Review Detail

 
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and the Yeast Connection (Illustrated)
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Written by Maff     July 19, 2007    
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Despite being a little out of date now this book is still a worthy addition to any CFS patients library.
