Overview

The CDC estimates that over half a million Americans currently suffer from chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), a disease which has defied researchers to discover a cause - or a cure. Authors Verrillo and Gellman, both long-term CFS patients, have now assembled a one-of-a-kind sourcebook for both patients and clinicians. This concise easy-to-understand reference offers the latest medical knowledge, sound advice, and hope to anyone who suffers from the disease. Combining a self-help manual, the personal histories of CFS sufferers, and a symptom and treatment dictionary, this comprehensive volume details every facet of the illness and thoroughly discusses every treatment currently available. From diagnosis to symptoms, from traditional and alternative therapies to coping strategies, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: A Treatment Guide is one of the only references on this disease written from the patient's perspective. As a physician, understanding the common symptoms of CFS sufferers may help you diagnose with better accuracy. Recommending this book to your patients could be their most important step to health, as it encourages them to take an active role in their recovery.
