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.

    I want to say I don't have fibromyalgia but came across an interesting article from a Dr. Kurland. Here is his site..

    It's an interesting theory about how phosphates aren't completely eliminated from the body due to a defect in the kidneys. There are some interesting points that he makes. Mostly it's a different view point with explanations.

    I find it interesting because the vitamin K protocol advises the use of phosphate to help with energy production and rebalancing lactic acidosis. In this article due to kidney defects phosphates seem to be the culprit. It's interesting how phosphates can be viewed as necessary in one and as a contaminant in another.
    Have a good one.

    That's a very old theory, a decade or more old at least, pushed by a guy named St. Amand. I don't think it really ever panned out, although I think there are some people who claimed to have improved from it, whether because of placebo/wishful thinking or otherwise. I don't think it's a particularly high risk protocol, but of course you always have to be careful when taking a xenobiotic drug or when starting something new... or when being on something for a while... or when coming off something you've been on for a while... ;-)
