CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME AND FIBROMYALGIA06/23/03
Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum had to drop out of medical school when he contracted CFS/fibromyalgia. Although he recovered enough to resume training a year later, symptoms persisted for many years. Being an avid reader of scientific medical literature, he stumbled over many studies that he had not been told about in medical school. Applying this research, he began to treat patients with nutritional and herbal therapies, hormonal support when clinically indicated (despite technically normal blood tests), anti-infectious treatments (including antifungals), physical therapy measures, and sleep support. Much to his surprise, these previously untreatable patients started to get well. His book From Fatigued to Fantastic examines many factors that may be responsible for the conditions of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFIDS) and fibromyalgia. It includes chapters on nutritional problems, adrenal insufficiency, hypothyroidism, hormonal imbalances, yeast overgrowth, sleep disorders, parasitic infections, and more. It also teaches you and your doctor how to use both natural and prescription therapies to get you well.
