Laurel-- I so MUCH can relate to your experience! I too travelled the "new age" road of mind over matter for many years back in the 1980's, until I smacked into the dead end wall of total immune depletion/adrenal exhaustion. I am now on 32 years of CFS. I have seen 125 practitioners of every ilk imaginable. Everything from the straight western MD's to the most outrageous new age healers. More than half were either WORTHLESS or DETRIMENTAL. Most of the rest were a waste of time, money and energy. So I too have been very skeptical about the Gupta program and will have to hear of many many stories of amazing recovery, before I go lunging after another new age pie in the sky.
