Synopsis: Mind-body Health and Stress Tolerance is a groundbreaking work which presents an overall theory explaining how mental attitude and lifestyle can profoundly affect physical and mental health. Based on the latest research into areas such as the placebo effect and the circadian body clock, this book shows how the mind interacts with the immune system and the body's hormone rhythms to influence health, vitality and stress tolerance. This book presents the first-ever cohesive theory to explain burnout, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS, also known as ME), irritable bowel syndrome, post-viral fatigue syndrome and other misunderstood illnesses, explaining why these illnesses occur and how they can be treated. Aimed at both patients and researchers, this book brings together the results of over one hundred research papers and the experiences of many patients who have recovered from chronic illnesses such as CFS. Comments by Peter DeMauro, M.D., Hackensack University Medical Center: "All in all, I am very impressed with it and rather enjoyed reading it I think it is great tool for patient education."
About the Author: David Jameson is an engineer and entrepreneur who developed CFS following a viral infection, and subsequently recovered. Not content with the lack of information about the illness, he spent three years researching the condition and talking to other patients, eventually developing a cohesive theory to explain CFS and related illnesses.
