Sorry for typos - voice typing this... Although I am convinced about CFS as TMS I have some queries. firstly the success of the rituximab trial in Norway this drug have been found to bring about complete recovery or partial recovery in around 66% of those who've taken it the first person who took it took the drug for cancer it was part of chemotherapy it was a coincidence that she realised that it has got rid of her CFS symptoms... the drug wipes out B lymphocytes. Another thing is the role of mitochondria. It's long been suspected mitochondria play a huge role CFS symptoms they are on a go slow. Researchers at Stanford University recently pinpointed mitochondrial dysfunction as a cause of CFS. It strikes me that the faulty mitochondria may be yet another symptom of the disease rather than the cause of the disease which would fit in with TMS Theory. I believe that diet plays a role in our health. Foods, certain substances, definitely add to the stress load on our minds and bodies. Eating a cleaner diet would seem to make sense to me. Many of the psychologically-based treatments for CFS are pretty much identical to Dr Sarno’s protocol. The Gupta programme, the Lightning Process, Mickel Therapy, etc, all seem to be derived from Mind Body syndrome teaching.
