As a survivor of chronic fatigue sydrome, Lynette Bassman understands that people wrestling with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome don't want political baloney about how misunderstood and hard to control their condition is. They want to feel good again. Research suggests that between one and 1.5 million Canadians suffer from FMS and CFS, with a female-to-male ratio of six to one. Bassman has written a comprehensive resource with practical advice that readers can use to get better. With this guide, they will learn to build a personalized treatment plan that really works, using any and all treatment resources. The book begins with an overview of FMS and CFS then evaluates most available therapies, both conventional and alternative. It even offers ways to overcome emotional problems that can accompany FMS and CFS. Readers assess their own symptoms and customize a treatment approach that meets their own personal symptom profile. Instead of "working against the system," readers will be able to use the treatment resources available to start feeling better and to stay that way.
