Experienced Patients are not medically trained or otherwise professionally qualified in health-related disciplines. They are not permitted to give advice, particularly medical advice, which may be defined as attempting to diagnose, treat or cure an illness or injury. They may only share information on their own experiences and provide moral support.
Patients should not construe anything which an Experienced Patient says or writes as advice, medical or otherwise. By making an appointment with an Experienced Patient, patients are expressly agreeing to this.
I looked after my ex-partner who has ME/CFS for 2 years, being a full-time carer, mentor, and researcher and in that time he went from a wheelchair to walking over two miles. I cannot stress enough that every case is different and I cannot make any promises that this apparent success can be repeated ... I can only promise that for as long as you want me to try I will not give up on you.
We tried many approaches before finding Dr Myhill's work. Not only did the science make sense but the way she explained things was easy to understand. I turned getting him well into an active project and it became a full-time mission. We hit a lot of dead ends but used these to learn from and explore new avenues. ( I am like Thomas Edison a woman on a mission. I took the attitude that " I have not failed, I have just found 10,000 things that don't work ").I now think that my level of understanding of and ability to explain the science of ME/CFS is such that I can teach and mentor others in their own journey to health. I am also studying for formal qualifications.
Why should you consider working with me ?.... because my passion for and dedication to this is relentless.I have discovered that I am a compulsive researcher! I can be the energy you don't have to do research and, the motivation to keep going when it all seems hopeless. I want us to work as a team towards your recovery.
Following our fact find consultation I will devise a plan that suits you for us to aim at where we approach diet, supplements, and tests where appropriate.We will monitor progress and if something isn't working we will change it. I can help you to identify, arrange and interpret possible relevant tests and can access Dr. Myhill as a consultant where we need her expert advice.
Your first consultation is free and needs to be at least an hour. I will ask you to provide some background information in advance so that I can prepare for the consultation. I will also follow up with a report covering what we discussed and some ideas to move forward.
My approach is friendly and relaxed, very much styled on Dr Myhills protocol, tweaked for you individually. There is no one size fits all solution for everyone. I hope I can be of some help to you.

I first fell ill 16 years ago. A very nasty throat infection (that was probably glandular fever) turned into months of throat infections and eventually a permanent sore throat and serve fatigue. Visits to my GP, ENT, tonsils removed, then onto an Immunologist, who finally told me "The Epstein Barr virus had likely caused this, leading to CFS. Go home and get on with you life as best you can. There is nothing we can do." This was not a realistic solution for a mother of then 5 year old twins.
I was very lucky to find a private GP who was also qualified in Nutritional Medicine. His approach to using supplements, diet and medication when necessary, lead to gradual recovery from leaky gut and candida overgrowth. Ironically all the antibiotics and painkillers that I was fobbed off with had probably made the situation worse. He has now retired.
Having been fairly ok for some intervening years, last year a throat infection when I was really run down lead to ongoing fatigue. The last 7 months I have had a constant sore throat and fatigue. After visits to my GP (all they want to do is give me antibiotics) ENT and Gastroenterologist I am no better.
Thank goodness I found Elaine. Having given her my history, details of diet and supplements, she took the time to explain what is probably going on and what we can try to help me recover. She really knows her stuff and is easy to talk to and really listens to what you have to say. I am reassured that she is taking a similar approach to the one that worked for me all those years ago. I do not have the knowledge or energy to work out what to do to help myself. Elaine has formed a plan which should lead to recovery. Any questions I have she answers, or does some research if need be. If conventional medicine has not had the answer for you, speak to Elaine and see if her approach can help you too.
