One thing I'm discovering is that those of us with chronic infections and illnesses (CFS/FMS, anyone?) have issues with METHYLATING! Meaning, we don't produce enough glutathione, cysteine, taurine, methionine, B12, B's etc (the sulfur-based amino acids and methyl-donating compounds). Methylation is vital for immune function, HCl production, detoxification, muscle repair (anyone else here experiencing cachexia, despite eating loads of protein?), tissue repair, enzyme production, synthesizing protein, emotional regulation...and just about every single vital process in the body. When we have defective methylating systems, we are prone to chronic infections, illnesses, metals, etc...and our body starts to break down.
Also, info on enterovirus and CFS/FMS:
More on non-polio entervirus. Also causes CFS/FMS, which I have been struggling with for years. I think I might have contracted this in 2008, for I got sick with flu-like illnesses in succession over the course of a 4 month period. Do u think this might be another infection I have?
