I have been looking for sound information on mind-body connection and ME/CFS, particularly its immunological aspects I was under severe stress, for instance, when I got the allegedly viral trigger. Other people was under the same stress and did not developed ME/CFS. I may assume that the virus I got at this time was transmited to beloved ones...they did not developed ME/CFS either. My most severe crashes have been preceded by periods of stress. I was always certain it was not 'all in my mind' but... Some Drs. say meditation and positive attitude may help with CFS symptoms, some say that these might even help in Th2 to Th1 modulation Some information below supports this connection as shaping the scenario for ME/CFS... http://www.bullyonline.org/stress/health.htm http://www.livescience.com/19567-monkey-social-status-genes.html Rest & Pacing, diet, supplements, natural anti-virals and immunomodulators have helped me a lot.....but is the physiological/biological/functional approach all that we need for immune restoration? This is not an invitation for sellers of psycobabble but a serious question about how can we mentally help our immune system Best!
