Dr John Chia reviewing his enterovirus research as it playing a role in ME/CFS. Fact: Enterovirus is a gastrointestinal virus. Most ME/CFS have gastrotintestinal problems.
Enterovirus can infect the nerves surrounding the stomach and intestines, travel up the vagus nerve and infect the brainstem.
Brainstem is responsible for immune regulation, balance, heart rate, blood pressure, autonomic functions, etc. His research supports a more common viral infection that can lead up to CFS and easily explains clusters and child cases of CFS.
