I purchased this book for my Mum it has been an invaluable resource and covers a lot of things. Yoga, stretching, and self-hypnosis are some alternative treatments that some people report help with CFS. Keep in mind that there are many alternative treatments, dietary supplements, and herbal remedies touted to cure illnesses like CFS, which can end up doing a person more harm than good. Remember to always keep your health care provider informed of the other health care professionals and alternative practitioners you are seeing.
