Review: 'Through the Shadowlands’ describes Julie Rehmeyer's ME/CFS Odyssey
I should note at the outset that this review is based on an audio version of the galleys and the epilogue from the finished work. Julie Rehmeyer sent me the final version as a PDF, but for some reason my text to voice software (Kurzweil) had issues with it. I understand that it is...

    If some cases of CFS are actually caused by mitochondrial failure, then I wonder how someone would do by megadosing literally every mitochondrial related supplement that is available. I realize this could be cost prohibitive for the long term, but it would be interesting to see what happened in the short term. Perhaps the could be mega dosed pre/post exersize or activity as well.

    The following supplements could be part of the megadosing experient.

    Creatine Monohydrate: 5 grams BID
    CoQ10 (or a lower dose of ubiquinol): 1000 mg BID
    D-Ribose: 7.5 mg BID
    Adb12: 4000 mcg BID (sublingual)
    NADH: 10-20 mg BID
    Transdermal Magnesium Cholride: 8 sprays BID
    Magnesium L-Threonate: 100 mg BID
    L-Carinitine (optionally NAC or LCF): 2 grams BID
    Pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ): 20 mg BID

    Also this assumes all critical EAA's, minerals, and vitamin intake is already accounted for.


    The following medications could also be used (optional):
    t3 slow release or regular cytomel (carefully titrating up to highest dose that dosen't cause hyperthyroid symptoms)

    Any thoughts on what to add to this list?

    Is this spelled correctly?: Magnesium L-Theorate: 100 mg BID

    thought it was threonate or something like that?

    You might want to read this thread on mitochondrial supplements--many members have discussed them there.

    Thanks, Sushi, I'll check it out. My main idea was the "mega dose concept."

    We have discussed the mega dose concept quite a bit on various threads. There was quite a bit of this discussion of this with Rich.
