[video=youtube;uM8Hs1nuk5I]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uM8Hs1nuk5I[/video]
Ralph Toddre presents the story of his daughter Allison, who suffers from an autism spectrum disorder, and talks about how the Whittemore Peterson Institute has helped his family. The video concludes with an overview of WPI's goals.


I find the last video the most interesting in the implications; it seems to confirm that the WPI has already started clinical trials with good results, we heard in an interview sometime ago a few weeks ago with Annette Whittemore that they have some data from a small clinical trial.

Seems like the WPI is really pushing this o_O
I just hope they are not going too far and hurting themselfs.
Was there any information about WPI allready threating ilnesses before? Seems like a big jump for medicine if that's all curable soon and has a known cause. I'm kinda starting to feel like am seeing history beeing made :D

the stories told in the videos are great...altho only dr. deckhoff and her daughter appear to have cfid's/me. the other little girl who they say has cfid's/me has symptoms that are very different from most cfid's patients i know and read abt....she has an underactive immune system while most of us have an overactive system.

....the videos do not feel modern/dynamic/catchy or up to date...sorry to be critical, but to get attention in this fast paced, media driven world, the videos should have a more modern feel. nobody asked but, i gave my 2cents : )


ooops music is from recovered me patient....now i feel bad, so i edited out my crit.

I also thought the actual voice in the voice over gave the videos a very old fashion feel and the music was way too melodramatic....the stories and videography were great; VO and music not so good....the videos do not feel modern/dynamic/catchy or up to date...sorry to be critical, but to get attention in this fast paced, media driven world, the videos should have a more modern feel. nobody asked but, i gave my 2cents : )
I totally agree on the music, over sensationalized, it bothered me too. So that makes two of us.

I thought the videos were wonderful - music and all. Different tastes - hope that it appeals to people who give money.
