Paul Cheney lecture - March 22, 2013

Here is the first part of a Paul Cheney lecture given in North Carolina on March 22, 2013. It is entitled "Compassionate Use Treatment of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome using both chemical and probiotic (MAF 314) forms of GcMAF".

The lecture was given at the Forsyth Center Maya Angelou Center for Women's Heatlth and Wellness in Winston Salem, NC. It was sponsored by the Winston Salem Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia and Lyme disease support group.

The lecture was free to the public.

Teresa Simmons provides this title of one of the lectures: "Chronic Fatigue Syndrome as a cellular energy disorder related to poor redox buffering followed by progressive complications arising from a low cardiac energy system related to energy-linked cardiac diastolic dysfunction". The title itself gives a clue of what the viewer will engage in these videos.

Dr. Cheney has evolving and innovative treatments and this lecture will present his latest ideas. Thanks to Teresa Simmons for this video presentation of this important lecture.

Dr. Cheney gives public presentations every few years, encapsulating his unique treatment ideas and protocols. His lectures are long, usually three hours, and complex. They invite repeated viewing as they encompass so much information and presented in his inimitable manner.

Great progress is being made in the availability of research and treatment ideas in these complicated illnesses. I saw the 2009 lecture of Dr. Cheney in VA, which was only available to the wider audience on a DVD at a significant cost. Times are changing and now others worldwide have access to Dr. Cheney's latest thinking. Maybe other clinicians will view this and connect the dots - adding in and  testing out some of Dr. Cheney's ideas. And maybe some ideas will flow the other way, from the outside into Dr. Cheney's brain, made possible by the information disseminated in this lecture video.

The second and third part are here.


  1. It was something I will never forget.
    As Dr Cheney said, "You couldn't miss something like THIS!"


  2. The bit about chemical GcMAF starts in the second video at 35 minutes.

    Thanks for posting these videos - very interesting.

  3. Thank you for posting these videos, CFS Patient Advocate.


  4. On Video #2 (at about 26:00), in a discussion about Dr. Ritchie Shoemaker's new paper on VIP, Dr. Cheney states:

    >This is Dr. Shoemaker’s paper, which is going to be an important one. He just published it this week actually, using nasal VIP on 20 patients who had what he calls Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome related to Water Damaged Buildings, because he’s a mold expert. By the way, there is no clinical difference between CIRS due to water damaged buildings and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. We trade patients. I get his patients that he can’t seem to fix with mold, and he gets my patients that I can’t seem to fix because maybe they have mold. So we keep trading patients, and we can’t tell the difference between them.

    Here is that VIP paper by Shoemaker:


    1. Note that the 'VIP' paper is published on Shoemaker's own website. In fact none of his work has been peer-reviewed.

      His hypothesis that 24% of the population has a 'dreaded' mold gene has also been called into question on many sites.

  5. In the event that anyone finds them helpful, here are some of my own notes about this video series (accessible to anyone with a Facebook account):


  6. Lori "rodeocowgirl131", of the Leroy Tourettes cohort, pointed out that her heart palpitations changed when she switched arms for the PICC line.

    I couldn't help but wonder if she has a PFO?
