Order Avalanche

IMG_1077Orders are flying in thick and fast which makes me think that the old method of emails back and forth between us was putting a lot of people off buying through Vegepa Club.

I don’t really blame them as the process was hardly ME friendly to say the least!

I’m relieved to know that more people who would have ordered through Vegepa Club in the past can now do so with ease.

You’ll find it quicker and easier the next time you order as you’ll not have to re-Register.  Just click the Green ORDER NOW Button, select your country, pop in your password and away you go!

The whole ordering process should take less than 5 minutes (even with brainfog!)

Yet another obstacle for ME!

images-1I have been investigated by the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) and The Committee of Advertising Practice (CAP) following a Complaint lodged by one of our Members.

The Member, (now unsubscribed), was upset by my phrase “best wishes for your journey towards recovery” as she felt that I was assuming that she was in recovery but, in fact, felt she was not “recovering or anywhere near it.”  This led her to lodge the Complaint which brought me to the attention of the ASA and CAP.

It seems I have been infringing the UK Code of Non-Broadcast Advertising, Sales Promotions and Direct Marketing, notably the Rule which states that “Mentioning any medical condition in relation to a product, is likely to imply that the product can treat that condition”.

All Food Supplement claims re health and nutrition are strictly regulated by very specific EU Regulations and the field is a quagmire!

The EU Regulations, at present, regarding Fish Oils is particularly negative:  “because on the basis of the scientific evidence assessed, claimed effect for this food supplement has not been substantiated.”

Despite vehemently fighting our corner, I’ve had to comply by removing all references to ME from my website other than mentioning that the purchasing of Vegepa, via The Private Vegepa Club, aka The Vegepa for ME Scheme, contributes towards crucial fund raising for Biomedical Research into ME.

The ASA and CAP have now come to an Informal Resolution and I have amended copy on my website accordingly.

Because of this, you may find that references to the supplement and the medical condition are missing in places where you might, logically, expect to find them!

Because of this, I managed to secure permission to sell Vegepa to anyone and I am no longer restricted to any one particular condition, which may, ironically, increase our donations to ME Research as, hopefully, our numbers will swell!


Helping more of you


crowd-reachingI am now allowed to sell to anyone at all, regardless of their condition – I’m no longer limited to ME as I was in the past but our donations still go to crucial BIOMEDICAL research into ME. See the Medical Conditions Tab on the Home Page for egs. of other conditions which are known to benefit from Vegepa.


5565913-breaking-news-headline-on-a-mock-up-newspaperThe road to running The Private Vegepa Club (formerly known as the Vegepa for ME Scheme, the Private Vegepa Club and now simply Vegepa Club!) has constantly been beset with obstacles throughout its 7 years!

In Sept, 2013 we had 2 very significant hurdles to go through:-

The 1st of them, (the smaller) I greatly welcome and have been looking forward to for years,

The 2nd is an enormous stumbling block, which was firmly placed in my way, very much against my wishes, leaving me no option but to somehow summon up the energy and enthusiasm to it tackle head on.



 So you can now feel free to pass on your Vegepa recommendation to any one you know, whether they have ME or not!

Rest is Best!



Dear “Worried”,
I’ve absolutely no way of knowing how severe your illness is or how long you’ve been suffering.  I don’t know your age or your circumstances…

What I read though is that your job may be in the balance unless you can achieve some very tangible improvement in your health.

Losing your job may not be the horror you envisage – a wrench yes but not necessarily a bad thing for you.  If it were to come to it, and you can no longer work, I would tell you that it may be a blessing in disguise, as far as your health is concerned.

We all cling, with desperation, to what is and has been our normal life but with your illness, “normal” goes out the window.  The illness is no respecter of dates, red letter days, Monday mornings, birthdays, Christmas, etc.  It will rob you of many of these for a long time.

