Discussion in 'Fibromyalgia Main Forum' started by ladude, Nov 5, 2006.
Well the title says it all.....
It came today --- so there!!
Nicely packaged, 2 CD's for $13.00 wow.
Can't have duplicates made for that price.
Now I get to cipher what he says again and I'm still trying to comprehend and remember and do what he suggests in the last one.
altho not me, 2 people I know locally got it Friday actually;
one is a patient of Dr. Cheney's and took part in his recent research... her numbers improved but so far she doesn't feel better
- it remains to be seen if she has a delayed effect, I'm hoping she does as she is about 90% bedridden currently.
all the best,
Can anyone tell me his website? I Googled it and got hundreds of hits, but not his.
And where can one get it?
Thanks for the heads-up on this.
Have you viewed any of it yet? If so, any feedback on how you liked it?
In September of 2006, Paul Cheney, MD, PhD, presented a seminar titled "CFS: The Heart of the Matter".
A 2-disc DVD set of the seminar is available. The prices quoted below are in US dollars and include shipping. ($13 - $16 within the US; $13 - $18 to Canada; Australia and New Zealand yet to be determined; $16 - $18 all other countries.) Many thanks to Marc Iverson for underwriting a portion of the DVD cost to make them less expensive and thus available to more people.
This outstanding seminar contains important, fascinating and unique material that will eventually be published. There is an overview of CFS, an in-depth look at the cardiovascular issues in CFS; a new model of the illness, and a full update on Dr. Cheney's latest study, including the treatment protocol. In addition to the numerous topics mentioned below (taken from the jacket of the DVD case), Dr. Cheney also addresses the following: sleep issues, blood volume, candida, Chlamydia, Lyme, MCS, FM, GWS, phenotypic and genotypic changes in DNA, hyperbaric oxygen, and the use of stem cells from umbilical cord blood.
Note that while there is a section on treatment that is approx 30 minutes long, specific treatments are also mentioned in earlier sections and in the final Q&A . There is more treatment information in this seminar than in any previous one! Exciting, effective treatment with objectively demonstrated benefits.
The following is an outline with some of the topics listed. It is by no means exhaustive. Timecodes are given for the beginning of each section, making it easy to locate particular subjects and also giving an indication of how much time was devoted to each topic.

Thanks, Victoria. The index of info looks great.
When you refer to the person in your area who is on Cheney's protocol who is not feeling better, but whose "numbers are better," what are you referring to?
I haven't even watched the DVD, and everytime she's explained what they're looking at test-wise, I go cross-eyed... no way can I remember all/any of it.
I will be seeing her next week at our meeting however, and try to actually take notes if this hasn't been answered by then...
I just know that as far as whatever it is Dr. Cheney's measuring in all the test participants, that is what she improved on across the board.
Hopefully the tape will explain all that? I'm not sure if Carol Sieverling has published something about this yet either, she's pretty good at explaining what Cheney's saying and doing and seems to act as sort of a 'mouthpiece' for him unofficially.
PS - I can also tell you that Dr. Cheney told her and others who didn't physically do better quickly to give it time, that the body will catch up probably; he based that on his experience with his heart transplant. Even tho he was getting more blood pumped comparatively to his old heart, etc., it took him a full year to recover.

from 2005 that at least explains the basis of his theories:
The Heart of the Matter:
Dr. Cheney on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome & Cardiac Issues
By Carol Sieverling
I've read "The Heart of the Matter," but haven't kept up with Cheney's theories this year. I'll have to look into it. I'm also wondering what treatments he's using with his patients.
blenderized pig tissue because it is the 'signaling factor' that is important...
and very small injections of HGH (human growth factor)...
plus I know she does B12/mag injections anyway.
Watched an hour or more then began to fast-forward, lots and lots of charts, and semi frequent multi syllabic words.
I was not up to it mentally and it is involved, as was the first video. Don’t get me wrong; I think it is full of useful and excellent material. I just need to watch it in segments. It is similar in style and format to the first video but more new information.
I think it is close to 3 hours like the first one and it is not easy reading, but our brains need exercise too.
A lot of information to absorb, but well worth the time and effort.
He still takes patients if anyone is interested. I’d say he's well worth the dough.
Ummmm ……blenderized pig tissue…… sorry I could not resist. Is it available at the local market?
probably not fresh enough?!?!?......... also can't remember if it's the heart tx or what exactly... not to mention, you wouldn't wanna INJECT it unless you knew it was sterile... ewwwwww!
