Due to inappropriate medical advice leading to sustained overexertion (which causes serious and permanent bodily damage in M.E.), Jodi's illness quickly went from moderate to extremely severe. By 1999 she was capable of less than even 5% of her pre-illness activity level.

Severe M.E. patient from the Netherlands Ingeborg Geuijen has sadly passed away this month. Ingeborg was one of the very first people with M.E.

“The single biggest factor determining recovery and remission from Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.) at this point is undoubtedly appropriate rest in the early and/or severe stages of the illness.

Jodi Bassett

“Some people are like Slinkies. They aren't really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.”
Patricia Briggs, Iron Kissed

“Comparing the bioavailability of all other oral vitamin C delivery with your oral liposomal delivery is like comparing a squirt gun to a fire hose.

Thomas E. Levy, Primal Panacea
