    This has been mentioned here once before but there have been some delays in getting the book. The book is called Hope and Help For Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia by Dr Alison Bested with contributions by Alan Logan, Naturopathic Doctor and Russell Howe, Disability lawyer.

    I may be slightly biased since she is my Doctor but in my opinion,it is an excellent resource for patients and other physicians. Most of the book deals very comprehensively with treatment options from drugs to nutrition and supplements to exercise, stress management, alternative therapies.

    She also covers, of course, theories of the disease, investigations that should be done, including a basic list of blood work. The chapter on legal support is helpful as well.

    She is a caring and knowlegeable physician who has had success with her program. She does acknowledge that things are changing all the time. It is available on amazon and probably other places.
