The Polio Paradox: Understanding and Treating "Post-Polio Syndrome" and Chronic Fatigue Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The book by a leading Polio Syndrome expert that reveals the hidden history of polio and its link with many health problems today. Polio is a disease of paradoxes, the major one being that although the threat of the "dreaded disease" ended with the Salk vaccine in 1954, many polio survivors are now experiencing the onset of "Post-Polio Syndrome" (PPS), new but related symptoms which may include chronic fatigue, muscle weakness, intolerance to cold, and more. In his groundbreaking book, Dr. Bruno has sounded an alarming wake-up call for both doctors and PPS sufferers, including a large number who were originally misdiagnosed with something other than polio and can now pursue the medical help they need. By revealing how the treatment of polio in the past has exacerbated what we now call PPS today, The Polio Paradox provides hope and new treatment information for an entire generation.

The Polio Paradox was published in Warner hardcover (0-446-52907-9) in 6/02. With over 1.6 million polio survivors living in America alone, including such high-profile names as Francis Ford Coppola, Mia Farrow, and Cher, this book will benefit a large audience. Dr. Bruno is the leading expert in the fight against PPS. He created the first center for the study and treatment of the syndrome, the Post-Polio Institute at Englewood Medical Center. His findings have been reported on CNN, the BBC, the CBC, NPR, and ABC's Nightline and Good Morning America, and in articles in Usa Today, Newsweek, and the New York Times. This book reveals new research on polio itself and on its possible link to chronic fatigue syndrome.
