    Seems a bit odd that all their claims are unreferenced.

    Given the origin, maybe not so odd.

    Considering who the authors are, I don't find it odd at all.

    ETA: Cross-posted with Barry. :)

    Well, as a cruel and unusual punishment to myself, I've just read it. What a patronising and simplistic document.

    Not a word about what to do if their magic and un-evidenced (they admit this) treatments don't work.

    As for the statement in the opening paragraph:
    Words fail me.

    It doesn't read like a scientific document.

    "Post exertional malaise is a particularly useful symptom"

    Try it yourself and see EC. And yes, I know it's not quite how you meant it, but crass however you look at it.

    I see it's from last September, but we don't seem to have spotted it then. Well spotted, @Andy.

    It isn't. But I think part of that is that it is another example of a senior partner not bothering to read what is published in their name.
