The Chrysalis blog was set up to direct people, no matter where you are in the world, to finding answers for free to your health - but it began with a personal case of fibromyalgia/neurological pain, Chronic Fatigue and Lyme.
I vowed when my daughter recovered I would share how we did it. She did get better and we do share - but every day I see the same thing: now that it is medicalised it is about diagnosis and chasing symptoms (ie perceived depression and myalgia) - NOTHING about healing or undoing the various causes. And people have given up by the time they find this blog. Health and treatments are so far from Edenic today it is a wonder anyone survives, let alone really lives.

In 2006, which is relatively recent, when my daughter became unwell, we spent the better part of 3 years doing the rounds of around 20 different doctors/clinics/hospitals before we realised that yes, I would have to do it alone even if it was technically illegal. That old deja vu of 'this is what I have studied and rehearsed for my entire professional career' happened yet again as it has done so many times in my career.
'Medical treatment' in this instance involved anti-depressants, addictive analgesics and threat of admission into the mental health system which we refused.
