In this episode we discuss WHY the focus of the book is so key for people to recover from ME/CFS, Fibromyalgia and POTS.
Claudia asks how I came up for the hypothesis for the pathogenesis of the illness (the root cause of the illness), and we discussed why it has touched so many people so deeply.
We also discuss some of the KEY points of the book, how the book unravels so many of the mysteries of this illness in terms of how people get sick and how they recover, as well as the endless list of symptoms.
