Review By: Claire (Sleepydust Editor) & Amazon readers

This was the first book I ever bought on PVFS/CFS and was a godsend.

I didn’t’ realise that there were others out there that felt just like I did – that there was advice I could follow and treatments I could look into…

…so this book was a real breath of fresh air! SYMPTOM CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME

The author is a doctor and was a CFS/M.E. sufferer herself for over 10 years, and managed to recover from it.

She tells you all about CFS/M.E. and gives you advice on:

  • exercise
  • rest and relaxation
  • nutrition and supplements
  • coping with a change of lifestyle
  • managing depression
  • ME and women

“The initial chapters focus on the history and nature of the illness and the way it has been perceived by the public and the medical profession.

Guidelines for diagnosis and similar conditions which need to be eliminated before a diagnosis of ME can be made are provided throughout the first four chapters. Chapter 3, ‘ME, CFS, and Psychiatry’ provides a clear look at the psychological problems of M.E. and no excuse for a misdiagnosis of M.E. as primary depression.

The middle section of the book is devoted to managing the illness, with chapters on rest and sleep (absolutely vital), exercise, stress and meditation, depression and anxiety.

Starting with Chapter 10, the author looks at methods of treatment: both those of conventional medicine and alternative practices.One chapter is devoted to Candida Albicans, a common secondary infection in people with CFS/M.E..

Another chapter is devoted to diet and nutrition (many CFS/M.E. sufferers suffer from deficiencies in vitamins and minerals).

The final chapters of the book focus on 'specialty issues':

  • M.E. in children
  • special problems for women with M.E.
  • caring and relationships
  • disability and benefits
  • mobility aids
  • and so forth.

Although the section on benefits and some of the details of the chapter on practical problems are geared specifically for the ME sufferer or carer living in the UK, the rest of the book applies to sufferers and carers everywhere.”
