  1. Thank you for your detailed yet accessible work Dr Ruscio, it is much appreciated by the community I am sure! No idea how you manage to publish as regularly as you do, and produce such good and well-researched blog entries; I barely manage to read for my own research projects 🙂 Have a great week-end x

  2. Oh god, please don’t spread that misinformation about exercise for CFS, because this Cohrane review is mostly based on very flawed study known as PACE trial which has recently been debunked by dozens of researchers, scientists, journalists and patients over and over again and even named as an example of how NOT to do a study, This is very important as it can seriously harm some patients!

    And this is just a tinny bit of what’s going on…

    1. I agree about using exercise as a primary treatment for CFS. Exercise has to be carefully used so as not to suffer post-exertion malaise. I appreciate Dr, Ruscio’s website very much but I wish he would remove this. As a sufferer since 1980, I know it is wrong.

    1. Sorry for a bit too emotional write-up, it’s just that many patients suffer severe consequences due to this.

    2. I agree about using exercise as a primary treatment for CFS. Exercise has to be carefully used so as not to suffer post-exertion malaise. I appreciate Dr, Ruscio’s website very much but I wish he would remove this. As a sufferer since 1980, I know it is wrong.

  5. Would love for you to podcast your take on Zach Bush’s RESTORE product and associated research and rationales. Thanks.
