Terrible News: Rich Van Konynenburg has died

  [ 9 votes ]   [ 2 Comments ] • September 26, 2012

Sep 26, 2012: We are profoundly saddened to share the news that Rich Van Konynenburg (Rich VanK) has died. Developer and constant refiner of the methylation protocol, he has also been a great, beloved friend and unfailing help to people with ME/CFS/FM/MCS, Lyme and autism for many years. Out of the goodness of his heart. Truly, we will not see his like again.

Following is a message to the patient community from Rich’s wife, Diana.


Rich died early this morning. It appears that he suffered a massive heart attack in his sleep. He did not have a history of heart disease, so this was sudden and quite unexpected. It doesn't seem possible to me that Rich is gone. I am at a loss to express how profoundly I will miss him (I already do!).

I am trying to figure out how to begin notifying everyone who will want to know. Please feel free to repost this message on any forum or group where people who interacted with Rich will want to know of his passing.

A Great Loss

Dr. Van Konyenburg tirelessly and with great enthusiasm worked to uncover the cause of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome / Myalgic Encephalomyelitis and communicated constantly with those afflicted. I truly hope his research will be continued by others. He will be missed by a great number of people including myself.
