ME/CFS: A disease at war with itself
We can all agree that ME/CFS is a nasty disease, particularly in its severe form, but there are abundant nasty diseases in the world. What is unique and particularly confounding about our disease is that so much controversy surrounds it, and not only surrounds it, but invades it too.

    This is an interesting new article on the Alliance for Natural Health (ANH) website:

    http://anh-europe.org/news/anh-intl...ergy-reserve-or-age-prematurely-and-die-early

    There is a lot that is directly relevant to ME, and chronic fatigue syndrome is explicitly referred to. Some is clearly not relevant, such as advice to exercise, but most of it seems good to me.

    The ANH has a lot of good stuff on its site, but I disagree with a little of its content and quite often with its manner. For example I found their piece on Angelina Jolie's mastectomy most inappropriate. I don't think that they should publicly target individuals who have been forced to make difficult, drastic decisions and go public to help other women in a similar situation, which I have no reason to doubt was her intention. In any case, if she hadn't gone public, the tabloid snooping industry would have had a field day.

    Just saying that there is a need to use the site with an open but critical mind (not so open that your brains fall out, as one wit said - can't remember who)
