Item description for Conquering Chronic Fatigue: Answers to America's Most Misunderstood Epidemic by Jonathan Forester...
Overview Possibly the most under treated and misunderstood illness in America, the growing epidemic of chronic fatigue has more than 40 million sufferers. Written by a Christian medical doctor, Conquering Chronic Fatigue is a medical handbook that spells out the condition, diagnosis, symptoms and treatment of the four most common fatigue illnesses; chronic fatigue, hidden hypothyroidism, fibromyalgia and yeast overgrowth. Dr. Forester is quick to acknowledge that much remains to be done to conquer fatigue. However, it is equally true- and even more exciting- to realize that 80 to 90 percent of fatigue patients under Dr. Forester's care either improved or were put in remission of their fatigue! Are you sick and tired of feeling sick and tired? This book will help to get you back on the road to health and vitality!

Reviews - What do customers think about Conquering Chronic Fatigue: Answers to America's Most Misunderstood Epidemic?
Very helpful in diagnosis regarding what I am going thru! Dec 17, 2007
I'd like to comment on this book, because I have struggled thru the past year with Chronic Fatigue beyond what my normal monthly Pain Management Doctors can help. This book zero'd in on what I am suffering with and how to approach my Family Doctor, who simply wants to throw different Medicines at me with no regard to symptoms or outcome. I now have a Great resource to use to take to my Doctor to get the specific help that I need.
I am taken aback by the low ratings that this book has received regarding technical terms and correct diagnoses. I do not believe that some of these reviewers have been thru this and had to deal with the inability of the Main Stream Doctor to come close to helping people with Chronic Fatigue, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or Fybromyalgia.
Thanks for a very helpful book in my Journey to recovery.
Very Good Resource Jul 9, 2007
I bought this book because my wife has suffered from chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia for over seven years. There are really some great, new ideas in this effort. After we read it, we took it to her doctor at her next appointment. He felt there were some very good things brought out and has changed some of her medicine to the author's recommendations. We constantly read, looking for some relief, and have found this book among the most promising.

> I'm glad that they are feeling better they say that they have been found to have Lyme disease ( A: not hrd at all to diagnose - it's a very standard test when someone complains of fatigue and not hard to diagnose) but it also has nothing to to with CFS!
Lyme Disease IS difficult to diagnose and requires a skilled LLMD's clinical review along with supporting testing (Brain SPECT Scan, Lyme Titer, Lyme Western Blot, etc.)
The testing for Lyme Disease is extremely inadequate and many patients, including myself, are diagnosed soley on a clinical basis.
Furthermore, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is an "umbrella term" meaning that there are several underlying causes. Lyme Disease IS a cause of CFS, however, CFS is not Lyme Disease.
Not relevant to CFS Aug 25, 2005
This book in NOT helpful for people diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrom. In fact, it causes more harm than good by nurishing the myths and misconceptions that exist for this syndrom.
Misleading Info PS. RE:- hill6911AW Apr 21, 2005
Dr. Forrester mixes freely the tow terms CFS (which is very specific) and chronic fatigue, which as another reviwer has so eloquently pointed out is only a SYMPTOM and NOT the same as the very specific syndrome of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (often also referred to as CFIDS)! As far as the reviwer hill6911AW who says that they are a patient of doctor Forester while I'm glad that they are feeling better they say that they have been found to have Lyme disease ( A: not hrd at all to diagnose - it's a very standard test when someone complains of fatigue and not hard to diagnose) but it also has nothing to to with CFS! It IS a condition that can cuase someone to have fatigue on a chronic basis- but it isn't Chronic fatigue Syndrome! In fact it's one of the things that you rule out before diagnosing CFS. This book overall has confusing and muddled info. It would be best to pick almost ANY of the other books on CFS / CFIS or FIbro from this site rather than buting this. I would highly reccomend Jacon Teilbaulm's Book as a start.
