The only thing I can find out (it's all been done at local group level) is that one in London fell through.

He will however be doing interviews on ITV and STV, will let veryone know more when and if.

Dr teitlebaum

Postby anne1206 » Mon Aug 18, 2008 12:28 pm

Hi just watched him on This Morning :( afraid I personaly didnt find any of it very informative, he didnt really talk about Fibro only about tiredness, which we all have but I fing the pain very difficult to deal with. I am hoping his talk in Glasgow on thursday will be more informative wil let you all know. :roll:

I think Dr Teitelbaum was aiming his talk at what the media wanted. I was honoured to meet him on Sunday and he is very knowledgeable, but the media wouldn't be interested in much science and medications! Plus he does tend to concentrate on an all-round approach to Fibro and CFS, rather than treating symptoms such as pain.

Dr teitlebaum

Postby anne1206 » Thu Aug 21, 2008 6:12 pm

Hi just got back from talk, have to say this man is very knowledgable, he was accompanied by a doctor from glasgow who specialises in fibro, great slide show showing exactly what is happening to our bodies, although it doesnt cure us it does help to understand. Dr Teitlbaum very much supports the SHINE remedy and admits t is not a cure but should lessen the pain and make our day to day lives a bit more bearable, Ii agree with what Linzy said think it was what the media wanted on the TV and also his talk today was for ninety minutes so he could go into the science and medication side of things, Was extremely interesting to listen to and as I take some of the things he reccommends felt I was helping myself as far as possible. He seems to understand that our docs dont undersand us, but as he says its not because they are daft its that they dont have enough knowledge of the condition. The SHINE method is found on www.vitality101.com, havent visited site yet myself, Doc from glasgow said they are quite near a blood test for fibro and this will mean getting a diagnosis sooner instead of having all the usual tests coming back NORMAL, as I think we can all associate with that. :roll: sorry for prattling on am really exhausted now but to finish, over 300 people attended today and I was amazed to be with so many fellow sufferers, I have now found out there is a support group in glasgow so am going to join. Dr teitlebaums book can be purchased on AMAZON.
