    I picked up a copy of a new release book from my local library called "The LDN Book" edited by Linda Elsegood.

    I was interested in this book's chapter on IBD but it also has an informative chapter about CFS and FM which outlined in a very succinct manner, the difficulty most of those with CFS have in conveying the symptom set to doctors and why doctors then can have trouble getting a grasp of it all, for which reason the editor suggests the book to be a resource to show to your medical practitioner as a quick “Idiots type guide” to CFS.

    It's put out by the LDN Research Trust so it's espousing the benefits of low dose naltrexone but there is more emphasis in the CFS chapter about the basic underlying issues rather than just promoting the use of LDN as a treatment.

    You can read the whole chapter online by googling the phrase - cfs and fm result in an individual being "stuck" in a th-2 dominant state

    The book also covers MS and Lupus, Restless Leg Syndrome, Depression, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Cancer as well as a very enlightening chapter on Thyroid Disorders.
