"Why Am I So Exhausted ? "
ISBN - 978-1-78161-023-7
This book,published in 2013 is based on Martin Budd's 40+ years of successfully treating
patients with chronic fatigue syndrome.
Defines CFS broadly and simply as long-term unexplained fatigue rather than worrying
about exact labels.
Based on naturopathic principles:
Diagnosis and treatment must take into account all aspects of the individual sufferer.
In particular,blood test results should be interpreted in the light of the individual's
symptons and history.
Where possible,treatment should be based on diet and nutritional supplements.
Explains that chronic fatigue is very rarely caused by a single disease,but by several,
generally interrelated health problems.
Shows how the multiple causes can be identified and treated.
Describes how the physical effects of long-term stress can lead to health problems
and how this can result in sufferer's symptons being interpreted as 'all in the mind'.
Includes detailed patient case histories that show how complex chronic fatigue
syndrome can be.
