You are not a practitioner, you are a patient, so you don't have to be limited by the confines of prejudice. There is only one philosophy that truly works for CFS/ME patients: if it works, do it. When you have the mother of all multi-system illnesses, this is not a time to cross treatments off your list simply because you don't believe in them.
As a good case in point, I offer myself. Before falling ill, I was an all-natural kind of person. I fed my family organic food, much of which I grew myself (and still do). I used herbal remedies for the most part, and I even wrote a book, The Supermarket Survival Handbook (never published), about safe, non-toxic products.
I still espouse the use of safe, non-toxic products, but during my long experience with CFS/ME I have learned that there is a place for everything. I take a small amount of clonazepam and a drop or two of doxepin to help me sleep, because no herbal remedy or complementary modality has been able to touch my insomnia. I also take a slew of vitamins, all of them in fact, and other supplements: fish oil, magnesium, zinc, NAG, enzymes, butyrates, and many more. The single treatment that has helped me the most was a cortisol injection. I take hormones (estrogen and progesterone), and I also visit acupuncturists. I meditate.
All of these things help, some quite dramatically. They are my bag of tricks – treatments that I pull out of my hat as needed.
My advice to people with CFS/ME is to develop your bag of tricks, and not stand too much on principle. The most productive approach is a pragmatic one. Do what works - for you.
