    This I think will turn out to be a big part of how ME gets its "hold" over you. Maybe.

    Something gets detected, perhaps even false positives, and "metabolism mode" gets turned on even though there isn't an imminent threat.

    This is a really really old idea, I first ran into it maybe in the 90s. Its nice to see more of the mechanisms being worked out though.

    Along those lines, AAAS hosted a one-hour webinar April 27, 2016 titled "Metabolic Regulation of Immunity" covering new insights in the field some of which Dr. Ron Davis' recent research may be touching upon.
