ME/CFS: A disease at war with itself
We can all agree that ME/CFS is a nasty disease, particularly in its severe form, but there are abundant nasty diseases in the world. What is unique and particularly confounding about our disease is that so much controversy surrounds it, and not only surrounds it, but invades it too.

Where should I begin?

    Hi -

    I've been watching Richvan's lectures on glutathione deficiency, and the symptoms are like a copybook of what I've experienced with CFS. I'm being tested for my glutathione levels now; however, I've just got back a hair analysis, and by applying the "counting rules" adopted by Andy Cutler, I am very probably mercury toxic. This would imply that both AC's and Richvank's protocols would be beneficial to me; my question is: which should I adopt first? Do I need to adopt both?

    I had thought that Richvank's would be best, because that might explain the mercury build-up (and associated low Na/K; lithium; high Ca/low Mg). Also, if I have trouble with methylation, I'm trying to clear mercury from a body that is prone to storing it!

    Very complex!

    Any views gratefully received.

    According to Cutler, glutathione supplementation will likely worsen symptoms in mercury toxic people.

    Rich's Simplified Methylation protocol doesn't include glutathione supplementation. Rather, restoration of methylation will naturally restore glutathione levels to normal.
