THE PSYCHIATRIC LOBBY IS CRUMBLING
All that is propping up psychiatry's shameful involvement in ME is the medical establishment's prejudice and bias.
As David Tuller (2018) points out, the Cochrane Review process in ME is deeply flawed.
The PACE Trial itself, along with its underlying psychosocial paradigm has been effectively rejected by the American Public Health establishment and NICE are currently reviewing its Guideline.
Hopefully the new NICE Guideline will fully reflect the fact that : "biopsychosocial treatments, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and graded exercise therapy (GET), are correctly recognised to be ineffective and even harmful", in ME. (Kerr 2018)
As I show in the diagram below, without the AUTHORITY of Cochrane, with its flagship RESEARCH programme in tatters, with its underlying THEORY debunked, all that is left propping up psychiatry's hugely destructive, decades long involvement in ME is empty air - a toxic, suffocating mix of medical bias and prejudice.
Unfortunately the Psychiatric Lobby has done an extremely good job of misinforming society about ME.
The awful discrimination, that is destroying lives, is not going to be easily undone.
