This post is for Evelyn Metts (and others) who wrote me about her 26-year-old son who has just been diagnosed with ME (or CFS). She asked how people could regain control of their lives considering there is no cure for ME. I suggested a few things for her son to try, but Giles Meehan’s advice in the video below is much more wide-ranging.
The video contains an overview of the ten main areas to look at for the treatment of ME, which are the things that have really helped me and many others cope with this illness.
Giles says that, since there are many different triggers, predispositions, symptoms and even causes of ME, different people can respond differently to the same treatments. So he recommends using a planned approach to implement some of the main suggestions, and then try other treatments or “bits of the jigsaw”, as he puts it. He also emphasizes how important it is to give a treatment the time to take effect.
Overall, really good advice and an excellent video.
Here are the ten main areas Giles suggests we look at for the treatment of ME:
