    Move along people, no news here, just the "honest" people at LP only showing positive stories from customers. Of course this does beg the question: Since their methods work well, why would they need to censor the results?

    I wouldn't have thought anyone claims that "honesty" is a part of the Lightning Process.

    Some people say it has helped them, and I'm pleased for them, but it's still dishonest quackery.

    I've had all my posts about LP on the videos promoting it removed from youtube


    From the publication Private Eye, October 2009:

    "ME sufferers were stunned recently to receive threatening letters when they posted their views on the "Lightening Process", a programme that allegedly produces "amazing results" for people not only with ME but "anxiety, panic attack, over-eating, low self-esteem and guilt" too. When sufferers started reporting they had paid 600 for a course that did not work for the, they received warning of defamation proceedings if they did not recant."

    (October 2009, issue 1248, p10, about halfway down the "Legal News" section)

    I don't recognise what he is talking about as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis - does anyone else. Have they done a long term study of those treated one wonders too.

    There was suppose to be a study by Esther Crawly on children in the UK. I was pretty shocked about this. I'm not sure if the study was actually carried out, since the Lightening Process has not been shown to work.

    Unfortunately, people are paying lots of money for this sham treatment. I have some info. in my files I will try to post later.

    The study is being done now; all UK M.E. charities except Action for ME and Action for Young ME have condemned it as unethical - the two mentioned are supporting it.
