Overview

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFIDS) and fibromyalgia are illnesses characterized by a myriad of symptoms, which include severe long-term fatigue, poor sleep, achiness, "brain fog," increased thirst, bowel disorders, recurrent infections, and exhaustion. For those fatigue patients suffering from CFIDS and fibromyalgia, these disorders can be overwhelming - negatively impacting every facet of their lives. From Fatigued to Fantastic! is an authoritative and comprehensive resource guide for individuals who suffer from CFIDS and fibromyalgia. It explains, in easy-to-understand language, what these disorders are, what their symptoms are, where they may come from, and how you can eliminate them. Specific guidelines for diagnosis and treatment are clearly and concisely presented for both the patient and the physician. The book examines may factors that may be responsible for these conditions. It includes chapters on nutritional problems, adrenal insufficiency, hypothyroidism, hormonal imbalances, yeast overgrowth, sleep disorders, parasitic infections, and more. It also looks at the new and exciting studies being done on DHEA, magnesium, and malic acid. It provides instructions for physicians on the use of both natural and pharmacological supplements. There are also important resources offered, guiding you to doctors, patient support groups, supplies, and services. In addition to being one of this country's leading clinicians and researchers on effective treatments of CFIDS and fibromyalgia, author Jacob Teitelbaum, MD, has experienced and overcome these illnesses himself. From Fatigued to Fantastic!, therefore, not only reflects the cutting edge of scientific discovery, but provides sympathetic understanding from one who has experienced the debilitating effects of these problems firsthand.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
An unusually compassionate internist whose own medical education was interrupted by a bout of chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia, Teitelbaum has made these disorders his specialty. He offers straight talk about severe chronic fatigue states (SCFS). Sufferers who have been unable to locate physicians knowledgeable about diagnosing and treating these disorders will find this a gold mine, as may many doctors who have been baffled by such patients. Teitelbaum argues that a mixture of causes (including bowel disorder, hormonal imbalance and allergies) usually underlie SCFS, each of which can trigger additional problems. His approach is to break the vicious cycle of overwhelming fatigue, infections, "brain fog," achiness, poor sleep, allergies, anxiety and depression by treating them all simultaneously. His recommendations encompass prescription and over-the-counter drugs, dietary modifications, vitamin and mineral supplements, acupuncture, massage, chiropractic, herbs, simple home remedies and psychotherapy. While the breadth of his approach may cause some raised eyebrows among more conservative practitioners, extensive notes and bibliography, among other appendices, will answer many of their questions. (Dec.)
Library Journal
Written in easy-to-understand language, this resource guide describes the disorders listed in the subtitle, their symptoms, how they originate, and how to eliminate them. Teitelbaum, a leading clinician and researcher on treatments for Chronic Fatigue and Immune Dysfunction Syndrome (CFIDS) and fibromyalgia, lost a year of medical school to these illnesses. His list of possible causes includes nutritional problems, adrenal insufficiency, hypothyroidism, hormonal imbalances, yeast overgrowths, sleep disorders, and parasitic infections. Appendixes comprise half the book and probably provide the most valuable information. An extensive treatment protocol, a list of patient support groups, a list of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome specialists, and mail order sources for medications, supplements, and herbal remedies make this book an invaluable resource. Of the several recent books on this topic (Harris McIlwain and Debra Fulghum Bruce's The Fibromyalgia Handbook, LJ 11/1/96; Devin Starlaynyl and Mary Ellen Copeland's Fibromyalgia & Chronic Myofascial Pain Syndrome and Miryam Williamson's Fibromyalgia, both LJ 9/15/96), this gets the nod if you can purchase only one.-Janet Coggan, Univ. of Florida Libs., Gainesville
