Fascinating book for all clinicians! The author, Dr. Sarah Myhill, is a British physician specializes in determining the underlying causes of health problems, especially fatigue and the newer chronic problems of civilization. She clearly explains what mitochondria is, how it functions, its vital role in energy and diseases of malfunction, and how our diet, gut health, stress, and lifestyle choices can restore its function or continue our decline. References and resources are included.
Dr. Myhill deserves profound gratitude for her tireless crusading on behalf of the CFS/ME community, and even more gratitude for her work to help uncover the physiological processes behind the illness. E.P.C., 3/17 Amazon Customer Reviews
