Thanks for posting this Ben.

I feel very strongly that the OMF's primary focus of the immune system, brain, gut and mitochondria, encompasses the primary cause and pathways of ME/CFS. That's why I feel it's SO important for meetings and symposiums like this one!

I feel like researchers already have a lot of the answers but just haven't been able to connect the dots because each researcher has their own specialty. So they are limited when it comes to making other connections within other body systems.

For instance, Jarred Younger's specific area of knowledge is the brain and he doesn't know a lot about the gut etc.

This is why I get excited about these kinds of meetings. I'm hoping they will be able to get some insights from each other. To help each other connect the dots so to speak, get more answers and pass those answers on to us.:):thumbsup:
