Professor Paul Cheney: why exercise in CFS is counter-productive

By CFS Facts:

In 1999 Professor Paul Cheney, one of the pioneers of CFS research, went on record as stating: “The most important thing about exercise is ****not to have [patients with CFS] do aerobic exercise*****. I believe that even progressive aerobic exercise is counter-productive.

If you have a defect in mitochondrial function and you push the mitochondria by exercise, you kill the DNA” (Lecture given in Orlando, Florida at the International Congress of Bioenergetic Medicine, 5th-7th February 1999).
