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...

    So I want to try this oxygen rebreather mask trick prescribed by Paul Cheney.

    I just don't know what to get and where. Is this a mask with a bag and a portable tank? Is there a type of oxygen tank I should get? Are there small portable ones?

    Do I need a prescription to get this?

    How much does the whole thing run?

    Thanks but it was this article that inspired me to try it. I just don't know how to practically obtain one of those masks. There are oxygen supply stores in Toronto but I don't know if I need a prescription? What size and type tank? etc

    You might look at some of these links about breathing to increase CO2:

    http://www.breathing.com/articles/carbon-dioxide.htm
    http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2013/11/24/buteyko-breathing-method.aspx
    http://smart-breathe.com/breathing-device/

    I don't know anything about the devices some of them mention, or a particular breathing protocol like Buteyko, but I think the point is to accomplish the same thing as Dr. Cheney's rebreathing apparatus.

    I was reading a lot about this some weeks ago, but never followed up. Though it's very interesting ---
