Your Symptoms Are Real
Publication Date: 2007-10-26
Praise for Your Symptoms Are Real "Thank God for this book. It provides the help that millions of Americans with 'silent illnesses' like chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia have been waiting for. Dr. Natelson is a brilliant and compassionate clinician who covers the best treatments that medical science has to offer, along with a thorough consideration of complementary approaches. Short of cloning him, this book offers the specific help you need to work in partnership with your own physician." --Joan Borysenko, Ph.D., author of Minding the Body, Mending the Mind "Natelson is the kind of doctor every patient is looking for: smart, thoughtful, empathetic, and supportive. Reading Your Symptoms Are Real is the next best thing to having a world-renowned specialist managing your case." --Charles W. Lapp, M.D., Director of the Hunter-Hopkins Center and Assistant Consulting Professor at Duke University Medical Center "Do not throw up your hands and give up when one doctor after another tells you there is nothing wrong with you--instead, read this book! Benjamin Natelson is the person you have been looking for to guide you on your path to recovery." --Sandra Blakeslee, coauthor of The Body Has a Mind of Its Own "Natelson superbly incorporates research studies, clinical trials (even on drugs in development), and patient case reports in this book. If you are battling pain and fatigue symptoms but your tests are all normal, you will enjoy reading Natelson's pro-patient approach to explaining the real nature of your illness, his recommended treatment approaches, and how to cope with everything that is going on in your life." --Kristin Thorson, editor of the Fibromyalgia Network and President of the American Fibromyalgia Syndrome Association

Understanding New, Resurgent, and Resistant Diseases
Publication Date: 2007-05-01
"Although medicine and sanitation in modernized countries are more advanced than ever, over the past three decades we have seen the emergence of some 30 new diseases, such as HIV, SARS, and Ebola. Lyme Disease, hepatitis C, Legionnaires' Disease, and even Jacob-Creutzfeld, the human form of a disorder we know as "Mad Cow," have made headlines. We are also facing a resurgence of diseases once thought nearly eradicated, including tuberculosis and smallpox, and the persistence of rare disorders such as leprosy. In this work, Dr. Link explains the extent of new, resurgent, and resistant diseases defying the abilities of science and medicine or finding strength in globalization or other facets of modernization."--BOOK JACKET.
