Little is known about distant healing, an alternative treatment. Patients suffering from multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS), chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), or functional memory disorder (FMD), who have no clear treatment option are controlled trial of distant healing in 400 patients. They will be randomised to
a) receive healing and know this,
b) receive healing without knowing,
c) Wait and know this and
d) wait without knowing. Study target will be health related quality of life (SF36) after 6 months of treatment/waiting. Patients will be enrolled by environmental clinics and treated by healers all over Europe. We thereby expect to provide information for an evidence-based decision of regulatory and reimbursing authorities.
