(www.inimh.org) As a recovered sufferer of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia Stephanie is committed to helping patients with fatigue disorders. She understands through her own 10 year battle with CFS that a diagnosis of a fatigue syndrome can lead to immense frustration and a lot of "practitioner hopping" searching for answers. Stephanie aims to minimise patient’s frustration with a clear and concise treatment plan, adapted to the individual, aiming to improve fatigue and the patient’s quality of life. Stephanie also believes in getting the most out of the food you eat. She is a guest writer for the health website www.terawarner.com. Her articles have a strong emphasis on the power of healthy nutritious food to treat, improve and maintain health.
