Madam -- Re: 'The Power of Thought' by Joy Orpen, (Sunday Independent Life magazine, May 13, 2012).

I am glad to hear that Niamh is symptom free as a result of her ME treatment. On the other hand, we cannot all be scientists but the public can and should demand evidence of reasonable standards of proof.

Whatever the claims, they should be repeatedly and systematically tested, with both positive and negative results published in reliable peer-reviewed journals.
