is Chronic Neurosomatic Illness?


Chronic Neurosomatic Illnesses (CNIs) include severe debilitating disorders like CFS/ME and fibromyalgia that arise through dysregulation of neurobiological systems which are involved in the chronic stress response in individuals whose neural networks and neurochemistry were subject to early life “programming”. CNIs therefore result from changes in gene behaviour, i.e. they are epigenetic in origin rather governed directly by our genetic inheritance. These long-term epigenetic changes are the result of early life neurobiological “programming” of our neural networks and of our hormonal balance and brain/body neurochemistry.

The neuroscience evidence also shows that our brain remains plastic and malleable throughout our lives. Brain plasticity means that we can change for ourselves both the behaviour of our own genes and the neurobiology of our own brain-body system in crucial health-enhancing ways. This vital discovery means that we can use transformational epigenetics to dispel the symptoms of these chronic neurosomatic illnesses, and overcome these illnesses, even after many decades of debility, to make a full and permanent recovery. Rather than dwelling on past experiences, the work of recovery from CFS/ME and fibromyalgia therefore involves learning to take effective energy-enhancing forms of action, rather than harmful energy-depleting forms of action, in the here and now - dispelling your symptoms, once and for all.

Proviso: The majority of people with CFS/ME and FM make a full and lasting recovery by following our neurosomatic programme. We approach this work with the most genuine of intentions and conviction that the neurosomatic approach can be highly effective for most people with these conditions. However, we also affirm that the neurosomatic approach may not be suitable for everyone with CFS/ME and FM, and, depending on your illness history and other factors, we are unable to guarantee that this approach will help everyone.

Unfortunately, we are not yet in a position to be able to confirm the extent to which Neurosomatic Therapy is appropriate or helpful for individuals suffering from Long Covid-19. We will update this site as new medical evidence appears.

CFS/ME and fibromyalgia can therefore be considered to be reversible, chronic,
epigenetically-acquired, neurosomatic disorders (or CENDS).

PLEASE NOTE: Our use of the term 'neurosomatic' has no connection whatsoever with the (US) massage treatment that has adopted a similar term - our approach is a form of therapy based on talking, self-awareness and taking positive action.

How Proactive Neurosomatic Therapy Works

• We explain how our neural networks can make us particularly vulnerable to illness
• We explain the link between your symptoms and the dysfunction of the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) and the
Hypothalamus-Pituitary-Adrenal Gland axis (HPA axis), i.e. over-stimulation of the ANS and HPA axis, but which can often lead to under-stimulation of the ANS and HPA axis, adrenal fatigue and metabolic/physiological collapse
• We help you discover the hidden meaning of your symptoms
• We help you establish new neural pathways and a healthy body-wide balance of neurochemicals and hormones by making new choices of energy-enhancing action that will dispel your symptoms, rather than energy-depleting actions that sustain your symptoms or lead to relapse
• We help you learn to use new ways of establishing and sustaining wellness

• There is no specific medication, change of diet or exercise programme
• We employ face-to-face talking, from which we design your own recovery programme in relation to your own state of illness and your own personal circumstances

• We guide you to take effective, energy-enhancing activities that dispel your symptoms

Testimonials from Clients

"A miracle happened! After 10 years of fatigue, muscle pain, taking a cocktail of drugs, planning so as not to over exert myself. Feeling each day was a drudge to get through. Being disconnected emotionally and physically, from family, friends. I have come alive! After three months treatment I can swim, walk, do Pilates and participate in life in a way I never thought possible. I am proactive in my relationships, making plans and enjoying the day. Sleeping through the night. Also, have stopped my 10-year cocktail of drugs and their side effects! The future has opened up for me. I have new hopes and dreams. This summer I will be travelling, visiting friends and family. Setting up a new business, reading and learning. I do not ‘completely’ understand how the treatment works, I just know it has. I will be eternally grateful for the work you (Judith) have done in establishing this treatment. And for you as a person, you are a wise, inspirational, discerning, gifted therapist, who has given me my ‘self’  back. Many many thanks! Advice if you're thinking about trying this recovery programme: Go for it! Don't think about it, just do it. Trust Judith." C.G., fully recovered from fibromyalgia after 10 years 'officially', but probably 26 years of pain and debility

"I came to Fiona eight years after being diagnosed with fibromyalgia, and during a period when I was also suffering from chronic fatigue. Fiona helped me pinpoint the key triggers for my symptoms; the fatigue has now lifted, and my muscle and nerve pain is also subsiding. I am convinced that Fiona's analysis of the root causes of these conditions is correct - but over and above this, she is a gifted healer who not only set me on the road to recovery, but also made me feel welcome and nurtured." E.C.

"I suffered from M.E. on and off for over 25 years. Once I learned about the biological processes involved in creating the symptoms, and we discovered what my symptoms were really trying to tell me, I learned to take effective action to literally switch off the symptoms. It felt like a MIRACLE! I am a new woman - a Well Woman, for the first time since age 30!" J.M.

"I have been completely overjoyed at the effectiveness of the Recovery Programme.  After having M.E. for 10 years and trying different treatments and diets I had almost given up hope of ever fully recovering.  I noticed an improvement in my symptoms after just one session and have been improving ever since. It was such a relief to finally understand the reasons behind my illness and then feel empowered to be participating in my own recovery by following the Programme instead of spending years hoping someone else would fix me! I am now almost fully recovered and am enjoying life again!" Michele Crawley, recovered from CFS/ME after 10 years of illness.

"Having suffered with the effects of chronic tiredness/fatigue for the past ten years, coupled with anxiety, low self esteem and just being continually on-edge, I always felt there must be a connection, but my research always led to a separation of these afflictions, each having their own symptoms and treatments.  Then I stumbled upon Judith’s work, which provided a true lightbulb moment. Suddenly everything made sense, so much so that I felt very emotional having at last a full understanding of my illness and its root cause, which led to the beginning of my recovery. Her compassion and understanding I will never forget." Paul Greenhaulgh, California, USA, and Lancs, UK.

"We started our sessions after I’d mentioned my fibromyalgia pain to Judith, who then asked me if I was angry about anything. I was so surprised at such an unexpected question, especially as my response was a strong “YES!”, but this was anger that I had kept inside. While sceptical at first, after just a few sessions I could feel a great improvement, and within 3 months I had no more pain. Judith taught me what to do to get my anger out safely and to talk to my partner about my feelings whenever I felt the pain coming back. When my pain occasionally comes back I know exactly what to do to get rid of it. I would recommend this treatment to anybody with fibromyalgia pain as the recovery programme has helped me tremendously."  Marie-Louise, fully recovered from fibromyalgia after 3 years of pain and debility.
