Noted expert on ME/CFS, Dr. Kenneth J. Friedman, discusses what is known about the causes of the disease which afflicts over 28 million people around the world.
A sizable portion of the world’s population suffers from extraordinary levels of fatigue that are not made better by rest.
Many of those suffer prolonged and dramatic physical, as well as cognitive, collapses and widespread, seriously debilitating, pain which radically alters the course of their lives.
These are common symptoms for a wide variety of illnesses and ailments. It is no wonder then that people who suffer such afflictions may not always seek medical treatment and, when they do, frequently have their symptoms misdiagnosed and/or inappropriately dealt with.
Adding to the problem are overwhelming patient loads on physicians to say nothing of the economics of modern medical practice. The lack of clear biomarkers, which allow clinicians to quickly and easily identify abnormalities, seriously exacerbates the situation.
Given these circumstances, it is not surprising that those so afflicted often turn to a dizzying array of supplements and alternative medical practices to try to deal with their impairments. Often, at the cost of making matters worse instead of better.
We trust that you will find the resources presented herein helpful in dealing with the impact and consequences of these conditions.
