Review: 'Through the Shadowlands’ describes Julie Rehmeyer's ME/CFS Odyssey
I should note at the outset that this review is based on an audio version of the galleys and the epilogue from the finished work. Julie Rehmeyer sent me the final version as a PDF, but for some reason my text to voice software (Kurzweil) had issues with it. I understand that it is...

    Found this
    about fatigue, sleeplessness.
    My English is not that good, so I did not understand it fully
    but it seems very usefull, at least to me,
    because all my normal sleep / tiredness rithm & sensations are F*** up.
    And because I have the feeling my ME is food related - but I do not know how.
    maybe anyone could help me understand this better.
    Take care

    @rwac thnx for u'r reaction.
    - what I don't understand ??
    Haha - I don't remember ...
    I read few more of Ray Peat's articles and I start to get the picture.
    It is about how specific foods infuence the hormones;
    and that Thyroid hormone is especially important and progeterone.

    If u figured out more - it would be nice if u could note it.
    the ppl from follow up the reactions of the patient solely by temp and pols
    and the feeling of the patient after eating.
    It sounds like something I should do.

    Most of us have wrong timing for our sleep cycles. Healthy people have higher cortisol in the day and low at night. Ours is reversed.

    Many of us have problems with detoxification and something called the "methylation cycle". We test our genes and take supplements to fix the broken cycles.

    Many of us have adrenals that are overworked or nearly burned out. Adrenals and thyroid are important. For thyroid, if your blood test shows normal, you may still have low thyroid.

    We also have problems with pituitary, temperature regulation, etc.

    Many have food intolerances and we have to go on a strict diet. Gluten, corn, soy, dairy, peanuts, lectins, and others can destroy a person's gut lining. You can heal it with avoidance of those and bone broth. Or find if you are sensitive to nightshades, oxalates, citrus, nuts, shellfish, etc.
