Don't expect to see a list of supplements or pills. This site appears to be mostly about self-management. But keep in mind, Lapp and Campbell have great reputations.

Dr. Lapp's Message


There is no panacea, no magic potion for CFS and FM, but those who have overcome this illness invariably report that the techniques we will teach you helped them more than any pills or potions.

I know that youre looking for some treatment you can take tonight and tomorrow youll wake up refreshed and renewed. Ive got to be honest with you. Ive been treating people with CFS/FM for over 25 years and there is no magic.

I have polled those people who have overcome this illness and invariably they report that the techniques that Dr. Campbell and I will teach you on this website helped them more than any pills or potions.

What youll find here is the combination of the Stepwise Approach I developed many years ago with Dr. Paul Cheney and the tools taught in Dr. Campbells classes. This is the same integrated approach I now use with my patients. We have found that with encouragement, lifestyle changes, and targeted medications, more than 80% of people we treat can improve significantly.

Let me be clear about your part. Your doctor can help you cope with CFS/FM, but your success in regaining control will likely depend more on what you do than on anything a doctor does for you.

Medical treatments can help alleviate the symptoms of CFS/FM and further reduce suffering by treating other medical problems, but the key to recovery in CFS/FM is acceptance of the illness and adaptation to it by means of lifestyle changes.

If you adopt what we teach you on this website --which will require discipline, courage and lots of patience-- you can overcome the CFS/FM dragon. You can regain control, instead of your condition controlling you!

Dr Lapp/Dr Black helped me mangage my ME/CFS as well as could be done, I think. I have a great deal of respect for both of them. They probably slowed my descent into further illness. I didn't start getting better until I got Valcyte from Dr Lerner, though.

So if you're looking for a way to get more control over your life with ME/CFS, this info is likely to be very valuable, based on my experience. :)

I have to say though, that I got far more out of 8+ months of Valcyte than a couple of years of management. That said, I think the management techniques and sleep meds I got from Drs Lapp/Black have probably contributed substantially to how well Valcyte has worked for me. I imagine it takes both to make any big dents in this illness.

Thanks for the link Andrew. This kind of simple and essential information from a veteran ME/CFS doc is a great resource, especially to new people. If I had found something like that (and adhered to it) 16 years ago, I would most likely not be sick today.
