    Heard a CFS Specialist on talk back radio a while back and was very impressed. Ended up contacting his office and he treats FM patients too. Does NOT see any other type of patients. His rooms are about 3 1/2 hours away from us but Hubby is happy to take me there on August 13th. First appointment is 70 mins, 2nd 40 mins and then you go back to 20 mins. A number of tests are done at first visit and I have already returned my Treatment pack which asks a lot of questions and is analysed before you go. He recoginises immunalogical(sp) probs etc and advocates that we go very slowly with exercise and staying at a level for a while before upgrading. Talks about circulation issues, insulin, intolerances to meds and allsorts of other things. Am feeling very hopeful that he can help me and tho' I know appointment time will come quickly it seems ages away. Know I will be on drugs of some sort, but if that is what I need to get me feeling better then I am prepared to take them.By the way, just in case anybody needs to know, I live in Australia. Sorry!!. love Ozgran

    Do you know if he treats with a holistic approach? ie illness back to childhood, Parents & Grandparents health issues, does he have knowledge of how cellular activity actually works? ie water, colour & minerals, - sounds crazy but is.

    Only thing i`m not happy about is being given drugs, these do not heal - only the body can do that if given the right approach/diet/supplements.

    Water, Flaxseed Oil & Oils in general are something he should be hot on...

    Shame you have to wait till Aug 13, be an exhausting day, but what hope you have now, good luck.

    Love Pat.

    I'm so glad you have found someone who specializes in our illnesses. Be sure to let us know what test are done (get copies of your results) and what treatments/medications the doc prescribes.

    I hope this doc can help you.

    Love, Mikie
