Who has beaten this? Who has gotten some or all of her/his life back? I'm sure there are posts all over this website about what has worked and what hasn't. But just post them here again for people to read as a reminder that there is an answer out there!!!! There can never be too much hope or faith. We need it. Thank you!!! Cristine p.s. For me I've done acupuncture since March. I feel a bit better immediately following it but the long lasting effects have not manifested themselves as of yet. And each treatment costs $75. I also did a homepathic treatment and took an herb of potency protease (don't want to write exact name/brand here) that was to "activate macrophages" -- it caused me to relapse horrendously. I suppose CFSers do NOT need to activate their immune systems?! Finally, I did a colon cleanse over a period of 4 weeks which actually did help a tiny bit. BUt I'm still not even close to a full recovery.
