Phoenix Rising: The Autonomic Nervous System Edition
Monday 15 October 2007
You can subscribe to the newsletter as well as download each issue.
The latest issue of Phoenix Rising is now available:
Here is Cort Johnson’s introduction to the issue:
Welcome to the next edition of Phoenix Rising . This edition covers an ever more interesting subject in ME/CFS research – the autonomic nervous system (ANS). Problems in this all encompassing system could impact everything from fatigue to mood to sleep. The ANS has never gotten the attention it deserves but this appears to be changing not just in ME/CFS but in other fatiguing diseases. As this issue went to ‘press’ two more studies linked ANS dysfunction to fibromyalgia. I believe its a quite exciting area of ME/CFS research.
Be sure to check out the first ME/CFS Quiz as well.
Right on the tail of this edition we’ll have a somewhat late edition of The Year in Review for 2006 plus some interviews and more.
Due to a computer breakdown this edition will only be available on the website. My apologies for not providing a pdf.
Please have patience with the appearance of the website. It is being upgraded (or sometimes downgraded) as I learn a new web design program. It is being mostly prepared using Internet 7 – it almost always looks okay on the internet seven browser but can suffer at times on other browsers. As I get better at this those problems should disappear.
Thanks for your consideration
