    Could Exercise be the Cure for Chronic Fatigue?

    And then there is this irritating web site which is spreading false information of a cure for ME and fibromyalgia


    This is the site:

    This particular group of health therapists are amazing miracle workers apparently as they can cure a wide variety of diseases and conditions.............providing of course you cross their palms with silver.

    Amongst the conditions they cure are

    Now I wonder what Trading Standards would react to the above claims?

    Thanks @Countrygirl .
    The blurb on Louise Lee's site is a crib from the BS I was told at my local Pain Clinic.... A heavy emphasis of 'carrying on regardless' and of course encouraging the patient to focus on positive emotions.

    In order not to 'open the pain-gate' you are encouraged to do far more than your body can support...
    This completely mis-understands the process of Chronic pain syndrome and even in otherwise healthy patients leads to deep exhaustion and a pain flare up- it is disasterous in ME patients.

    I presume when this fails, the patient is blamed for not co-operating in the right way, or having too much resistence to change....

    At least I didn't have to pay for my dose of BS!!!!!!

    She writes:"Remember, we are unlikely to get everything we want in life, or to avoid everything that is painful, but we can learn to equip ourselves, to be able to face life's challenges head on, handle them and move forward."

    Sheesh! And she's charging £85 a session!!!!!!!

    I imagine another word for 'Virtual Gastric Band Programme' is DIET!

    Not quite, there is a subpage about how a normal gastric band would be something that you put around your stomach so it has less room which leads to you feeling satisfied with smaller portions of food. That would make dieting easier. Now, the virtual version is that she just hypnotizes you into thinking you have something like that (to make it less invasive or sth i figure). Why it still costs half a grand is... well. You know.

    Honestly! I can't believe people get suckered in by this shite.

    The only reason someone would have a "qualifications" list as long as this is because they still haven't found anything g they're good at. Apart from fleecing the gullible.

    Hm...
    tell you what, folks:

    I'll wear a kilt
    hold a hula-hoop around my middle
    then spin the hoop around ma belly, shoogling ma hips to spin it up, performing the ancient Scottish mystical ritual known as "Twirl yer Caber"


    I am quite sure that will provide enough encouragement, or fear, to motivate anyone to overcome their M.E.!
    Yup, yes indeedy! :D :whistle:

    ...as if I could even do a hula-hoop now! I'd frikkin keel over or fly out the window!
    *wee guy below looks up and shouts*
    "LOOK OUT! Fat Bastard, incoming at 12 o'clock!" :p

    I think my suggestion has more merit, at least from a "benefits of humour" perspective, than the CRAP all these kind of folks spin.
    Any other illness, they'd *get the jail* for such flimflam.

    For further entertainment you might like to view her facebook page. I note she seems to have erased some of her more interesting responses to the ME community who challenged her. I recall one of her remarks stated something to the effect that she was sorry her knowledge was too much of a challenge for us. Maybe someone can find it.

    Thanks for that, @Countrygirl, thought I would take a look to pass the time.

    Does anyone else find this early Christmas shopping advert a bit disturbing? :wide-eyed::
