Chronic Fatigue - Fibromyalgia - Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum
Dr. Teitelbaum is a dedicated doctor (translate that as real human being - not a machine!) who has worked with chronic fatigue syndrome. Seeing a gazillion options and ways of treating both chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia,
he systematically tested the options and developed a protocol that is now widely used with great success. His website also features several
books about the fundamental basic of good health - your own attitude!
Dr. Teitelbaum suffered from chronic fatigue syndrome while in medical school - so has an extremely realistic
understanding of the problems.
He is the Director of The Annapolis Center For Effective CFS/Fibromyalgia (FMS) Therapies. He has had first hand knowledge of the challenges faced by patients CFS/FMS. After coming down with CFS/FMS in medical school in 1975, Dr. Teitelbaum learned how to effectively treat it and has dedicated over 25 years of his career to treating and researching these devastating illnesses. As his treatment protocol for CFS/FMS continues to evolve, Dr. Teitelbaum is continually recognized as a leader in his field. He is frequently quoted as an expert in medical and other mass media including USA Today, Redbook, First For Women, Womens Day, Womens World and dozens of other major periodicals.
Dr. Teitelbaum is senior author of the ground-breaking study showing that CFS/FMS patients can have a 91% improvement rate with an integrated treatment protocol. The April, 2002, issue of the Journal of the American Academy of Pain Management noted:
"Teitelbaum's study is highly successful and makes Fibromyalgia a very treatable disorder. The study by Dr. Teitelbaum, et al., and years of clinical experience, makes this approach an excellent and powerfully effective part of the standard of practice for treatment of people who suffer from FMS [Fibromyalgia] and MPS [Pain] - both of which are common and devastating."
