Ken is an ME/CFS who has recovered from chronic fatigue syndrome several times. He's concluded that gut issues played a key role in his recovery and he's come up with a model that he believes may help those with more severe ME/CFS
A good model is an construction that agrees with most of the known facts and have predictive power.
The model provides a filter thru which various probiotics, supplements, antibiotics etc may be filtered. The yield is a list of items that are candidates worth trying.
As a FYI, I had a conversation with a bed-ridden, almost ready to be moved into a care facility person yesterday, and suggestion (to always be discussed with a very knowledgable health professional before starting was):
The following is my suggestion for starting with a person with severe CFS who have to self-nurse themselves.
Teas (Easier than pills) -- Tea bag or loose tea are listed below. These are antimicrobials against the species usually high in CFS.
- Three cups a day of neem tea [ongoing]
- Three cups a day of tulsi tea [ongoing]
- 15000 IU of vitamin D3/day -- high levels in the normal range have reduced symptoms. It will take a long time to get your level up to that level. [ongoing]
- reservatol (anti-inflammatory) http://www.amazon.com/Doctors-Best-...UTF8&qid=1445118313&sr=8-12&keywords=Knotweed [ongoing]
