ME survivor to talk on BBC

Have your say

a chronic fatigue sufferer from the Capital is to feature in a two-part BBC documentary starting tonight.

Holly Tomas, 48, from East Lothian, will feature in the BBC Alba documentary about Mickel Therapy treatment, which she says cured her after 27 years of suffering Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, or ME.

The programme focuses on the work of Dr David Mickel, who devised the therapy.

Ms Tomas, who helps others learn the techniques she was taught to overcome the condition, said: “I am so thankful to be free of symptoms. Mickel Therapy has given me my life back and I’m fortunate to be able to share this with others.”

An Sgìths Nimheil, or The Toxic Tiredness, begins at 9pm on Monday and concludes on January 30.
