    I think we want to see lab tests showing values before and after treatment to have evidence of abnormalities becoming normalized.

    P.S. For perspective, some of the best ME/CFS clinicians and researcher have been studying the pathogenesis of this disease for 18 years or more and still only partly understand it. If you get patients who have been diagnosed through the accepted criteria, such in the International Criteria, they will most likely have lab tests showing abnormalities and many are getting tested periodically to monitor their condition. So, take patients who meet the established criteria, and compare tests before and after treatment...and please post it here!

    Cause many of us (hundreds) have spent the last 15 years or so trying to study that and yet still dont have the answers. Of cause that doesnt make it impossible that youve found an answer but does make it unlikely What do you think of Dr Cheney's thoughts of progression of ME.. that is how mine has progressed and now my heart is being affected by it..im in his last progression stages.

    Im curious about those 8? you helped. Can you share more about them? Were you able to do more after your treatments and what abnormalities were their tests showing before you started treating them? and did those test abnormalities go away? Lots of us, myself included.. have MANY abnormalities showing up. Does your treatment fix orthostatic tachycardia Sydrome and orthostatic hypertension?? and the other autonomic issues common in ME? (that is currently my worst ME/CFS symptom) etc(so one starts showing a normal result in tests).

    Did your patients have neurological signs such as the abnormalities which show up in many ME patients on EEGs and postive rombergs tests? Did these go away after your treatments? This is what I think most of us are wondering.. what patient group are you dealing with.. those who just may have depression or those who are just "fatigued" which is often mistaken for CFS. Are you dealing and treating those who have genuine abnormalities due to ME?

    If the answer is no (I are truely interested in hearing your answer so hoping you reply back) that you havent had many ME/CFS patients come to you who have abnormalities on test results it may be cause the ones who do arent usually attracted to hypnotherapy.. hence you may more so be seeing just one subgroup of ME/CFS which may not be a good representation of the rest.
