This book helped me to understand how Fibromyalgia affects one of my family members. There was little over-your-head talk, though you can delve as deeply as you wish into the medical explanations. The chapter lay-outs are easy to use as reference and the information pertinent.

I have read a lot of literature on CFS/ME and, for the most part, tried to get through some that was just too technical. This book is made for the average Joe who wants specifics in plain English. I haven't read through the whole book yet, but I did the "peak inside" before buying and there were quite a few pages previewed from different sections. They were all to my liking and I knew it was something I had to read, especially since it covers some much needed topics that other books on the subject don't take into consideration. As luck would have it, I've been waiting 2 1/2 years to see a specialist to diagnose my CFS and recently I was able to get an appointment with the author, Dr. Alison Bested. She has devoted her practice to CFS and Fibromyalgia and is driven to help the CFS/Fibro community in many different ways. She is one of Ontario's best, if not one of Canada's best CFS/Fibro specialists. Dr. Bested is a very caring, down-to-earth individual who actually takes the time to listen to her patients' concerns and, because of this, she can really relate to and fully understand all aspects of these debilitating illnesses, which definitely can be seen in her writings. In other words, she really know her stuff and can easily relay her insight and findings to her readers. KUDOS!

'Hope and Help for Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia' is a guiding light in the gloomy and often confusing world of chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia (CFS/FM). As someone afflicted by the often misunderstood condition of chronic fatigue syndrome I can attest to the urgent need for the vital information found in this book.

Written in a straightforward yet caring tone, the authors are uniquely able to covey the latest scientific theories and concepts using clear and jargon-free language. Dr. Alison C. Bested begins the book by knowledgably shedding light on these 'invisible' epidemics. She paints a vivid portrayal of the debilitating symptoms behind the sometimes misleading names, reveals how doctors can make a diagnosis using modern case definitions and delves into the causes of chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia, thoroughly explaining the latest scientific theories.

Having laid the foundational understanding of CFS/FM the authors follow a logical progression toward treatment of the conditions. Together, Dr. Bested and Dr. Alan C. Logan, ND cover the gamut of treatments and protocols including: energy conservation, sleep hygiene, nutritional support, dietary supplements and herbs, mind-body medicine, complimentary therapies and pharmaceutical treatments. Every treatment is backed by the latest scientific research and more than a decade of Dr. Bested's own clinical experience.

A contribution by Russell Howe, an attorney who specializes in medical disability cases, provides expert advice on the legal issues surrounding CFS/FM. Mr. Howe touches on such critical points as: how to find a lawyer, what to look for in a good lawyer, and understanding disability coverage.
