Re your article on ME (vol 14 no 12), I contracted the illness after an afternoon spent with two children who had just had their polio vaccine. Others can also relate their illness to this vaccine.
Re ME/CFS (WDDTY vol 14 no 12), the WHO categorises ‘chronic fatigue’ states as ‘Mental Health Problems and Behavioural Disorders’ under F48.0 whereas ME (and CFS) are classified as ‘Neurological Disorders’ under G93.3.
Re ‘the best alternative treatment for ME or chronic fatigue’ (WDDTY vol 14 no 12), I want to advise you of a very beneficial treatment I used when I had ME.
What is ME?
Myalgic encephalomyelitis, or chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), although treated as a 21st-century mystery, or all in the sufferer’s head, is a disorder of the nervous, immune and endocrine systems.
As ME is a collection of similarly presenting disorders, the most effective measures are those concentrating on ‘metabolic rehabilitation’, or treatments to help your body return to normal function.
