The Chrysalis Effect advertises itself as a support program or treatment for ME/CFS. 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.
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.— Action for ME
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.
