…and highlights cutting edge treatment; Mickel Therapy
The chronic condition M.E (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, often referred to as chronic fatigue syndrome) is the subject of a new two part BBC ALBA documentary airing on 23rd and 30th January at 9pm. This aims to raise awareness about the challenges people face with this debilitating condition.
M.E is a worldwide epidemic, affecting an estimated 250,000 people in the UK alone. Symptoms can range from extreme exhaustion, muscle pain, anxiety, brain fog, nausea, dizziness, depression and food intolerances to many more.
Up until now, the general consensus has been that there are no known reasons for this condition, most recently with wide-spread press coverage about research on the XMRV virus being withdrawn.
While the documentary aims to raise awareness of the condition and look at it from all perspectives, it also looks at a specialised treatment for it. The program follows Dr David Mickel, a GP from Elgin and creator of the revolutionary treatment ‘Mickel Therapy’, which he has been pioneering for the past 12 years.
The BBC ALBA documentary focuses on a typical day in the life of this busy Scottish doctor, including working with clients, and shows how this talking therapy can resolve the severe symptoms clients usually present with.
As Dr Mickel explains: “We believe the problems with this condition stem from the Hypothalamus gland / mid-brain region which become overactive. This creates a huge range of symptoms.” He continues: “We work with emotions which arise without thought. This is the source of the symptoms.”
“We want to be absolutely clear though, that we are not saying that changing your thinking will stop your symptoms: this is a misconception, as is the belief the illness is created by a virus, which we believe to be untrue.”
Mickel Therapy has proven otherwise, and is estimated to have already helped over 5,000 people in the UK and worldwide to return to full health.
The documentary airs on BBC ALBA on January 23rd and 30th at 9pm.
Mickel Therapy receives greater focus in the episode on the 30th January.
