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.

Hope for those with hard-to-treat intracellular infections.

    Would this put more strain on mitochondria as well?

    Haha, I'm not the right person to ask about that. I wasn't even aware it might be an issue - are all antibiotics toxic to mitochondria or just Doxy?

    bacteriacidal antibiotics to a certain degree yes, floroquinoline antibiotics being particularly nasty. Usually in short term treatment it is not anything severe or permenant aside from quinoline class antibiotics, taking NAC can also help safe guard the mitochondria while on antibiotics. I just wonder if this form would be easier or harder on mitochondria, though it does seem very promising!
