    Cheney's new research website is now available, for a fee.

    Jesus - never saw that coming! (Don't know why - now that I think about it). Our most expensive doctor must be paid for all the work he does doesn't he? Sorry about the sarcasm but I am disappointed not just that he requires ME/CFS patients to pay but that he puts such a high price tag on it; $50 for one month! Its too much for me - too bad!!

    I know he's supposed to be a BIG DEAL CFS expert, but honestly, his work makes my head spin. He writes up a very certain protocol one day, then does a complete about-face and totally contradicts the whole thing a few years later. :confused:

    Simon says... take 2 steps forward...no, make that 3 steps backward... no make that inside out and back assward. :rolleyes:

    He's not worth the money. And you're right JESUS would never have seen THAT coming.
    Not that I have any strong opinions about these things.:)

    Ha ha Wayne.
    And yeah DB...he does a lot of about-face. I suspect his peptide creams are valuable as I take Atrium peptides (he started with that) and they are definitely adjunctively helpful. I'd like to see those distributed more widely. Or I'd like to see Atrium add on a heart one.
    And I think his basic understanding of a subset of CFIDS downregulating to profound fatigue and even lowering blood volume to protect the heart and the body generally from cardiac arrest or death, makes sense.
    But beyond that I just don't know. I'm doubtful that patent foramen ovale or whatever that hole in the heart thing is, is a significant player in ME/CFIDS/SLYME (slime) disease...I don't know why he has so radically abandoned things he felt helped before. And I disagree about oxygen toxicity. Hyperbaric oxygen has saved my life.
    On the OTHER hand--the stem cell therapy--and taking patients there--is *fascinating*. I see that as a very hopeful thing for people who've been sick a long time.
