Let's begin with the good news. Research is clear that fibromyalgia, CFS, fatigue, and most kinds of pain are very treatable. The problem is that most physicians are simply not trained in any of these areas. So when your doctor says "I’m sorry there's nothing I can do for you," thank them for their honesty. And then go find someone who can. Even if that someone is YOU!
In this upcoming series, I'm going to show you how to get well, topic by topic, by applying the newest research and clinical experience, much of which you can do on your own. And for the other areas, finding a holistic physician can make all the difference.
So how do you start? As the title of this post says, "Knowledge Is Power!" There are lots of books on fatigue. But they generally take on only a piece of the larger puzzle, making the whole area quite confusing. On the other hand, creating complete solutions for the human energy crisis has been my key focus for the last 46 years, ever since post-viral CFS/FMS knocked me out of medical school and left me homeless.
I have a knack for taking complex issues and making them simple, followed by the simple steps needed to find your way forward to better health. By taking all that I've learned, simplifying it, and organizing it for you in the newest edition of my book From Fatigued to Fantastic! (Penguin/Avery 2021), I've now made this information easily available to you. This new 4th edition comes with a blue cover. If you have the green cover edition, that's all you need. But if you have the old yellow or red cover edition, or no addition at all, this book will Rock Your World. From Fatigued to Fantastic! has been the best-selling and most comprehensive book of all time on helping people recover from the human energy crisis and all its related issues of poor sleep, "brain fog," and widespread achiness.
Got brain fog and worried the book might be too overwhelming? I've taken care of that for you in this new edition by adding a "Brain Fog Friendly Summary" to begin each section. These summarize the key points from the section to make it easier for you to recognize if the condition being discussed applies to you and, if so, how to recover from it. In fact, you can just skim through the Brain Fog Friendly summaries and get most of what you need to know in just an hour. That allows you to get the gist of the book while devoting more time for in-depth reading into the specific topics that concern you most (e.g., adrenal, sensitive to everything, etc.).
Meanwhile, I’m going to go through the key chapters of the book section by section in this upcoming newsletter series.
It’s time for everyone to get well. NOW!
Love and blessings,
