Chrysalis Effect

From MEpedia, a crowd-sourced encyclopedia of ME and CFS science and history

The Chrysalis Effect advertises itself as a support program or treatment for ME/CFS.[1] Chrysalis Effect practitioners pay to receive training and resources, and then offer a Chrysalis Effect program to others.

Evidence[edit | edit source]

No peer-reviewed clinical trial research has been published to show the effectiveness or safety of the Chrysalis Effect.[1]

Action for ME, the largest UK charity for ME/CFS, refers directly to the Chrysalis Effect and several other unproven therapies, and includes the following warning:

We urge you to view with extreme caution any approach which claims to offer a cure and/or significant improvement, has not been adequately researched and published with peer-review, and requires the payment of large sums of money.[2]

Advertising complaint[edit | edit source]

The UK's Advertising Standards Authority investigated a complaint about the Chrysalis Effect in 2014, and ruled that the current advertising must not make such claims again.[1]
