         Exercise & ME/CFS: Post VO2 Max Testing Consult
"Brilliant." was the first comment posted on this second in the series on Exercise & ME/CFS. It focuses on the application of the VO2 Max testing results in the development of an exercise program for those afflicted with ME/CFS. One which will not over tax the body and result in a crash.

Dr Nancy Klimas explains the basic elements of the testing. Physiologist, Connie Sol conducts the post-testing consult and explains the design of a patient-specific exercise program.
The first video in the series "Exercise & ME/CFS: VO2 Max Testing Procedure" has garnered rave reviews from around the world
To view the videos go to: The Exercise Group.

As of July 29th, the Whittemore Peterson Institute ranks 6th overall and 1st within its region with 45,453 votes. They are currently 74,447 votes behind the leader and it would seem unlikely at this point that they can overcome that lead and win the first prize of $250,00. They are, however, well ahead of the second place organization and seem assured of winning the $100,000 regional award.
Currently, The National ME/FM Action Network ranks 3rd within its region with 6,908 votes. The first place award of $100,000 in their region appears attainable if they get the full, daily support of those afflicted with ME/CFS.

       Please help us to help you.
We can only continue producing the ME-CFSCommunity and its services and videos including our Expert Assistance series with your financial support. A contribution of just $5 from you would be gratefully appreciated and allow us to continue our efforts to help you cope with this dreaded affliction.

For more than 29-years the Kitchen Table Gang Trust has been helping veterans and our troops deployed overseas. Please visit us at
The Kitchen Table Gang Trust is a rag-tag bunch of military types trying to make life a little more pleasant for our hospitalized veterans at VA Hospitals throughout the United States and our soldiers & Marines deployed overseas in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Kitchen Table Gang's award winning weekly newsletter provides some excellent information on your pay and health benefits -in fact it's a really great resource for you!
These guys are doing some wonderful things for our veterans and our troops overseas, and it all started with a poker game. (They donated a portion of the pot to help veterans and our active-duty troops – are you doing anything that cool with your Texas Hold ‘Em obsession, hmm?) These great guys will tell you all about it on their site, and they’ve got lots of suggestions on how you can express your gratitude to our brave men and women deployed overseas. Who knows, they might even be able to help you!
Thank you very much!
Charlie Taliaferro, Director

I have taken this test and the results are great. After a few months I was able to self monitor my pulse and control a lot of undesired stresses and pain.
