    Fibromyalgia is an allergy to gut microbes, apparently.

    Completely bonkers as usual!

    Not sure it is proven or disproven either way yet?

    If stuff is leaking out of your gut into places it does not belong, then presumably there will be all sorts of possible unpleasant effects.

    Exactly. We don't know what fibromyalgia is, and therefore Dr. Myhill should not be making assertive, confident statements about what fibromyalgia is. Or for that matter ME and CFS, which she routinely does.

    Unfortunately too many people love ‘assertive, confident statements’ as illustrated by the people offering blind devotion to such as Dr Myhill.

    Moved from Video: Phil Murrays ME/CFS full recovery story & call for more research funding

    This has just come up in a prominent position in a search. It's not by Phil.
    I don't know who wrote it but seems to have originated at Bath University? The author seems to be a Sarah Myhill supporter. I also don't know when it was written.

    How to recover ME/CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome)

    This is an academic homepage, so the author is the person who's webpage it is. In this case, that is Alastair Craw (home is here https://people.bath.ac.uk/ac886/)

    Firstly I don't have a lot of truck with some of Dr Myhill's views especially around vaccinations.
    However when I first got ill and worked out by myself it was ME and then saw the paucity ridiculousness of NHS advice I turned to Dr Myhill for what to do. She has a high online presence, maybe because she's selling stuff but also offers some sound advice.
    The bath people post above is almost a perfect reflection of my own illness. Any contact I had with the NHS included an exhortation to keep exercising. Dr Myhill gave me the confidence to reject this and rest and pace.
    None of the supplements did anything for me and I wasn't good at the pacing I required. I mean it's really hard to suddenly step down from a super active life to virtually catatonic.
    I didn't do keto at that time but this year I have and guess what I'm able to be more active on it.
    It's a hateful diet though.
    She might not be everyone's cup of tea here but she helped me

    That is seriously concerning. I hope Dr Myhill's ME patients realise she's talking unscientific rubbish. She seems to have veered further and further into quackland every time I read about her, and now apparently into the outer limits of conspiracy theorist loonie land.

    Same it's really sad as I used to be one of her patients and she really helped me over a decade ago. It's quite terrifying to see, and every time I look it's worse. The stuff on the screenshots here is just so dire I don't know how one begins to get into those kinds of thoughts :sick::(

    Same. She has been doing stuff for years that means that she cannot be an effective spokeperson for us, not that she ever particularly was. The "take on the establishment" stuff never really helped her patients; I remember finding her outside activities impractical and frustrating as a patient. She was dogmatic and did not think strategically even then. Nobody pays attention to her and that's good, but I hope nobody sees this. Inviting her runs the risk of drawing attention to it.
