Nutritional Balancing Science

Over the past 3 years I have trialled all available treatments I have come across for ME/CFS. Steadily over time I became more and more unwell which is why I have not blogged for such a long time. After another winter of dispair and loss of hope I decided to do a 'HOUSE' on myself and I laid out my results across my bedroom floor and got a whiteboard for my symptoms and findings. After hours of coming across the same theories and options I came across something new. Pages and pages of well written articles by a doctor from what I could see grasps the concepts that the illness is the breakdown of not single body parts but an entire body failure requiring a holistic approach to rebuild the entire bodies working structure. I have now been on the treatment for 4 months, since the turn of the year. I have had to build up the treatment extremely slowly because my body has become so sensitive, experienced by a few nasty moments of healing too quickly. Already I have improved to a level where the pain and discomfort is much less, my understanding of my symptoms is much higher, and I see a course that hopefully will lead to firstly no pain and secondly the ability to start doing small social activities later this year. A small, and it is only small at this stage beam of light has been seen, after such a long period of what I can only describe as hell. It must be said it has not been plain sailing. The treatment has been extremely hard work and painful but over time it is now beginning to calm. I am so greatful to Dr Wilson for all his research and hard work into nutritional balancing science and am gaining faith in his approach more very day.


  1. Really good to hear from you Oliver, I hope you might go into more detail about the treatment as you continue.

    I've been ill with M.E for more than 15 years, most of the time maintaining a largely functional life, but the last couple of years have worsened (possibly due to stress & personal problems as much as anything)& am pretty much bedridden 5 days a week now. Have given up on any treatments as all seemed to turn out dead ends. Keep hoping XMRV is going to turn out to be the answer, but even if it is, treatment is realistically going to be years down the road.

    So, here I lie, like millions of others, waiting.

  2. My view is even if a retrovirus is a reason or assists in becoming unwell, treating this will not undo the state the body has changed into. It may help not falling unwell again but a non drug treatment will only cure this, which the medical world will never be able to offer in my view.

  3. Thought I'd add that I've stopped going to the Breakspear. I tried everything they offered but nothing worked. After now being on my new program I think the problem is the Breakspear don't put the whole illness together and only try fix individual problems which won't cure with the problems reoccurring. I'd recommend Dr Wilsons Nutritional Balancung Science over the Breakspear any day (and it's insanely cheaper!)

  4. Just found your blog and am wondering how you are doing almost a year after starting the nutritional balancing program? I recently started it too and would love to hear an update. For many people I hear it takes a long time to see improvements. Thanks


  5. RIP Oliver. I hope someone picks up your good work. You're with the Angels now

  6. Oliver's blog will be shut down in a week or so. Thank you for following his blog and being part of his online community of friends.

  7. Becky, please e-mail the National CFIDS Foundation so that, with more information, Oliver will not be forgotten and we can add him to our Memorial List ( Thank you.

  8. RIP Oliver. I'm so sad and I'm so sorry there wasn't a treatment for you.

    I hope you're enjoying normality without pain and frustration.

    I won't forget your enthusiasm for leaving no stone unturned in your quest for relief of this tourture.

    I'll always been thinking of you Ollie.

    My thoughts are with your family.

  9. RIP Oliver. I was so sad to hear that this illness had beaten you, but I also really understood how it did. I hope so very much that you are in a peaceful pain free place - like you deserve.

    Well done for all your hard work!!!!

    You won't be forgotten xx

    My thoughts are very much with your family at this time...

  10. I had communicated with Olli several times via an XMRV group. We discussed various aspects of treatment and I found him to be a highly intelligent, well-balanced and motivated individual. I am shocked to hear of his death. It shows how devastating ME really is. That a guy like this, with so much potential, chose to kill himself rather than endure the struggle. I hope that he has finally gained the peace that he must have been seeking so desperately. My thoughts are with his family and friends and the 250,000 other ME sufferers in the UK (myself included) who are still enduring the struggle x
