I spent every day for years propped up on pillows on my bed. I could see out my window to the left. My messy closet was to the right. Looking straight ahead I saw a television, a messy desk and a dresser.

    It is a process of the body involved with DNA and detoxification that seems to be off in a good part of the CFS/ME population. The avenues of treatment are either the ones proposed by Rickvank, Freddd or Yasko Simplified.

    I used Thorne's Pharma GABA. 1/2 of a capsule was best for me.

    Watch the Methylation Made Easy video #1 linked in my signature, but basically what Beyond said. Your body takes folate and B12 and uses it to make methyl groups. This runs over 40 very important processes in the body, including DNA, neurotransmitters, detoxification, and so forth.

    If your methylation is running poorly, then you will have a wide range of symptoms, which explains the symptoms of ME/CFS.

    So, for example, you're having problems with sleep. Sleep is regulated by the neurotransmitters serotonin and melatonin. If you're not methylating properly, you won't be making very many neurotransmitters, therefore, you won't be sleeping very well.

    If you improve methylation, you will make more serotonin and melatonin, and therefore be able to sleep better.

    Same deal with the GABA/glutamate balance - it should go back into balance, so you're not wired and tired.

    I've had success with all of those by doing methylation treatment, and don't need to supplement for those directly any more with 5htp, melatonin or GABA.

    It's right below my post. There are lots of blue links.

    Edited to Add - Oh, I think there is an option to turn off signatures. In that case, you'll have to turn signatures back on in your preferences.

    Hi @Spinney Lainey,

    I'm not @caledonia (and I don't know anything about methylation!) but I cut and pasted the link below (it's a youtube video) to save you a bit of trouble:

    Methylation Made Easy - if you don't know where to start - start here. Four short videos explain the basics. No background music version

    Hope this helps! :)

    @caledonia - I finally got to watch the video on methylation but I'm still unsure as to how I can go about treating myself. It mentions personalised supplementation - how would one find out what these should be.........?
