Remember, folks, there is no clinical test for CFS/ME, so any claims of remission must be taken with grams of salt; and remission means remission, not cure. I went into remission for no reason whatsoever, and then this damn illness crept back and got even worse.
I don't want to be the person with the discouraging words but these are anecdotes, not studies.
We're stuck in a research mode and most of those trials ultimately get shot down. During the testing we PWCs latch onto the then still anecdotal
process in hopes that we'll get the benefits of the objectives of the test. We all can reflect back on the major trials, e.g. XMRV, CFS TRIALS, Ampligen,
Norwegian Cancer Correlates, etc. I dare say many of us grabbed a handful of the stuff being studied and interpolated it into our own anecdotal efforts for relief.
These self trials probably make sense on more than one level. For one, there are no proven go-to alternatives. Secondly, it's 15 years from lab to clinical. A lot of
us are getting old and the illness is progressing... . So, if some sound testor gets remission from studied rock soup, then I'll have a bowl of what s/he is having, maybe add a couple of ARV's on the side. 'Beats hell out of the palliatives outlined in the 'Physicians Guide to Treating CFS/ME', IMHO.
