    Perhaps it is due to my ever present brain fog, but after listening to the entire talk, I didn’t hear anything new.

    Dr Peterson was invited to Sweden to give a presentation at a seminar on ME/CFS in the Swedish parliament on the topic “What is ME/CFS? – History and research” – so it was hardly an event where news were to be expected… The presentation was reportedly greatly appreciated by the invited politicians and health officials.

    Many thanks to Dr Peterson for helping the ME/CFS issue along in Sweden!

    Look to latent-infecting viruses e.g. Herpes like HSV 1, 2, EBV, CMV, etc:

    This is an excellent overview of this illness. I did not learn anything new, but many others could, if they took the time to listen to this talk. I agree with the idea of latent-infecting viruses eg. Herpes 1,2, ebv, cmv. also fungal infections as well. I believe that in susceptible people, more than one microorganism can injure the brain and cause the disability. of me fm.

      Regardless of the original or underlying cause, notwithstanding genetics, connecting the dots and logic seems to dictate this is a disease of TOXINS! So, what is the primary source of the toxins? The ecology of the gut. RP

        Absolutely! Inflammation and infection, microorganisms that get a chance to invade, get into the blood stream, get past the blood brain barrier and here you go. Since I have been routinely taking probiotics, apple cider vinegar, and other vinegars, unsweetened cranberry juice and eating a well researched healthy diet, mostly fruits and vegetables, stay away from sick people and hospitals, I have kept well. By practising good hand washing and other basic hygiene principles, I have not taken an antibiotic or have had an infection for over 10years. Maybe it is just luck, but my main job is taking care of my health, which is to reduce stress, exercise in moderation, especially stretching and weight bearing activities. get rest and good comfortable sleep when needed and socialize in good health relationships. This is how I manage living with me fm mcs. some people may think this is selfish, but to me it is survival.

          My experience is a total 180 from yours Judith………an unexpected UTI and prostatitis infection led me on a course of CIPRO which after about 3-4 days made me feel better than I have in years…..I had been suspecting I had an bacterial infection lurking in me aside from all of those Herpes viruses….putting fruit and most veggies in me will make me violently ill…..fructose and gluten intolerant…..tyramine sensitive …..corn sensitive……etc ++++

    After being ill with Chronic Fatigue , and CMV since 1987. I have heard the same old talk over and over. CDC is never on our radar. No matter what anyone else thinks. Mine has developed into many maladies. Allergic to Gluten and many drugs that may could help me. Conventional Dr will not listen when I tell them I cannot take. I am to see an Immunologist in a few weeks. My org Dr was Immune specialist when I first became sick. He then went into Aides research full time. The immune Globulin shots helped greatly. Then Bayer sold out to a company in NC. It became generic and did not work for anyone that I know of. We have few resources here in Atlanta. CDC never on board really to me. Now it is the Corona virus. Unless you are dying it is not important enough. We are still trying to prove we are SICK????? Sounds phony when you tell someone this-but most of the people I know in this area feel the same way.

    Judith you are right on. I am on a new Probiotic as of this week. Usually I get to 6-7 days and get sicker with one. I also eat healthy as I know when I have strayed. Is there a special brand of the Apple Cider Vinegar that you take ? How much to start with? I know I was around many Toxins as I am a Dental Hygienist and worked with and around Mercury with No gloves at that time-or Masks. Thank you for a great , Positive Post.
