Video Interview with Dr. Chia - A Must-Watch

Below is a two part interview of Dr. John Chia where he discusses the causes of ME/CFS and his recommendations for its treatment.  I may be biased, as Dr. Chia is my treating physician, but I strongly believe that every PWME and their friends/loved ones should watch these videos.

The interviewer is journalist Lewellyn King of PBS fame.  King has taken an interest in CFS in recent years, as seen in these interviews and on his website.  (King's article "Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Its Chronic Costs," linked above, is also worth reading.)

You may wish to watch a larger version of these videos by clicking the YouTube symbol in the lower right corner of the screen and watching the videos directly from YouTube.

  1. Thanks for posting these! Good info and it is nice to hear that some recover from this illness.

  2. After watching the vids, I took the plunge and started on equlibriant. So far so good. I've only been on it for a week so hard to say if there is any huge difference yet. I'll let you know if I end up ice skating! :)

    1. Wow, good for you Baffled! Did you start with one pill per day? I remember feeling a slight feverish feeling when I started.

      Anyway, I'm crossing my fingers for your. Good luck!

  3. I started at 2 a day. One with breakfast and one with dinner. I've been taking it about a week now. Other than stiff neck muscles and a low grade headache (which I had daily when I first contracted CFS) I seem to be fine. No fever so far.
