    I had a patient, probably meeting CFS criteria, who had an improvement, (as a matter of fact; I had to send him away to another professional, as he became aggressive towards me), after a prescription of Anapsos, a Calaguala fern extract, either from roots or aerial parts, having immunemodulating properties, it was HRA approved then for Atopic Dermatitis and Psoriasis, some of my patients suffering these skin disorders and prescribed Anapsos, had to switch dosing from hs to am, to avoid insomnia, indicating a CNS activating effect.
    Is this enough for implementing a focused clinical research?
    Thanks, regards, + Salut

    So it inhibits Th1? I thought Th1 was the desirable state for PWME. Interferon gamma might be beneficial for PWME who have enterovirus infections (Around 50% according to Dr John Chia). However, it was found to abolish IL-6 completely and also reduce TNF-a, so that might be beneficial.
