One of the most common problems leading people to the doctor's office is fatigue. Dr, Sarah Myhill, a veteran clinical physician with over thirty years experience treating patients, has spent years studying the relationship between chronic fatigue and mitochondrial malfunction. In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Myhill examines the essential role our mitochondria play in the production and management of energy at the cell level and why it is key to understanding and overcoming Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and the inflammation that often accompanies it: Myaigic Encephalitis (ME). She explains the importance of healthy mitochondria, how we can assess how well they are functioning, what we can do to keep them healthy, and how to restore them if problems arise. Dr. Myhill reviews the new research and clinical findings on this debilitating disease-one that is too often dismissed by medical professionals as "all in the head"-and includes insights on why CFS/ME is the most poorly treated condition in Western medicine. She explains the role of the gut; the causes of inflammation including allergy autoimmunity, Lyme disease, and other chronic infections; how to reprogram the immune system; and more. Myhill's approach offers those suffering from CFS/ME a comprehensive and much needed roadmap to recovery. Book jacket.
