    PS Which currently puts it in 14th place, needs to stay in top 20 in order to stay in running for drawing.

    I’ve done a little looking into the Waterloo Wellington Myalgic Encephalomyelitis Association. Unfortunately there is not much on the Karma website.

    Ken Nightengale, their Karma ambassador recovered from “ME/CFS” by having his gall bladder removed, doing various cleanses, and changing his diet.

    The WWMEA website is mostly links to already existing information. I did not have time to read their links for Coping Strategies, so don’t know if CBT/GET are in there. The Therapies & Treatments page has links for:
    Dr. Teitelbaum
    Dr. Jay Godstein
    Dr. Cheney
    The CDC
    Dr. Michael Midgley
    Some links on mercury dental amalgams
    Some links on environmental factors

    The services they provide are:
    Self help group
    telephone support to members
    public education
    lending library for members

    Their description of ME includes:
    Invisible chronic illness
    Most sufferers are so ill that they are house-bound.
    Cause: No one knows. It usually starts with an infection.

    "Is There A Cure for M.E.?

    • Not really.
    • The universal remedy is REST, and lots of it.
    • Symptoms may be treatable, but the illness as a whole is not treatable.
    • M.E. sufferers must learn what there limits are, and try to live as comfortably as possible within these limits. Unfortunately, for many M.E. sufferers, their limits are so severe that it's impossible for them to live comfortably.
    • Useful treatments may include:
    • Dietary modifications.
    • Parasite Cleanse.
    • Colon/Liver/Kidney Cleanse & Detoxicification.
    • Lifestyle modifications.
    • Identifying and eliminating allergies, sensitivities or intolerances to foods and chemicals.
    • Prescription medications.
    • Non-prescription remedies.
    • Massage therapy.
    • Meditation or relaxation exercises."
    I wish I knew what they would do with the money if they won. Maybe they will update their website. All of those doctors have been around for a while. The newer, more cutting edge ones are missing.

    Overall, I think they pass the "smell test" and am going to be voting for them.

    647. The votes are going up faster than they were a few days ago. I think we will keep them from dropping out of the top 20.

    Seems to exist across types of entries and registrations contain a spam (or clickjacking, I didn't click it) link.
