CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

"Dr Smith got me better by a gradually increasing activity programme (to start with 2 minutes of activity every hour and ending with 25 minutes of activity every hour by which time we all agreed I'd cracked it) plus a course of anti-depressants for six months which sorted out the bad sleep pattern."

"I'm going to be taking this at a much slower pace than I would have attempted before my CFS!! We have the wedding planned for May 2003 so I have lots to organise on that front too! It will be a busy time and a good test of my new health and what I have learnt about how to keep it!"

"I have friend in New Zealand who has suffered for very many years and suggested that she try the treatment . She has been on it for a while and I am told has benefited greatly. I am extremely grateful to Dr Smith for putting the info on the net It is so well explained and all makes so much sense."
