Book: From Fatigued to Fantastic!
4th Edition, Released September 2020
by Jacob Teitelbaum, M.D.
Reflecting all the latest research and treatments for CFIDS/FMS!
After its initial release in 1995, From Fatigued To Fantastic became the best-selling, authoritative source for teaching you how to recover your vitality, and address complex situations including fatigue, poor sleep, "brain fog," and widespread achiness. This new, just released, 4th edition, is now completely revised and updated. The most recent and relevant scientific information on addressing the human energy crisis is simplified, organized, and distilled into a simple "what to do now" format.
- Jacob Teitelbaum’s newest edition of From Fatigued to Fantastic! is a must read for all those suffering from chronic illness, as well as those treating patients with chronic illness. I use the information presented in this book every day in my practice with great success. I highly recommend this book for all to read and learn."
— David Brownstein, M.D., author of The Miracle of Natural Hormones
- I provide all my patients with From Fatigued to Fantastic! and find it a wonderful tool to open dialogue between the patient and myself. It is critical that the patient play a major role in his or her own healing. This book provides that bridge. I could not practice as effectively without this book."
— Terence Collins, M.D., MPH, MPS, chairman, program director of the Department of Preventive Medicine and Environmental Health
