Theory[edit | edit source]

Evidence in ME/CFS[edit | edit source]

A small placebo-controlled randomized clinical trial by Rodriguez et al. (2020) of moderate and severe patients with ME/CFS found that a 30% reduction in symptoms was achieved after 8 weeks of INMEST treatment; however the fatigue level of patients did not change.[1] The trial used patients who fulfilled the Canadian Consensus Criteria.[1] Dr Jan-Erik Juto, one of the authors of Rodriguez et al. (2020), is a co-founder and stakeholder of Albilion Medical Systems AB, who developed INMEST.
