Undenatured Whey

Intracelluar glutathione deficiency may be the primary culprit in chronic fatigue syndrome and multiple chemical sensitivity. (See also Detoxification Metabolism: Glutathione.)

Undenatured whey, an extract of raw milk created in a low temperature process, provides the precursor nutrients that enable the body to produce its own glutathione within its cells.


Dr. Paul Cheney, MD

Dr.Paul Cheney, MD has used undenatured whey to treat chronic fatigue syndrome and chemical sensitivities.

Caution: Although Dr. Cheney is quoted as starting patients on two packs per day, CFS and MCS patients should get advice on beginning at a much lower level and increasing slowly. These patients will have issues of mobilized toxins.

Note: Dr. Cheney has since changed his thinking on undenatured whey, believing it can be harmful to CFS patients.
