    New mystery illness after mosquitos, pesticide and travel. Would appreciate ID/opinions :)

    I would suspect the spraying for the insects did it. Maybe try some very gentle liver detoxing to see if that helps. I've never had a bad or harsh reaction to artichoke but of course, everyone is different. Also try to avoid further chemical exposures which will just add to your toxic load.

    Chinese skullcap seems to correct PEM/the energy problem in ME

    I posted a study earlier in the thread, albeit in chickens. I have not tried boswellia. Curcumin did not have any noticeable effect except for making GI issues worse, but that was when my gut issues were pretty bad, maybe I should try it again.
