    Very nice, simple, clear and powerful letter, @Lou Corsius. I hope it will reach the right ears.

    I feel like besides GET and CBT, attention needs to be paid to the fact that there isn't any good evidence for labeling CFS as a functional disorder, and the many assumptions that go along with putting something under that label.

    Also the fact that they state that there is evidence of moderate strength of exercise not having serious adverse affects, even though the cochrane review they cite mostly refers to Graded Exercise Therapy, which is quite different from saying any kind of exercise isn't harmful, and the review they cite itself says "limited information makes it difficult to draw firm conclusions about the safety of exercise therapy".
