The End ME/CFS Project: History Taking Root
The history books record that in the nineteenth century Louis Pasteur formulated a “germ theory” of microbes as the causative agents of disease, and thus revolutionized medicine. His findings, along with his contemporary, John Snow (who linked cholera to infected water supply),...

    I have kept my full time job for one year now.....there were some struggles, and I'm not sure how long I will be able to work full time, but I really love my job and the social contact it provides.

    I am hanging in there. The methylation supplements really seem to have provided an ongoing help with weakness/fatigue, but my challenges are still chemical sensitivity and pain cycles. When I have pain, I must medicate, which makes the chemical sensitivity worse.

    I still think of Rich often and am so thankful for his willingness to share his ideas with all of us!

    Based on my research I think Rich was mistaken on that. He only posted about it once as far as I could tell. Since then, he posted multiple times about supplements helpful for excitotoxicity, but never mentioned folinic acid. The main reason Rich recommended folinic acid was due to it's role in creating nucleotides. This is from Rich:

    I have now kept my full time job for 1 and one half years. It has been difficult to be sure and I am far from "cured," but I think the supplements have created a major shift in symptoms away from the weakness and fatigue that made full-time work impossible for so long.

    I have never changed my approach with mB12 and methylfolate. I believe that, for me, the "almost homeopathic approach" has been a safe and effective one. Merry Christmas everyone and I wish you better health in 2015.

    Hello everyone,
    I wanted to stop by and report on my progress. I'm still working full time and I've been able to add exercise like never before. My job is very demanding, but hopefully it will get a bit easier in a semester or two.

    I still have CFS. There are things that I can't do and wouldn't even try, like carrying heavy things uphill, for example. But I can do water aerobics several times a week, AFTER work!! And while I still consider myself to be chemically sensitive, I am teaching anatomy/physiology courses using cat dissections. Sometimes I can't believe it myself.

    My biggest problem now is anxiety. I need to stop using caffeine and sugar and that should help.

    While I don't have time to read up on everything you are learning, I want to stay connected.

    I still use ridiculously tiny doses of mB12 and methyltetrahydrofolate twice a week or so.
