SYNOPSIS

Dr Michael Midgley, Chairman of Overton Studios Trust, specialises in the holistic healing of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia. He is available as a guest speaker throughout the UK . His talks are 'interactive'. This means that he encourages members of his audience to interrupt frequently to ask questions, disagree with him, relate a personal experience and so on.

He speaks under the umbrella heading of 'Therapeutic Thinking' and has two programmes available, namely 'Body-management' and 'Mind-management'. These can be provided as single items on separate occasions or combined during a single meeting.

Titles
1. 'The Body-management of ME'
The application of 'Therapeutic Thinking' to the body-management of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia.

Dr Midgley talks about ME in general and the practical 'body-management' strategy which he used to overcome ME in his own case. He encourages a simultaneous in-depth interactive discussion. This meeting usually lasts for 2 to 3 hours, depending upon the enthusiasm of the audience.

Dr Midgley's book - 'A Life Worth Living' - (Third Edition)- will be available at the meeting at 7.50 per copy. This book describes the adventures of a doctor who lived with ME for over 35 years and now has this condition thoroughly under control, as a result of his own efforts.

2. 'The Mind-management of ME'
In this talk Dr Midgley confronts the application of 'Therapeutic Thinking' to the mind-management of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia. Medical science has conclusively demonstrated that peaceful, loving, caring, forgiving thinking strengthens the immune system and heals ME at a biochemical and a cellular level.

He also screens a video entitled: 'The Message of the Crucifixion'. This video uses the crucifixion of Jesus as an extreme example of physical suffering, attempts to derive the meaning of such suffering and shows that a comforting and healing message can be derived from the crucifixion. Dr Midgley believes that physical suffering can be effectively transcended, in a practical way, by the sufferer using the power of his or her own mind.

The subject matter of this talk is also treated in an in-depth interactive manner and again lasts for between 2 and 3 hours, depending upon the enthusiasm of the audience.

The video, together with its companion book, entitled - 'The Message of the Crucifixion' - will be available at this meeting at 20 per copy, in both VHS Cassette and DVD formats.

The video - 'Miracles, Medicine and ME' - will also be available at this meeting at 30 per copy, in both VHS Cassette and DVD formats.

3. Talk by a carer
Mrs Jane Midgley, M.Sc., a Chartered Psychologist and Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society, is also available to give: 'A Talk for ME Carers'
