols, berry polyphenols, and even glutathione IVs.
