Support Programme for Chronic Illness, ME/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia
Overall playing time: 6 hours 53m
**Suitable for all levels, beginners & advanced
The wide ranging and often distressing symptoms of chronic illness, including ME/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia, can keep the body in a state of constant stress, inhibiting its natural self-repair mechanisms.
Support your body’s natural healing process
This twelve-week audio programme by Linda Hall supports the body’s natural healing process, providing powerful self-help tools to manage symptoms and underpin recovery. Each weekly session combines gentle coaching and guided meditation followed by some easy to understand daily mindfulness practice.
If you suffer from fatigue, sensory overwhelm, ‘tired and wired’, busy mind, chronic tension, brain fog, anxiety, insomnia, or pain, this programme will teach you how to calm and re-balance your body and mind and help you to regain a sense of inner well-being.
Learn how to put your body into the optimum state for healing
You’ll learn what is likely to increase your symptoms, what you can do to lower them, and how to put your body into the optimum state for healing. It will help you develop the emotional and psychological resources needed to manage your condition and, where appropriate, move towards recovery.
Supporting you as an individual
This programme aims to support you as an individual, whatever your condition and level of mobility. It takes into account the cognitive impairment and hypersensitivity that often occurs through illness. All information is presented slowly, calmly and clearly and each of the twelve modules can be completed at your own pace.
Optional learning aides included
As an optional learning aide, a PDF document with the content in each module is included for you to print and then read at your own pace, to act as a reminder of what you’ve learnt and help you digest the information more easily. We’ve also provided a Frequently Asked Questions PDF document.
Linda had M.E. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, herself, for almost a decade. Since her recovery she has taught hundreds of patients at The Optimum Health Clinic, an award-winning UK clinic specialising in M.E. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia.
