Alexander Khoruts, M.D.

I first read about Alexander Khoruts and his work a good number of years ago.  He is right here in Minnesota at the University of Minnesota. He is a world leader in fecal transplantation and it is exciting to have him working so close by to where I live in Minnesota. Minnesota is not known to be a state that is aware of or gives legitimacy to ME/CFS (an understatement), so the possibility that a treatment for ME/CFS might emerge here is welcome news.

Here is an article on Dr. Alexander Khoruts, from the Guardian. As usual, the comments are interesting and informative.

Jessica's Story - Severe ME

Here is a video of Jessica, a young woman with Severe Myalgic Encephalomyelitis. Jessica has been bedbound for seven years. The video is entitled "Seven Years in the Making", and depicts the realization of her Birthday Wish.

Here is another film on Jessica entitled "The World of One Room". These powerful films highlight Myalgic Encephalomyelitis at its most fundamental core and we must thank Jessica for giving us this extraordinary view into her world. These videos are important.
