From Fatigued to Fantastic!

The third edition of Dr. Joseph Teitelbaum's bestselling book 'From Fatigued to Fantastic!' was released recently. Dr. Teitelbaum is one of the best known chronic catigue syndrome and fibromyalgia specialists and this title is basically all of his knowledge and experience

laid down on paper.


I have long been the proud owner of a copy of the second edition of this book and it is without a doubt the single book that has helped me most with my own CFS. Dr. Teitelbaum understands that patients with these conditions can't wait for a "magic bullet" cure (if there will ever be one!) so provides us with the many tools available now to improve our health and our lives.

The book takes an unbiased viewpoint and explains to the reader both the conventional/drug treatments AND the alternative/natural alternatives available to treat specific problems and symptoms.

Dr. Teitelbaum has developed a treatment program for CFS and fibromyalgia that can boast being the only such program proven effective by a proper research study, the results of which are included in the book as an appendix.

The structure of the book follows the main components of Dr. Teitelbaum's SHIN protocol, explaining in turn how to deal with sleep problems, hormone imbalances, infections, and nutritional deficiencies. Of course there are also substantial chapters dedicated to pain management and increasing energy levels as well as sections on a host of other issues.

The third edition has added new sections including a discussion the latest studies concerning increasing energy with specialized nutrients such as Ribose; information on new antiviral treatments such as Nexavir and Valcyte; and updated information concerning sleep apnea treatment.

Also included are sections discussing findings and treatments from other doctors and researchers working with CFS and fibromyalgia. These sections include an explanation of the Shoemaker protocol, for detection of Lyme disease and other neurotoxic illnesses, and their treatment with Cholestyramine fatigue syndrome. There is also a look at the important work done by Dr. Martin Pall who has been instrumental in unravelling the role of oxidative stress and excessive nitric oxide production in CFS, fibromyalgia and other related conditions.

Finally the third edition provides more information to help patients win disability claims and improve their lives in areas outside of specific medical treatment.

With these additions, Dr. Teitelbaum is sure to have improved upon what was already a must have book for all CFS and fibromyalgia patients who want to take an active role in the treatment of their illness.

  • Hi,

    Welcome to the site. I hope you find the information and resources useful.

    If your DHEA-S is low that certainly be a possible explanation for symptoms including depression, fatigue and intolerance to stress. Exactly what DHEA does and how it works is still being studied but it does seem to help many with these problems and give a general sense of well-being - particularly in people in which it is measured to be low. I too have taken DHEA after having low results on more than one occassion and found it to be a great help. For me it started to work within a week and because it is a steroid hormone the effects increase the longer you take it. I'd certainly expect you to notice a difference within a couple of weeks. Do remember that DHEA being a steroid hormone has the potential for side-effects. 5mg/day is a sensible dose but do discuss these with your doctor.

    I'm not familiar with 'tyro-trypt' but it sounds like it would be a nutritional supplement containing the amino acids tyrosine and tryptophan/5-HTP? If so these nutrients are the building blocks from which important energy and mood boosting neurotransmitters (dopamine, norepinephrine, serotonin) are made in the body. This should therefore have complementary effects to the DHEA and help your symptoms but may take a little longer to work.

    Good luck to you!
