Hi guys: I have a theory regarding the core etiology of ME/CFS. You can read it in full at WelcomeToHeaven.com. Here is a snapshot. This is not medical advice and it has not been put through randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trials. * The universe is accelerating. Gravity, as predicted by Einstein and explained beautifully in this succinct PBS video—is “fake.” It is the acceleration of the surface of the earth through space that creates the illusion of gravity as well as the illusion of time. This is my opinion. As the universe accelerates outward from its center, time itself is occupying larger and larger spheres. The smaller spheres that are “below” the quantum field of the present are the past; the larger spheres that are “above” it are the future. As quantum physics teaches, all fields of time co-exist. (Again, Einstein was prescient: “The distinction between past, present, and future is only an illusion, however tenacious this illusion may be.” –March 1955) This is my opinion. People with ME/CFS are synced with the quantum field of the future. Their brains believe—perhaps because of calcified manganese in the pineal gland—that they are in a larger, higher-energy sphere. As a result, their bodies endeavor to maintain basal metabolic settings (heart rate, BP, orthostatic pressure, pH) that are inappropriately high. This is my opinion. There are two nervous systems. The brain, which reads the collective self through the individual lens. And the gut, which reads the individual self through the collective lens. With ME/CFS—as with many other illnesses—the two nervous systems clash. The software—the gut—knows the metabolic rate is too fast. But the hardware—the brain—thinks the metabolic rate is too slow. This computational error is why the body cannot correct itself. Every time the gut tries to put the brakes on metabolism, by producing ammonia, the brain revs it. (And there’s a cap to how much ammonia the body can tolerate.) ME/CFS is a kind of stealth acidosis that looks like alkalosis. In fact, because of the excess ammonia production, in a way it’s acidosis and alkalosis at the same time. This is why I use the phrases “pH paradox” and “basal metabolic gridlock.” This is my opinion. I had the opposite problem. I had stealth alkalosis that looked like acidosis. In both cases, there is a pH paradox and a problem with the level of ammonia and the iron to manganese ratio. To get out of my vicious cycle I had to do two things: salt-loading (stimulates adrenals and boosts acidity reserves), plus iodine (stimulates thyroid), plus manganese (stimulates pituitary). I also needed to take P5P (active B6) throughout the day, to allow my body to feel it could manipulate pH at a moment’s notice. It’d be preferable to solve the root problem—the pH paradox, the disconnect between the gut and brain—because until I do that, any B vitamins I give my body can be employed for cross-purposes. I’m in alkalosis (vis-à-vis Time), but while my brain believes me to be in acidosis, it will use my Bs to slow metabolism, and make ammonia, rather than to rev it.
