INTERNATIONAL ME/CFS AWARENESS DAY 2024

12th May is International ME/CFS Awareness Day, also promoted as World ME Day.

On this important day, organisations and individuals recognise and support the millions of people world-wide who are affected by ME/CFS and other chronic immunological and neurological diseases by raising public awareness.

Our patients deserve all the recognition in the world, navigating through the debilitating conditions ME/CFS, Fibromyalgia and now Long COVID.

Today we wanted to take the opportunity to celebrate YOU by sharing some achievements made on your recovery journeys with The Perrin Technique.

This significant day coincides with the 55th anniversary since the World Health Organisation (WHO) officially acknowledged ME/CFS in their International Classification of Diseases.

ME/CFS Awareness Day was established to combat the widespread misunderstanding and stigmatisation associated with the condition. Over the years, it has grown into a significant global observance, driving international efforts to enhance the quality of life for those affected. Today, and every day, we stand with the ME/CFS community as a #GlobalVoiceForME

SELF-HELP DEMONSTRATION GUIDE IS NOW LIVE!

The guide demonstrates the full at-home routine for all patients who are currently receiving treatment from a licensed Perrin Technique Practitioner.

The guide, which can be found on our YouTube as well as our website, has been split into separate sections so patients can navigate to the specific elements of the routine they wish to view. 

All of the information provided in the guide can be found in the latest Perrin Technique books and we hope the videos can further assist in ensuring patients carry out every aspect of the routines correctly.

Eulogy for Dr Andy Wright

Dear All

It is with great sadness that I announce the death of local doctor 64 year old Andy Wright who helped me and probably thousands of people around the globe.

I first met Andy in the 1990s when I began work with ME/CFS patients. In those days the NHS weren’t helping many people but one caring doctor in Bolton was improving the health of many patients and that was Andy. We met up and spoke on the phone regularly and occasionally went out for a curry with our mutual friend and colleague integrative dentist John Roberts who lectured to our Conference many years ago. My PhD couldn’t have been completed without his encouragement and advice. He introduced me to so many concepts that helped shape my many years of continuous clinical research in this department.

Treating ME and Lyme Disease differently to his NHS colleagues led to problems with the GMC who ordered him to stop his pioneering efforts. I told Andy he had to fight and stay with his important work but alas he was forced out. He explained to me that he had no choice and told me “Ray, I have a wife and young family to support and I need to make a living for them so I have to give up my ME/CFS and Lymes work so I can keep my job as a GP.”

I wished him well and have constantly thought about his work and his concepts when addressing my own research in this field. His appearance in the YouTube  Perrin Technique Film can still be seen on my website supporting my work (which you can still view online – https://theperrintechnique.com/about-us/ ). Thousands of patients around the world are benefiting from my treatment and many still watch the film.

My work has progressed to Long COVID and many of the concepts Andy and I have discussed in the past are helping patients with this disease. My treatment for Lyme disease is based on the help and advice given to me by Andy and many patients around the world with ME/CFS type illnesses have undiagnosed Lyme / similar diseases, exactly as Andy had predicted 30 years ago.

I used to send my regards to Andy via mutual patients but I feel sad that we didn’t keep closer contact over the years. I felt it would be hard for Andy, as he was kept away from continuing his scientific endeavours.

My latest book on Long COVID is almost complete and I have decided to dedicate the book to three friends and colleagues that I have sadly lost in the past month. One of them is Andy, may his dear soul rest in peace. The millions of patients with Long COVID, Lymes, ME/CFS and Fibromyalgia all owe a huge gratitude to Dr Andy Wright and I will make sure they know it.
