CHERRY RED BOOKS
WHY ME? chronicles Alex Howard’s seven year journey with M.E. (also known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome), from the devastation of his diagnosis and two years spent bed-bound and unable to walk, subsequent suicidal feelings, his inspirational journey of research into every treatment he could find and, eventually, full recovery and a change in his life for the better.
WHY ME? is an invaluable source of guidance for anyone struggling with their health, facing a challenge that feels insurmountable, or searching for deeper meaning in their life. As well as providing a wealth of information about healing mind, body and soul, WHY ME? is also a story of love, triumph over adversity, and the ability within us to engineer change in our lives.
In this updated second edition, Alex shares the story of his ongoing journey since the first edition of WHY ME? was published, including his adventures setting up The Optimum Health Clinic, an award winning clinic specialising in M.E., which has now treated over 5,000 patients. There is also a detailed resource section including transcripts of interviews with Alex, and the clinic’s other two directors. Topics covered include why the clinic team believe orthodox medicine is so limited in treating M.E., the clinic’s model of M.E., and discussion of the three stages of the illness, along with easy to understand explanations of their treatments for M.E. and tips that M.E. sufferers can follow.
