I may need my amygdala rewired or at the very least a lavender oil footbath but looking at the study I notice two things .
1 We know from previous studies that approximately 60 to 80 % of ME/CFIDS patients show varying degrees of improvement no matter how they are treated beginning at 18
to 29 months after onset. 20 to 40% do not improve.
We also know that it takes a minimum of 6 months to get a diagnosis of ME/CFIDS.
The study followed the patients for 6 and 12 months.
Therefore if any of these patients were within 2 years of onset the results are absolutely meaningless because we would expect about 60% to show improvement and that is
exactly what the study showed. While 40 % showed no improvement or actually got worse!!!!
2 The study was conducted by psychotherapists who have a huge personal interest in validating CBT ( what ever that is ) .
A more appropriate control group would have been a group of patients who thought they were meeting with a trained psychotherapist but in reality met with smuck who
encouraged them to think positively and relax when they felt their neck, teeth or butt cheeks clinching.
