A Chronic Fatigue Syndrome sufferer documents his fascinating healing adventure

An invaluable source of guidance and wisdom for anyone struggling with their health, facing a challenge that feels insurmountable, or searching for deeper meaning in their life, this book provides a wealth of information about healing mind, body, and soul. Alex Howard was a normal, happy teenager until just before his 16th birthday, when he began to experience strange, unexplained physical symptoms. In time he was diagnosed with myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), also known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, a severe illness that the medical profession has yet to offer an explanation or cure for. After spending two years bed-bound and developing clinical depression, Alex committed himself to finding a cure and returning himself to health and happiness. In this updated second edition, Alex shares the story of his ongoing journey since the first edition of Why Me? was published, including his adventures setting up an award-winning clinic specializing in ME which has now treated more than 5,000 patients. A detailed resource section includes transcripts of interviews with Alex and the clinic's other two directors, covering topics such as why orthodox medicine is so limited in treating ME, the clinic's model of ME, the three stages of the illness, explanations of their treatments, and tips that sufferers can follow.
