    This is not new but I don't think has been highlighted much in CFS circles. I thought I would post it as CBT studies involving Gijs Bleijenberg and his team are often quoted to claim that CBT is an evidence-based therapy for CFS.

    However, compliance generally isn't measured and I'm not convinced that most patients are actually following the program which the authors claim is the way to treat CFS.

    In particular, I think the percentage of "relatively passive" CFS patients who would follow this program can't be particularly high:
    ETA: people shouldn't feel they have to read it all. It's not that exciting.
