Hypothesis: Mechanisms That Prevent Recovery in Prolonged ICU Patients Also Underlie ME/CFS

HYPOTHESIS AND THEORY ARTICLE Front. Med., 28 January 2021 | https://doi.org/10.3389/fmed.2021.62802 Dominic Stanculescu, Lars Larsson and Jonas Bergquist Under a Creative Commons license open access Here Dominic Stanculescu et al. advance the hypothesis that ‘maladaptive mechanisms’ that prevent recovery in some intensive care unit (ICU) patients may also underlie Myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS). Specifically, these mechanisms are: (a) suppression ofContinue reading “Hypothesis: Mechanisms That Prevent Recovery in Prolonged ICU Patients Also Underlie ME/CFS”

ME/CFS and CBT – a basic error

For more than three decades, the Wessely School has searched for empirical support for its psychosomatic approach to CFS. That search has been in vain. I show here, here and here that the theoretical assumptions of the Wessely approach lack support and have fallen. The drive to show CBT and GET are effective treatments hasContinue reading “ME/CFS and CBT – a basic error”
