I'm normally opposed to using singular events to condemn a treatment/understanding of CFS, but the Lightning Process is such transparent dishonest quackery that I'm happy to make an exception here. No-one should be told that they can make themselves better, unless there is clear evidence that this is the case for that particular individual. Anything else is immoral and abusive.
Agree completely, Esther. How this poisonous pseudo-scientific drivel managed to be taken seriously enough to get substantial funding for a formal trial just blows my mind every time I try to think about it.
This illustrates how completely the profit motive can warp someone's judgment. Any reputable therapist would stop treating people if their treatment was harming some patients or even triggering suicide attempts. I guess those parents learned why scientific evidence of efficacy of treatments is important... we all want to believe sincere people making strong claims are right. People need to learn to filter claims based on evidence and not the charisma of the claimant.
