In the video below at 38m18secs Dr Lapp claims that two of his bedbound patients have gone on to be elite athletes, one at the Olympics and remarkably one Tour de France winner. I've watched the entire video, Dr Lapp seems like a nice guy who has vast experience in treating ME/CFS patients but to go from being bed bound to competing as an elite athlete, this seems almost impossible? I've read 3 examples in the past of patients who have recovered quite considerably by measuring heart rate and doing stuff like 3 minutes activity followed by 3 minutes rest until they could slowly do more: 1.) https://www.peakendurancesport.com/...injuries-overcoming-chronic-fatigue-syndrome/ 2.) https://www.healthrising.org/blog/2...able-chronic-fatigue-syndrome-recovery-story/ 3.) http://www.recoveryfromcfs.org/chapter11.htm From a treatment perspective this seems like a slightly more scientific version of graded exercise, e.g using a HR monitor and being super careful to avoid crashes. It's nothing new as such, I just wondered what people thought about it seeing as the video is quite recent.
