    This organisation popped up as a promoted result in a google search I did.

    their 2 or 4 hour process involving a ‘scan’ is claimed to be a treatment for a shopping list of conditions including ME........ which seems plausible - not

    I reckon it’s a good candidate for a referral to Advertising Standards.

    @Russell Fleming is this something for the MEA to take to Advertising Standards to stop them advertising?

    Utterly weird - they lump ME/CFS and SAD together as if they're the same thing. https://www.simplytreatment.co.uk/me-cfs/ . They lump them together on the home page too: 'ME/CFS + SAD'. How on earth did they arrive at such a bizarre connection? :confused:

    Do they provide a free bag to go with the shopping list? I think we should be told.

    I have emailed MEAssociation in case it’s not on their radar.

    Amazing that this blatant fraud uses the exact same language as the other blatant frauds blessed by the popes of medicine. How odd.
    There is no disease. Isn't that wonderful? You can aim for 100% recovery! It's a total cure if you commit yourself to it.

    Quacks are all alike, low and high, with or without a medical license, they quack just the same.

    simplytreatment website is stated to be under scheduled maintenance for some time now , presumably after it was challenged by S4me.
    But they have a few more other websites advertising their similar services. The most recent one that I came across is www.bodytech.clinic giving Manchester as their Admin Office . Are these people really genuine helpers or just financially dwindling the vulnerable people. What is the Advertising Standards doing about these organisations. Thanks
