Welcome to our Live Chat Event with Dr. Martin L. Pall, PhD, a Professor of Biochemistry and Basic Medical Sciences at Washington State University, and author of the acclaimed new book Explaining "Unexplained Illnesses." (http://astore.amazon.com/prohealth-20/detail/078902389X/104-0633642-5692763)*

Dr. Pall has concluded that a single complex biochemical cycle which elevates levels of potent oxidants in the body – the nitric oxide/peroxynitrite cycle (NO/ONOO- cycle) – is responsible for causing CFS, FM, MCS, PTSD, and other chronic diseases. He believes this vicious cycle is initiated by a range of short-term stressors including viral and bacterial infections, toxic chemicals, physical trauma, and severe psychological stress. And a well-chosen regimen of antioxidants and other agents may help the body down-regulate that cycle. (For an expanded explanation of these concepts, click here (http://www.immunesupport.com/library/showarticle.cfm/id/8071). And for details of Dr. Pall's antioxidant protocol, click here (http://www.immunesupport.com/library/showarticle.cfm?id=8075).)
Importantly, as Dr. Pall cautions, “I am a PhD, not an MD, and none of this information should be viewed as medical advice. The supplements included in the antioxidant support regimen I have designed are not meant or sold as a treatment or cure for any disease.”

Q: Dr. Pall, do you or someone close to you have one of these illnesses? Dr. Pall: I had Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, but unlike most such people, I had a full recovery over a period of about a year and a half. I consider myself cured and have had no relapses over the past 8 years.
