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.

    Marco wrote a series of articles about ME/CFS being a neuroinflammatory disorder. One of them focused specifically on glutamate. This one has links to the other three articles (including the one on glutamate) at the end of the article:

    Rich thought one of the causes of high glutamate was low glutathione in the brain for which he recommended L-cystine (rather than L-cysteine or NAC). He also thought low manganese could be an issue. This is a discussion between him and Asklipia.
    Here Rich explains his reasoning for low glutathione in the brain causing high glutamate
    This is the study Rich was referring to about low glutathione in the brain

    When I crave bananas, I take it as a sign I need potassium, and when I take some potassium the banana cravings go away. I wouldn't mind, but they are so sweet.

    It's interesting, I wish I could understand more of it, but right now I'm experiencing one of my headaches. But it mentions several things that worked together to help me figure out one piece of my puzzle, and give me so much more of my freedom and life back. The amygdala, PTSD and chemical sensitivities. I used a technique that they used to help vets coming home from the middle east who had PTSD (they used to call this shell-shock). It goes by different names: amygdala retraining, brain retraining, EFT, tapping, EMDR(?). Lots more names. But it works for many things. I just can't get it to work for my GABA/glutamate problem. I guess I'm not accessing whatever "early-life event" that I need to clear out. Thanks for that link.

    Red meat actually doesn't appear to be that bad (at least beef isn't see https://msgfacts.com/glutamate-in-food/), brocolli and potatoes (too pick not obvious examples) are much worse. Long cooked meat is bad, perhaps that's what you were thinking of.
