International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    Has anyone tried this? Is it a practical solution? Or dangerous?

    Each time I try methylation, I have to quit after a day or 2 because of overwhelming symptoms that are improved with additional potassium. But I can't seem to get enough potassium absorbed orally -- whether in food or dissolved tablets, it irritates my gut and just comes out the other end.

    There is also a limit to how much food I can eat; I eat only stuff high in potassium (e.g. carrot juice, coconut water) but it does not seem to be enough.

    I've tried a google forum search on the topic, but didn't find anything, though I imagine this must have been discussed before now!

    Potassium injection can be deadly. Thread carefully.

    This is what they inject death row convicts with. Potassium. Also, potassium burns when injected inthe veins (always diluted with lots of fluid) I cannot imagine what it would be like injected in the tissus, beside the fact, like I mentioned, that it can be deadly.
