We are the authors of Long Illness, a practical guide to living with long illnesses, from autoimmune disease to dysautonomia, long COVID to myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) to chronic pain or depression.
Using evidence-based integrative medicine, we’ve put together a program that legitimizes long illness and validates concerns where other physicians often dismiss them. Some things we cover are: • The foundations of long illness and what it means for your life• How to work with your medical team to get the care you need • Common symptoms • A wide range of accessible healing techniques • Your mental health with long illness and how to manage it• Long term solutions
