Hi All, I've been sitting here doing a clay foot bath for the past half hour or so, enjoying reading a blog (entitled Fibro Friends) I had not run across before. It's written by Darden Burns (online biography), who details her exhaustive search for solutions for her own CFS since 1973. Her online biography will give you an idea of her own orientation toward health recovery over the years. I found her to be a very good writer. Not only is her writing easy to follow and understand, but she comes across as very respectful and open-minded about the uniqueness of each individual PWC's health situation. She has a number of links to some very interesting topic on her site, including one which describes a therapy which brought her significant improvement starting in 2007, a therapy called Oral Systemic Balance. I did a quick search on the board here, and noticed this has not been discussed at any time. So thought I would start a new thread to introduce others to this therapy. I know so little about it at this time, but Darden has an e-mail link on her biography page by which she can be contacted. I'll probably contact her myself after I review her website a bit more. My initial take is that she is not only extremely knowledgeable, but quite insightful as well. Best, Wayne ......................................... Part of Darden Burns' Online Biography Darden became ill with a chronic undiagnosed health disorder in the fall of 1973. Her symptoms have included extreme fatigue, headaches, eyestrain, insomnia, adrenal exhaustion, food and drug sensitivities and beginning in 2001 muscle pain and dysfunction (fibromyalgia). She has aggressively pursued numerous therapies including biofeedback, herbs & nutritional supplements, acupuncture (Classical Five Element, Japanese & Chinese styles), Feldenkrais training, cranial sacral work, rolfing, chiropractic care, NAET, neurobiofeedback, hyperbaric oxygen, jaw cavitation surgery, Wilson's Thryoid Syndrome, Relaxin hormone therapy, EECP and detoxification therapies and has worked with some of the most outstanding practitioners in the alternative health field. She was a patient of Dr. Paul Whitcomb from April to July of 2007. She started Oral Systemic Balance treatments with Dr. Farrand Robson in September 2007 and since that time has been on a steady healing path.
