The Oxygen Model of Systemic-Exertion-Intolerance Disease (SEID) and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Majid Ali, M.D. Simply stated, my Oxygen Model of SEID and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome states that persistent chronic fatigue results from disturbed oxygen functions and predicts that all oxystatic therapies effectively administered will relieve chronic fatigue symptoms and eventually restore health. I coined the term oxystatic therapy for any therapy that restores oxygen functions. In scientific terms, the Oxygen Model

The Oxygen Model of Fibromyalgia

  Majid Ali, M.D. My Oxygen Model of Fibromyalgia is an extension of my Oxygen Model of Health and Disease. It is a unifying model that explains all aspects of fibromyalgia—causes, clinical course, consequences, and control—on the basis of disturbed oxygen function. The most important among these compromised and/or blocked functions are: (1) oxygen signaling; (2) oxygen’s ATP energy generation;

Reversing Fibromyalgia—A Mitochondrial Disorder In Which Cells Cannot Breathe

  Majid Ali, M.D. Reversing Fibromyalgia—A Mitochondrial Disorder In Which Cells Cannot Breathe Fibromyalgia, at its roots, is an oxygen problem. The best laboratory test to prove this is to test for mitochondrial function. Mitochondria are driven and regulated by oxygen. This is what I learned in 1958 at King Edward Medical College, Lahore, Pakistan. To fully understand these simple
