This blog is about one person's experience searching through various combinations of natural medicine and cognitive techniques to find solutions to the devastating ME/CFS (or CFIDS) illness complex, including Lyme Disease. I have received a lot of requests for reports on what I have learned while successfully treating my own case. If you are reading this because ME/CFS and/or Chronic Lyme Disease has taken over your life, I hope you will find some insights here.

This blog is an attempt to share what I am learning about ME/CFS and Lyme Disease. Therefore my purpose is informational and educational. I am in no way diagnosing or treating any illness, nor prescribing any particular therapy (my Disclaimer). If you have questions, please send me an email.

More Introduction

Honestly, I wish some other topic would be so important that I would write a blog about it, maybe my favorite music or how I love good literature. Sadly this disease has taken over my life to a large extent. But fortunately I have had some successes, and mostly stopped the progression of the illness. In fact I have experienced some improvements, I was partly bedridden for several years, but now have recovered limited mobility and some functional improvements.

This ME/CFS-Lyme blog begins in December, 2004, when I experienced my first dramatic reversal in over four years when I started the Salt/C protocol. I also discuss a few ideas about what might be causing ME/CFS and Lyme. In late 2005 I experienced more improvement, possibly from the continuing Salt/C, or some ongoing holistic work. But I also had some setbacks, and stopped salt/c. In 2006 I started having great success with EMF blocking. In 2008 I began using a self-talk process to address adrenal-amygdala looping that I believe is caused by the presence of neurotoxins. That lasted for a few years. I started using rehydration therapy in about 2010, and things have been stable since then. I finally updated the blog in 2019.

To get the full content of the blog you must just start with the older posts and read them all. Since I do not post often, that is not as difficult as it may sound.

Part of the purpose of the blog is to give hope to others, and to share what I have learned and am still learning, in my quest for the solution protocol to ME/CFS and related conditions, including Chronic Lyme Disease. I explore a wide range of health issues, but try to stick to the goal of finding an effective treatment plan for this disease.

Enjoying your blog. Will you be adding an RSS feed? It would be easier to keep track of your posts.

Hi Kurt, I suffer from CFIDS/FMS and have for over 15 years. I wanted to suggest Dr. Cheney for information on CFIDS as he recently published a journal about the three (3) Phases of CFIDS. Here are a few links to the article and his website.

BTW, he has been following us and doing research since the inception of the first outbreak about approximately 20+ years ago in Incline Village.

I hope that helps. You can find me on my blog, An Unlikely Perspective 2 (political) @

Keep up the good work!

Dr. Cheney has stumbled on an incredible discovery and it explains why all systems in the body of a CFIDS/CFS patient are going awry.

They think the heart is the culprit.

Here is his 3 hour video. So worth watching!!
