Rich Van Konynenburg, PhD, gave a seminar in Sweden last week explaining the Glutathione Depletion-Methylation Cycle Block hypothesis of ME/CFS (and fibromyalgia) – and the recent trial of a protocol for treating it. The result is an excellent 3-part video that can be watched free online. As Rich explains it:
I’m just back from Sweden, and the IAOMT [International Academy of Oral Medicine & Toxicology] group who invited me to speak there has already put a video of my seminar on the web. The IAOMT was originally a group of biological dentists, interested particularly in mercury toxicity, but the Swedish branch has developed to include what we would call alternative or integrative physicians as well, and their interests extend to many of the issues involving ME/CFS.

It is quite a long video, in three parts. They gave me several hours, so that I was able to go into considerable detail. I presented a basic description of ME/CFS and then discussed:
• The Glutathione Depletion-Methylation Cycle Block hypothesis,
• How it explains various aspects of ME/CFS,
• And testing, treatment, and the clinical study performed by Dr. Neil Nathan and myself.*
I hope you will find it interesting.
