Poorly researched and misleading
13 August 2018 | by gardenmom-94497See all my reviews

They had an opportunity to do a great service to educate people about these illnesses but they add to the problem. They did not even follow what the National Institute of Health uses as criteria to dx, and treat. They are suggesting psycho-social disorders but if they had researched any truly scientific journals or contacted top dedicated researchers, not fly by night, just pocketing money from desperately sick people, quacks, this could have been an awesome awareness avenue.

Extremly disappointed. They should be embarrassed by the lack of real research on their part.
