    Both "long" COVID-19 and CFS are likely caused by hypometabolism

    A good study that examines the remarkable parallels between the so-called "long" COVID-19 (i.e. chronic display of symptoms associated with COVID-19) and the (in)famous chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). Namely, increases inflammation, excessive glycolysis, suppressed mitochondrial function and...

    Thiamine (Vitamin B1) And Fatigue In Inflammatory Bowel Diseases

    Results: Ten patients out of twelve showed complete regression of fatigue, while the remaining two patients showed nearly complete regression of fatigue compared to the chronic fatigue syndrome scale scores before therapy. Conclusions: The absence of blood thiamine deficiency and the efficacy...

    The Anti-cancer Chemical DCA May Treat Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)

    Over the last 2 years, I posted a few studies on the stress-induced origins of CFS as well as some of details about the pathology such as downregulated activity of the enzyme PDH. That enzyme is crucial for proper glucose metabolism and is downregulated in many other conditions, especially...

    Pregnenolone As A Possible Treatment Of CFS/ME

    I just posted yet another study showing that CFS/ME is a metabolic disorder that can be treated using various substances that activate PDH and Krebs cycle activity. CFS/ME Once Again Confirmed As A Metabolic Disorder This study took an alternative path and discovered that people with CFS/ME...

    CFS/ME Once Again Confirmed As A Metabolic Disorder

    I posted previously about recent research indicating that CFS/ME is likely due to hypometabolism caused by environmental stress. https://raypeatforum.com/community/threads/confirmed-cfs-is-hypometabolism-triggered-by-environmental-stress.12405/ The earlier studies found lower activity of the...

    The Ability To Metabolize Glucose Is Impaired In CFS/ME Patients

    The enzyme pyruvate dehydrogenase (PDH) is perhaps the single most important factor in proper glucose metabolism and it is often severely downregulated (both in function and levels) in a number of diseases, most notably cancer, diabetes and neurodegenerative conditions. Without proper...

    Endotoxin (LPS) Is A Probable Cause For Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS / ME)

    It seems like the bad news about endotoxin (LPS) just don't stop. After the recent studies implicating in many degenerative conditions, and especially Alzheimer, systemic sclerosis, ALS, etc not this study links it to the so-called chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS / ME), which the medical...

    CFS Is Likely Hypometabolism Triggered By Environmental Stress

    Ray has discussed his views on the so-called "chronic fatigue syndrome" (CFS) in many interviews and some of his articles. His opinion is that CFS is simply hypothyroidism with some specific symptoms depending on individual susceptibility. Many people vehemently disagree with this opinion, but...

    CFS Pathology Tied To Increased Blood Levels Of Endotoxin

    After more than a decade of denial that the "mysterious" condition CFS even exists as a physiological state, mainstream medicine may be warming up to the fact that it is not simply in patients' heads. This latest study found changes in patients' microbiome as well as elevatd levels of endotoxin...

    Azithromycin, CFS, And Acetylcarnitine

    I randomly took a 3 tab zpak of azithromycin that I had laying around and after a day of die-off/worsening of flu-like symptoms (cypro helped counteract this) I experienced 2-3 days (until the last azithro wore off) of what I'd effectively call remission. Someone on the Facebook group tipped me...

    Clonidine May Treat CFS

    Ray has written occasionally about a drug called clonidine. It is an anti-adrenaline drug and is currently used for managing withdrawal symptoms in "addicts" among other things. It has some success for managing schizophrenia symptoms as well. Given that adrenaline is a stress hormone, it is not...
