Wonders of the CFIDS Protocol' recovery report sent by UK website designer John Dillon, January 2007

As an aside to this Dr...
I'm please to say (and I'm touching wood as I write this) that my general health has been brilliant for as long as I can remember now. I really can't
think of the last time I had any kind of symptom related to CFS. Also I have only had 1 cold this year which lasted for about 3 days... very
unusual for me (and obviously now I'll get one now I have said that). This is enhanced by the fact I had no protocol for the last 3 weeks or so,
and noticed no difference whatsoever (and this was during a period where to be honest I wasn´t looking after myself as much as I normally do I i.e. red meat and alcohol etc...)
Now I'm sure there are lows to come... CFS has taught me that, but I'm feeling happier in myself than I ever have (even before getting CFS), and I
hope that one day I'll be free from it. Exercise is key for me as I have mentioned before. I used to workout regularly and play many sports, this is one thing I miss greatly. Don´t worry though I am not about to jump back into this immediately. I do a pilates routine coupled with some very light weights 3 times a week for about 30 mins. My aim is to gradually increase this over the next year or so, and see where it gets me. I am hoping, and this may be unrealistic, that perhaps around this time next year I might be able to start pushing myself a bit more, and go back to the gym. We shall see.
Anyway I just thought I would update you on my progress as further proof (not that you need it) of the wonders of your protocol. One other incidental
point I suppose is that I have definitely felt better (physically and mentally) since taking this new advanced protocol.
