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.

Through what mechanism does sulfate cause problems?

    Is the fight or flight thing proven, or is it just a Yasko thing?

    How exactly does sulfate cause problems for some? Histamine release?

    Here is an old abstract talking about catecholamine sulfates, which they claim are the predominant form of catecholamines. Apparently, they don't play well with the enzymes that convert dopamine to noradrenaline and noradrenaline to adrenaline. Connect that if you can (and then tell the rest of us)!

    The only other thing I can think of is that sulfites can combine with cystine to form s-sulfocysteine, a glutamate analog.

    To be clear, I am not confusing sulfates and sulfites. If he (Heartfixer doc) positively says that "this is a problem that increases when you take molybdenum," (thus increasing sulfates at the expense of sulfites) then I'm not sure what to say.
