Here is what others have said…

“When I was diagnosed with ME Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, the doctors said I just had to live with it. They were wrong. With specialist help I recovered. If I can, more can.”

“I am impressed with how dedicated the OHC team is to improving awareness, treatment and availability of this approach to the wider public. I have found my entire experience professional, compassionate and rewarding.”

“After 10 years as a trustee of Action for ME, and after struggling to get clarity when I wrote a book on ME in the late nineties, I just wish that the thorough and integrated approach at The Optimum Health Clinic had been available then.”

With hindsight, I believe my ME started in c. 2003. I suffered a miscarriage at 12 weeks, and had to have a general anaesthetic as a result. After that, I started to have occasional woozy moments but thought nothing of it. In 2004 I was offered redundancy while pregnant, which I took without hesitation! I then had my first child, and was told I reacted to the pethidine with an unusual rash. I was obviously very tired with a new baby, and the days seemed to blend in to one another. After a few months I felt I needed to do something for me, and so started a tiny part time business from home doing something I love. This gave me a different focus for a short while which was psychologically invaluable, but did increase the pressure on my time. I started to have odd moments of feeling like I was sitting on a boat on a choppy sea, I suffered with more and more colds, and even though I grabbed chances to sleep whenever I could, I was still permanently tired.

I first became involved with Alex Howard’s Optimum Health Clinic 3 years ago. I was then almost totally housebound and had severe cognitive impairment. For 2 years I had phone consultations with the nutritionist and made slow but steady progress. I was no longer housebound and my brain function had improved. However I was still pacing vigorously, resting 2 hourly.

From the clinic website I heard of many inspirational stories, although initially sceptical I decided to get involved with the psychological side of the clinic. The clinic uses a combination of techniques influenced by The Lightning process, Reverse Therapy, N.L.P. and Hypnosis. In March 09 I enrolled on “the 90 Day Programme”. This involved attending a 2 and 1/2 day London course, follow-up during the following 90 days with conference calls with the group and one to one phone calls with one of the clinic psychology practitioners Anna.
