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.

    Listened to the last part of it. I don't buy it. The high adrenaline phenomenon is genetic and due to a double expression of the angiotensin converting enzyme gene. I can take 10 times a physiological course of hydrocortisone and still feel insane amounts of adrenaline rushing through me. There is truth to a lot of what he is saying - but I think the adrenal insufficiency that develops is a result of that gene. Interesting how he thinks cortisol deficiency causes bad flora to flourish.

    Interesting Dolphin, it will take some time to relisten and take in. But thinking back over my 12 years I am reminded how useless my GP(s) have been and perhaps should go back to medical schools.
