Alex discusses why patients in the nutrition program can benefit from also doing the psychology work with The Optimum Health Clinic. We do not in any way promote the idea that ME/CFS or Fibromyalgia are psychological illnesses, but that chronic illness is both difficult, stressful, and at times traumatising, and that ME/CFS in particular causes over-arousal, over stimulation, and the maladaptive stress response. Our psychology work can help reduce the stress load and calm the nervous system and help take the load off of the immune system.
