The author, diagnosed with MS, discovered that adrenal fatigue was at the root of her physical condition, and was able to eliminate the symptoms of MS by treating her adrenal insufficiency. Overcoming Adrenal Fatigue is a well-organized compilation of what she learned about adrenal function. While not as "deep" as Dr. Wilson's book, she has covered all the important points and references all the current research on the subject, making it a much quicker and easier read.

This book is another "must-have", and has become my first choice recommendation for introducing people to adrenal fatigue. She has also written a book specifically about her recovery from MS, titled The MS Solution: How I Solved the Puzzle of My Multiple Sclerosis.
