    Actually, I wrote that article for ProHealth.  In doing the research for it, I was impressed by all of the scientific studies that were behind each of the products mentioned.  While I think any of the products would be good, personally I would lean more toward EpiCor for lyme disease and ME/CFS.  There are two reasons I say that:

     

    1.  The research showed that EpiCor significantly increased Natural Killer (NK) cell activity.  According to the following two studies, NK cells play an important roll in fighting the bacteria that causes lyme disease:

    Cellular Immune Response in Lyme Disease

     

    2.  Some experts feel that ME/CFS may be an autoimmune disease, which means that the immune system is attacking healthy cells as well as foreign invaders.  EpiCor is an immune balancer, so in addition to strengthening NK cells, it should help prevent the immune system from attacking healthy cells. 

     

    I was so impressed with the information I found when researching EpiCor, that I'm planning to try it myself.  (I have FM and ME/CFS.) 

     

    One more thing... the customer service people at ProHealth are very knowledgeable, so don't hesitate to call them anytime you have questions.
