Gut Dysbiosis Modulates Significant CFS Symptoms
A recent publication from both Kenny DeMeirleir and Australian investigators has important implications regarding the management of gut dysbiosis. The bottom line is that they showed increased bacterial overgrowth in the GI tract in CFS that produces bacterial derived D-Lactate that is likely responsible for significant cognitive problems, especially memory. There is also a high likelihood of increased H2S associated with this D-Lactate which will cause even more weakness and fatigue and put you in bed as well as disrupt sleep.
The gut modification program (GMP) we have emphasized along with elimination of fructose and fruit/sweets is now even more important. While this may be a dominant problem in some, especially the sickest, the GMP alone seems to be inadequate for a cure and sometimes does little to help. My recommendations are to follow the GMP as directed and will now be even more emphasized along with genetic de-corruption approaches such as CSF’s and stem cells as well as Artesunate which may be hitting viruses that are at the core of CFS as well as redox instability problems. Glucose tabs will not typically reach the intestines and are absorbed in the stomach but I would spit it out anyway after chewing it for pre-treatment of CSF’s. Disaccharides such as sucrose (common table sugar) and lactose (milk sugar) as well as the monosaccharide fructose are much more of a problem as well as some more difficult to digest starches (bread and soluble fiber). These can get into the intestines and down to the colon where they are substrate for the production of D-Lactate and H2S. The aggressive use of digestive enzymes or eating raw food with intact enzymes will help as well. You want your food digested high in the gut, especially carbohydrates.
