Jim K 3 May 2009 10:09 pm For those interested, I For those interested, I have no opinion on this particular kind of nervous system response training. Clearly, in my observations and understanding of the research, chronic stress reaction (sympathetic nervous system dysregulation) is linked with CFS, and we know that cortisol encourages infection. On the other hand, we also know that chronic infections generate chronic activation of the sympathetic nervous system and a dysregulation of the HPA (hypothalamic-pituitary-axis), the brain's stress response network. So cause and effect are wonderfully confused here. There is no question in my mind that lowering chronic stress responses in the body will aid most people in fighting chronic infections, hence this forum category. That said, it could be that Chris's wondrous response to Gupta's method is because stress response, not infection, was the main factor in Chris's illness and his pursuit of infection treatments was the wrong direction. There is no way to know from an anecdotal report. At any rate, I'm always interested to hear of people's experience with adjuncts like this, especially for those who are on a CAP for Cpn and find something like this makes a difference in thier treatment. Chris- I hope you'll forgive me for moving this post to the forum rather than your blog. I'm not sure it was the right decision, but it is done.
