"Mystery illness can be helped, and this book lays the groundwork for it!

Can a water-damaged building ruin your health and cause debilitating exhaustion, chronic pain, insomnia, anxiety, obesity and "brain fog?" Could a flood or wet basement make you sick even if it has long dried out? Building on its predecessor, Nutrition and Integrative Medicine for Clinicians: Volume Two is an essential, peer-reviewed resource for practitioners to help patients with various illnesses found in society, including those contracted from water-damaged structures, that can lay the groundwork for a healthy road to recovery.

Written by authors at the forefront of their respective fields, this book presents information for people "written off" as having a "mystery illness," fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue. Chronic inflammatory response syndrome (CIRS) is ubiquitous and affects many body systems, yet it is largely unrecognized by doctors, who misdiagnose CIRS patients daily. This book is a comprehensive guide on evaluating illnesses that are difficult to diagnose, including CIRS."
