International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    Hi, I thought an "easy to read" thread (not a discussion thread), for just for any POSTIVE developments in the ME/CFS fields which could be updated whenever something new happened or is noticed would be a good idea.

    - Norwegian reseach breakthrou (Rituxmab) http://forums.phoenixrising.me/show...kthrough-with-Rituximab-can-solve-CFS-mystery!!!

    - The Norwegian scientists win an award for their research http://forums.phoenixrising.me/showthread.php?14787-Norwegian-ME-researchers-Receive-Award

    - NHS Scotland recommends to diagnose ME and separate it from CFS http://forums.phoenixrising.me/show...ith-the-Canadian-Criteria-and-separate-it-fro

    - A medical site which is actually giving truthful info about ME and CFS.
    check out slideshow 5 (which points out ME is a different illness to ME) and slideshow 12 (which is describing CFS and not ME).

    This is about 6 weeks old, but I think may be the best explanation yet of the methylation block - glutathione depletion hypothesis. A good introduction to RichVank's simplified protocol, a presentation he made in Sweden.

    The video is several hours, so best to watch when you have time to absorb. There are links to the slides in the Swedish text below the video, just click on the two .pdf file links.

    This thread sounds like a good idea.

    re medicine.net, I am not impressed; it seems like mostly a regurgitation of CDC nonsense.
