This book is jam-packed with information for treating the multiple dysfunctions found in Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia and Lyme Disease. It provides more insights on how to treat the latter two conditions than any other book I have read. What's even more impressive, it presents perspectives from a multitude of experts, so that a well-rounded approach to healing can be formulated.

I had to read this book several times to absorb all of the information in it and gained many valuable insights from it.

That said, I found the information on Lyme Disease to be sorely lacking and the section on Lyme to be rather small. Also, in many cases, CFIDS, Fibromyalgia ARE actually manifestations of Lyme Disease, and I don't recall the book emphasizing this.

Granted, much information about how to treat Lyme has just recently emerged and this information may have not been available at the time that this book was published, yet I believe that a more in-depth discussion of Lyme would have been appropriate.

Overall, however, this book is an excellent source of information for anyone wanting to learn about the aforementioned conditions and how to manage them.

Holy Smokes! I have been looking for the answers to my environmental illness/fybromyalgia problems for nearly 3 years, and have just been diagnosed with Lyme Disease as well. The answers to my remaining questions were found IN THIS ONE BOOK!

The authors have made sure to show pictures, diagrams, etc., so even the lay person can understand where certain body parts reside and how they do or do not work, depending on your situation. I consider myself to be reasonably well-informed on the subjects covered in Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia and Lyme Disease; and I have been able to help many others who sufferer with these diseases. Yet I have NEVER seen such a wonderful resource all in one place before! If you have these health problems, don't pass this one by! There is a lot you can do for yourself without having to damage your body/liver further with just massive doses of heavy-duty allopathic meds. :-):-)

Overall it is very informative. However, it was lacking in areas such as how to manage low blood pressure which is found in 70% of chronic fatigue patients. In fact, the tilt test which is used by the Social Security Administration (for disability claims)as a marker for the syndrome is never mentioned (my blood pressure dropped to 56/33 during this test). Dr. Cheney and Dr. Bell as well as other leading doctors/researchers who were/are the pioneers in identifying and treating CFS/FMS have protocols for low bp which would be helpful to CFS patients. There is little attention paid to the real leaders in this field. Although Teitelbaum, Chaitow, and Lapp were mentioned, other leaders were forgotten. There is serious research being done (and findings) at the University of Oregon and University of Miami that was totally neglected. In place of referencing these leading doctors, physicians like Dr. Haimes are referenced who is skilled with hgh therapy for anti-aging but who is not very knowledgeable with CFS or Fibromylagia nor does he claim to specialize in CFS/FMS treatments (the two syndromes I suffer with and subjects of this book). So readers have to take care not to use these physician references in the book as referrals to doctors who subscribe to the protocols/insights of this book.

This is the best book I have ever found on chronic fatigue syndrome. It has treatments, possible causes, and names and addresses of doctors who specialize in the treatment. There is a reference to a probable link to the polio virus, and polio innoculations, that I never heard of before. After reading this link, I googled the link to polio virus, and found more information about research on the subject, that goes back many years, but has been ignored, or covered up.
Excellent book, and as usual excellent price and service from Amazon.