Life will change considerably, maybe it has already.  The thing is, you don’t like where you are at the moment, it’s really scary and very possibly lonely, but you’ve got to do all you can to get to a better place, where your health is no longer a hindrance to what you want to achieve, no longer a source of constant negativity and disappointment.

Being forced, or better still, choosing to give up your job will allow you the time and the environment everyday with which to nurture yourself, physically and emotionally, which will go a long way towards your recovery.

Work, stress, travel, timekeeping, running a home, having a social life, family commitments, etc. etc. are all preventing your body from healing itself, which is what it desperately needs.  It’s crying out to you that something’s very wrong and it’s begging you, with all too frequent, painful reminders, that you’ve got to take care of yourself in a positive way.

Forcing yourself to keep to work timetables and weekdays, doing far too much at the weekends just because it is the weekend, is a pattern which will simply make your illness worse and/or endure for longer.

It’s a desperately sad truth to accept but when you finally recognise that you’ve got to take on the responsibility of helping yourself recover in the best possible way, and that that may mean no longer working, then you’ll be on the road to eventually getting back your life, or to starting an exciting new one.  Of course, stopping work brings with it the stress of not having the income any longer but there are benefits out there to help you and, if you really take pacing and rest seriously, your expenditure will be cut greatly.  The MEA is a good source of information about Benefits

You WILL recover, but only if you look after yourself, nourish yourself, pace yourself, and be kind to yourself.

3 Types of Vegepa

Vegepa - 60 capsules per box

Signs of Recovery


road-to-recovery-good-image-for-healthcare-or-financial-reYou are on the road to recovery from our wretched ME when you, or those close to you, notice that your symptoms have become less grave AND that your relapses are less frequent AND that they are of shorter duration.

It may still be a slow haul and no one knows how long it will take to get completely better, but it is a very favourable sign!



Be kind to yourself and don’t be afraid of making this your Mantra:


I always cringe when I set out the following advice as I am not medically qualified but I do have far too much experience in the illness not to know what I’m talking about.

I hope this helps and doesn’t sound like I’m preaching…

I do so hate to read that a Member is in such a bad way at the moment. It brings back all those sad and frustrated emotions which I know only too well.

Just as important as your supplement, in my opinion, is Pacing.

Lying in a dark room, at your worst, presents no problem to Pacing – you can’t do anything so you’re not tempted to!!

We (my daughter and I) started off, right at the beginning when we were learning what it was all about, and later, when we needed to go back to basics, by giving every little “activity” a score out of 20. The higher the score, the more tiring. (Talking on the phone = 8, showering = 7, eating downstairs at the table = 12, reading for 10 minutes = 10). It’s different for each person.

After a few weeks we realised that doing more than 20 per day lead to a relapse which could last for days or even weeks when she was so very bad.

We soon worked out that using eg. 15 a day kept my daughter on an even keel, no great highs or lows but stable and even able to lead some sort of minimalist life whilst not getting worse or suffering with too much pain, exhaustion, brain fog, etc.

After a couple of months, the scores had to be reduced for each activity as they weren’t as onerous as before, and we could introduce welcome new ones to throw into the pot.

All this was painstakingly slow, depressingly introspective and isolating but it did get us there in the end.

Think of Pacing like a bank account – never use more energy than you have in the bank or you’ll go into the red and suffer from it. Only spend a max of 80% of what you have in the bank so you have some left over for the next day, or better still, the day after next.

Remember that (one of the tell tale symptoms) with the illness, exertion on Day A. isn’t usually “paid for” until Day C.  (post-exertional malaise).

That way you’ll always have a reserve and be able to build up a bit more reserve (on your rest day/s) than the minimum required of 20% .

Also, only set yourself realistic goals so you’re neither disappointed at “failing” nor trying to burn the candle at both ends.

This isn’t a defeatist attitude, quite the opposite! Cheat and therefore win against ME – trick ME into thinking it’s winning but all the while you’re playing the long game and will win in the end.
