Hi, iv been ME for 6 years now and starting to discover different ways to get more energy into my body, im finding that detoxifying really helps because People wirh ME have problems with detoxing, i think this is the way forward to reliving pain and as much raw food as possible and taking supplements to boost immunity, i also use a collagen light therapy sun bed which lifts mood and makes me feel awake and im now trying out an infra red sauna blanket and will be trying the oxegen chambers soon.
Has anyone tryed these treatments and what is your opinion?

I'm pretty sure that the infra-red sauna detoxifying claims are nonsense and based upon a misguided understanding as to how the body expels toxins.
I think it's best to be cautious with all these things, but good luck with it.
There is a discussion group called CFS/ME suffererers. Let's talk about what WORKS for you. Maybe you could hop on over there and let us know if the oxygen therapy and the Sun blanket help after you try them. Myself, I've been considering the detox idea, and have decided to go at it gradually, rather than a full cleanse all at once. I don't think my body is quite strong enough for that yet. Let us know what works for you tho. Thank you.
As far as the immune system is concerned, the major problem, as far as ME/CFS patients are concerned, is that the immune system is usually hyperactive anyway and certainly doesn't need boosting.
There is always the desire with something like ME/CFS to be trying to be "doing something" to improve our condition, whereas the evidence says that little that we do actually helps, other than helping to make us feel in control, which unfortunately with ME/CFS is never the case..
Yes, a healthy diet is always extremely important for health and the healthier one eats the better we will be, but that applies to anybody and unless you've been diagnosed as having specific deficiencies, supplements are going to be of little use.
People with ME/CFS tend to gradually improve with time naturally as the body learns to cope and repairs what it can, but people often ascribe that recovery to all sorts of things that they have "done", unfortunately those things aren't replicable across the ME/CFS population and cause and effect is never proved.
A healthy diet and a very gentle lifestyle is probably the one thing that all of us agree works, as to anything else, everyone seems to have their own favourite regimes and potions that are usually born out of that need to feel in control rather than any actual science.
Raw food and supplements definitely!
