Why is Oxygen Important in ME / CFS?

Despite an enormous amount of research (some would say not enough…) over recent years into Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME, also known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, CFS), there’s currently no consensus of opinion about the exact or specific cause of this complex and often debilitating condition. However, there is increasing evidence that low oxygen levels in the body and brain may be a significant feature of ME / CFS and that ‘oxygen deprivation’ at a cellular level, caused by accelerated oxidative injury (damage to cells by free radicals), acidic conditions and other factors, may be a consistent key phenomenon which offers a great start for ME / CFS management and movement towards recovery.
