Facing and Fighting Fatigue: A Practical Approach

Facing and Fighting Fatigue: A Practical Approach discusses improving your sleep, finding understanding and sympathetic doctors, self-help techniques for managing stress, alternative medicines and more.

Among the book's many accolades:

'A surprising thing often occurs when doctors cannot hold an abnormal test result in their hands: they tend to think that there is nothing wrong with the patient.' How true this statement proves for many fatigue sufferers! For the ten percent of the population who have a frequent problem with fatigue, Natelson offers a fact-based approach to treatment while being open to nonharmful, alternative therapies, and he advocates a 'whole person' approach in this well-documented guide.
