it could be helpful to try FIRS. Dr. William Rea is a long time environmental medicine doc who recommends infrared sauna treatments for detoxification for chemically sensitive patients.
mainstream medical doctors are not concerned with the etiology of fms/cfg. they want to manage the symptoms. but if you or your doc believe that the cause may be environmental or toxicity related then it would be worthwhile to try firs sauna sessions.
also be careful of the sauna or clinic you choose. i know of one case where the sauna was emitting formaldehyde because there was hidden particle board used in the construction of the sauna that was out gassing during the session! how sad.
