The whole site is great, they have alot of the treatments listed for ME/CFS including neural therapy which I am interested in, I don't see Ampliegin there now and know someone who is doing a course of it. you can subscribe and they have a page on facebook as well, most of the ME.CFS organizations do . There is a ning site as well google 'CFS knowledge center ning;', and people from all over the world are there
