Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), also known as Myalgic Encepthalomyelitis (ME), is a serious, often disabling illness that attacks all body systems. Over 1 million Americans, including children, suffer from ME/CFS. As yet, there is no cure. Treatment is aimed at treating the symptoms.

But, new and promising multi-disciplinary, multi-national research, and technologies are advancing treatment protocols for patients worldwide.
