Resources and Links

Take your time going through this information list.  Just read or visit the content that is of interest to you.  


We only share the best clinically accepted and verified guidelines and information for ME/CFS and Long Covid. 

Be aware that a lot of content online or in books is not evidence-based, and that more research is needed to fully understand the causes and best treatments for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.  What helps one person, will not necessarily help someone else. 


Please refer to our ‘Living with ME/CFS’ content (coming soon), for practical advice on pacing and supports that may make a difference to your wellbeing and quality of life.
