Why this site?
Historically, patients with chronic illnesses have always been easy targets for individuals or private businesses selling “cures”.
Fraudlisting is a site about alternative and nonscientific treatments for the illness myalgic encephalomyelitis (previously sometimes referred to as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome).
The purpose of this site is to provide patients, family and friends real information about companies who claim to be able to cure ME. There is a great need for freely available information about these proclaimed cures. This way patients and their loved ones are able to take informed decisions.
Who are we?
The site is run by volunteers.
We are motivated by our common frustration about the current treatment for ME. For too long, dodgy psychiatrists and incompetent doctors with dubious motives have misdirected the research for this very serious illness. This has ruined the lives of many ME patients and has made way for dubious treatments.
Now the same people and ideas are pestering the patients who suffer from long-COVID. This site will hopefully be helpful for these patients too.
What will you find here?
The evidence that ME is a real illness has been there for decades. However, the research has been (and keeps getting) mislead by a certain type of people and programs who push pseudoscience.
On this site, you will find information about some of the most widely marketed “cure”-programs such as:
Fraudlisting is created and written in an informal style (there are plenty of great, more technical sites and blogs out there about ME).
Also, if you are looking for great information about ME and about the ME programs check out the Reddit page for ME.
