Dr Cheney's O2 toxicity and antioxidants and dif sorts of cfs patients


Senior Member
Dr Cheney and Bell and Myhill and others talk about the mitochondrial problem etc

A simple lay out of Cheney's ideas:


I recall he recs caution with antioxidants for some as it may effect the oxygen problem in the wrong way for some. I think there was a big thread about antioxidants at experimetal a year or so ago that was really interesting that showed the possible downside for some cfs peeps with antioxidants.

I feel worse usually on antioxidants like coenzyme q10 etc I want to try acacia because my friend is really losing weight on it but since its an antioxidant I figure might be bad idea in my case.
How many of you think yr the type of cfs o2-prob sort that doesnt feel better on antioxidants and if so would you steer clear of acacia?
