    Looking at previous winners, I wonder how on earth Crysalis managed to get herself included:

    - Birmingham Heartlands/ Macmillan Palliative Occupational Therapy Team
    - The Optometry Department, Manchester Royal Eye Hospital
    - 1-2-3 Manage COPD Service, Gateshead, South Tyneside NHS Foundation Trust

    This looks so much like the stories of cancer survivors who beat it by drinking fermented celery mush except they never actually had cancer in the first place.

    This is a prime market to sell tiger-repelling rocks, though. Would make a fortune. Can I get a prize, too? I don't have a nice website with fake testimonies but I do have an ample supply of tiger-repelling rock.

    Same reason LP is being elevated to credible science by the psychosophists. When you want to sell your own personal brand of snake oil, you have to make a case that snake oil isn't as bad as people know it to be.

    And if it ends up creating a crisis of confidence for your entire profession well that's just too darn bad because it pays very well until it all comes crashing down and you get run out of town.

    I think ME Association might be interested in adding this to their list of dodgy therapists to look into with a view to Advertising Standards etc I’ve pinged a message over to their press person with this link.

    There is no such thing as tiger repellent rocks.

    There are rocks capable of annoying tigers, rocks capable of injuring or killing tigers. It may even be possible for rock(s) to contain/restrain a tiger.

    But rocks that repel tigers?

    Since a tiger may decide to eliminate a source of annoyance, I think these would better be called tiger attracting rocks. ;)

    Hmmm. Double blinded tigers are quite unlikely to find a tiger repelling rock however big it is. Especially if the selection criteria is broad enough to include tigers with depression. I bet they could still find Chrysalis Effect founder Elaine Wilkins from Oxted by smell though.
