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: http://simmaronresearch.com/2013/12/big-antiviral-trial-era-fibromyalgia/

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.
