by William. G. Crook. M.D.

 

From Library Journal
Crook ( The Yeast Connection , Professional Bks., 1985) has "written this book to serve as a general guide for persons with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and those who are working to help them." He has failed to achieve this goal on almost every point. While CFS may well be connected with food allergies and yeast, as Crook claims, he ignores many other causes of the condition and doesn't even consider any standard medical diagnostic tests or treatments. The book doesn't address even basic information on CFS very effectively and is poorly written and disorganized in content. Libraries would be much better off purchasing Katrina H. Berne's Running on Empty: Chronic Fatigue Immune Dysfunction Syndrome or Neenyah Ostrom's 50 Things You Should Know About the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Epidemic (both LJ 6/15/92).

Editor reviews

This is a considerable text that, despite the title, covers a lot of ground and looks at more than just the "yeast connection".

Dr. Crook puts forward the case that yeast plays a major role in CFS whilst also exploring other possible causes for the condition including viral infections, food sensitivities, and nutrient deficiencies. Many treatment options are explored including different forms of anti-fungal therapy along with nutritional therapy and the anti-viral drug Ampligen.

A major positive of this book is the fact that interspersed with Dr. Crooks commentary throughout are the opinions of a number of other prominent doctors who share what they have learned through working with those suffering from CFS and yeast related illness. These contributors include Dr. Jay Goldstein, Dr. Sidney Macdonald Baker, and Dr. Doris J. Rapp.

Despite being a little out of date now this book is still a worthy addition to any CFS patients library.
