    There's a new film on the way about treating pain with mind-body medicine, (NOT a recommendation);

    "THIS MIGHT HURT is a feature-length documentary that explores the chronic pain epidemic by following a group of patients as they attempt a last-resort treatment called mind-body medicine."

    http://www.thismighthurtfilm.com/#intro

    Hope this is the right forum for this. I'm not sure if there is any mention of ME/CFS in the film, but the focus of the film is the work of Howard Schubiner, who thinks CFS is a Psychophysiologic Disorder (PPD.) He is a cofounder of the Psychophysiologic Disorders Association. CFS is mentioned on this page;

    https://www.ppdassociation.org/patient/

    There is a thread about Schubiner's thoughts on CFS here;

    https://www.s4me.info/threads/2016-...essful-situations-from-past.6786/#post-123135

    From his Psychology Today article mentioned in the above thread;

    "You might be amused by the idea that an underlying personality style would have anything to do with chronic fatigue and pain."

    From the PPD Association's site;

    "With our focus on uncovering sources of stress, trauma and unrecognized emotion, patients are able to relieve and even CURE their symptoms without surgery, physical therapy, medication, or expensive alternative treatments."

    More about their activities, including a fibromyalgia study and another film, Pain Brain, also coming out this year;
