Evaluating and Treating Hormonal Disorders in CFS/fibromyalgia

At this time we will proceed to discuss how effectively treat Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia. Because of the hypothalamic suppression, effective treatment falls into four broad categories. These include:

2) Treat disordered sleep
3) Treat hormonal deficiencies and

H.) and its associated low blood pressure, coagulation problems, etc. also may benefit from being treated. These are all discussed at length in my book "From Fatigued to Fantastic". We will, however, focus on these four key areas for now.Our placebo-controlled study (see the full text at www.endfatigue.com) proves that when these 4 areas are aggressively looked for and treated, 91% of patients with CFS/Fibromyalgia improve!
