Genius Wanted ~ Anyone have a big (gut) picture theory? I posted re gut stuff in another area where anxiety (bowel/brain) is being discussed but thought I'd also post here for others like me who are overwhelmed, but heartened, by all of the info re the gut and ME I'm hoping that some genius on board is able to sythesize the information we're getting. I'm not able to think my way through the various threads and theories and make sense of it all. However, my gut feeling, so to speak, is that this is pivotal to, if not recovery, major improvement of symptoms and quality of life. Anyone care to take a stab at what this all means? Please! Many, many thanks!
