Bedbound, She Changed The World

Bedbound, She Changed The World

Florence Nightingale may have had ME/CFS

You're not alone. 

After developing Crimean fever, Florence Nightingale remained bedbound the rest of her life.

Although myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) and chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) were not defined in her lifetime, many medical historians believe she developed ME/CFS.

Despite being bed-bound, Nightingale continued to work on advancing the nursing profession and lobbying for regulatory changes to hospitals.

She met with government officials in her home and wrote thousands of letters to promote nursing reform. 

Nightingale was the first woman to receive the Order of Merit, Britain's highest civilian decoration.

Nightingale's birthday, May 12th, was chosen as International Awareness Day for Chronic Immunological and Neurological Diseases.

Now, CFS Research Is Making Leaps Forward

The most recent study of Oxaloacetate CFS (AEO) by Springer Nature's Journal of Translational Medicine showed a 33% reduction in fatigue for CFS patients and a 47% reduction for Long COVID patients. 

We're eager to announce the results of a more robust, comprehensive, placebo-controlled study that is still ongoing. 

Make sure to keep an eye out for that exciting news from us soon. 

From our entire Oxaloacetate CFS team, we wish you inspiration, healing and peace.
