    I just got this reminder email -but I am working tomorrow night - it is from the Canadian Institute for the Relief of Pain and Disability about this event where Broadbent will no doubt refer to her recent paper unpacked and discussed here:

    http://forums.phoenixrising.me/inde...ects-on-lymphocytes-in-cfs.44323/#post-720570

    Where Broadbent concluded: Intermittent Exercise may be a more effective exercise modality with regard to enhanced CD4+ activation in CFS patients.

    I think it will be recorded so this is a great opportunity to question the validity of her research design and have it recorded for advocacy purposes.

    Who can pose her some questions during her webinar? There are some excellent points in the PR thread that can used.

    Has anyone listened to this? She seems to be suggesting squats and lunges while vacuuming or washing the dishes. Huh? Did I miss something?

    Given that CD4+ cell activation is not linked to functional impairment... Why should we care?

    I mean I dare say many patient groups, as well as healthy people also have the same CD4+ cell response.

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19203082
    And many other studies...

    They are trying to turn GET into pacing, without admitting it and that patients were right all along.

    The virologist I saw was more concerned about my low CD8 counts.

    How is raising CD4 counts supposed to increase aerobic capacity as she states?
