(Dr. Lieberman is self-referred to the list. His comments:
"Currently in practice for over 17 years, has helped numerous people with FM, ME/CFS. His protocol is without the use of any pharmaceuticals. The keys to his successes with these cases hinges on the testing methods and information gathering used, and his first premise: which is that there is no one cause, nor one solution for any individuals who have been diagnosed with FM, ME/CFS, or have independently come to the conclusion that FM, ME/CFS is what they have.

"Solutions will utilize appropriate chiropractic techniques with adjunctive Designed Clinical Nutrition, when necessary. Patients can notice substantial results within a 4 week timeframe; some take less time, while others may take more. The results are not just temporary, they are lasting. The most non-invasive and effective program we have seen.")
